Silence: The EDL go silent when it is one of their own

A member of the EDL was in court on Friday charged with possession of Level 1 images of children as young as ten years old, and a video recording of another child that was rated as Level 4.

Matthew Woodward had been living in Derby, but had also lived in Doncaster as well as Deeside.

You may not have heard about this case, as the EDL and the BNP decided not to protest against this man.

According to embarrassed EDL members who are desperately trying to keep this case quiet, Matthew Woodward was a well known member of the EDL and a regular at their demonstrations. He was a keen user of internet aliases to also attack Muslims and antifascists too.

He was given 120 hours community service and a five year residential order. Other information relating to this case we are unable to publish at the moment, but we shall be bringing you the story as soon as possible.
