The town of Wootton Bassett is associated with honouring soldiers killed in Afghanistan, every time a fallen soldier returns home the town comes out in force to honor our loss. Very patriotic and no matter how you feel about the Afghanistan war what happens in Wootton Bassett is a very moving event.
Makes me proud to be British.
Watching Sky News and and a news report about the Islam4UK Wootton Bassett March and a new Facebook group was mentioned: “NO TO THE PLANNED ISLAM4UK MARCH THROUGH WOOTTON BASSETT” (over 250,000 members and growing FAST as I write this). http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/group.php?v=wall&ref=search&gid=228021139869
The lady who created the anti Islam4UK Wootton Bassett March FaceBook group was being interviewed and wanted Gordon Brown to Ban the Islam4UK Wootton Bassett March.
Gordon Brown said earlier regarding Islam4UK’s planned march through Wootton Bassett:
“I am personally appalled by the prospect of a march in Wootton Bassett,” he added.
“I believe that we as a nation should honour those brave servicemen and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
“Wootton Bassett has a special significance for us all at this time, as it has been the scene of the repatriation of many members of our armed forces who have tragically fallen.
“Any attempt to use this location to cause further distress and suffering to those who have lost loved ones would be abhorrent and offensive.”
I’m not sure if the government can legally ban a march like this? In my opinion if they can ban the Islam4UK planned march through Wootton Bassett, they should as it’s the wrong place to hold such a protest march!
