The alleged disruption of the meeting is said to have happened on the evening of September the 22nd last year after the SWP, a trotskyite communist party that believes in violent revolution and the overthrow of the established order, called a meeting to discuss ways to combat nationalist groups in the Tyneside area such as the EDL and the British National Party (BNP). [To the SWP, ‘combat’, as well as ‘mobilisation’ and even ‘protest’, mean violence against enemies.] The SWP is also a key component of the far-left 'Unite Against Fascism' (UAF) campaign group which holds violent protests against the EDL and BNP and has promised to "smash" both organisations in the past. [It is not really a ‘component’ of UAF – the SWP created and runs the UAF. I can even be said that today the UAF is the SWP, or the SWP is UAF.]
More than twenty supporters of the EDL also gathered in the courtroom for the brief hearing at the magistrates court in the centre of Newcastle before it was transferred to crown court for a further hearing on Wednesday, the 27th of April. Following the court appearance, some of the supporters attempted to hand out leaflets to passers-by about the case, but were swiftly surrounded by the large police presence who had been guarding the court. [The truth is dangerous. That’s why the police acted on the handing-out of leaflets. Actually, I think the EDL should always stress that it is the police chiefs, commissioners and chief constables, not the 'rank and file' police, that make these orders. Such people have been indoctrinated with political correctness and they have an absolute duty towards multiculturalism – all of which ends up with a virtual persecution of the EDL.]
The court heard that the ten men had allegedly gathered in a nearby public house before trying to attend the SWP meeting. They were prevented from entering the Irish Centre by club stewards and a disturbance allegedly broke out. One of the defendants was given the wrong court date and had already appeared in court a week earlier after a Northumbria Police and Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) mix-up! Apparently, despite charging the ten EDL men, Northumbria Police still haven't questioned the club stewards involved in the disturbance prompting some concern about the future conduct of the trial following the earlier mix-up between the police and CPS. [Learn about the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). It often works as the Leftist wing of the legal system (if it ain't Leftist already) and the embodiment of politically-correct and multicultural virtue.]
The local newspaper, the Evening Chronicle, also described the ten defendants as "right-wing extremists" in an obvious attempt to influence the outcome of the trial. [Most local journalists are either pretty thick or lazy. Thus they don’t mind getting info about the EDL from revolutionary communists like SWP/UAF. If the UAF/SWP, Searchlight, Hope Not Hate, even the explicitly named Communist Party, tells them that the EDL is ‘far right’, then that’s all these regional journalists need to know. Similarly, accepting this info without any further investigation will give them extra time to get down to the pub or allow them to pursue other more interesting and financially rewarding stories.]
The Evening Chronicle is published by ncjMedia, a division of Trinity Mirror, which also publishes the Daily Mirror newspaper which broadly supports the Labour party. Trinity Mirror was once owned by the disgraced fraudster, Robert Maxwell, now dead, who was once a Labour MP. [The Daily Mirror officially supports the Communist Party’s, that is, Searchlight’s, that is, Hope Note Hate’s campaign against the EDL. So that probably means that the Daily Mirror also finances Hope Not Hate.]
Northumbria Police, via the Police Authority, also funds a far-left campaign group called the Tyne & Wear Anti-Fascist Association (TWAFA) which monitors nationalist activists and political dissidents in the North East of England. TWAFA has worked closely with SWP/UAF members in the past. TWAFA is also closely linked to the Searchlight/Hope Not Hate organisation which itself works closely with Labour MPs such as the Tyneside Labour MP David Miliband who backed a recent survey from Searchlight which suggested nationalist feeling was growing across the country. [Are there many – or any! – organisations ‘which monitor’ the actions of far-left groups like the SWP and, well, Searchlight/Hope Not Hate? Yes; the EDL! But that's all!
Isn’t this strange? The Northumbrian Police Authority is using extreme left organisations to monitor ‘far right’ groups. Then again, New Labour used extremist Muslim and Islamist groups to tackle, well, extremist Muslim and Islamist groups! And repeatedly did so even when it was shown that such ‘monitors’ were often as bad as the scum they were monitoring.
