    Far-Right Extremists Chased Through London by Women Dressed as Badgers

    By Timur Moon: Subscribe to Timur's RSS feed | June 1, 2013 4:58 PM GMT

    A rally by extremists from the British National Party and the English Defence League was dwarfed by opposition campaigners staging rival protests in London on Saturday 1 June.

    Shortly after lunch, a die-hard core of around 50 BNP and EDL supporters was confronted outside parliament by hundreds of activists from anti-extremist groups including Unite Against Fascsim and Hope Not Hate.
    But in the event, both groups were upstaged by agitators of a different stripe. Decked out from head to toe in black and white, the group that won the day were campaigning neither for race war nor ethnic equality, but an end to the government's cull on badgers.

    And it was the pro-badger campaigners who appeared to steal a march on the political activists.
    Young women dressed in fake fur were seen chasing doughty nationalist supporters down London's Whitehall as a large number of security forces in iridescent jackets looked on from police lines.

    Led by Queen guitarist Brian May, protesters in fancy dress demanded an end to the government's cull of badgers, brought in to stop the spread of bovine tuberculosis.

    They chanted: "Smash the cull! Smash the BNP!"

    BNP candidate Clifford Le May was left with a bloody nose after being caught up in a rival enclave of human rights activists.

    The BNP's leader, Nick Griffin, had earlier backed down on his threat to defy a police ban and march on Woolwich after the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby. Rigby's family had issued a statement appealing for calm.

    Police invoked powers under the Public Order Act to force demonstrators to move back from Old Palace Yard, demanding activists from all sides return to their pre-arranged areas.

    At least 58 anti-extremist campaigners were arrested during the course of the afternoon, most of them for obstructing the path of the BNP and EDL, who had been granted permission to march by the police.

    "It's a shame we can't just cull the EDL and let the badgers march. Who wouldn't want to see marching badgers!" said protester Ian Power on Twitter.

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    My body is not a temple, It's the hell where I reside.
    That's the badger.
    Dunno about culling them.
    Might nail a couple though.

    Looked at lots of pics from this event a couple days ago. Gave me an insight into the "farang women are all fat and ugly" crowd... they're talking about the farang women who they could reasonably expect to have non-monetised relations with. Which would obviously not include these young sexy lefty feminist types.

    Just one of the many advantages of a life spent on the right side of the political divide I guess.

    Them badgers is hot and ought not to be culled!
