British Lawmaker Stabbed By "Asian" Woman

He's alive. Some reports say he was merely "attacked," which suggests a less dangerous attack than a stabbing.

And some reports don't mention anything about the perp.

I'm posting this not because it's so terribly important but because I guessed that if I searched further some report would let slip out the news everyone else is concealing, that is, to which demographic group this attacker belongs to.

This report says she's "Asian," which in England usually means "Pakistani." (It could also mean Far East/Pacific Rim Asian, as we in America use it, but it does frequently mean Pakistani. And that's not some sort of euphemism -- it's just that in Britain they've noticed Pakistan is in fact part of the Asian continent, and so use that descriptor.)

Friday, former UK Treasury Minister and sitting Labour MP Stephen Timms was stabbed by a woman while attending his first advice session with his constituents since the 6th May general election, said officials.


The incident happened at the Beckton Globe Library in east London when the former Treasury minister was holding a constituency surgery. Police officials said a 21-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the attack on the lawmaker, but the motive behind the attack is not yet clear.

This usually means the motive is fairly clear but they're looking for alternate possibilities.


Though the police did not provide any further details about the incident

The police refusing to provide further details about the incident usually means the details are precisely as I am imagining them to be.

...British news agencies reported that Timms was stabbed twice in the abdomen. The suspect arrested in connection with the attack was reportedly an Asian woman with mental health problems.

A local imam just announced plans to erect a 27-story mosque in Stephen Timms' punctured kidney, in order to "bring a message of peace and harmony to his digestive organs."

This may turn out to be merely a deranged woman, and it could turn out that here "Asian" means Chinese.

But you usually know what it means when the cops start getting all coy.
