Dear Andy - An Open Letter to Anjem Choudary

A great response by Dan Bull to the story about Anjem Choudary, the Islamist solicitor who has sparked outrage and achieved much sought-after publicity by proposing an anti-war march through Wootton Bassett, which I know made it onto the news on the other side of the world. My personal view is that the town is not sacred territory simply because of its proximity to RAF Lyneham, but that like so much that Choudary does, there was never really an intention to march there anyway. He knows he simply doesn't have the numbers and the media storm was the intended outcome.

Unfortunately, the moonbats at Islam4UK have also had more success than safe, respectable marches from Hyde Park to Trafalgar Square in revealing the public hypocrisy in 'supporting the troops' and not thinking too hard about the consequences of their presence in Afghanistan and Iraq on the civilian populations of both countries. What does that say about the mainstream anti-war movement nine years on?
