Right on cue

As if on cue, protesters turned out in Luton to "greet" British troops returning from Iraq.
Twice in two years they have fought in Iraq, with two of their comrades paying the ultimate price when they died in a roadside bomb attack in Basra and 10 more killed in Afghanistan.

But a homecoming parade in honour of 200 soldiers back from the battlefields was marred yesterday(tues) by Muslim anti-war protesters.

They hurled abuse as members of the 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment marched proudly through the centre of Luton.

Waving placards with slogans saying: 'Anglian soldiers: Butchers of Basra,' and 'Anglian soldiers: cowards, killers, extremists,' and 'baby killers,' they were hemmed in by police as the parade passed.

It is worse that sick and sickening, it is despicable.
Where are the counter protesters ?

Where are the counter protesters? It appears there were many, thankfully.

Yes, I've seen the YouTube clip. It looks like the slow to stir English patriots are getting annoyed...Just as well too.

Perhaps the shame of being white and English is starting to be replaced by a bit of righteous anger...watch the cringing left wring their hands over the white racists. No mention of course of the Islamic bigots...
