We all thought that Amanda Slatter had got fed up of Britain First’s failure to achieve anything beyond filling Paul and Jayda’s pockets when she gave up her position as Regional Commanding Officer and defected to Pegida. Like so many turncoat fash before her we thought she’d simply got tired of waiting to receive her share of the profits and headed off to pastures new, leaving her former comrades to stew in their own juices. Ex EDL ‘Angel’ and long-term buddy of Tommy Robinson she looked for all the world like any other fickle fascist out to make a fast profit at the expense of – well, everyone really.
How wrong we were.
It seems that unbeknown to her former rival, Jayda Fransen and even her erstwhile lover, Pieman Lewis Slattery cat was actually working for Uncle Jim Dowson and his cabal of venture capitalist all along. She was the messenger, the go-between who smoothed the waters for Tommy Robinson’s second great defection (the first being in favour of Islamic anti-terror organisation, Quilliam).
It’s no secret that Uncle Jim’s money men have become increasingly frustrated at Fuhrer Golding’s ineptitude. Falling numbers and increasingly meagre donations have made Britain First’s American and Eastern European investors more and more nervous about their chances of receiving any sort of return on their investment. These guys have invested a lot of cash in Britain First and they expect big money in return. Watching Golding squander their original stake has pissed them off to put it mildly.
That’s the reason why Fransen was being groomed to take over this summer. She was all set to be the next Fuhrer right up until the time she pinned her colours to Paul’s metaphorical mast and got herself in just as much hot water as Grasser himself. It would have been so easy for her to take over the leadership (and the London candidacy) if only she’d left Paul to face the music with the police and answer bail for political uniform without her. We’re told that was the advice she was repeatedly given and which, after her brief post-Burton wobble, she repeatedly ignored.
After the dismal failure to attract more than 117 Biffers in Burton (including the party faithful and paid employees) Slattery cat was despatched to negotiate with Turncoat Tommy. The erstwhile EDL leader, for all his obvious faults looks like a far more likely investment than either Dutchy or Grasser. He still retains his sizeable support from the Imbibing brotherhood and could rally many more ‘troops’ to the Biffer cause than they currently command.
Let’s not forget that Tommy stewarded the EDL to its heyday when 5,000 racists regularly took to the streets in violent demonstrations in answer to his call. He was a much better merchandiser and the profits he made during those days far outweighed anything the Biffers can even dream of.
So we’re told the deal is done. Folding and Dutchy will take what’s coming to them as the full weight of law crashes down upon their heads. Dowson’s purse is now firmly closed to them. No expensive lawyers will be pleading their case this time. And with their defeat in the courts, all claim to their leadership of BF will also crumble around them. They might even go to prison this time – so much the better for the Biffers.
There’s a new leadership team in waiting. Tommy and Mandy are ready to take over just as soon as Der Fuhrer and Dutchy are removed. The deal is done, the retainer has been paid and Tommy knows better than to take money from these particular investors without fulfilling his part of the bargain.
