Thank you for your courage

That was written on a "welcome home" placard yesterday in Luton. Most in the crowd came to show support for the British troops (the Poachers) returning from a tour in Iraq. But - as is usual in England these days, some muslim thugs tried to use the event to spread their bs. Take a look:

Sickening, but also shows that maybe, just maybe, my countrymen and women have had enough of the polite response to these morons.

The time HAS come to tell the government that it is no longer good enough to be "disappointed", as Gordon Brown says. The time HAS come to refuse to tolerate such hate bs. England belongs to the ENGLISH!

And on the Beeb? There was another parade of our troops in Watford:

Soldiers who were subjected to abuse by protesters after returning from duty in Iraq have marched in Hertfordshire.

The 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment faced protests from Muslim demonstrators in Luton on Tuesday.

People greeting the soldiers turned on the protest and an Army spokesman said the battalion was "deeply touched" by this support.

A day later, thousands of supporters turned out in Watford for the parade to mark the soldiers' return from Iraq.

The Battalion recruits from Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland.

Support 'overwhelming'

Private Edward West, 19, from Watford, said the protests had not affected him or his fellow soldiers.

He said: "When we marched past them we saw them but the police had it under control so we weren't worried. The support there overwhelmed them.

"We heard them for a few seconds but then all the supporters just began cheering us so it didn't affect us because they were such a small minority."

Prime Minister Gordon Brown condemned the protesters and said: "The whole country is proud of our brave servicemen and women who serve their country with great distinction and courage."

The protesters, who were hemmed in by police as the parade marched past, waved placards with slogans including: "Anglian Soldiers: Butchers of Basra" and "Anglian Soldiers: cowards, killers, extremists".

One also read: "British Government Terrorist Government".

Their protests were also condemned by Defence Secretary John Hutton and his Conservative shadow Dr Liam Fox.

Mr Hutton said: "I want to pay tribute to the 2nd Battalion, The Royal Anglian Regiment who have served their country with great bravery and professionalism.

"I can only condemn the tiny minority who used this opportunity to make, whatever their personal views, utterly ridiculous and insulting comments."

Dr Fox added: "This is offensive, appalling and disgraceful....(source)

Talk is cheap. NOW lets see some action.

Labour is getting scared. It has been courting the Muslim vote for years, letting them get away with all their bs. Now when the average Brit stands up to them, and shows his or her support for their troops, stands up to the Muslims, cries out for their nation to return to what made it great, they don't know what to do.

They are running scared that they will lose control of the Parliament. And I pray to G-d that they will!
