Football Lads Alliance vs. Democratic Football Lads Alliance Pre-Match Report.

Crivvens! Jings! And Help Ma Boab! It’s been a busy few days cos we’ve had to upsticks and move the yurt even further south due to cruel temperatures. And not only that, we spent most of yesterday with the garden shears tending Nanatesta’s Brazilian. I also got sacked from the sawmill cos apparently you can’t turn up drunk. Fux sake, I’d have been sober by lunchtime after a few more ales!

FLA’s Fatty Bawbag! He Stops Terrorism! 

But anyway, whit’s goin’ on? The far right’s current narrative is identifying UK Muslims as either rapists, terrorists or both, whilst cheering for Brexit even though negotiations with the EU are more concerned with the customs union, single market access and trade deals outside the Euro-Zone and have yet to  deal with the racist fuckbucket stuff. So to help the situation, the Football Lads Alliance (FLA), a UKIP front group of soccer team enthusiasts, are having a demo today in Birmingham. And so are splinter groupuscule the Democratic Football Lads Alliance (DFLA) so there may be a few harsh words at half time. The DFLA formed because of FLA fuhrer John Meighan’s alleged undemocratic use of funds and general bossiness so decided they wanted a slab of that lovely racist cash themselves.

Meighan: Football Fan-Dabby-Dozy!

As our good friends at Far Right Criminals have said, the FLA are the EDL without knowing it and as seasoned anti-fascists know very well, far right demos have done abysmally in Birmingham and surrounding areas. In 2009, the EDL were embarrassingly mass arrested; in Walsall, 2012,the EDL got kettled by plod and threw street furniture at their chums; and in 2015, Smelly Crossland, the inept and now sacked EDL leader, was humiliated by a local, female, Muslim, anti-fascist. But, if we all hold hands and pray, Im Shallah, the FLA vs DFLA thing should be equally spectacular with arrests, fallouts, and squabbles aplenty!

The FLA rally with be addressed by Ann Marie ‘Feargal’ Waters who we have written about previously.

Poor quality jokes and insufficient research aside, we do take the FLA mobilisations of dozens of football firms very seriously but also note that: despite frequent calls for unity, key members have fallen out and a splinter faction has already emerged; there are still complaints about Meighan’s lack of accountability; and rising anger over cash, egos and backstabbing – the triumvirate of problems that the far right succumb to. Not only that, but the FLA’s desire to ‘oppose terrorism’ is very vague: most people are against acts of terror on the UK streets but what can the FLA do about it? How long until their anger turns into a sense of futility? And what about terrorists like white van killer Darren Osbourne, homophobic psycho Ethan Stables, or would-be mosque bomber Connor Ward?

Anti-fascists will be watching the FLA vs DFLA match very closely whilst observing UKIP’s current problems with law suits, scandals and inefficient leadership, or Business As Usual. Anti-fascists won’t have been surprised to hear that imprisoned Britain First leader Paul Golding got slapped up in the Majesties priz and is now weeping into his halal turkey twizzlers on the nonce wing. Interesting times.

Be Seeing You!
