EDL Man Interviewed for Press TV


Who said that British youth aren't eloquent, intelligent, and politically aware. They're what makes us Brits proud. And as for that Muslamic law.....



N.B. In case you haven't heard of the EDL, they are the 'English Defence League'; a rather nasty extreme right-wing racist group. Above is a typical member.

    1. Looking at it again; I wonder if he was pissed?

  3. This level of considered rational thinking makes me really worry that something might be missing from the English education system!

    1. Not much to work with, in this case.

  4. We do have eloquent, intelligent and politically aware young people here of course...and I find myself feeling sorry for this individual because as I watched him I suddenly imagined him as a toddler and wondered what sort of sad upbringing he must have had.

    1. Obviously mixed with the wrong sort of people. 'Easily led' comes to mind.

    1. I thought he put his point very well.

  6. Ah the flower of British youth! My daughter and I missed this interview. Thanks for sharing Cro. Didn't know whether to laugh or cry, so we laughed !!

  7. Please everyone...
    please remember that there are a lot of young, and very disillusioned young, people like this lad...
    they are willing to turn out for a demonstration like this...
    and are more likely to go and vote...
    whilst the silent majority sit on their hands fuming....
    or, more likely, in the pub...
    whinging!
    That is what allows organizations like the FN in France to get elected....
    and extreme right and left groups everywhere feed on people like him.

    I do not actually think he was pissed...
    he probably has never been able to express himself clearly....
    therefore, he has been passed over many times in the hunt for worthwhile employment...
    he has probably had that feeling of exclusion strengthened by teachers...
    and, possibly, even his parent(s) if their job went down the pan because a firm moved the work abroad...
    find him and his friends a job...
    pay a decent wage for hard work...
    and a lot of the trouble will go away...
    not all of it, but a lot of it....

    I have worked with lads like this...
    give them a focus and a reasonable reward and you get a very good return!!
    Ignoring them and taking the P out of them isn't helping society one jot!!

    1. If this young man had been interviewed in the street about some everyday matter, I wouldn't have taken the slightest bit of notice. But the fact that he was at some wretched EDL march worried me. I'm sure he'd been coerced into joining-in, by a bunch of friends that he could well do without.

    2. Well said Cro...
      But I think friends should perhaps read "friends"....
      I doubt that they would stand by him when the chips were down!
      T'poor sod is mere cannon fodder!

    3. That's exactly how I viewed it, with the 'friends' being in the background.

  8. It was hard for me to understand his words, but then again, it didn't seem like he did either. Every place has its idiots.

    1. I think he was pissed. It sounds more like 'slurring' than dim.

  9. It's disillusioned people, often the young and often those less able mentally, who are more easily led into extremism whether it be of the left or the right or of fundamental Christianity or Islam. Of course there have to be leaders and they are often far from underprivileged or uneducated. It has always been thus and presumably always will be.

    I have to say that I thought LaPré DelaForge made a lot of sense.

  10. While I appreciate that some people hold such views because of difficult lives (though what the connection is with racism I struggle to see) I know many people who have no such "excuse". My brother-in-law (and his family) who have had a good upbringing and are very comfortably off would agree with him. We know several people who have had privileged lives and want for nothing who would agree with him. They may be more articulate but the mantra is the same.

  11. Two big worries for me here;
    1, I could not understand a single word he said.
    2, It would seem that I should be concerned about what he is saying.

  12. I think he was pissed. However, I also think that he was saying something that it is a pity our politicians will not stand up and say, that we do not want a legal system based on Islam. And we do not want the rape of 12 year olds in the name of Islam.

    1. I'm sure these gangs don't 'rape in the name of Islam'. They rape because they see young female infidels as easy targets.

  13. Reading this post and then reading the comments Cro, makes me so pleased that I continue to blog most days - all views make for a good, balanced discussion which then help with forming one's own opinion.

    1. That's why I posted it Weave. OK, it's provocative, but it makes for an interesting forum.

  14. Yep the young man appears pissed.
    Oh flip my predudice came in labelling him un educated ,
    Not working, taking benefits.
    What is normal to one person is not to the next.
    I knew I would go to uni , be supported, be nurtured. This young lad probably got none of that. Sad!.

    1. We'll never know. Maybe he was a star student at the LSE.

  15. Poor wee soul...I'm guessing the educational system in Britain is failing????

    1. It certainly fails some, but that's another whole subject.
