Creeping Stupidity (the day the racists came to town)

The day started bright and early yesterday (by a Sunday's standards) when we arrived in Brighton city centre at half eleven in order to counter-demonstrate against the 'March for England' (who are basically the EDL in a bad wig).

Last year they congregated at 11am in The...
