In normal, everyday life, drunkenness in a public place such as Bradford City Centre is a crime, punishable by fines and exclusion banning orders, however for the last six years, the nazi thugs of the EDL have been readily provided with large amounts of alcohol, aided and abetted by police forces and local authorities who see nothing wrong with turning obnoxious fascist cretins into ultra-violent, uncontrollable drunken fascist cretins. The infamous violence at the Birmingham EDL march some years back was a direct result of pubs being persuaded to serve the EDL pre-march. Almost every march sees alcohol-related scuffles, very often between their own footsoldiers, and yet, after years of the same old trouble, the West Yorkshire Police are gearing up to provide the ultimate inhumane right of the EDL is once again catered-for, and a public house knowingly serves a gang of violent racist alcoholics, many of whom are subject to local pubwatch restrictions throughout the United Kingdom, but will be free to get as drunk as they wish, in Bradford City Centre.
If the troublemakers of the far right get blind drunk and kick-off as they usually do, putting incredible strain on the emergency services including the NHS, maybe continuing their violence at the hospital, this would be completely avoidable if the EDL were only permitted to march sober. Drunken fascists are much more likely to lose all pretence of self-control, and violently assault passers-by, as they did during their last visit, outside Bradford's Leisure Exchange, when they are encouraged to spend several hours drinking pre-march. Hypocritically, homeless beggars with the slightest hint of booze on their breath walking the same streets as the EDL, will continue to be harangued by the boys in blue, without any such leniency.
Plying violent neo-nazi hooligans with one too many Stellas will once again ensure serious trouble will result. As such, what is the endgame for the councils and the police? Who gains from allowing the EDL to get rat-arsed before a march??? The EDL themselves must be stark raving bonkers if they believe always being filmed inebriated helps their cause one iota. Likewise, local authorities such as Bradford, which collaborate in designating pubs to the EDL, rapidly lose credibility with the electorate come election time. As for the pubs which serve the EDL, they are boycotted, lose customers and go bust, the Queen changing hands twice since the EDL's last visit in 2013. More longer-term, towns and cities where drunken thugs are allowed to go on the piss, then on the rampage, lose tourists. And yet, the EDL are still plied with drink at each and every fascist march routinely like clockwork.
The only beneficiaries of Muslamic Ray Guns morons going absolute ape shit, are the police bosses, self-justifying grandiose budgets in controlling EDL demos, ensuring all future budgets exceed a reasonable amount, regardless of turnout. And guess what..... whenever the EDL over-indulge, a pricey half a million pound mobilisation automatically becomes an absolute necessity.
They might as well go the full hog, to ensure the monkeys dance to the right tune, once the barrel organ of fascist incursion is cranked into action. In addition to allowing EDLers to get pissed, it would make overwhelming commercial sense for the cops to raid cocaine confiscation lockers to slip some Columbian fighting powder to the footsoldiers to ensure things go as per script.
