The special relationship between the Daily Mail and the English Defence League has been noted on this blog before, and continues today with what the Mail claims are Wikileaks revelations. Martin Robbins has written an excellent post about them regurgitating their own story from 2008, and Five Chinese Crackers has also covered the story here: Remember kids – the Daily Mail is not friends with the EDL.
Predictably, this story has been greeted with ghoulish glee on EDL facebook pages, although they are posting the churnalised version from the Sify news website. These particular threads have moved on somewhat since the screenshots were taken, but you can see them here, and here.
The comments from the Mail article are also very interesting. In amongst the usual “send them home” stuff, there are several like these:
This is one reason I will be voting BNP in the bye election next month.Con/Lib/Lab will do nothing until it is to late, just like most votersA perfect reason to vote BNP.
Are we surprised? No not at all……it’s what the EDL and BNP have been saying for some time now.
More and more it is coming to look as if only the BNP might save Britain.
Yes DM and when groups like the BNP and EDL stand up against this you lot are quick to scream fascist, racist, scum etc. You call them right wing extremists, well they aren’t they’re just right.Stop the double standards DM and let us all know which side of the fence you really sit on.
