A FORMER British National Party member has been accused of possessing the largest amount of chemical explosives of its type ever found in the country.
Robert Cottage, 49, of Talbot Street, Colne, appeared before Burnley magistrates charged with possession of an explosive substance.

Fascinating. The largest haul ever in this country? I would have thought that after the years of terrorism perpetuated against England by the IRA that that would entail a very large amount of explosives indeed. It is shocking that I haven't seen this reported anywhere in the mainstream media.
Could it be unreported because it does not fit the agenda of those who supply the daily propaganda? White terrorists do nothing to aid the demonisation of folk who at least partially share an ideology with those we are currently engaged in military action against on foreign soil. People don't want to hear about the fact that any individual, regardless of colour or creed can be a potential terrorist threat. It's so much nicer to have a target visibly different from ourselves to direct our ire towards. It's so much easier to divide and rule if our "enemy" is easily distinguishable through the clothes they wear, the colour of their skin, or the rituals that they partake in.
