And just to show the true face of Goddard -


Ukip and the hatemonger: Far-Right mob leader who hurled 'Nazi' slurs at Anna Soubry posed for a photo with party leader Gerard Batten at a 'Free Tommy Robinson' rally last year
James Goddard, 29, intimidated Soubry during a pro-Brexit protest on Monday
The handyman from Leicester has previously called Sadiq Khan an 'Islamist'
He is one of a growing number of extremists who have become close to Ukip

Ugly racism of crank who wants to be new Tommy Robinson
By Guy Adams and Glen Keogh

James Goddard has never even bothered to conceal the ugly strand of racism that underpins his warped political agenda. The 29-year-old handyman’s lucrative second career as a far-Right activist kicked off in October 2017, when he posted a sort of personal manifesto on a virulently xenophobic website called Proactive Patriots.

‘I’m just a normal working-class lad from Leicester that is sick to the back teeth of mass Muslim immigration,’ it began, claiming that ‘unless the UK government acts to counter the threat of Islam then the UK will become an Islamic state in the next 50-75 years’.

Goddard then endorsed a sinister range of neo-Nazi policy proposals, including ‘complete bans’ on ‘halal meat’, ‘Muslim immigration’, the building of mosques, and ‘all literature on Mohammed in public buildings’.

He also declared that the families of all terror suspects ought to be deported – presumably without trial – in order to prevent Britain becoming a caliphate.

Quite how these extreme and somewhat paranoid views make him a remotely suitable person for Ukip’s leader Gerard Batten to be pictured with is anyone’s guess.

But, as we now know, that’s exactly what happened last summer, when the duo posed together at a protest on behalf of Goddard’s political hero Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, the far-Right rabble-rouser better known as Tommy Robinson, though Batten denies knowing Goddard.

By then, the previously unknown Goddard’s star was firmly on the rise, thanks to a series of cranky videos he’d begun posting on social media on a daily basis. Many depicted his highly provocative behaviour at a range of far-Right protests held in towns and cities across England, Wales and Scotland.

Some saw him attack Islam, calling it ‘a political ideology that advocates your death’ and claiming Muslims were ‘raping our children and killing innocent people’. He described the Prophet Muhammad as ‘a bloodthirsty, murdering, racist paedophile’.

Other videos focused on opponents of Brexit, who he dubbed ‘treacherous scumbags’, ‘pricks’ and ‘leftarded trolls’. Left-leaning lobby groups such as Stand Up To Racism were branded as ‘anglophobic… atheist and leftist scumbags hellbent on enforcing communism on us’.

In June he filmed himself abusing pro-Palestinian marchers in central London and took part in pro-Brexit ‘freedom marches’. In July he attended demonstrations in support of Robinson, who had been jailed for contempt of court after breaking reporting restrictions surrounding the trial of an Asian grooming gang.

In August he spoke out against London’s ‘Islamist’ mayor Sadiq Khan, and a month later organised a protest in Trafalgar Square under the slogan ‘Ban the Burka’.

‘If I can ask you to all come dressed in a burka or niqab, I feel this will send a message to our political class,’ announced Goddard, adding: ‘I must say, trying to drink a pint [in one] isn’t practical or pretty.’

The audience for this brand of bile is relatively tiny – his YouTube films racked up a few thousand views each, on average, while his Twitter feed had a mere 3,200 followers. But the devotion of some of his supporters means that it can also be extremely lucrative. Goddard began encouraging fans of his work to donate to him via a Paypal account, claiming their generosity would ‘help me fight for the cause’ and continue ‘challenging the corrupt Establishment’.

A similar pitch allowed Robinson to generate hundreds of thousands of pounds from supporters on both sides of the Atlantic. He has built up an impressive collection of luxury cars, watches, and designer clothes in the process.

Will there be enough Labour MP's to vote for the tweaked Brexit deal to topple Corbyn?

"The government is considering giving extra protections to workers and the environment in order to win support for its Brexit withdrawal agreement.
The proposals have been put forward by Labour Leave supporter John Mann.
Business Secretary Greg Clark said the amendment showed "Parliament coming together" behind the PM's deal."

Don't be silly.

Just about every Labvour MP knows the importance of a General Election. As party policy, it overrides all other possibilities, because without a Labour government nothing can be done.

Of course I was just being silly.
Another General Election would be the answer.

Good to see that as usual you are simply tilting at windmills, and have recognised your filly.

Corbyn's personal popularity and that of the Labour party in moment-in-time straw polls doesn't concern me or them. We saw what happened at the last election - and we have seen what the disgraceful but failed personal smear campaign financed by the Tories didn't manage. Put Corbyn up against May, he will rip her a new one. So much ammunition. Then there's the ground force, knocking on doors, leafleting, making a case. How many Tory activists are there these days?

Incumbents are always unpopular, have been in a coma for fifty years?
It’s how we’ve ended up with useless prime ministers.
People tend to hate sitting governments but many have a rethink when General Elections come round.
Those that think Corbyn is an idiot will vote according to their conscience.

Not forgetting of course free tertiary tuition fees
Free bus travel for under 25's - paid for by giving more potholes to all
Pay rises for all
£billions more in government debt

And John McDonnell's pledge to crash the £ so we won't be able to afford to trade with anyone anyhow.

Pay rises for all (Complete lie, Tory desperation)

And John McDonnell's pledge to crash the £ so we won't be able to afford to trade with anyone anyhow. (Not only a complete lie, but also inaccurate - cheaper £= more exports)


Can't wait, especially for the absolute fairytale bollox from the likes of Semen Staines that you seem to lap up to be demolished in an election campaign. An election campaign much of which will be conducted online. Not great for Tories either, most of whom still reside in the 1940s.

A tech developer with a successful London e-learning company has said he has already quit Britain after 10 high-flying years because of the uncertainty and “mindless tribalism” caused by Brexit.

Jan, an IT specialist from the former Yugoslavia, has set up a new business in Switzerland where he says the approach could not be more welcoming.

He said the drop in the value of the pound “killed” his business because the cost of paying subcontractors in places such as Romania and India has shot up, destroying his margin.

He also felt unwanted after the referendum and with a heavy heart he and his wife decided they didn’t “want to be trapped on an island that is descending into mindless tribalism” after 10 successful years here.

His story reflects the struggles of many small to medium-sized businesses hit by the collapse of the pound after the referendum and its continuing weakness today.

He says Switzerland’s welcoming approach to business is in stark contrast to the UK’s since the referendum. About 25% of the population are foreign and all new immigrants are invited to a lounge party with the town’s mayor with free food and wine and a free city tour to help them get to know their new home.

“If immigration was the problem, Switzerland would be the poorest country on the planet,” he said. “Accountants tell me I am not the only one who has quit Britain and that they are swamped with small UK businesses setting up shop in Switzerland. The country is not in the EU but it couldn’t be more different than Britain post-2016.


'Bye Jan, and 'bye to all those other businesses. The tip of a huge iceberg, I fear, typified by comments to Treeza today by the Japanese PM.

He's not the only one:

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has confirmed it is cutting 4,500 jobs, with the substantial majority coming from its 40,000 strong UK workforce.

Most will be in office roles as the company wants to simplify its management structure. The cuts come on top of last year's 1,500 job losses.

JLR is facing several challenges, including a slump in demand for diesel cars and a sales slowdown in China.

The firm has also complained about uncertainty caused by Brexit.

Meanwhile, five days ago:

Iain Duncan Smith has said not a single job would be lost in a hard Brexit, insisting concerns fears of leaving with no deal are "nonsense".

Speaking to Matt Stadlen, the former work and pensions secretary and Conservative leader said: "I believe not a single job will be lost, I think this is all complete nonsense".

Honda is shutting down it's UK operations at the beginning of April in order to review the post leave situation.

In another timeline, this would be satire.

Come on Stooo - chin up.

In a few weeks (years? decades?) we will be selling cheap tat to China, made by people on slavery wages with no employment protections whatsoever.

What a 180 degree turnaround from a few years ago, when Made in China meant cheap tat made by people on slavery wages with no employment protections whatsoever.
