Following a Freedom of Information request to North Wales Police about the cost of policing the march I received the following response:
We can...provide information regarding the combined cost of the WDL and EDL march in Wrexham on the 21st November 2009.
The total figure to date is £217,854. This figure could change subject to further invoices being forwarded for payment.
All costs fall to North Wales Police.
So there we have it, the costs of allowing racists to enjoy their freedom to spread hate and intolerance. What else could North Wales Police have spent this money on?
