What’s Going On?

Crivvens, jings and help ma boab! As workers are gearing up for a massive public sector strike on the 30th, the English Defence League are showing their true colours and falling apart as we speak!

The EDL’s love in with the fluffy fascist British Freedom has not gone over very well as lots of disgruntled members are busy resenting Mr Tommy for making a decision on their behalf. Folks have said that they do not like the Fluffies because they are too extreme whilst others do not like them because they’re not extreme enough. More sensible punters don’t like them because they have a crap logo that looks like Pacman. As one erudite poster put it ‘how about you and this British Freedom Party get to fuck and when you get there you fuck off some more.’ Quite. It has proved to be a bit of a PR blunder on behalf of Mr Tommy and has shown the EDL members that they are there to follow orders: as one poster complained ‘We were not consulted, we were told!’ The Fluffies are desperate for someone to notice them so thought that linking up with the EDL would be a cinch and that it would translate into instant membership at 30 clams a shot! Crivvens, the cash strapped EDL would rather donate that to Stella and Charlie, their royal couple! Mr Tommy is currently making a special edition pink  ‘Fluffy Hoody’ to flog to the gullible masses on their website as he is not allowed to go out by Mrs Tommy.

To make matter worse there was the leaked conversation between the Fluffy leadership on the EDL which spoke of them in less than flattering terms. The leak inspired some ‘creative explanations’ from the panicking Fluffies and signified the end of the honeymoon period of a  romance that had once seemed so promising. The EDL Facebook page was hacked yet again and each time they resurrect it their ‘likes’ are getting fewer and fewer. A lot of ‘members’ have walked away in disgust over the Fluffy link up, the violence and overt racism on the demos, the ‘backstabbing’ in local divisions and the fact that Tommy has been minting it from his daft stormtroopers. The EDL are a seriously depleted force and 1,000 likes on Facebook does not automatically translate to feet on the cobbles at demos. Fluffies take note! FACT!

The Fluffies are trying to please everyone by claiming that they are patriots and nationalists,  gay friendly and as non-racist and liberal as any other fascist exBNP member. They are also claiming that they have culled extremists from their ranks by kicking out Batty Lee Barnes, exBNP ‘legal advisor,’ but Simon ‘Plug Puller’ Bennett, Tony ‘Hammerhead’ Ward, Peter ‘Gay Dad’ Stafford and Peter ‘EDL are mindless thugs’ Mullethead are all exBNP and still at the helm. Barnes has been ‘retired’ to concentrate on his ‘novel’ about a time travelling kitten that can fly and is currently hailing ‘Tram Girl’ on YouTube as ‘a patriot to be proud of!’ So Fatty Barnes is back in the political wilderness again. Will he ever give it up?

Liverpool EDL have fallen out with Mr Tommy because he can’t understand what they are saying and they are Infidels by any other name. They are too stupid to change their Facebook status and do not want to delete the 335 likes of their made-up friends. They ‘mobilised’ at the weekend to attack the new Occupy site but then all fell out as only 5 warriors managed to get out of bed and stand over the road mouthing off like angry chimps. The Occupy movement is protesting against social inequality and corporate greed so when LEDL attack them we can only assume that they are fine with that. In a feeble Facebook damage limitation attempt they said that they support the forthcoming strike and march but the attempt to intimidate Occupy just shows them as a scab organisation.


And Another Thing …

The EDL offshoot Combined ExForces – regimental motto ‘Don’t Panic!’ – have all but disappeared after a spectacular public falling out last week. The CxF CO is Michael Rafferty, who has been dumped by Hayley ‘Kebab Attack’ Wells and is now shacking up with some other lucky gal who he promoted over the heads of other members which forced the 2nd in Command to sack Rafferty to which Rafferty responded by sacking the 2nd in Command. It all ended very badly with toys strewn widely around their respective prams. The EDL ranks continue to be depleted as various members are sent down for numerous offences: Blackburn EDL have been under the truncheon, 2 of Portsmouth EDL have just been done and West Yorkshire Plod (regimental motto ‘Evenin’ All’) have released photos of 10 EDL members they wish to chat to. Is this the kind of folk that the Fluffies are hoping to attract?

As is usual for this time of year there are numerous rumours flying about that ‘they’ have banned Christmas, that the Red Cross are not allowed to put up Christmas Trees and that ‘the PC Brigade’ (regimental motto: ‘Play Nicely!’) are trying too hard to mollify the ‘Muslamics’ by saying ‘Seasons Greetings’ instead of Merry Christmas. Total bollocks as usual and the Red Cross even had to release a public statement denying it!

So, what new PR disaster awaits the BF/EDL link-up? We shall see …
