They’re not loony lefties

Have your say

The letter from Mr J Oxby, is totally incorrect.

The demonstration Ed Miliband addressed the other week was nothing at all to do with the hooligans who created havoc in London. They were anarchist and other associated gangs of thugs who came to cause as much trouble as possible.

They are well know to the police and why they were allowed by them to do what they did I do not know, but they have no connection whatsoever with either the Labour Party or the trade union movement.

The meeting Ed Miliband addressed was the culmination of a peaceful protest march attended by several hundred thousand people from all walks of life, along with their children and most of these would have been mortified at being called left wing never mind loony left.

It’s sad the press choose to portray the two events as one.
