Yaxley's Last Stand

14-09-2012 17:15

The humiliated "street worriers" of the EDL are returning to Walthamstow on Saturday the 27th of October 2012 for another Little Big Flop, going back to the site of their embarrassing defeat aiming for revenge against local opposition to racism. Referring to everybody who opposes them "communists", one defeat is not enough for the EDL's cowardly Fuhrer Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, whose pig-headed pride has given him the smart idea to return to Walthamstow seeking violent confrontation with antifascists. He's dim, he's ignorant, but surely he's not that thick??? Is he???

Skegness Halal Demos, A Slippery Slope To The Right

10-09-2012 22:12

It has come to our attention that a demonstration has been planned in Skegness, Lincolnshire to oppose a halal slaughterhouse. The nature of this demonstration has led to a take-over by the National Front, a racist, fascist organisation who have recently resurfaced after previously being forced off of the streets by anti-fascist campaigners in the 80s. We believe this paves a dangerous road for animal liberation.
