Over the past few days the name of the alleged EDL member Daryl Hobson has been mentioned in various media outlets in connection with claims that the Norwegian terrorist, Anders Behring Breivik met members of the English Defence League and visited the UK in 2010 to take part in EDL demonstrations.
Viewers of last night's BBC flagship programme Newsnight will have seen EDL leader Stephen Lennon (aka Tommy Robinson) tell the interviewer Jeremy Paxman that he (Lennon) did not know who Daryl Hobson was and that Hobson was merely a "random" member of the EDL's Facebook group.
Lennon made a number of other claims that the BBC decided not to challenge.
Well, pictured above is a photograph of Lennon with the Hobson himself. Yes, the "random" and allegedly unknown to Lennon, Daryl Hobson.
Lennon is reported to be charging sections of the media £50 for an interview. Let's hope it is on a sale or return agreement. Based on this evidence, he is selling faulty merchandise.

Newsnight team should have prepared better. Paxman and the researchers are usually forensic but not on this occasion. Why? We have an ideology shared with Breivik. We have his association with Lennon's organisation and its members. We have dozens of threats of violence, murder and rape by EDL members. They didn't just miss an open goal; what concerns me is they didn't even shoot in the right direction.

I love Lennon's "Can't vouche for 100k Facebook Group" defense when evidence of wrong doing pops up. It's a real comic book slogan...

It would be far better if Daryl Hobson spoke direct to media, he should go public.
