The image was taken during the EDL demonstration in Birmingham city centre on Saturday. The prat in the EDL shirt is trying to stare down local resident Saffiya Khan, except she turns his brain into mush by not backing down and instead smiling bemusedly in his face:

Saffiya, who was eventually separated from the man by police sending them in different directions, says she stepped in to defend a friend who had been surrounded by an EDL crew:

I don’t like seeing people getting ganged up on in my town.

What an absolute nightmare for that EDL bloke – literally. Saffiya’s face is going to haunt his dreams forever. Smiling in the face of someone that hates you – what an absolute legend.

For other ways of dealing with protesters, get a load of this Trump protester getting her hair set on fire.
