Jeal: Candidate for law and order

A judge today sentenced a gang of Mosque burglars to 22 years in prison. One of those sentenced is Darren Jeal, the BNP candidate for Higher Croft ward in Blackburn and Darwin in 2011.

Jeal was one of a gang that operated in East Lancashire breaking into Mosques as reported in today’s Lancashire Telegraph. A number of other members of the gang have links to the EDL and its affiliates. They denied in court that they were motivated by either religious or racial hatred.
