Watford resident complains after not being told about Islamic procession
Jeffrey Peach, from North Watford, said he had no objection to the march but added: “The first I learnt of the march was when I saw a plethora of police cars and riot squad vans parked in my road.

Mr Peach added: “Quite frankly I am appalled at the lack of concern shown to residents. Wouldn’t it have been nice and reassuring for residents to have been warned by the police?
Half the country would vote for a ‘far-Right’ party – whatever that means
If 48 per cent would support a “far-Right” party, could it not be that the views expressed by such “extremists” are not extreme after all? Could it even be that those in the pro-diversity “mainstream” are actually the extremists? Not necessarily, of course, but I hope some people consider the possibility.
