It’s not often I reblog something unless its something worthwhile sharing…
I was born in Glasgow and grew up here. I love my country and understand how lucky and privileged we are to be British. Especially when I look at where my parents are from and the kind of life I could have had.
I went through a system of this country that looked after me and gave me a family once again when i lost my own as a kid.
The EDL is not the Britain I know. My Britain isn’t racist and in my city we stick up for each other and look out for each regardless of religion, creed or colour. I refuse to accept anything else of the country I’m born into, from it’s govt or it’s public.
So having said this I present to you some humour, you really can’t call it anything else 😉
As the EDL embarked on Leicester and cost the tax payers thousands of pounds, I began following the news of their progression on Twitter.
It was a comparatively small turn out for the EDL. Concerns were that it was snowing and they might catch a cold, so they decided that it was safer to stay at home than fight their wannabe Nazi cause.
Anyways, I found out from Twitter that a lot of people are confused as to what the EDL are and what they stand for. Are they a “football firm” for the BNP, or just an “I’m proud to have achieved my life-long ambition to shave my head community?”
I ended up researching and found a great spokesperson and representative for the EDL, who really summarized what they are about in a few words.
So here it is, for your educational pleasures.
