CXF: Neither Combined Nor Forceful

Christmas is coming and the EDL’s goose is cooked so this is a timely opportunity to investigate a few of the other deluded groupuscules that are currently floating in the far right toilet long after the flush. Not being fans of the armed forces, what with all that shouting and getting up in the morning, we have only recently discovered the informal military term, ‘Walt.’ A Walt, for those of you not in the know, is a pretend soldier, someone who deliberately exaggerates or simply lies about their military service and it is derived from Walter Mitty, James Thurber’s fictional fantasist (played by the ever excellent Danny Kaye in the movie!). So it was with some delight that we came across not one but two threads on the ARRSE military forum disparaging the wannabe soldiers of the Combined Ex Forces, a rather saggy and deluded winnet hanging off the sheep’s arse of the EDL.

To be a member of CxF one does not need to have been in the forces merely to have been a sixer at cubs. You simply need to buy an ‘official’ CXF hoodie off your local squadron leader and then pop down the Army & Navy to buy an ill-fitting beret. Please note, that the more the beret looks like a depressed soufflé on your head the better! CXF have had a less than ‘comradely’ history. An early division in the ranks occurred when Mike Rafferty claimed he was CO but was then sacked by his rival who took on the title instead. Raffers went off in a sulk and joined up with the Combined Ex-Services and as we all know they are doing very well indeed. One CXS, Neil Simple, even wrote to the Queen saying he had ‘watched And Waited for your SIGNAL, Your WORD, Your NOD of Consent to RID this Country, OUR country of Quislings & Traitors USERS & ABUSERS.’ It is not known if she wrote back. Or indeed understood this missive. CXF are no different from most tiny organisations on the far right in that they have a predilection for giving themselves titles and honours, usually of the highest order. The CXF has a Commanding Officer and 2nd In Command but no catering staff or admin section. One member of CXF is Mike Mosley, who unlike the others was actually in the armed forces. Sadly, we have to show you this photo of him in full dress uniform:

Another member of CXF is Paul Walsh who was in the King’s Own Regiment and was given a dishonourable discharge after he was caught thieving from his comrades and then deserted in Cyprus. This is the disgraced soldier hijacking a Remembrance Day parade. He is in full Regimental Trainers with Arse hanging out of tatty jeans.

He may be a bugle but at least he can keep time, unlike this tuboidal arse hamster:

CXF are very keen on hanging around sex case trials and yet have remained strangely silent about Matthew Woodward, one of their ‘regional leaders’ who was done for child pornography. Here he is on the left, with a couple of other Regimental fuckwits:

Not only that but they hang about with Liam Pinkham, an unreconstructed Nazi who recently felt the tender caresses of Liverpool Anti-Fascists shortly after getting out of prison. Liam was exposed by us for ‘grooming’ a 15 year old girl but it’s okay, her mum, another unpleasant nazi by the name of Kim, said he was ‘the perfect gentleman!’ So that’s okay then! May we suggest a change to CSO? Combined Sex Offenders? CXF turned up at one case in Liverpool, caused a ruckus and almost had the trial stopped after one of their mates attacked what he thought was a suspect but in fact was a solicitor. Oopsies!

Despite the fact that CXF often operate following ‘Intelligence’ they don’t often seem to possess much of it themselves (I Thank You!).  Recently a ‘delegation’ of CXF were investigating the claim that some poppy selling cadets had been harassed by ‘muslamic’ stall holders in Liverpool market. They went to speak to plod, the local paper and the radio all of whom verified that no such thing had happened. They claimed they did an interview on the wireless but it was never played.

At risk of repeating ourselves this quote sums up a lot of real soldiers’ feelings about the CXF: ‘Some friends of mine bumped into some of these guys at a service station after a football match, the Walts had been to an EDL demo and were giving it large saying that they were all soldiers and were saving everyone. Instead they were taunting a young Indian family. Needless to say they were corrected by some real soldiers, with the help of some naughty football fans, in the carpark.’

CXF’s claims are not to be trusted. They have threatened to ‘expose’ anti-fascist posters on Secure Comms, i.e., Facebook, several times over the last few weeks but have yet to do anything. They also said they were going down to London to support the equally miniscule Infidels group protesting a mosque but claimed they had all been arrested by the Super Army Soldiers that morning and couldn’t come. Sadly, they unwittingly revealed that they had actually gone to the Everton game instead. The Infidels were furious and they all fell out. Again. Unite The Right? On Opposite Day! Be Seeing You!
