The free weekly direct action newsheet published in Brighton since 1994 - Copyleft - Information for Action

The much heralded Britain First roadshow ain't going too well. After being forced to cancel their Dartford meeting, Britain First were once again  humiliated tonight after another pathetic turnout, this time in nearby Swanley.

Paul Golding (co-incidentally winner of this week's Crap Arrest) might have expected a better turn out in a town where he once was a BNP councillor. In the end though despite the last minute venue change and an attempt at eluding discovery* Britian First found themselves outnumbered and surrounded by anti-fascists.

After a 45 minute stand off they left escorted by police, with no local support.

Within minutes they had cancelled the next stop on the itinerary - Bristol, blaming 'adverse police action'. We're sure that's true and not in any way because they got cold feet at the thought of heading to a town with an even more fearsome ant-fascist reputation than Swanley.

**Top tip - while a Land Rover in desert camoflauge is probably great for lurking in a wadi in the Yemen it's a tad conspicous in a Kentish town centre.

P.S Anti-fascists also scored a notable win over far-right ninnyhammers South East Alliance today but more of that later.

Under police guard Britain First fail to be mobbed by enthuisiastic support

Very brave words coming from anonymous. If you're that proud and brave, why didn't you post your name? Stand up! Be counted! Be a proud nationalist and let us all know who you are. Nah, you won't. Because you're a coward, just like the vast majority of the BF keyboard warriors.

P.S. The meeting up in Newcastle had about a dozen people. That just shows you what a 'legion' BF are. Pathetic. You'll disappear soon enough just like any other nationalist group before you.

I love how if you're not a racist, bigoted, violent shit stirring, 'mummy issues make me wet the bed' nob, that you're instantly labelled a festival going, weed smoking (long haired!?....) 'leftie' - back to the forties with you Mr Anonymous (i.e. Took a break from watching gimps in fake soldier outfits running around their town fighting bad brown people 'wiv special army cars' long enough to vomit his bile onto this comment section) maybe you should get to bed before 3am and you wouldn't be going so mental....

It seems to me that this so called roadshow is costing Britain First a fortune, and they are getting very little real support. Support on facebook does not automatically turn into real life support.

Support against racism and fascism always get the "leftie pot smoking nutter" out and supporting. BF - you are not an army, you are not the IRA. You do not have Battalions or company's or carry out "Operations"

You pick on one group of people because of a few extremist nutters and in doing that, become extremist nutters.

nobody wants you in their town, that's why "Adverse Police activity" (a term made up by Britain First, which mean, "A lot of anti racists will be demonstrating because nobody wants us in their towns"

By all means keep wasting money travelling the UK with your hate roadshow. Hopefully the money will run out.

Britain just isn't a nationalist country. It's been a mix of different nationalities and cultures since Roman invasion and possibly before. Nobody can doubt that unless they are as thick as fuck...

British people have a sense of humour - BF how about marching about in ridiculous uniforms pretending to be soldiers. Give us all a fucking good laugh...

Orrp who's a good little leftie keyboard warrior? Haha Islam is not a race, its a religion. Therefore boycotting a religion (especially one that promotes peadophilia, classes woman as "half of what a man is worth" and believes anyone who doesn't support allah should "burn in hellfire") is not racism. So heres an idea, open your eyes and read the quaraan. Also, as for anyone stating thier name, why dont you post your name and adress and 'stand up and be counted'? See the thing is alot of these people are ex- armed forces, and was willing to give thier lives to protect tratorous scum like you. Now you call them racists with no evidence and threaten them? Lol you lefties are the brainwashed ones. Read a book. Keyboard warriors.

No one saw you there David Armstrong. So its rich coming from a keyboard warrior like you. Coward. Hiding behind a computer no doubt like half of the pathetic ignorant leftie facists. Bf are peaceful, not racist, not homophobic. Read a quraan, do some research, and watch the news before you start seeking rows with the right wing. No more shall be said, if you have anything you want to say to us please feel free to come along and say it in person. Or will you wait for the police to turn up amd stand behind them and shout threats? Lol. Pathetic.

Hey anonymous, you were one of the twelve were you ;-)
Yeah you're I wasn't there. Figured it'd be hard to speak to a bunch of knuckle draggers. I might not have understood their grunts.
I've been at plenty of matches against groups like the EDL and BNP.

Also with regards to your dumb rhetoric there about BF being peaceful. Pull your head out of your arse you dumb ignorant moron. Just go look at their pages. BF. Not homophobic? Hmm BF Christians page seems to speak differently. You're delusional. Also your claims about the Quran, have you read the bible? It's violent, homophobic and incestuous as anything gets! I suggest you read it.

If you happen to be in the Newcastle area. Tell you what, meet me at the Benwell shopping centre at 1pm I'll be on my lunch then. I'd be more than happy to talk with you.

See you soon anonymous. Which I'm thinking you will remain. :-)

Isn't a 'leftie fascist' a contradiction???
Added By: Stattler - 20th July 2014 @ 3:55 PM
And now BF are claiming that the police harassed them out of the building. Yet nothing was mentioned last night about it and Mr Anonymous up above says it went off without a hitch. So which was it? I'm guessing it's another example of BF lies to whip it's couple of thousand bigoted supporters into a foaming mouthed frenzy.

So this week alone we've had warrants out for Golding's arrest where the police turned up at several houses with dogs - Lie
Golding arrested immediately on turning up at Bexleyheath Station -Lie
Dartford being moved due to police presence - Lie

Did I miss any?

Police raiding the pub in Dronfield/ telling the landlord to cancel the meeting when in fact the landlord found out who they actually were (they'd booked under a fake identity) and barred them entry - Lie.
Caring about animal welfare - Lie
Using the poppy logo of the British Legion without permission - not technically a lie, but pretty pondlife-ish behaviour.
Using the image of Lee Rigby when Lee's family has specifically and repeatedly asked them not - also not technically a lie but the work of complete ballbags.

I had to cut it to just this past week. I couldn't write every lie, half truth and example of scum behaviour they've done as I have a birthday party to go to in September and I wouldn't be finished by then.

What I can't understand BF supporters not figuring out by now is that they are being milked. BF has lied about many things but especially this week just gone, they lied about Golding's arrest to raise more funds - they had the begging plea ready to go and jumped the gun a bit by posting it before everyone realised Golding wasn't ACTUALLY arrested. It was a blatant cash grab - and despite the rather ignorant and backwards views of BF supporters, you'd figure at least some of them by now MUST realise they have less pennies lying around because they've given them all to BF.

I'd like to say its sad seeing people being taken advantage of, but in the case of bigots I'll find a way to smile somehow.
