Just before going on holiday (yes,again), I was going to knock off a quick blog post explaining that while I think the EDL are a collection of vile and loathsome idiots, I don't agree with banning political marches.
Then I discovered that Martin Shapland had written everything I was going to say and more over at Total Politics.
So go and read his post instead. It's very good.
Right. Where's the suncream...
