Because I believe in the concept of Freedom of Speech, however distasteful I find the raison d'être of Islam4UK, it should go ahead. The town Wootton Bassett where the bodies of fallen servicemen and women pass through has obviously been chosen for maximum inflammatory effect and is simply anathema to any person with a sense of honour.
If the police allow the protest to go ahead, I would imagine some trouble would inevitably occur and the MSM will be sensationalising what it can to sell as many papers as possible.
However, it prompted me to think about another scenario: what would the reaction of the country and the state be during the 1940’s if people marched in one of our cities protesting in support of National Socialism, the Occult replacing Christianity or telling the British government to get out of German occupied countries?
Would they accept large numbers of German countrymen into their homelands and allow them to march around and jeer pro-National Socialist views at our soldiers, or would they be arrested and in the case of British nationals, be tried for treason?
We are effectively at war with Iraq and Afghanistan. Are there sufficient differences today compared with the 1940s for us to turn a blind eye? The caveat "we are at war against terrorism only" absolve the above actions?
