Meet the ASBO thug behind anti-Roma campaign

Bristow: Probably stole the flag, too

Who remembers Clint Bristow? He was the lovable rogue arrested for burglary whilst standing as the English Defence League (EDL) endorsed candidate in the Rotherham by-election in November 2012.

Clint, whose real name is Brian Bristow, came last with 29 votes. He stood as an independent as the EDL has never been registered as a political party, but he had the support of the group during the campaign; they smashed up at least two pubs in their crusade against Islam/immigrant crime/tourism etc, etc on his behalf.

Less than two weeks after his humiliation, he was arrested and later convicted for stealing toiletries during a burglary in Bridlington.

It was just one of a number of convictions accumulated by the law abiding patriot in his war against foreign criminals. Back in 2011 he was put on an ASBO after more violence directed at Muslims.

Bristow has surfaced in the last week as one of the people behind the anti-Roma campaign failing to grip Hexthorp in Yorkshire by the EDL.

The group claims that “hexthorpe (sic) has a massive and growing problem with the never ending influx of roma (sic) there are becoming no go areas in parks etc for locals”.

Whether this is true or not is a mystery. But as this whole story about Roma originated from the Daily Mail there’s probably a chance that single mothers, lesbians, French people and a Polish builder are living there too.

Bristow is on a five year ASBO, which prohibits him from EDL activities. I’m sure once reminded of this, the powers that be will be looking into the continuing hateful activities of Bristow.

And we are nothing if not public spirited.
