English Defence League demo a washout

EDL Wandsworth prison protest

The English Defence League had high expectations of their demonstration outside Wandworth prison in support of their jailed leader.

“We want to make it a big event,” the EDL wrote last week, “we want the authorities to sit up and take note. We want them to know that we know that Tommy’s arrest and remand is motivated not by a desire to uphold the law but for political reasons.”

Alas, the troops failed to rally to the cause. Hope Not Hate and EDL News report that a mere 100 protestors turned out in the rain.
