Mr Golding, are your pants on fire?

How some people in Northern Ireland view Britain First

Enough has been said already about the lies and dodgy dealings of Britain First. The group believes it is at war in places like Luton and the door steps of their factional rivals.

Their street leader, Paul Golding, has caused outrage and hurt to the family of Lee Rigby by using his name for his hate campaign in Wales. He has also raised the ire of military charities and people in Southend, Essex, by confusing them with a campaign to raise funds for his hate group but confusing people into thinking he represents a charity raising money for members of the armed forces, not his own gain.

Golding is standing in Wales at the European elections. He has given an address in Comber, Northern Ireland as his home address. HOPE not hate are aware of the address and can confirm the currently empty property is owned by Jim Dowson, Golding’s mentor.

When Golding was arrested by anti-terror police in January of this year, Britain First reported that Golding was arrested at home, in Kent, England where he had once been a councillor.

In 2012 it was reported that Golding was flying to Northern Ireland to visit the “Flag Protests” there. And again, it was reported in November 2013 that Golding had once more travelled to Northern Ireland to address a protest meeting on behalf of Dowson, who cannot even go and get a packet of biscuits at the moment without the PSNI making sure he is not within 100 metres of decent, ordinary people.

It does make one wonder, if Mr Golding has been entirely honest about where he is actually living as there has been no actual sign of him actually living in Comber for nearly two years.

He does visit regularly, normally with a bucket as he and Jim try to con Unionist folk into giving them money.
