‪@Zehra_Zaidi‬ Thanks. Sorry to hear about that. I have never got too close to them in the streets happily. Hope you're well.

US media might want to note Britain First's threats of "militant direct action" against any elected British Muslim politicians ("occupiers") to understand just how extreme they are…

I am not saying they don't get any voice. Eg, quoted within a reported package. But Britain First should *not* waltz onto Breakfast TV sofas & eg the 810am slot on Today (That did happen with Anjem Choudary after his Woolwich murderer pals were convicted…)

‪@sundersays‬ Good set of tweets. I’ve had this group publicly come at me on the streets in Taleban Hunting Squad hoodies. It is not pleasant.

It would be v.interesting to read experts/practitioners in broadcasting on this topic of how to gauge how much airtime to give an extreme, defunct zero support party (with criminal/violent track record) who become the subject of a big UK-US controversy.

Reporting has to explain who Britain First are. As a now *defunct* political party & a hate group which has collected more criminal convictions than it has stood in elections recently, there should be a limit to how big a share of voice they get in this.

The story is: US President tweets racist, violent and v.unpopular political party who won 56 votes (0.14%) last time they stood for any Parliamentary seat (Rochester, 2014) and who are now statutorily deregistered by Electoral Commission…

Response  to  Trump  tweets  will  reinforce  broad  anti-racism  norm  across  mainstream  British  politics.  But  Britain  First  get  profile  boost  to  reach  most  toxic  1-5%.  As  with  Anjem  Choudary_  hope  media  think  seriously  re  how  much  oxygen  hate  group  merits  in  context  of  reporting  story.  from iphone

Toxic firefighting chemicals may have been spread across Victorian waterways
Potentially carcinogenic firefighting chemicals discovered in a Victorian wetland may have been spread across the state because of a commercial fishing practice known as “ranching”.

The Victorian Environment Protection Authority said testing by the Department of Defence had discovered “elevated” levels of per-and poly-fluoroalkyl substances – commonly knows as PFAS – in animals from the Heart Morass wetlands near Sale in eastern Victoria.

The wetland is popular with fishers and hunters, and while the EPA said people who had eaten the animals were not “at risk of any adverse health effects”, it warned against eating animals from the area.

The results of the testing have not been released, but the EPA said elevated PFAS concentrations had been found in fish, eels and ducks.
