Is this a dignified way to mourn the dead?

Have your say

I went to Barker’s Pool on Saturday and watched the EDL march to the war memorial.

It was alarming watching them marching en masse clapping when they laid the flowers.

I have never seen people clap when laying flowers at a memorial, then chant as they walk away.

Does anyone think this is a dignified way to mourn the dead?

I don’t think the EDL should come to Sheffield and make people feel intimidated.

It’s horrible that Drummer Lee Rigby went the way he did, but not fair for them to hate others.

The people who killed the soldier should be targeted not the rest of us.
