Given the fact that EDL security is as watertight as an Andrex Wetsuit it is hardly surprising that they all fell afoul of plod who were apparently tipped off and thus apprehended the merry bunch of racists. Rumours are flying around at the moment as to the source of the info and we have been reliably informed as to who did it exactly. The three top sources are currently: a female EDL insider quite near the top who has blabbed; a certain webmaster bitter over the lack of attention his little outfit gets these days; and a very nice bunch of anti-fascists who had the info leaked to them by a disgruntled member and passed it on. In fact, it could be all three. The exact identity of whoever whispered into plod’s shell like ear is pretty irrelevant as the end result has some serious ramifications!
Mr Tommy was meant to surrender his passport during the Euro soccer tournament, as he is a known football hooligan, and indeed he was up in court the other week because of his failure to do so. Mr Tommy used his passport to go over to the States to ‘do a speech at the UN’ (in fact to a tiny bunch of racists in a small room near the UN building) and America’s super-system of security did not notice this until now and he has been remanded for entering America illegally. He had tried to get into America a couple of years ago but was turned back, much to his embarrassment, as he has such an ‘interesting’ police record. We have been wondering how he had managed to get into the USA this time round. Regular readers will know that Mr Tommy’s legal woes have been piling up over the year so it is a mystery why his supporters claim he is the victim of police oppression. What they do not mention is that many of his legal problems are nothing to do with the EDL (fraud, hooliganism, failure to surrender passport) and Mr Tommy is in fact a career criminal. Which is one of the reasons why he was booted out of the fluffy fascist British Freedom Party as he is a political liability.
Not only this but beardy weirdo Sayful Islam had apparently took a bit of a kicking in Luton and blamed Mr Tommy for it so several of the EDL arrested had their clothes taken by forensics and had to go home in their underpants. We despise Mr Islam as much as we do Mr Tommy but do not wish a kicking on anyone.
The very posh leader of the fluffy fascist British Freedom Party, Lord Paul Weston, was also allegedly nicked although the fluffies are now denying it. Karaoke Kev Karol, who is standing for Police Commissioner in Bedfordshire in a couple of weeks, was nicked later. A potential candidate for ‘law and order’ being nicked along with a bunch of hairy-arsed, has-been hooligan racists is hardly a vote catcher is it? Most of this happy gang of arse-clowns were banged up for quite a few hours then eventually bailed.
So all this has bigger ramifications for Mr Tommy and the EDL and there are a few theories about this whole affair floating about, one being that Mr Tommy deliberately leaked the info to plod so he would be arrested and his bail conditions would then restrict him from attending Walthamstow 2. He knows full well that he cannot get the numbers to his demos and has indeed admitted that the EDL demos have achieved nothing. As the recent Walsall and Rotherham demos showed he has barely 300 supporters left so he can now cancel Walthamstow without losing face. He also knows a much larger number of anti-fascists and locals will outnumber the EDL on the day and that the EDL are going to be utterly humiliated. His arrest also enforces the martyr image he so desperately wants to cultivate so he can claim he is a ‘political prisoner’ rather than a career criminal. If he was at liberty he would have no alternative than to show up, contravene his bail conditions and then get arrested like he did at Tower Hamlets. The remanding saves him the trouble of manufacturing excuses.
Needless to say the EDL took about 24 hours to get their story straight and are now saying it was simply 'a lad's day out' and 'a photoshoot.' They have inflated the victim balloons by claiming there is a two-tier legal system and that Mr Tommy is a ‘political prisoner.’ More importantly, they have got the begging bowls out to pay for Mr Tommy’s legal representation as he has apparently been denied legal aid. If Mr Tommy wasn’t such a self-seeking, vain and publicity hungry little ‘chav scrote’ we could almost feel sorry for him. But it looks like things have got on top and he is in serious trouble. Listen for the bells, Mr Tommy, it tolls for thee! See you in Walthamstow!
