EDL watch

    Thought I'd just start a thread to compile all my posts about the EDL, seeing as almost all my recent threads have been related to them. Who knows; if it takes off, it might become a sticky?

    I've just heard that the EDL have up-turned a UAF stall in Oldham. No report I've found from UAF yet, but I imagine there'll be some 'Oldham UAF activists saw off the EDL on Sunday' headling coming soon. Anyone heard anything?

    Can we redo that argument again for the benefit of a new audience?

    are you talking about the one where you fail to understand why supporting EDL demonstrations is idiotic? if so, i'd rather you keep that to PMs unless it specifically comes up. ta.

    I don't remember it playing out like that at all.

    How I recall it, it was about supporting the Muslim community in opposing both English AND Islamist fascists from a w/c perspective that you couldn't get your head round. Oh well.

    No way did the EDL turn over a UAF stall, what happened was the UAF were campaigning in Oldham and got a fantastic response from locals who queued up ten deep to sign a petition, resulting in the sheer weight of the petitions collapsing the stall.

    Was that the Ajax hooligan firm taking it to the invading foreign firm victory?

    Someone has pointed out in the comments section that the phrase "Chav Scrotes" was used by the EDL leadership to describe those who gave the EDL a bad name.

    And it's placed in inverted commas indicating it was used elsewhere.

    What about the DSS bit?

    Tommy Robinson is the least scary looking far right leader I've ever seen - looks like some sort of junior estate agent cunt. No wonder he used to wear the balaclava. Even then, any pretense of toughness was done away whenever he opened his mouth and sounded like Kathy Burke playing a teenage boy.

    "Soap dodgers", "scroungers", "DSS", "chav scrotes". All pretty pathetic really.

    You have a problem with him suggesting that the DSS doesn't pay enough for people to go abroad? Or that he assumes EDL members that didn't go are on the DSS? Or just the DSS in general being used as a term of abuse?

    I'm not sure that it's the latter. Although if it's some uppity middle class guy sneering at the wwc I can see why it's raised your hackles.

    It sounds like sneering to me, and it's all too common amongst some 'anti-fascists'.

    Comrade 'Maletasa' clearly hasn't signed on for for quite a while or at all, DSS has long been abandoned by the Dept, its now DWP....

    I never mentioned the DSS?

    Now being a recipient of £65 quid a week, I can attest that most on benefit, as I also found in the 80's, are above reproach.

    Of course, there's alway's the twat in the block, who is rumoured to be a crack addict and tried to scam me for a couple of quid the other day, pretending he was collecting for a cancer charity - fucking scumbag.

    Not saying you do, but I don't live in some leafy, middle-class dream world.
