Fash get over excited…

Matthew Collins - 18 04 16

Last week I mentioned how serial gob Paul Prodromou was planning to help with the regeneration of Dover by holding a two day racist festival.

The festival, which Prodromou is calling ‘Rock Against Immigration’ (yes, I know…) is supposed to, in his words, “help local business by spending the whole weekend in Dover.”

Prodromou: The unlikely racist...

Prodromou: The unlikely racist…

Yes, he is the brightest spark in the world. Not. Prodromou, who was brought up in Cyprus, claims that the media from his event will also help the town recover from the last time lots of Nazis went and threw bricks at the police there. I don’t even think he is kidding. He and his ilk have a long track record of harassing and assaulting journalists.

The bands that are playing at the event on 28th May include ‘Redneck 88’, ‘Section 88’, ‘March or Die’ and ‘Gentlemen Thugs’. So as you can imagine, there’s not really much chance of this helping rejuvenate anything in Dover other than the Wetherspoons and whoever down there sells industrial solvents.

There was a similar gig held in Falkirk on Saturday. Is this what they really have lined up to help Dover?

The only fly in Prodromou’s ointment is the do being organised by Joe Turner aka Joe Marsh for the town on April 23rd. Turner, who is Welsh, is organising a St George’s Day bash and he and Prodromou are privately none-too-friendly after Marsh did not bother to turn up to a punch-up Marsh had arranged at a non-league football match last year. Since then, the two have been bitter, sworn enemies but have tried to remain polite in public. But it appears Marsh has moved closer to Dover to be near a woman he met on line and is none too happy that Prodromou organised his own festival.

In the words of Marsh (real name Turner) “it doesn’t matter if I organise a St George’s Day bash because at least I am white.” I wonder who he was referring to there?
