EDL anti-halal protest gets favourable coverage from ITV

EDL Skegness halal protest (2)

Yesterday the English Defence League held a protest against a halal abattoir in Skegness. It attracted about 100 people.

ITV News has broadcast a disgracefully uncritical report of the demonstration, in which an EDL spokesman is allowed to claim, unchallenged, that there is nothing racist about the EDL, that their sole concern is with animal welfare, and that “no-one here has a problem with anyone’s colour, or religion for that matter”.

This from an organisation that happily posts a link to a Youtube video opposing halal slaughter alongside a link to another video entitled “All Muslims when they die go to hell”.
