Lennon: Probably worried about Golding's speech

Lennon: Probably worried about Golding’s speech

On 12th June, English Defence League (EDL) founder Stephen Lennon (aka Tommy Robinson) and Britain First leader Paul Golding will share a platform in a debate organised by The Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA).

The debate will centre on the question ‘Does Islam clash with British values?’ Joining Lennon and Golding will be Anne Marie Waters, who stood as a UKIP candidate at the recent General Election. Oh yes, she also runs ‘Sharia Watch’, because as we all know, Sharia law is being widely implemented across the UK and even led to a fire on Coronation Street.

According to a report in last year’s Daily Telegraph, there have been allegations of Anti-Semitism levelled against the iERA-probably by the Daily Telegraph.

So, why is iERA asking three people that have no mandate with the British people, speak for nobody and hold no elected positions in British life- and are widely derided for their views by mainstream society, for their opinions on the subject?

Golding: No lie too big in the quest for cash

Who knows. They’re only charging fifteen quid to hear Lennon rant about anything other than his criminality, violence, drug and fraud convictions (which had nothing to do with Islam) or Golding try and defend ripping off military charities.

By the way, Rainham is generally cosindered to be more Essex, than London.
