Mr Lukaniuk needs to answer why these people went unchallenged when many of the Poles present knew exactly who they were:

This is the groups wikipedia entry:

I agree with Victors comments in the article linked to. Whilst obviously the presence of the group those people represented was undesirable, they were at least respectful of the event and did not attempt to make a nuisance of themselves.

As Victor states in the article, It was was a ceremony to unveil a memorial to those Polish nationals that fought during the war and anyone who wanted to pay their respects should have been able to attend. 'Vetting' would only have served to cause friction and further resentment

Personally, I'm baffled by the existence of such a concept as a fascist  group from a country that was overtaken by a fascist group and obviously suffered greatly as a result. However the Polish weren't exactly well treated by us in exchange for their help after the war either so in some small part I can understand some peoples feelings of resentment.

As usual with these types of groups the ones targeted for 'recruitment' are the ill-informed and disenfranchised members of society. There are plenty of natives of this country that don't make themselves look quite so obvious that share similar views and are equally undesirable.

At least the event and ceremony was respected by all that attended.

Can we have a memorial for the Indian nationals who fought for us in the (both) wars? Or the Nigerians, or for the French - all of whom have nationals represented in this town. 

And how much did this memorial cost - and did any part of my council tax payment contribute to it?

You are right. It was paid for by a Suffolk County Councilor Discretionary grant  - whom I do not pay tax to. But you did.
