Could this be an own goal?
The Home Secretary has banned an EDL march in Telford at the request of the local council and police. Static assembly will still be allowed, though clearly the police rather wish it were not. Regardless of what I think of the EDL (and that is not for a family-friendly blog), is this a wise move? Is there any evidence that the EDL causes trouble? Or will other people cause trouble for them? If local people do not want them, they will, presumably make it clear one way or another. As things stand, Theresa May's decision is likely to raise the EDL membership by quite a large number. Would the word numpty describe the woman adequately?
