"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Surely Not?

"The destination of this very special event is the small market town of Wootton Bassett, located 6 miles Southwest of Swindon, in northern Wiltshire; Wootton Bassett, is currently famous for its public mourning processions held in memory of British soldiers killed whilst on military service in Afghanistan; coffins containing the ... bodies of these soldiers are usually draped in union jack flags and driven through the town centre from RAF Lyneham, as a tribute to their ‘sacrifice'.

The proposed march by members of ... is however of a very different venture, held not in memory of the occupying and merciless British military, but rather the real war dead..."
This hare-brained proposal has as much merit as turning Buckingham Palace into a mosque and I wait to hear what the government will do to contain the extremist tendencies of Al-Muhajiroun and Islam4UK.  A march would be an act of deliberate provocation against the people of Wootton Bassett and encourage confrontation and reprisal.  The dignity of Wootton Bassett should be respected; if these people want to march, let it be elsewhere.

If it's just an attention-seeking PR exercise in order to make themselves seem relevant I think they'll fall flat on their faces.  Many of their proposed seminars are cancelled because of lack of support - this march will probably go the same way.


  1. Probably an idea born in Downing Street.

  2. GV, Oldrightie, yep its the same clowns pulling the strings. OUR? government will not raise a finger. Wherever ordinary people get together and express anything worthy these worthies will arrange "trouble".

    Where do you think all the money trails lead, Islamic muppets, National Front, Panda squeezers and butt welders all end up being financed by tax free intergenerational foundations. They NEVER have anything to do with or to offer ordninary people.

    From The Sun King to Imperial Russia to Iran, the same trouble making loons.

  3. Oi

    I haven't had a decent wee squeeze this year.

  4. This is certainly something which the police must halt. I notice an ex soldier commented on their site. A balanced view I thought.

  5. I reckon EDL will have a field day.

  6. What will the English do about it.


    England ,,Just another Kosova

    ???English protest against Muslim Fanatics ? Dont make me laugh,
    They're petrified of smoking in a pub

    Get back to your X Factor and
    East Enders.


  7. 13th - If this does go ahead then I hope the EDL or whoever, have the good sense to stay away and let them get on with it - let them hang themselves and have it shown on tv in front of the whole country.

    OR/Incoming - yes, it's a false hope to think the govt might do something about them after all this time - except throw more appeasement money at minority groups.

    Subrosa - if the comment really was written by an ex-soldier then he should know that balance and reason don't work with groups like this one.

    Bugger - you give a whole new meaning to panda-squeezing; I hope your Hogmanay was a good one.

    Anonymous, thanks for your input. Sadly you're not the only one who thinks like that - the govt thinks it has it sussed as well.

  8. GV, as you say, the best response would be no response, let them condemn themselves by their own provocative and unseemly actions and see what the BBC makes of that.
