    A mate is involved, a mate now down in Manchester was also involved. I would guess he would have been there Saturday at the tourney.

    Looks like the dobbers formerly known as National Action are looking to relaunch themselves in Edinburgh on the 25th March at a white pride march. There's at least three counter demos I know of- this one, Scotland Against Trump have called a demo meeting at 12.45pm at the Market St entrance of Waverley Station (don't know who they are but seem game to try and block the route), plus there will be the usual UAF shitefest in the vicinity, too.
    Something for everyone...

    heavy manners continue hammering far right.
    'More than 60 people have now been jailed for the rioting that took place on Saturday, January 30. Kent Police figures up to November 24 showed that 62 people had already gone to prison out of a total of 80 arrested. A total 67 had been charged.'
    very few antifa arrested and the fash keep saying 'antifa get lighter sentences' but forget how much previous fash eejits usually have, like that arsehole 'bunny' crehan the former bacon draper.

    It's kind of cleared the field for Britain First. They're now calling for a 1st April central London demo following today's attack on Parliament. No doubt hoping for the kind of boost that the Lee Rigby murder gave the EDL.

    I had the misfortune to be seated near the current leader of the EDL in court. He was playing a selection of fart noises off his phone, much to his amusement. That doesn't speak well for your assessment of Mr Golding's brainpower.

    They were at the anti racism march in London last weekend, as they were the year before, except shitter. Last time there were about 20 of them on Eros in Piccadilly Circus, with two lines of cops around them. This time there were a dozen at most, stuck outside Ripleys Believe It Or Not, with cops literally five deep. All you could see were some flags and the tops of a few shaved heads.

    I gather that some of the anti racist types were a bit more pro active this year.

    I was in Barcelona a few years back, by chance around the catalan national day, 11 Sept. There was a big political market and I got a catalan AFA flag.

    Not that Facebook events are a reliable indicator of turnout for protests, but it looks like the far-right have around 2,500 people going or interested on their two events for Saturday in London. While anti-fascists have around 1,200 going or interested on their two events.

    So there's a chance fascists could outnumber anti-fascists for the first time in London since the EDL protest on Whitehall in the days after Lee Rigby was killed.

    If it's a Britain First event then it's no accurate indicator at all. There's a chance they might get a spike in support although that wasn't the case at Edinburgh on Saturday.

    I should probably add that Saturday was fash proper so probably unpalatable for most who just want a dig at Muslims - so might mean nothing in terms of a spike.

    It's always been the case (since 2009) that the anti Islam ultra nationalist brigade are more dangerous than the out and out Neo-Nazis.

    I'm looking at the EDL event on FB and it's talking about 176 attendees though.

    They attract bigger numbers. I don't think it makes them 'more dangerous' although we're sailing head on into subjectivity here.

    More dangerous in terms of potential mass appeal. Politically more dangerous.

    I agree with that to a point, the normalising of racism. Although I'd argue UKIP are the most lethal when it comes to that.
    They want a level of respectability also which creates a drag on Nationalism proper. It neuteres the movemement also.

    I have a feeling that BF are signing up for their own event with their fake Facebook followers.

    I don't think the EDL will recover (see comment re the calibre of the leadership earlier) but it should be remembered that between 2009 and 2011 their roadshow was pulling a couple of thousand pretty up for it people onto the streets at least once a month.

    I can't ignore them being in their tens in the NE circa 2013 then pulling 1,000+ in Newcastle following Rigby, no. But that bounce didn't last. Plus I'd argue it's daft to oppose them the rare times they have public support.
    But then they still deserve shit for being fascist cunts so it's a tough call.

    yes, you're right. they buy likes for Facebook and Youtube and they really haven't developed beyond their, now restricted, 'mosque invasions.' And the awful Jayda Fransen waving her cross around looks nutty.
