Some EDL clarification…

Alan Spence: Full of racist pedigree

Following yesterday’s blog, it’s right to clarify a couple of things. Ian Crossland is apparently, the EDL’s ‘Spokesman’ and Alan Spence from Newcastle, is actually the group’s leader.

Spence, who used to be a bodyguard for former British National Party (BNP) leader Nick Griffin, is well schooled in thuggery.

A couple of years ago, we reported how Spence was pinpointing local mosques in Newcastle.

It didn’t take long for some wag to start an appeal for £5000 to pay Crossland’s legal fees from an outstanding court case. Surely, it wasn’t really Crossland himself?

This would've been silly...
