    Bacon was tied to the door handles and sandwiches made of raw meat and sliced white bread were left at the entrance, in what was described in court by the judge as an 'an attack on England'.
    It certainly was. How dare anyone treat our lovely bacon in this way?

    I always wonder what these imbeciles think they're achieving, other than making themselves look like dicks. Muslims aren't forbidden from handling bacon, they're just not supposed to eat it. So putting it on a doorhandle is just a waste of bacon

    And I wonder if his family think it was a battlefield worth dying on.

    Much as the Daily Mail would love us to assume it, nothing in the article AFAICS says this was a revenge killing by muslim convicts.

    (although that's not to say it wasn't - I wonder if we'll be told if in the event it was)

    As there is not the slightest hint of that in the articles I think that needs to be rephrased as "Much as lefties love to assume that the Daily Mail would love us to assume it"

    There isn't anything at all in the article to suggest such a thing, so I'm not sure why you say the Mail wants people to think that.

    In fact, for the Mail, it's remarkably restrained and purely factual in its approach. Wonders will never cease. (Or they'll rewrite it to be more inflammatory later.)

    Ah Xoggoth. You are perfect clickbait fodder. Not even aware it is clickbait!

    The BBC headline just has the innocuous "Bacon on mosque offender dies in prison". The Mail has the inflammatory "Man jailed for leaving a bacon sandwich outside a mosque is found dead in prison halfway through his 12-month sentence". You see the difference?

    Me either...

    No relevant difference.

    How does that headline imply, or suggest it wanted people to think, it was a revenge killing by Muslim convicts?
