I'm surprised

Moving on from a nutjob, fringe, religious group unrepresentative of their faith, I come to another nutjob fringe religious group unrepresentative of their faith, as it appears that, entirely predictably, Islam4UK have abandoned their plans for a demonstration march through Wootton Bassett.

Well, colour me surprised.

They got their media exposure, which was their aim, along with fuelling the paranoia of the Islamophobes amongst us. According to the News of the World, Alan Johnson is about to proscribe the group.

Perhaps the media also ought to learn not to feed the trolls by running with every little bit of rubbish that groups like Islam4UK and Christian Voice decide to spout, legitimising them as faith groups rather than the tiny, unrepresentative preachers of hate and division that they are.
