Follow up to the Alibi-Brown, Sean Gabb posting

It seems that the Beeb has finally allowed Mr Gabb acess to the tapes of the programme from which he was eveicted after Race junky Alibi Brown suggested that all whire Britons were only kept in check by the law, whereas they would prefer to be going round murdering members of our ethnic minorities.

Mr Gabb comments,

On Monday the 16th February 2004, I took part in a BBC World Service
discussion of multi-culturalism with Yasmin Alibhai Brown. In this
discussion, the presenter tried to entrap me into making racist comments.
Then, when Mrs Brown did make a grossly racist comment, I was abruptly
removed from the discussion before I could make full use of this. My voice
can be heard fading out, as the presenter makes a grim attempt at thanking
me for my contribution. At the end of the discussion, my name was
conspicuously absent from the credits. Little wonder George Orwell based
the Ministry of Truth on the BBC.

Now, 13 days, four telephone calls and two e-mails later, the BBC has
provided me with a tape of the broadcast. This means we can consider what
to do, now that we have objective proof of what was said.

The recordings are here, here, and here.

He is attempting to hoist them by their own petard, the Race relations legislation. Now if you want some fun, follow the instructions below.

Please feel free to make your own
complaints. The more complaints received, and the more from all over the
world, the greater the embarrassment and the greater chance of action.

It is very important for there to be many complaints to the police. These
people are supposed always to investigate alleged racist incidents. If
they investigate Mrs Brown, we can refer to her forever after as "Yasmin
Alibhai Brown, who has been investigate by the Metropolitan Police for
racism". They do this to us all the time. Time to turn the tables!

Make sure to include broadcast details and details of law broken. Also

Make sure to include broadcast details and details of law broken. Complain
about the closure of debate which amounted to unfair protection of one
contributor and unfair treatment of another. Also give links to
recordings. Say that you have complained to the police and the CRE. If you
have no reply within five days, write again.

Send e-mail to letters@independent.co.uk and to

service people are trained to respond, whereas editorial people hardly
ever do.

If you wish to submit a letter for publication in the newspaper, it must
include the sender's name, postal address and daytime telephone number.

The fun of complaining to The Independent is that it employs Mrs Brown.
