I read two comments and had to close the page. I've had quote enough of ill-informed bigotry in the last 24 hours.

Watched the video last week. If these people really hate the way of life in the UK that much then they should leave. Come to Saudi, where ironically they would not have the freedom to protest in that manner.

The behaviour of those protesters is twisted and disrespectful, as well as hypocritical. I can't see anyone thinking otherwise, but violence from any 'side' isn't the answer.

I hate to use the 'if you don't like it leave' line, but I am puzzled as to why you would chose to live in a country whose values you profess to hate.

agree with you 100% on that, but peoples emotions are high and it will lead to demonstrations and all sorts of things. That video shows a big group of Muslim me and women with their children in pushchairs chanting badness about the British Government and Police Force.

But the fact is that they are allowed to spread that biggoted hatred. They should all be jailed, no parole, solitary 23.5 hours a day, given shit food to eat.

Get rid of them from our society, we don't want them.

"Them" is not limited to the people on the film, but to all.

In fact, open a massive secure community in some remote place - Scunthorpe springs to mind - and stick all the fascists and islamists (ie BNP/EDL and the immans and co) let's see what happens, latest reality tv - remember where you saw it first.
