Britain first’s radical creation

How many times has Britain first protested at Finsbury Park Mosque?

How many times has Britain first called for white non-Muslims to rise up and take action against the Muslim ‘invasion’?

How many times has Britain first told its followers that they’re in a civil war against Muslims?

How many white British people have been radicalised by Golding and Fransen?

How many British Muslims will be radicalised by atrocities such as the one perpetrated against innocent worshippers at Finsbury Park in the early hours of this morning?

Britain First isn’t just a profiteering organisation making money off the back of radicalised racists. It’s also one of Daesh’s most effective recruitment mechanisms.

EBF BF Dowson Holy War crusade comboTheresa May has pledged to clamp down on far right hate preachers. We suggest she starts with Fransen, Golding, Lomax and Lewis. We demand that the British government proscribe Britain First as a terrorist organisation and place all its ‘officers’ and activists on trial under the prevention of terrorism act.

We demand that this is done without delay. We further demand that hate preachers like Katie Hopkins, Nigel Farage, Paul Nuttall, Tommy (Yaxley-Lennon) Robinson also stand trial for inciting hate crimes against Muslims, refugees, immigrants and non-whites.

Come on Prime Minister – you’ve said you’re serious about prosecuting hate preachers. Now’s the time to get on and do it. Let’s not have yet another U-turn.

Golding’s a useful grass but at what price

EBF BF fight clubSomething has been concerning us in the EBF office for a while now. We and other groups have been calling for the government to proscribe Britain First for well over two years to no avail. Not that the government has to do what we tell them to but it does seem worryingly inconsistent.

Anjem Choudhary’s hate groups such as Muslims Against Crusades have all been proscribed and Choudhary himself is facing significant charges relating to incitement and encouraging terrorism.

Tommy Robinson has been hauled through the courts and imprisoned following a range of offences. There’s a strong reason to suspect that his far right activities were instrumental in bringing him to the attention of the law over crimes that he might otherwise have got away with. It all looks very similar to the way the US government finally caught Al Capone on a charge of tax evasion.

Every week we read about far right neo-nazis being sentenced for hate crimes ranging from verbal abuse to murder and arson, many of whom clearly were inspired by the rhetoric of Britain First. And yet Golding, Dowson and Fransen remain at large.

BF EBF UntouchablesGolding has had several complaints against him dropped. He has instigated the intimidation and targeting of countless innocent people and deliberately flouted the law relating to demonstrations. Yet all he has against his name is an injunction to stay away from a particular woman in Essex.

Britain First itself (and via its many offshoot sites) is clearly dodgy in its fundraising, especially when claiming to raise money for
charity and yet none of its officers have been called to account by the relevant authorities.

Britain First was three months late in submitting its accounts without censure. The British National Party (arguably a far less significant threat to the nation’s unity) has just been deregistered for exactly the same offence.

Jayda Fransen regularly posts evidence of herself harassing innocent Muslims (a form of personal trespass) and spouts lie after lie intended to discredit and victimise the entire Muslim population of UK. Yet she too is allowed to continue without any legal consequence.

Britain First was subject to an interim injunction, imposed upon them by the High Court with a clear instruction to return to court shortly afterwards. That injunction, together with its conditions and subsequent hearing was allowed to lapse without further action.

So we have to ask ourselves why.

We don’t care if Golding and Fransen grassed up the EDL leadership and did a deal with the Home Office to save their own skins.

EBF BF Jayda Fransen eliteWe don’t care if Uncle Jim has granted Special Branch access to BF’s records so that they can keep an eye on the far-right scumbags who’ve been stupid enough to join up.

We’re not interested in the advantage to the Home Office of access to ‘secret’ groups of fascists thanks to BF infiltration and reporting.

We care that BF continues to incite hatred and that this is a major problem for UK regardless of how much they help the Police. When innocent Muslims are beaten to death by Biffers because of Fransen and Golding’s incitement the price of that information is too high.

So we ask again. No – we demand that the British government…

Proscribe Britain First

Bracelets of Division

juden yellow star nazi jewBeginning in Poland on November 23rd 1939, Nazi occupiers forced Jewish citizens to wear distinctive yellow stars on their clothing. The purpose of the ‘badge of shame’ as it was known was to ensure quick and easy identification of Jews at all times. It was, as security chief for France and Belgium, Helmut Knochen later stated “another step on the road to the final solution”. That final solution ultimately brought about the murderous slaughter of 6 million Jews throughout occupied Europe.

It seems unthinkable that such a policy could be repeated anywhere in Europe today. The very idea of forcing people to wear symbols that mark them out seems totally alien in our post WW2 world. And yet…

Earlier this week we were treated to what appears to be a non-story about red doors in Middlesbrough. The original claim by The Times was that red front doors were being used as a sort of ‘coded signal’ to isolate and publicise the whereabouts of refugees so that far right thugs could target them more easily. It didn’t take long for the Home Office to comment and soon the whole thing was the hot topic of the hour.

EBF didn’t say much about it at the time because there was nothing in the reports to tell us how many non-immigrant houses also had red doors. That lack of detail made us suspicious and so we waited to see how the story would develop. Unlike Britain First we actually prefer to report on true situations rather than made up ones. As it stands, one week on it’s still not clear but there is a strong argument that no such discrimination has occurred. We’ll wait and see. It might be true, it might be false.

red bracelet asylum seekers refugees discriminationWhatever the truth about the red doors scandal though there is another story that has much more of a ring of truth to it. That’s not unusual. One media story, whether accurate or not, can prompt people to go to the press with similair tales that really are accurate. This seems to be the case with the second ‘yellow star’ story of the week.

OK, it’s not actually a yellow star – it’s a brightly coloured wristband but the point is the same. According to The Guardian, refugees and Asylum seekers in Cardiff are being forced to wear distinctive wrist bands that identify them to the public. The wrist bands, once removed cannot be replaced and without them the refugees don’t get to eat. That looks pretty coercive to us.

It’s also a lot more plausible, not least because the company in charge of the situation, Clearsprings ready homes, a contractor for the Home Office has admitted to the practice and tried to rationalise it. The original ‘red door’ story was denied – this one wasn’t.
The rationalisation for this practice, so reminiscent of yellow stars in singling out a particular demographic is to do with administration of food. But there must be less discriminatory ways. We’ve been doing the same thing in schools with tickets and other tokens for decades. It’s not hard. Britain’s hostels and food banks seem able to manage to identify and feed people without making them wear badges or wristbands and we’re sure that other methods wouldn’t be entirely beyond the company with the Home Office contract for accommodating refugees and asylum seekers. So what gives?

Theresa May Home Secretary office governmentTwo Home Office contractors are accused of divisive discrimination in the same week. One admits it, the other may or may not be guilty. We have to wonder what is going on in Whitehall when taxpayers’ money is used in such a discriminatory way by people employed by the state and presumably then bound by European human rights laws to avoid discrimination.

We look forward to hearing how this matter has been rectified very soon. This isn’t 1939 and we’re not living in a Nazi state – at least not yet!
