It takes a nation to protect the nation
The media present whatever the UAF say about themselves as if it came down on tablets of stone (like the idea that they are "anti-fascits" when they are, in fact, "neo-fascists").
With the EDL demo in Luton, there was a (supposedly) "local group" called "We Are Luton". This "local group" managed to get approx. 1000 supporters to demo in Luton. "We Are Luton" portrayed the EDL as "unwelcome visitors in Luton".
(We could say the same about islam being unwelcome visitors in the west; as Tommy says, "EDL is an effect, not a cause".)
The only website I can find for WAL is this one, and practically all their support comes from trades unions and muslim groups (funnily enough, just like UAF):
Yet from the UAF website it is clear that this national organisation was shipping in people from around the country to pose as "locals". This is to mask the fact that, as a national organisation, the UAF are incapable of rallying equivalent numbers to a national organisation like EDL.
Here is the page showing that UAF were organising coaches from at least 27 different towns and cities (including south Wales).
Assuming that the smallest coach they hired contained 10 people, then approx. 300 of the 1,000 "local" people were shipped-in by the UAF. Considering that the UAF was organising these coaches from 7th April, and that UAF has the backing of the TUC and LibLabCon, it seems quite likely that more than 1/3rd of the "locals" were shipped-in.
Amazing to think that the suburbs of Luton extend to Barrow (nearly Scotland) and into south Wales.
