White people keep out

The BBC calls them "no go for white people" in Oldham. I prefer the technical term "colony" though "beachhead" or "foothold" would do just as well.

Read the report if you have the stomach: True to form, the Beeb cannot cover a story about religiously motivated violence and segregation without blaming the victim - "Unlike their parents they will not tolerate being victims of racism." - or proffering an apologetic for the perps - "Many Asian youths say they take the law into their own hands because they have no confidence in the police." On that last point, if nothing else, we might find common ground.
