Preparing for the EDL in Amsterdam

Matthew Collins - 29 10 10

We’ve been in Amsterdam all day preparing for the arrival of the EDL.

It’s easy to get too excited as there are lots of English lads here, so we keep reminding ourselves to stay focused and let the innocent and ordinary do their thing.

We did spot our first lot of EDL supporters shortly before 5pm Dutch time however. Surprisingly they were getting drunk and stoned and not availling themselves to the Anne Frank museum, as one would’ve thought they might…

The Dutch seem quite prepared for the EDL tomorrow and at the moment I don’t think it’s going to be the traditional warm welcome.
