Much excitement for the BNP with them crowing this morning "we're back" after a very reasonable showing in the Rotherham by-election last night.
Still, they don't mention the 1.9% they polled in Middlesbrough or the simple fact they could not even raise a candidate for Croydon North, other by-elections held last night too. Perhaps they're a regional party these days?
The big losers from the far-right in Rotherham were the English Democrats and the English Defence League, the two groups currently being courted by Britain First's dubious Jim Dowson.
Dowson will apparently not be in Southend tomorrow for what looks like a disastrous anti-Mosque rally by his new EDL-style front group "St George's Brigade". The remaining idiots from the EDL have chosen to spend tonight and tomorrow outside of Bedford nick instead, where their popular leader Stephen Lennon is currently holed up. Our Stephen does like to get himself in trouble with the law, so if you are planning to protest outside courts and prisons in support of him, you had better get yourself some sort of discount train ticket. And a passport..
Someone who will not be joining the EDL for pointless protests anymore is Eddie Stampton/Stanton/Stamton after the shenanigans of last week. "Why would I want to attend anymore EDL demos?" he asked us after last week's story. "They are swarming alive with promoters of race-mixing, Jews and Zionist tools" he moaned. Some cynics may well declare that actually means Eddie's been "moved" to new pastures by dark forces. Job done if he also happens to turn up in the Infidels at any stage soon.
Talking of the "Infidels", John "Snowy" Shaw has been complaining that I have a particular picture of him. It could be worse, "Snotty", look at the one I have of your idiot mate Shane Calvert!
And finally, we finished the week off by giving a well deserved spanking to the BNP "union" Solidarity. Some people say that would please their leader Patrick Harrington normally, but not tonight. He has been removing posts from his facebook page in disgust.

Last night was a busy night with parliamentary by election results in Rotherham, Middlesbrough and Croydon North.
In Rotherham, a by election was called following the resignation of Labour MP Denis Macshane.
Rotherham is normally a safe Labour seat but following the resignation of Macshane plus the cover-up of child sexual exploitation and the UKIP fostering scandal it was always going to be a tough task to retain the seat. In the end Labour comfortably held the seat, albeit with a reduced majority, however the battle for 2nd and 3rd was far more interesting.
UKIP's Jane Collins finished in a strong second place with the BNP's Marlene Guest narrowly scraping into 3rd place. The English Democrats, who hoped they would fair well here only managed a poor 6th place.
Most amusing of all was the EDL's candidate Clint Bristow who finished in last place with just 29 votes which equals to a tiny 0.14%.
Nick Griffin has been crowing on Twitter about the BNP's 3rd place, claiming they are back in the game. But let's look closely at the figures.
Yes the BNP finished in a respectable 3rd place but their overall percentage was down nearly 2% on their previous election result here. The BNP prospered from the fact that the Tory and Lib Dem vote collapsed.
Rotherham results in full:
- Sarah Champion (Labour) 9,866 (46.25%, +1.62%)
- Jane Collins (UKIP) 4,648 (21.79%, +15.87%)
- Marlene Guest (BNP) 1,804 (8.46%, -1.96%)
- Yvonne Ridley (Respect) 1,778 (8.34%)
- Simon Wilson (Conservative) 1,157 (5.42%, -11.32%)
- David Wildgoose (English Democrat) 703 (3.30%)
- Simon Copley (Independent) 582 (2.73%, -3.58%)
- Michael Beckett (Liberal Democrat) 451 (2.11%, -13.87%)
- Ralph Dyson (TUSC) 261 (1.22%)
- Paul Dickson (Independent) 51 (0.24%)
- Clint Bristow (Independent) 29 (0.14%)
- Labour majority 5,218 (24.46%)
- 7.13% swing Labour to UKIP
- Turnout: 21,330 (33.63%, -25.37%)
Middlesbrough and Croydon North were far more what we had come to expect from the far right.... abject failure.
In Middlesbrough the BNP's Peter Foreman finished in 6th place and saw their vote plummet nearly 4% on their previous result here. The National Front faired little better in Croydon North with the veteran anti Semite Richard Edmonds finishing in 8th place with a miserly 0.66% of the vote.
Middlesbrough results in full:
- Andy McDonald (Labour) 10,201 (60.48%, +14.60%)
- Richard Elvin (UKIP) 1,990 (11.80%, +8.10%)
- George Selmer (Liberal Democrat) 1,672 (9.91%, -10.00%)
- Ben Houchen (Conservative) 1,063 (6.30%, -12.48%)
- Imdad Hussain (Peace) 1,060 (6.28%)
- Peter Foreman (BNP) 328 (1.94%, -3.90%)
- John Malcolm (TUSC) 277 (1.64%)
- Mark Heslehurst (Independent) 275 (1.63%)
- Labour majority: 8,211 (48.68%)
- 3.25% swing UKIP to Lab
- Turnout: 16,866 (25.91%, -25.44%)
Croydon North results in full:
- Steve Reed (Labour) 15,898 (64.71%, +8.69%)
- Andy Stranack (Conservative) 4,137 (16.84%, -7.28%)
- Winston McKenzie (UKIP) 1,400 (5.70%, +3.97%)
- Marisha Ray (Liberal Democrat) 860 (3.50%, -10.48%)
- Shasha Islam Khan (Green) 855 (3.48%, +1.51%)
- Lee Jasper (Respect) 707 (2.88%, +2.35%)
- Stephen Hammond (Christian Peoples Alliance) 192 (0.78%)
- Richard Edmonds (National Front) 161 (0.66%)
- Ben Stevenson (Communist) 119 (0.48%, +0.17%)
- John Cartwright (Loony) 110 (0.45%)
- Simon Lane (9/11 Was an Inside Job) 66 (0.27%)
- Robin Smith (Young People's) 63 (0.26%)
- Labour majority: 11,761 (47.87%)
- 7.99% swing Conservative to Labour
- Turnout: 24,568 (26.4%, -34.25%)

Watching the EDL splinter is all good fun, especially when they turn on themselves.
One such case happened over the weekend following the poorly attended EDL demo outside Wandsworth Prison.
The EDL met up outside of the prison to protest against the incarceration of their leader Tommy Robinson aka Steven Yaxley Lennon.
One of the organisers of the demo was the London based Maddie Brown and it seems one of her “comrades” is less than happy with her presence in the EDL.
We have written quite a few articles in the past regarding the Neo-Nazi Eddie Stampton. Eddie is a veteran fascist who has aligned himself to just about every far right group going such as the BNP, British Movement and The British People's Party.
And now he has hooked up with the EDL.
Whether he sees the EDL as a genuine cause I'm not so sure, however he certainly sees the EDL as a potential business opportunity, with Stampton regularly seen flogging his cheap and tacky enamel badges at every demo he attends.
Stampton has taken exception to his fellow EDL buddy Maddie Brown and has contacted his old BPP leader Kevin Watmough with information to be posted on Watmough's website Redwatch.
Redwatch collects the names and addresses of people that Watmough disagrees with, then encourages his fellow nazis to target them for abuse, intimidation and violence.
The latest entry into the Redwatch hall of fame is none other than Maddie Brown, under the heading of “EDL Jewess Exposed”.
Watmough describes Brown as an “Avid Zionist” and claims she is from the wealthy Jewish Oppenheimer family.
Describing her as a “vile specimen” Watmough, the brave chap that he is posts her phone number and photograph and asks for further information to post.
Maddie Brown quickly pointed the finger at Stampton and her EDL pals have quickly rallied round, promising Stampton swift retribution if he shows his face at another EDL demonstration.
As I write this blog it seems that Watmough has lost his nerve and removed Browns photo and details claiming that he has received evidence that Brown is in fact not Jewish or an heiress to a South African fortune !
Should sparks fly it could be just a little embarrassing for Stamptons close friend and EDL regional organiser Paul Pitt, who has stood by his friend despite revelations of his Neo-Nazi past.

According to the EDL's pre-publicity, the whole world was going to hear about the plight of their leader, Stephen Lennon.
Sadly for them, not even Lennon could hear them while they were stood outside HMP Wandsworth today. It's fair to say the game is up for the EDL's leader and potentially his next trip to the United States will be in the company of police officers dropping him into the loving arms of Homeland Security.
One of the seven or so EDL splinter groups also made it to London today, but sadly for the English Volunteer Force, we were waiting for their camera shy followers and their plans to demonstrate outside the home of Abu Qatada were scuppered once they were informed he had been moved some ten days ago. More on these super-brains later..
Nick Griffin launched his own version of the EDL yesterday, ingeniously calling the new group of 'vigilantes' the "White Tigers"! I'm not sure which BNP super-brain came up with that idea. My money is on Clive "Rodney" Jefferson with the help of a whole bottle of White Lightning.
Griffin's not letting up on his plan to conquer and lead what is left of the EDL, and he knows he has a real fight on his hands now that Jim Dowson has made the early running.
Not to be out-done, this afternoon's attack on a meeting of the British Democratic Party (formerly known as True Brits) was not as claimed the work of Hope Not Hate's office staff, but more than likely the result of the BNP tipping-off local antifascists where the meeting was being held. Allegedly.
Griffin has also upset the gang of deserters that go by the name of "CxF". Apparently the two groups are tiring of each other's lie and antics already. I guess those fund raising booze and cigarette cruises to Brussels at the tax payers expense are not going to happen now, then?
And finally, John Snowy Shaw could not be found in Ayr today, where his group were supposed to be peddling drugs to locals there. Perhaps people should look for him in the latest disguise Special Branch has assigned him.

The EDL has given up. Their leader did not even hear them sing "Happy Birthday".
Only 100 bothered to show up.

Less than 100 EDL activists have turned up outside Wandsworth Prison to demand the releasde of their leader "Tommy Robinson".
The idiots are obviously unaware that there is nobody either in the prison by that name, or indeed, in the EDL by that name.

The English Volunteer Force (EVF) are one of the new groups to franchise from the deteriorating English Defence League.
Obviously, they didn't get the one brain cell that the EDL had between the lot of them.
The group were planning to meet at the Euston Flyer pub in Euston, London, at 11.30am this morning to make their way to Wembley to demonstrate at the home of Abu Qatada.
Sadly for them, Qatada was moved to a different house ten days ago.
And the EDL are heading off to Wandworth Prison on the other side of London for a "Free Tommy Robinson" demo.
Many people at the prison will think that is some kind of give-away, as there is no Tommy Robinson at HMP Wandsworth.

Is this the beginning of the end for the Essex EDL division ?
All is not well in what was one of the EDL's most active areas with the division appearing to fracture in a three way split along political lines.
On one side of the barricades is the Essex regional organiser, Paul Pitt aka Paul Prodromou. Pitt has recently linked up with the controversial former BNP fundraiser Jim Dowson and his political party "Britain First". Dowson hopes to launch his own street movement called the "St George's Brigade" with Pitt possibly playing a leading role.
On the other side of the fence is Mark Dunbar, Witham organiser for British Freedom and longstanding EDL activist.
There has been a long running feud between Dunbar and Pitt following the promotion of Pitt to the position of Eastern regional organiser.Dunbar has accused Pitt of having a massive ego (Probably a fair comment) following the creation of an EDL banner with Paul Pitts face and name emblazoned on it.
The conflict intensified following the recent EDL demo in Norwich. Dunbar criticized Pitt after large numbers of Essex and Kent EDL failed to attend the demo despite Pitt being the regional organiser for the area. Threats were exchanged between the two with Pitt telling Dunbar "I know where you live".
Dunbar, who is close to the highly influential East Anglian Division led by Anthony Bamford is now promising to walk away from the EDL following the incident, which will see a number of EDL activists possibly follow him after constant reports of Pitts bullying manner and narcissism.
With the feud getting out of hand, a number of Essex EDL activists have recently aligned themselves to the National Front, despite the EDL leadership's contempt for the veteran fascist party.
EDL stalwarts Diane and Eddie Scrimshaw took part in the NF's march to the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday. Joining them was EDL activist Al Francis and the Essex based EDL tattooist Andy InkTattoo along with several other EDL members.
With some Essex EDL members also flirting with the BNP in the area it appears the division could potentially tear itself apart in the near future.

We've written quite a bit of late about Kevin Watmough, the vulgar Yorkshire Nazi who makes a living selling badges and old Nazi newspapers.
Kevin never misses an opportunity to make a few quid out of his fellow Nazis, so it is no surprise to see Kevin has teamed up with the National Front's burglar Simon Biggs in the breakaway Northern Patriotic Front. Neither are particular fans of an honest day's graft.
This year, Watmough has been making a few quid by selling pin badges with the poppy on. There's big money to be made in the British far-right by cashing in on people remembering British and Commonwealth men and women who have died in service. In particular, the poppy is often associated with the sacrifices made in the defeat of Nazism last century.
Watmough has himself come under criticism from the left and the far-right for his selling badges with the poppy on. In a posting he made on a social network site he responds to criticism that he is ripping off the British legion who run the genuine poppy appeal. Watmough claims (without proof) that Burnley NF gave some of his badges away at the Burnley British Legion club and that the British Legion ended up with 80p from every one of the 67 badges he then sold on Ebay.
Just to clarify, it was Ebay who deducted that money and does so to stop people like Watmough ripping the Legion (and old soldiers) off.
He even admits to paying import tax, whatever happened to buying British made products?
But there is further reason to draw attention to Watmough and his parasitical activities; Watmough makes more money selling badges glorifying the murderous Nazi regime. He does not give a toss about those brave men and women, black, white and Asian who fought the Nazis. He hates them and besmirches their memory every day.
Earlier this month, Watmough was at the Cenotaph in London for the regular NF shuffle of shame. Watmough defiled the Cenotaph because he was only there to make money out of the memories of the very people who are remembered there. Though he bowed his head, it was not in remembrance. But it was neither, sadly, in shame.
This reprobate, thug, coward and bully is a national disgrace who defiles the memory of people who fought Nazism.
Isn't it time the British Legion not just get their cut out of his sales, but actually campaigned to ban thugs like him from Britain's most famous war memorial on Remembrance Sunday?
And perhaps the tax man and social services should also take a closer look at his activities too.

The Rotherham by election is just one week away, with the BNP fielding their veteran organiser Marlene Guest as its candidate.Marlene is well known in anti fascist circles and in particular for her appearance on the Sky TV documentary "BNP Wives". I've included part of the documentary here which clearly shows Guest's antisemitism and Holocaust denial. It also clearly shows what sort of person Marlene Guest really is. It's a good reminder why we need to expose the BNP for their hateful views. Stop the BNP in Rotherham on November 29th.

Since it was formed in 1967 the National Front has suffered no less than twenty splits. Some were ideological, most were personality driven and some were quite hilarious. Take the latest trouble to befall the party: Their North East of England branch has left the main rump to form their own breakaway group ingeniously called Northern Patriotic Front.
The problem is, although the group started to act “autonomously” of the main party back in August of this year, they forgot to tell party headquarters they were doing so, only informing them officially at the beginning of this month that they would not be able to play the party's drums on a march.
The leader of the NPF is convicted serial burglar and racist attacker Simon Biggs. Biggs was drafted into the NF in 1991 after leaving prison, in the hope the party would put him on the “straight and narrow”.
Two years later, he was with another current NF member (but then the BNP’s deputy leader) Richard Edmonds, when the pair carried out a vicious racist attack on a mixed race couple.
Biggs split from the NF because he wanted to run around with the EDL, Infidels and Kevin Watmough. When the NF leadership were asked after his whereabouts at their tiny Remembrance Parade, Party Chairman Ian Edward told the inquisitor that Biggs had “stolen the Newcastle and North East of the party”.
That’s one victimless crime, finally, for "Biggsy"

The English Democratic Party (EDP) has been cock-a-hoop since their strong showing in last week's undersubscribed PCC elections.
As the PCC results came in on Friday, the EDP (ED's) had already held excited conference calls celebrating the overnight confirmation that the British National Party was a long way from recapturing its past form.
Yesterday the party's Executive Council met to plot their next move.
The ED's have been desperate to replace the BNP as the main party on the far-right and in attempting to do this, have wasted no time recruiting large number of former BNP officials and activists. In fact, whole swathes of BNP branches moved over to the EDP last year as the BNP's demise became irreparable once Nick Griffin made it clear he would not stand down as party leader.
The EDP stepped up their campaign to surpass the BNP earlier this year when they jumped into a business relationship with controversial former BNP fundraiser Jim Dowson. Despite having his own party, Britain First, and being a Scottish Unionist, Dowson will fight anybody's war for the right price.
Getting into bed with a hardline Loyalist like Dowson meant that the ED's had to abandon an unpopular decision by some to try and link up with Sinn Fein, the political wing of the Provisional IRA. Nor do the ED's leadership seem to mind that Dowson is currently a wrecking ball among the rest of the far-right. Or perhaps that pleases them?
Certainly, some people have been keen to suggest that legal papers served on behalf of Dowson on the British Freedom Party's leader Paul Weston were at least given the once-over by EDP leader Robin Tillbrook, a solicitor. Dowson is rather perplexed however that Weston has still not responded, neither has Kevin Carroll, who also had papers served at his home last week.
As well as legally trying to break the BFP and EDL, Dowson is keen to launch his own street gang, which will be called the "St George's Brigade" when they don their boots for an attempted riot in Southend next month. Most of those preparing for the excursion are of course, former EDL activists whose palms Dowson has greased with promises of silver.
Over the last three days, the English Dems sent an email to an enormous list of right-wing activists across the political spectrum-from BNP to UKip members- gloating over the state of the BNP and describing UKip as "nothing but compliance, internal division and broken dreams" and a "phony (sic) anti-EU party".
As Dowson revels in the praise heaped upon him by the party hierarchy for his Midas touch, the EDP are stepping up their campaign in Rotherham By-election where there is already BNP, UKip and an (EDL aligned) Independent.
The ED's have promised internally to "smash" what they describe in their email as the "toxic" BNP. Having Dowson on side, as toxic as he is himself promises if anything, it will be a bumpy and dangerous ride for the EDP. With Nick Griffin and Jim Dowson, things are more than a little personal.
You can read more about the ED's growing "Militant Tendency" in the latest edition of Hope Not Hate magazine:

Well, that was the week that was. The EDL’s Kevin Carroll’s political career began with the expected defeat in his quest to be elected as the Police & Crime Commissioner for Bedfordshire, but his party, the British Freedom Party (BFP), claim the 10.3% vote he gained would actually translate to something like five million votes across the country if there was a General Election tomorrow. How they worked that out is anybody’s guess.
Predictably, Carroll complained there had been a conspiracy to stop him from winning the Police Commissioner’s job. Although he did manage to beat a Muslim candidate, Carroll complained to a local newspaper that he had been threatened, arrested, had his car impounded, and had been excluded from almost all meetings relevant to the PCC role as part of this conspiracy.
If he was to cast his mind back to say, September 11th of this year, Carroll may well recall accompanying his cousin Stephen Lennon on his allegedly illegal trip to the United States instead of attending one of the meetings relevant to the PCC job. Perhaps the relevant authorities thought Kevin just was not serious about the job?
Whatever happens, it is unlikely that the £5000 deposit the BFP saved in Bedfordshire will be spent on the Rotherham By-election. Confusion reigns for some as to whether Clint Bristow is an EDL candidate or a BFP candidate. Although the BFP did try to claim Bristow as one of their own at the last minute, it appears that Bristow is blissfully confused by the ongoing tussle between the BFP and Britain First over the political direction of the EDL and is standing as an independent much to the chagrin of the BFP leadership.
The big “winners” of the PCC elections would appear to be the English Democrats. Jam-packed full of former BNP members, the party polled quite well, in particular in South Yorkshire, where they polled just short of 16%. The relative success of the ED’s is a bitter pill for BNP leader Nick Griffin to swallow knowing that his arch nemesis Jim Dowson is now not only a major player in the EDL’s internal divisions, but also the major fundraiser for the ED’s. We broke the story of Dowson doing the ED’s fundraising a couple of months ago and have followed it up with more information in this month’s edition of Hope Not Hate magazine.
Bizarrely, Nick Griffin was spotted in Brusselslast week trying to dispose of a flag in a rubbish bin. It’s probably the best place to put it Nick, given that is where your party appears to be heading after another set of disastrous election results during the week, but I could not possibly confirm that it was actually the property of Andrew Brons, Griffin’s former colleague and fellow MEP
Those close to Brons are saying he cannot afford to lose anything at the moment. His new party has as good as died at birth with Brons’s refusal to lead and to fund it and those around him are growing tired of his (lack of) antics. Still, apparently the old man was quite rude to Simon Darby, the Griffin sycophant who works for both MEP’s last week. Darby was rumoured to be most tempted for a while to throw his lot in with Brons.
Griffin’s attempts to beef up party security with the aid of the moronic “Combined Ex-Forces”- the cut –and- paste morons who patronise army surplus stores, was another spectacular failure last week. The charity box thieves, burglars and buffoons managed to expose a loyal BNP member as an antifascist. Except, he isn’t. Or is he? The paranoid wannabe paramilitaries will probably be carrying out a DNA test on Griffin’s Belgian coffee table next.. That’s if they’re not burgling the homes of real soldiers away on duty again.
Rumours that the NF are due another split appear to be true. The party may have secured the services of an Iranian mouthpiece and anti-Semite while he is waiting for Brons to get off his fat arse, but the North East branch of the party are more interested in getting drunk and making fools of themselves than listening to the dubious warblings of a spokesman for the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Expect plenty of salacious gossip to come out of the NF’s attempts to fight the Croydon By-election. If you thought Kevin Carroll’s conspiracy theories as to why he lost the Bedfordshire PCC elections were amusing, wait until you hear the “loveable” lunatic Richard Edmonds bang on and on about a Jewish conspiracy on the doorsteps with his flies undone and his trousers hanging some four inches above his shoes.

Well that was a complete waste of time.The protest at Millfield has drawn to a close and could be described as a complete wash out for the far right. Only 25 people turned up for the protest, of which three of those were arrested by the police for various offences. They are now skulking away, more than likely about to drown their sorrows in one of the local pubs.

The North East EDL have been spotted holding a social at the British Legion Club in Sunderland, will they be wandering over later to join up with their racist friends ?Back over at Millfield, another far right thug has been hauled off by the cops for shouting racist abuse through a megaphone. The local anti fascists are giving organiser Simon Biggs a hard time. Biggs, a veteran of the National Front is a convicted burglar and has also spent time in prison for glassing a black male purely for the fact that he had a white girlfriend. Meanwhile, Kevin Watmough, the nazi responsible for the hate filled website Redwatch is working hard leafleting all the local streets with his poison filled literature. I say working hard with my tongue firmly in my cheek, Watmough,who is fast approaching 50 has never worked in his entire life.

We will be keeping a close eye on yet another anti mosque protest in the Millfield area of Sunderland today.Today will see members of various far right groups such as the North East Infidels and the Northern Patriotic Front gather at the site of the proposed mosque. If you remember the last one turned violent with 13 people arrested as disorder escalated and protestors starting throwing rocks, fireworks and bottles. Already about 25 nazis have gathered in the Aldi supermarket next door to the site, including North East NF organiser Simon Biggs, Redwatch owner Kevin Watmough and Liam Pinkham, who has only just recently been released from yet another spell in prison. One nazi has already been arrested by local police after attempting to attack the group of anti fascists gathered nearby to oppose them.

Today has just got a whole lot worse for the BNP.We reported earlier that the BNP polled just 2.9% in the Manchester Central parliamentary by-election, losing their deposit and an even poorer 1.8% in the Ardwick ward council by-election for Manchester City Council. We can now report a further two failures at the ballot box for the BNP. In Corby, the parliamentary by election saw the BNP's Gordon Riddell finish in 5th place with 614 votes, that is just a paltry 1.72% of the total vote. As in Manchester Central the BNP lost their deposit. Down in Poole, the Branksome East by election for Poole Council saw the BNP's William Kimmet fall into last place with a laughable 28 votes (2.31%) Try not to snigger too much.

When they are not robbing collection tins destined for retired or injured ex-servicemen and women, wannabe terrorists of the Combined Ex-Forces (CxF) are cut and pasting pictures of guns and tanks onto their internet pages and pretending they are pictures of the contents of their garages at home.
In their quest to protect the BNP's sub-standard security, Griffin has also entrusted the group with hunting down antifascists who expose the activities on line of BNP idiots.
So far so good. Here's Scott Harwood from Sussex.
We can confirm he is Scott Harwood, a dedicated EDL member....
He's also a member of the BNP
Sometimes one has to wonder how these idiots in CxF even tie their own laces in the morning...

Well, he needs all of the help he can get.
Just remember to vote yourself if you live in Bedfordshire.

Hope not Hate can exclusively reveal that the English Defence League are standing a candidate at the forthcoming Rotherham by-election.
Violent thug Clint Bristow is the EDL's Doncaster organiser and is standing in the election due to take place on November 29th. Although not listed as an EDL candidate there can be no doubt over the real intentions of Bristow's candidature. The BNP will not be happy.
Bristow, a former BNP member, has been arrested several times at EDL demonstrations. In October 2011, Bristow, who also uses his real name Brian was jailed for seven days and ordered to pay £400 costs and £10 compensation after admitting using threatening behaviour. He was also given a conviction-related ASBO (CRASBO) as part of his sentence. Bristow was one of three men who admitted threatening behaviour towards a man running a stall providing Islamic literature near Speakers' Corner, in October 2010. The victim was verbally abused and had his possessions thrown around. Also in October 2010, Bristow pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis following his arrest at the EDL demonstration in Leicester and was fined £100 with £85 costs.

The National Front made a mockery of Remembrance Sunday last weekend by allowing a known Holocaust denier to join their ranks.
Rushton is one of Britain’s leading Holocaust deniers and has links to nazi groups across Europe and antisemites in the Middle East. He was previously involved in the BNP but was expelled by Nick Griffin in 2002. He is currently deputy editor of Mark Cotterill’s magazine Heritage and Destiny. He is also an employee of Press TV, a 24-hour English language news network operated by the government owned broadcaster Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB).
Press TV has been frequently linked to claims of antisemitism and in January this year had its UK licence to broadcast revoked by Ofcom following a serious breach of UK broadcasting rules. Rushton, a former leading member of the White Nationalist Party, appears on a regular basis on the controversial station and is referred to as a " Historian and political commentator."
Marching just behind Rushton is veteran nazi apologist and Holocaust denier Richard Edmonds.
The National Front obviously missed the irony of marching alongside a leading mouthpiece for The Islamic Republic of Iran.

Needless to say, Dave has not taken it too well. Having invited his Chinese Nazi friend up to his farm to play with guns and swastikas, she has decided that he is too “low class” to continue their friendship. Apparently it boils down to not just David being a “loser” (her words), but also his being “low class” having only three pence of credit on his phone the night he was supposed to text her the result of his most recent electoral drubbing
Being referred to as “low class” has clearly upset David (there’s about 597 comments on his facebook page as people tried to explain it to him). She also complained that David never once bought her dinner on the numerous times she went to his farm. Poor old David, and to think he never once raised an eyebrow the million other times that single mother Khaw referred to other sing Mothers as “sluts”. Indeed, rather than campaign for Jones anymore, Khaw has decided she needs to rescue the reputation of serial child abuser Jimmy Savile instead!
She does love a lost cause, which will no doubt please Khaw’s suitor Jeff Marshall, who I’m told was not a fan of travelling to Todmorden to keep a jealous eye on the two, while one of the idiots was waving a firearm around.
And yes, there is an enormous white elephant in the room...
Elsewhere for fans of drama, the EDL’s Kevin Carroll has had another near-death experience. Who could forget the last cliff hanger? On Saturday, it was like Bobby Ewing getting out of the shower all over again.
Obviously, Kevin only has these “experiences” when he is on his own, rather like the Maryland farmer who keeps getting anal probes everytime he wanders into his barn late at night to look for Aliens.
Still, at least Kevin is consistent. It was Muslims again this time, as it was the last, who allegedly nearly robbed the Bedfordshire electorate of the opportunity to have a thug and a moron as their Police and Crime Commissioner. Far be it for me to say it is in anyway connected to the drubbing he is taking on the doorstep in the absence of any help from his gang of thugs known as the English Defence League, and the thirty thousand leaflets that Hope Not Hate has delivered against Herr Carroll that induces these bizarre near-death experiences.
Kev still managed to make an idiot of himself yesterday. A man laid some white poppies, as he has done for over twenty years, at the local war memorial in Luton where Carroll was himself hiding out of shot. Well, you can read all about it here but one does wonder what Kevin has been up to on the previous thirty nine Remembrance Day events that have passed off without his Gestapo-like interference in Luton.
Elsewhere in what remains of the EDL, some three or four of them managed to find their way to Wandsworth prison on the weekend to stage a “Free Tommy Robinson” protest. There are apparently three Thomas Robinson’s currently incarcerated at Her Majesty’s Pleasure in the UK, but not one of them is at Wandsworth, and not one of them is the leader of a tiny band of misfits, drug dealers, racists and hooligans. Given that EDL leader Stephen Lennon has been desperately begging for his fans to send him postal orders to pay for his luxuries while he is inside, I wonder if he has listened to “This Joke isn’t funny anymore” by The Smiths on his ipod while he’s banged up in solitary to avoid him taking his “counter-Jihad” war on tourism to the other lags on C wing?
The EDL’s website is also experiencing some problems. For those of us with experience in these things, the correct term is “Simon Bennett Server Disaster”, aided by Jim Dowson
By the way, has Dowson openly announced the launch of the St George’s Brigade yet? You won't find news of it on facebook or in any tawdry column-filling trip around empty boozers, but residents of ‘Sarfend will better know them as EDL thugs when they magically appear there later this month, anyway.
The National Front returned to the capital yesterday, but nothing new to report. Just that it appears flares are back in fashion .
And finally, six people were arrested at Millwall over the weekend after another unsavoury incident related to racism in football.
By all accounts, Rod Liddle has jumped to the defence of the young boy accused of racism… so that should end well for him.

Just days after the 74th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the night the Nazis orchestrated the destruction of thousands of Jewish businesses and homes, the National Front celebrated another inglorious anniversary. Today marked the 45 year that the NF has marched past the cenotaph defiling the memory of the brave men and women who died fighting for Britain; many in a war against fascism. The march has been the highlight of the NF calendar for decades as each year racial nationalists and British Nazis come together, drape themselves in Union Jacks and attempt to misappropriate Remembrance Sunday for their own ends.
Numbering just 150 the NF met at 2:00pm at Victoria Station and marched down Victoria street and amassed in front of the Cenotaph. Joined by a group of sinister Polish nationalists, ex-BNP members and EDL supporters were a contingent from the violent and Nazi Racial Volunteer Force. The parade shocked and appalled passers by and tourists as the dismal drummers and worse bugler crudely mimicked the proud military bands that marched past the Cenotaph only hours before. As the rag tag bunch of racists, Nazis and Holocaust deniers passed in front of Westminster Abbey a line of British and Norwegian veterans demonstrably turned their backs on the march to show their contempt, only to be met by a barrage of abuse by the passing NF. When asked what prompted their actions the Norwegian soldiers disdainfully replied, "We know only too well their type in Norway."
Among the flags, banners and badges was a particularly wretched wreath emblazoned with the word "Unity". Anyone who understands the history of this march will recall the infamous "No Brothers Wars" banner designed to condemn the fight against fascism in the Second World War. Despite the subtlety of the message most onlookers were left in little doubt who today's wreath was calling for unity with. Ordinarily, placing a wreath calling for unity with Nazis amongst the many legitimate wreaths at the foot of the Cenotaph would be the most offensive part of the day. However today, elements at the back of the march let off red flares, more suited to a football game than Remembrance Sunday, leading to an undignified and highly disrespectful scuffle.
Despite being the 45th anniversary of this despicable event the NF will have little to celebrate tonight; facing distain, ridicule and anger from the public and ex-service personnel. Today's meagre showing seems to suggest that the NF are failing to attract the litany of disgruntled nationalists that have recently abandoned the ranks of the BNP and the EDL. However the NF might like to dress today's march up it marks nothing more than 45th year of disrupting the dignity and solemnity of Remembrance Sunday.

Dowson is tonight bragging that he has had the BFP website taken down while he attempts to destroy the rest of the party.
The BFP claim that they are merely victims of a DDOS attack. Our sources say however, that Dowson has served papers on their website hosts Webmesh this morning.
If anyone can, Jim can. Just ask the BNP..

Despite antagonism by some members of the new party, the BNP refused to bite and instead, Nick Griffin took his depleted numbers to stand outside a kebab shop where Griffin barked nonsense into a microphone for forty minutes.
Instead of coming out fighting in the face of a possibly even nastier far-right party swimming in Griffin's dirty bath water, he offered some light relief to antifascists instead by announcing Marlene Guest as the BNP's candidate for the Rotherham by-election.
There was a time when Griffin would not even give Marlene the time of day, even going as far as to humiliate her on one television documentary when he turned his back on her before she could recite anymore of her poetry to him. Having spent hours reading poetry to her parrot in preparation for her big moment in front of the Fuhrer, Marlen instead regailed the TV crew with her opinions about the joys and benefits of the Holocaust.
So when we say things are desperate in the BNP, they really are...
Elsewhere, with EDL leader Stephen Lennon still complaining that he is not receiving any mail addressed to his false name while being held on remand at a London Prison, we thought it only fair to ask his American backers some tough questions. Believe me, these questions will hit the spot right about...Thursday.
Lennon's cousin Kevin Carroll continues to run the EDL into the ground while Lennon is "resting", and claimed last week that is was "skulduggery" that got him nicked along with Lennon and 51 other EDL members two weeks ago. Obviously not one for collective responsibility, can someone tell Kevin that if you're out collecting the cash, you have to take a little bit of the blame too?
As to who painted the Hitler moustache over the smiling face on Kevin's campaign billboard in Bedfordshire, I suggest Kevin also looks a little closer to home on that one too.
Kevin's sworn enemies, the Infidels, had a day out in London last week where they say they were preparing for their proposed demonstration in Newham next weekend. The practice went to plan, as they spent most of their time in the pub.
One of their number unlikely to travel to London to sit on a roof will be Kevin Watmough of Redwatch infamy. Having spent over a decade harassing members of the public, the tables turned on Watmough last week, and he really did not like it.
These are interesting times. You can read more here in the latest edition of the Hope Not Hate magazine.

Notorious Yorkshire Nazi Kevin Watmough is complaining that he has been targeted for abuse.
Funnily enough, Watmough is not being targeted by one of the many thousands of Trade Unionists and antifascists who are in turn targeted by Watmough's Redwatch website, but in fact by one of his own number of fellow Nazis.
Watmough is a notorious figure who has run the Redwatch website for years. It collects the names and addresses of people that Watmough disagrees with, then encourages his fellow Nutzis to target them for abuse, intimidation and violence.
Quite often, the information on the site is wrong. Quite often the people listed are simply people who have marched against wars or even collected signatures to save their local library or hospital. In Watmough's vile world, anyone can be a target: Teachers, nurses, doctors, actors, politicians, librarians, foreigners, etc, etc
When not campaigning for the release of violent paedophiles, Watmough is now hanging around with the CxF, NF and North West Infidels. He makes a living selling them Nazi badges as his own party, the British People's Party, has ground to a halt.
Being targeted for harrasment or attack by "fellow travellers" is never nice, but I doubt many people will be shedding a tear in angst for the man dubbed the "poison dwarf" as a result of his years of hatred, violence and abuse.

The notorious gang of drug dealers and animal abusers who split from the EDL to go by the name of the "Infidels" claim they will be holding a demonstration against a proposed Mosque in East London, later this month.
Although it is unlikely to go ahead, a number of the gang were in London today sniffing around a site in Newham that they claim is being used illegally as a place of worship.
Their demonstration is planned for 10th November, but it is unlikely to go ahead in the style of EDL demonstrations. The group are more keen on performing cheap publicity stunts like sitting on roofs after consuming large quantities of drugs and alcohol.

Pamella Geller has begun asking people to contribute to the "defence" fund for imprisoned EDL leader Stephen Lennon.
Geller normally spends her time blogging outrageous anti-Islamic conspiracy theories, but is not averse to helping spread the unhelpful lie that Lennon's name is actually Tommy Robinson.
Geller also keenly repeats the myth that not only is Lennon a "political prisoner" despite his alleged criminal nature of the investigation into him, but also that Lennon is somehow a "victim" of a conspiracy while being held on remand.
For those who do not know, Lennon is actually on remand for of all things, charges relating to the alleged use of false documents to enter America, for a meeting organised by Geller.
On her blog, Geller writes how "Legal funds are badly needed. Tommy’s situation in prison is terrible, and they urgently need to raise funds to pay lawyers to address this situation and provide him with the best possible legal defense".
Perhaps Lennon's prsion "plight" would not appear so bad if his supporters were not sending money, cards and letters to the name of a person who does not exist.
Anyway, Lennon previously bragging that he does not need or require any legal help as he has plenty of legal advice on tap. I guess it requires a different sort of legal advice than the usual football hooligan activity he does so love to engage in.
While Geller and her pack of "Counter-Jihadists" concern themselves with the plight of a non-person and rasing funds for his legal defence, the question one would have thought Geller would really be asking is when will US authorities question her as to whether she was either aware of or complicit in Lennon's alleged use of illegal documents to enter the United States. He was there after all, to attend a meeting that she had organised.
