This blog once bore the name 'EDL Extra'. I supported the EDL until 2012. As the reader will see, the last post which supports the EDL dates back to 2012. This blog, nonetheless, retains the former web address.

A Note on the Trouble at the Blackburn Demo

I've had a few messages from people saying that the trouble wasn't caused by either North West Alliance or Combat 18. That's fair enough. But none of these people have said who was responsible. In any case, I made it clear in the posts that I wasn't absolutely sure.

One responder asked me if I was actually there. I was - right in the middle of it. I asked some of the hecklers what their point was and they got aggressive with me. One mentioned that Guramit Singh had been 'grassing EDL up'. He didn't go into details. The other guys just looked like they wanted a scrap. Full stop.

So I have said on the posts that I didn't know who the culprits were. However, this is what many EDL said to me on the day and what I've read after. If anyone does know who the Hard Men were, let me know and I will add it to the relevant posts.
