"for the first time" - isn't this the same group who held a similar event in North Weald a while back?

Anyone know why they've taken a sudden liking to Epping Forest?

This is to expand this ancient religion into the sticks.

The only 'understanding' many people require is why the 'Community Elders 'and Imams are not more robust in denouncing the terrorist and extremism promoted by many of their fellow Muslims, why they do not display and express abhorrence over the ancient and date attitudes towards homosexuals and woman and the negative treatment of the same. The veil which is a barrier to integration in modern society (playing no part in the Koran) should also be discouraged to build more trust and integration.

Your party seemed very cosy with the Tories on County so why complain?
