The Tundra Tabloids is hearing from “boots on the ground” that 50 UAF socialists were arrested, with two “token” EDL members taken into custody. The EDL clearly outnumbered the commies, who took to their traditional role of thuggery because they can’t win an argument nor allow other opinions. KGS
Police are trying to contain thousands of demonstrators from the English Defence League (EDL) and Unite Against Fascism (UAF) at a protest in Bolton. More than 1,500 UAF and 2,000 EDL supporters are in Victoria Square and a number of people have been injured.At least 50 people have been arrested, including the UAF protest organiser on suspicion of conspiracy to commit violent disorder, police said. The EDL says it opposes “militant Islam” and Sharia law. The UAF accuse the EDL of being a far right party but it describes itself as a peaceful, non-political group.

To the pokey you go!
