A clarification

As a public service to the more impassioned contributors to comment threads across the blogosphere and the MSM who have offered their frequently incoherent views on recent events in Harrow, Birmingham and Luton, I would like to offer the following small but important clarification:

EDL (English Defence League), An evolving anti-Muslim protest group, built loosely around the existing infrastructure of organized football hooliganry, and formed as a reaction to a grossly offensive Islamist "protest" against homecoming British troops in Luton on 10 March 2009.

EDF (Électricité de France), A company generating and retailing electricity.

I have also seen very occasional references to the EDP in such comments. The EDP is not in fact a protest group but a daily newspaper based in East Anglia.
