  1. How do you know that a "very small amount of muslim community inform the police"? What if I told you that of the 3000 people that are on police watch list the majority are because of tip offs from Muslims. In this case the people did the absolute right thing. They identified he was a problem and they went informed the authorities a number of times. The fact that the police did nothing is not the fault of those who reported him. This is a guy who was reported 5 times, went back and forth to Libya yet the security services didn't investigate him further. There were so many red flags that were missed. I actually don't blame the security services. Like the rest of the public sector their resources have been cut over the last 8 years so they are spread so thin that they will miss people because they simply do not have the resources. I am also sick and tired of hearing that muslims do not condemn these type of incidents. It is just wrong because we do and will continue to do so. One lady got so sick of hearing this type of misinformation that she decided to log condemnation from high profile muslims/organisations on an online database: https://muslimscondemn.com/
  2. Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has told the Lancashire Telegraph that despite Connor Mahoney being offered a new deal he expects that the youngster will reject the deal and sign for another club. Mowbray said “I have sat opposite and spoke with him two or three times and tried to advise him on his career. “For me he should stay and play 100 games for this club over the next two seasons and if his talent dictates that he outgrows us and he has an offer from the Premier League, and we’re stuck in the Championship in two years time, then I wouldn’t stand in his way. Personally I have told him that the most important thing is that he plays football. “If he goes and gets a better contract offer but is sat on the bench then they would be wasted years for him. It does not look like that advice has been heeded, it looks as though he is going to test the market, but all I can do is advise him to think about football and then his talent will decide everything else.” Due to Mahoney being under 24 and having been offered a deal Rovers would be due compensation. This can be either mutually agreed with the club he signs for or be set by a tribunal. However the money that Rovers will eventually receive will be well below Mahoney's market value.

  4. Reports that Abedi was reported to the police 5 times. Twice by his members of his extended family, twice by his friends and once by the local imam with the last report being earlier this year. If these reports are true then clearly the muslim community did try to warn the police but there seems to have been some sort of security services failing for not fully following up on those reports.
  5. That is one area that needs addressing and urgently. The people who want to spread the extremist ideologies start as you say by showing what is happening in Palestine and take it from there. What the communities and government agencies need to root out are the "recruiters". These are shadowy figures who identify, recruit and fill young people minds with these ideologies which lead to what happened on Monday night.
  6. Like I said earlier I can only talk about the situation in Blackburn. After 7/7 a number of the younger generation got together and agreed that we need to start influencing the mosque committees who were dominated by the “older” generation who had very much adopted the “head in the sand approach” and as community we were at a massive crossroads, sitting on our hands and doing nothing was simply not an option. Over the last 10 year the mosque system has been completely overhauled, there are proper curriculum’s in place, there are regular sessions in the majority of mosques where acts of terror are discussed and kids are given examples from the Quran and other religious texts of why these are acts are not tolerated within Islam. Also crucially the majority of kids are taught by imams who were born and educated in the UK (previously the practice was to bring in fully trained imams from abroad). These imams will have been through approved training via the British Council of Mosques and can communicate with the young people at level the imams who come from outside the county cannot. Also as I said previously there is much more co-operation with the police. What we are fighting is an ideology and one that I believe we can’t beat with violence. We will beat it via Education. That is to educate the young people to turnaway from, challenge and report extremist ideologies. Back in 2007 we all said that this was not something that could be achieved overnight, there was/is no quick fix it could take decades to defeat this ideology. However today is not the day for talking about these issues or apportioning blame, there will be plenty of time for that in weeks and months to come. Today is a day to show respect and offer help to those who have been directly affected by this horrific act of violence.
  7. Tony Mowbray has confirmed that following talks with Venky's in Pune he will remain as Rovers manager. Talking to the club's official website he said "I'm very happy with the discussions that I have had, I've met the owners, I've met the people that I am working for, and I am very happy to move forward. Whilst we were all disappointed with the end of last season I see it as an opportunity to now move the club in the right direction and grasp this opportunity whilst it is there for us. The owners were supportive of my ideas and plans, and they have assured me of their financial commitment to help achieve our targets. It was all very positive." View full article

  9. I am a muslim and have been appalled by the attack last night as with all of the other attacks that have happened. It is however completely ridiculous to blame the actions of these nutters who are only muslim in name but none of us consider them to be muslim. The community in Blackburn and the mosques in particular ALL now have proper education programmes that lead people away from extremism. The mosques also work closely with the police to root out the people who spout this hate and go to any Friday sermon by the mulla and you will find an anti ISIS message in them. Prior to 7/7 the community was in denial. The horrific events in London changed all of that. Of course like the rest of the country the muslim community will look at what happened last night and see if there is more that coulf be done. To finish please remember in the immediate aftermath of what happened last night amongst those helping were muslim taxi drivers offering to help people and muslim doctors treating the injured. The terrorist scum want to divide us. We can’t let them.
  10. Her whole pitch has been about Strong and Stable leadership. This is anything but Strong and Stable. It was completely ill thought out policy by a party who thought that they could say anything in this election and it would not affect the polls. She looked flustered today when being asked questions that had not been vetted. No wonder she doesn't want to take part in an head to head debate.
  11. Rovers boss Tony Mowbray is expected to arrive in Pune today to hold talks with Venky's. Mowbray has been keen to hold talks with Venky's in order to establish their what their future vision for the club and has suggested that he would decide on his own future after holding talks with the owners “I will have some talks in the next week or two with the people who matter at this football club, Whether the journey for me continues or not. Let’s see. If it does, I can only see it being really strong if we can keep the right players." Rovers face squad faces a big overhaul as 9 players were released last week this included club captain Jason Lowe, Danny Guthrie, Hope Akpan, Wes Brown and Adam Henley. It is looking increasingly likely that Connor Mahoney will reject the new contract that has been offered to him and reports in the national press have suggested that Lenihan and Mulgrew are also considering their futures.

  13. I was with Virgin Media and had the same problems Biddy. There peak time throttling of speed was atrocious, this coupled with their "superhub" having very poor wifi range drove me crazy. I had to stick it out for a year but changed to BT as soon as that year was up.
  14. Local and national media reports have suggested that accounting firms KPMG and Deloitte have been bought into Rovers this week to look at the club finances. At this stage it is not clear whether these firms have be appointed by Venky's or the club's bank the State Bank of India, or their reason for being at Ewood. The club suffered relegation to League 1 and income is expected to be down by a minimum of £5 million.
