D-Day approaches for rival NF factions

The Northern National Front faction

Like their bastard spawn the British National Party, the National Front (NF) is also in a terrible state.

One of the world’s oldest hate organisations, the NF experienced a split in 2013 which led to a ‘Northern’ faction and an ‘Official’ Faction fighting for control of the party name.

At the end of last year, the Official NF, led by London based Ian Edward, were informed by the Electoral Commission that his faction would have to re-apply to use the name National Front after the frustrated northern faction pestered the commission to adjudicate on the issue.

The two groups had already gone to war for more than a year, with allegations of computer hacking and threats of violence. They narrowly avoided bumping into each other at the cenotaph last November when both factions had their own marches.

Although the Commission is not expected to announce its decision until tomorrow, the Northern faction, led by Kev Bryan, has already begun announcing that they will be standing NF candidates at the 2015 General Election, which will be sure to antagonise both the other NF faction and the Electoral Commission further.

Jumping the gun?
