Hope Not Hate: EDL Company Compulsorily Dissolved

Yesterday I put up a piece reporting that the National Front was in such a poor state, that some of its members were demanding that it should be wound up altogether. Hope Not Hate yesterday reported that the English Defence League was in similar dire straits. English Footsoldier EDL Limited, formerly English Defence League Limited, run by the League’s fomer accountant, Gary Head, and Dave Bolton, have been finally wound up by the authorities at Companies House after they failed to submit all the documents required of businesses under the law. Head and Bolton have previous when it comes to bankrupt companies. The two were directors of The Real EDL Limited, now defunct, while head was also a director of another dissolved company, Burbush Ltd, which was a construction firm. Apparently the pair have also fallen out over drugs and addresses, which is recurring pattern in the extreme Right. There are always problems with factions fighting over drug dealing, and trying to steal each other’s address books.

The story can be read at: http://www.hopenothate.org.uk/blog/insider/edl-really-gets-wound-up-5009

This includes not only a piccie of the document telling Head and Bolton that their company is no more, it also has a very odd photo of Bolton with his head inside a clock case, gurning. No, I’ve no idea either. I was also struck by how much he looks like Al Murray as the Pub Landlord, with the obvious difference that Murray is actually funny, and takes the mick out of people like the EDL.

The EDL claims to be protecting ordinary Brits, of all races and religions, from the threat of Islam. In fact, they seem to be the usual Fascist goons, using the threat of radical Islam to find someone else to hate, vilify and attack. Like the NF, they won’t be missed either.

    I hope it is the case but I was in a webinar a couple of days ago with Matthew Feldman on Radicalisation and the Far Right and he showed a clip of how the EDL is mustering it’s cause in the North East and are advertising a demo for the 24th Sept, here’s the terrible video from them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zcopsvjf1lA which should be seen in the context of this webinar discussion on Radicalisation and the Far Right: https://app.webinarjam.net/replay/20480/5ba5ba8452/0/52910958

      Thanks for this, Michelle. I have to say, I couldn’t tell from the Hope Not Hate article whether it was simply a part of the EDL that was dissolved. I have a feeling it might simply have been this clown’s attempt at running a merchandising branch.
