The Calm Before the Storm in Luton

From Gates of Vienna:

EDL header
I just received a phone call from one of the EDL people who will be participating in tomorrow’s big demonstration in Luton. He tells me that the town is fairly humming already, and a lot of the people who plan to attend arrived earlier this evening and are staying in hotels.

There is already a massive police presence — police cars and patrols all over the town keeping an eye on things. My contact says that there are also carloads of culture enrichers driving around looking for anybody who resembles an EDL supporter, and then shouting abuse at them out the windows. He was with a member of the Dutch delegation who was singled out for particular harassment.

Representatives from Germany, the Netherlands, France, and Austria have arrived. The speakers’ roster has been established for tomorrow, and will include at least one foreign speaker, although most speeches will be given by EDL leaders, especial local representatives from Luton.

The main event begins tomorrow at 1pm GMT, which is 8am my time (EST). I’ll be live-blogging events as the information comes in.

Stay tuned — it looks like Luton is going to a big one.

    Midnight Australian Eastern Daylight Saving Time, which is a nuisance for me.

    I’ve just watched a couple of mulsim videos and they are keeping gearedup to cause trouble.

  2. Took me a while to think what you were talking about !!

    Oh dear !! I’ll be back after I check out my history. Trouble is I get carried away with links !!

    Can’t think too straight here today. The temperature is 41.3C whichis 106F

    It’s been a hell of a week over 30 everyday with high humidty

  3. I went to Youtube to leave a mildly mocking comment about the first video and my comment was not approved. Wonder why? .
    Could it be that someone can’t take criticism?

  4. Paula, don’t get a complex about it!!

    I did the same on both, they don’t always come up straight away any how.
    If it was something they don’t want to hear, it won’t see the light of day

    What country are you in? Not North America, as it is the middle of the night and only early morning in Britain
