I attended the Gays Against Sharia, Unite Against Hate march in Manchester on June 11th. As the crowds assembled, some passers-by watched from a pedestrian bridge overhead, and I strolled among them to listen. The usual shouts of ‘Nazi scum’, and ‘racist scum’ rang out, which those who protest against Islam have come to expect, elaborated with helpful hints such as ‘Your daughter’s going to marry a black man’. Then a young couple shook their heads at each other and said, ‘Look at them. Just exactly what you’d expect the EDL to look like. White trash.’
And there, in a nutshell, you have it.
