This weekend’s Veterans Against Terrorism/Football Lads Alliance march is by far the largest patriotic protest in modern British history. It was also very much better behaved and dignified than the shambles repeatedly put on by the EDL at its height a few years ago. So full marks to the organisers and to everyone who attended.
It was particularly good to see the horrified faces of the leftists who turned out to oppose the protest against Islamist terrorism. They were clearly horrified by the sheer scale of the parade as well as by the rare combination of ‘tough’ and ‘responsible’ on display.
It does beg the question as to who is really behind this new operation? Things like this do not just ‘happen’. Thousands of people do not just descend on London because someone has called a protest – not even on an emotive issue such as this.
Behind the scenes there has to be some serious organisational effort and capability. And, given the low profile of the event on public social media, there has to be a whole network of closed groups at work here.
The video can be seen here.
Some clearly are at the more serious end of the football scene, but it is obvious from the large number of military berets and cap badges, plus the discipline of the thousands of marchers, that regimental associations and old comrades’ networks are also involved.
This phenomenon is very new. Is it spontaneous? Have some people in military intelligence or with serious military connections finally given up on the political class and realised that they have a duty to act and to begin to build a real resistance force in Britain? Or is it yet another operation by the Washington/New York neocon elite to use legitimate concerns to mobilise and exploit the ‘white working class’ to do their dirty work?
Whichever it is, the turn-out and the good order of this massive event suggests that the plan is working. And, whichever it is, it’s truly great to see that – after sitting and grumbling for so long, people in Britain are finally standing up and coming out on the streets. That has to be good – and we think it’s just the start!
