First they said the bombers must be foreign born terrorists abusing how easy it is to enter this country. Then when the evidence pointed to British born bombers they went on about how London is a hotbed of fundamentalism labelling it 'Londonistan'. Now that the bombers are from the North of England they are going on about how we need more national pride in this country, i.e. more nationalism (see Boris Johnson). When the BNP start stirring up trouble claiming to be 'fighting for Britain', will the right wing media change their argument yet again?
Like a religion reacting to new scientific discoveries that rubbish scriptures, the right wing either twist the facts or refocus their claims altogether. When are they going to realise they are just as wrong as the fundamentalists? Extremism is not the answer!
The fact the bombers are from the North of England is not all that surprising really, as Chris Applegate argues, Muslims are much less integrated there than in London, probably due to the higher poverty up North, only one of the bombers had a regular job.
No if we want to address how the bombers came about we have to look at a catalogue of causes ranging from poverty and racism through to agrievance at our foreign policy. There is no way of getting away from those facts.
