Hey there GoV.

Don’t know if you saw this latest disgusting provocation of Muslims screaming abuse at a British Army homecoming parade in Barking?

The EDL did a good job countering it; its just a shame the police couldn’t shame the same bravery when the Muslims chased then down the Mall last year.
