Golding & Fransen: Half of Britain First

Fresh from standing outside curry houses and attempting to stop people enjoying a good meal, Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen will be in the High Court this Friday trying to fight an attempt by the police in Luton, banning them from the town for 12 months.

The police have taken the rather unusual step after consultation with the local community in Luton. The police have also been guided by others forces experience in dealing with Britain First. The considered opinion is that the group has no real base of support, few off-line activists and yet pose a greater threat to disorder than even the English Defence League (EDL) who marched there on a number of occasions, once with close to 4,000 supporters.

Ever since Britain First announced they were going to march in Luton on the 27th of this month their social media has been in overdrive trying to build their activity. On the streets, Golding even filmed himself being attacked in the town after he drove around telling locals to “go back to the desert.”

This Friday the police will ask that not only are Golding and Jayda Fransen banned from visiting the town, they also stop producing materials, blogs and videos that may cause alarm or distress.
