Britain First’s High Court chickens coming home to roost

It’s hard to know quite where to begin with this, most recent Britain First scam. We could go on at length about the despicable hi-jacking of the tragedy in Nice to fill Britain First’s coffers but really there’s nothing new there. That, after all is what Britain First does. Like circling vultures, the Biffers jump on every available tragedy and do their best to make it all about them – for a profit, of course.

We could write about the hypocrisy of Britain First in assuming the Nice killer was motivated by ISIS whilst denying any relationship whatsoever between them and Jo Cox’s murderer, Tommy Mair. This in spite of the fact that the driver in NICE seems to have had no links to Daesh or even to any practicing Muslims.

We could write about the judiciary’s attitude to Britain First in general and the way that their apparent Teflon-coating seems finally to be wearing thin.

But we’re not going to do that (well only a bit). Instead we’re going to write about funding. This is the begging video that Britain First released following the Nice attack.

As you can see it begins with Golding discussing the events in France before quickly shifting to his own begging bowl. Claiming a ‘new’ outrage from Luton and Bedfordshire police he appeals for £15,000 to fight a ‘new’ injunction against Britain First. There’s only one problem – it isn’t ‘new’ at all.

On June 26th 2015 an interim injunction was granted by the High Court in respect of this exact appeal from the police in Luton. That’s the interim injunction curtailing Britain First’s activities in Luton at the hearing that Paul and Jayda continue to pretend to have ‘won’. It’s a strange definition of ‘victory’ that produces such a far-reaching injunction as this.

The fact is that Britain First have already raised funds to fight this particular case. And they’ve announced that they reached their target at least once (despite the sum’s omission from their published accounts). So why all the fuss now?

Partly they’re begging for more cash because that’s what they do. And partly they’re begging for cash because this may be one of their last opportunities to do so. Britain First has ignored most of the terms of this injunction since it was granted. The only clauses they seem to have stuck to are not entering Mosque property uninvited and not bringing crosses or their childish ‘No more mosques’ banner to Luton last June. They’ve completely disregarded the other two conditions (underlined below in red) and on August 15th their behaviour over the last year will be reviewed in the High Court. We suspect it won’t go well for the despicable duo!

This interim injunction was granted pending a full hearing ‘at a later date’. Now, a little over a year later that full hearing is fast approaching. It will be held at the High Court on August 15th 2016. As you can see the case reference number in both documents is the same(HQ15X02820). It’s the same case.

To put it another way, Jayda and the Fuhrer have spent the last year demonstrating increasing bravado. They’ve flouted the law of the land with growing (but misguided) confidence, presumably because as time passed they became more and more convinced that the case had just ‘gone away’. And Jayda’s supposed to understand English law!

Now the chickens are coming home to roost and the realisation of the risk they face has begun to sink in. This ‘later date’ hearing really might be the end of Britain First. It might be the end of Paul and Jayda’s personal liberty too (here’s hoping).

Not long now!
