Revealed At Last, The Criminals of the English Defence League

Last week a list of EDL supporters, along with their criminal convictions, appeared on the Internet. Since then, either Marmite can’t see what’s under his nose, or the list has disappeared. Whatever. We reproduce it here, albeit in a rather more digestible form, and for the delectation of home buyers everywhere. Well, bearing in mind that the list contains numerous convictions for drunkenness and violence, as well as the odd case of murder, paedophilia, drug dealing, arson, bomb making, possession of prohibited firearms, identity theft, and animal cruelty, I know that I would far rather have your average law abiding Muslim family living next door to me than any of this lot. Anyone fancy a mass deportation of the members of the EDL, SDL, WDL, CXF, NWI, BNP and the rest of the vile far right crew? OK., we at Liveraf totally oppose discrimination even against the  Untermenschen, of the far right but think how much cleaner the air would be.
