    What this report by the BBC doesn't mention is that its not all white British against the rest.
    The survey shows that there is tension between different communities, especially within the West Midlands where there is increased tensions between Black and Asian communities, this manifested itself at the height of the 2011 riots.

    The Guardian has a slightly different slant on the report

      Oh by the way it doesn't mention that it's not all British against the rest is because that doesn't come into it at all, they say "People were asked whether they would describe themselves as prejudiced "against people of other races"." no mention of white British at all. Nothing to suggest that they had not asked Asians who said they were prejudiced against Africans.
      Don't look for controversy where none exists.

    Good catch, everybody always claims they know of media manipulation, but as soon is something tugs their heart strings, everybody forgets.

      The conclusions were made by a research organisation called NatCen which is 3/4 funded by HM government (the taxpayer).
      Rather than publishing their so called findings in the normal way in a few months time they decided to drop it on the desk of left leaning media outlets. Maybe they thought it would counter the rise in support for parties calling for lower immigration?

        The BBC is not left leaning, the Guardian hardly at all.

          I don't know where you have got your ideas from John but the BBC is politically left leaning. The Guardian is the voice of the left of centre.
          Why would these two media outlets report only part of the findings of the report?
          a) Because it suited their own political slant
          b) Because that is all they were given by NatCen

            You mean anybody who is impartial is left leaning? I suppose I'll go along with that.

              I think you need to look up impartial John.

              Then maybe watch the BBC news for an hour or two.

                And in what way do they not treat all rivals equally?

                What would you recommend as an impartial news source? Sky perhaps?

                  It appears that the BBC is extremely biased!

                    Well it was the single biggest issue of the night (UKIP).

                    A well worded and possibly correct petition.

                    I seem to recall though that non of the candidates except UKIP and the BNP really wanted to be interviewed, not to sure why, however the panel; in the studio where very vociferous, mostly against the UKIP spokespersons.
                    And yes I did stay up until 3pm flicking channels between Sky and BBC news, god (if there is one) knows why?
