“Hurrah for the EDL!”

From Luton Today:

THE leader of the English Defence League says the organisation’s members will risk prosecution in a bid to protect next week’s royal wedding from Islamic extremists.

EDL leader Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, who goes by the pseudonym Tommy Robinson, said ‘50 to 100’ members would be at each train station near Westminster Abbey to prevent extremist Muslims from reaching the ceremony.

Muslims Against Crusades announced this week that it planned to demonstrate outside the April 29 ceremony, but its bid was blocked yesterday by the Metropolitan Police.

Mr Yaxley-Lennon, who runs a tanning salon in Hastings Street, Luton, said EDL members planned to physically stop Muslim extremists getting to Westminster Abbey.

“The police will let them have their protest but we’ll be at each train station to make sure they don’t come,” he said.

“It’s going to be a public order offence – there will be mass disorder. We will form a ring of steel around that wedding.

“It will be ordinary members of the public going in to prevent a crime because the police won’t stop it. “We will be issued with Section 14 orders because we would cause a breach of the peace.”

“Muslims Against Crusades will be carrying black flags and will be in uniform so we will know who they are,” he said. “As soon as they come out of any station there’s going to be chaos.”

I see!

How very public spirited of the fellow. To give up his time, to put himself at personal risk of arrest. And why?

To defend the Heir to the Throne, that’s why!

Mr Yaxley-Lennon said he would not be in London himself on April 29 as he will be away on holiday.

Oh well.
