It would be more effective if the EDL would round up the Muslims into their neighborhoods and then burn down the neighborhoods.
They should do what Muzzie America would never do here; RAID EACH AND EVERY MOSQUE WITHOUT NOTICE AT CHANGING INTERVALS. Treat them like our government treats the Tea Party here!
But the government would send all their law enforcement and military forces against the EDL if the EDL became really aggressive. The Brit government will still go much further to protect the Moslems than their own native citizens.
There will have to be massive protests representing most of the population to get their government's attention, plus more electoral victories by the UKIP.
