    The UK government has granted police the right to prevent far-right groups from marching through five London boroughs for 30 days, prompting concerns that a dangerous precedent has been set in terms of police power and freedom of expression.

    Scotland Yard says it applied for the ban over fears of violence and disorder planned by the English Defence League earlier this month.
    Citing far-right wing anti-Muslim groups, and the recent riots in the UK, police have put up a month-long ban on marching in several areas.

    This is an assault on free speech rights and a creep towards a police state.

    More like a suicidal sprint at full speed.

    It's to stop the English Defense League from speaking out against muslim violence. Particularly muslim violence against British girls and muslim girls that have adopted western dress and manners.
