Unfortunately, in the run up to the planned event, it had also become apparent that certain right-wing/anti-Islamic organisations had become intent on preventing the march from going ahead, using threats of physical violence, including bomb and death threats to any member of the Muslim community who happened to attend the march.

I don't think the EDL will counter much resistance in Leeds.
Birmingham, Manchester, London - Multicultural cities
Leeds - predominantly white city apart from Chapeltown
And we all know Leeds United fans love the odd bit of racism.

These people who for a while now, have preached openly of how the UK will bow to Islam whether they like it or not, whether they have to use persuasion or force to bring it about, just turn around and say "We quit. We are again happy to live under the current law"
Am i reading to much into it? I just think its insanely strange.
