Indeed, the rhetorical and symbolic reference to Christianity, the crusades and the use of the St George’s flag in EDL messages would appear to confirm this (Busher, 2012: 20). Official messages also posit Christianity as underpinning ‘our’ morality and contrast its ‘truly ancient values’ with Islam, which is described as ‘some half-baked concept from a warmongering paedophile’ (Dave Russell, Luton demonstration, recorded in field diary, 22 November 2014).12 However, evidence from this study found that among grassroots members of

In his first draft, Szecskő predicted a strengthening of ‘individualistic orientation toward consumption; [and] growing doubts as to the [possible] emergence, [or even] the need for a socialist type of morality’ (Document 7, 1974).
