Notably, the whole piece is skewed towards one statement made by a policeman; where Detective Chief Superintendent Matt Sawers of the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit apparently links EDL actions with a subsequent rise in local jihadist activity. But that apparent cause and effect could not occur if the ground was not fertile in the first place, could it?
Also, this appears to be the policeman making an excuse for the growth of jihadism. One might easily counter that by stating that the EDL is in itself inspired by jihadi activity amongst Muslims. So, the piece might have been headed 'Islamist activity feeds EDL extermism'.
The fact that it was not shows who the BBC thinks should be 'put in their place'.
