Fransen and Golding were in Dewsbury to stir up trouble last weekend. With a handful of thugs and hangers on they took the Biffer banner around local Mosques hoping to get a response. Seemingly the local Muslims ignored them because not a single piece of footage appeared online showing how those beastly Muslims had attacked the brave Biffers. In the absence of any real opposition the Biffers illustrious deputy-leader was reduced to lying about it (again), referring to Muslims who apparently had the audacity to object to BF coming to Dewsbury to tell the locals that they weren’t welcome there. The irony may be too much for Biffers to understand but it seems pretty obvious to the rest of us.
Fransen and Golding seem to take video support crews with them wherever they go and we can be sure that if any Muslims had protested against them they’d have been filmed and their images plastered all over social media by now but (as usual) Fransen was unable to produce a scrap of footage as evidence. To date only three of their videos have shown any real hostility and they were all clearly the result of significant provocation by the Biffers themselves. It’s actually a testament to the tolerance of UK Muslims that Britain First can go to a town they don’t live in, presume to shout about how the locals don’t belong there and face so little actual aggression as a result.
Perhaps most people were still asleep in Dewsbury just after dawn last Saturday morning. The video does seem to have been shot very early in the day with few people on the streets and some very long shadows. Local EBF supporters tell us that by mid-morning there were no Biffers to be seen in Dewsbury at all which doesn’t surprise us. They don’t usually hang around anywhere where they can’t get police protection. The Biffer definition of ‘bravely taking their country back’ is to turn up, take a few early morning videos and then leg it before the locals spot them.
Whilst they were in Dewsbury the Biffers did manage to find a newspaper report. Buying the current copy of the local paper, on sale in newsagents throughout the town, doesn’t seem quite as impressive a feat as Fransen implies. On the video she claims that a couple of the Biffers found it in the local library but that seems unlikely.
Biffers in a library?
That really is pushing the limits of plausibility too far!
I remember my eldest girl’s childish excitement when she realised her school friends had been mentioned in the local newspaper for a charity event they’d been involved in. Her glee was over the top by grown up standards but perfectly reasonable for a little girl. Actually I was quite proud of her that she could be so happy for someone else. The article hadn’t involved my girl at all.
Fransen looks like she might wet herself at the fact that Britain First has hit the front page of a small local newspaper in a small town in West Yorkshire. Her reaction reminded me of my eldest’s but for all the wrong reasons.
It’s true that the Biffers made the paper. It’s also true that there’s even a quote from Jayda herself in there. That should appeal to her attention-seeking nature. But there’s nothing positive about Britain First in the article itself. Here are a few highlights…
“A RALLY by far-right group Britain First is set to go ahead in Dewsbury on Saturday January 30 – and they plan to flout changes police want to make to their parade route.”
MP Paula Sherriff hopes Dewsbury will be open for business as usual when far-right protesters Britain First come to town on January 30. She said: “Britain First appears to be intent on stirring up trouble in Dewsbury. We fight hard to achieve community cohesion here and visits such as this are unwelcome.”
“If Britain First cared about our community and the town centre they wouldn’t be doing this.”
“If they’re coming to incite hatred against another community then I think that’s wrong.”
“Certainly in my ward there’s a feeling that these people don’t care about Dewsbury and that they should be ignored.”
