Today, Britain First leader Paul Golding had to appear in Derby court to plead "not guilty" to a charge of "using insulting words in public" contrary to the Public Order Act 1986.
This arises out of an incident several months when Paul was punched in Derby by an Islamic extremist.
Unbelievably, in the event of a successful conviction, the Crown Prosecution Service will apply for a "Criminal Control Order" to outlaw any chance of Paul being able to carry on with his political activities.

Here are the terms of the Control Order that the CPS is seeking, with our replies under each point:

"The defendant must not:"

"1. Act or incite others to act in an anti-social manner, that is to say, a manner that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons."

So, for example, if Paul asks some activists to leaflet a certain road on a housing estate, and a single person is "distressed" by our policies, then he will be arrested and thrown in prison.

"2. Enter any Mosque or Islamic Cultural Centre without prior consultation."

Britain First hasn't done anything like this in over a year.

"3. Hold any demonstration or Political/Religious Rally within 500 Meters of a Mosque."

So if a mosque invites hate preacher Anjem Choudary to speak to its gatherings, Paul is not allowed to protest against it.

"4. Uploaded any video to Social Media depicting unsolicited approaches to members of the public to engage in Political/Religious discussion."

Imagine if David Cameron was barred from approaching members of the public to hand them a leaflet or to discuss Conservative policies?

"5. Use a loudhailer at any Political or Religiously motivated demonstration or rally."

Political activists / politicians use microphones, PA systems or loudhailers every day at demos, protests, rallies or meetings.
How can a political leader be banned from using a megaphone?
This Control Order, if they achieve it, will apply for five years and will virtually make it impossible for Paul Golding to lead Britain First - which is the Home Office plan in any case.
None of the terms of this proposed Control Order relate to his current prosecution or any previous convictions.
We live in a country where, for example, Anjem Choudary can walk the streets with no conditions, radicalise over 90 terrorists, and not get hassled by the state.
On the other hand, a political party leader is badgered and harassed using taxpayers' money simply because he exposes militant Islam and the government's policy of appeasement.
Amazingly, the prosecution is relying exclusively on witness statements from two police officers that were at least 25 feet away from the alledged incident - you couldn't make it up.
David Cameron or any future Prime Minister has lost the right to strut the world stage condemning "tyrannies" such as North Korea - political persecution is happening right here in the UK.
We will provide more updates shortly but rest assured, Paul and Britain First will be fighting this persecution tooth and nail with no prospect of surrender.
Yours sincerely,
Jayda Fransen
Deputy Leader

With thanks to J.T.
