The Government should ban the EDL
Responsible department: Home Office
- The EDL peddle hatred amongst the people of the UK however the Government has so far refused to ban them.
- After the tragic events in Oslo and Utoya, we the people recognise that far right groups who share in part, or in whole, in this dangerous and evil ideology should not be allowed to exist in good society.
- :Petitions and submissions have been made to the Home Secretary over the last two years and it is now time our Government acted. ref
