March For England 2014!

Crivvens! Jings! And Help Ma Boab! It’s that time of year again when 100s of anti-fascists converge on Brighton in a massive show of solidarity whilst a 100 or so far right arsespangles bugle about on the seafront behind 10 times that amount of plod and specially erected fences for their own protection. This year the March For England is more like a short hop as they have been generously granted 400 yards near the seafront to do whatever it is they do and they have been talking it up somewhat.

Next Sunday will be a useful insight into the state of the far right as it is rife with its usual treachery, factionalism and inability to organise much beyond a trip to the off-licence. On Friday, a whole 8 far right protesters turned up for some reason at a mosque in London, which is about all they can gather these days, and were shocked to find some angry opposition in vastly superior numbers. Check this out!

And the far right are far from unity. As usual:


The South East Alliance (SEA) are cosying up to the MfE for numbers alongside the ‘anti-terrorist organisation’ the English Volunteer Force who are named after a terrorist organisation. The EDL leadership fell out with MfE some years back, bad blood remains and they will not show. Britain First, a small group of BNP expellees, refuse to hold hands with the MfE and are currently sulking. The NF have been ‘cleft in twain’ after an alco-coup led by 1 group of irrelevant ageing racists against another group of irrelevant ageing racists but a few disillusioned foot and mouth soldiers have claimed they will be turning out. The BNP is knackered.

This is the ‘leader’ of the SEA attacking a woman with a flag but accidentally smashing his partially witted son in the face. With co-ordination skills like that we can expect great things from the SEA!


The MfE are very keen on shouting their slogan ‘we go where we want’ but …


… the reality is, as usual, more prosaic. Sussex plod stated ‘The organisers of March for England made their intentions known to the police and the city more than six months in advance of the event, allowing for proportionate plans to be made for this event.’ So is it not more a case of ‘we go where we’re told?

The barely existent Casuals United lost a lot of face last week when they announced a protest in Preston and only 1 person turned up. He was much aggrieved at wasting over a £100 on a non-existent demo and much disharmony was spread! The Casuals are well known eejits as this shows:


Whilst many far right supporters blether away on Disgracebook saying they will be there, as the date comes closer, more of them drop out. On the day there is always a large amount of feeble excuses for no shows which are mainly due to spending the previous evening with the EDL’s royal couple Stella and Charlie. So who will turn up next Sunday? We shall see …

    hi, again the traders of Brighton are going to be affected by this awful march. can I ask my landlady, phone company, council, electricity, vat man, ect., etc., etc to reduce my bills as i won’t have any business this weekend…well no. here’s a thought. instead of giving the moronic EDL the fight they come to Brighton for – (there is after all no other reason why they would come here, we are not over run with immigrants or our British lifestyle being threatened by other peoples customs to be honest, I’ve never lived in such a ‘white’ area!) why don’t you just stand quietly, arms folded and just shake your head and tut when they go past. That will embarrass them and they’ll just go. it’s no fun if no one takes any notice. ignore them and like the silly little boys they are, they’ll find something more interesting to do…not in Brighton….unless the point is just want a fight too…
