EDL: Post-Mortem!

A post-mortem spasm is when a dead body continues to twitch before rigor mortis sets in and it seems that the English Defence League is suffering from a seriously contracted one. Someone should tell the clueless winnets clinging to the EDL’s prolapsed rectum that ‘the biggest protest movement ever of all time ever’ is over. The recent demos have been piss poor: Slough just over 100, Peterborough a couple of hundred, and every day there are the usual recriminations and fallouts with members slagging each other off and accusing each other of ‘egos,’ ‘backstabbing’ and general unpleasantness.

falling out!

Of course they’ve hardly been helped by the somewhat drastic jailings of dozens of members for the Walsall riot in 2012. What happened was the ‘neither racist nor violent but both’ EDL were kettled in a side street when they violently reacted then posted boastful  footage of them kicking off all over Youtube. Well done. Plod put out a Grimewatch poster that had many of them cacking it badly before being sent down – which is about to increase in number after another dozen or so clueless bugles had their case adjourned this week and have no doubt spent the weekend packing their toothbrushes!

Despite cries for unity the state of the far right is pretty fragmented: the rump EDL is staggering like a drunk in a graveyard; the NF have been ruined by internal splits; the ever diminishing Infidels have either fallen out with each other or are in jail; the English Volunteer Force is desperately ‘uniting’ various 1 man organisations such as the laughable Bristol Defence League and made complete arsespangles of themselves today with a miniscule ‘flash demo’ in Cricklewood which was as pointless as it was embarrassing. Here they all are:


Meanwhile publicity desperate ‘Britain First’ were hassling the equally pointless ‘British Taliban’ near a chippy or something. Like everyone else we hardly noticed the ‘White Cider’ demo in Swansea when about 20 nazi fantasists turned up where they weren’t wanted. This ‘mass mobilisation’ including a couple of the Convicted Ex-Forces, including the deserter who was booted out for thieving off his mates, and Joanne Dickens who sports a Celtic cross on her lady lumps. A friend of ours questioned her about this but she claimed that it was not a right wing symbol. Aye, and neither is this swastika on me arse love. This is the ‘neither racist nor violent’  Ms. Dickens at her most charming:


Of course the main thing this month is the massive anti-fascist celebration down in Brighton which is also when a few dozen pissed up ‘patriots’ try and ‘peacefully’ march through the town before either getting nicked, slapped or bussed out rapido by an increasingly vexed populace. The March For England claims it is a ‘St George’s family day out’ but all evidence would seem to contradict this. Check the link:

March For England Violent Threats

So despite the depressing news from France this week about the Front National electoral successes, the far right in perfidious Albion are doing less than well. See you at the seaside!

    Your stuff is funny ‘arsespangles’ ‘cockwombles’ ‘Unkle Kev’s caravan’ etc etc. However I’m not sure why you constantly play down the numbers – there were around fifty white pride activists in Swansea yesterday – you weren’t an eyewitness so why contradict those who were by saying there were twenty?

    In Slough there were around 150 EDL – I wasn’t in Peterborough but estimates range at around the 250 mark.

    As for the March for England we are expecting around 150 – 200 especially as they’ve really tried to pull all the stops out for it. Not ‘a few dozen’.

    Ridiculing the far-right is a valid tactic but constantly re-iterating (wrongly) that they are a tiny handful serves only to cause apathy amongst those who should be opposing them.
