What the BBC did not want you to see
This is footage of London's recent 'March for Gaza' or 'Freedom for Palestine'. Cranmer had been left with the distinct impression that this was a contained and relaxed affair, with nothing more untoward than a little sedate shoe-throwing at Downing Street.
It is when one views this angry mob - with their distinct cries of 'Allahu Akhbar' as they attack members of Her Majesty's police force - that one is left with the distinct impression that there is a media conspiracy to convey that all is well; that the peace and security of the United Kingdom is not imperiled; that Islam does indeed mean 'peace'.
And it is also not until one views such footage that one understands the full implications of Lord Ahmed's threat to call upon 10,000 Muslims to protest around Parliament in order to intimidate and harass the guardian of our liberties into compliance with his demands.
Why do we tolerate this intolerance?
If one ceases to tolerate the intolerant, does one not become equally intolerant?
There is a fine line between toleration and appeasement.
But Cranmer cannot help wondering how the BBC would have handled this story had the violent mob consisted of protesting Jews or white Christian-looking types.
