How do you feel about democracy?
What about self-determination?
What’s your view on local people having control over local decisions?
This Saturday Britain First will be trampling over all the above principles. They’ll be invading the West Midlands town of Dudley in protest at the democratic, self-determination of Dudley’s people. They’ll be shipping in as many outsiders as they can muster to protest in the town because the locals made a decision that Paul Golding happens to disagree with.
Like their political inspiration, UKIP, Britain First talks a lot about local decision-making, about democracy and about self-determination. But only when the decision-makers agree with them. Any council that disagrees with Britain First can expect busloads of outsiders to descend upon their town to protest about stuff that really isn’t any of their business. Individuals who oppose either Britain First or UKIP can expect angry biffers to doorstep them in an effort to curtail their freedom of speech.
We can only imagine what they’d do if they ever got any actual power.
If you’re unfortunate enough to be in Dudley this weekend be warned that the Nazis are coming to town and experience shows us that when that happens it’s rarely pretty. If Britain First’s ‘pre demo’ propaganda is to be believed they’ll be out in force. The beefers claim around 2,000 fascists will be swarming into Dudley and even allowing for their usual exaggeration West Midlanders can probably expect at least a couple of hundred.
We would never advocate anyone putting themselves at risk – these people can be dangerous (especially in a crowd) but if you are planning on opposing Britain First on Saturday you might find this leaflet useful. Feel free to print off your own copies for distribution on the day.
