Britain First protest cost taxpayers nearly £300000

The Bedfordshire News has reported that the Britain First march that took place in Luton cost nearly £300,000. And the local taxpayer will be having to pay the bill.

The protest was attended by 500 police officers from 15 different forces and the protest had a large impact on businesses.

The Mall shopping centre, which is Luton’s central retail area, recorded a reduction in footfall of approximately 22%, about 16,000 shoppers down, compared to that typically expected for this time of year.

PCC Olly Martins said: “Whilst in the past these costs have eventually been reimbursed, it is anticipated that they will now fall directly upon Bedfordshire taxpayers alone.”

Marches in Luton by the English Defence League, and now Britain First, have cost £3.5m in the last five years.

Britain First, which is continuing to ask for your donations, will probably not want this news to be shared.

Lionheart GB tries to cash in on Tunisia shooting tragedy

Many far-right UK groups have a habit of hijacking tragic events.

Lionheart GB, which has been accused by critics of being tied in with far-right group Britain First, were caught trying to make money through the recent terror attack in Tunisia.

A day after the shooting, they shared an image that offered thoughts for the families and friends of those who were killed. But in the text was a link which directed people straight to the ‘Patriot Store’, an online store which sells t-shirts, badges and other merchandise.

This is the page people are directed to when they click on the link in the post.

A shop. Lionheart GB has exploited the deaths of innocents for financial gain.

Coincidentally, the Knights Templar International group also shared this post with the same text and the same link to the shop.

To all those who don’t know, this is the same group Britain First is promoting on its website and getting people to join. It is believed Britain First run this page too.

Veterans protest against Britain First in Luton

Did you know Britain First was once reported by a veteran who claimed they were involved in a Help for Heroes scam?

Did you know a Navy veteran reported them for defamation? Or what about when the leader once turned up to the Cenotaph with knickers on his head?

When Britain First came to Luton on 27 June, they were not wanted and not even by the veterans who turned up to oppose them.

Below is a photo taken of the veterans who called Britain First leader Paul Golding a ‘coward’ and said Britain First are ‘ripping off military charities, disrespecting veterans and too scared to answer our questions!’

Britain First leader urges young followers to ‘produce’

Not too many Britain First supporters came into Luton on 27 June.

In a video taken of a speech yesterday, Britain First leader Paul Golding was caught urging his younger supporters to produce the ‘next generation’.

Talking of immigrants and Muslims (who Britain First have been accused of scapegoating), Golding said they “have a very high birth rate, whereas our people prefer to go out and get drunk, and to have careers etc etc but we’ve lost that touch…we need to produce the next generation.”

He later said: “I’m looking specifically at the young men here and the young women because you’ve got to get out there and you’ve got to produce the next generation of our people!”

People in the crowd started laughing throughout his speech, in which he used words like ‘our people’ and ‘DNA’.

The video has been uploaded on Vimeo and is titled “White Supremacy speech”. You can watch it here.

Britain First couldn’t even gather 1 per cent of ‘supporters’

Far-right Britain First claimed 2,000 supporters would descend into Luton on 27 June. But according to press and eye-witnesses, no more than 150 supporters turned up. And even that was believed to be an over-estimation by one journalist.

If we calculate this figure as a percentage of the current 776,703 ‘Likes’ on the Facebook page of Britain First, then it’s 0.019%.

This isn’t even 1%.

Let’s face it, Britain First is a poor excuse of a party, and was never wanted in Luton in the first place.

Proof Britain First has little respect for Armed Forces

Far-right group Britain First have already photoshopped a Navy veteran to spread hate and the leader once turned up to the Cenotaph with knickers on his head.

In the latest post, they compared their two leaders appearing in court with D Day.

It is sickening to even compare.

Over 425,000 Allied and German troops were killed, wounded or went missing during the Battle of Normandy.

This figure includes over 209,000 Allied casualties, with nearly 37,000 dead amongst the ground forces and a further 16,714 deaths amongst the Allied air forces.

Britain First offer condolences for some of the dead

The three attacks in France, Tunisia and Kuwait shocked the world yesterday.

And of course, far-right group Britain First attempted to cash in on the news by sharing news links and even a video of deputy leader Jayda Fransen expressing condolences.

Screengrab from Britain First/Facebook.

The caption along with the video mentioned the attacks in Tunisia and France, but absolutely nothing about the attack in Kuwait – when innocent Muslims were killed whilst praying in a mosque. Over 100 people were also injured.

Even in the video no mention was made to Kuwait.

Maybe because Muslims were the victims?

Britain First share bikini ban image to stir hate

Britain First deliberately attempt to stir up hate and get some Likes on their page (as well as other secret pages that belong to them).

On 24 June 2015, they shared an image showing two seemingly Muslim teens holding up a flag that said “Respect Ramadan No Bikinis”.

Britain First wrote in the caption “How about respect the West! Don’t like it, go back to an Islamic country.”

Photo wasn't taken in the West

This image wasn’t even taken in the West. Two teenagers took this photo in the Muslim-majority country of Morocco. And authorities took this poster down soon after.

Moroccan Minister of Tourism Lahcen Haddad was quoted by Moroccan news website Le360 saying: “We cannot allow people on their own to begin to dictate their law. Nobody has the right to set themselves up as guarantors of virtue, and still less to tell tourists how they should dress on a beach.”

Britain First get patches made in Pakistan

Britain First might lose many supporters after they find out that their embroidered badges are actually made by a company in Pakistan.

Someone asked the company whether they make the Britain First patch and someone from the company confirmed “Yes price is GBP 2.00 only”.

From IRBF Hate Page Awareness and Reporting

The company’s website also states it is based in Sialkot, Pakistan.

Coincidentally, the company even promoted itself last year by sharing a photo of Britain First. And deputy leader Jayda Fransen can be seen in the background.

Britain First featured on nonsense website

Far-right hate group Britain First is nonsense, but did you know it has even been featured on a site which highlights nonsense from around the web?, which aims to debunk hoaxes, rumours, as well as Internet and email scams, has featured Britain First at least twice.

In 2014, the site noted how important it was for people to check their sources.

Speaking of Britain First’s Facebook page, it said that the page “posts a consistent stream of hypocrisy, misinformation, urban legends and outright lies.”

It also said that “in the same way as Like-Farming pages exploit social media users to gain followers, Britain First continually post – amongst the hate-filled bigotry and misinformation – a series of wholly irrelevant information that is designed purely to accumulate Likes, Comments and Shares.”

In 2015, the site featured Britain First after they photoshopped an image aimed at inciting racial hatred.

An image showed a Muslim holding a sign that said “Boycott Bigotry and kill all non-Muslims” and was shared over 600 times by Britain First supporters and the gullible.

In reality, the image was of a war veteran who was holding up a sign that said “Boycott Bigotry”. rightly pointed out that “radical groups like Britain First are not a reliable source of truth, which is why it is important on social media that you fact-check your sources before hitting share, if not for any reason than to avoid embarrassment when you find out you’ve shared information with your friends that simply isn’t true.”

Some more nonsense
  1. Britain First share fake quote of Vladimir Putin
  2. Britain First make up fake story to slander Muslim
  3. Britain First shares fake Islamic scholar quote

Britain First affiliate shares fake image again

Just last month we caught Britain First attributing a quote to Russian President Vladimir Putin which he never even said. As shameful as it is, Britain First have yet again recycled the image.

Knights Templar International, which Britain First has close ties to and openly advertises on its website, posted up an image that quoted Vladimir Putin.

No proof of quote ever being said

According to Hoax-Slayer, this is part of a viral hoax that claims in a 2013 speech to the Duma, Putin advised Russian minorities that they should adapt to Russian culture if they wish to live in the country.

However, there is NO RECORD of Putin making such a speech nor are there any credible news reports about Putin’s supposed words.

This is yet again another reason why Britain First cannot be trusted.

Note: This Knights Templar International group, which is associated with Britain First, is not linked to the REAL Knights Templar.

Britain First caught ‘Liking’ dynamiting mosque status

Hate group Britain First says in its Mission Statement: “We will make Britain a beautiful country once again…”

Britain First can sugarcoat itself all it wants, nothing will hide the fact that it is a dangerous group.

In this video, Britain First was caught ‘Liking’ a status left by a supporter suggesting someone, or some people, to ‘dynamite the hell’ out of a mosque.

Britain First leader doesn’t turn up to debate

Far-right group Britain First makes it out to be a force to be reckoned with, when it well and truly isn’t as we have wrote about in this blog.

Picking on the elderly during their 'mosque invasions'.

Yesterday on 12 June, the Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA) held a cross-panel debate entitled, “Does Islam Clash with British values?” where Tommy Robinson (former leader of the English Defence League), Paul Golding (Britain First) and Anne Marie Waters (ShariaWatch) were invited to speak on the panel. 

According to 5Pillars, Golding informed iERA on Thursday evening that “upon further reflection, security considerations and other issues, I have decided to decline the attendance.”

When assured by iERA that three security guards would be allocated to Golding upon entering and exiting the venue, he said “unfortunately it’s a leadership decision” - even though Golding is supposed to be the leader.

Robinson did not turn up to the event, and Waters did turn up to the event but did not participate in the debate.

Event coordinator for iERA, Mohammed Hussain, told 5Pillars that Robinson and Golding were “last resort” after exhausting every other option to get more “mainstream” intellectuals or academics on the panel to discuss Islam and British values.

He also said: “The Quilliam Foundation, the Henry Jackson Society, Sam Westrop from Gatestone Institute, the National Secular Society, British Muslims for Secular Democracy, the British Humanist Association, Melanie Phillips, David Starkey, Yasmin Ali-Bhai Brown, Richard Littlejohn, Andrew Gilligan, David Aaronovitch are just some of the individuals and organisations who iERA personally invited, but were either unavailable, declined to participate or did not reply.”

Britain First associate group shares ISIS propaganda

Not long ago, we discovered how hate group Britain First had shared ISIS propaganda to spread fears about immigration.

Knights Templar International, which Britain First has close ties to, recently posted up an image that said: “ISIS have said they are going to flood Europe with half a million Islamic extremists” before telling supporters to share the image.

Coincidental link to Britain First

A similar quote was also shared in the Britain First newspaper to promote anti-immigration views. The newspaper column said: “ISIS has threatened to flood Europe with half a million migrants from Libya.”

According to the Independent, a researcher said the above propaganda “could not be taken as fact”.

So it seems as though groups like Britain First will do anything to promote themselves, even if it involves sharing propaganda from terrorists.

Note: Britain First are so closely tied to the Knights Templar International they publicly promote them on their website.

Britain First secretly run these Facebook pages

Britain First, as we know, are so desperate to get Likes they will even make up lies. But what many people don’t know, is that Britain First run other Facebook pages too.

Exposing Britain First put together a list of pages Britain First manage. Britain First use these pages with similar content to ‘merge Likes’ giving their main page a boost. It also serves as a purpose to covertly promote Britain First ideology, or advertise the shop.

All these pages (as we have screengrabbed) can be seen sharing links from Britain First and the web of associated pages, as well as the shop.

The pages

Britain First and Lionheart GB have also coincidentally recycled the same posts for click-bait, such as the photo of the starving dog.

They have also used the same images to promote the same merchandise.

  • English and Proud

According to Exposing Britain First, some of these pages have changed their content a little after they were exposed.
