Maidstone anti-mosque protest turns into a right-wing no show
A protest against the expansion of Maidstone mosque appeared to turn into a damp, drizzly squib this morning when the ultra-right wing South East Alliance failed to show up.
Anti-facists, pro-refugee bodies and trades unionists are outside the Islamic centre.
South East Alliance were expected to be at the scene by 11am but are not expected before 1pm.
The reason for their no-show is thought to be due to a lack of numbers.
Just two policemen are in attendance - outnumbered by the Press by four to one.
