Tommy’s on track for a Pulitzer ‘Fake news’ prize

Tommy Robinson, AKA Stephen Yaxley-Lennon used to be just a football hooligan. Now he’s a football hooligan masquerading as an author and journalist.

We’ve all had the misfortune of coming across at least one of his many misrepresentations of reality. We may have been subjected to a video of him involved in a confrontation – a video that conveniently fails to show who started it. Or perhaps we’ve witnessed some ill-informed rant about his mates Paul and Jayda and the unfair way they’ve been held accountable for their crimes.

It would be easy to underestimate Mr. Yaxley-Lennon and write him off as a fool who really doesn’t understand the situations he distorts so casually but that would be a mistake. Tommy Robinson is no fool. He’s very well aware of his deception and clearly determined to continue misrepresenting the news, even manufacturing his own obvious propaganda for as long as it’s profitable. Except that it apparently isn’t.

Today he claimed a massive jump in sales of his book, ‘Enemy of the state’, even the title of which tries to afford him much greater significance than he actually warrants. In an attempt to appear somehow relevant he’s keen to promote himself as a popular investigative journalist with an audience hanging on his every word. He’d have us believe his political insights are so potent that his self-published book simply flies off the shelves at Amazon.com.

However, as ‘Mock the right’ have pointed out, the reality is, predictably enough, rather more mundane.

It seems that the best-selling Mr. Robinson has, to date, sold a grand total of 251 copies of his appallingly nonsensical drivel.

Don’t be fooled by the self-serving deceit of this far right cockwomble. His paltry sales actually show that he’s about as popular as a fart in a spacesuit. His devastating ‘insights’ into the ‘Islamic invasion’ he imagines are about as sophisticated as a high school pupil’s homework and his ‘news’ stories are as fake as it’s possible to be.

Stephen Yaxley-Lennon is a dangerous fraud. He incites violence against ordinary Muslims and in so doing increases the distrust and alienation of different sections of society – all so that He can make a few quid off the back of other peoples’ misery.

There’s a word to describe people like that…

The origins of Britain’s far right movement

Godwin’s law states that the first person to call their opponent a Nazi loses the debate. That’s because the word Nazi (the short-form of the German NSDAP or ‘National Socialist German Workers’ Party)’) is so over-used today. It’s become the go-to insult for those whose intellectual abilities have run dry and they find themselves unable to counter a well-thought out argument. In that sense, Godwin was right – the first person to call their opponent a Nazi has indeed, lost the debate. But what if the person you’re talking about or interacting with really is a Nazi?

edl nazi.jpg

That’s when Godwin’s law starts to come apart. It becomes even more confusing when your verbal sparring partner subscribes to Nazi policies (see groups like Britain First, UKIP and Liberty GB) and yet genuinely believes that they’re not Nazi at all. What if they actually see themselves as ‘anti-Nazi’?

The leadership of the British far-right have been so diligent in redefining themselves that they really have convinced their supporters (and perhaps even themselves) that their policies, although often exactly matching those of Hitler’s Nazi regime in the 1930s and 1940s, are actually anti-Nazi.

Here we chart the descent of Nazism through the generations as we might track the passage of the runners’ baton in an Olympic relay race. Here the track is measured in years, not metres but the principle is the same. The same baton that was touched by the hands of Hitler, Franco and Mussolini now finds itself carried just as reverently by Weston, Griffin, Yaxley-Lennon, Hopkins, Golding, Fransen and Dowson.

Hitler, Mussolini, Franco

It’s no secret that these three mid-twentieth century dictators knew each other. Hitler and Mussolini even fought together against the Allies during World War 2. Before the war both men sent troops, funds and equipment to support Franco’s fascist cause in the Spanish Civil War. They were the three most prominent fascist dictators of the period, matched in ruthlessness only by Stalin in Communist Russia. What isn’t so well known is the way that these dictators interacted with British High society.

Mosley, the British Union of Fascists

Oswald Mosley was the leader of the British Union of Fascists, a party he formed in 1932 immediately after visiting Mussolini in Italy.

mosleyMosley’s followers dressed in black military style uniform, shared Hitler’s hatred of Jews and socialists and even had their own army of street thugs, the infamous ‘Biff Boys’. These violent, black-shirted gangs spent their time terrorizing and assaulting Jews, homosexuals (the word ‘gay’ meant something rather different back then). Socialists and non-whites. Their methods and their targets were exactly the same as those of Ernst Rohm’s brown-shirted SA in pre-war Nazi Germany. There’s a reason for that.

Mosley and the Mitford sisters

Mosely had very real links to the fascists of Europe. As well as Mussolini he also visited Nazi Germany and married his second wife, Diana Mitford in the home of Joseph Goebbels. There were only around half a dozen guests in attendance including Adolf Hitler himself. Mosley’s new sister in law, Unity Mitford was known to be extremely close to Hitler and even got to attend high level strategy meetings with the Fuhrer. Unity killed herself when war was declared, so heartbroken was she at the rift between the two nations.

William Joyce Lord Haw HawDeputy leader William Joyce (Lord Haw Haw)

Deputy Leader of the BUF was William Joyce, later to defect to Nazi Germany and broadcast pro-Nazi propaganda across the channel throughout the war. Nicknamed ‘Lord Haw Haw’ by the British he was captured in 1945 and hanged for treason shortly afterward.

Defence regulation 18B

In late May 1940, Mosley and his wife, along with several other prominent members of the British Union of Fascists were imprisoned under Defence regulation 18B. This was an emergency power used to prevent any British citizen suspected of undermining the British war effort from aiding the enemy. The BUF itself was disbanded a few days later. However its legacy lives on.

Archibald Ramsay & The Right Club

Archibald RamsayArchibald Ramsay was a Scottish aristocrat and Conservative MP. He was a staunch supporter of Franco’s fascists during the Spanish Civil War. In 1935 he collaborated with German Nazi agents to found the Nordic League, an aristocratic version of Mosley’s BUF. Like the BUF, the Nordic League was deeply anti-Semitic and committed to establishing and maintaining a racially pure Britain. Ramsay was responsible for instigating a number of attempts to have Jews barred from political life in Britain.

In 1939 he founded The Right Club, a secret society of upper class Nazi sympathisers and anti-Semites whose stated aim was to expose and oppose organised Jewry. Members included Mosley, the traitor, William Joyce along with Anna Wolkoff and Tyler Kent who were subsequently imprisoned for passing classified information to the Nazis during wartime.

AK Chesterton

AK ChestertonAK Chesterton (not to be confused with author, GK Chesterton) was a prominent member of the British Union of Fascists, The Nordic League and The Right Club. Like his fellows he was staunchly anti-Semitic and pro-fascist. He left England during the second world war and went to live in Africa, presumably to avoid being forced to fight against his ideological brethren. However he maintained his far-right, anti-Semitic and openly racist views throughout his life and was instrumental in passing the baton of fascism down to the next generation of British Nazis – The National Front.

 

Chesterton, Tyndall and the National Front

John TyndallChesterton’s most prominent protégé was John Tyndall. Through Tyndall and his fellow acolyte, Colin Jordan the ageing Nazi sympathiser passed the baton of extreme right wing politics to the next generation. Tyndall joined his mentor, Chesterton in the League of Empire Loyalists, The National Labour Party (mirroring Hitler’s National Socialist Party) and The National Socialist Movement (with Jordan) until eventually the pair co-founded The National Front in the late 1960s.

The early years of The National Front, steered as it was by Chesterton and Tyndall saw the introduction of many better known modern neo-Nazis who also carry forward the baton of British fascism first brandished by Mosley, Joyce and Ramsay. Under Chesterton and Tyndall’s stewardship the NF nurtured the early political careers of people like Nick Griffin and Andrew Brons (later to become British National Party MEPs), Holocaust denier, Martin Wingfield and even Tommy Robinson. Tyndall and Colin Jordan eventually formed the White Defence League before uniting with John Bean to found the British National Party.

Andrew Brons had been a member of Colin Jordan’s National Socialist Movement, an affiliation he has repeatedly had to distance himself from in later years. In 1965 he joined the National front led by John Bean. This is not the same National Front that Tyndall and Chesterton founded in 1967 although its aims and ideology were the same – anti-Semitism, racial purity and neo-Nazism. Only in 1967, following a merger with Tyndall and Chesterton’s League of Empire Loyalists did the current National Front come into existence. With this merger, a critical mass of new-generation Nazis was re-established in UK and Mosley’s baton became a truncheon once again.

Combat 18 and Column 88

Combat 18 nazi

This newly imagined National Front gave rise to some of the most violent street warfare of the period. Groups like Combat 18 were as much the NF’s enforcers as Mosely’s ‘Biff Boys’ had been for the BUF. Named after letters of the alphabet, Combat 18 stood for A & H (Adolf Hitler). Column 88 whose initials stood for HH (Heil Hitler) was led by former British National Party stalwart Leslie Eric Lutz Vaughan. The column was a paramilitary Nazi group whose CO of operations was a former Black Watch Major called Ian Souter Clarence. The ‘good’ Major used to run military style training camps and was widely thought to have stockpiled weapons acquired after demobilisation of WW2 servicemen.

 

Both groups  have a string of convictions for intimidation, assault, harassment and even murder to their credit. More modern groups like The Pie and Mash Squad and the EDL’s breakaway ‘Infidels’ groups have their own links with these early bands of politicised street fighters.

Nick Griffin

Nick Griffin NF White PowerNick Griffin was mentored by Tyndall and followed his far-right tutor from the National Front into the newly formed British National Party. This erstwhile NF Street fighter rose to prominence in the BNP and eventually ousted his old mentor to take the BNP chair for himself. There he steered the party from relative obscurity to become the most successful British far-right party since Mosley’s BUF before financial irregularities and a string of law-suits brought his newly-built empire crashing down around his ears. Now the BNP is a shadow of its former self with many of its members defecting to join the ranks of street movements like the English Defence League and Britain First.

The BNP gives birth to the EDL and Britain First

Paul Golding had once been a member of the National Front but he followed his mentor, Nick Griffin into the BNP when still a teenager. With Griffin’s mentorship he rose to become Communications Officer on the party’s National Executive and was widely tipped to rise high in the organisation. That was until things started to fall apart.

Tommy (EDL leader) RobinsonStephen Yaxley-Lennon was a member of the British National Party under Griffin’s leadership. It’s unclear how well he knew Griffin personally but they certainly had shared contacts and their ideologies are broadly the same. It was Robinson who took the far-right baton in a new direction and abandoned politics, albeit temporarily to form the English Defence League, a street movement that once boasted up to 5,000 ‘foot-soldiers’ at its largest demonstration.

The English Defence League still exists but without Yaxley-Lennon (AKA Tommy Robinson) who has since been associated with the Muslim-led anti-terror organisation Quilliam and then the UK Branch of the anti-Muslim group, Pegida. More recently in a desperate effort to avoid a much-deserved obscurity he’s pretending to be a journalist. In truth he’s generally found causing trouble, getting into fights and then filming the retaliation of others whilst pretending to be a victim. These days he tries to assume an air of reasonableness but underneath he’s the same bigotted thug he always was.

British National Party fundraiser, Ulster Unionist and long-time pro-life campaigner, Jim Dowson became involved in a spat with Griffin over allegations of sexual misconduct. Dowson left the party in less than amicable circumstances and Golding went with him. Together they formed the anti-Muslim party, Britain First in 2010. They were later joined by former EDL ‘Angel’, Jayda Fransen and spend much of their time campaigning against Islam and ‘invading’ Mosques and Halal businesses. The pair regularly find themselves in court for harassment, breaches of bail and ironically for wearing political uniform, an offence under the Pubic Order Act of 1936, originally created to kerb Mosley’s black-shirted British Union of Fascists.

BF beyond UKIP cabaret invasion

Having recognised their ideological soul-mates in Nigel Farage’s UKIP, Britain First even set themselves up for a time as UKIP’s attack dogs. They harassed their opponents and mounted unofficial ‘patrols’ to ensure would-be demonstrators against UKIP were intimidated. They were a much less effective and actually quite laughable parody of the German Nazi party’s violent, brown-shirted ‘SA’. Golding, Fransen and the rest of the BF leadership have repeatedly called for their supporters to vote UKIP, presumably having noted the many similarities between UKIP’s extreme right policies and their own.

Most recently both Golding and Fransen have been imprisoned for racially motivated harassment and their organisation has been banned from the largest social media sites. It is this double-whammy blow to Britain First that has prompted EBF to rebrand itself and broaden our horizons. Britain First is dying but British fascism is not – so we continue.

Godwin’s law revisited

It’s clear that step by step, generation by generation the British fascist baton has been passed down without interruption from mentor to student, from racist to racist, Anti-Semite to anti-Muslim, Nazi to neo-Nazi for almost a century now. As this series continues we’ll start to look at how the very same policies and ideological beliefs have withstood the test of time. Some have remained unchanged whilst others have adapted slightly in the face of modern attitudes and current events. But however they might have been adapted, disguised and given the superficial appearance of something far more moderate than they really are, the core of  fascism and Nazism remains unchanged.

Remember – Godwin’s law only applies if the people you’re talking about aren’t actually Nazis. In this case – they really are!

Is this the real life? by Landlord

As the song goes……

Is this the real life, or is it just fantasy?

The last few days have been like my wife talking about East Coronation Farm Oaks or in other words a soap opera starring the biffer high command.

As I wrote on the page we will not put anything on the page until we confirm the veracity of the allegations but we can draw conclusions from them and wonder what can happen further down the line.

We receive messages on a weekly basis from Moley and this has hinted at misdeeds by Screechy and Goldibollocks but with no viable proof, unlike the biffers, we won’t publish.
These allegations that we’ve seen over the last few days could be the beginning of the end for the biffers as in fighting causes them to implode, it could be the start of a hostile takeover by Screechy and factions close to her or it could be an elaborate hoax to test the loyalty of the high command.

The last of these would mean that someone in the Fuhrer bunker has the intelligence to start such a ruse!

Fuhrer bunkerWe are well aware of certain factions trying to take over Britain First. The woman at the centre of these allegations is a racist, a member of a Polish far right organisation that the biffers have been courting and probably been trying to get funds from. Could it be that these fascists want more than just a connection?

Tommy Robinson has been sniffing about the high command recently. Maybe the amount of money that the biffers fleece from their sheeple has attracted him like a fly over shit.

Screechy has appeared recently to be more than just the Nazi wet dream poster girl. Now Leader of the ‘Northern Ireland division’ it seems to us that she has manoeuvred herself into poll position for Fuhrer! She certainly has, from what I have seen, a huge support from biffers and respect from other fash movements. Where Goldibollocks is seen by most despicable right wing fucknuggets as a conman who would sell out for five faaaaaasand paaaaands, Screechy really is a nasty fash.

Whichever one it could be, as someone who is dedicated to their downfall I’ll watch with enjoyment as the Fuhrer bunker crumbles around their ears!

Fuhrer bunker destroyed

A view from the cellar 8

Landlord in cellarOnce again apologies for my lack of blog over the weekend, the family are away and a weeks bachelorhood has caught up with me.

Apologies are due as well to the biffers, we never thought they’d do it but they have, Goldibollocks has reached the required funds for the mayoral campaign, and his family and Screechy have made it onto the list as candidates for the London Assembly. So now the hard work begins for us…hassle and expose them at every turn. The great thing is they will be going head to head with skilled debaters, career politicians and interviewers who won’t take the blatant lies they come out with (if they get interviewed at all.) The Fuhrer-bunker seems to think that their brand of islamaphobic tosh will be lapped up by white Londoners all over the capital.

Here’s my take on a possible interview with Jezza Paxman…

  1. JP. Welcome to Paul Goldibollocks and Screechy Fransen who have become leading contenders in the race for mayor and London assembly.
  2. GS. Thanks Jeremy, Can I just say that there will be no more mosques in London and the current ones pulled down so we can build more churches.
  3. JP. Thanks for that. I need to ask what you will do with the £17 billion budget that you will have once you take up the role.
  4. GS. We will make sure that Greggs are on every corner of every street, our mate Stevey Lewis then can walk about with our shittroopers making sure that anyone wearing a burka will be made to change into revealing get up. Then we will build a wall round London, kick the immigrants out and keep London for the white English.
  5. JP. Controversial stuff, what about policing, health care, social housing, lighting and all the other things that are needed.
  6. GS. Well there will be no need for police as when all the immigrants go there will be no crime, my private security team will make sure of that. Health care will be fine as the muzzies will no longer take up any time, lighting is no problem as the sun shines out of screechys arse. We’ll have around 16 billion to spend on Screechy’s tits and holidays. Also we can repay Uncle Jim.
  7. JP. So Screechy what about you what are your first few days in office going to be like?
  8. No more mosques, ban the burka, god is great, prayers for everyone, bloody muzzies?
  9. JP. So what about the…..
  10. GS. Stop bullying us, we’ve told you with no muzzies, no burkas and no mosques and all will be sweet.
  11. JP. but….
  12. GS. Typical lefty journalism, appeasers and bias against us.
  13. JP. Surely you can tell us..
  14. GS. I’ve told you before I’m telling you again, my security team are just getting the nooses ready now, all the problems in London are muzzies.

We’ve looked everywhere but can’t see how the very fuck they are going to be able to talk about anything other than their disgusting “keeping Britain British”  mantra. They will have no answer to the established parties asking them proper questions about the budget, yet they see this as a chance to go into the mainstream of British Politics. Somehow they think that a million or so likes on Facebook equates to large swathes of support on the ground. I’m hoping that when they get hardly any support they’ll realise that all they are is media junkies, no better than those who go on the Jeremy Kyle show or try out on the Xfactor pop Idol thingy. Goldy and Screechy, no one listens to you, no one wants you, and London certainly doesn’t deserve your publications or papers.

Tommy Robinson smirkThe far right came out to play again at the weekend, firstly in Dover under the guise of supporting our truckers. The casuals that were there barely managed to get 50 people on the ground to march along the seafront. They were countered by around 800-1000 antifa. The local Tory bloke wasn’t happy and seemed to slam the ‘lefteyes’ for blocking the road to stop the fash..needless to say the twatter lines slammed him. Secondly, our mate Tommy was back with his new breed of racism in Birmingham with Pegida. A staggering 30 people turned up for a stroll round a deserted industrial estate despite the boast that this march would attract 10000. He wants another go and now will take his brand of bollocks to Rotherham.

Pie and Mash, they who left the EDL for being too nice, want to go to back to Dover at the end of the month, a move that can only mean one thing, a drunken brawl.

So once again, although the headlines are all about a triumphant move for mayor, the far right can’t get anyone out to support them.

Now I think I better toddle off and do a weeks washing up before the Landlady comes home.

View from a Cellar 4

Landlord in cellarMore midweek shenanigans from the wonderful world of the right wing. I’ve been looking through the pages on facebook and in the papers and not a great deal is going on over in bigotland, the brand new theme park for the foaming right.

“Roll up roll up bigoted ones and racists all, for today we have all of you in one place.”

The EDL to the right, Pegida to the right, biffers on the evangelical right and thugs like the infidels, National Action and the NF to the far right. A foam fest of grand proportions for one day only.

There’s Goldibollocks and screechy preaching to their 120 followers wanting to take “are country back” This area comes complete with bible reading area (Brian Blessed type voice as we know the struggle with reading) Lefty Jounalist Pinata’s, a shop with stab vests and newspapers and a handy Police station for anyone who’s on Bail.

Oooh look There’s Pegida with stickers all over their mouths…..oh and a Pakistan flag…. all 127 of them with begging buckets. Tommy is there with MI5,MI6 and the rest of the intelligence community standing with him in case he wants to grass his former mates up. It appears Tommy has been on a ride as he seems to have taken a bashing coming out of a club. His police mates are looking at over a million suspects. This area comes with a dream factory as he’s delusional over 10000 people out on his next march and the management of Bigot World will have to get another couple of acres.

EDL Imbibing brotherhood brethren Bibo ergo sum in vino veritasPaul Locke and the EDL seem to have found Stella world, complete with directions on how to give the best Nazi salute. At least he seems to have found a couple of hundred like minded souls to keep him company. This part of the park includes handy advice on how to not get your Facebook pages hacked and how to scream about banning the Burka while still wearing face coverings.

Aha! Finally we have the real thugs and bigots. They are all bunched up in one. The infidels who are currently on an unsupervised march with no police protection as they haven’t told anyone….apart from Antifa, other groups and the police on social media. Where they are comes with handy Section 35 orders and instructions on how to get yourself nicked in one easy take. National Action are visiting a great area, a shop with banana’s and a left luggage office to take cover in the event of rain (or antifa). Their white knuckle ride is called “Scouse” and has them cowering in the corner. And it looks like the National Front have turned up..all 15 of them to show us Enoch was right.

It all looks so sweet until closing time when they seem to get on each others nerves, forget their percieved enemy and turn Bigot world into one big riot. Security (with real trained operatives with real licenses) turn up but along with the rest of the general public just can’t help laughing at these fucknuggets and their followers.

Oh well back to work now…look out for a view from a barstool this weekend with the news of the arrest of Screechy and Goldibollocks. I’m going to have to hide away well away from the Landlady.

Cheers

Tommy Robinson confuses the flock

The most obvious, most noticeable characteristic of UK fascists is their inability to maintain original thoughts. They have no critical thinking skills, no ability to discern fact from fiction and so no clue what their opinions ought to be. They always need someone to tell them what they believe – otherwise they become angry and confused.

Usually the message is simple and unambiguous. Something like…

• White people good
• Brown people bad
• Muslim means brown

• All Muslims are paedophiles
• All paedophiles are Muslims
• White paedophiles are ‘the exception that proves the rule’

• All brown people are terrorists
• Immigrants are terrorists
• Terrorists aren’t refugees
• No immigrants are refugees
• They’re ‘fakugees’ (that’s a clever sounding word, innit?)

You get the idea. So long as nobody contradicts their narrow, unthinking world view all is well. But watch what happens when one of their leaders says or does the wrong thing.

Tommy Pegida Birmingham backfire 1

But wait – most of the people marching under the Pegida flag were only there because Tommy used to lead them against brown people from Pakistan in the EDL. Oh dear. That’s confusing. What’s a fascist to do?

Tommy Pegida Birmingham backfire 2 quilliam

That’s it – reject him. If we all turn our backs on him and pretend he’s not there he’ll go away, won’t he? Won’t he? Please say he will.

Sensing the burgeoning existential crisis about to sweep over the Imbibing Brotherhood like a wave, up and coming leader and Solihull ‘Division commander’ (they have such grandiose titles) gave them a less confusing and much more familiar solution. Just batter Tommy and anyone who still believes in him. That should do the trick.

EDL Paul Locke reaction to Tommy Robinson Pegida Pakistan flag.pngIt’s ironic that these people whose only solution to every problem is to beat some poor sod up for having a different (even if only slightly different) opinion think they know what’s best for this country. And not only UK but Europe, the world and, worst of all, for desperate refugees whose plight the drunken EDL can’t even begin to imagine. It takes more than a drunken punch up to solve complex problems, Paul.

It takes more than a bunch of uneducated, drunken, white supremacist scumbags to solve the subtle problems of international relations.

It takes diplomacy.
It takes understanding.
It takes mutual respect.
It takes a commitment to peaceful negotiation.

It generally doesn’t involve fists or large quantities of cheap lager!

EDL Imbibing brotherhood brethren Bibo ergo sum in vino veritas

Pegida coulda picked a better leader

It seems that Tommy Robinson, sometime leader of the ‘Imbibing brotherhood’ (AKA the English Defence League), might not make it to the inaugural Pegida UK piss up in Brum. He’s due before the bench (again) very soon on a charge of battery and might be on course for another stretch at Her Majesty’s pleasure. Not that there’d be anything particularly pleasurable about playing host to that little cockwomble.

EDL leaders Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll In Court
Tommy Robinson pictured in 2013 outside Westminster Magistrates Court where he was facing charges of obstructing the police during an EDL march in East London.

This is the guy who shafted the EDL once the money stopped coming in by defecting to Quilliam.

This is the guy who walked away from Quilliam when he realised that they wouldn’t be giving the nasty little racist scumbag celebrity status.

This is the guy who thinks he can muster enough support for a UK branch of Pegida (even though he’s well known as a turncoat fraudster).

This is the guy who (hopefully) will soon be back inside where he can’t do as much damage to society. With all his ‘previous’ it certainly seems to be a possibility.

Here’s hoping for a nice long stretch!
