The sickening history of violence stalking Tamworth

posted by: Sarah Archibald | on: Thursday, 29 October 2015, 17:27


The launch of an anti-refugee protest by an English Defence League (EDL) organiser in Tamworth has backfired spectacularly as locals have rallied round to challenge her messages of hate.

Backing the messsage of hate, being driven by Staffordshire woman and English Defence League (EDL) organiser Jenna Louca, is none other than Daryl Rickhuss, who we have written about before and his link to a shocking and tragic, racist death.

Louca and Rickhuss: Neither peaceful nor pleasant

Louca and Rickhuss: Neither peaceful nor pleasant

Louca announced a protest after the council confirmed the borough would welcome a total of ten Syrian refugee families into a town of nearly 80,000 people.

Louca: looking for a war

Louca: looking for a war

She has also (disingenuously) claimed the protest is not an EDL one- but one she has organised simply as a local resident. Her Facebook posts suggest otherwise.

Unhelpfully the local paper in its report of the protest neglected to mention Louca’s EDL role- although it did point out that supporters of the fascist group would be attending.

Louca’s protest is due to take place next week under the banner of “Tamworth Says No To Refugees.” This is misleading on a couple of counts: Firstly it is clear that that those subscribing to the cause are largely from outside Tamworth and in the main, supporters of the EDL. Secondly, a far more positive and actually local Tamworth group, “Tamworth Says Yes To Refugees” has attracted widespread support in the town.

The differences between the attitudes and morality of the two groups is also markedly different. Louca and her supporters clearly relish the thought of street confrontations, a return to the “good old days” with the EDL activist “prepared for war.”

HOPE not Hate also understands that locals have reported to the police a variety of abuse and threats that have been made by EDL supporters.

Among those seemingly relishing the prospect of violence are Mark Larden (Sheffield EDL), Ian Crossland (Sheffield EDL), Tony Foster (Derby EDL), Liam Jones (Walsall EDL), Paul Locke (Walsall EDL), Spencer Shirley (Solihull EDL) and Chris Walters (Shrewsbury EDL), hardly a local group of concerned citizens, but more or less just a gang of racist thugs with nothing better to do with themselves than spread racism, hatred and misery.

The BNP has split again and it's rather quite boring...

Jack Sen: handsome devil and charmless man

Jack Sen: handsome devil and charmless man

There's been a few rumblings of late about another split in the British National Party (BNP). What is left worth even splitting about is up for debate, but it spilled out into the open last night with an attack from the London Organiser of the party on the party's website manager, Chris Barnett.

In the last fortnight the party has parted company with a number of organisers. Some of them have been forced out, while others have quit in disgust at the way the party has (predictably) become the personal banker of a number of people with little or no work record who now run the party. And then there is of course, the unfolding police investigation into tragic events which unsurprisingly, the BNP is desperate to distance itself from.

The leader of one of the splinter groups appears to be Jack Sen. It was only in May of this year that the party was delighted to announce they had recruited the controversial former UKIP candidate.

Now Sen has left the party, assured of his own supreme brilliance, and has launched a new gang of Jew haters. This is the gang behind the invitation to the American fascist due to arrive here next month.

Sen has issued a statement to the few people still involved with the BNP and he appears to take great issue too, with Chris Barnett.

Sen has left: Feel the width, not the quality

Sen has left: Feel the width, not the quality

This is a major embarrassment to the party leadership who had previously donned unfashionable attire to welcome Sen to the party.

On the face of it, it appears that Sen has ripped an enormous hole in the party, taking with him one cash-cow who even stayed with the party when Nick Griffin was dumped.

Happier Times: Two tramps welcoming Sen to the party

Happier Times: Two tramps welcoming Sen to the party

Sen has cited what appears to be a Zionist conspiracy as one of the reasons for his departure. How very original. Judging by his Facebook page, I'd say he is probably a narcissist.

No doubt next week someone will write an article convincing us that the far-right in this is country is growing.

Nazi letter of the week

A sausage roll: Symbol of Sharia etc, etc

A sausage roll: Symbol of Sharia etc, etc

We often mention the British National Party (BNP) splinter group British Voice. The tiny gang of dafties are so daft that even Nick Griffin did not want to be a member-and he formed the group!

British Voice: May need to scream to be heard

British Voice: May need to scream to be heard

Of late the 'party' has been divided over arguments about who 'allegedly' pocketed the £93.60 from their bank account.

Despite the misery of poverty and stupidity, the party has bravely soldiered on in the belief they are on the cusp of a major political break-through.

Yesterday, Martin Vaughan, who holds almost every post in the party except leader or treasurer, fired the first shot in the revolution.

Crumbs: Quiver in your apron Mr Gregg

Crumbs: Quiver in your apron Mr Gregg

Due to the Islamic take over of Britain, Martin will no longer be eating sausage rolls from Greggs Bakery.

I'm pretty certain that as I write, the CEO is trying to flog his holiday home on EBay knowing that Martin and his hungry colleagues will be going elsewhere in their search for suitable Aryan savouries.

An army marches on its stomach, etc, etc.

Vaughan: Will not eat all the pies

More trouble for the BNP

Squire: Already the subject of a

Squire: Already the subject of a "filth" file at head office

The British National Party (BNP) has had quite an eruption this afternoon when their own pornographer and London Organiser lashed out at the party's website manager, Chris Barnett.

Squire, a figure derided and despised by the party's Treasurer Clive Jefferson, has accused Barnett of being responsible for the venue the party had booked for their annual conference cancelling on them.

Barnett: A shy boy from Burnley

Barnett: A shy boy from Burnley

According to our source in the party, Squire has also made other derogatory statements about Barnett's private life, something he makes a habit of doing due to his own lack of intellect.

What appears to be happening in reality is that Squire is trying to force his hand in the party in a desperate attempt to be made Deputy Chairman and is using his ridiculous and unfounded ‘exposé’ of Barnett as an excuse.

It is believed that Squire was responsible for a series of vile rumours regarding the partner of a former BNP organiser and social services which led him to resign last week. All very unpleasant in the BNP as usual, when drug dealers and bad babysitters are involved.

Squire: Starting another split?

Squire: Starting another split?

To make things even more interesting, Squire is said to have actually linked up with former Salford Organiser Gary Tumulty, who has himself been the victim of Squire's backstabbing.

Barnett is currently on the phone to the BNP leadership demanding some kind of retribution against Squire. He'll probably get it due to Squire being wholly unpopular anywhere north of his home in Enfield and the fact that the BNP’s leadership fear a southern rising any time soon.

Far-right round up

Adam Walker: BNP Nazi Pol Pot

Adam Walker: BNP Nazi Pol Pot

It's not often these days we mention the British National Party (BNP), that once mighty nazi party that conned almost a million of the electorate to vote for them back in 2009.

The party's demise, which began in 2010, now sees the party with its smallest membership since it was formed back in 1982.

Better times: Adam was not even born yet

Better times: Adam was not even born yet

I do sometimes wonder whether there is even anybody left in the party who can add up the faux results from the party's recent leadership contest and compare it against the party's statement about the vote's turn out and then compare that against the party's submission to the electoral commission. But then, why bother?

The party has recently been up in court over another in a long list of non-payments (this time the gas bill) and another split has been narrowly avoided by driving out one of the leadership's most loyal lapdogs, by making insulting comments about all kinds of things that should be personal to him..

Clive Jefferson is up in court again next month. Should be fun..

In the last month, the party lost two whole branches. One of those isn't really a surprise given what is going on there and what will eventually be exposed will no doubt taint anyone that ever went near the party.

Unsurprisingly, BNP's campaign for Mayor of London is a spectacular disaster already. Like some other British nazis, they seem to have developed a deep admiration for Pol Pot. For the BNP, this appears to be turning the clock back on not just their campaigns, but party publications too. The party has just merged two party publications in to one, but has kept the name of one publication and simply wound the issue number back to number one. Confused? You should be. I envisage that rather like Pot's old regime's currency, it will get printed and just left to rot.

And by the way, what is the BNP's interest in photographing young girls and plastering them over almost every publication, leaflet and website? Maybe they're trying to perk the interest of their receding activist base in the north west...

BNP publications: Still absent and shite

BNP publications: Still absent and shite

Talking of printing currency (which I did in the last paragraph), spare a though for Britain First. According to the latest begging email things in the party are so bad financially that the party are considering making their own Vodka to fight off the outrageous prices being charged by supermarkets for the party's favourite rocket fuel. Whoever writes these begging emails is not very good at it. And stupid.

Not to worry: Check under your mattress

Not to worry: Check under your mattress

On Wednesday of this week, we published about a certain nazi cook and bottle washer volunteering at a Foodbank. Some people really are too trusting in believing that she did it through the goodness of her heart and not some sick, sinister plot to recruit people struggling and having a hard time. She even offered to feed her fellow nazis- I'm assuming out of the proceeds of donations. "Debs" as Mrs McMahon would like her fellow Nutzis to call her even went on to our Facebook page to complain that she only volunteered to feed "our" folk. For those unaware, "our" folk in nazi vernacular are white, racist and stupid. And called the National Front.

Debbie:

After Debbie, we then asked the question about Sunderland nazis trying to muscle in on the poppy appeal. This has not gone down too well, and as well as the usual illiterate death threats from nazis, it appears Billy Charlton is raging too. Good.

Move along, Billy.

Move along, Billy.

Did the British Legion really ask neo-nazis for help?

Charlton speaking at Nazi rally earlier this year

Charlton speaking at Nazi rally earlier this year

Today is the launch of the poppy appeal, the campaign of remembrance for British, Commonwealth and Allied servicemen and women who have fought for or with this country.

Plenty has been said before about the attitude of fascists in this country towards the poppy, the symbol used to remember those who have fallen in service. Nothing is sacred or sacrosanct for such people.

Charlton on the poppy appeal

Charlton on the poppy appeal

This morning it has emerged that Billy Charlton from Sunderland is recruiting fellow race haters and neo-nazis to run the poppy appeal in Sunderland and according to him, with the blessing of the Royal British Legion!

Charlton is an associate of such groups as the English Defence League (EDL), National Front (NF), National Action (NA) and the Infidels. Hardly the sort of people who have much in common with people who fought the nazis in the second world war.

Charlton currently leads the Sunderland Defence League, a rag tag bunch of Hitler worshippers and bootlickers. Earlier this year he was a speaker at the 'White Man's March' in Newcastle where a host of Hitler worshippers gathered behind Nazi flags.

This morning I have spoken to somebody responsible for the organising of the poppy collections in Sunderland, and they say they are unaware of this, but they are not really involved in the campaign/appeal any more.

Charlton: is he a liar?

Charlton: is he a liar?

It is a stain on the memory of millions of men, women and children to have these vile thugs who often carry the torch of the enemies of democracy to use the poppy appeal to further their tiny gangs and use the poppy appeal for their own political purposes.

I'll let you know what the press office has to say when they pick up their phones.

Wright: Sick fantasies

Wright: Sick fantasies

Meet David Wright from Barnsley in South Yorkshire. He runs the 'Yorkshire Infidels' a tiny gang of wannabe Nazis who spend most of their time in the pub and on Facebook promising to do all kinds of things to little kids.

This morning, David posted a beheading video on the group's facebook page. It was gruesome. Even his other nazi mates were horrified by it. When asked why he had posted it, he replied that he "likewatching (sic) head getting chopped off."

Sick: Wright loves beheading videos

Obviously he is having a right day of it, as tonight he says he is planning to go on some kind of rape and murder spree in Bradford, I assume when the English Defence League crawl into town next month.

Wanting to join Wright is serial far-right wally Carl Worrall from the Isle of Wight (via Liverpool) who has quite a history of violence and public stupidity. Worrall is keen to go on this murder/mayhem spree, and where better does he think it is better to stay, than at the heartbreak hotel that is the home of Andy 'Loverman' Royston, whose views on women has been mentioned here only last week.

By the way, Wright claims he is a Christian. Nice eh?

An unwelcome deposit at a Middleton foodbank?

posted by: Sarah Archibald | on: Wednesday, 21 October 2015, 20:58


Mrs Mcmahon: Like a white Delia Smith apparently

Mrs Mcmahon: Like a white Delia Smith apparently

One has to wonder if a foodbank dedicated to serving all in need regardless of race, faith, gender, sexual orientation and nationality would want a renowned racist and homophobe manning the decks. On the balance of probabilities, we think not.

We’d best give the heads up then to whichever foodbank in Middleton, Rochdale, has accepted as a volunteer the National Front's rabble-rouser and cook, Debbie 'White Delia Smith' McMahon.

This was no doubt done unwittingly as she’s clearly unsuited to a role serving the community, despite her reputation as the far right’s Delia Smith, a woman who conjures up a veritable smorgasbord of culinary treats armed only with the entire contents of the local ASDA’s chiller cabinet.

McMahon, who lives with gawjus hubby Kevin, a man whose intellect is inversely proportional to his girth, reports on her ever entertaining Facebook feed, that she was knackered just at thought of turning in a few hours volunteering.

The usual gang of racists

The usual gang of racists

She also jokingly pledged food parcels to Peter Hawley, the grey-haired North West Infidel who served time for a violent and not terrifically brave gang attack in Liverpool. Among those jailed alongside the ageing Adidas-adoring thug were fellow Infidels Shane Calvert, Stephen Dumont and the bravest of the bunch, Liam Pinkham, who also has a conviction for harassing women shopworkers. All do or have associated with the McMahons', being spotted at such prestigious events as Manchester’s ‘White Pride World Wide Day’ which pulled in patriots from as far across the globe as Salford and West Yorkshire.

It has to be wondered if in her new role Debs will, without fear or favour, distribute food to those in the community she professes to loathe. These include people who are, you know, not white, Muslims, Jews, gays, the hormonal young men of National Action, er, other female members of the NF and, er other male members of the NF.

Community foodbanks do great work, acting less as charity and more in solidarity when supporting the many people left hungry by the ravages of austerity, the benefit cuts and sanctions. The people who volunteer at Foodbanks are decent, kind and trustworthy people. It would not be inkeeping if one of the volunteers was to use their position to perhaps, take advantage of a person who is struggling and may be through no fault of their own, vulnerable to the sort of racist nonsense McMahon is famous for.

Foodbanks are fastly becoming part of working class communities feeling the vicious pinch of cuts and cuts to welfare. Deb McMahon does not believe in that community, but in white supremacy. She is ill-suited to the role.

Royston with girlfriend and friends

Well, how silly did we feel on Sunday night when we read that Sheffield's very own Mr Loverman was cuddled up on the couch with the woman of his dreams again?

On Friday we blogged how Andy Rosyton was mourning the breakdown of his realtionship. I can't actually be bothered finding the posts he made on Facebook. They were sad.

Back in Love on Sunday night

Back in Love on Sunday night

But come Sunday night, after a tiny EDL rally in Aylesbury on the weekend and an EDL member later being hospitalised in Birmingham by a Muslim man who the gang had tried to abuse, Royston was back on his couch and loved up the max.

And then, tonight, we are back to this.

Renshaw: No job, no life, no school

First of all, it appears that the small and perfectly formed Jew hater Jack Renshaw has left Manchester University, and not of his own accord.

It's probably some kind of Jewish conspiracy etc, etc, but it does give Jack a lot more time to play with himself and his gay dog. Perhaps he's going to become the new Ian Anderson?

Also heading to pastures brown is Renshaw's old nemesis Gary Tumulty, the (now) former organiser of Salford BNP. Maybe Gary heard what his nasty party mates had to say about his missus behind his back? Anyway, Gary's gone and by all accounts that is good news for Facebook app's. He'll be solving murders and herding some sheep instead of putting out racist nonsense from now on.

Tumulty: Persil couldn't get his mess clean

They won't be missed.

Matthew Heimbach, founder of the White Student Union and Traditionalist Youth Network, is planning a trip to the UK from his wooden home in the United States. He'll be trying to enter the country later this month to speak at a hate filled lunch in Southport. That is of course, unless the Home Secretary is good on her word.

Far-right round up

posted by: Matthew Collins | on: Friday, 9 October 2015, 12:26


Calvert: Intellectual heavyweight of the far-right

Calvert: Intellectual heavyweight of the far-right

After much debate and soul-searching, in this week's round up we have decided it is best not to mention which member of a fascist group was dumped by his mix raced girlfriend-not for being part of a fascist group, but because he kept asking her dress up as a school girl. And other things..

It's a busy weekend for the far-right coming up, too. The axis has swung firmly away from the English Defence League (EDL) and now sits somewhere between the heroin dealers and the dog fighters of the National Front (NF) and the 'Infidels'. And the pub toilet seat.

That'll be good news for the Infidels leader, Shane Calvert aka 'Diddyboy,' who has worn exactly the same outfit for the last four years.

Lots of speakers, not many brain cells

Lots of speakers, not many brain cells

The NF and Infidels' are organising a joint rally in Preston this Saturday with a host of lowlife luminaries travelling the country to join them in the pub toilets chopping up their regular fix. Later in the afternoon there will also be a memorial to the dead and unlamented British nazi John Tyndall at the usual venue in Preston. Tyndall will be turning in his spittoon. Almost all of those who are trying to cash in on his name he hated. Except for Richard Edmonds; Tyndall pitied him for years and years.

EDL: More ignored than Royston's tears

EDL: More ignored than Royston's tears

The EDL is heading to Aylesbury as part of some worldwide 'EDL Day' nonsense. Sadly for them, nobody else in the world appears to also be taking part in it, except in Australia. Given the time difference between our two countries, those drongos should be able to report another drubbing just in time for our breakfast tomorrow. The EDL is dead.

As if the very public, ongoing and agonising death of the EDL was not hard enough to watch, Sheffield's Andy Royston has been mourning and agonising being dumped by his girlfriend all week on his social media pages. Royston who "left" his job at a Sheffield steelworks a few years ago under an apparent cloud is really struggling to cope with his girlfriend dumping him. She however, seems quite happy to see the back of him. So here it is.

Royston: Dresses and acts like a big kid

Royston: Dresses and acts like a big kid

The car-park Christians of Britain First survived the attentions of BBC3 during the week. Indeed, they really had very little to worry about. If the BBC3 journalist can go with them to a curry house named 'Kent Curry' in Dartford, Kent, and still think he's in Essex, it gives you an idea how badly researched the programme was.

At times it was clichéd, but most of the time it was just poor and lacking in substance. It appears that the format for modern documentary making is to just turn up and make inane comment about things that have neither been researched or understood and to just get everything wrong but hope that nobody watching at home notices.

This might work with renovating an old shed or Andy Royston's love life, but pretending (or believing?) for the duration of the documentary that Britain First were some brand new cutting-edge political movement and then trying to convince those at home of as much, was never going to work. Neither was the using, almost completely, of footage actually shot by Britain First themselves. The shouting of personal questions at the Biffers' deputy leader Jayda Fransen across a crowded demonstration was poor beyond belief. The idiot had her in a church long enough to ask the question, but didn't. No wonder her and Godless Golding told the Beeb to jog on. The only question is, did the BBC pay Britain First the continual use of their footage?

How will the BBC cope with Britain First?

posted by: Matthew Collins | on: Tuesday, 6 October 2015, 14:37


BBC3 is soon to be flung from our television screens and into the dustbin of internet broadcasting, paying the price perhaps, for there not being enough quality programming on the Beeb worth repeating on BBC3. Or BBC3 one could argue, is simply paying the price for having what good content it did occasionally provide, stolen by BBC's One and Two.

Such is life, those with bigger brothers and sisters will testify. I for one won't particularly miss it. Sometimes it was hard to know when Little Britain had finished and BBC3 documentaries began.

But when BBC3 gets it right, it does so quite brilliantly. The current 'Race' season, where it explores, funnily enough, issues around race, has been up until last night, quite brilliant.

A few minor clangers- or perhaps best described as missed opportunities, didn't ruin an interesting look at life with the Klan and this was followed up by the excellent look at life in Ferguson by Reggie Yates.

Last night BBC3 decided to ask the big question: Is Britain Racist? By the time presenter Mona Chalabi was having her hand stroked to convince her she had a black arm or by the time she had trawled a pub asking blokes if they found particular women attractive, I began to get the feeling that sometimes, asking the question is just about enough.

I'm not really sure what the programme actually concluded. It had three "undercover" reporters. A Muslim playing a Muslim, a Jew playing a Jew and a black man playing a black man. It's not the sort of 'undercover' journalism I had expected.

After a while, I kind of wished I had watched the Rooney documentary on BBC1 instead. There is, after all, one burning question that the whole nation would like to have put to that young man..

Instead I persevered because I could sense a mate of mine in Bradford was in his back garden banging his head against a brick wall over not just missed opportunities, but so many doughnuts taking ages to get eaten.

Taking a racist to Upton Park didn't really prove much, nor did going to an EDL rally prove much other than that some racists don't get a lot of loving and some quite obviously drink too much.

How will BBC3 fare tonight with Britain First remains to be seen. I do feel like I have said all there is to say and remain salient on that front. I could spend all of my day trawling their Facebook page comparing limited signs of sensitive life against signs of obscene idiocy and stupidity-and some do, or I could simply warn others that no other party has ever been so exaggerated about in the history of the internet.

Yes, Britain First are unpleasant. Yes, they have close to a million likes on Facebook, and yes, they have the most bizarre and unpleasant beliefs and modus operandi.

They have done just about everything possible to gain notoriety, including popping lots of diet pills and vodka and driving their armoured vehicles around East London looking for a punch up with Anjem Choudary.

Worryingly, they have also tried to start racial and religous conflict by invading Mosques. They've pulled back from this, because, well, things like Rotherham have been too much of a gift for them. But then, no-one in Rotherham voted either Britain First or BNP at the last election.

Britain First are not going to win any elections, and I do not even think they are the most dangerous of British political far-right parties. In fact, of late, they are somewhat of a busted flush continuing to run up and down the country living on the same old lies and fears that we have about our country being racist, religiously intolerant, a bit backwards, insular, unsure of itself etc, etc.

One of the finest lies about Britain First is that it has 6,000 members. Repeat that lie often enough and the soar-away Sun and the BBC will repeat it for you.

Founded in 2011 by Jim Dowson, Britain First has an evangelical hatred of multicultural Britain. It believes it is not racist and will of course, swear that it is not. Having a conversation with them about the many things they get wrong is utterly pointless. Their founder found them so bad for business, that he upped and left them. Then came back again, and has left again.

There's not a lot Britain First will not do for a few quid and they're quite unashamed about it. They'd stick a poppy on a dog turd if they thought they could flog it.

They have numerous different scales of membership, but even so, they linger at around 2,000 paid up members, but in realistic terms, they're not that much bigger than the tiny British National Party (BNP) when it comes to actively engaged members. Most of those near one million likes on Facebook are paid for or gained by deceit, and their Twitter feed has a very modest and more honest 4,000 followers. I explained that here.

But all the press, the publicity and exaggeration that follows our Mosque invaders is enough to keep them happy, ticking over and sending begging letters to curious followers. The Huffington Post seems to report every time Britain First does something outrageous or stupid. It's getting to the point now that if Paul Golding or Jayda Fransen forget to flush the loo, it's guaranteed a horrified blog.

Last week it was said that Britain First wanted to hang their opponents. This was just as the party announced their leader Paul Golding was planning to run for London Mayor.

The problem is, I may even be wrong, but I cannot find any record of them actually saying that. They said they wanted to hang traitors to this country. I oppose them, but I am not a traitor to Britain. I pay my taxes and observe Remembrance Sunday with more dignity than any fascist does.

Britain First even thanked everyone for the publicity. They should do. They are small, they are nasty, but they are not the test as to whether Britain is a racist country or not. That is an institutional question, not a question for blokes in pubs.
