The Bomb Plot That Didn't Make The News Headlines

I'm rather shocked, though I don't know why, that this news item hasn't received greater coverage. I'd like to think that with enough internet oomph, that it could at least make a passing item on pop-news leftie programs like The Wright Stuff here in the UK... so as a contribution towards that, I wanted to post this item here on ATSNN.
Police claimed last week that they had seized what was potentially the largest ever haul of chemical explosives plus a rocket launcher and a nuclear and biological protection suit.

A lawyer acting for the prosecution said the people that the haul was seized from had “some kind of masterplan”.

But for once the national media did not react with stories about a plot to blow up a football ground or bring down airliners, or some other gross threat.

And the reason was that those arrested were not “Muslim terrorists” but people linked to the Nazi British National Party (BNP).

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

I find this absolutely astonishing.

That a potential terrorist plot could be swept under the rug so effiently, seemingly because it was non-muslim. It speaks volumes about what constitutes news, what constitutes terrorism, and why those definition parameters are so narrow.

Seems like the mods here didn't think it was that news-worthy either.

I wonder if the perpetrators had been muslim, would the story be of more interest?

well the problem is, the articles have no references of proof...and its from a VERY left wing website (sworn enemies of BNP etc).

The media is VERY anti-BNP. Undercover investigations etc This would be gold.

Article from paper from area where this occured -

Burnley Citizen - 11 October 2006

A FORMER British National Party member has been arrested after police found bomb-making equipment at his house.

Police sealed off the home of Robert Cottage in Talbot Street, Colne, after storming the address and discovering chemical components that could be used to make explosives.

However Superintendent Neil Smith moved to reassure residents and stressed: "It is not a bomb making factory" and added that it was not related to terrorism.
