A view from a barstool #47 by Landlord

So here we go, some crappy important sounding music, a picture of somewhere news gets done, some smug idiot standing around shuffling papers……bugger this, it ain’t working, but anyway here is the EBF news, we would have done it on one of those crappy apps that the biffers use but the company involved wouldn’t take a packet of hobnobs and a half eaten Curly Wurly as payment, I told Foxy to throw in a Tassimo Latte thingy but hey here we go.

bf ebf jayda fransen paul golding arrested ramsgate court case may 2017.png

Anyway here is my take on the one story this week, the arrest of Goldibollocks and Screechy for inciting religious hatred. I’ve read their press release did some digging and done a biffer bullshit to EBF translation. Another begging email has gone out, after all it is coming close to the summer holiday needing to be paid for, anyway I digress….

Now the background from what I’ve seen. Screechy has been running around Ramsgate with her crew videoing her outside various premises where alleged rapists have been working or living and basically fucking up a police and CPS investigation that has landed the alleged perpetrators in court. It’s almost as if they saw what their new bestie Tommy was doing and decided we need to do some of that. Unfortunately (when I say unfortunately I actually mean hahahahahahaha) that didn’t turn out too well for Tommy either who was also nicked. Now for those trolls coming over for a visit we at EBF condemn those that break the law especially paedophiles and rapists, we just don’t judge them on the colour of their skin or the god they choose to follow. But anyway back to the translation.

Biffer release (BFR) We have to be very vague, as we are told Kent police have slapped some extreme bail conditions on them both which limits what they can say.

Landlord translation (LT) We’ve fucked up big time, we hoped that in this post brexit Britain a bit of incitement wouldn’t be noticed and we need to make it sound good to get some dosh out of you

BFR The police swooped on Paul and Jayda while they were driving by blocking the road and surrounding them with police vans.

LT We was having a lovely non Halal Curry with a nice British cup of tea and two coppers knocked on our door asking us to accompany them to the station. But that doesn’t sound good on the begging letters

BFR The raid included both uniformed and plain clothes CID officers.

LT Geoff from down the Dog and Duck was walking along the road but he was in civvies but we’ll count him as plainclothes as it sounds better on the begging letter

BFR It was a military style ambush that was executed with precision.

LT They knocked loudly and called me sir, and doesn’t it sound good on the begging letter

In all seriousness though what thorough cockwombles Goldibollocks and Screechy are. Along with Tommy and his camera buddy they were breaking the law of the land. They could now have put in jeopardy the trial of some men who may or may not have committed a disgusting offence and allowed them to be free to attack more young women. Goldibollocks and Screechy are a disgrace, this was done to incite their sheep to maintain their Islamaphobia, to fan the flames of hatred and to try and make money. It was made worse when someone took to Facebook to ask them to take one of their inciting videos down because they had the wrong address but no, they didn’t comply.

So both of them, as well as hopefully some of the other High Command are going to be prosecuted or at least we hope they are, but G&S you are, in this country, innocent until proven guilty. You don’t need vigilante cuntspangles camping outside your gaff spouting bollocks.

Final bit
BFR Will you chip in to help them fight this latest round of politically motivated persecution?

LT Pahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaa

Toodlepip

​Fransen on trial: What a stitch up!

Jayda Fransen, Deputy leader of the neoNazi hate group, Britain First is due in court tomorrow. We already described the charges in an earlier post (here) & won’t waste time repeating ourselves. Rather we want to highlight just what an appalling stitch-up this really is.
Don’t get us wrong… we don’t disagree with the fact that the charges have been brought. Nor do we think they’re particularly unfair. It’s not the judiciary that’s stitched up poor old Jayda. It’s Paul Golding himself.

It’s no secret that Uncle Jim favours Jayda. It’s no secret that he’s had her fronting his Eastern European fascist enterprise, especially in Hungary (so much for ‘Britain’ first). It’s no secret either that Golding has grown increasingly jealous of his erstwhile sidekick’s place of honour and profit beside ‘Generous Jim’. It’s no surprise that, driven to distraction by the little green-eyed God of envy he’s found a way to rid himself of this turbulent high priestess of the fash.

First he encouraged Jayda to lead the on street abuse of Muslims, no doubt persuading her of the dramatic effect of a vulnerable woman squaring up to ‘the enemy’.

Then he encouraged her to publicly tear up her bail conditions – bail conditions that he, himself continued to obey. The charge of Fransen failing to answer bail seems to be ‘open and shut’.

Next he pleaded guilty to his own charge of political uniform, thus ‘playing a blinder’ of a stitch-up which almost guarantees Jayda will be found guilty of the same offence.

Finally, by repeatedly publishing video evidence of Jayda harassing Luton’s Muslims Golding has made it almost impossible for her to be found not guilty. Indeed Britain First continued to post this evidence even after Fransen received her summons.

The result of this stitch-up is likely to be two convictions in the magistrates court and a referral to Crown court in respect of the third, more serious charge of religiously motivated harassment. Since this charge carries the possibility of serious prison time and since Fransen cannot be relied upon to observe bail conditions there’s a good chance she’ll be remanded in custody until her case is heard at Crown court.

If we’re lucky she’ll get a custodial sentence too.

That’ll teach her to usurp the Fuhrer.

What a stitch-up.

It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving Nazi!

View from a barstool in the cellar

Beer 2The landlady and the kids are with the in-laws and I’m left here drinking the profits and suffering from a dose of fash fatigue. Being an admin on Exposing Britain First and the constant cases of islamophobic bullshit from the Fuhrer bunker does get us down. The bombs in Belgium are hard to stomach with wall to wall media coverage, security experts telling us what is happening even though it’s just conjecture and the arses in Bifferland lapping it up and providing the propaganda they need to play on the fears of already scared people. The right wing newspapers and our wonderful TV news stations helping them with their recruitment.

But where was the right wing and media angst as bombs were set off in Iraq, in Turkey and other places in Africa and the world. Did you even hear of these as I certainly didn’t, I didn’t see an outpouring of grief on Facebook, didn’t see people changing their profiles to a Turkish flag or an Iraqi one or any other to be honest. The right have even gone as far as to put the disgusting murders in Belgium as a reason for Brexit. Just like the Muslims we have had to put out the same old tired statement of us abhorring the bombings and saying that Daesh are a bunch of murderous bastards whom we are against. My brother works and lives in Brussels, and his workplace is near enough opposite to the station that was bombed. The overwhelming mantra coming from his fellow staff, from many different European nations, is that this was not a Muslim attack but a Daesh one.

BF Pieman Steve Lewis arrestedWith that out of the way (but not forgotten) back to the Fuhrer and his high command. Steve Lewis arrested and bailed for wearing a political uniform had us in stitches. Poor old Pieman, losing a banner last year, being moved down the pecking order in the shittrooper numbers, having to do the seemingly dodgy accounts on a 60’s typewriter and leader of the South East Brigade and now nicked. Steve is one of the more articulate Biffers but even he has slowly been indoctrinated into Bifferdom and writes more and more religious claptrap. We know he reads the page so Steve, hope you enjoyed the 16 hours in the cells. We hope you will be trusted enough to hold the banners again.

What else? Oh yeah, the mayoral election, begging letters, and some religious memes for the sheeple to eat up.

Goldibollocks is on the march going round trying to find 10 idiots in each borough of London to back him, even tweeting because Enfield Council had the audacity of making him hold on the phone, assumingly to get hold of the voters roll. Three of my friends who live in the London Mayoral area have asked that the Biffers do not get their names and addresses as they do not wish to have racist literature through their doors and also they feel that the Fuhrer bunker will use this for more sinister means. I’ll give an update shortly on how they got on.

So it appears that Goldibollocks and Screechy made their target to stand in the elections. They still accuse the Labour candidate of being an extremist Muslim and that London is no longer British. The great thing about this is that London is such a diverse, multi-cultural, thriving capital that will consign them to where my mates will put their propaganda, in the bin.

BF Sadiq Khan.png

If you read the Biffer page, I realise that this is hard for you, you will have seen the furore and foam-fest of the sheeple over the apparent removal of the word ‘Easter’ on Cadbury’s Easter oval things. Apparently this was to appease Muslims who quite frankly couldn’t give a toss about it. They have more important things to worry about (islamaphobia, being chucked off planes, securing mosques from right wing fucknuggets). The Daily Star had a front page spread about it and the Biffers were not amused. However a quick phonecall to Cadbury’s and a totally harassed customer services lady told me that this was the biggest load of crap she had ever seen. They may have taken off the word Easter from the front of the packaging but the word appears 4 times in various places.

Easter eggs Cadbury 2016.png

Coming so soon after the hot cross buns and Kingsmill saga’s it seems that once again Bifferland is foaming over a headline and not the story.

So that’s the week in a nutshell, just an ordinary week in the world of EBF, from bombs to Easter eggs, you couldn’t make it up… Could you?

Cheers

A view from a barstool #5

Evening all, I hope you are all well out there in Exposing Britain First world. Apologies for the lack of a blog last week but I was in the middle of a move from the Shires to the south coast of our fair Isle and as I write this in my office I have had time to look back at the week in bifferstan with more than just a shake of the head. It is a time when we have to remember those that gave their lives in service of our country whether they be British, from the commonwealth or those countries that were overrun by the fascists. This is their time and we should never let that be taken by the far right in whatever guise they may appear, wrapped up in fake patriotism.

So what have I seen from the pages of BF? A soldiers death has been taken by them and used as click bait to attempt to extend their dwindling report. I’m not naming him, nor will I put a picture up of him, only for the reason that his family have requested he won’t be used as a figurehead for something he wouldn’t have touched with a bargepole. If anyone wants to show respect, type his name in Google and add foundation. Follow and give money if you wish but please don’t let the biffers disrespect this young man.

BF conference Chesterfield ban booking cancelSomething close to my heart just happened today, a Borough Council cancelled a booking from the biffers and if it was the way I heard then Chesterfield BC has possibly made sure the Biffers are unable to book another licensed property. Under the licensing act of 2003 (amended March 2015) a licensee is forbidden to allow a gathering of racists, indeed the premesis license to which all personal License holders are held to prohibit this:
11.27 There is certain criminal activity that may arise in connection with licensed premises which
should be treated particularly seriously. These are the use of the licensed premises:
• for the sale and distribution of drugs controlled under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and
the laundering of the proceeds of drugs crime;
• for the sale and distribution of illegal firearms;
• for the evasion of copyright in respect of pirated or unlicensed films and music, which
does considerable damage to the industries affected;
• for prostitution or the sale of unlawful pornography;
• by organised groups of paedophiles to groom children;
• as the base for the organisation of criminal activity, particularly by gangs;
• for the organisation of racist activity or the promotion of racist attacks;
• for knowingly employing a person who is unlawfully in the UK or who cannot lawfully be
employed as a result of a condition on that person’s leave to enter;
• for unlawful gambling; and
• for the sale or storage of smuggled tobacco and alcohol.
And following this part 11.28 of the licensing act goes onto say
It is envisaged that licensing authorities, the police and other law enforcement agencies,
which are responsible authorities, will use the review procedures effectively to deter such
activities and crime. Where reviews arise and the licensing authority determines that
the crime prevention objective is being undermined through the premises being used to
further crimes, it is expected that revocation of the licence – even in the first instance –
should be seriously considered.

So this is one of the very reasons that Chesterfield BC would not want Britain First at one of their venues.
So that’s it, take them to court, look like fuckwits, I would guess that there maybe argument over a legal definition of racism but we know.

Well I’ve now been instructed it’s time to do the curtains in all of our rooms, I can’t even get out of it by working. Just remember take pride in whatever you may do this weekend, if you wear a poppy don’t think you are a biffer, you are just someone who pays their respect.

Cheers

More stuff and nonsense about Creeping Sharia

BF ShariaBritain First are at it again. Upstanding citizens like Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen, apparently tired of their High Court appearances and the seemingly endless injunctions and Section 12 notices served against them have decided to become all law-abiding instead. That’ll make a nice change.

In keeping with their new-found respect for existing British law they’ve rekindled one of their old hatreds. They learned to rant about this particular emotive cash cow during their EDL days when fears about ‘creeping Sharia’ were as rife amongst the legislatively illiterate as they evidently are today. We’re sure it’s still good for a few quid and Golding and Fransen will certainly be happy to fleece their supporters for a bit more cash by pretending to defend this nation’s law against the invading Moose Limbs. There’s just one problem – it’s all bollocks.

What we’ve come to know as Sharia ‘courts’ are in reality nothing more than religious arbitration councils. This country operates a range of arbitration services which, with the consent of all involved can acquire a legally binding status in exactly the same way that other forms of contract have binding status.

EBF BF Sharia factcheck 1

They’re no different from organisations like ACAS or industrial tribunals in that respect. They don’t deal with matters of criminal law (because criminal cases are about affronts to the state). They only deal with civil matters and they do so with consent. Not that Britain First’s followers are interested in such trivial details…

BF Sharia comments criminal

We read in the same fact-checking article…

“Law versus reality

The last government has said that it doesn’t think that changes are needed to mediation or arbitration, or to regulate Sharia councils. From a purely legal perspective, the courts have the powers they need to protect people from coercion and unequal treatment.”

https://fullfact.org/law/uk_sharia_courts-39429

The Biffers have their own ideas though…

BF Sharia comments felony

We agree. Operating an illegal court would be a felony. However…

Religious arbitration is perfectly legal here in UK, just like any other form of arbitration. Not that the Biffers have noticed…

BF Sharia comments illegal

There are concerns that religious courts, including Sharia courts may be coercive.

“But campaigners like Baroness Cox reply that whatever about the strict legal position, “the power of Sharia councils lies in how they are perceived by their communities”

https://fullfact.org/law/uk_sharia_courts-39429

That seems a legitimate enough issue to us. But it doesn’t mean that Sharia should be singled out for special hatred whilst their Jewish and Christian counterparts are ignored – unless of course there’s some sort of anti-Islamic bias motivating Golding and Fransen. Surely not!

Some of the Biffers still seem to think that the British legal system is based upon Christianity.

BF Sharia comments Christian based law

The law is very clear but for the hard of understanding one of the country’s senior Law Lords, Lord Justice Mumby laid it out as follows…

“However, it is important to realise that reliance upon religious belief, however conscientious the belief and however ancient and respectable the religion, can never of itself immunise the believer from the reach of the secular law. And invocation of religious belief does not necessarily provide a defence to what is otherwise a valid claim.”

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/andrewbrown/2011/feb/28/christianity-gay-rights-english-law

Christian Barrister, Paul Diamond agreed, possibly (but not necessarily) through gritted teeth…

“Some cultural beliefs and practices are simply treated by the law as being beyond the pale. Some manifestations of religious practice will be regulated if contrary to a child’s welfare. One example is the belief that the infliction of corporal punishment is an integral part of the teaching and education of children and is efficacious … And some aspects of mainstream religious belief may even fall foul of public policy. A recent striking example is Westminster City Council v C and others [2008] EWCA Civ 198, [2009] Fam 11, where the Court of Appeal held on grounds of public policy that a ‘marriage’ valid under both Sharia law and the lex loci celebrationis despite the manifest incapacity of one of the parties was not entitled to recognition in English law”

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/andrewbrown/2011/feb/28/christianity-gay-rights-english-law

Even the Former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey of Clifton has weighed in on the side of common sense …

“The individual conscience is free to accept such dictated law, but the State, if its people are to be free, has the burdensome duty of thinking for itself.”

“So it is that the law must firmly safeguard the right to hold and express religious beliefs. Equally firmly, it must eschew any protection of such a belief’s content in the name only of its religious credentials. Both principles are necessary conditions of a free and rational regime.”

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/andrewbrown/2011/feb/28/christianity-gay-rights-english-law

The foam fest continues unabated over at Biffer towers.

BF Sharia comments illegal in UK

One Biffer has identified a solution though…

BF Sharia comments problem solved

Phew! We’re glad that’s sorted out!

Sharia courts are not only legal in the UK, they are also subject to the law and have no place in the administration of criminal matters. Criminal matters like inciting violence or stirring up religious hatred for example.

BF Sharia comments maggotts filth

To put it another way – they cannot mete out the kinds of punishments regularly claimed by the likes of Golding and Fransen. They only have a role at all in civil cases where both parties actively choose and agree to pursue the Sharia route. If even a single participant refuses to abide by the Sharia ‘court’ the case automatically moves on to the civil courts or some other form of arbitration. We might almost forgive Golding for his lack of legal understanding but Fransen, who claims to have a law degree really should understand this basic (and obvious) fact. Perhaps she’d be kind enough to put some of her followers straight.

BF Sharia comments no other religion does this

Erm…

The legal basis of British Sharia courts is no different from that of their British Christian and British Jewish counterparts.

EBF Beth Din law Jewish court

Much the same can be said for Christian ‘courts’ which also operate within UK and have done for centuries alongside both their Jewish and Islamic equivalents. In each case, criminal matters are referred to the secular courts because, as we reported above, no British religious tribunal has any jurisdiction in criminal matters.

The Assemblies of God (AOG) operates its own Christian arbitration ‘courts’ too – and it does so along very similair lines. Perhaps someone should tell the vociferous (and extremely silly) biffer who left this next comment.

BF Sharia comments Christian law

Perhaps we’re being a little too hard on poor old Kipmutai though. The real blame lies with Fransen and Golding who continue to mislead their followers, presumably as a result of the Dynamic Duo’s remarkably inadequate legal awareness.

The following describes how the AOG ‘courts’ operate (albeit taken from an American branch of the AOG ‘family’)…

http://www.gate-way-fellowship.com/about-us/bylaws/article-xiv-arbitration-of-disputes.html

“Inasmuch as the Scriptures require Christians to take their disputes to the saints and not to the civil courts (1 Corinthians 6:1-8), all disputes which may arise (1) between any member of this church and the church itself, or (2) between any member of this church and any pastor, officer, director, employee, volunteer, or other worker of this church, shall be resolved by binding arbitration if efforts to mediate or conciliate the dispute have failed…

All arbitrators must be born-again, Spirit-filled believers who are members of an Assemblies of God church…

The arbitrators may hear and determine the controversy upon the evidence produced notwithstanding the failure of a party duly notified to appear. The parties are entitled to be heard, to present evidence material to the controversy, and to cross-examine witnesses appearing at the hearing. The hearing shall be conducted by all the arbitrators, but a majority of them may determine any question and render a final award…

The arbitrators may in their absolute discretion admit as evidence any affidavit or declaration concerning the matters in dispute, a copy thereof having been given at least 5 days previously to the party against whom the same is offered, but the person whose evidence is so taken shall be subject to cross-examination by such party. The arbitrators shall have the power to order and direct what they shall deem necessary to be done by either of the parties relating to the matters in dispute. Cost of the arbitration shall be determined and assessed by the arbitrators…

The decision of the arbitrators shall be binding on both parties, and both parties submit themselves to the personal jurisdiction of the civil courts in this state (including federal courts), as well as the courts of any other state which may have jurisdiction over any dispute contemplated by this Article, for the entry of a judgment confirming the arbitrators’ award. The arbitration process is not a substitute for any disciplinary process set forth in the constitution or bylaws of the church, and shall in no way affect the authority of the church to investigate reports of misconduct, conduct hearings, or administer discipline.”

You can find your nearest UK AOG church here…

http://www.aog.org.uk/

We think that Golding and Fransen would have more credibility (despite their obvious naivety about how the law actually works) if they were a little more even-handed. They can object to religious arbitration systems if they wish. They can even describe them as ‘courts’ if that makes them happy. But it’s clearly unfair, inappropriate and partisan to single out only Muslim organisations as the objects of their displeasure.

We wonder how long it’ll be before they object to Christian and Beth Din ‘courts’.

Don’t hold your breath!

Testing the boundary

BF compassion EBFToday in the High Court the limits of British democracy will be tested. This isn’t going to be the most important court case this nation has ever seen but it is going to be meaningful.

The case involves two relatively insignificant respondents – Paul ‘Folding’ Golding and Jayda ‘Dutchy’ Fransen. These fascist Biffers are the leaders of a half-arsed political party called Britain First. And there’s the crux of the case.

Folding and Dutchy have spent the last few years inciting as much anti-Muslim hatred and violence as they can. They’ve invaded mosques, disrupted lawful meetings, intimidated political opponents and even published names and addresses of critics. In addition they’ve ripped off charities, misused the names of fallen heroes and threatened to bury pigs heads under proposed mosque sites. They aren’t exactly typical politicians.

As leaders of Britain First they have long hidden behind their status as politicians to try to claim some sort of ‘diplomatic immunity’ from prosecution. And to an extent it’s worked. Folding has picked up the occasional fine but nothing like the prison sentence he deserves. Dutchy seems to have got off scot free – except for her tattered reputation, of course.

Today the High Court will decide if these disgusting, Nazi troublemakers can keep on causing trouble or if they will be prevented from indulging in the worst of their former activities. But that’s not really what this case symbolizes.

The High Court today has to decide if representative democracy has boundaries or if registered politicians really are ‘above the law’ as ‘Folding’ Golding seems to think.

We’ll know the answer soon enough.
