Welsh Defence League links with neo-Nazis are unmasked - BBC
No surprises here:
An undercover investigation by BBC Wales into a group campaigning against Muslim extremists has found links with neo-Nazi supporters.
Secretly-filmed footage in Monday’s Week In Week Out programme also exposes criminal activity among some Welsh Defence League (WDL) supporters.
Publicly, the WDL says it is a non-racist organisation.
A judge who has examined the evidence in the programme said some were acting to “inflame racial hatred”.
The WDL - aligned to the English Defence League - was set up last year by an ex-soccer hooligan and author Jeff Marsh in response to Muslim extremists abusing troops returning from Afghanistan.
Now that they have been comprehensively busted as racists, they have disbanded and are setting up new groups:
Jeff Marsh, who uses a variety of aliases and wears a balaclava to broadcast online, says he has disbanded the WDL because of the racist element.
He has set up another organisation against Muslim extremists called The Welsh Casuals.
He insisted that the group is non-racist.
Another group calling itself the Cymru Defence League has emerged out of the WDL.
As in countless other cases where racist organisations have been exposed, we can expect the names to change but not the membership or the agenda.
