‘Anti-Islamist political party’ to be launched this year, says EDL leader

A supporter of the English Defence League gestures during a demonstration in LutonReuters has an article marking the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Cable Street which draws parallels with the threat from the far right today.

The article closes with a quote from EDL leader Stephen Lennon: “There will be an anti-Islamist political party forming this year. Britain’s primed for it.”

This confirms the Gates of Vienna report of discussions at the London “counterjihad” conference in September.
