Is it pay day, already?

Who could forget the time when a half empty coach from Gateshead in the North East carrying EDL supporters had a minor prang on its way to Preston for a rally?

The coach, which carried twenty five EDL supporters, finally made it to Preston where the EDL had running battles with the police for the rest of the day.

The little prang later made national news headlines when despite only twenty five EDL supporters being on the coach, a staggering seventy eight people made claims for whiplash allegedly suffered while on the journey!

The coach hire firm, Caris Coaches from Gateshead, were not happy. They even suggested some EDL supporters were attempting insurance fraud (heaven forbid!!)

Well, Flag day appears to have arrived for Mark Walls from Gateshead. We have no idea what he is claiming for, but let’s hope he’s not suffering from any long term injuries. If he was, it would make the dozens of photographs we have of him on EDL demonstrations appear like cruelty on our part.

Walls: Claim is moving forward.Lucky thing.
