    There seem to be a lot of supporters popping up, especially on facebook - i'm hoping it's simply ignorance, and that people don't realise that they are a bunch of racist morons...

    I don't think there's many more of them than there ever were, but they seem to have a better social media operation than they did. That can be fluke though. I sometimes do blog pieces. They get anywhere from 40 to 1000 hits with little rhyme or reason to it, I can't see a link to quality for example, good or bad.

    Britain First are getting a lot of Facebook support with their petition against Halal slaughter.

    They posted stuff about 'baby P' and people reposted it... It's stuff like this which makes people think they're reasonable human beings :/

    There's talk on their facebook page of 'invading' mosques in the North West and Scotland and continuing the crusades :rolleyes:

    I can't find it now. It's coming from an Animal Welfare position, saying that, as Britain is not a muslim country, we should not allow Halal slaughter.

    It's curious. About 4 or 5 of my FB friends find sympathy with Britain First (I don't define myself or my friends by their politics) and the Britain First FB site has been well busy today and there's been poisonous stuff flying all over Facebook.

    This is really weird stuff, there seems to be a lot of emphasis on the Christianity thing, more so than any British far-right movement in recent years.

    The Halal stuff has been knocking about for years - the EDL/NWI were all over KFC about this for a while. A couple of misleading sensationalised front page stories and the far-right get to stage a recruiting drive.

    Any reason the press are running with this at the moment, or does anyone know if it started out on Facebook, got a bit of attention and they picked it up from there?

    Curious, as Jason Owen who was convicted of the killing of Baby P was a member of the National Front.

    Its money. All the sponsored posts. The reason so many people are sharing this shit is it is turning up in everyone's feed. Posts along the lines of "Isn't it sad some cunts killed a drummer" and "this kids dead aren't the parents who did it shit" are the ones most of my "friends" seem to be sharing quite possibly without looking into the politics. The halal ones and the "oh noes this foreign person did a foreign crime here in what to them is a foreign country but got a medal for it because they're foreign but marines go to orison because they're not foreign" get a few shares. Someone I went to college with reposts all the Rigby grief porn, possibly because her son is in the army or some such, didn't respond when I mentioned that the Rigby family have spoken out against far right groups and got into a dispute with/about Britain First using his name as a vote winner on polling cards. I have been getting constant sponsored posts from them perhaps because I've visited "political pages". Must be costing Dowson a fortune.

    Depends what you're doing. The wearing of them alone is not an offence.
