Just to be clear, I’m not in favour of this kind of gross stupidity and lawlessness. The police should lock up whoever was throwing the fire-crackers.
It seems to me that following the recent Birmingham mass-brawl, the anti-Nazis have been getting a bit ahead of themselves. Salma Yaqoob has been going on YouTube arguing why the EDL march should be banned in Luton etc. But as I’ve said before, there are also gang elements within the crowd who fought the EDL in Birmingham, and unless something is said to control them, right-whingers will use them to smear the entire anti-fascist movement.
Either Salma or the local politicians of Luton need to tell these bored kids to shut the hell up and stay at home instead of causing trouble. Otherwise they’re no better than the trouble-makers from the English Defence League.
