No surprises last night when people loyal to English Defence League (EDL) founder Stephen Lennon split what remained of the group to form another group that will be exactly the same as the one they split from.
Twelve "tools" (their own words) have come together to form "United People of Britain (UPB)". The problem with this section of the far-right has always been themselves not understanding the difference between England, Britain a Wetherspoons and knife and fork. The United People of Britain will continue to work for the better interests of the English, blah, blah, blah. Like the Tory party.
Among the twelve tools is Billy Charlton who until yesterday, ran the Sunderland Defence League (SDL). Charlton is a notorious drunken ranter at far-right demonstrations and SDL had until recently been linked to the drugs gang "North West Infidels." It is understood (though not confirmed) that Charlton jumped ship after not being invited to a series of sit-down luncheons that group are having to discuss who will lead their depleted gang once the courts have dealt fully with their drug dealing and violence.
This UPB should not be confused with the other UPB who are the United Patriots of Britain. The new group has hoovered up a series of one man operations around the country. Most of those behind the new group are also active in Lennon's Pegida. None more so than Bill Weir who is a regular speaker at Pegida's under attended and rain-soaked rallies in carparks. Weir was the man honest enough to admit that the EDL were hoping to make a few bob out of the murder of Lee Rigby.
Another of the new group's leadership is currently on bail after storming his local church a week ago and making a bit of a tit of himself.
The rest are a series of human embarrassments who would not look out of place..... in the EDL. Aside from Charlton, they are all active in Pegida.
Splitting the EDL will obviously please Pegida who were having some trouble working with Lennon's old chums. There has been a few weeks of uncomfortable manoeuvres behind the scenes in Pegida and its supporter groups, namely Liberty GB, led by the quite brilliant Paul Weston. Having excused himself from their most recent demonstrations, word is he was back talking to Paul Golding again about the possibility of moving into a leadership position in Britain First. The murder of MP Jo Cox halted those negotiations as Weston then found himself leading a party that was going to stand in Cox's constituency against convention and general decency.
Yesterday the English Democrats announced they would also stand in Batley and Spen. Although yes, in the absence of the mainstream parties in the forthcoming by-election it does stink of sick opportunism, this decision is more about the infighting going on behind closed doors in Pegida. Both the English Dems and Liberty GB operate in the backroom office of Pegida, though there has been a push by some to oust Ann Marie Waters and in return, Lennon's PA Hel Gower in recent weeks.
Interesting but hardly exciting times, again. This new group will be no more dynamic and dangerous than it already was. With the Infidels all but completely going, going and gone to gaol and Pegida floundering, the most sensible thing to do was to reinvent the wheel and give a rust bucket a lick of paint.
After reading yesterday's blog, someone very kindly sent us a picture they hope illustrates just how drunk Ian Crossland was when leading the EDL in London last weekend. We've actually never seen him any other way.

Saturday was a poor day out for the English Defence League (EDL), even by their low standards.
Their London demonstration was not only poorly attended (even by their poor standards) but descended into a series of drunken brawls. That is standard.
Why the EDL persist with being the EDL is a bit of a mystery. They broke it and it has been beyond repair for a good few years now. Most of those who attended their marches and demonstrations in the past were soon convinced that nothing could be achieved by boozing and brawling in car parks. The endless splits gave and raised no opportunity to advance or improve either the quality of the membership of the group's abilities.
Despite, for many, the EDL being the first and most significant symptom that anti-Muslim hatred in a small section of society could boil over into rampaging and violence and even become a social movement (if that's your thing) it has achieved nothing.
The new leadership team of Ian Crossland and Alan Spence are now under increasing pressure from what remains of a small number of EDL addicts. Tonight a small number of activists will announce another split if they fail to remove Spence and Crossland. Most of those involved in this new split have still in some way, an attachment to the EDL's founder Stephen Lennon (aka Tommy Robinson), indeed many are also active in Lennon's new group, Pegida UK.
One of those lining himself up to be the new leader is Walsall based Liam Jones. Jones, a veritable and rotund array of colourful clothing has already distinguished himself in "patriotic" circles by being photographed drunk and with urine patches on his clothes.
Much of it is playing out on social media, but the current leadership do have their supporters too. The threats are starting now and should well and truly boil over by the time the beer gardens are crowded tonight.
They really are the new National Front. EDL News covered much of the argument here:

Who could forget Peter Kramer, the resplendently black-clad and sexually inactive fascist with a uniform fetish who came to Liverpool last year for a riot?
Peter is the head drongo in 'Right Wing Resistance' a bunch of grown men with play stations who want to save the world from black people. They dress in all black and sew patches on their uniforms. They prance a lot, too. It's a world wide group of weirdos. About ten of them.
Their modus operandi, other than sitting on the internet in big boots is as a self-appointed mimic of the Nazi Ordnungspolizei.Heady stuff. Like all things daft and crappy, we were bound to get a branch of it here. They can't be doing very well as the Huffington Post are yet to assign somebody to follow them around all day. The British leader (head of Kleenex) is Gary Crane, an unemployable middle aged man who likes to hang around at bus stops bullshitting to teenagers and poncing fags off them.
The main activity of Kramer and Crane is to fill the internet with lies about their big armies, their big boots and millions of followers. They're even sadder versions of Gary Raikes!
When Kramer came to England last year to watch lots of Boneheads getting caved in at the train station in Liverpool, he made a series of promises to people in the pub. One was that he would stage a massive rally in the Swedish capital, Stockholm. He also told people that lots of blonde Swedish women would love to have sex with unemployed English layabouts in ill- fitting uniform and boots. He implored his English brethren to join him. They all readily said they would and Kramer said if they did go to Stockholm, he would put them up in some log cabins where they could get drunk and play with themselves.
Well, Kramer has announced that this weekend is to be the weekend of his mass rally. There's not been much interest in it in Sweden because like here, even the fascists think this kind of kinky stuff is bad for business. But this has not stopped Kramer. Writing on the group's international web page he is very excited about the potential for his British followers to turn up. In fact, he would just like anyone to turn up. As he wrote "If you say yes to come . Please come . You can all do me a favor. Invite your friends and other organizations to this demo." And if that isn't desperate enough, how about this list of luminaries he claims is joining him: "So far we have Infidels of Britain joining us, South East Alliance of the UK, AIFEnglishLions UK. EDL. RWR UK,RWR Finland RWR Spain., and RWR Sweden. "
This should be interesting. The EDL have a demo in London and the Infidels have a do in Sunderland that day. The South East Alliance may go, but their current leader is on police bail (as are most of the far-right in Britain) and since Brexit, the price of a pint of their favourite proletarian beverage has risen to about £8 in Sweden.
Kramer is still promising to lay on accomodation but it is now a tent by the airport. But he has added booze to the list of things to entice British Boneheads to spend upward of £400 to head to Stockholm to get filled in by Nordic anti-Nazis.
Last night Kramer was making frantic phone calls to his "friends" in England, begging them to get to Stockholm. Why are habitual liars always surprised when they get lied to in return? Anyway, let's see if any of our lads are brave enough to go. Here's a reminder of the last time some of far-right ended up in Stockholm.
Seriously lads, IKEA is much better in Sweden.

Much ado in the newspapers over the last week or so about a rise in the far right in Britain. Apparently the far right is everywhere. If only it was that simple – that every act of racism, and outrageous stupidity was the action of a minor and fringe part of society. I guess believing that allows people to casually ignore that racism has been on the rise for a while now, and has in fact been described as "institutional" previously.
The far right that people are taking about is of course, the likes of the British National Party (BNP) and the English Defence League (EDL). Yes, they are nasty, but rising? There's not a steroid shot big enough to raise those dinosaurs from the dead.
But everyone is at it; today The Guardian even had a video telling us that Brexit will somehow lead to a rise again of the BNP. To prove their point, there was even a short video clip of the BNP's former leader Nick Griffin. You remember him, right? He's the guy currently trying to sell his home and move overseas.
One scientific magazine even went as far as to Nova Scotia to find someone to tell them that the conditions are exactly the same here as they were in Germany in the 1930's. Wow, that's research for you...
I'm sorry to tell many people, that the far right is still tiny, and the only rise it has done was to get out of bed in some prison this morning to slop out.
The conditions for a rise of the far right are definitely ripe. They have been for ages and no doubt, if this was the 1990's they would rise (like they did). So why isn't it?
Our report from earlier this year is still the most accurate assessment of the state of the far right in this country. It's nasty, it's active, it's violent and has been for decades. But it is less than a quarter of the size it was in 2009 when the BNP had 60-odd councillors (some were very odd) a seat on the Greater London Assembly and two MEPs. And I’ll tell you something else; a large number of those old BNP members were not flag waving, Sieg-Heiling Hitlerites. Sure, their party was, but it did its best to hide that fact for as long as humanely possible.
I did an interview with TIME magazine earlier this week that gives a pretty good outline as to what we are experiencing. Swastika-waving boneheads do not have the sole rights to racism in this country, and to suggest they do, is infantile. Wake up!
Does this video we found of serial wally Paul Prodromou (aka Paul Pitt) from a couple of weeks back look like the far right is rising? No, but they are probably enjoying an unwarranted bit of spotlight from people who have gleefully ignored them for years and were suddenly handed a video camera and some old footage.
We've had an explosion of racism since the EU Referendum, that is true. It probably was not a good idea to hold the Referendum while the football was on. That leads to jingoism and violence at the best of times. Perhaps people think racism was merely confined to Facebook?
The main problem the media has is that it can only report (however badly) on the far right if they are saying it is rising. Otherwise, what is newsworthy? Previously ignored, we must now expect every sighting of a bonehead or one of their leaflets and stickers (they never stopped putting them out, you know) to lead to the mass assumption that a siege of Stalingrad is somehow just around the corner.
Even when changes of tactics and personnel become apparent, they assume that a change is either a change in fortune or an indication that millions of people are queuing up to be Britain’s next Fuhrer.
I hate to sound like a Brexiter, but we are not Europe; this is not Germany and this is not the 1930’s. Much of Nick Griffin’s more palatable rhetoric from the last decade is now so mainstream that you probably wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between him and a local election candidate on your doorstep. To redress that, Griffin’s gone back to even more extreme ways and was last seen stuffing his face with Goulash in an upmarket restaurant in Budapest (at the EU’s expense).
By my rough count there are around 200 far-right activists currently in gaol and another 40 either on bail or due for sentencing soon. Their places are not being filled, but they are becoming more and more desperate. They are not even interested in elections any more. They’d prefer a race war. They always have, even before Brexit. Even while you were opening your Christmas presents last December.
The language and rhetoric now worrying us, should worry us. But perhaps we should worry about the rise of a mainstream where this language, narrative and behaviour has until now been so apparently acceptable.

When they're not drug dealing, wife beating or glue sniffing, the National Front (NF) manage to occasionally have political disagreements too.
Next year the party will celebrate its 50th anniversary by smashing up a pub somewhere. That it has survived this long is a miracle. Since its inception it has had well over a dozen serious splits and possibly another two dozen that verged on the ridiculous. Even for the National Front.
In fact, just about every blog we have done on the National Front over the last three years has been about its drug dealing, wife beating etc, etc. That it ever had time for a little nazism was always a surprise.
The particular incarnation/faction that has split only won control of the name last year in rather acrimonious circumstances. We've been predicting a split since after last year's General Election, when some sections of the party fell in with the wholly disreputable drug gang, the North West Infidels.
Then along came National Action early this year and with it some wholly unsavoury pastimes around the sexual abuse of young men. As the NF fought amongst themselves this year, there were violent visits to homes and pubs by rival gangs who were not entirely sure as to who or what they were being loyal to.
Last year, Simon Biggs left the party after throwing kicks and punches at two other members of the party during an activity.
The last month had been relatively quiet in terms of the NF. Those members who are not on bail or already in prison have been keeping their heads down. However, things appear to have changed when on Saturday there was much reporting that the NF had turned out in Newcastle (as they often do) with a large banner.
I can confirm that although the banner said it was the National Front, it was in fact the remnants of another tiny nazi splinter group, the Northern Patriotic Front (NPF). Holding the banner was none other than Simon Biggs, the former NF man with a string of convictions ranging from burglary to violent assault. In fact, Biggs had left the NPF for the NF some years previously, stealing their membership lists.
Now it looks as if the NPF and sections of the NF have merged to form a new gang. No doubt with stolen membership lists, flags, plant pots and sausage rolls. This group is apparently friendly to National Action so it would probably be best to keep your kids away from them. They have ingeniously called themselves 'Northern Nationalists.'
What's leff of the NF (not a lot) are furiously claiming that Simon 'Biggsy' Biggs stole their banner. He denies it. He has even published pics on his new website to show he did not use the NF's banner. A pic we came across proves something a little different...
Kevin Watmough who has a history of campaigning for the release of paedophiles and downloading pornography appears to thrown his inconsiderable weight behind this new group too.
Same old rubbish. Just another name.

Did you hear the joke about Polish and British neo-Nazis out together in London campaigning against the EU?
You couldn't make it up. These wallies probably want to deport themselves. Kevin Layzell, serial nazi wally and self-confessed police grass (with a dodgy criminal conviction) managed to get this close to a memebr of the opposite sex.

News of the foul mouth that is Paul Prodromou often appears on our pages.
He is the most unsuccessful organiser in the history of the far-right. And for a grown man, he has a very filthy mouth.
Paul likes to dream. Paul likes to pretend. Everything he does is for 'unity' but everything he touches turns to dust.
His little group, the 'South East Alliance' (SEA) are experiencing more than a little trouble at the moment. People have had enough of Prodromou ranting and raving. Thing in particular came to a head after his laughable attempt to regenerate Dover- the town whose reputation has been damaged by the riotous behaviour of Paul's colleagues back in January.
People have continued to snipe that Podromou still has not been arrested for what is best described as his 'marginal' behaviour and activities. And it hurts.
Last night Prodromou ranted and raved that he had to drive an empty mini bus to the Rock Against Immigration gig he organised. Where were his supporters? How can a grown man dress and behave like he has done in the picture at the top of the article and still expect to be taken seriously?
His former followers are walking away as they have had enough of him. It's believed one of the issues is regarding the administration of the 'Prisoners Support Group' that has been set up to raise funds for fascists in prison. This dubious honour has been passed to Prodromou's rival, Joe Turner (aka Jeff Marsh). The split is exacerbated further by a divide between those who have been sent to prison for their activities after pleading guilty and those who are holding out by refusing to plead guilty.
Following is a private video address that Prodromou issued last night in desperation to his follower(s). Be warned, he is a very angry and foul mouthed individual. He'll be even angrier when he sees we have this video. So much for Unity, eh?

A clearer profile is beginning to emerge of Thomas Mair, the man police have arrested for the murder of Batley and Spen MP, Jo Cox. A man in his 50s who apparently struggled with mental illness for many years, Mair was also a long time far-right sympathiser.
Overnight our colleagues at the Southern Poverty Law Centre released information that showed Mair had bought manuals and other materials linked with terrorism from one of America’s (and the world’s) most virulent neo-nazi movements, the National Alliance (NA).
In 1999 Tommy Mair bought a manual from the Alliance which, among other things, included instructions on how to build a pistol.
Over a number of years from the late 1990s until the mid-2000s, invoices from National Vanguard Books, the NA’s printing imprint, show that Mair spent over $600. These included manuals instructing readers on the “Chemistry of Powder & Explosives,” “Incendiaries,” and a work called “Improvised Munitions Handbook." Under “Section III, No. 9” (page 125) of that handbook, there are detailed diagrams on constructing a “Pipe Pistol For .38 Caliber Ammunition” from materials that could be purchased from general hardware stores.
That Mair purchased this material in 1999 is probably indicative of his mindset and suggests that he was far more politically-hardline and calculated than a man driven to a violent act through mental illness alone.
The neo-nazi scene in Britain in 1999 was very different from what it is now.
Throughout the 1990s the dominant ideology had been one of confrontational race war, with the State itself being far more of a target than minority communities. While Combat 18 (C18), a hardline neo-Nazi group that had emerged in 1992, was on the decline, its violent rhetoric and anti-State stance had permeated throughout the far right here and in much of Europe.
Fuelling C18 ideology were the teachings and materials from the National Alliance, whose leader, William Pearce, wrote The Turner Diaries, a fictional account of a race war in the US which quickly became a bible for violent neo-nazis. The book acted as an inspiration for the Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh and the London nailbomber David Copeland.
The book and associated writings by the likes of Louis Beam, inspired people linked to the British National Party (BNP), Combat 18 and the National Socialist Movement (NSM) – to which London nail bomber David Copeland belonged – in this country.
Bringing much of this literature into the UK was a British branch of the National Alliance, led by Paul Jeffries and John Cato, which ran a nazi booklet called Life Rune Books.
Certainly while Mair was ordering material from the National Alliance in the US, Jeffries was living no more than a couple of miles away.
Mair appears to have left little identifiable footprint in the UK that we are currently aware of. He was linked to a number of small groups on the very periphery of the extreme far-right, including the Springbok Club, which served as pro-Apartheid outlet for South African ex-patriots and their supporters. It has also been claimed that Mair has attended meetings of the ultra-Conservative Swinton Circle/London Swinton Circle.
More will no doubt come to light as investigations continue into a man described as a “loner” by those who lived near him.
In the immediate aftermath of the murder and arrest of Mair, a number of witnesses have claimed that the shouted ‘Britain First’ or ‘Put Britain First’ at the time of the attack. As far as we are aware, Mair is not a member of Britain First, the far-right militant Christian group run by Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen. But we are also acutely aware that few people on the periphery or even active in such circles actually take out ‘memberships’.
What we do know is that Jo Cox was a brave and principled MP who was opposed to the politics and hatred of Britain First. When the group marched through Dewsbury in West Yorkshire in January this year, she tweeted of how proud she was of the people of Dewsbury and Batley (part of her constituency) for facing down the “hatred and racism of the extreme right with calm unity.”
We also know that Britain First has been targeting public officials, MPs and councillors, which it deems to be “occupiers”. Ostensibly this was in reference to Muslims, but there is no doubt that pictures of Cox with a shawl around her head and in celebratory company of Muslim constituents on the night she was elected would have infuriated Britain First. In a press release the group issued in May, it promised to “track down” and take “militant action” against those it did not approve of.
And we also know, that in preparation of some kind of ‘Holy War’, Britain First was out in Wales only last weekend dressed in military clothing and training with combat knives.
Across the far right, Cox’s murder appears to have been welcomed, with many believing disgustingly that she got what she deserved. Many of these online statements, plus some other threats to MPs, have been passed on to the police.
Nick Griffin, the former leader of the BNP, shared a post on social media last night that described Cox as a warmonger who was somehow responsible for immigration and crime. It finished by extolling people to ‘Vote Leave’ with very little regard for the misery, hurt and suffering this murder and those words cause.
And National Action have just weighed in again, on Vote Leave's behalf.
Jo Cox stood for everything decent in society. The reaction of the British far right to her murder shows that there is still a lot of work to do.

Many of us are still desperately trying to comprehend the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox, the member for Batley and Spen.
The entire political process has ground to a halt as members from all parties join us in trying to come to terms this horrendous crime.
Words can hardly do justice to something so vile, so indescribable and wicked.
That is except, for the very sick fringes of our society, from where it is alleged the very killer of an elected member of our parliament comes from.
Daniel Hall from Sutton in Ashfield, is from the 'Notts Casual Infidels' gang, a hybrid of both the English Defence League (EDL) and the nominally northern west based 'Infidels' gangs.
He has taken to social media to welcome the murder of an MP and predict more of the same. Hall, who is the brother of a UKIP and Pegida activist named Jordan, only yesterday put on social media a threat that another Labour MP needed to "disappear."
Also today, the South East Alliance greeted the murder of Cox with the hope that her killer was a Muslim.
Do we really need these sick individuals in society?
David Coppin is a well-known member of the EDL who likes to drink his days away in 'Sheldons' a pub at the top of Margate High Street, in Margate. He is another sick individual who has taken pleasure in the murder.
These words are like their deeds. A warning that our democracy is at risk from both sides of a soiled coin.

Since the homophobic murders in Orlando, the far right in the UK has been treading on egg shells.
A Muslim man with a gun has murdered 49 people and injured dozens of others. This has pleased them greatly. In their world view, this is all that Muslims do. That Omar Mateen's victims were from the LGBT community has made it slightly harder for them to engage in their pastime of grief tourism.
There was no sign of far-right leaders around any of the very dignified vigils held across the country. No sign of the likes of Paul Golding with his head bowed and rattling his tin or Paul Prodromou, either (who has taken to producing a t-shirt for each and every occasion he views on his television).
It's been very hard for the hard-line homophobes of our far-right to show any sympathy at all for the victims, in fact. It was as if, in their view, it was a victimless crime.
The British National Party (BNP) pointed out that Omar Mateen's victims were at a gay night club. They did not condemn the killing; they merely reiterated that the killer was a Muslim. They mentioned it once. No endless pictures of victims we so often see them cut, paste and plaster after an atrocity.
One regular commentator on the BNP Facebook page blamed the victims, because if they had not yet discovered that all Muslims were evil, they (the victims) must be "thick or something." Another joked that the night club was "really bangin!" on the night of the attack.
Britain First got their Deputy leader Jayda Fransen to make a video address. "It's another Islamist terror attack," she pawed down the camera. Fransen criticised the American President, Barack Obama, for his own address on the issue, because he had the temerity to declare he was "still waiting for the facts of the investigation. We've reached no definitive judgement on the precise motivations for the killer."
Which one would assume, in the aftermath of such an outrage and tragedy would be the sensible and proper thing to do. Not so for Fransen. Seeing that Obama is being sensible, she repeated a number of lies and slurs against the American President.
"How dare you have the audacity to question the motive, incentive and association of this man?" she asked of Obama. "There is no question what the motive and the incentive for this disgusting act was" she continued.
Instead of homophobia, Fransen declared the motivation behind the killings was Islam. This "barbaric act" her words, was "due to Sharia Law."
Finally, there were "thoughts and prayers" for the dead, but not before she got in a "thank God" for Donald Trump. So it wasn't homophobia, it was a mixture of President Obama and Islam.
Nick Griffin, the former leader of the BNP and now a freelance hatemonger around Europe, was understandably cool on the subject. Let's us not forget that Griffin was the leader of the BNP when David Copeland carried out a murderous nailbomb attack against the gay community in London back in 1999, killing three people (including a pregnant woman). Upon seeing a vigil to Copeland's victims back in 1999, Griffin wrote: "The footage of dozens of "gay" demonstrators flaunting their perversion in front of the world's journalists showed just why so many ordinary people find these creatures so repulsive."
As a result of that, Griffin was outed himself by his former boss Martin Webster, but he no longer likes to talk about it. Instead, like many on the far right, Griffin prefers to propagate the idea that the murder of gay people by a Muslim is somehow like the proverbial chicken coming home to roost. Again; no sympathy or empathy for the victims. But who would ever even want it? Griffin preferred to show a tweet from Conservative commentator Douglas Murray instead.
The supreme homophobe of all, Britain First founder Jim Dowson, took his sweating self to YouTube. Dowson is a man who for years has tormented and terrorised gay people. Addressing the Internet as a "real Christian" (the sort you will not find in any real church) Dowson feared gun owners in the United States would once more come under pressure because of the actions of a "crazed, Islamic gunman."
But Dowson at least acknowledged the murders were homophobic. "Absolutely," he said, looking off camera for a second. Dowson admitted that he has counter-protested at Gay Pride parades because, as a tax-payer, he has had to "pay for these parades." Presumably, gay people do not pay tax. He also forgets that tax payers also foot the bill for his Orange Order marches and are still footing the bill that has run into millions of pounds for the Orange Order's continued protest at Twaddel Avenue and of course, the 'Flag Dispute' – two very taxing events in which he has played a large part when he has been at home in Northern Ireland.
Dowson then moved on to describe his opposition to gay people as not just about being a tax payer, but his homophobia being led by "theology."
Like every other far-right person, Dowson now seeks to blame the "left and and the liberals" for the murders in Orlando. His apparent mission in life has been to teach gay people the error of their ways. In doing so, Dowson complains that he has been hit in the head with bottles when trying to convince gay people to mend their ways, and even admits to being hit in the head with "a giant, candy dildo" during one of his protests.
For the other seven minutes, Dowson goes on about how he has gay friends and family members and even goes for a pint with gay people, despite disrupting their weddings, civil ceremonies and general all around life.
But, you see, he does not murder anyone. He condemns the killings but also the victims. What a joyous pint that must be for gay people supping with Dowson.
It now turns out that this was not the work of some jihadist but instead the hateful actions of a disturbed individual with a great many issues.
That is why the crocodiles are still dangerous.
