Banks join culture war by banning patriotic customers

This week the British-based bank HSBC closed down two accounts linked to the new racial nationalist political party Patriotic Alternative – a personal account belonging to one of PA’s leaders Laura Towler, and the party’s official business account.

H&D understands complaints are being made to the relevant banking oversight authorities.

HSBC is the sixth largest bank in the world and the largest in Europe. It was founded in 1865 as the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank, making its initial fortune from opium trading.

Among the bank’s first board members was Thomas Dent, whose arrest for large-scale opium trading had triggered the first Opium War of 1839-42, in which British gunboats forced China’s Qing dynasty to accept the drug trade and to hand over Hong Kong to British control.

Arms dealer and Midland Bank consultant Stephan Kock

HSBC’s British high street operation was formerly Midland Bank, which was heavily involved in the seediest aspects of international arms trading during the 1980s via sinister fixer Stephan Kock, a Midland Bank consultant with mysterious connections to numerous intelligence services.

In the same week as HSBC closed down Patriotic Alternative accounts, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism alleged that HSBC “appear to have failed to adequately investigate concerns over a major fraud after an heiress accused her businessman father of draining millions from trust funds”.

It seems that major British banks have been more concerned with politically correct purges of law-abiding clients than with combating serious organised crime.

In January this year Barclays closed the personal account of H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton without giving notice – the first he knew of any problem was when his card stopped working, and even his local branch had no idea what had gone wrong! Further investigation revealed that the account had been closed by a secret unit inside the bank that refuses to give any reasons for its actions.

Leeds money-launderer Manni Hussain

British patriots might well ask in whose interests our banking system operates. Earlier this week the National Crime Agency accepted settlement of a case against a man they regard as a major money-launderer for organised crime. Leeds ‘businessman’ Manni Hussain was served with an Unexplained Wealth Order, sometimes known as a ‘McMafia order’. He handed over properties worth £10 million.

Until 2019 this crook owned the Wakefield Trinity rugby stadium, which he sold to the club last year for £3m, partly financed by Wakefield Council. According to the Yorkshire Post there is a continuing criminal investigation of this sale, after it was discovered that the stadium was actually worth less than half the purchase price.

The sheer scale of criminal money-laundering through British banks is mindboggling, and the NCA were forced to accept a settlement in which Mr Hussain retained some of his properties and cash, and didn’t go to jail. His close criminal associate, Bradford gangster ‘Meggy’ Khan, wasn’t so fortunate – he got life for murder.

Still, so long as ‘racists’ are denied a bank account, our rulers will sleep soundly in their beds.

VE Day – victory for whom?

Tomorrow – Friday 8th May – the United Kingdom ‘celebrates’ a bank holiday to mark the 75th anniversary of ‘Victory in Europe’, the surrender of German forces on the Western Front. (On the Eastern Front German commanders waited an extra day before surrendering – this was deliberate, so as to allow as many troops as possible to surrender to Anglo-Americans rather than ‘our’ murderous communist allies.)

In 2020 the usual suspects are rushing to claim political capital from this anniversary, even though celebrations will inevitably be muted – no pubs, no street parties, enforced ‘social distancing’.

A typical example is Cllr Sean Fielding, Labour leader of Oldham Borough Council, who proudly told the press:
“VE Day was a victory over the far-right in Europe that was only achieved with huge sacrifice.

“Even in these unusual circumstances it is therefore important to mark the 75th anniversary to both remember this sacrifice and reflect on what it was that our ancestors were fighting against.

“The values of freedom, democracy, tolerance and respect that triumphed 75 years ago are not a given, and so celebrating VE Day is an opportunity to remind ourselves of the importance of these values, reaffirm our commitment to upholding them and have the confidence to call out those who do not.”

Did Oldham’s wartime generation fight and die for this? Four ‘local’ teenagers (above) convicted of a horrific kidnap and torture. One of the gang, Ahsan Khan (bottom right) was stabbed to death in February this year.

In Cllr Fielding’s looking-glass world, the 450,000 UK and colonial dead (military and civilian) during the Second World War gave their lives so as to create his politically-correct multiracial dream. In fact, Britons believed they were fighting that war against Germany (and its Axis partners), not against the ‘far right’. In British political terms at that time, Churchill himself was on the ‘far right’ of the Conservative Party!

Would Oldhamers who died in that war even recognise their home town today? And if they could, might they not think that the 1945 ‘victory’ had produced a nightmare world?

Fortunately even in the ‘mainstream’ there are a few voices of sanity.

For example the London solicitor Alastair Meeks, writing at politicalbetting.com, criticises what he rightly describes as “mawkish nursery games” that dominate our national discourse concerning the war years, and suggests “it’s time to leave the Second World War in the history books”.

Who knows what the eventual impact of Covid-19 will be? One possibility is that we finally abandon toxic ‘multiculturalism’ and accept the need not only for short-term ‘social distancing’ but (as the National Alliance Bulletin recently recommended) long-term “racial distancing”.

If so, that might at long last produce a Britain worth fighting for.

National Alliance recommends “racial distancing”.

Left-wing trust accused of funding terror-linked ‘charity’

The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, funded by the famous Quaker chocolate family, is being investigated for donations to a charity in Northern Ireland which has been linked to dissident republican terrorism.

JRCT has given substantial grants over the years to the ‘anti-fascist’ organisations Searchlight and Hope not Hate. The latest controversy involves two sets of donations in Northern Ireland. Since 2014 the Trust has made regular grants to Teach na Failte, founded by the Irish Republican Socialist Party, political wing of the brutal terror gang Irish National Liberation Army (INLA). Teach na Failte even shares an office with the IRSP in Falls Road, Belfast. IRSP has close connections to the violent anti-fascist group ‘Red Action’, scrutinised last weekend by the Sunday Times.

In 2014 the Rowntree Trust gave Teach na Failte £149,915 followed by a further grant of £125,000 in 2017.

Other controversial donations by the Rowntree Trust involve a housing charity Conflict Resolution Services Ireland, whose Belfast offices have twice been raided by police investigating ties to the dissident republican terrorist group Oglaigh na hEireann, a splinter group from the Real IRA which was itself a breakaway from the IRA.

The chairman of trustees at CRSI, Gerry Ruddy, is on record describing the INLA’s murder of Conservative MP Airey Neave in 1979 as “a legitimate exercise”.

Gerry Ruddy, a leading official of the IRSP, political front for the INLA who murdered Airey Neave and many others, is chairman of the CRSI ‘charity’ trustees.

Earlier investigations of CRSI have suggested that (unlike Teach na Failte) it is not a straightforward front for hardline republicans linked to terrorism. CRSI’s situation is more complicated. There are allegations that it has worked to move people up the queue for local authority housing in Ulster in a racket helping to manufacture supposed ‘threats’ from paramilitaries (both republican and loyalist), and that not only the various IRA splinter groups but also drug dealers shamefully using the banner of the Loyalist Volunteer Force (LVF) have been involved in this corrupt abuse of publicly funded housing.

According to the Belfast Telegraph, official investigations involve not only CRSI but a government-funded service called ‘Base 2’ which ostensibly helps families to be rehoused if they have been threatened. Working at the CRSI’s Belfast office is Sean O’Reilly, once given a 30-month jail sentence for his role in a botched ‘punishment shooting’ on behalf of a republican terror gang.

 

Anti-fascist gangster paedophile jailed

(left to right) Red Action activist Denis Clifford; IRA-linked gangster Paddy Logan, shot dead in 1999; ‘anti-fascist’ and gangland assassin Dessie Noonan, stabbed to death in 2005; and Searchlight’s Manchester boss Steve Tilzey.

During the 1980s and 1990s, the Noonan family were the spearhead of an ‘anti-fascist’ reign of terror in Lancashire’s twin cities Manchester and Salford. Their power crumbled after 1999, when Noonan associate Paddy Logan (who had taken part in the gang’s brutal attack on Ulster Loyalists in the Rusholme district) was shot dead at his home in Withington.

Today the era of Noonan anti-fascism finally ended in disgrace, when the last head of the family – 54-year-old Dominic Noonan – was jailed for 11 years after being convicted of multiple paedophile offences.  One of Noonan’s victims was a ten-year-old boy.

Dominic Noonan’s brother Dessie (stabbed to death in 2005) was one of Britain’s most feared gangland assassins, responsible for more than twenty gangland murders, and was used by militant anti-fascists to threaten political opponents including BNP organisers. Believing that he was protected by his family’s notorious reputation for violence, Dominic Noonan thought none of his young victims would ever dare to testify against him.

Passing sentence today, Judge Martin Rudland told Noonan that following his first paedophile offence against a boy from a children’s home in 1981 he had “gained more confidence as your criminal lifestyle developed and your reputation and influence over others in that regard began to grow. It was in those circumstances that you abused (your second victim), aged 16 or 17, who you simply picked off the street for sexual gratification to use and discard at will and giving him a beating on the way. By then you were in your late 20s with your confidence gathering pace and not in the least fearful of brazen offending.”

“You were clearly determined to seek sexual gratification where and when you wanted it, and as a means of pursuing that end, and other objectives no doubt, you surrounded yourself with teenage boys. You gave them food, drink, drugs, occasional employment, and a sense of being part of your entourage.

“Inevitably the type of teenager who was drawn to such a life was either the criminally inclined or the vulnerable in search of stability, attention and perhaps some excitement.

“In their eyes you seemed to provide all three. The true picture is however, one of manipulation and grooming behaviour to provide you with an easy avenue for sexual misconduct.”

The truth is that organised ‘anti-fascist’ and Irish Republican terror gangs benefited from their association with Noonan and his criminal family, and undoubtedly helped draw young victims into his entourage.  H&D has reported on aspects of the Noonan scandal many times over the past fifteen years.  We salute the courage of those honest police officers and brave witnesses who helped bring this monster to justice.

Dominic Noonan after his release in 2014. Several cases against the “anti-fascist” gang boss collapsed, but he is now back behind bars.

One of Britain’s most notorious gangsters, who was in the vanguard of violent “anti-fascism”, is beginning an 11-year prison sentence for a series of crimes linked to his organised crime empire.  Dominic Noonan (who now spells his name “Domenyk”) presided over a reign of terror in the Manchester and Salford area. He was also convicted of “attempting to pervert the course of justice” after paying the parents of a young boy so that he would not give evidence about Noonan’s alleged sexual offences.

Noonan and his late brother – gangland assassin Dessie Noonan – had close ties to Irish republican terrorists and related “anti-fascist” activity in North West England which was at its peak in the 1990s. Dessie Noonan was killed by a black drug dealer in 2005.

Dominic Noonan – a well-known homosexual – surrounded himself with a coterie of teenage boys, and organised them in an orgy of rioting across Manchester following the death of Dessie’s nephew, black gangster Mark Duggan, in a controversial shooting by London police in 2011.

Heritage and Destiny readers will be familiar with the entire Noonan saga. We are only now able to report Dominic Noonan’s prison sentence – though he was jailed in September last year – because of a contempt of court order restricting reporting until a related case had concluded. Last year Dominic Noonan came to attention after the murder of another local gang boss Paul Massey, who shortly before his death had posted allegations online against Noonan. Massey had also been on the far left, but in the last year of his life had been a UKIP supporter.

Last week Noonan received a further two year sentence for perverting the course of justice, though he was acquitted of “engaging in a sex act in front of a minor”. Last September he was given a nine-year sentence for offences including blackmail and arson.

In 2004 Dominic Noonan was jailed for 9½ years for possession of a firearm: he was released in 2010 but briefly recalled to prison in 2011 for his role in that year’s riots.

While highlighting cases of hooliganism among their opponents (less among genuine nationalists than among the Islam-obsessed EDL and allied groups) “anti-fascists” are not keen to highlight their own close connections with notorious figures in Greater Manchester organised crime.  Coincidentally (or perhaps not) while the EDL gangsters and hooligans tend to support Manchester City (despite the club’s ownership by the Muslim ruling family of Abu Dhabi!), their “anti-fascist” opponents tend to be linked to the rival club Manchester United, and even produced an “anti-fascist” football fanzine, Red Attitude.

The most notorious “anti-fascist” gangsters in Greater Manchester were Salford’s Dessie Noonan, responsible for more than twenty gangland killings before his own murder in March 2005, and Manchester’s Paddy Logan, who like Noonan was involved with both Anti-Fascist Action and various Irish republican terrorist gangs before falling victim to an internal criminal feud, shot dead in his own bedroom in July 1999.

Sadly however nationalists must admit that criminality and perversion are not unknown in our own ranks. Ironically in the same week as the latest Noonan case, former BNP activist Ian Hindle was convicted of a second sexual offence in the past few years.

Ian Hindle’s first conviction for sex offences was in 2008, when he was given a three-year sentence for offences involving 14-year-old girls.  Also sentenced in this 2008 case was Hindle’s fellow BNP activist Andrew Wells, who was then a well-known organised crime figure in the Blackburn area. Perhaps the most serious aspect of this case is that Wells was also involved in recruiting (among both nationalists and criminals) for a security company employed by NATO forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Live by the MAC-10, die by the MAC-10

Greater Manchester Police continue to investigate the gangland assassination of notorious Salford criminal and violent ‘anti-fascist’ Paul Massey, one week after his death in a hail of bullets outside his home.

For the past year Massey had been an outspoken supporter of UKIP, a fact which H&D understands might owe less to ideological conviction and more to the family connections of a local UKIP candidate.  We trust that the mainstream press will summon up the courage to investigate these connections, and the much longer story of Massey’s ‘anti-fascist’ ties.

Ken Keating - Paul Massey

An unlikely UKIPper: Paul Massey with notorious Salford anarchist Ken Keating

Detectives investigating the Massey case will no doubt have the assistance of MI5, who began investigating his organised crime empire at least twenty years ago.  One important informant was Ben Alagha, a former spy for the Shah of Iran’s notorious secret service SAVAK. Alagha had taken refuge in London after the Iranian revolution and became a full-time criminal, eventually marrying the daughter of London mobster Henry Suttee.

Gangland gun-runner: Paul Massey's cousin Connie Howarth

Gangland gun-runner: Paul Massey’s cousin Connie Howarth

In May 1997 Suttee was observed by a police surveillance team at the home of a North London arms dealer, in a car driven by Paul Massey’s cousin Connie Howarth. Swooping on the car, police found three Ingram MAC-10 submachine guns and 360 rounds of ammunition. Another passenger in the car was Glasgow godfather Paul Ferris, a close associate of Paul Massey who (like the Salford ‘Mr Big’) ran a security company.

Some months earlier police had been gifted a connection to Ferris when one of his company’s employees got blind drunk on the Euston-Glasgow train. Railway police boarded the train at Preston to deal with this drunken Glaswegian and found he was carrying a Ceska pistol with silencer and ammunition.

The Glasgow-Manchester axis also had a Dublin connection: unsurprisingly Ferris was a Celtic supporter and Massey a devoted Manchester United fan.  They were among the large section of fans at both clubs with strong Irish Republican sympathies.

In March 2006, while Paul Massey was serving a prison sentence, one of his criminal cronies Bobby Spiers, a director of Massey’s Salford security firm PMS, planned a gangland murder from an exclusive hospitality box at United’s Old Trafford stadium.

During half-time at the Man Utd – Newcastle match, thinking he had the perfect alibi, Spiers coordinated with Massey’s cousin Connie Howarth, who was acting as his spotter inside a Salford pub, the Brass Handles.  Once she gave the word that target David Totton was inside the pub, Spiers instructed his hired gunmen (two members of a black gang controlling the heroin trade in Manchester’s West Indian ghetto, Moss Side) to move in.

They shot Totton in the face and chest but failed to kill him.  Other gangsters in the pub then overpowered the bungling would-be assassins and shot them dead with their own guns.

Last week’s killer didn’t botch his job.  It would not be surprising to learn that the chosen weapon was a reactivated MAC-10, which fires a thirty-round clip in only two seconds.

Manchester’s chief constable Sir Peter Fahy (due to retire in October and already seen as a lame duck) insists that his force has a grip on local gang crime, but suggests that there are at least three brutal gang wars under way on his patch, one of them over ‘respect’ or lack of it between rivals.

The late Mr Massey had recently shown little respect for his former ally in ‘anti-fascism’ and crime, Dominic Noonan, accusing Noonan of involvement in rape, gay paedophilia and being a police informer.

Not much honour it seems among ‘anti-fascists’, gunmen or thieves.

Anti-fascist gangster shot dead

Paul Massey – one of Britain’s leading organised crime figures – was shot dead near his home in Salford on Sunday night.

Massey was a former leading activist in the anarchist group Class War, and together with members of the infamous Noonan family had played a bizarre double role in violent ‘anti-fascism’ and straightforward brutal criminality.

MEN-Massey-e1438085008945

However during the past year he had posted several tweets supporting UKIP, and less than three weeks ago sent a tweet apparently accusing Dominic Noonan of being a paid police informant.

Massey tweet

Paul Massey’s mysterious tweet less than three weeks before his murder – seemed to accuse fellow gangster and ‘anti-fascist’ Dominic Noonan of being a police informant.

In 2012 Massey was a candidate for Mayor of Salford: his campaign manager Nic Seddon was later jailed for murdering his own parents. In April 2015 another close friend of Massey’s, former boxer Paul ‘One-Punch’ Doyle, received a 16-year jail sentence for his role as boss of a heroin and cocaine empire.

The murder of Paul Massey might spark a new Chicago-style gang war on the streets of North West England.  It should also lead to a long overdue examination of the links between this gangland milieu and ‘anti-fascist’ politics – but sadly it won’t: not in the mainstream media at any rate. However it wouldn’t surprise me to see the national press taking a close look at one or two of Massey’s UKIP associates and family friends…

‘Anti-fascist’ gangster arrested

Dominic Noonan with two young friends

Notorious anti-fascist gangster Dominic Noonan, whose family’s reign of terror in North West England has been detailed in previous issues of Heritage and Destiny, was arrested yesterday by Greater Manchester Police on suspicion of raping a man in the Manchester suburb of Stretford.

A few days earlier Noonan had been arrested for staging a publicity stunt in Manchester city centre: he had climbed to the top of a ferris wheel in Piccadilly Gardens and refused to leave for six hours, leaving tourists including a three year old child trapped and prompting a costly police and fire service operation which closed down part of the city.

The stunt was part of Noonan’s protest against being returned to prison for breach of his licence conditions.  He had earlier been conditionally released from a prison sentence for unlawful possession of a gun and ammunition.  49-year-old Noonan has more than forty criminal convictions for offences including armed robbery and fraud.  His brother Dessie was one of England’s most infamous gangland assassins, while other family members have controlled drug rackets across the city and were part of brutal gang wars that made Manchester the crime capital of Europe.

Dessie and Dominic Noonan were also known for their close ties to pro-IRA and ‘anti-fascist’ terrorist gangs who sought to intimidate nationalist activists.  Their criminal career was celebrated by the far left group Red Action.

This photo was taken in Manchester at the pro-IRA Manchester Martyrs march, also featuring local gangster and IRA supporter Paddy Logan.

In 2005 Dessie Noonan was stabbed to death by a rival (black) gangster, soon after being interviewed for a documentary by left-wing journalist Donal Macintyre.  Mark Duggan (nephew of Dessie Noonan) was shot dead in North London by police marksmen in 2011, prompting riots across the capital and in other inner city ethnic ghettos.

H&D cannot yet comment on the latest rape allegations against Dominic Noonan for legal reasons, but several local and national newspapers have reported that the alleged victim is a man in his 20s.  According to Greater Manchester Police: “Specially trained officers are supporting the victim and enquiries are continuing.”

The Terror Network

We all have different ways of celebrating Easter.  For J.J. Goldberg, a columnist for the long-established New York newspaper Jewish Daily Forward, this time of the year is Passover, which he describes as “the season of our [i.e. Jewish] deliverance”.

For Passover this year Mr Goldberg devotes his column to a celebration of the two bloodiest anti-British terrorist campaigns of the 20th century: the IRA murderers who targeted British civilians in a decades-long bombing campaign that killed children such as 3 year old Johnathan Ball and 12 year old Tim Parry; and their Zionist allies in the Irgun and Stern Gang, responsible for an even bloodier campaign against British servicemen and Arab civilians during the 1940s.

Yes – you read that correctly.  The IRA were close allies of the Zionist terror groups, a fact which has been obscured in recent years, when Palestinians naively believe that Sinn Fein / IRA are on their side, while some Ulster Loyalists feel an equally misguided affinity with Zionism (partly because of the pernicious Protestant heresy of Christian Zionism).

Johnathan Ball and Tim Parry, victims of the IRA bomb in Warrington, 1993

J.J. Goldberg knows the truth: and for once he not only admits it, but proudly proclaims it in the pages of America’s leading Jewish publication.

After celebrating the IRA’s Easter Rising of 1916, and urging his Jewish readers to “raise a glass (or four)” to the brave IRA “martyrs”, Goldberg writes:
Irish Republicans and Labor Zionists shared arms caches and safe houses in Belfast in the 1930s. In 1938 the Zionist militant leader Vladimir Jabotinsky came to Dublin to study anti-British guerrilla tactics with Robert Briscoe, the veteran Jewish IRA commander and future Dublin mayor. Briscoe later went to New York to raise money and support among Irish-Americans for Jabotinsky’s Irgun. Yitzhak Shamir, heading the pre-state Freedom Fighters of Israel, better known as the Stern Gang, took the code name “Michael” to honor Irish revolutionary Michael Collins.

Stern Gang killer Yitzhak Shamir took the alias “Michael Collins” in tribute to the IRA commander. Shamir later became Prime Minister of Israel.

At Heritage and Destiny we know all about Mr Briscoe and the criminal networks which he and others employed to raise cash and arms for both Irish and Zionist terrorists.  Heritage and Destiny subscribers will find out much more about this story later this year.

Briscoe died in 1969, but his son Ben Briscoe carried on the family’s tradition as a member of the Irish Parliament for Fianna Fail.

One of Briscoe’s fellow conspirators in Irgun terrorism, Benzion Netanyahu, died as recently as April last year aged 102. His son Benjamin Netanyahu is now Prime Minister of Israel.

The EDL and “anti-fascists”: hypocrisy and gangsterism

Stephen Garvey, EDL supporter arrested for conspiracy to murder two policewomen

Stephen Garvey, EDL supporter arrested for conspiracy to murder two policewomen

The brutal murder of two policewomen near Manchester has highlighted both the blight of drug-fuelled organised crime and the hypocrisy of two supposedly opposed political factions, the English Defence League and the “anti-fascist” movement.

The EDL’s effective deputy leader Kevin Carroll has just launched an election campaign for Police Commissioner of Bedfordshire, in what is by far the highest profile activity so far by the EDL’s political front, the British Freedom Party.  Mr Carroll’s manifesto for this Police Commissioner election contains all the usual law and order cliches, including “aggressively targeting hard drug dealing …to significantly reduce street robberies and other drug-related offences.”  He promises that “as Commissioner I will institute a crackdown on possession of knives and offensive weapons, so that parents need no longer worry for their children’s safety when they are out.”  Lest anyone think that his own criminal conviction might make him unsuitable for the job, Mr Carroll boasts that “my experience of liasing [sic] with police forces across Britain in organising public events has strengthened my admiration for their dedication and professionalism.”

An article promoting Mr Carroll’s campaign uses rather longer words than we have come to expect from the EDL, but includes one especially unfortunate cliche: We need to insist that people in positions of authority do not “shoot the messenger”.

One of Mr Carroll’s followers decided to shoot two policewomen instead.

EDL supporter and Manchester City football hooligan Stephen Garvey was arrested on September 19th for conspiracy to murder.  The previous day two policewomen – Constables Fiona Bone and Nicola Hughes – were lured to a home on the Hattersley estate, on the eastern fringe of Greater Manchester, where they faced a hail of gunfire and grenades.  Garvey’s friend and fellow gangster Dale Cregan has been arrested for the murders, as well as the earlier killings of two rival gangsters in the nearby areas of Droylsden and Clayton.

Garvey promoted the EDL on his Facebook page, and was involved in an EDL demonstration close to his home in Hyde on February 25th this year.  Kevin Carroll (now a Police Commissioner candidate) can be seen on this video speaking at the Hyde demonstration.

Some apologists for the EDL have already accused opponents of taking advantage of this EDL connection to gangland murder.  Yet the truth is that it is routine for EDL activists to be involved in violent crime.  Several of the EDL’s local organisers are career criminals, including drug dealers.  This is common knowledge to nationalists (including the present author) who have detailed knowledge of the serious crime problems blighting so many of our inner cities and council estates, and has been confirmed by retired police officers speaking to Heritage and Destiny on condition of anonymity.

Manchester City's EDL gang included Stephen Garvey and other career criminals.

Manchester City's EDL gang included Stephen Garvey and other career criminals.

Had genuine nationalist movements – even the BNP – had this sort of criminal in their ranks, the political wing of the police (i.e. Special Branch and other special intelligence units) would have targetted such people for heavy treatment, and the “anti-fascist” media would have exposed their every connection.

Yet the EDL has been given an easy ride.  For that matter the extraordinary ties between Paul Weston – leader of the EDL’s political wing – and an especially violent terrorist group based in Canada and the USA – the Jewish Defense League (JDL) – have been ignored by the mainstream media and the “ant-fascist” industry, despite being fully documented in a detailed article on this site.

Local sources suggest at present that Stephen Garvey was not a major player in the EDL – just an average grassroots supporter.  However this latest embarrassment is sure to cause further problems for Kevin Carroll’s Police Commissioner campaign, and raises more questions as to the long term viability of the British Freedom Party.

If the EDL is hypocritical about crime, what is one to make of the opportunistic article by Simon Cressy, of the Hope not Hate website (formerly Searchlight).  Mr Cressy highlighted the Daily Telegraph‘s revelation that “an EDL supporter has been arrested in relation to the murders of PC Nicola Hughes and PC Fiona Bone,” and we can expect him (or his associates) to make further capital from the affair when they discover Garvey’s involvement in the EDL’s Hyde demonstration.

Strangely “anti-fascists” are less keen to highlight their own close connections with notorious figures in Greater Manchester organised crime.  Coincidentally (or perhaps not) while the EDL gangsters and hooligans tend to support Manchester City (despite the club’s ownership by the Muslim ruling family of Abu Dhabi!), their “anti-fascist” opponents tend to be linked to the rival club Manchester United, and even produced an “anti-fascist” football fanzine, Red Attitude.
