The soccer hooligans and EDL lunatics are a very extreme minority. After the death of Lee Rigby, the far right had a surge of support from imbeciles
across the country incapable of holding a logical opinion about anything. The response we saw in the UK was a worrying one, because there were a lot
of idiots who barely think suddenly siding with a fascist movement because they don't understand what's happening. But thankfully, that's now
declining again and those idiots are going back to watching Britain's Got Talent and screaming over BS tabloid stories.
There is no revolution coming to the UK, because there are not enough capable and intelligent people willing to organize and protest. The BBC makes
sure that the people are kept in the dark about important issues - you'll notice that the spying of GCHQ and the NSA barely gets a mention on the BBC
at any time.
As for the idiot with the tattoo, I'm skeptical about the story. He says he has since had it removed, but he doesn't exactly look like the kind of man
who would be able to afford to pay the thousands of £'s it would cost to have a predominantly black tattoo removed.
That would cost a hell of a lot of money to get rid of, and the image of it seems to suggest it was drawn on with marker pen.
I too am a little confused about the legality of this. Having a tattoo is not a criminal offense, and art should not be silenced based on the
threatening nature of it or what someone might think of it. What is to stop someone from being arrested for having an upside down crucifix tattooed on
them? What about the EDL members with Swastika tattoos?
I really don't care what people tattoo themselves with, it's their actions that should be scrutinized. People can believe whatever they want to
believe, and people should feel free to decorate their bodies as they wish. Punishing people for something someone else is disgusted or offended by is
not the remit of the police or our government.
