This week it was reported in the Dover Express that the English Democratic League (EDL) is recruiting in Dover. They are seeking to make hay out of our status as a border town. Yet people in Dover tell me that while they want border security and real action to tackle immigration, they want these discussions to be held maturely and thoughfully.
They tell me they loathe islamic hate preachers and the EDL in equal measure. Why? It has to be remembered that while Dover is our nation's front line, it is also the guardian of the White Cliffs, whose spirit of justice and our way of life is strongly felt in the community.
My view is that hate preachers and the EDL is different sides of the same coin - messengers of hate we could well do without. These racists should go home.
