Tomorrow morning, the EDL have chosen to infest our city with their repulsive brand of politics. Our police force face a £500 000 bill to maintain public order and safety. The shops in the city centre will also lose trade.

 

When Sheffield Wednesday, or United play at home, part of the policing bill is passed on to the clubs. It it time that the same principle was applied to violent political groupings? Should we bill the EDL £500 000 for disrupting our city tomorrow? Should we hold them responsible for lower takings from city centre shops?

Yes only those who have money should be allowed to express their thoughts, ideas and opinions freely.

What thoughts, ideas and opinions do the EDL offer apart from chant anti Muslim slogans?

what exactly is the point of this EDL March?

All they are doing is forcing the police to use up money from their budget which they can ill afford to do and are costing legitimate businesses money.

Free speech is everyone, even those I personally find repugnant like the EDL. What gives you (or any council, the govt) the right to decide which thoughts and ideologies are unacceptable? which opinions can be voiced, and which ones are pointless and must be silenced?

Nobody is 'deciding' anything but everybody has the right to disagree with a viewpoint. Although you are working hard to respect the views that you find abhorrent you mustn't expect everybody else to be quite so accommodating. At the end of the day the right to hold a viewpoint means that viewpoint can be challenged by somebody else exercising their own right to hold a viewpoint.

Yes you / they can hold a counter demonstration if they wish. I'm defending EVERYBODYS right to free-speech which includes the EDL's. The right for them to say these things is freedom of speech and is one of the cornerstones of a free society.

 

Free speech must be protected at all costs. The point of free speech is that it’s for EVERYONE! Even the speeches which you, I or others consider to be racist, hateful, over the line and unbalanced.

 

If free speech is only for polite persons with mild temperament within government policed parameters who have money, then it isn’t free at all.

The anti EDL protest will be the cause of any violence, the police presence will be to protect the EDL from the violent fascists.

As happened in Birmingham where just 50 EDL boneheads were sentenced?

 

"English Defence League supporters who brought terror to the streets of Birmingham have been jailed for more than 75 years after violence flared at a protest.

 

"Fifty men have appeared before Birmingham Crown Court over the past five weeks to be sentenced for violent disorder after ugly scenes were witnessed by police and visitors on July 20 2013".
