Mystery surrounds Britain First 'hacking'

posted by: Duncan Cahill | on: Friday, 14 April 2017, 12:49


Mystery surrounds the alleged "hacking" of Britain First's website and social media accounts yesterday.

Paul Golding's Twitter account was allegedly attacked, with his home address published along with the message "BOMBS WILL GO OFF I PROMISE U."

Similar messages were reportedly posted on deputy leader Jayda Fransen's website, which was taken offline for several hours. The Independent said that the group's planned demonstration in Birmingham was also threatened with attack.

The Britain First YouTube channel was also allegedly targeted and remains devoid of its usual hate-spreading and cash-begging videos.

No video evidence.

No video evidence.

You'll note our repeated use of the word "allegedly" in this report. This is because we urge caution when looking at the source of this alleged "hack.

It seems peculiar that access could be gained simultaneously to two separate social media accounts and the content management system of the website. It could be a sign of extreme carelessnes or an enemy within.

Or it could all be just a little too convenient.

The Metropolitan Police are said to be investigating so let's hope they can get to the bottom of this mystery-wrapped conundrum.

Crossland plays blame game

Shaggy impersonator Ian Crossland

Shaggy impersonator Ian Crossland

It's a conspiracy!

Yep, that's right. The events in Birmingham last Saturday and response to THAT picture is all down to lefties, liberals, the worldwide media, West Midlands Police and, er, the English Defence League members in attendance.

It must be true because the EDL's Ian Crossland said so.

The EDL spokesman issued a rambling statement last night in which everyone else was to blame but him. For him his infamy translates, Carry On style, as "they've all got it in for me."

According to his version of events he is not responsible for being photographed squaring up to a young Muslim woman. Oh no.

The first finger of blame is pointed towards his own. Crossland says that he and fellow speaker Bill Weir "tried in vain to bring the members back" from where they were confronting counter protestors. This was during the alleged minute's silence.

So he simply toddled off to act as peacemaker. Honest guv. He really should be getting the Nobel Peace Prize rather than being a national, even global, laughing stock.

Just call him Kofi

Just call him Kofi

Saffiyah Khan was, of course, the aggressor. She "came withing (sic) inches" of his face he whines. Well yes Ian, we can see that from the picture which went viral and was published by newspapers across not just the UK, but the world. What a lovely smile she has.

Smiling assassin

Smiling assassin

Which brings us to the other bastards who have totally misrepresented a brave patriot who was simply trying to defeat ISIS armed only with a small PA, some flags and noxious beer fumes.

Yes, the mainstream media. Many journalists approached him for interviews but then decided not to benefit from his wisdom, he says. Apparently this is because the truth is now out there.


That truth involves Saffiyah not in fact being a Brummie, but an antifascist activist who journeyed up from London. We hate to undermine this truth with stuff like, well, evidence. However Saffiyah not only told The Tab that she has lived in Birmingham for 15 years, but, outrageously, a friend of hers wrote for Vice of how they go to gigs and skate parks in Brum.

Naturally the BBC is leading the anti-patriot media charge. In The World According to Crossland, Saffiyah apparently finished her interview with an "antifascist fist salute and and the phrase no passaran (sic)."This was subsequently edited out he claims.

Probably on the orders of the Director General.

The truth is out there. Sort of. Not.

The truth is out there. Sort of. Not.

Sadly not even the DG could get the news desk to pixellate Saffiyah's "free Gazza" t-shirt. Her solidarity with the great England midfielder therefore remained for all to see.

We're proud if a little surprised to find out that we too are part of the media plot. It turns out Saffiyah is a reporter for HOPE Not hate, which we were also a little taken aback to discover is a "left wing rag."

You'd think someone would have told us, on both counts.


Mysteriously the only publications which had apparently not joined the massive MSM conspiracy were the Daily Mail and Russian state TV. Indeed Crossland claims it was a Mail reporter that told him Saffiyah was on the HOPE Not Hate payroll.

This seems unlikely. We know that the Mail may not be regarded as a bastion of accuracy, but for what purpose would it suggest something so blatantly and demonstrably untrue? We can't see the payback.

They certainly didn't print that allegation. In fact were Crossland to inspect the coverage on the Mail Online website he might notice that it very much chimes with that of every other news outlet.

The Mail bowing to the MSM line.

The Mail bowing to the MSM line.

Crikey even former EDL leader Stephen Yaxley-Lennon was singing the MSM song.

Not Tommy rot.

Not Tommy rot.

Despite the overwhelming evidence, which includes on-the-spot videos (oh, and, Ian, RT's footage), Crossland insists Saffiya is a "proven liar." and that "neither [he] nor any of the e.d.l. threatened" her. This is the same man who also posted after the event that "she's lucky she's got any teeth left."

To add insult to Crossland's injured pride, when his beloved Mail reported that comment they did so using a screenshot from the HOPE Not Hate Twitter account.

Mail shot.

Mail shot.

Incidentally, rather than post his rambling nonsense, Crossland had intended to share his thoughts via a live Facebook video. Sadly he couldn't get it to work. That was probably Marck Zuckerberg's fault.

EDL "finished" in North claims former leader

posted by: Sarah Archibald | on: Tuesday, 11 April 2017, 20:12


Dylan Cresswell: young, twisted and wack.

Dylan Cresswell: young, twisted and wack.

A row has broken out among far right factions in Liverpool after the former leader of the English Defence League in the city declared the "EDL were finished North of Birmingham five years ago."

Kurtis Cawley made the claim on the Liverpool Echo's Facebook page, prompting an immediate spat with fresh-faced successor, Dylan Cresswell.

(In reproducing the screenshot above, we apologise on Cawley's behalf for his derogatory language)

Properly spitting out his his dummy Dylan launched an angry retort, the first salvo in a War Against Punctuation. A rebel without a clause he ranted unintelligibly about "giving the Left more ammo."

It was breathless stuff. Well it was if you tried to read it out loud.

Cawley hit back with a dig which highlighted something we've documented many a time; the only class you'll find among the far right are class As.

Apparently Kurtis was introduced to some bloke called Charlie no fewer than five times in three minutes at an EDL demo in Rochdale.

Whilst Cawley might be best known locally for getting the sack following some childish racist japery, he is proving wiser when it comes to the EDL's proposed Liverpool demo.

This is being organised by the boy Cresswell for June 3rd.

The "EDL m**** will get run out of Liverpool as quick as they arrived" he predicts. He's no doubt recalling the humilation suffered by the North West Infidels and now proscribed National Action. The city did the double to see both off.

Incidentally we're not sure to what Cawley is referring when he says "the Left were smashed" in the city five years ago. Perhaps it was when a gang of ten Infidels led by Shane Calvert attacked a father and son on Bold Street. That cowardly pack attack saw seven of the gang jailed. Cawley was not among them but does seem to want to take some credit. Were you there Kurtis?

But back to the spat.

It occurred, amusingly enough, on a thread dedicated to the Echo's coverage of EDL spokesman Ian Crossland's humiliation in Birmingham on Saturday. The paper declared that Liverpool should follow in the footsteps of brilliant Brummie, Saffiyah Khan when greeting the EDL on Merseyside.

I don't know about you but I don't think I'll ever tire of seeing that picture.

Meanwhile, back in Liverpool things have got worse for Cresswell. Demo wars have broken out with news that Britain First is packing its flags and heading up the M6 to get all shouty in Birmingham on..... you're ahead of me aren't you?

It's particularly galling for the young chap that Golding and Fransen actually rescheduled their Midlands day-trip in order to rain on his little Liverpool parade. Very naughty.

It seems the youthful agitator has been schooled by Paul "Potty Mouth" Prodromou. Maybe he took time out during his recent visit to Liverpool Magistratres Court?

Wherever he picked it up, we must insist that there's no need for such foul language young man. No need at all Dylan.

Naughtier still, Stephen Yaxley-Lennon is continuing to stir the pot. Having been a no-show with the EDL in Birmingham on Saturday, he's currently in the city with Britain First. So, after rightly condemning Crossland's behaviour with the EDL, he's trundling around in a van with Paul and Jayda. Trolling par excellence Tommy.

But crowning another dismal week for the far right, the self-proclaimed saviours of the nation just bumped into some stars of Extremely British Muslims. It all turned out a bit embarrassing.

Extremely stupid meets Extremely British.

Extremely stupid meets Extremely British.

Dumped!

Collett: Yes, yes he does...

Collett: Yes, yes he does...

Mark Collett is a man with a history. Much but not all of it is covered here. Obviously, we don't mention Batman outfits, the infamous 'kidnapping' etc as that would be unfair.

Collett has reinvented himself recently as a 'serious' fascist. He still makes us laugh, no end. He's even brought out a book to accompany his regular podcasts. No-one likes Collett's voice like Collett loves Collett's voice. It's a voice even a Mother would struggle to love.

Even the Currant Bun was taken with her

Even the Currant Bun was taken with her

My colleague who worked on the recent ITN expose of National Action and their friends, told us how Collett came dressed for the rumble, but did not actually rumble. He stood and watched [like John Walker?]. In fact, one of the reasons so few people attended the nazi training camp was because Collett was there.

Anyway, Collett has of late been very down on women.

Freud would have a field day with this

Freud would have a field day with this

It turns out that not-so lovely Eva Van Housen of nazi tattoo fame, has dumped him. Yep. And her real name was Jenna Smith, anyway.

So that also explains the latest instalment of 'The World According to Collett.' Men who love women are weak. Maybe she stole his mojo while he slept with a picture of himself under his pillow?

Anyway, it turns out that Collett went to work one day with what he thought were his ham sandwiches in a tupperware box. But it turned out there were none actually in the box!! When he went home to query the missing sandwiches, it turns out so too was Ms Jenna Smith missing and all of the pictures he had taken of them and hung around the house.

Collett: rarely leaves home without a mirror

Collett: rarely leaves home without a mirror

So, as you do, he's made a podcast warning other boys about other women. Is it any wonder he's single?

Far-right round up: Weekend warriors and wallies...

posted by: Matthew Collins | on: Tuesday, 4 April 2017, 11:45


Prodromou's tiny England for the 'facking' English demonstration

Prodromou's tiny England for the 'facking' English demonstration

The weekend has passed. And with it the hopes and dreams of a white revolution, whereby the likes of Paul Prodromou (it's proven now, Paul, so drop the fake name) will take over the country and declare war on literacy, numeracy, the English language and Spain. Never mind.

Another piss up that went tits-up

Another piss up that went tits-up

Before last weekend's rather full fascist fixture list, Prodromou spoke at a joint meeting of his miniscule South East Alliance (SEA) and the rapidly disappearing National Front (NF). They even recorded it for some kind of warped posterity. If you apply YouTube subtitles to the video of the meeting it reads something like "facking innit bruv me mutton cotton basterd ding done immegrunt fieves and me farmer Giles ain't black." So, fair play to YouTube for getting it spot on this time. And to think Richard Edmonds was once a warm-up man for John Tyndall!

There was all kinds of other love in the air in the run up to the weekend's activities. Stephen Lennon found himself sipping Vodka with none other than Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen midweek! Talk about a clash of monstrous intellects, it's surprising Prodromou didn't pop down for a Babycham and a few straighteners..

Still, before anyone could get excited about Paul, Jayda and Lennon forming a formidable threesome in the war against tourism, Lennon's old 'Mother Hen' Hel Gower went and stuck her oar in.

Gower: It's funny because it's true

Gower: It's funny because it's true

Friday night arrived and with it Prodromou's SEA, the NF and none other than notorious nose blower, wanna-be-hippy and note taker, Jeremy Bedford Turner. In all, thirty Belgian beer swilling yobs made a stand against immigration and in favour of Brexit in a tiny protest at Trafalgar Square. Prodromou even attempted a chant as they shuffled along the pavement. "We're taking it back, we're taking it back..." he began, but nobody could join as the words for it have surely not been written yet.

Steadman: yes, he's a grown man

Steadman: yes, he's a grown man

"Youse is the elite forward guard" he shouted at his followers once they stopped shuffling. He probably meant to say Vanguard, but never mind. Yes, the English Defence League (EDL) and Britain First (BF) were marching the next day, but Paul was just happy he got there first. Plus, he got thrown out of both of the other groups...

Prodromou: Insert profanity here

Prodromou: Insert profanity here

You have to wonder why "Jez" Turner was at Trafalgar Square on Friday night, but not at the Yorkshire Forum the next day. If Steadman could find a clean pair of shorts to make both events, why not Jez? Answers on a postcard, please...

On Saturday in London, both the EDL and Britain First held protests. The EDL drank lots of cheap lager and had to head for the toilets, whilst Britain First brought along a uniformed escort and stuck Princess Jayda on a pallet to help make herself heard. Between the two groups, they managed little over one hundred people- that is despite the rabidly anti-Semitic Polish Priest Jacek Międlar begging Poles domiciled in London to attend and support the protest.

EDL: Pub toilets against terrorism

EDL: Pub toilets against terrorism

One must ask why the Metropolitan Police allowed Britain First to march around in uniforms and I'm sure they are asking themselves, that too.

Bryn Morgan: the no "Mark" on the Kyle Files

posted by: Sarah Archibald | on: Tuesday, 4 April 2017, 10:20


No Mark Bryn Morgan

No Mark Bryn Morgan

There were bizarre scenes on ITV's Kyle Files last night as notorious North West fascist Bryn Morgan appeared anonymously as part of a report into hate crime.

His interview opened a programme of less than Pulitzer Prize-winning calibre. Host Jeremy Kyle introduced him as "the man behind Bolton's anti-mosque campaign".

He also revealed that Morgan "prefers not to reveal his real name for fear of reprisals." He was thus unveiled as "Mark,"

This was an odd start. Morgan is extremely well known locally for his attempts to stir up hate. He was the British National Party's organiser in the Lancashire town and clearly had aspirations to assume the national leadership role.

Not shy: BNP TV star

Not shy: BNP TV star

He also led Bolton's English Defence League before joining forces with splinter group and criminal drugs gang, the North West Infidels. He joined them at demonstrations in Leigh, Rotherham and elsewhere.

He organised the last far right protest in Bolton. This was the one which grabbed national headlines when members of the now prosrcribed terrorist group National Action threw fascist salutes at the locals.

To complete his Far Right Faction bingo card he also attended an ill-fated Britain First meeting in Wigan. Indeed his affection for Golding's Goldmine Inc remains strong. He joined long-time North West far right associate Mark Wood at Britain First's embarassing little shout-a-thon last Saturday.

Not shy: Declaring 'You know who I am' in Wigan

Not shy: Declaring 'You know who I am' in Wigan

Seeing some right old sights in London.

Seeing some right old sights in London.

So suddenly shrouding himself in a cloak of anonymity seemed odd to say the least. Still, it did at least provide Jeremy with his own defensive shield: how could he possibly mention all these far right associations without revealing the identify of this timid six-foot, muscle-bound fascist? A man self-described as "far from radical"

Except...

Some 20 minutes into the programme, Bryn has changed his mind. Now he thinks it's "important not to be fearful of speaking out without being called a racist."

Right, OK then Bryn. Oh but darn it, look what you gone and said next. Yeah that bit about people "looking to object to overtly ostentatious mosques in a predominantly white working class North West town like Bolton."

The vox pops which opened the Kyle Files, conducted among ordinary members of the public passing that tiny but notorious protest, made it clear his concerns were not shared by Boltonians.

In fact they were embarassed that their proud town was being associated with these fascist thugs.

The suspicion is that it was not reprisals or a fear of being called racist that prompted Morgan's short-lived shyness. It could be that, having had a chequered business career, he worried about the impact on his current entrepreneurial activities. Apparently he's running a little hot-tub hire business. Obviously he likes getting into a bit of hot water.

But the most likely explanation for his initial reticence is simply the knowledge that he does not represent the views of the good people of Bolton. That they shun him and his far right partners-in-peculiarly-raised-arms.

And that they will rightly mock him.

A picture of sincerity.

A picture of sincerity.
