So, there's zero chance of it being the other way around? That the BBC has it right, and the tabloid is prevaricating?
Reminds one of this gem...

Most Muslims are of the opinion that at least one of their male children should be named after the most holy of holy men, Muhammed. Other religions do not necessarily have this cultural anomaly

Doesn't mean that they're taking over

This is clear evidence that we do live in a dictatorship and are constantly lied to by the media and it is more evidence of ethnic English clearing and the Islamisation of England.
Yes, because two different news media outlets don't agree on a story. And since when is the Daily Mail a legitimate news outlet? Last I heard it was similar to the National Enquirer.

You take Daily Mail seriously. That should tell a lot about the level of intelligence we are dealing here.

Obviously, Ingy considers himself to be more naturally aligned to the frothing and rabidly lying right-wing gutter press, the sort of paper that thinks nothing of deliberately distorting facts and of glibly glossing over the deficiencies of the right. Although, it quite rightly reports on the deficiencies of New Labour, which is slightly to the right of Attila the Hun anyway, with its penchant for jailing, censoring, authoritarianism, the nanny state, the police state, banning, feeding frenzies at the trough, quangos, the supporting of torture and warfare etc.
Oops! My abiding love for politicians is showing.

The Daily Mail concluded that the name Mohammed was the most popular boys name after it added together all the possible spellings of Mohammed that had been registered (eg Mohammed, Muhammed etc, etc). The original story, as reported by the BBC, was in regards to the "official" most popular names list. The compilers of this list do not add together different name spellings - of any name. Hence Mohammed was not at the top of their list. And even if it were, that doesn't mean that there are way more Muslims being born than non-Muslims or that they are "taking over". Merely that a disproportionate number of Muslim boys born will be given that name.
Are you not embarrassed to be falling hook, line and sinker for this?

I like your definition of "clear evidence," Ingy. Says a lot about your mental processes.

Is that a beauty pageant?

Um, when I read that I thought that meant that, you know, the Daily Mail was the one that's lying?
Oh wait. It's white supremacists we're dealing with. Every sentence out of their mouths contains at least one lie. Move along, let's not give any attention to their paranoid delusions.

What about all those folks from spanish speaking countries who name their sons "Hey-Zeus"?
11/11/2010 3:56:19 PM
The Catholic Spanish and Hispanic populations tend to name many of their kids after Mary and Joseph.

The tabloids added all variant spellings of Mohammed, while keeping the other names separate (Oliver/Ollie/Olivier).
Then there's the fact that, even then, Mohammed makes only a tiny percent of the TOTAL names. The only thing the chart shows is the overwhelming popularity of Mohammed among British Muslims.

Sorry, as a person who has lived in England so many years, does any person in England really take the Daily mail seriously?
11/12/2010 1:03:44 PM
The Daily Mail lied?
Honestly, I'm shocked. Shocked!
11/13/2010 2:50:53 AM
Yes, I'm afraid people do indeed take the Daily Mail seriously. And they take what it says as gospel.

My father told me this. Every time I pointed out it was just plain wrong he replied 'Well, it said so in the paper'.
The Daily Fail is known as the 'Daily Liar' for a reason.
Actually a colleague of mine had a similar same thing, his mother told him of some change to the building regulations that would give local councils Draconian powers
Colleague to mother 'No, that's untrue'
Mother: 'No, it's a fact, I read it in the Daily Mail'
The conversation continues in this vein for a while...then
Colleague: 'Mother, what do I do for a living?'
Mother 'You're the Council's chief building inspector...'

There's a Internet blog, Daily Mail Watch, (with related forum), that lists & details the type of headlines this "Newspaper" pumps out every day...
Needless to say, most of it's headlines are somewhat xenophobic...

The Daily Mail contains facts. Look at this. The Human Magnet! That's a fact!

Would that be the same 'Kathy Geminiani' featured on the website 'Quackwatch'? Oh yes, I believe it is...profiteering off cancer patients, she must be about the lowest of the bottom-feeders.
