  • A large number of police are attending the protest.

We all know that these mosques are for harbouring weapons for when they finally try and take over....
My kids go Mosque and come back with colouring books. I'm nearly 40 been going mosque since I was 5 years old. NEVER been taught anything violent? 20k Muslims live in Bolton, 99% attended and still attend mosque have you been attacked by any one of them? Wake up man don't let bnp brain wash you!!!
20k more like 200k. I am proud of my country, I am not proud of what it is becoming. I do not want my daughter growing up in this town it disgusts me.
If you don't like Bolton feel free to leave - go now what's stopping you.....
Grow up man !
Why should I leave? Muslims need to integrate in to our society more, stop the drug-dealing gangs and stop speaking in foreign languages in our gyms, it is very rude and ignorant.
I take it that when you are abroad with family or friends you always make sure you chat with each other in the local language...

I am a Boltonian, I'm 60yrs my mum's 79yrs old and we were there as well as many other elderly women and men. We are just ordinary Bolton people who joined this protest to demonstrate our opinions which are; there are already far too many mosques in Bolton and a Super Mosque is most definitely not needed, especially on Blackburn Road.
I am absolutely disgusted by the biased and down right incorrect reporting of the Bolton News about today's events. There were more protesters than counter protesters, we outnumbered them by far. The only fireworks that were set off was by the Muslims and were thrown into our section of the protesters. They were abusive, violent, and taunting us all. The Muslim counter protesters also burned an English flag. Although some protesters rose to the taunting, the majority of Boltonians that were there; men, women, old and young alike were peace.
As we were on the coach waiting to go, one side of the coach was facing the Muslim counter protesters and they became very abusive and lewd, they started sticking their tongues out at us and licking their lips, playing with their nipples and rubbing their crotch's and one man actually exposed himself to us.
This is the truth and what really happened.

Just because we don't approve of this building being built how on earth are we racist?? This racist card really p1sses me off because as soon as we appose anything that Muslims do it suddenly becomes racist.
It was only yesterday police pulled a car up for going through a red light and they pulled over to the petrol station I was at and the first thing the Asian youth said was "you've only pulled me over cos I'm Asian!!"
I couldn't help myself by butting in and saying you going through a red light and getting in trouble for it has absolutely nothing to do with what colour/religion you are, you broke the law...it's as simple as that!! Then to my shock, 3 other Asian youths get out of the car and surrounded me, I didn't back down to any of them and the policeman told me to go away, I'm sorry but this is the mentality of this lot and obviously the law doesn't count for them??
It's pathetic and it's time our authorities started getting strict with them and make them obey OUR laws and rules otherwise go and live somewhere else!!
The arrogance of the Asian youth of today is awful and and it's no wonder more and more English people are starting to turn against thing like this. They literally think they are untouchable......bec

ause their Asian/Muslim!!
What a made up bull#### story! Haha we have some right novelists on here.......

Police cost for todays racist demo is at £1.5million pounds plus loss of trade to local businesses!
Thats £1.5million pound less the council has to spend on healthcare, repairing roads, and on education well done brin morgan and the nwi edl bnp looney party or whoever he represents these days.
Well.........make sure you have plenty more money in that pot. Because according to WhatsApp around 334 youth are ready to also do a protest same principles, paid coach, heavy police and in a residential area in Septemebr. Bolton Council messed up by allowing this to happen in a residential area. This is going to come back and haunt you even tho you are not the real cliff morriss.
Prada, 2 questons for you
1 Do you have a life/job, if not you need one. There is more to life than ranting ALL DAY, every day on here.
2 Will it be exactly 334 people, or is that just according to whatsapp?
Do you have a life? Doesn't look like it as your too busy reading people's comments. The numbers increased to 1244 since then.
Yep, that's what happens in a FREE COUNTRY. You can read and comment on peoples post,
Keep us all informed abut this glorious meeting your boys are having. Lets hope its not on a working day, you wont be able to turn up will you?

So the protestors bought granny along for a free show and a cup of tea, a man exposed himself to granny but despite there being a pretty large police presence including a couple of film units and headcams only Britchick2014 saw it leaving granny very disappointed?

No one takes any notice of the EDL news, it's also run by a fantasist.
Don't know. I've seen pretty compelling evidence to suggest you may be a little bit more racist than you wish to let on Ian.
I ll let people like Nat Biney Chair of Bolton African Association, Rosemary Argente Patron of Bolton African Association, Mr Razzaq - godfather to my child, Jimmy James Trindadian now resident of St Lucia and Best Man at my wedding, and my Jewish friends and family be the judge of if they think Im racist or not :)

Whatever happened to freedom of speech? The only abusive chanting appears to be coming from the so-called anti-fascists. Strange, given the reporter's very clear bias, that there is no reporting of abuse from the infidels so far.

Why should somebody be labelled "scum" just because they object to a proposed property development?

Elaine - perhaps you can ask the anti-fascist brigade for their views on the Jewish race?

I'd class myself as an anti facist. I don't have any view on the 'Jewish race'. Likes all races, there are good and bad in equal measure. I would say however, that I disapprove of Israeli foreign policy toward Palestine.

I used to be like you, until I picked up a load of books and read the history of the region and came to the conclusion that the liberal,left and Islamic objection to the state of Israel is the biggest con trick going:

Did you know that Britain until 1947 was actually stopping and preventing European Jews from moving to Israel. They would be shipped across to Cyprus and sent back. For doing so the Europeans called the British..racist.

In 1948 when Israel was formed by the UN (well a day early actually) 5 Arab armies invaded in which to push the jew into the Sea. Egypt,Jordan,Lebanon
,Iraq and Syria sent their armies in. Israel had no army.

In 1967, when Israel struck first, what people don't seem to accept, is that in Egypt,Syria and the West bank, entire armies from other nations waiting to go in (Kuwait/Saudi Arabia. Iraq,Libya,Morocco,A
lgeria and Pakistan.) Israel could not allow them to hit first.

Did you know that while the Media talks about the Israeli bombing of the Gaza power station, it only provides 10% of the power for Gaza. Israel provides 60% yes, 60% of the power to Gaza via 10 powerlines.. Egypt provides 10%. But here's the rub..Israel hasn't been paid for 10 Years

Lastly I have lived in the region and visited Both Israel and the neighbours. Only in Israel was I treated as a human being, in the others I was accused of being a Jew. (As was my sister) which is funny as both of us were born into Islamic families and have Islamic names.
