It shows an elderly veteran of World War 2 who had joined the protest, and UAF stewards can be heard urging protestors to stay calm in the face of apparent police efforts to provoke a riot.
The Bolton News had a reporter in Victoria Square who described on Twitter how EDL members had broken away from the square to cause violence: â€œNumber of demonstrators intent on causing disorder have broken away from protest site. Large numbers of officers deployed to address.â€ The journalist saw â€œmissiles flyingâ€ as the EDL tried to get out of its enclosure.
The BBC also lets the English Defence League people describe themselves as “a peaceful, non-political group” — which is of course pure rubbish. But this isn’t challenged at all. In the interests of “balance”, UAF spokespeople were not quoted.
