Britain First are great for laughs. That's really all they are for. It's sad they get that amount of support but I'm sure much of their support is harmless. In a way they're a good thing because they've usurped the EDL as the latest far-right street thing but have been so inert and clueless that all the harm these people can cause has been dampened a bit. It's a shame they banned me from their page as it was always good fun to see what they were up to.

The Exposing Britain First list of their "fails" is a great larf.

-Kicked out of multiple venues. Police called twice.
-Mobile app removed for racial hatred
-Chucked off YouTube for copyright violation
-Royal Mail deemed their leaflets illegal and refused to deliver them
-Accidentally filled their forms incorrectly for the R&S by-election, ended up being named 'Vote British!' instead of 'Britain First', and tried to claim it was a leftist plot against them
-Earned 56 votes at that election, claimed they meant to get nothing to help UKIP - and that 'Vote British!' was all part of the plan - in an amazing leap of fucknuckle logic that still escapes me
-ASA ruled against their use of the crown
-ASA ruled against 'Best of British' slogan.
-Lee Rigby's family have condemned them for continued use of his image and name in propaganda
-The RBL have condemned them for their profiteering on the poppy.
-Multiple animal charities have condemned them for cynical, borderline fraudulent use of images of abused animals
-Multiple representatives of the military and specific regiments of such have condemned BF's use of their images and requested they desist and remove images from social media, to no avail.
-Earned widespread condemnation and a police investigation for threatening an old man with criminal damage in a place of worship.
-Earned a conviction for harrassment and wearing political uniforms. Claimed it was for 'exposing terrorists'.
-Actually harrassed an innocent woman
-Earned bad press and widespread condemnation for doctoring multiple images of a number of people including a veteran and civil rights activist.
-Earned scorn and derision for being the type of cowardly keyboard warriors that doxx personal details and incite bullying and violence online
-UKIP members unwittingly posed for photos with them, distanced themselves from them, BF insist they don't mean it and they're bestest buds really
-Nick Robinson, political correspondent for the BBC, unwittingly posed for photo with them, immediately distanced himself from them upon learning who they are.
-Craig Revel Horwood off of that there dancing programme unwittingly posed for photo with them, immediately distanced himself from them upon learning who they are.
-Channel 4 News produced a comical report into them which, amongst other priceless moments, caught them destroying a car park barrier
-Jim Dowson dumped them, calling them racists and idiots in The Mirror
-BF claimed the Mirror was lying
-Jim Dowson released a video dumping them, BF said nothing.
-Soon after, BF was peddling the wares of the bloke under another name like the good little dogsbodies they are
-In a blind rage at bad press, they repeatedly announced a boycott of the Daily Mail, only to share a Daily Mail article a few hours later, once they calmed down and realised the DM is their best source of propaganda. Boycott quickly forgotten.
-Long standing boycott of the Sun for Hillsborough unceremoniously dumped when the editor responsible for the Hillsborough smear campaign wrote a juicy article they wanted to use.
-Dozens upon dozens of unhappy customers never received goods paid for
-Blamed the Royal Mail
-Blamed moving office, twice (when they were kicked out, twice)
-Blamed SO15 (whilst allegedly under investigation on terrorism suspicions, claims SO15 "took their printer so they can't print receipts")
-Promised 'no more fundraisers' in the New Year whilst fundraising for Paul's 'legal battle'- charges to which he pleaded guilty because never surrender and all that bollocks - started the New Year with a fundraiser for leaflets, closely followed by a fundraiser for increased security on their houses, closely followed by a fundraiser for the General Election.
-Fundraised for the GE. Failed to field a single candidate.
-Claimed police are corrupt and persecuting them
-hid behind police on Brick Lane
-hid behind police at Rotherham
-hid behind police at Rochester
-hid behind police at UN Anti-Racism day
-Golding claimed to be hiding under police protection after receiving a 'threat' on Christmas day
-Claimed corrupt police wouldn't arrest Anjem Choudary
-Claimed credit when police arrested Anjem Choudary
-Claimed the word 'racist' doesn't exist, is made up
-Have called police, a cinema, UAF, Leftwingers, Muslims, a housing association, newspapers and Anti-BF groups racist
-unsuccessfully boycotted a local paper
-unsuccessfully boycotted three national newspapers. Twice.
-unsuccessfully boycotted a shopping centre
-unsuccessfully boycotted 'halal'
-17 attendees to Brittania Ball
-Second go at Britannia Ball abandoned, quietly brushed under carpet.
-Held a 'Conference' to debate core policies. ~20 people turned up, got drunk and nodded dumbly at everything.
-Produced the most childishly non-sensical list of policies this side of a primary school class rep election.
-After being arrested for assault, Golding definitively claims he DID NOT assault the man
-Releases video the very next day depicting immediately after the incident, in which he clearly states he DID assault the man.
-Steve Chriscole holds 'Christian Patrol' in 'Muslim occupied area'. Ends up wandering around in the dark creeping out the locals, sees nobody and looks very silly. Posts video anyway.
-Launched America First
-Offended Americans.
-Deleted America First
-Launched BF Christians
-Offended everybody
-Deleted BF Christians
-Chased out of Hexthorpe by children
-Lost their banner
-Lost Rowlands, McBride, Dowson, Cooper, various activists and RCOs, and haemorrhaged disgruntled members publicly.
-Announced Armed Forces Officer
-Lost Armed Forces Officer upon the rapid discovery that he was a fraud
-Pretends Armed Forces Officer never existed
-Promoted convicted paedophile to RCO
-Bought lots of flags, forgot to check which way up they go
-Launched a roadshow for make glorious membership drive of wonderful Britain First. Hundreds of new members expected
-Averaged attendance figures of about a five-a-side team.
-Ordered a taxi for attendees at Newcastle leg of roadshow. Literally, taxi, singular.
-'postponed' last two legs of Roadshow. They're still waiting. Maybe those hundreds of new members are all there.
-Probably not.
-Started Twitter flame war with that Sean off of Coronation Street
-Lost Twitter flame war with that Sean off of Coronation Street
-took it to Facebook for back up
-Sean off of Coronation Street didn't give the slightest toss.
-Launched Knights Templar International
-Claimed it definitely isn't them
-Simultaneously sent an email to their entire mailing list saying it is them really, nudge nudge, wink wink.
-Claimed it definitely isn't them again. Honest.
-It blatantly is though.

Perhaps after the election Armando Ianucci will announce it was all just a brilliant, brilliant parody.

I genuinely don't know what Britain First is for? What do they do? Just spout racist shit in a Facebook group? They're not actually a political party or even a pressure group from what I can tell.

I'd say they're a combination of ex BNP members, EDL types. I'd say they're a street movement, like the EDL, except the EDL don't go inside mosques. It seems much of their campaign section on their site is given over to campaigning against Mosques being built. Strange given they spend so much time in them.

Just had a look at the donations page on their website (just out of curiosity, honest) . It gives the postal address and says 'Do not put Britain First on the envelope' :D

If you're willing to part with £50 you will become a Platinum member. Such members are 'Elite of Britain First Member', who apparently 'go the extra mile'

They offer a lifetime membership at £120. It says 'Ensures continuous membership for the duration of your life. I reckon it should add 'or until the demise of Britain First, whichever comes first'.

The apparel sold in their shop is a bit mundane. I was expecting T shirts with slogans such as 'Muslims are wank' or 'Allah is Shit', only to discover bland shirts etc with their logo on.

They sell an after shave called Lionheart No9 Old school aftershave which retails at £21.95. Guaranteed to simultaneously attract female patriots and repel Muslims.

Their keyrings were interesting. I especially liked the 'I'm voting UKIP' and 'Taliban Hunting Club' ones.

Incredible that people actually live their lives like that with so much hate and ignorance, I pity them.

Love it, especially this bit. I imagine it'd be all put down to a "lefty conspiracy" in postmen or the suchlike. Any ridiculous failing tends to be a lefty conspiracy after all.

Well, they actively support UKIP, despite UKIP's claims that they don't want that support.

That's not UKIPs fault, but it tells its own story.

They had a "big" protest the other day, 40 people turned up. There were a load of ex-armed forces there to give them white feathers and tell them to fuck off.
