Well well well…..Facebook have finally seen sense and banned the biffers page from their social media platform, following twitter.

FB ban BF poll

But hold on a mo, the admins here at EBF are already debating whether to buy expensive champagne or a fiver special from Aldi. Are we out of work, or is this just the beginning of the beginning of the end.

As Screechy and Goldibollocks languish in their Victorian cells (their words not mine) the rudderless fascist ship races towards oblivion. The days of Lewis, Lomax, Carmelo, Besser and Slattery a now distant past and Councillor Bigot and the new gormless ones led by chief mousketeer Andy Edge, (who soon could also be serving time in a rotting jail) trying desperately to keep their magic money tree up. It appears Facebook are dealing a coup de grace to this vile, hate-filled bigoted group as it appears their only money grabbing platform is Facebook.

A new page is already up, Facebook have said they will remove but before they do it appears we can all comment on it. Three years of pent up hate from me will be unleashed when the kids go to bed.

But is it really over? Are we finally seeing the death throes of Britain First? Are we, the admins finally going to get back to concentrating on work, families and having a proper social life? Are we able now to become husbands, wives, mothers and fathers? Well… No. Screechy and Goldibollocks are still about, 36 and 18 weeks ain’t a lot of time. We were hoping years banged up but they aren’t.

So EBF continues until they’ve gone, either fucking off to Fascist enclaves in the Europe they hate or jailed for such a long time they become irrelevant. We’ll still, with your help, chase them, laugh at them and expose them until they decide they’ve conned enough money to fuck off for good.

But for now the ice machine is open the cheap Cava is opened and a celebratory sip is in order. The final push is on!

Cheers

Mair and the media

Tommy Mair Westminster magistrates courtRecent events have brought Britain First into the media spotlight and not in a good way. Tommy Mair shouting “Britain First!” and then spluttering on about death to traitors in court has brought the Biffers and their murderous intentions into the public eye in a way that we at EBF could only have dreamed of. We’re grateful to those national papers who have begun to see them for what they really are.

So it seems ungrateful to ask more of a media that has already done so much but there’s a very real danger here that the real point will be missed.

Yes, it’s true that Britain First have no real membership to speak of. It’s true that their extremist views are not shared openly by much of the British population. But that’s not the whole story.

Even allowing for bought likes and page merging-scams their page does have a significant number of genuine likes. That means that their reach across social media is huge and even though not many people would call themselves neo-Nazis many are taken in by the general tone of their rhetoric. So we’d like to ask two things of mainstream media…

When you report on the joke that is Britain First please also point out the dangers of their evil messages spreading relentlessly across social media. They really do have an influence. That’s why hate crime is on the rise. That’s why our society is becoming ever more intolerant. Britain First isn’t the only group spreading this filth but it is probably the most effective.

Please don’t forget about these neoNazi malcontents when the next story breaks. They aren’t going to stop their relentless assault upon the peace of our nation so please, don’t you let up either. We’ll happily let you know as major stories start to break if you inbox us with a contact. You can message us via our Facebook page or Email the EBF blog at exposingbf@hotmail.com

Who knows – you might get a scoop (do journalists still use that word?).

Now you know what Britain First is capable of, please help us to keep the pressure on. They’re far more dangerous than they first appear.

Thankyou.

Team EBF

 

Biffers with banners are a right bloody nuisance

If ever we needed proof that the Biffers read our blog this is it. Recently we published a piece about Fransen’s cold feet and how Moley had revealed her lack of confidence was putting her pending Fuhrership at risk. Today she seems to have regained her courage and, significantly without Paulie.

In a surprise move she was part of a brace of Biffers who descended on Whitechapel to protest outside the local mosque. Quite why they chose Whitechapel is a little mysterious. It’s hardly a massive structure and the area isn’t known for its racial tensions. Admittedly it has some history but this is hardly Jack the Ripper territory any more.

http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/far-right-britain-first-protesters-stage-hapless-protest-in-the-rain-outside-east-london-mosque-a3192786.html

Apparently the Biffers stayed outside the mosque, blocking its entrance with their ridiculous banner for a full 20 minutes today before buggering off back into the sewer. As usual they remained just long enough to get some publicity shots and pretend they were actually doing something useful. In reality the whole thing was just another photo opportunity for Frau Fransen. It’s amazing that anyone still falls for this rubbish but somebody must or they wouldn’t keep doing it.

This comes hot on the heels of an IBTimes news article that looks for the most part like a Fransen press release, bigging up the Biffers and trying desperately to sanitise their thugishness. The article did make it very clear that BF don’t just go after extremists but all Muslims.

BF Luton webcam backfire ibtimes article.png

That’s strange. They told the BBC a very different story – not that anyone actually believed them.

The truth is that these people demonise all Muslims because like all neo-nazi groups they need someone to scapegoat. It didn’t need to be Muslims, it could’ve been any minority, but Muslims were topical so they took the fall.

And having chosen Muslims the Biffers really are going for it. But they’re getting more and more desperate. Police forces across the country are making it clear that they’ve had enough. The courts have stopped giving them friendly slaps on the wrist and are very clearly gearing up to hit them hard and their ground support is fading away much more rapidly than it came. That’s why they’ve gone back to direct action at Mosques – a tactic they declared didn’t work less than 12 months ago. They need the attention. Unfortunately for them though, most people stopped caring about their displays of desperation long ago.
Three lonely Biffers, all of whom are familiar faces from demos across the UK reveal a very depressing picture for Britain First. They may be able to buy likes and even comments from overseas. They might do OK with clickbait memes of sick puppies and cute kittens but Facebook isn’t the real world. If they can’t convert their army of keyboard warriors into actual support they lose. And they can’t. So they’ve lost.

We don’t know if this renewed show of bravado will get Dutchy restored in Dowson’s good books. We don’t know if she’ll inherit the Biffer crown this summer – she may have shot herself in the foot already with her recent show of nerves. We do know that whoever sails the Bad Ship Britain First into the sunset half of 2016 will be captain of a near-empty and very leaky vessel. It’s already running with a skeleton crew, and the few passengers that remain seem to be firmly locked in their ‘keyboard’ cabins.

The Biffers are doomed, and those heavy fleeces will make very poor life jackets

A sad farewell

Team EBF is a little thinner on the ground today than we were this time last week. Being part of a group like EBF can be stressful and sometimes differences arise that just can’t be resolved. It’s nobody’s fault – it just happens.

I’m stalling because I really don’t want to type the next few lines but I think I must. So here goes….

Hulk and Tank Girl have come to the decision that they must leave the group. That doesn’t mean they’re no longer going to involve themselves in fighting the fash – they’re far too dedicated and committed as individuals for that.

Hulk and tank girl smash the fash FB page.png

Those of us who remain are genuinely sorry to see them go. Tank Girl was a relative newcomer to our ranks but she most certainly proved her worth and her contributions to EBF were invaluable. She was (and is) a fine friend to the page. Hulk has been with us rather longer and I don’t think I need to point out to our many followers just how invaluable he was. There aren’t too many Hulk-sized admins kicking around for us to approach.

The good news is that Hulk and Tank Girl have made it clear that they intend to continue their work, just in a different context. You can follow their new venture on Facebook here. They’re only a click away! We urge you to support them. It’s not easy getting a new page off the ground and if they can retain the support they helped to build here at EBF that’d be great. We’re all still on the same side and we really wish them well.

Thankyou Hulk and Tank Girl…

We wish you well.

A message from Moley

Here at EBF we’re dedicated to exposing the nefarious antics of Britain first and the rest of the far right. That has brought us to the attention of some particularly nasty individuals who’ve been trying without success to identify team members, presumably with the intent of visiting us for a violent altercation. That’s just how these people operate.

Fortunately they haven’t managed although they’ve certainly tried. There have even been a few cases of mistaken identity and some innocent people have found themselves under fire from fash in the past. We’re genuinely sorry about that.

Anyway, our mole in the Biffer camp tells us that they’re trying a new tactic. Apparently the Exposing Britain First Facebook page is about to be mass reported in an attempt to get the page removed by Facebook. It’s possible that they’ll manage, if only temporarily but we will be back.

Something to crow about!

Britain First never seems to lack something to crow about. If they’re not complaining about how badly they’re treated (and begging for money to support their persecuted martyrdom) they’re shouting about how great they are (and begging for money to support their greatness). Sometimes they combine the two and complain about how persecuted they are in spite of their greatness (and beg for money to support their persecuted greatness). Biffer Fuhrer, Folding Golding’s New Year message to his imaginary British Reich combined all of the above and more. You can watch his hilarious attempt to be taken seriously (along with the EBF commentary) here.

For me though, the most hilarious of all the festive season’s offerings was this little gem which appeared on the Biffer website a little while ago. This collection of craziness, this wonderful, web-based wittering of weasel words falls into the ‘see how great we are’ camp – except they’re not great at all. In attempting to prove how ever-so-influential they are Britain First has proven beyond all reasonable doubt their own political insignificance. In short this is what they said…

We’re great because..

We have lots of overseas likes, click bait likes, sock-puppets and paid for popularity.

We don’t get a look in when it comes to the real world but…

Online we only really make an impact on Facebook because that’s the only social media platform that lets us silence dissenters and fake our popularity by paying Asian click-farms.But if we don’t count platforms where people aren’t easy to silence we look like we’re doing well.

So we won’t count any platform except Facebook.

We especially won’t count Twitter where we always get trounced by people we can’t silence. Anyway Paulie got banned off Twitter for being a racist bully so we definitely don’t want anything to do with them. They’re too hard to control.

Look how popular we seem now.

Impressive isn’t it?

Beer 2Christmas parties for landlords are strange affairs, all arguing who has the cheapest pint, the best ales or the most weird cash and carry vodka,
but this week it’s all been about the airstrikes in Syria, the possible hike in taxes on alcohol, whether scampi fries, cheesy moments and bacon snaps have a sell by date, Pork Scratchings or Twiglets and Britain Bloody First. The other problem with them is they last over 3 days and you can only take Ibuprofen every 4 hours.

The airstrikes that our government is carrying out in our name is a bone of contention to EBF followers as well as the admins. We ummed and arred long enough over whether to cover this on the page, but knowing that the horrible buggers over at Bifferland will be relishing in it we decided to cover it. My opinion will remain just that although I’m far from happy with my own MP.

Knowing my fellow Landlords all have a hatred of racist bigots and extremists quite a lot gets talked about in our get togethers (or piss ups as the Landlady likes to call them) about the Biffers and their even more intolerant cohorts the EDL. David has owned a pub just on the outskirts of Rotherham and has had many a visit from the Taliban Hunters Club. He gives them no quarter nor serve them or take any notice of their threats all nicely recorded for the police.

This week we had two hours in which we weren’t sure whether to crack open the champagne or the Cava, the Prosecco or the whisky as the Biffers appeared to be consigned to the dustbin. Meme’s were made, laughter floated around the office until a couple of my fellow admins realised nothing added up. Then the begging Email came out asking patriots to dig deep to take on Facebook. Then a miracle happened.

Facebook, scared of impending legal action from Britain First put the page back up. It must have been that, surely the Biffers don’t lie.

A lovely apology from a name at Facebook and all is well. Were they banned or did they unpublish to allow them to again look like victors in the face of indescribable odds, making Goldibollocks, Dutchy and Dowson out to be heroes. Again like so many cons of theirs… answers on a postcard (but do not put our name on it).

Before that there was a strategy meeting, in an office of all places along with whiteboard coffee and little biscuits (or pies in Stevie’s case). Was this another case of “look lads (and Slatter) it looks like all these nasty lefteyes have got a lot of crap on us and it’s starting to stick. That Exposing lot have declared war on us so we need to ramp up getting cash so we can get out of this with some dosh” and lo and behold another begging letter came out asking for more cash. This time to buy a gym so his activists can train in unarmed combat.

Now Folding is a failed MMA fighter (look it up on youtube but make sure you are near the toilet) and in the video they put up he did look quite good beating up a punchbag. But this is starting to get a little bit sinister. Once again, one of the people who run the gym asked them to take the video’s down saying that they didn’t want to be associated with the Biffers, as I write this the video is still up.

Also this week all pretence of the Knight Templars (other real groups are out there that are genuine and not money making) and the Biffers being seperate entities has all but disappeared. Is this  uncle Jim finally coming out and aligning KTI with them or was it always just another clever way of conning money out of scared, impressionable people.

A great article was put up by us from Tell Mama, regarding the possible recruiting and brainwashing of impressionable youngsters for right wing extremist groups. It is quite amazing. They argue about the radicalisation of muslim children when the far right are doing the same. We are against it all, right, left, religions or athiests forcing their dogma on young kids who should be mucking about in parks or on the Xbox.

Before I give up and slip further into my drinking shorts, David, the landlord from Rotherham, told me that why he hates Britain First with a vengeance. He was enjoying a pint after work with his mate from the Indian Restaurant up the road and a bloke walked in with a tatty green bin liner on. He was asking for money, he said, to help his battalion stop a newsagents being turned into an islamic meeting room. He said there were too many of this kind of thing springing up and that this was a christian country and all the other religions should go home.

Dave’s mate (a hindu) got up and told this person to fuck off and the guy walked off only to return with 6 mates all dressed alike. The biffers then starting hassling drinkers and staff. They said they would continue coming back until they got an apology from Dave. Unfortunately for them they had walked into a pub where shit is not taken. They were frogmarched to the door, thrown out and told not to come back and if they did there would be serious trouble. Since then he recieved nuisance calls, excrement on his doorway and visits from the police (Dave is an ex copper so that didn’t work). Dave isn’t giving up, in his own words these people are…

“Nothing but cowards, thugs people who pick on the weak, or those unable to fight back.”

He does fight back, as he tells me, watch this space.

So as I leave to get (yet) another pint I think it sums it up very well, Britain First, cowards, thugs and bigots. Facebook would be well rid of them. But the fight goes on to rid us of these conmen, these liars and cheats. EBF will continue to do so.

Time for some out of date Scampi fries, see if they really do stay edible for ages.

Cheers

Landlord
