Police doing Edl's bidding now

An independent photographer at the EDL march in Shotton yesterday thought as we did when the march was in Wrecsam, that the Police were not policing the march impartially. This is what Stillshooter from Northerm Indymedia had to say about the march:
In a separate incident, the Edl objected to a colleague photographer not having a visible Press-card, despite the fact said colleague had covered numerous, similar Edl protests in recent years, the police intervened, and she was told that, if she continued to take photographs, the protesters could become agitated and that would cause a "breach of the peace" for which SHE could be arrested ??? Police doing Edl's bidding now ?

Surely it was the presence of the EDL in Shotoon that was likely to cause a breach of the peace and not freelance photographers.

Why were the EDL allowed to march through Shotton by North Wales Police? In Wrecsam they were prevented from doing so.

This question has been asked many a time, North Wales Police are pretty inconsistent in their approach. They could get these marches banned but it's too much work to get an order from the Home Sec and that would still not prevent them assembling.
