All hail the idiots

Uniform: Britain’s newest fascist group want to stand out this summer…

Sometimes it’s hard to be a fascist. There’s just so few of you, but so many different groups going around, how are you ever to make yourself stand out?

One of the big problems is also how you are meant to recognise a fellow traveller. Former BNP organiser Gary Raikes has decided to make it simple: Design a uniform so that lads and lasses of the persuasion can identify each other more easily.

Now running the “New British Union”, Raikes is selling this fetching uniform to his followers via facebook. Seriously! They have serious designs on…. power?

The group declares that “at the present uniforms will be only worn in private meetings or at private events”, so the chances of seeing someone dressed like this at the food counter at Sainsbury’s is slim. However, if you do attend a friend’s party and there’s a lot of people hanging around in the kitchen dressed like this, you’ll know it’s a fascist party.

Gary’s been desperate for a bit of publicity since he quit Britain First last year to start his Blitzkrieg flop.

 Now he’s been made to look a complete idiot, perhaps he’ll stop sending us information by second class post?
