A picture postcard from Blackpool

Matthew Collins - 26 04 15

Police in Blackpool had to stop a far-right St George’s Day march in Blackpool yesterday after it descended into chaos after antifascists blocked their route.

Around 150 fascists from the EDL, National Front and North West Infidels were stopped from finishing their drunken parade having only marched a short way.

There were sporadic clashes for up to an hour afterwards as the gang of thugs soiled the national flag they claim to honour with Nazi salutes and general thuggery aimed at ordinary members of the public.

One person who is not popular is Welsh nazi and football hooligan Joe Marsh. Not for the first time he let his comrades down by going to a pub and getting drunk instead of fighting on the sea front.

They seek him here...

They seek him here…
