"GAMMON" INSULT LOGGED WITH POLICE AS ANTI-ENGLISH RACE 'HATE' CRIME


CALLING THE BREXIT SUPPORTING ENGLISH “GAMMON” HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY LOGGED WITH THE POLICE AS A HATE INCIDENT

I am setting out below my correspondence with Essex Police over reporting Matt Zorb- Cousins’ slur against those who have supported Brexit, the majority of whom identify themselves as English.  He has deliberately insulted them as “Gammon”.  On reflection it was clear that these are also racial stereotypes in what he says such people look like. 

People who read my blog regularly will know that I have been urging people to use the Left’s “Hate Crime” agenda against them.  So I followed my own advice!

Initially in this case Essex Police were not keen to log the case as a “Hate Crime” and I therefore had to again follow my own advice as to how to make them log it.

I thought that the resulting correspondence is a good read and also a good lesson in how to make sure that “Hate Crime” cases are logged against Left-wing figures.

Here is the correspondence:-

Dear Sir

Re:  Report of “Hate Crime  "  /“Hate incident” “Gammon”

I wish to report Matt Zarb-Cousin for publically making insulting and offensive remarks against the majority of English who voted for Brexit in a manner which was illegally discriminatory within the meaning of the Equality Act in that he was discriminating against the Nationality, National Identity, National Origin and Ethnicity of the English.

He wrote his "Gammon" article in February in “Huck” which can be found here >>> http://www.huckmagazine.com/perspectives/opinion-perspectives/defence-calling-people-gammon/  

Mr Zarb-Cousin was also on the Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2 to talk about this at 12.30 on 14th May 2018.  

Taken together his article and tweets and Facebook comments on his accounts are anti-White and anti-English (racist), anti-male (sexist), anti-older (ageist).  His comments are grossly offensive, abusive and insulting both within the meaning of Section’s 4A and 5 of the Public Order Act 1986 and within the meaning of Section 127 of the Communications Act.
   
In the circumstances please confirm that you have logged my report and let me have the crime reference number.  Please confirm what you intend to do to investigate this anti-English “Hate Speech” Crime.

Yours faithfully

Good afternoon Mr Tilbrook,

Thank you for your email.
In relation to the article on the magazine website, it would be advised if you are offended by this article to complain directly to the magazine as they would have control over the editing and publishing of the article from the writer. The magazine Huck is published and run by the London publishing company TCO London.

Again with the Jeremy Vine show, it would be advised to make a complaint directly to the BBC or to Ofcom in relation to their programming.

Following any complaints, should the publishing houses/companies deem this breaches any criminal offences they should in fact remove the offending articles.

At this time it would not fall within Essex Police to take a report of crime. This has been checked against the home office counting rules and national crime recording standards. If there is a crime that requires recording this would fall to the police force area in which it was published.

Kind regards,
S B

Non-Emergency Telephone: 101 (Calling from within Essex) Non-Emergency Telephone: 03003334444 (Calling from outside Essex). When through to an operator, request to be put through to the Crime Bureau.

Dear Ms Barnes

Thank you for your email.   I wish to make a complaint of these matters as Hate Crimes.  The offending publications did not originate in Essex but were published into Essex and as such are within your jurisdiction. 

Also I would remind you of College of Policing Guidance on the recording “Hate Crime” >>>http://library.college.police.uk/docs/college-of-policing/Hate-Crime-Operational-Guidance.pdf .

Section number 1.2.3. Perception-based recording of hate crime

For recording purposes, the perception of the victim, or any other person (see 1.2.4 Other person), is the defining factor in determining whether an incident is a hate incident, or in recognising the hostility element of a hate crime. The victim does not have to justify or provide evidence of their belief, and police officers or staff should not directly challenge this perception. Evidence of the hostility is not required for an incident or crime to be recorded as a hate crime or hate incident.

Crimes and incidents must be correctly recorded if the police are to meet the objective of reducing under-reporting and improve understanding of the nature of hate crime. The alleged actions of the perpetrator must amount to a crime under normal crime recording rules. If this is the case, the perception of the victim, or any other person, will decide whether the crime is recorded as a hate crime. If the facts do not identify any recordable crime but the victim perceived it to be a hate crime, the circumstances should be recorded as a non-crime hate incident and not a hate crime. 


Yours sincerely

Mr Tilbrook,

Thank you for your link to the college of policing website, although we do have access to this ourselves.

Under the home office counting rules the location of any offences would in fact fall to where the article was published from and in the case of the radio show where this would have been broadcast from, which is the BBC’s broadcasting house in London.

However, as you have stated you perceive these articles to be offensive and live within Essex, a hate incident has been created on our system and the reference number is EP-20180519-0726. This will be assessed by a hate crime officer for any further action they deem necessary.

Kind regards,

I hope that the above correspondence will encourage everyone else who is annoyed at the “Gammon” slur to complain also to Essex Police and quote the response. 

If you are minded to do so you can email them on Crime.bureau@Essex.pnn.police.uk and quote the police crime reference number EP-20180519-0726, saying that you find what was said to be a “racist, anti-English” and “grossly offensive” remark and that you want to be added as a complainant in the case as you were also offended.  Also ask for Essex Police to keep you informed as to the progress of their investigation.

  1. Thank you for this Robin. I have logged your email. As you know I am particularly offended by 'pale, male and stale' and also 'dead white male'

    there are various other anti-white racist words such as 'honkey' that we should be aware of.

    Cheers,

    Scilla

  2. I have read the article in "Huck" magazine and it is clear that this word, "gammon" is used as a term of, at best, derision and at worst abuse and is aimed exclusively at English men. Further, its use is intended to write-off their opinions. It is an example of the Politically Correct behaving in a way that they would describe as "disgusting" or "appalling" were similar language to be used about any other group. The replies to your "tweet" on the subject were almost entirely negative, however, which suggests that offensive words used about the English are deemed acceptable and only people of foreign extraction have any right to complain. Depressing.

  3. Charles Dickens used the term https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/staggers/2018/05/turns-out-charles-dickens-invented-concept-gammon-1838

  4. Gammon was a term used to describe angry blustering political outrage from an individual it mentions no race or nationality.
    If you are offended by such a word I'm sure there a safe space available for your sensitivities.

  7. I could not bring myself to watch the programme on Channel 4 the other evening about a revisiting of those whom the English deem to be our national heroes, accusing them of being racists and even proposing having their statues torn down. From the snatch I dared to watch of the programme, the presenter was a black woman.

    Chief among her targets were Nelson and Churchill, both of whom saved us from invasion from the Continent. Nelson was damned for being involved in the slave trade (so were David Cameron's family) and Churchill for being a racist. I believe that he said some rather unflattering things about Muslims which most Europeans at the time would have been deemed to be accurate. In addiion, he was accused of being a racist for pledging to keep Britain white, something which ill health prevented him from achieveing. Krishnan Guru Murthy, a stalwart of the to the left-biased Channel Four News brought this up with Churchill's grandson, Nicholas Soames. Soames's retort was to say that Churchill was a man of his times just as Guru Murthy is one of his.

    It would seem that we now have to view the world and our history not from a European perspective but from that of the global south. This would of course damn all post-imperial European countries. The thinking must then be that Europe has contributed nothing to their former colonies but merely exploited them and they would be much happier if they had been left to trundle on in the Middle Ages or the Stone Age.

    There is no doubt that the aim of our enemies is to eradicate Europeans off the face of the planet through intermarriage or a rising up of the colonisers from the global south against us. Anybody who opposes this, like members of Britain First or Tommy Robinson of the EDL is now being quietly incarserated. I pose again the question I have posed many times before. Why do the millions from the third world want to come and live here and be subject to our evil racism?

    And yes, Churchill was right. I would urge people to watch the new channel Talking Pictures TV with its many films made here from the 60s backwards and see what has become of us through unwanted mass third world immigration. A judge is calling for the banning of long kitchen knives because they are a favourite weapon in the case of black on black crime.

    There is a new racist crime now of cultural appropriation because of the complaint by a Chinese American against a white girl who wore a Chinese dress for her school prom. The irony of this is overwhelming. Have not the Chinese appropriated European culture hook, line and sinker and why is this Chinese man in what was a country of European settlement appropriating Anglo-Saxon culture? All those who have arrived here in Europe in their millions thanks to the Left's cultural Marxism funded by those like George Soros for their own ends, should, following that logic, return to their ancestral homes accused of the crime of appropriating European culture. It would be nice to think that this would happen before many Europeans become minorities in their own countries and the Left cheers, totally oblvious in their usual infantile way, of the disastrous consequences which will ensue from their actions.
