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!

Beer 2Well now the festivities are over and hangovers nursed in the Landlords household, the pirates seem to have finally buggered off, the hobnob cupboard in the office needs replenishing(hint) but at least the Blue Nun and the babysham was imbibed. I had 3 major resolutions to try and keep. The first – to be nice to trolls lasted 4 minutes. The second – not to get pissed off with the biffers lasted 2 and the last – to get decent coffee for the office lasted 8 hours.

So to the roundup of all things biffer from last week…

Well Goldibollocks graced us with his considerable presence, trying to look statesmanlike but failing miserably, informing his congregation that he was proud to be arrested. Paulie, proud you miserable cockwomble, of harassing a elderly woman in her home, proud of sticking two fingers up at the Queen by wearing a tatty green bin bag with her crown emblazoned on it, and proud of being leader of a fascist organisation.

Biffer central seem to be sending an endless amount of trolls over, who we tolerate to a degree, and love reading you lot ripping into them and the comedy value of your replies. Indeed we are currently discussing a new virtual award for troll hunting. It proves beyond any doubt that the powers that be over in Bifferland are worried about our continued presence, getting bigger by the day. Other anti groups also continue to grow as well so the people are out there, getting louder and getting to their leaders.

Floods, lots of them. Loads of damage to infrastructure and homes. People struggling under the deluge. But we saw something happening. Huge community spirit, help from Christians, from Sikh’s, Athiests, Muslims, refugees, giving up time, food and money for the victims, not caring who they are. What did Britain First do, with their 1.1 million disciples? They sent a meme out asking those who receive foreign aid to send £3. I think, Goldibollocks and Dutchy, you have fucked up badly on it.

Our picture of Syrian refugees was trolled relentlessly, it seems that most of the mainstream media and even the Washington Post isn’t enough proof for them. Well up yours Biffers! People in this country have long memories and when you have your drunken stroll through Dewsbury there will be a few good people of Hebden Bridge and other affected areas coming to join the ranks of the real British people opposing you.

And finally, instead of a conference the Biffers are going to have a weekend festival somewhere in Lincolnshire, complete with burger vans (halal?) and beer tent. And this brings me to my final resolution of this year, to harass and harry anything you do.

Have a meet up at a pub? Not if I can help it!

Your festival? Not if I can help it?

A march? I’m going to be there!

A meme? Yep you guessed it.

In fact, whatever you do I’m going to counter it with my fellow admins and my mates on the page.

Send your trolls in. We’ll counter them to shreds!

Try to discredit us. We’ll laugh and repudiate your claims!

We are Christian, Athiest, Muslim and agnostic. We are from a wide range of backgrounds with contacts in many places. And EBF is getting stronger from the people who send us in memes, links and information. Britain First may not have been involved in the floods but they will reap the deluge that’s coming their way.

Finally, may I wish all our mates on the page, and the trolls too, a very happy and prosperous new year.

Cheers,

Landlord
