EDL: making plans for more violence

Few people will ever forget the scenes in Amsterdam back in October 2010. The mighty EDL were chased out of town and humiliated by Dutch antifascists and a gang drawn from supporters of the Ajax football club.

Tommy and his gang were in town to throw their weight around at an international rally where Robinson was billed to be the main speaker.

The decision by Tommy Robinson and co to hide behind a gang of thugs linked to Ajax’s hated rivals Feyenoord was the catalyst for the Ajax fans to get involved.

Despite promises by some 200 English supporters of the EDL to attend, only sixty people from across Europe finally made it to the disastrous rally. A small group of about a dozen EDL got too drunk the night before to get out of bed the next morning. This left Tommy with only a minibus load of his nearest and dearest.

Now it seems the EDL are planning revenge. Ajax of Amsterdam are due in Manchester on the 23rd of this month for the return leg of their Europa Cup tie against Manchester United.

The EDL are now asking their supporters to go to Manchester and “extened the same courtesy” to Ajax fans.

No doubt this would mean the drunken idiots attacking as many young children as they can.
