EDL BRITISH WEB NAZIS SENT DOWN
Interesting that these people were involved in the English Defence League, which claims to reject racism, Libcom takes up the story.
The massed ranks of the Aryan Strike Force (ASF) and the British Freedom Force (BFF) have suffered a body blow as ‘Wigan’ Mike Heaton and Trevor ‘Fist’ Hannington have been sent down for racist comments posted on the internet.
At Liverpool Crown today Michael Heaton was sentenced to 30 months and Trevor Hannington to 2 years. They were cleared of soliciting murder but were convicted of using threatening, abusive or insulting words likely to stir up racial hatred. It was no real surprise but what is interesting is if any further charges are pressed over similar Nazi websites. Certainly, when Heaton and Hannington were first arrested several posters on the various Nazi forums started quailing: “If they can get Mike for what he has said on the net then they can get all or the majority of us I would wager.” Heaton and Hannington have a long history of far-right activity and have been filmed on EDL demos. The EDL website claims that although Heaton was on the earlier demos and the forum he has since been booted off. So we can safely assume Heaton is not going to be seen on any of their demo’s for a while. Unless they start a Prison Division.
