Sunderland & Others!

Crivvens! Jings! And Help Ma Boab! The Tory Party are boning up to attack the poorest of society whilst the right wing press call all benefit claimants ‘scroungers.’ These include ‘scroungers’ who have lost their jobs recently through redundancy, scroungers who are about to lose their jobs in the massive public sector cuts and ‘scroungers’ under 25 who are going to be denied housing benefit – but don’t worry, they can all live in the affordable public housing that’s not being built! Of course, the Tory Party will ignore the individuals and companies who are avoiding paying taxes which we are all fine about. Meanwhile, the far right are moaning about a mosque.

The North-East Infidels!

In case you missed it the joint forces of the National Front, Infidels and EDL gathered in Sunderland at the weekend ‘to protest against a mosque’ which translates as ‘fighting cops, throwing bangers and bottles and generally acting like bugles.’ 13 were arrested. Well done. Their current tactic is to turn up and be as irritating as possible in order to attract media attention otherwise it just looks like some blokes near a mosque. They did get some attention but yet again were shown to be drunken football hooligans being racist. Not the best PR. The demo was yet another attempt to ‘unite the right’ which inevitably failed. Shortly after the demo the Casuals and the Infidels fell out again after one called the other ‘a grass.’ There was the usual toys/pram scenario and they all hate each other now. Good. The National Munters have claimed that they will be staging the protest every month but good luck with that. They have enormous difficulty sobering up in time and getting the numbers. This current fallout will not help matters.

The Casuals: Casually Employed (If At All).

Whilst this was going on up north, down south another bunch of far right bugles got shouty with plod and tried to set fire to a flag which embarrassingly failed. Witness the Mighty Right here:

The gig was apparently organised by ‘Diamond’ Jim Dowson, who regular readers will know from the BNP, but it was apparently hijacked by a handful of BNP members and other assorted eejits and sort of fizzled out as passers-by looked on confused as to what they were actually on about. Meanwhile, the collected bugles of Combined ex-Parcel Forces had a weekend off to play with their Action Men.

Combined Ex-Farcicals: ‘Lovely Boys!’

As for the English Defence League, Mr Tommy and UnKle Kev Karrol have been making eejits of themselves on the wireless! Mr Tommy is leading his ever-diminishing tribe of tramps to Rotherham to complain about something or other and in an interview, as usual, he lost his temper, lost the argument and lost a few more supporters. We lasted about 5 minutes before making a trip to the off-licence to recuperate! He gets shown up as the racist hooligan he is:

Tommy Robinson

Here’s a tip Mr Tommy: Anger Management! Mr Tommy has said Rotherham is going to be a ‘local’ demo which basically means that he knows he won’t get the numbers for a  national one. Attendance at the EDL demos have fallen massively over the last year and he will be lucky to get a couple of hundred here. Many supporters are annoyed with him for running away at Walthamstow and bored of not achieving anything. Needless to say, the remaining dregs will turn up, be surrounded by plod and kettled in a car park somewhere whilst claiming ‘no surrender.’ Mr Tommy was also scheduled to speak at the Muslim Debate Initiative which has now been called off, which he is very pleased about as he doesn’t know what he is talking about and just gets angry. The EDL have also been appealing to victims of ‘muslamic grooming gangs’ to get in contact with them. Why anyone who may have been sexually abused would wish to confide in the likes of convicted woman beater Mr Tommy and unKle Kev Karol is lost on us but good luck with that one Tom.

Kommissioner Kev Karol To The Rescue!

UnKle Kev made a compete clootie out of himself on the wireless as well whilst campaigning for the Police Commissioner gig. Like Mr Tommy, he thinks shouting loudly wins an argument. It doesnae!

So all in all a patchy weekend for the far right: the Sunderland thing made them look like pissed hooligans; the flag burning was embarrassing to watch and no one noticed; the media are still portraying the EDL as mindless thugs; and the ‘Unite The Right’ call has yet again backfired following the arguments, fallouts and abuse. Braw! Be seeing you!

    The flag they burnt turned out to be made of a synthetic fibre, didn’t burn more like dripped.

    I live in Sunderland and I have noticed where they are meeting to plan their anti-mosque activities – it’s a pub called the Willow Pond on Hylton Road. I got a nasty shock when I went in last week, just fancied a pint, then I noticed lots of union jacks all over the place, next thing it was “would you like to sign our petition against the mosque”… on the way out I noticed a sign saying they were meeting on wednesday evening to plan their weekend demo… time for me to find another boozer…

      Here in WSM the EDF had littered the area around the college with business cards which were gratefully accepted and torn up and used as roaches.
