Gil Gould aka Mick Wittman

On Monday over 1 million people lined the streets of London to celebrate our successful athletes who competed in the Olympics and the Paralympics.

One couldn’t help but feel great pride and inspiration from our competitors, in particular the marvellous achievements of all those who competed in the Paralympics.

However, large sections of the far right chose to mock the disabled competitors rather than celebrate them.

Over the past fortnight, Facebook has been awash with sick jokes mocking the Paralympic athletes.

I’m not going to reproduce them here as quite frankly they are disgusting.

Gil Gould, a leading EDL activist from Essex was one of the worst offenders and seem to take great pleasure in belittling those with disabilities.

Gould who collects Nazi memorabilia, uses the name of his hero Mick Wittman on Facebook.Wittman was a German SS tank commander credited with killing large numbers of British troops duing World War 2.
