The English leader of the Australian Defence League and “illegal non-citizen” Martin Brennan appears to be one step closer to being deported back to England today following the dismissal of his appeal against an earlier adverse ruling. Tomorrow his followers have promised to blockade the Maribyrnong Detention Centre in protest at their foreign leader’s rejection by Immigration authorities.
If any of them actually turn up, that is.
Back in E E England, E E EDL supporters have been arrested in Plymouth after allegedly assaulting a Kurdish family, while Stephen Yaxley-Lennon’s sugar-daddy, Alan Lake, is in a minor spot of bother after some blather he posted last year has re-entered circulation via The Observer (EDL leader demanded debate on killing David Cameron and archbishop, Jamie Doward, Vicus Burger and James Burton, July 30, 2011):
On 23 May 2010, Alan Lake posted on his 4 Freedoms website an article outlining his belief that “in 20 or 30 years the UK will start to fragment into Islamic enclaves”. He went on: “It’s time we decide… who we will force in the Islamic enclaves (and who we will execute if they sneak out.) By forcing these liberal twits into those enclaves, we will be sending them to their death at worst, and at best they and their families will be subjected to all the depredations, persecution and abuse that non-Muslims worldwide currently ‘enjoy’ in countries like Pakistan… It will be great to see them executed or tortured to death.”
While unpleasant, such views are routinely expressed by EDL and ADL supporters; if anything’s remarkable about Lake’s joining them it’s that he did so in public.
Finally, Malatesta has some thoughts on the EDL & Norway & Moar here.
