Convicted thug and pavement rustler Jim Dowson has thrown caution to the wind and come out in support of Polish immigration to the United Kingdom.
The man who formerly owned the British National Party (BNP) and founded Britain First has been waxing lyrical about the wonders of his Polish neighbours!
Jim likes them, because at the least the one he knows, threw a brick at a Policeman in Northern Ireland during the flag protests. While Dowson's erstwhile colleagues are out attacking Poles in Belfast on a regular basis, Dowson has suddenly declared a great love for them. In finding love for Polish people, Dowson has described millions of other British people as "dole scrounging, Jeremy Kyle sponging arseholes.." Ouch. Is that really the way to describe Britain First?
Dowson has really taken a liking to the East. Recently he was drooling over an unclothed Russian President, describing him as a "real man", as Dowson and a host of other far-right extremists quaffed Vodka and tripe in St Petersburg. It's not Dowson suddenly ditching his homophobia and other embedded hatreds, so there must be a few quid in it for him somewhere.
So taken with Russians, Germans and Poles is Dowson all of a sudden, he also recently told a meeting in Belfast that he would "rather have heterosexual, white, Christian Poles" living there, than "black, Somali Muslims." Being the Christian sort that he is, Dowson appears to have ditched his UKIP key rings and now wants to give them away for free! Well, the postage does happen to be a bit ball-breaking, but you cannot have everything!
The word on the streets of Gdansk is that Dowson has decided to throw his lot in with a chase for Roubles and Zloty and as well as contact with the Russian Orthodox church, has now opened a dialogue in person with Polish anti-abortionists and anti-gay groups. Where there is hate, there is money. And to be fair, Dowson has totally bled the far-right here out of pounds and pence. It's believed he billed Britain First a four figure sum to turn up at their training weekend in Coventry last week, where the activists present vented their empty pockets with hatred directed at Poles, Hungarians and Lithuanians- much to 'Jimbo's' chagrin.
Dowson was recently the centre of a bit of a puff-piece on Russian Orthodox television where he was described as some kind of patriotic, lifesaving messenger from God!
Perhaps Jim would like to make contact with Narodowe Odrodzenie Polski (National Rebirth of Poland) which is usually abbreviated to NOP. This group has been seen at various Golden Dawn demos in London with National Action as well at the White Man March that NA organised in Newcastle back in March.
One of those Dowson should try and hook up with is Krzysztof Tempczyk. He's an active member of NOP and the above photo was taken in Manchester at the recent White Pride World Wide march. He is also a member of a seemingly successful Polish pop band called Soleo!
The band's YouTube channel has had over 5 million views which mean Krzysztof is in the surprising position of being one of the most successful far-right musicians the British far-right will have ever seen!

According to the Express & Star newspaper, outraged former servicemen are to conter-protest a march by Britain First next month in the town of Dudley in the West Midlands.
Apparently, the old soldiers are outraged at Britain First's "use of images of Lee Rigby and that his family would not approve. They are also unhappy that Britain First sells pin badges bearing the image of the poppy."
This is all well and good. However, the newspaper then claims that "More than 2,000 members of the far right group [Britain First] are expected to protest over plans to build a new mosque in the town."
Two thousand? Where on earth did the (nameless) journalist get this figure from? Britain First's last march was to support their parliamentary candidate in Rochester last year. On that occasion only 49 people turned up-which is only seven fewer than the amount of votes she got.
The Sun newspaper, probably smarting from having to cover some tits up for a few days at the time, reported not long after the Rochester march, that despite only having 49 marchers turn up in Kent, that Britain First had 8,000 members and Kent was, surprisingly, their stronghold.
We've already dealt with how Britain First manipulates social media. Today they have some 800,000 likes on their Facebook page. Most of whom live on the Indian Sub-Continent and like Justin Beiber and are purchased in lots of 5,000 for next to nothing.
The last protest in Dudley was in February of this year, when over 500 people protested with the EDL. That was the biggest EDL march/protest for some years. The West Midlands does tend to have the highest turn out for far-right protests and Britain First knows this. If they are lucky, however, and because it is the West Midlands, there will be closer to 300 people at the Britain First march and nowhere near the 2000 the newspaper states.
Most of the other 799,700 of Britain First's followers would probably be denied visas to enter the country. And wouldn't that be ironic?
Perhaps the paper should check the last time they reported on a Britain First demonstration in the town? That time there was a mighty five people there.
Understandably, local traders in Dudley are very nervous that once more they will have to close up for the day. The newspaper has been around to tell them of the coming storm of 2000 far-right marchers.
If you ask me, the newspaper has done as much to harm local trade and business as has the EDL and Britain First.
Tonight Britain First are meeting in Cumbernauld, Scotland. If they are thinking of practising their flute playing there, they're about five miles away from home..

Another week of violent failure for the far-right came to a head in Blackpool on the weekend, when the National Front (NF) got in all a huff with the dregs of what used to be the English Defence League (EDL). The two groups shared a drunken and embarrassing thirty yard shuffle along the seafront. It was meant to be a march for St George and England, though somehow it ended up with nazi flags and racist songs before the idiots were told to go back to the pub by the local constabulary.
It didn't take too long before things turned nasty between the two groups. The NF were furious with the EDL's organising capabilities, but as they all still managed to get pissed in a pub, I'm pretty certain that the EDL managed to organise what they set out to do.
One of those who was unimpressed by the organisation of the day was Jackboot jack, the Jew-hating Manchester University student who failed to sell a single piece of the shoddy merchandise he took with him for the day.
The two groups are now excitedly bragging that they managed to attack a woman photographer. St George would no doubt be so proud..
For the British National Party (BNP), their election campaign in Rotherham continues to draw few of the party's activists to help it. This Saturday the party has a three line whip, which may excite Patrick Harrington, but few others. Last weekend there was less than six of the lost souls out trying to start a race war. The party's fake 'Reverend' Robert West, may have his own Cathedral in his outhouse, but he still has to be photographed on the steps of real churches for his publicity shots.
Now West faces a disciplinary committee over comments he made while teaching. Poor Robert also faces the embarrassment of being represented by Patrick Harrington. The party's Chairman, Adam Walker has offered his "prayers" for the fake Reverend, who faces a lifetime ban from teaching.
That Walker is praying for the fake Rev is more than a tad amusing. Harrington represented Walker when he too faced a disciplinary board as a teacher. Walker is himself, banned from life from teaching.
The BNP also suffered another minor split last week when the two love birds ensconced in the head office had an "unconscious uncoupling", apparently.
No doubt we should expect Harington to be back in another tribunal soon if the rumours are right and he has to defend the party again, on allegations of sexual harassment and unfair dismissal.

Police in Blackpool had to stop a far-right St George's Day march in Blackpool yesterday after it descended into chaos after antifascists blocked their route.
Around 150 fascists from the EDL, National Front and North West Infidels were stopped from finishing their drunken parade having only marched a short way.
There were sporadic clashes for up to an hour afterwards as the gang of thugs soiled the national flag they claim to honour with Nazi salutes and general thuggery aimed at ordinary members of the public.
One person who is not popular is Welsh nazi and football hooligan Joe Marsh. Not for the first time he let his comrades down by going to a pub and getting drunk instead of fighting on the sea front.

I know it is an old joke about fascists making the trains run on time, but it seems our domestic fascists would be incapable.
Their Fuhrer Kevin 'Kev' Bryan is having some trouble in getting his election address to the post office on time for distribution to the electorate in Rochdale.
So, desperate Kev has had to make an urgent appeal to get his hate mail off to the Royal Mail. He's even got people leaving work at the chippy early to get over to his house to help him do the job right.
It makes you wonder how these people really would function in government, or, how do these idiots even manage to tie the laces on their large boots.
He cannot get his leaflets done on time, but Kev did manage to get ejected from the hustings the other night after turning up uninvited. Perhaps he should have been at home sorting out his election materials?
I get the impression he will fail. Plus, there's always the question as to whether the postal workers will even want to deliver a load of racist junk, anyway.

Jim Dowson, the founder of Britain First has been convicted at a Belfast court today and given a suspended sentence on three counts relating to the Northern Ireland 'flag' protests.
Dowson, who was once dubbed the man who "owned the BNP", was spared community service after the judge heard he lives under permanent threats from two unnamed sources-one thought to be Islamic terror group(s) and the other dissident Republicans.
Dowson had pleaded guilty to three charges at an earlier hearing, where bizarrely, there appeared to be no onus on the prosecution to provide any evidence against Dowson.
The court head that although the 'flag' protests had been violent, Dowson had not been involved in any violence, but had led three "processions" without notifying the police of his intention to do so.
Dowson's defence insisted that he should, in fact, be given credit for asking for the violence to halt.
The defence was obviously ignorant of this incident in January 2013, that was reported here exclusively by us.

The British National Party (BNP), enjoyed a rare moment in the spotlight this week when the whole world and his dog stopped to pass comment that they appear to be a rather lot smaller than they were this time five years ago, when the party stood 338 candidates at the General Election, gaining half a million votes.
It must have come as quite a shock to the commissioning editors, as not six months ago we were flooded with stories about how large the far-right was in this country.
Time and time again when it has come to seeing what the far-right in this country looks like when not behind their computer screens the evidence has suggested that it is small. But still, very, very nasty.
Back in 2010 the BNP was within a whisker of taking not just control of one London council but even, perhaps, gaining a seat in parliament. They failed to do either and by the time Nick Griffin was collecting the "dead bodies" from the floor of the count in Barking and Dagenham, the party was already split.
The BNP's failure came because they lost a hard fought battle. Fair play to them, they took their nastiness far and whenever they could, under Griffin at least until 2010, they played by the rules. They hid their outright and sheer nastiness and nazism not just from a sizeable chunk of the electorate (one million votes in 2009) but also a large chunk of their membership. Nick Griffin had long stopped banging on and on about Jews and Jewish conspiracies; instead, he took to parading himself around the country with a pint in hand and speaking about boring things like housing and jobs. Obviously it was still racist nonsense, but for some who fell for it, the BNP was a bit more like UKIP than an out and out Jew hating bunch of nazis.
Those first people to gain from the BNP splitting was the English Democrats (EDs). Some 400 BNP members jump shipped to them, including Eddy Butler and Chris Beverley, both employees of the BNP and two of the more talented nazis in the party's ranks. In fact, Butler had been widely credited with getting BNP councillors elected around the country by changing the way the BNP campaigned. He was even behind the notorious missive that asked BNP members to cover their tattoos and skinheads when on activities.
Happily, things have not gone too well for either Butler or Beverley in the EDs. The EDs was more of a private dinner club for people who did not like the Irish or the Scottish and though they rode a similar crest to the BNP in 2010 in that they managed to put up 107 parliamentary candidates of their own, this time they themselves are down to 32 candidates, including a rather non-too committed Butler who is himself, hoping that UKIP wins in his seat (even though he knows it is unlikely).
The demise of the English Democrats would be worth an investigation-if you didn't actually already know them. Over the past twelve months we have witnessed an enormous rise in the profile and coverage of the Scottish National Party (SNP). The party, it's leader and policies are well documented on the centre stage of British politics. It would seem apparent that the SNP will have some say in who is the next Prime Minister of the country. The English too have never been short of nationalism. But unlike the SNP or their Welsh counterparts Plaid Cymru, the English do not appear to have a progressive voice. Not only are the English Democrats obsessively racist, they do not appear even particularly serious about anything much other than boozing and abusing. If there were awards given for worst party political broadcast ever, they'd win that, but not a lot else. Spurned opportunities, most definitely? Offering to sell other countries in the union, probably does not help.
The National Front (NF) has managed only one less candidate than the BNP. This is despite the promise at the end of last year that the NF would field twenty candidates. Instead, the NF has managed seven candidates for the General Election and a further two council candidates.
Despite picking up a few new members after the BNP's most recent split last year, the NF has neither the money nor the infrastructure to overstretch itself. The NF has managed to at least print leaflets for their candidates this year. That they have failed to spell or grammar check the leaflets will not particularly bother them too much. Word is that they are desperate to hold merger discussions with the almost totally rudderless British Voice who at least have mild competency in that department.
The only real 'campaigning' the National Front does look like doing in these elections is storming a church hall in Rochdale this Sunday night because they have not been invited to the hustings.
For the BNP, it is all hands on deck in Rotherham, where their new and disgraced leader is standing. We said back in February that the party would struggle to field candidates. Having only eight candidates means along with the NF's seven and a few even smaller far-right groups, this is the smallest number of far-right candidates to stand in a British General Election since 1987. Just a further twelve candidates for the BNP in the council elections is proof that the party is marooned. Some kind of revamp or name change will be bound to happen soon.
Steve Squire, the ineloquent and growingly Antisemitic pornographer who runs the party into the ground in London told a newspaper this week that the 2010 elections had "nearly killed" the party and that people "had gone to prison" as a result of being in the BNP.
The BNP is pushing heavily a message that the shortage of candidates is not a retreat by them, but some kind of intelligent and tactical strategy and most definitely not a sign of giving up or defeat. Pushed further, they blame UKIP for stealing their thunder and their support. Or in Squire's case, Jews.
Certainly from where I sit, UKIP has made the debate on immigration far more widespread, loopy and unpleasant than the BNP ever actually did or could. Partly, I think, it could be because people are not entirely sure if UKIP is driven by BNP-like hatred or just UKIP-like gaffs, guffaws or stupidity.
The last remaining salient hostage in the BNP is the culinary bore and outright boor, Simon Darby. Just to keep Darby on board it is rumoured he got back a large chunk of the £50,000 it is alleged that the party owed him just after Christmas. Where he got fifty grand to lend the party in the first place is one of the oldest and longest surviving questions on the far-right.
Darby let slip his iron mask during the week. "Dudley North is the seat where I obtained nearly 10% of the vote across the constituency a few years back.." he wrote on his blog.
"As I've said before I think we've gone beyond the need for political representation and ventured into the requirement for psychiatric treatment."
Even if you cannot vote for it, fascism still remains a disease.

The British National Party have named their Chairman Adam Walker as the candidate for Rotherham.
The party was desperate to stand in the town and try and capitalise on the dreadful grooming scandal there.
Sadly for the party, the best candidate they could come up with is Walker, who is banned from teaching after getting into his car and chasing after some young boys on bikes who were taunting him. He then terrified the young boys by pulling out a knife and slashing their bicycle tyres.
The court recorder said at the time of Walker's conviction in 2011 that his actions could have "killed the boys."
If Walker is really the best candidate they can put up in a town torn by tragedy, division and recrimination, it really shows how far the party has sunk.
Still, at least it will detract from the 'Nazi Granny' standing for the party in Dagenham.
There is not one party candidate either for parliamentary or the local elections in the whole of Durham, a former stronghold that Walker has helped destroy.

I have said it before and I will say it, again. Paul Weston is our favourite far-right extremist.
Weston is a laugh a minute. From getting drunk and losing his wallet in Stockholm (in the company of the EDL leadership) and claiming he had been the victim of some non-existent Anarchist group- to writing a very important letter to David Cameron about the future of England, he is a man with the best interests of the beleaguered white man at heart.
We once Christened him a "gun for hire", even though he did once claim that by this election, his EDL aligned British Freedom Party would be standing not just for every seat in the House of Commons, but in the House of Lords too!
He began his career in UKIP, and it's been all downhill from there!
He travelled the world telling people what a great bloke Stephen Lennon, the thug and criminal who launched the EDL, was. When Lennon was arrested and held on remand, Weston even got himself arrested for protesting outside of the wrong prison for Lennon's release.
Now Weston is back with a new party (his fourth) for these elections. He is standing in Luton South under the title 'No to Terrorism, Yes to Britain.'
His constant companion in these debacles has been University lecturer George Whale who is standing in Lewisham West.
We're glad you're still with us, Paul. The rest of the Nazis hate you.

Times are desperate for the British National Party (BNP), who appear to have welcomed back to the party Tess Culnane, dubbed the 'Nazi Granny' because she is a Grandmother and a Nazi.
Culnane has been name as the party's candidate for Dagenham.
This may well come as a bit of a shock to the National Front (NF) whom Culnane has been associated of late, to the point where she was highly praised by the Boneheaded leadership last year for her work for the party.
Maybe Culnane saw the quality of the NF's election material before jumping ship?
We're still waiting to hear whether President-elect Joshua Bonehill is going to stand for election this year. Bonehill apparently spent a great deal of time last night singing along to the soundtrack to Disney's Mulan and trying to stop my colleague getting on a plane! Most people drive or get the train from Dublin to Belfast, Master Bonehill!
Bonehill has been struggling to start the white revolution of late due to not having the fifteen pence required to phone the police and report HOPE not hate for reporting on his activities.
You can listen to his desperate call here
If that tickles you, you can listen to him having further discussions here

Earlier this week I blogged about the National Front's promise/bragg last year, that if they won the right to use the name, they would stand 20 candidates at this General Election.
The party's Chairman, Kev Bryan, wrote in angst at the end of last year how "We already have over 20 prospective candidates that will be contesting the General Election and double that amount for the local elections".
I know the NF are not very bright, but it appears they have lost thirteen parliamentary candidates since then and will now have just the seven.
Unsurprisingly, they are actually blaming the other NF faction. Isn't it funny how the story has changed?
The NF parliamentary candidates, other than Bryan who is standing in Rochdale are as follows:
Robert Batten - North Tyneside, North East England
Adam Lloyd - Bridgend, Wales
Richard Edmonds - Carshalton and Wallington, Greater London
Neil McIvor - Linlithgow and East Falkirk, Scotland
Mike Cooper - Hull East, Yorkshire
Christoher Willett -Aberdeen North

For over five years the HOPE not hate Facebook team have ended the evening with a song. Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, sometimes groovy...
Always, whenever possible, it's been topical.
There's been banjos, there's been rap, there's been pop, there's been reggae, there's been punk. There's been Strange Fruit.
There's been arguments, there's been suggestions and even occasionally, the odd outrage. After all, it's only music.
Five years on, we still haven't had Take That or One Direction, but we did have Simon Le Bon one night. For one night only.
Now those clever people that do the 'Goodnight' song have got together and found 22 fantastic tracks by 22 fantastic artists and put them on a CD. Some you will have heard, some you will not have. There's a few up and coming gems on the 'Goodnight' CD as well as firm favourites.
It's coming out in May and all of the monies raised will go back into campaigning against racism and fascism.
We'll be putting the link to buy the album out soon. It's limited edition, so you'll need to get in quick!

It seems that Bonehill has taken to writing unpleasant things about the better halves and female friends of some of Britain's most glorious nazis. The images that accompany some of these attacks are so vulgar that they cannot be shown here.
It's hard to tell which of Golding or Bonehill is the greatest leader of white Britons, having both spent so much money buying in "likes" for their social media enterprises.
Give Golding his dues, however, he does leave the house occasionally, whilst Joshua has managed to defecate in the frozen food section of his local supermarket, and stalk and abuse innocent people he meets on the internet.
The two have never liked each other, and things became rather nasty when Bonehill, Yeovil's most loathsome irritant, discovered a photograph of Golding's current deputy and fulltime squeeze Jayda Fransen and decided that it was evidence that she may have once dated a black man!
Bonehill has even taken to putting in writing what he dislikes about Golding and Fransen. Last year he wrote "his hook-nose draws me to conclude that Mr. Golding is in fact somewhat of Jewish origin.
"The group’s deputy ‘leader’ is some woman with a hook nose by the name of Fransen (another Jewish surname)."
Bonehill is of course, somewhat of a lover-man himself and recently struck up a relationship with someone whom he seems keen to convince he is a popular politician with "lots of fans". Sadly, it traspires now that Bonehill's love interest and the object of his most bizarre desires is not a real person.
His obsession with Golding and Fransen has become very irritating for Golding and he has now instructed his private army to take action against Bonehill's bin! Why? I have no idea, but Bonehill seems obsessed by his bin, that and fabricating a Paul Golding twitter account, to send threats to himself!
A third Fuhrer, the village idiot Dave Jones, has also taken umbrage with Bonehill. He's threatening to break Bonehill's nose after Bonehill also made some outrageous comments about Jones's love life and even called him a grass.
So, let it all happen. Let us pull up a seat and rejoice that it is not some ordinary person or bin being the victim of their hatred for once.

Election fever doesn't really grip the far-right like it used to. Yes, the British National Party (BNP) had a few healthy years in the previous decade, but these days it further highlights their miserable position.
This Thursday, the nominations will close at 4pm and we will have a fair idea of how bad things are. The BNP has been talking down the party's election plans as if it was some kind of clever electoral strategy as opposed to the quite obvious almost complete obliteration of their party.
The BNP stood over 300 candidates in the last General Election just five years later the party looks set to have less than a dozen. It's desperate campaigning strategy began in earnest on the weekend with another potentially enormous con to its few remaining supporters.
The BNP is desperate to stand in Rotherham and the word is that they have secured the signatures required for the nomination and they already have the money. Their main problem is finding a candidate. If the party's Chairman was to stand, on a ticket of "protecting children" well, that would be an absolute gift to anybody who wanted to go to town on the BNP.
Walker has been leader of the BNP now for nearly a year, yet he is still, to my knowledge, to give one interview to the media. The reason for this frustration is of course, he is desperate to avoid questions about his lifetime ban from teaching. He really has been, almost as good for us as Nick Griffin was.
The English Democrats (remember them?) will probably manage the largest number of candidates on the far-right other than UKIP. We do actually class the EDs as "far-right", though more often than not, we also class them as weird. And stupid. Last month's spring conference in York was a real eye opener. But more about that nearer to the election.
It's unlikely that Britain First will be standing any candidates. Candidates cost money (though not as much as the BNP fib) and money is also what is needed for diet pills and vodka. So it's a question of where Britain First's priorities lay. I think you know the answer to that one.
The British Democrats (remember them?) were once tipped to be the next big thing (not by us.) They have limped from one near death experience to another and also one real ale house to another since their inception, but they will definitely have one candidate, maybe two. One candidate definitely standing for them is Jim Lewthwaite. They're probably planning to dig the other one up.
For the National Front, now just the one party and not the two, this is a big year. Few people can take them seriously as a political threat when much of their energy goes into sniffing glue, dealing drugs and dressing in fancy dress. They would prefer to call themselves National Socialists, but the reality is they are little more than Hollywood Nazis. Nasty ones, mind.
Last year as two sets of neo-nazis fought for control of the party, Kev Bryan, leader of the successful northern faction bemoaned "We already have over 20 prospective candidates that will be contesting the General Election and double that amount for the local elections". Whether Bryan was telling the truth or not, we will know this Thursday. Like many, he probably did not think the electoral commission would pass the party in to his hands.
If we're lucky, Liberty GB will brighten things up in a couple of seats for us. But do not expect to see Britain's true leader of the white race, Joshua Bonehill. Josh has been having issues with the police again.

The British National Party (BNP) still-just about, survives. The BNP survives on luck and the belief that its membership has little or no memory, or brains.
Last year, not long after he had taken control of the party, Adam Walker issued an appeal for £5000 so that the BNP could stand in the Police and Crime Commissioner elections in South Yorkshire. The election came on the back of the disgraceful grooming scandal that rocked Rotherham. Like every fascist gang in the country, the BNP had been active in Rotherham trying to make capital from real people's misery. The BNP begged and pleaded their members to keep sending them money, loudly telling the world that the cash for this adventure was rolling in. Then, when the nominations closed, there was no BNP candidate!
Now here we are, some six months later, and the BNP has launched another appeal to stand again, this time in Rotherham for the general election. And again, the BNP wants £5000 from its members. It does not cost £5000 to fight a parliamentary seat. In fact, the BNP raised more than enough to stand in Rotherham with their last appeal. It costs just £500 to stand.
Still, someone's got to make a few quid off of people's misery, haven't they?
The campaign for the party in the North West appears to have hit the ground. And died. Twenty days to go and the party has not raised one penny. Oh dear.
The moronic Britain First (BF) and the micro English Defence League (EDL) faced off on Good Friday outside London Central Mosque in Regent's Park.
It was not a pleasant sight; though it was nice to see Roger Firth back on the front line for the EDL. Firth is currently leading a putsch inside the organisation against the current crop of boozers, brawlers and backstabbers in control of what is left of the gang.
According to the Belfast Telegraph, there were "hundreds" of BF and EDL supporters there. They even had a video that went someway to prove that was a lie. For the record, there were 52 fascists outside the Mosque, up to three hundred if you include (and why not?) the followers of Anjem Choudary.
The EDL could only muster fifteen or so troops and found themselves pushed around by Britain First. The pic below is not of them confronting Choudary, but in fact, each other.
The EDL fared little better the next day, when 500 police officers escorted fifty of the rabble through Oxford. They still managed to assault a police officer, though.
Later that afternoon, Pegida had a little rally in Whitehall that went off rather badly when Eddie Stampton turned up offering his services to the group as it scattered across Westminster once antifascists turned up to counter protest.
Stampton ran to the local pub and locked himself in the toilets until such time his paymasters from the Metropolitan Police could launch a rescue mission. It was all in all, a rather poor weekend for fascists. Despite what the Belfast Telegraph and their ilk try and convince you, the far-right in this country remains nasty, not enormous.
