Far right thug Myles Davies has escaped jailed after punching his partner as she gave birth to his child in a Telford hospital.

The Shropshire Star reported that Davies, of Whitchurch, avoided a further custodial sentence after the court heard he had already served six months on remand.

This was despite his conviction in March last year for punching a man in face, saying he had disrespected his football firm, the English Border Force. He then told the court he had hit the man as hard as he could and showed no remorse.

He was given a 14 month jail sentence.

Astonishingly, it was also despite his conviction in 2012 for his role in a violent clash in Lancashire. This had seen members of the English Defence League’s (EDL) Blackburn Division descend on an Asian MEP’s house. Trouble flared and 12 EDL members were subsequently convicted. The judge had described them as having acted “like a pack of animals.”

Lennon, incidentally has had his own run in with the law this week after turning up at Canterbury Crown Court to display his journalistic skills. He is reportedly now on bail. We can comment no further.

Davies initially failed to appear in court alongside his Lancashire partners in violent crime. When he did show up, he escaped the custodial sentence he had expected.

That he did not receive further jail time for his latest offence is remarkable. Offensive even.

Not only did he attack her in the delivery room, but the next day assaulted her at home.

That attack left her bruised and with a broken wrist.

He’d objected to the noise she made when rocking their child’s cradle.

He later admitted to common assault and actual bodily harm.

We’ve reported on some shocking crimes committed by far right bully boys and their love of harassing women. This one is off the scale in terms of its sickening brutality.

We hope that the opportunity exists for the sentence to be reviewed.

Remember, it is the likes of Davies’ EDL that like to say they protest in defence of women. They do not. Only recently their spokesman, Ian Crossland, could be found joking about rape.
