    Today is the English Defence Leagues Bradford "demonstration". They've been planning this for months and on various forums and Facebook groups have been referring to it as "The Big One". There are obvious plans to turn Bradford into a war zone today. Hopefully with the WYP banning the march it has doused alot of that flame, but there's still a chance for massive unrest, chaos and violence. So please, if any tempers live or are travelling to Bradford today (in any capacity, protester/anti-protester, shopping, visiting friends) then please stay safe, stay alert and look after yourself.

    Are they related to the Butterfinger Defense League?

    I wish. They'd be quite useful then.

    edit : Live link to the "demonstration". Be forewarned though, 95% of previous EDL "demonstrations" have ended in rioting and violence. Not sure exactly what time it's supposed to begin.
