So it seems strange that people feel the need to travel to other places in order to do this thing that everyone is freely entitled to do. Everyone is free to wear hats. For someone they don't feel the need to travel to places to march wearing hats. "2) Brighton is a tourist destination. It was built as such, and it depends on tourism." Yes. And stangely having Marchers agressively shouting walking through the streets negatively impacts the tourist experience. Please don't even pretend that the MfE is in any way comparable with the average tourist visiting Brighton. "3) Loving one's country isn't an offence, and it certainly isn't racist in any way." No it isn't. Racist chanting - that's racist. Racist gestures - they're racist. Racist comments - they're racist. Racist literature - that's racist. Racist slogans on clothing or banners - they're racist. If you don't have/do any of the racist things then you aren't exhibiting racism, See how easy it is to not be a racist? "4) Preventing freedom of expression is an offence in the UK." Again you are pointing out things that are not in dispute. However as with all countries this is not an unlimited right - incitement towards illegal activity certainly can be an offence. "5) Many Brighton residents support the rights of patriots to display their patriotism." Really? Perhaps you'd like to somehow evidence that? (And I'm ignoring the weaselly language in your question - I am all for healthy patriotism and national pride but I in no way supprt the MfE - those two things are not in any way comparable or equivalent)
    So I've addressed the major points.
    No, you're confused.

    You made some (poor) points and *I* addressed them.

Sunday's March for England event may be moved following the collapse of a road, police have confirmed.

The annual nationalist march is due to be held along the A259 King’s Road, Brighton.

Earlier this morning (April 25) part of the road collapsed.

Workmen had been fixing a fire exit at the Fortune of War pub, situated below the road.

The hole is located where nationalists are due to congregate ahead of the march on Sunday.

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said experts were on the scene carrying out an inspection.

She added a decision would be made later today or tomorrow into whether the march should be moved further down the road.
