Member of far-right group which accuses Muslims of paedophilia sentenced to 17 years for sexual abuse of girl.
A senior member of the English Defence league (EDL), and a contributor to a plethora of far-right social media groups, has been sentenced at the Old Bailey to 17 years today after he abused a schoolgirl 100 times and left her feeling “every day was Groundhog Day”.
Leigh McMillan, 46, from Milton Keynes, groomed his 10-year-old victim with cigarettes and drugs before subjecting her to a “spiral of sexual abuse” during the mid-1990s.
McMillan attacked the girl as she lay on her mother’s bed and and warned: “You mustn’t tell your mum “she’d be really upset.” He assaulted the schoolgirl around 100 times.
McMillan, who used the name ‘McMillen’ on social media, is a lead figure in the EDL’s most unwanted ‘Lee Rigby’ campaign – a campaign to use the soldier’s death for further hatred.
McMillan is a popular figure in the far right, so much so that a number of fellow far-right figures have been trying desperately to cover up his child abuse.
For example, Margate nazi Gary Field has asked his racist colleagues not to let anyone find out McMillan was an EDL member.
