    I suppose, he/she will think the same about US issues and that's why he/she will not post there.

    I fail to care about so many things that if I start posting about all, I'd better move to the US, where not much happens. :)

    They have a right to express themselves but they seem to be doing it purely to be provocative. This always happens when a group lacks the intellectual capability to debate their concerns in the proper manner. This is, of course, regardless of their xenophobic and racist platforms.

    Then why did you bother to post anything. Its only your own time you are wasting.

    The rise of the far right.. I thought for a while it was going to be a flash in the pan. But looks like it's here to stay.

    Some of the people who are manipulating those who support the EDL are from your side of the pond.

    At the risk of sounding out of the know on British ways...

    I was somewhat surprised by this. The UK government tolerates active soldiers participating in protests and demonstrations, let alone with a group that at the least promotes violence at these protests and probably engages in terrorist acts?

    If it turns out to be true, and those soldiers identified, there would be consequences. The BNP (British Nationalist Party) had it's excel spreadsheet released by an ex-administrator to the press and it contained teachers, policemen etc.. afaik the policemen were reprimanded for it..
