​A view from a barstool #31 by Landlord

A hot week at Landlord central this week as our British weather finally realises it’s summer and the bright yellow speedos come out to play. I am reliably informed that this heat has been sent by Europe so biffers, kippers  and brexiteers please move to a cold area where you don’t have to sample the EU weather.

The news in brief, the government have decided to strip apart the human rights act, the French have gone apoplectic about a swimsuit of choice, the big breweries have hiked beer prices and in the US Trump met Farage for a kind of Racist get together, oh and a beardy sat on the floor of a train as there were/weren’t any seats left depending on your persuasion.

So to the news about biffers. Well mosque invasions, begging mail, old videos, the continuing absence of Screechy and the odd biffer troll accusing the admins of the page of being Muslims who are brainwashing readers of the page to our wicked ways( I’m sitting here with a particularly fruity Merlot and a bacon butty so by all means be brainwashed by me. Call the police I’m obviously radicalising you all).

Last week, Goldibollocks, and a team of shittroopers visited Cardiff to invade a mosque, demanding with menace, that a cleric stops preaching something that was debunked easily. They seem to visit on a Saturday, nowhere near prayer time when nobody is about apart from elderly gents going about mosque business. Needless to say, we have sent this information to the authorities as this appears to be in flagrant disregard of the conditions set up and accepted by Goldibollocks by the court.

The latest begging mails are nothing but hilarious, they seem to have forgotten Screechy’s legal fund and now requesting money for leaflets as they are getting more activists, although we have only seen the same racists in every picture or video. They could be coming to a town near you soon so please keep your cameras handy and send them to us.

The biggest question in the office, well not the biggest, ok my question, in actual fact no one cares but Marcia told me I have to ask it, where’s Screechy. Please can everyone look down the back of the sofa, under the bed(cringe). It seems like the biffer pin up has put a piece of tape over her gob and gone into hiding. I believe, and it’s my opinion only, that she was close to a coup, close to deposing der fuhrer, but Goldibollocks got in first and left her fucked. First he pled guilty to his charge, told her not to and left her facing jail time, secondly his high command have stopped begging for legal costs. It’s now all about him.

Finally we were visited by a cat, accusing us of being Muslims, being a one man band, radicalising you guys. Just about everything the biffer trolls do in several attacks. Just to reiterate we are several, atheists, Muslims, Christians, agnostic and human. We believe bigotry in all forms is wrong. So when we get trolls like the one we had we laugh, smile for screenshots and wait for “la grande flounce”

So that’s it for now, another week over and the barmaid has put another bottle next to me to enjoy.

No pasaran!

BF Reich eagle naziIt’s easy to pretend that stuff doesn’t matter, that it doesn’t concern us or that it just couldn’t possibly be as bad as all that because people wouldn’t allow it. We can sympathise with that view. People really won’t allow it. We won’t allow it!

It really is inconceivable that Nazism could rise again in modern UK. But why is it inconceivable? It’s not because there aren’t any Nazis left. We know there are plenty of those, not only here in UK but across the developed world. That’s the price we pay for our society’s tolerance – there’s always someone ready to hi-jack what we’ve built.

The real reason why Nazism cannot thrive in decent societies is ordinary people. People like you who don’t just assume that someone else will stop them. We all have our part to play in beating the modern threat of neo-nazism whether it comes from Britain First, the English Defence League, the New British Union, Unity, Pegida or anyone else.

If you pretend it doesn’t matter, you make yourself complicit. If you wait for someone else to spread the word and expose these thugs you miss an opportunity to halt the propaganda war that won’t simply stop with muslims or ‘lefties’.

All any of us have to do is tell our friends what we know whenever the subject comes up. When they share that Facebook meme from the EDL challenge it. When they praise the Biffers for facing up to extremists tell them about their true cowardice, hiding behind police and harrassing women and old men. When your relative likes that clickbait picture of kittens or traditional British fish and chips make sure you let them know who they’ve just ‘liked and shared’.

There is no official body of anti Nazis ready to swoop on fledgling fash like Britain First There are only ordinary people – individuals like you, doing their little bit when the topic comes up. That’s all we ask.

Will you do your part in this war of ideas?

They shall not pass!

No pasaran!

The betrayer is betrayed

Oh dear! Poor old Paulie seems a bit upset. And it’s hardly surprising.

EBF BF UKIP Even Farage hates Britain First.png

Do you remember all the time and effort he and his fascist mates invested acting as UKIP’s attack dogs in the run up to the 2015 general election? Who could forget how they gallantly intimidated a tiny woman on the South coast or the courageous way they attacked a troupe of cabaret performers who’d dared to criticise Uncle Nige? They even coughed up to fill the Landy with diesel for a day trip to Margate in their role as UKIP’s infamous SA shit-troopers.

And now look. Just as Uncle Adolf ditched Ernst Romme’s original SA when they got to be more trouble than they were worth, so Uncle Nige has done the very same thing with his version of the SA rabble. The only surprising thing is that anyone, even the Biffers, could be surprised.

EBF BF Galloway Farage snub Golding.png

Grasser Golding threw his hat into the ring in support of UKIP because he recognised that Nigel Farage is essentially just like him. They’re both wannabe chancers who turned their backs on the political parties who taught them their craft and they’re both opportunists who feed on fear and hatred to garner support.

It seems obvious that they’d both be capable of the same betrayal.

Just as Paulie stuck the knife in his old mentor, Nick Griffin, Uncle Nige has abandoned Paulie, his former thug-wrangler with equally little ceremony. Perhaps the inimitable Mr. Farage has realised what would happen to his MEP expenses if the UK pulled out of Europe. Something’s made him change his mind about the single issue he’s banged on about incessantly for the last 20 years.

Poor, poor Paulie.

We’d weep if only we could stop laughing long enough!

View from a Cellar

Landlord in cellarBack down in the cold of the cellar to get away from the couple of idiots that came into the pub with their Kipper literature. I tried, really really tried to be polite but their message and demeanour was repugnant to me. I tried to stay professional when I told them to bugger off, but in the end the Landlady took over and they seem to have left. You see these people see themselves as trying to get into power to me they are fascists, bigots and racists that need to be countered as much as the biffers, EDL, National Action et al. To some they are the acceptable face of the Bitish right wing movement, to me there will never be an acceptable one.

At the weekend we saw two different marches, one to stir up hatred and division, the other was to have a beer and a riot. One group succeeded the other didn’t. National Action, the EDL, National Front, Combat 18 and all the other undesirables had a “National day of Action” where patriots from all over the country would converge on Dover to prove they have widespread support for their racist bigoted views. That widespread support was proved to the princely sum of 150. They were countered by probably 300 Antifa. Now I heard before the march that both sides were intent in having a fight and maybe it wouldn’t be the place to visit which is what I was going to do. It was probably the wisest thing to do as before I opened reports came in of Antifa being attacked at a service station, coaches attacked and daubed with swastika’s in blood.

Unfortunately the follically challanged nazi’s also smashed up a coach which was taking some Russian schoolchildren to France. Well done Combat 18 well done indeed. At the riot, sorry march, the police tried to keep the two factions apart, as bricks and bottles were thrown. In the end in football parlance the score was a predictable draw, both managers claiming a win but neither came out with anything more than a shake of the head by us more liberal anti’s. The right say “we gave the left a kicking” Antifa said “we gave the right a good kicking” but in the end did anything actually come of it? Did the fash change the governments mind to burn mosques, the Qu’ran or close the borders? he answer is a big fat NO. Did Antifa stop the right from marching any more, come out with the moral high ground? Again the same answer.

In Dewsbury, if you believe the biffer high command, hundreds of patriots marched through the town to protest about the Muslim takeover of this country. I looked in my crisp store and they haven’t taken over that or my bar, my village or anywhere else I looked but there again I was always useless at hide and seek. I even asked Mr Khan in the corner shop if he was taking over the country but he doesn’t have time as he opens early and closes late. Biffer command also said faaaasands were turned away, buses didn’t stop and trains went straight through Dewsbury and didn’t stop. This was countered but this time the anti’s were kept from the cockwombles and no one heard the racist chants or rousing speeches apart from the 91 people there…..yes 91 not thousands. All of the biffer resources, the TV studio (chortle) the inflammatory video’s (snigger) and even Uncle Jim’s appearance could only muster 91 people. Once again they claim victory but this time it was definately a home win for the good guys.

This weekend in my favourite city, Birmingham, Tommy the convicted criminal, is staging the relaunch of Pegida with a silent march through Birmingham. There will be no alcohol, no chanting just a show of racist bunglecunts walking. Now I’ve seen evidence that the same fash from the weekend are going so silent could be violent pretty quick. Tommy says he is expecting thousands, I have 250 in the office sweepstake. At the end of the day he is walking through what possibly is the most wonderfully diverse city in Britain, where the vast majority of residents live peacefully hand in hand and this is what the right hates. Until Tommy, Goldibollocks, Weston and the kids at National action realise that the people of Britain may moan about the weather, warm beer, the state of our football team but when it comes to the right wing we don’t want you.

Which brings me back to UKIP. I have a severe intolerance of them, their politics and “acceptable racism” do not enter my pub again, don’t try and give my customers your literature as they will litter my floor with it. In fact no one likes the far right apart from the 250 people who marched this weekend.

Cheers

A different view from a barstool

Beer 2An easy Sunday,trying to kick the hangover from (yet) another lock in and suddenly a call for a video conference for the EBF admins comes out of the blue. In this it became clear that a new remit was required with the surge of new fash groups starting up all over this multi-cultural isle. Although we will continue to expose the Biffers at every turn it was decided to Expose Bigotry & Fascism in general. These groups, full of hate and vitriol need the EBF treatment as they too incite the same people who Britain First do. The only good thing from an Anti Fascist point of view is the fact that the right are so splintered and the leaders so suspicious of each other that they haven’t got a hope in hell of merging to give us Super Fash. That would be a nightmare to all those in the Antifa movement.

In my humble opinion, the Biffers are on the wain. Their reach on Facebook, however impressive is not what they want. They were formed to make as much money as they can for their leaders and now have become a laughable group who’s memes are becoming increasingly religious. Their links to KTI and their other offshoots are all too obvious. It is starting to piss the fash off, and the hardcore fash find other outlets to continue their hatred.

EBF Exposing Bigotry and Fascism.png

The EDL, SDL, Pegida, Casuals, Infidels, BUP, White Man March and all the others are hardcore racists. Where the Biffers think they are the acceptable face of racism and fascism (however misguided), the others are a home for white priders, drunks and football hooligans who see a punch up after a rally or march and arrest as a medal of honour.
Exposing Britain First’s Facebook page, Twitter and indeed this blog aren’t changing. We couldn’t stop challenging the stupidity and lies of Britain First. We will continue to debunk, challenge and laugh at them. Our lives will still be to ensure the break up of this odious of groups and the end goal is still the same. But the upsurge in support of other fascist groups and their plainly disgusting and vile actions (Pigs heads left at Mosques, picketing Friday prayers etc etc) need to be exposed too. Our pages won’t change, but we need to continue to Expose Bigotry & Fascism head on.

Now back to working on next weekends hangover.

Cheers

Vote any way you want – as long as it’s UKIP

Britain First broke the irony meter again this week! By supporting UKIP’s claim that democracy is dead they reveal not only their own anti-democratic stance but also that of their favourite political party.

Their political hero, Nigel Farage has claimed that Thursday’s Oldham West election was fixed because Asians didn’t vote for the UKIP candidate. That’s like complaining because turkeys don’t vote for Christmas (or ‘Thanksgiving’ as the American Biffers would understand it).

EBF BF UKIP Labour democracy Oldham west postal vote.pngWhat exactly does Farage’s tantrum mean for democracy though?
Not much as it happens. We’ve summarized our thoughts below…

The unelected (and unelectable) leader of a parliamentary political party has decided that since the people his party hates most have not voted for the party that hates them the most, democracy has failed. The message is clear…

It’s only democracy if UKIP wins. Otherwise it’s a fix!

The Landlord has landed!

Please welcome EBF’s newest administrator. Here the Landlord makes his EBF debut with a compelling, ‘from the heart’ explanation of his motives in fighting the fash. We think he’ll be a real asset to our little bunch of volunteers. The landlord had landed!

Beer 2Many times over the last couple of years I’ve been asked why I believe in what I do, opposing the far right to which I say…

“Whilst there is a breath in my body I will fight social injustice and bigotry.”

I’m a landlord, hence my name, in a leafy town somewhere in the Shires of the U.K. where I have seen a surge of support for UKIP, Britain First and other unsavoury groups. I have barred enough customers for the disgusting racist comments they made and also their actions. It was last November this came to a head. Three men in tatty green jackets with Britain First emblazoned on it came in to the pub. They were selling poppies, and tried intimidating customers to buy them. A local told me that the money doesn’t go to the RBL but to Britain First.

I ran them out of the pub with an old WWII vet and other staff. I was told by one my business would be shamed on their Facebook page. This was my first and by no means last run in with the biffers. This is also when I came across this page (as well as others) and started to fight back.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago.  A group of friends wanted to do something for the Syrian refugees so set up a group. I told my friends and my family about what we were trying to do.

I got a call out of the blue from my brother in law who’s friend was from the UK border agency asking me to go over to Calais and see for myself what was happening. Two weekends ago I went not knowing what to expect. There are just over 280 Syrians there, all men just as Britain First says, but that’s where their truth finishes and the incitement begins. They do have money, not much, but some, in actual fact the majority of them would probably be labelled middle class, they had good jobs, houses and their children went to good schools. Then Daesh, their government and now our governments have bombed 10 bells of shit out of their country. It was run or be killed. So get across the Med to Europe and get to Britain, not for benefits but for the humanity we’ve shown in the past. They’ve all got their families waiting in Kos, Greece or Italy waiting for word that they are in Britain claiming asylum.

Calais refugeesI saw the squalor they had left their homes for, the clothes given to them by charities instead of the Syrian equivalent of Next and as I left them you know what? I cried. I cried for the first time since the birth of my daughter. I cried because Britain First have the audacity to infer the refugees should be drowned, bayoneted and other despicable ways to kill them. I cried because I despaired at this countries nimbyism and the disgusting headlines from the government’s propaganda machine. Then my faith was restored, 40000+ marchers in London, 5000 in Edinburgh, marchers in Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester, Liverpool, and Birmingham. A sign went up outside my council saying Refugees welcome here.

You see, the biffers may be loud, have a social media presence and spread spurious lies about Islam and refugees but slowly the silent majority are starting to make a noise and the far right don’t like it. And those marches, pages like these, you the followers of pages like Exposing Britain First have restored my faith in this beautiful, diverse, multi cultural and tolerant Britain.

So that is why I fight biffers and jumped at the chance to join this page
