Thought it might be useful to have a thread to discuss these groups, seems like they may be becoming more and more relevant, which also likely means a lot more dangerous.|
The reason I made this thread in particular is because the Scottish Defence League (an offshoot of the EDL) is marching in Glasgow tomorrow. Of course there will be a counter protest being held, but if any violence breaks out, I'm guessing the SDL will be in a better situation, being made up of mostly hooligan thugs.
Anyway, what I'm most curious about is why people think these groups have had a resurgence recently, what's likely to become of them in the future, and how you believe we should deal with them. For example, should we just outright ban them, or would that be infringing on civil liberties?
