Today saw fash from all over UK travelling to support their favourite thugs in Dewsbury and Dover. Folding Golding has spent the last month or so crowing about how popular his bunch of vagabond Biffers has become. He claimed that the newly created dance of division – ‘The Dewsbury shuffle’ would take the UK by storm, attracting hundreds if not ‘faasands’ (sic) of neo-nazis to hassle the good people of West Yorkshire.
Unluckily for him, Britain First wasn’t the only nasty bunch of neo-nazis out annoying people today. The National Front had organised their own antisocial soiree in Dover. Such is the skilful co-ordination of British fascism – they can’t even refrain from competing with each other. Or maybe that’s the point. Maybe today’s events were part of some perverse popularity contest to see which group holds the most sway over our nation’s far-right fringe.
So let’s have a look at what happened. Where did the rest of Britain’s bored bovver-boys choose to spend their time. They could join Britain First in Dewsbury which is actually relatively central (especially given how many of the far-right seem to congregate around Manchester, Newcastle and south Yorkshire) or they could travel to the South coast (a much longer journey for most) to meet up with the National Front. Which journey would you choose?
It seems that several of these disaffected drunken drones chose to go out of their way to join the NF in Dover. Many, such as these members of the imbibing brotherhood had to drive right past Dewsbury on their way South. That’s an extra few hundred miles in a minibus just so they could snub Grassing Golding and his combined force of a few dozen cockwombles.
The actual numbers (according to our spotters’ best estimates) were…
The results are in. And it’s a landslide! The award for the least popular fash group goes to…
The National Front!
Grassing Golding hasn’t got too much gloating room though. Any genuinely popular ‘registered political party’ with 1,300,000 Facebook likes holding a rally in the middle of Britain should get way more than that. The Biffers have been advertising this for months now, urging people to join them and doing everything in their power to encourage a high turnout. Even with ALL their officers and officials in attendance they only just scraped into triple figures. Without all the plastic paramilitary ‘ranking officers’, division leaders, unlicensed bouncers, paramilitary style standard bearers and attention-seeking speakers they would have mustered far fewer.
That’s the real lesson from today’s fascist fiasco. Even combined the two groups (and all the assorted fascist groups who chose between them) couldn’t make it to 200 attendees. With massive advertising from both sides, an entire country to draw people from and enough geographical variation to make at least one of these events accessible for just about everyone they still got an embarrassingly low turnout.
Face it fascists – you’re finished here in UK. Less than 200 people between you. And as for Grassing Golding’s lot. That’s just ridiculous.
