Could I just clarify. The BNP campaigned for around a decade to bring this abuse, and the refusal of the police to do something, into public awareness, but were dismissed as racists. They were not climbing on the bandwagon, quite the reverse. Ann Cryer MP brought it up in Parliament a few years ago but she also was told to shut up. The UAF were protesting against the presence of the BNP and EDL outside the Court and thus appeared to be defending those on trial.
