Note: The term “Asian” in Britain refers to people from Pakistan.

A TEENAGE boy was knocked unconscious with a house brick, stabbed with a screwdriver and left for dead in a vicious race attack. Joseph Haigh, 14, was savagely beaten by the gang of up to 15 Asian youths in Thornhill on Friday night. The gang hurled racist abuse at him, constantly referring to the colour of his skin, yet police refused to classify the attack as racially-motivated.

Joseph’s dad Jonathan, 42, of Thornhill, said: “It was a racist attack.” They were calling him “white trash” and “white this, that and the other.” This is why people are angry about what is happening in this country. If it had been an attack by whites on an Asian lad it would have been a definite race attack. When it’s the other way round they don’t want to know.

Joseph was out with his friends at around 9pm on Friday near Thornhill’s Rectory Park when the gang of Asians, said to be aged 18-20, came at them. Joseph’s friends scattered and Joseph tried to make off on his bike, only to be confronted by one of the thugs who smashed him in the head with half a brick.

Mr Haigh, a lorry driver, told how that blow knocked his son unconscious and he instinctively put his hands over his face to protect himself.Another youth lunged at him with a screwdriver while others kicked and punched him about the head. Mr Haigh said: “They went to stab him in the face and it was only because he had his hands up that they missed.” He was stabbed in one hand, his other hand was broken and a cut on his forehead was down to the bone. If they had hit him a bit harder with the house brick they could have killed him. They just left him for dead.
