North West Nazis back behind bars

Shane “Diddyman” Calvert: Nazi drug dealer and sex pest

People may well recall how last year seven members of Nazi gang called the “Infidels” were jailed for a cowardly attack on a father and his two sons in Liverpool town centre.

The Nazis claimed that their three victims were part of some elite antifascist gang, but in fact, it was a father with his son meeting his other son who had just finished playing a gig with his band.

One of the Nazi hardmen did a runner so missed sentencing. However, Michael Kearns, 41, of Liverpool, Liam Pinkham, 24, Wallasey, Merseyside, Shane Calvert, 31, of Blackburn, Peter Hawley, 53, of Blackburn, Matthew Coates, 22, Southport and Steven Dumont, 18, of Liverpool all pleaded guilty to violent disorder and were sent to prison.

Most of the gang were released last month having served a fraction of their sentences. One of the gang got it quite easy in prison given his admitted predilection for sex with underage teenagers. Such is the life of a Nazi.

It’s now been confirmed that Calvert and Hawley were returned to prison last week- and Calvert will not be out before he has served his full sentence-some time around Christmas.

Calvert is the leader of the gang as well as the supplier of designer drugs to most of the Nazis in the north west. He likes to go by the name “Diddyman”, however, we have preferred to call him “Diddyboy” on account of him being a silly little boy. His favourite past time has been assaulting woman photographers-groping them at every opportunity.

He won’t be missed by any decent people. All attention now turns to Stockport to see if any other members of the gang think they’re brave enough to try and pick up where they left off.

It’ll be particularly interesting to see if two in particular turn up at the British Movement party in East Yorkshire this weekend

Hawley: Pride of a nation, apparently
