Southend Calamity

Matthew Collins - 01 12 12

Just keeping an eye on the Britain First anti mosque demo in Southend.

Britain First is the brainchild of James Dowson, the man who was once dubbed ‘the man who owns the BNP’.

Some of the Essex EDL have said they intend to show their faces here despite being ordered by the EDL leadership to attend the overnight protest in Bedford in support of their jailed leader Stephen Lennon aka Tommy Robinson.

Currently only six protesters at the muster point so it can hardly be described as a glowing success. In fact there are more people at the nearby Southend Cycle roadshow than at the protest.

Nick Griffin will no doubt find the whole thing highly amusing, however he wasn’t laughing quite as loud when only 3 BNP members turned up for their protest outside the Royal Courts on Thursday.
