Far-right round up

Micky Bayliss: Doing some serious flag business in Manchester tomorrow

Unsurprisingly, Nick Griffin did not show his face at the Oxford Union last night. Instead, George Hargreaves of the Christian Party spoke.

Hargreaves is no stranger though. Hargreaves and Griffin both used to hire the “Truth truck” when it was for hire from the dubious Jim Dowson, the man who seems to own just about everything and everyone to do with the far-right in this country at the moment. Hargreaves last came to our attention back in 2010 when he made what could have been a disastrous intervention in the General Election, so nearly disastrous that it could have helped Nick Griffin get elected.

Some uncharitable locals even suggested that the BNP had helped with the electoral deposits for the Christian Party in both the Barking and Dagenham seats.

BNP leader Griffin has been feeling a little out of the loop lately by all accounts. BNP insiders tell us that he has been having a few problems with some of his head office staff and among those currently sulking with Griffin include Patrick Harrington and Adam Walker, two of the more notorious Griffin sycophants of recent times.

Without those two chiwawas following the Fuhrer around telling him how wonderful he is, poor old Nick may well regret the decision to put himself on a national speaking tour in February. The ten date tour includes an afternoon session in the South West on the 10th Feb. For those who don’t know, Nick visits some special friends when in the South West and performs for them privately and like a monkey, for a few quid. No doubt Clive “Rodney” Jefferson will be absent from this meeting as Griffin has been feeling that “Rodney” already knows where too many bodies are buried already.. Oh yes, we know everything..

With so many of what is left of the EDL in prison or awaiting sentencing, one has to ask whether Darrell Copeland from Bletchley in Milton Keynes hasn’t stumbled upon a unique way of beating the law. Darrell was charged with Section 4 Public Order offences, using threatening words or behaviour, at an EDL demo in Norwich last November.

Darrell’s latest ruse of inventing witnesses is, I suppose, a more preferable way of beating the law than Darrell’s last attempt..

For those heading to Manchester tomorrow for the ‘flag’ demonstration, keep an eye out for the EDL’s Mick Bayliss. Judging by this picture taken today, he’s really looking forward to his day in the snow. Bayliss is organising the EDL contingent on the day. Here he models his ex-wife’s undies in a picture he thinks will humiliate her!
