As my wife signed our Eid cards to friends, I was considering how the EDL - and others - might reflect on the close of Ramadan.
One difficulty with taking the 'Muslim take over of Britain' line is that, not unusually, Britain's Muslims can't actually agree when Eid actually is - some will hold celebrations today, others on Wednesday. One thing the EDL may try to run against has been the campaigns to mark the end of Ramadan in public parks - #Eidinthepark has been trending on Twitter - and after some delay Tower Hamlets Council has chosen Stepney Green Park for such prayers. There will be similar events in other cities.
No great opposition to this from me, although I have one slight concern. Ground, when given to religious actors, cannot normally be taken back. So fundamental to an individuals identity are such beliefs, that the greviances unleashed by supporting X one year then not supporting it the next are usually not worth the hassle in any society, especially a liberal democracy.
I their minds, those trending #eidinthepark have already decided it is to be a permanent event, and that it is to be bigger each year. Lets hope the local authorities know this as well.
