The least organised fascists in the world are planning to attack our local anarchist theme pub, The Cowley Club.

During the riots last year Lynn Saddington (Brighton based far right loon) decided to attack people leaving the Cowley. Despite the fact that nothing much was happening south of Croydon, Lynn had deduced that those dastardly “lefties and liberals” were clearly orchestrating the sporadic violence. Unfortunately our hero also announced her cunning plan on Facebook, declaring “AND TO ALL THE OLD BILL WATCHING THIS I dont give a fuck you stop them or we will!!!”. Unsurprisingly the cops intercepted Lynn's vigilante mob before they got anywhere near their intended target and told them to piss off out of town, which they did.

Following on from this year's piss poor showing at March for England, Casuals United announced they would “peacefully counter” an antifascist benefit at the Cowley. As a result café volunteers had to put up with a few deluded idiots calling to threaten them and (bizarrely) play the national anthem down the phone. Again the intended disruption came to nowt, primarily due the perceived linearity of time as the gig in question happened a year before the Casuals had decided to go.


On Friday 7th September, undeterred by these pathetic failures, Bill Baker (leader of lunatic fringe English Nationalist Alliance) took to Facebook to announce a “surprise” visit to the Cowley Club. Billy adds that he's going to give antifa “a few slaps” and also implies a bit of arson for good measure. In the meantime Bill has his best brains looking in to who runs the “collectively owned and run” social club. Our money's on this guy - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Cowley

Bill was also the mastermind behind an “infiltration” of Smash EDO's Hammertime demo in October 2010. His foot soldiers received a short education in hard left politics but he never made it himself as apparently his car broke down in Pease Pottage.


The majority of the English Defence League (EDL) are currently more concerned with how to regroup following their humiliation in Walthamstow. Their next demonstration is Walsall on Saturday 29th September with the leadership keen for a huge fascist turnout to reverse their downward spiral. Obviously lacking in any new ideas, EDL leader 'Tommy Robinson' has announced that they will return to Walthamstow on 27th October. We don't really understand the reasons for a second suicide march, but we're looking forward to watching it.

Perpetual moron Bill Baker - last seen skulking around the fringes of the EDL
Past it football hooligan Jeff Marsh - now spends most of his time hanging around with teenage girls
Bill Baker, Mick Wittman (real name Gil Gould) & Ed Dowden (Bristol EDL) speak their brains

Lynn has now decided to take all the fervour she invested in the EDL, before they kicked her out, and the vigour she invested in the CXF, before she reported the CO's 2nd IC, Angels CO and girlfriend at that time to social services about her kids, and point them at the dangerous dogs act. She is currently angling to be top of the heap in who can kick the shit out of the most dog act supporters. Since she seems to be known for her insanity more than anything else, I can only assume it will be a matter of time before she gets kicked out of that one, too.

Fun fact: When people try to make up a name on the spot they often come up with an aliteration, eg. Sam Smith, John Jones, "Julie Johnson"

Lyn is the biggest shit stirrer and small minded no mark around, she calls her self Right Wing but the Right hate her more than the Leftists.

By the way, that is not Lyn in the picture, that woman is pretty attractive, whereas Lyn is hideous.

Isn't it funny how you twisted twats who want diversity all seem to live in
some enlave that's 99% white with the odd token negro and a few crummy ethnic takeaways. If you like diversity so much then why not live
in Lewisham?
You certainly won't when all your old people start getting mugged
and your women folk are too scared to go out at night for fear of being
molested and your teenage daughters get put on the game.
Where will you run to then?
