If Sir Robert Peel were alive today...
But two points.
1) Why is this in a national newspaper? In the general scale of newsworthiness, this offensive prank is Hillingdon Times material.
2) The police reaction
Detective Chief Inspector Tony Hester, of Hillingdon police, said: "This is a particularly grotesque act which has outraged the family as well as the whole community.
"Because of the nature of the incident a criminal investigation was immediately initiated and is still ongoing. DCC4 - Racial and Violent Crime Task Force - was involved in the initial investigation and officers from the Community Safety Unit are in constant liaison with them.
"We are also, of course, keeping the family and local community informed of developments.["]
Not just issuing a crime number and forgetting about it, then? And the "local community" is being kept informed. I wish I had a "local community" that had to be sucked up to and kept sweet in case we took offence at something and rioted or otherwise embarrassed the authorities.
The £5,000 reward has been offered by Scotland Yard and the hospital. The family is being represented by human rights solicitor Imran Khan.
"Scotland Yard", note. This incident has been referred to a specialist national unit, DCC4 - the Racial and Violent Crime Task Force.
I wonder if, as and when I end up on a slab in the morgue and some joker puts an apple between my teeth and sticks a steel spike up my jacksy — just as a bit of fun, like, innit — I wonder if the police will devote national resources to the case and offer a reward.

Or perhaps the article should have read, "Muslim woman found covered in bacon in hospital morgue."
Don't they teach newspaper reporters bloody English anymore?

Ahh, it was probably cheap, water-filled Danish rubbish...

However, so is the £5,000 reward which has been offered by Scotland Yard and the hospital.
A simple firing would be enough - that's taxpayer's cash they're hosing around.
I guess those cuts just aren't deep enough yet...

Thhe French husband says to his wife "pass the honey, honey."
The Italian man says to his wife "Pass the sugar, sweety."
The polish guy, not quite understanding the situation, says to his wife "pass the bacon you fat fucking pig".
Muslims in the Middle East seem to be so much less easily offended then their cousins here.

Splendid. But they didn't come round my way with leaflets and simpering smiles. But then I am in a larger 'community' of everyone and not in a multi-culti block aiming to impose a 'no go' area.
Still, make sit easier to find them to hand out the leaflets.
