Boasting that he is a professional soldier recently returned from fighting in Afghanistan where he says he killed Muslims for reading Islamic literature, and now posting his threats on Twitter under the name “wearethebritish” the extremist claims to have been using British Army military surveillance equipment to spy on the climate campers.
Local journalist Jono Warren who posts on Twitter as “nmec” was alerted by LutherBlissetts, one of the climate camp activists, to the fact that the Camp for Climate Action was being threatened:
LutherBlissetts @nmec - wearethebritish says he has gun metal Aston, lives one hour away from climate camp and intends to pay 'scruffy squatters' a visit
@nmec has EDL @wearethebritish turned up to Climate Camp yet?
Nmec @LutherBlissetts Not that I'm aware of.
The wearethebritish spy however was apparently not far away from the climate camp also posting his Twitter messages:
wearethebritish Sitting in car somewhere in Edinburgh - laptop on 3G - have extremists from climate camp under close observation - dull people haven't noticed
Drove to edinburgh to put climate camp under close observation total anti climax – utter non-entities – complete #fail
@ShugNiggurath have been watching them up close - rag tag bunch of hysterical useful fools – climate camp carbon footprint very high
wearethebritish @PoliticalFun check out @LutherBlissetts - he's 'alerted' some kid with a camera to my proximity and dull boy hasn't even seen me
PoliticalFun @wearethebritish I've just found the tweet, hilarious!
You take the guy out of the military but you just can't get the military out of the guy! What surveillance equipment you got?
Are you hunting?
wearethebritish @PoliticalFun "What surveillance equipment you got?" - because they are so pre-occupied with their obsession all I need is a Mk 1 Eyeball
PoliticalFun @wearethebritish are you sitting there taunting them?
wearethebritish @PoliticalFun "are you sitting there taunting them?" - lol, no, they aren't worthy of action - mostly spoilt middle class kids - nobodies
AlJahom @wearethebritish a muck-spreader fully of slurry would be perfect for them. @PoliticalFun
wearethebritish @PoliticalFun @AlJahom climate camp comes with its own self-contained dung heap - a walking squawking steaming midden of irrelevance
wearethebritish @PoliticalFun guys a twat isn't he - these guys think they are so dangerous, so radical, so 'underground' .... the world is lol'ing at them
wearethebritish @ShugNiggurath oh yes - plenty of methane coming out of both ends - truth is that climate camp is a toothless figure of fun and ridicule
wearethebritish come on tweeps - let's all gather round to point and lol at the spoilt little rich kids of climate camp
Tamsin53 @wearethebritish agree some of the anarchy people come from middle class well off families - just thinking of the Redgrave family
wearethebritish @Tamsin53 climate camps kiddies are a laughing stock - multi-billion RBS won't take any notice of them, even Police are openly lol'ing at them
wearethebritish so far climate camp is an absolute failure but then a few spoilt middle class kids were never going to make a dent in a multi-billion corp
The people of Edinburgh couldn't care less about climate camp 'activists' they know RBS is good for their city & soon climate camp will leave
Overweight students should diet not riot - not that soft-skinned spoilt little tubby munchkins are any good at rioting either climate camp
Templar1128 @wearethebritish yes the farmer should use the tractors to push the layabouts off his land.. bet they're claiming benefits though..
LutherBlissetts @wearethebritish climate is changing. precession & glaciation cycle beyond our control yet effects of anthropic change not beyond our control
wearethebritish @LutherBlissetts afternoon sherlock - too bad we didn't meet - maybe next time sonny
@Political_Fun my twittercrush hates me...... isn't it fun
CynaraeStMary @wearethebritish Who could hate you?
Political_Fun @AlJahom Eh? Who's beans I want to know who @wearethebritish has a lefty crush on??

wearethebritish all the chics now checking out my twittercrush
wearethebritish @AmeliaGregory we're talking about you ....
@AmeliaGregory I'm just round the corner from Jenners if you want to meet me for afternoon tea & buns!
The right wing extremist who calls himself “wearethebritish” and who has been posting threats of violence against the Camp for Climate Action seems to have spent the afternoon spying on the climate camp, avoiding being seen by the journalist he knew was looking for him, and posting his unpleasant messages on Twitter.
Maybe he is just the cowardly clown that he appears to be but threatening to burn down the climate camp and using British Army surveillance equipment to spy on the climate campers is probably illegal, and the fact is that a lot of people are now taking this man and the rest of the members of his group very seriously, just in case they might be as dangerous and murderous as they claim to be.
