Hardline racists take issue with hardline Nazis

Spence: Did you spill his pint?

Spence: Did you spill his pint?

Newcastle city centre had a bit of a visit yesterday by the cowards of National Action. Wearing women’s undergarments over their pimply faces, the gang held a banner proclaiming their love of Hitler and hatred of refugees.

They also tried to attack a young man playing a saxophone (apparently it is a Jewish instrument..)

This has very much upset the EDL leader, Alan Spence. Spence is often called “Biffa” after the Viz comic creation Biffa Bacon. He is, as they say, as hard as nails. Particularly if you spill his pint.

Spence later removed the tweet after he was warned it could see his account removed for issuing threats.

Let’s hope this one rumbles on for a long time..
