Let the outrage commence by Landlord

Beer 2The I’m outraged at ……. season has begun at Biffer command and watch out if your skin is slightly more tanned than theirs… you’re going to get it. As sure as eggs are eggs Poppy anger rolls into Christmas being banned, into Easter being stopped into St George’s day and then back to Remembrance Day again. You can set your watch, calendar or phone by it when frothing biffers recount tales of unicorns and pots of gold at the rainbow’s end – or lies as we like to call them.

The first unicorn instance started early, a guy in TfL uniform was accused of telling a poppy seller to get orf the land, cue outrage and the frothfest began. One of my colleagues actually sent a comment to TfL about it and was told that it happened in 2013 and he was actually protecting her. But it was enough for the bigots to fire the starting pistol on Muslim bashing.

The next unicorn instance came as England cricket players left to go to the ashes down under. In a team picture Moeen Ali didn’t have the obligatory poppy on his suit for the team picture, although he did have one later when they landed. But this was enough to start the foaming with super suds. Now I’ve actually met Mo at a cricket against racism event at the Oval, and I have to say he’s a lovely bloke. He is so proud of pulling on the Three Lions shirt, kisses the badge when he scores a ton and proud of representing his country, something Screechy and Goldibollocks and the high command can only dream of. If Moeen says it fell off I believe him more than the fucknuggets at Biffer Towers.

I noticed that as news of Moeen’s slip broke, Screechy and Goldibollocks were protesting about something or other and didn’t have Poppy’s on and neither did have the majority of supporters but we won’t make a fuss.

As regular followers of this page will know Screechy, Goldibollocks and the high command have a bit of previous with Poppy’s, the Royal British Legion and the false patriotism that they attach to it. They also have short memories about respect unlike Moeen. These are not made up details they are actual facts.

1. whilst an erstwhile member of the BNP Goldibollocks decided to wear underwear on his head at the cenotaph (rumours of them being Steve Lewis’s are as yet unproven) I haven’t seen Moeen do this as I suspect he thinks this is disrespectful.
2. The biffers try to sell poppy tat. The high command and the shittroopers have peddled their own crappy merchandise despite being asked to stop by the RBL. They didn’t and no money was ever received by the RBL even though the biffer blurb told their sheeple it would. The RBL have also said they wouldn’t take anything from them as they don’t accept donations from a political party. So Screechy and Goldibollocks have pocketed the dosh. There’s a video about too where an old man confronts Goldibollocks and a shittrooper about selling this. Goldibollocks in true biffer style then runs away. I doubt Moeen would have done this as it would be theft and a little disrespectful.
3. Last year Goldibollocks and Screechy sent their shittroopers out to various shopping centres and places where poppy sellers were. They instructed their accomplices to get selfies with the sellers and then posted these on Facebook saying they were guarding them from lefties and Muslims. This caused a such a furore as parents and military cadet organisations to request the removal of the pictures and had to issue statements to the effect of they didn’t know who the biffers were. Moeen I expect would only take selfies with fans of England Cricket, he’d never take selfies to pass them off as guarding pictures as that would be disrespectful.
So there you have it, a misplaced poppy, a foamfest from the cockwombles and racist comments from the bifferati. But there again who is the more disrespectful, Moeen Ali, a cricket player who proudly represents his country or a group of scam artists who rip off the RBL, use kids to further their hate and worship a thundercunt who walks around with y fronts on his head. The decision is yours.

Don’t believe everything you read

A few weeks ago we reported on a running gun battle that had taken place in Chesterfield, home of the Biffer Walts’ Divisional Commander, Robin Lomax. It obviously covered a huge amount of ground as the same battle, involving the same people also happened at exactly the same time in Wakefield, Bradford, Basingstoke, Launceston, Wolverhampton and even Memphis, Tennessee! As we remarked at the time…

“ISIS don’t ‘alf get about, don’t they?”

And this morning we hear of yet another amazing feat of terror and counter-terror teleportation through time and space. The same extremists and law enforcement agencies find themselves re-enacting their violent engagement in at least three different venues that are once again, quite literally an ocean apart. This time they’ve been to Croydon, Wichita and Orlando. And all in the name of ‘charity’ apparently.

EBF You couldn't make it up.png

We’d dearly love to know where any money the ‘News portal’ website might make actually goes. If you have any information on the subject please let us know. There are rules governing collecting for charity, including proper registration with governing bodies both here and in the USA (where the site appears to be based) and a quick word in the appropriate ear might not go amiss.

All that aside though, we’re told that nothing more interesting happened in Croydon last Monday than the moment when little Jimmy Armstrong dropped his fishcake and chips in a puddle on the High Street. But his Gran bought him some more so all’s well that ends well.

EDL shows its spiteful true colours

The English Defence League, under the auspices of its new, post-Tommy leadership has decided to target Preston, that well-known hotbed of Islamic extremism for its next demonstration. Readers of this blog may well have heard of this fine, multicultural Northern town before.

EDL Preston Feb 2016

Preston is the home town of those public-spirited, outstanding Muslim citizens who volunteered to put themselves out so much during December’s floods. They even drove 100 miles North to help out with evacuations, distribute food and donate money and bedding. These are the guys who raised over four thousand pounds down the local Mosque for flood victims in less than a week. These are the guys who demonstrated that renowned British spirit of helpfulness and selfless service to others. The fact that it’s also a foundational element of Islam may not be all that familiar to the drunken defenders of England but they should at least be able to recognise the generosity that they claim as their own.

On the other hand, we at EBF don’t remember reading anything at all about the selfless generosity of EDL members during those difficult times. We’d be happy to stand corrected if anyone can furnish us with newspaper articles about the EDL helping flood victims in their hour of need. Just post the links in the comments below. Go on – feel free.

And how will this noble and knightly order  of the imbibing brethren honour the service of Preston’s Muslim community?
Will they contribute to the Mosque’s next charity appeal fund?
Will they write a letter to the newspapers in praise of Islamic selflessness?
Will they post a message of appreciation on their Facebook page?

We doubt it.

What they will do is go and make a nuisance of themselves next month, terrorising Preston’s Muslims and stirring up as much trouble as they can before nipping off for a beer and a punch up.

And they think of themselves as the embodiment of all that’s British.

We think they could learn an awful lot about Britishness and even about common decency and humanity from Preston’s Muslims. We don’t expect that they will though! Bleedin’ nazis!

Alam Sher: An inspiration to us all

Alam Sher isn’t looking for recognition or to win any popularity contests. But that’s what he deserves. He’s a perfect example of what happens when good people decide that ‘enough is enough’, see the poverty and the distress that exists in their local community and decide to do something about it.

It was 2012 when Alam, then aged 59 took it upon himself to cook for hungry Glaswegians and distribute food free of charge to those who had nothing. Now, nearly three years later the food is still prepared in Alam’s own home, just as before but the whole operation has grown significantly since those early days.

Now Alam’s venture has grown far beyond its humble beginnings. Local businesses regularly donate food and the poverty relief project has two fully staffed soup kitchens, one at the Glasgow Central Mosque and another on the city’s Cadogan Street, and a fleet of drivers who distribute around 100 food packs every week to homeless and poverty-stricken people throughout the city.

Apart from the 100 food packs already mentioned, Alam and his team also provide an additional 30 food packs per week to refugees and asylum seekers through the charity ‘Positive Action’. The team estimates that they’ve delivered around 20,000 food parcels free of charge since the first hot food found its way out of Alam’s kitchen and on to the plates of Glasgow’s most desperate citizens back in 2012.

From their base at the Glasgow Central Mosque the poverty relief project has also developed working links with the Glasgow Homeless Shelter and runs a successful sideline in collecting and distributing clothing, a much-needed service given the cold winter weather of Clydeside’s most famous city.

Don’t suffer – go to Suffa instead

Suffa Bolton weekly food delivery homeless and hostelWe have heard so much that is negative about Islam and about individual Muslims from Britain First’s propaganda machine that it’s easy to forget the real people behind the slander. Muslims, just like the members of every other human group vary. Some are nice and some are nasty. Some are criminal and some abide by the law. Some are extremists (like their Biffer counterparts) and some are exceptional in their kindness and in their humanity.

We recently learned about the Suffa project, a Muslim led organisation intended to help homeless people (‘Suffa’ is the Arabic word for ‘Shelter’). The inspiration for the project comes from the Islamic instruction to provide food for the hungry and shelter for the destitute.

In Suffa’s own words…

“Our intention is to seek the pleasure of Allah by acting upon the numerous teachings of the Qur’aan and sayings of His Messenger (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) that exhort the feeding of the poor and welfare of the destitute.”

The idea began in Birmingham during the month of Ramadan, the period of fasting in which Muslims are called upon to fast during daylight hours and use the money saved to help others. A group of Muslims began simply by walking around the W. Midlands city providing cups of tea, biscuits and some non-judgemental interaction to the rough-sleepers they encountered. That was in 2011. Since then Suffa has developed into a year-round project and it’s spreading to other British towns as well.

With bases in Birmingham, Walsall, Sheffield, Leicester, Coventry and Bolton the organisation provides thousands of meals to hungry, homeless people and it has plans to develop even further, eventually aiming to provide both financial assistance and training to help people get back on their feet again.

You can learn more about the Suffa project here.

Contact Suffa via their Birmingham branch here.

Beer 2So another week’s over and another week of seeing my takings suffer as the rest of the home nations nosedive out of the Rugby world cup. BT sports taking over of the Champions league is driving the punters away. The mixed pool team has won another game, much to the chagrin of Beryl who continues to put holes in everything other than the dartboard. I do hear the ladies tiddlywinks team may be short next week.

So what have we learnt from Biffer towers this week? Well they were triumphant in Burton, they still hate the thought of countries taking in immigrants, they love Putin, they adore the Knights Templar International (other real groups are out there) they’ve stayed strangely quiet over a massacre in Sweden and finally as remembrance day comes close they wheel out the old clickbait memes to con (sorry make) money out of their supporters.

Apparently Britain First’s brave 139 protesters were confronted by a few anti’s and bravely stood their ground. This however once again turned out to be a load of rubbish as Antifa, locals and Anti Biffers including most of the EBF office turned out to harass, heckle and generally have a good day out (see EBFBlogger here and here). Once again a huge police presence and shut shops proved what a waste of tax payers’ money and the costs of closing local businesses ensues when Folding and Dutchy come to town.

far right sweden school sword killer Anton Lundin PetterssonThe massacre in Sweden by a white, right wing terrorist and I mean terrorist not a misunderstood kid, not a loner, but a terrorist has led to near silence by the media, right wingers and politicians in this country. It appears to me that a nutter is a nutter whatever race or religion he or she may be. But while every Muslim man or woman is labelled a terrorist by the press or Biffer towers I have to counter that when this happens. I wasn’t the only one whose first thought when I heard the colour and politics of this boy was not Muslim was one of relief, when I should have been showing respect to those that had lost their lives. It must be working in the murky world of Anti Britain First that has made me do this.

But now on to the most important issue of the week (to me) and the outpouring of clickbait from Britain First and it’s offshoots including ones we are still checking on claiming to respect our troops, respect remembrance day, respect the poppy. So here we go, they are begging to get Folding elected, they are begging to stop their computers from being hacked, they are begging for court case costs and once again they are stealing money for their tatty products representing the poppy. And yes I did say stealing, because every penny they take goes into their bank account and is sent not to the armed forces but kept for whatever purpose Folding and Dutchy want to use it for (trip to Hungary, new tyres for their van or to hire a snooker hall for an hour). The unfortunate truth is any money raised does not go to respect our troops or to buy housing (something their memes tell us the refugees are getting) and Folding is still disrespecting our troops nearly 10 years since he wore pants on his head at the Cenotaph.

BF EBF Poppy shop charity con veteran RBL british legion scam

One of our page readers has challenged Golding to prove where the money has gone. To date nothing has been heard. Many of the good people of the page have been asking us if this page is real, is that page real and it’s got to the point where even we can’t be sure. I have recently had three people in my pub asking me to collect for remembrance day and each time I have said no, not because I don’t want to but since seeing the murky world of Britain First I will only have the Royal British Legion in and then for the rest of the year the Royal Air Force. Two of the three understood why I’m taking this stand, sighed and admitted that most of the pubs were taking this line too. The other got quite angry and insisted that I should allow his box on my bar. He left when I asked for his registered Charity number.

So to all you good souls who give money to respect and honour our troops please be careful where your pennies are going. I would advise sadly that you should only give money to the Royal British Legion this year and politely decline others. Give your reasons, the true ones will sigh and understand – only the shysters won’t.

This is a busy time for me at the moment. In a weeks time I will have completed my move to the South Coast, and my new pub will be halfway through the renovation. At least Beryl won’t be putting holes in the wall, Bazzer complaining about 3-5-2 or 4-2-3-1 and Gaz telling me every two minutes that the world is better under the conservatives will be a distant memory

Cheers

Homes for heroes by Kit

I’ve just sat down to watch DIY SOS – homes for veterans and I felt I had to blog about it.

This week focused on Lamin Manneh, originally from Gambia, who lost three limbs fighting for this country in Afghanistan. He was living in a home that wasn’t giving him and his family any quality of life. This shouldn’t happen in this country but it is a familiar story. All this family man wanted, was to be able to be a father to his children and to be able to get upstairs to read his children a bed time story. It really isn’t too much to ask is it?

What made this story unique and stand out the most was the irony of many people who look to blame foreigners for government failings. Some people seem to think that ‘helping foreigners’ has to be some sort of trade off in that if we help foreigners or refugees there are somehow more deserving or entitled people living in this country going without. It’s ridiculous.

Empty houses

DIY SOS showed that there are empty homes. There are around 600,000 homes in the UK that have been empty for more than 6 months. A chunk of those are in need of renovation but with investment, there needn’t be homeless ex forces and we could still help refugees without even needing to build more homes. It is not a trade off.

Lamin Manneh and his family are very inspirational and were about the most deserving of a decent family home that I have ever seen. When I hear people say that charity begins at home and we should help our own first I just want to put my head in my hands. It’s as if refugees are seen as a burden and are not capable of being productive members of our society. History has shown us that is not true so why have so many people forgotten?
