Far-right thinks kidnapping and terrorism will cure Britain

Guns: But is this Luxton-Mayfield’s real name?

One set of extremists always encourage the other extreme. The news today that the “very dangerous” Abu Qatada cannot be deported has set off the predictable cycle of threats of violence from the far-right.

Unsurprisingly, leading the way in outrage was Paul Prodromou who uses the name Paul Pitt to fit in with his racist friends.

One of Prodromou’s friends is former Essex EDL man Mark McCourt, who suggests kidnapping Qatada during one of many irate and dangerous suggestions people have posted on Prodromou’s Facebook wall.

Another poster is Bryan Luxton-Mayfield. Mayfield feels the use of guns and bombs could be the only way forward for the “Counter-Jihad” movement.

Luxton-Mayfield now lives in Gillingham with his wife and is a former admin for the EDL’s Kent Division on facebook. He’s a regular poster on the websites of Britain First and is currently demanding a demonstration in Gillingham against a proposed Mosque.

These corrupted “patriots” are in fact, just as mad, bad and dangerous as the people they think that they are opposing.

Were they Muslim teenagers however, the chances are, the police would be arresting them for what they have written.

Earlier today we read about three teenagers in Leicestershire who could well be acting on those very sort of words: https://www.hopenothate.org.uk/news/article/2636/loughborough-teenagers-in-court-on-terrorism
