You have to laugh at the two new reports that have just been issued by 'think tanks' on how to tackle the EDL.

The first recommends 'doorstep "hearts and minds" campaigns that tackle anti-Muslim sentiments at local level'. Just imagine it: a small team of do-gooders knocks on your door and 'fortifies' your flagging sense of moral probity with such pearls of wisdom as: Did you know Islam is a religion of peace? That Breivik was in contact with the EDL? That Jihad is just an internal spiritual quest? That Aisha was really 18? Oh, and did I mention Breivik was in contact with the EDL?

The second report argues that:
the government's Prevent strategy should no longer be seen as offering alternatives to those who might be tempted into terrorism by al-Qaida and like-minded groups, but that the strategy should also tackle rightwing extremism.

In other words, a programme originally put in place to confront jihadist radicalism should now be turned around 180 degrees to target those who oppose jihadist radicalism. Ha!Ha!

The plebs should also be told that they just have to put up with immigration, like it or not:
Politicians also needed to be more honest. "Existing responses … typically focus on plans to reduce the number of immigrants, or curtail overall levels of immigration. Yet at the same time, international treaties have greatly reduced the capacity of governments to deliver demonstrable outcomes in this policy area."

And we need to explain to the common folk how third-world cultures are so cool and vibrant:
Mainstream parties needed to challenge more forcefully claims of national cultures being under attack; that meant going beyond the economic case for immigration and arguing for cultural diversity.
