Ian O'Doherty: When in a hole . . .

I've always been amazed at how vitriolic people are towards the BNP while at the same time excusing extremist Muslim groups like Al-Muhajiroun on the grounds that they are merely expressing their religious beliefs.
Indeed, the absolute cowardice of the British political elite when it comes to immigration and integration, and the fact that the white, indigenous working class in Britain is the one demographic that is still acceptable to vilify has created an absolutely poisonous atmosphere in Britain.
The largely middle-class liberal media in Britain has also ensured that there is an increased sense of alienation -- after all, why do you think groups like the English Defence League exist in the first place? If the cops actually busted Muslim extremists who gather and heckle the coffins of returning British soldiers then there would be no need for them in the first place.
