more of a group hug really
A nice story.
they were looking forward to a good sing-song and rant outside the mosque, maybe chuck a few things, have a ruck with the police or some left wing crusties, then off to the pub for a piss up. Muslims ruining their fun with tea and biscuits.
I am sure some exist. A lot do just come across as football hooligans who just want to sing songs and jeer at the opposition. This is a good tactic though, offering them in for tea. I do feel people like UAF really don't help matters, it just becomes even more of a football hooligan atmosphere and people are in it just for the booze and a ruck. Cut out all that rubbish and every time the EDL turn up in balaclavas singing songs about Mohammed being a pedo, offer them in for tea and a chat.
They don't represent anyone but themselves, and in both cases that is a tiny, tiny proportion of the population. Both sides should be equally ignored.
Got "kettled" for like two minutes (caught on Whitehall, cops wouldn't let us out one end so walked back to Trafalgar Square, wouldn't let us out there either. Briefly. Victim of the police state, me).
EDL mob on Whitehall (maybe 100) were being properly kettled while they sang their silly songs and gave Nazi salutes. Don't know how I feel about that. Not in favour of kettling of lefties and school kids, feel like I should apply the same standard to everyone.
EDL chanting "whose streets? Our streets!" - clean them up then you twats - you left empty beer cans and half-eaten food all over the place, looked worse than central London after a Friday night.
throwing stones at a mosque in Walsall as I was driving past. I'd imagine the EDL would have approved
saw a bunch of EDL meeting up at a pub.
Later, the bus I was on was diverted for literally 5 MINUTES for some reason, then we went past Parliament where we saw some angry anti-EDL people getting mildly kettled outside Westminster station.
This is berksy, reporting from a safe distance away from the front line - back to you in the studio.
