Waiting for the barbarians
The last time there was an English Defence League march in Leicester, many of their supporters stopped off in Market Harborough on the way. I was out searching for a lost Medieval village that day (I have an image to keep up), but I am told that they took over the town centre with their chanting for a while.
This morning all was quiet. There were a lot of police around and the Wethersoon's pub where the EDL congregated had not opened.
I saw only about a dozen EDL types in the town. They were clustered around another pub, which had refused to serve them.
