The goosesteppers are hosting a "family fun day" in Southend on November 4th. Any takers?

People were curious about how Tommy's mates could set up an actual stage outside Old Bailey. City police piped up to say the local authority would have dealt with the application.

That'll have been paid for by the big money coming in from across the pond.

"The council made us do it!"

From that platform Tommy said:

"To you the British press. You are the enemy of the people."

I can't remember - have we had this?

A former assistant to Robinson, who had access to his Stripe online payment processing account, claimed it contained £2m after his jailing and appeal, thanks to a flood of donations, mostly small amounts. Another former assistant, Lucy Brown, told The Sunday Times in August that Robinson operated a “business” in which “your outrage, valid as it is, will be monetised as such”.

Robinson recently moved into a £950,000 house in an upmarket village in Bedfordshire. The detached, gated property has four bedrooms, a two- bedroom annexe and a double garage.

Caveat - it's a Gilligan article and so could be utter shite.

The info probably came from Hel Gower , who Tommeh sacked a couple of months ago and is likely in need of some income.

Lady Goosestep has realised that it might be an idea to pretend to be a proper political party, rather than a one-woman band:

It's nice that they didn't dox him, unlike EDL/DFLA tactics.

So what was wrong with:

The Gammons; an everyday story of right-wing folk?

The "Calling people gammon is racist!" thing has been debunked:
