Dewsbury EDL Caught Out Again

Matthew Collins - 04 10 12

Back in June we ran an article that reported how Dewsbury EDL had been caught out telling lies about fictitious child abductions.

It was a disgusting attempt to recruit potential supporters to attend their Dewsbury protest that took place in the town in the same month.

The EDL’s Dewsbury division started a rumour about Muslim men attempting to abduct two young girls from the local area of Kirklees and claimed that the local population had been forced to keep quiet regarding the abductions.

However, it was all a set of lies from the EDL.

One of the alleged incidents was not reported to the police and the other incident reported was that of a 10 year old girl who had contacted the police after a van driver had tried to talk to her. The girl could not describe the driver and did not say he was of Asian appearance.

Well, Dewsbury EDL have been caught telling fibs yet again, this time regarding a proposed extension to a small mosque in the town.

Dewsbury EDL claimed on their Facebook page that Kirklees Council have given the Westborough based mosque permission to extend the building.

However, Kirklees Council have confirmed that the bid hasn’t even been considered yet and has been recommended for refusal.

A council spokeswoman confirmed that the claims of the EDL are simply not true and that the proposal was to go before the planning committee in December.

Can we suggest that Dewsbury EDL rename themselves Pinoccchio Division ?
