EDL Causes More Trouble.

with 2 comments

Anti-Muslim bigots, skinheads, the odd neo-Nazi and assorted football hooligans in the form of the EDL caused more trouble, this time in Harrow, the Guardian reports:

“Riot police were struggling to contain protests by anti-fascist demonstrators and rightwing organisations outside a mosque in north-west London tonight.

Officers were hit by bricks and bottles as they tried to keep about 1,000 rival demonstrators apart outside the partially completed mosque near the tube station in Harrow.

Seven people had been arrested and weapons, including bottles of bleach, a hammer and a chisel, were seized, a Metropolitan police spokeswoman said.”

Update 1: Watch the idiotic organizer, Stephen Gash, when he’s asked if organising a demo outside a mosque, after Ramadan on September 11th, is inflammatory, bottom of the page at BBC News.

Update 2:
Gash it seems was connected to the English Democrats years back. The Torygraph have granted him a blog. Not sure if Gash is just naive, stupid or on the way to Far Right membership, could be a combination of all of them?
