Why is this information being suppressed?

It is interesting that the British High Commission is pushing for expats to register and vote in the upcoming EU membership referendum. Last week in Crewe in the UK several secondary school pupils took exception to four immigrants who were sexually accosting a female teacher. Seven of them approached the immigrants to explain that their actions were not acceptable and all of them received stab wounds which required hospitalisation. The four immigrants were carrying knives. The police were called and intervened and the matter received a throwaway comment in the local paper dumbed down by the authorities as a minor incident “which took place”. Such a ‘minor incident’ that several families decided to keep their children away from the school for the following weeks. I recall the days that the stabbing of seven schoolboys would have been a major incident and fully reported. How are the expats expected to vote when information is being suppressed? In a democracy surely the voter has a right to know all the pros and cons.
