Ex-Britain First leader Paul Golding jailed over mosque ban

"The former leader of Britain First has been jailed for breaching a court order telling him not to enter a mosque or encourage others to do so.

Paul Golding, who has stepped down as head of the group, admitted contempt of court and was jailed for eight weeks.

The injunction, which stopped him entering any mosque in England and Wales, was imposed in August.

But nine days later he drove four Britain First members to Cardiff's Al-Manar Centre for a "mosque invasion"."

Web of hate

"On the rightwing website Redwatch, hundreds of photographs of anti-war and anti-fascist activists are posted - with the message that they will 'pay for their crimes'. And now a number of those people have been attacked. So why hasn't the site been closed down?"

The Faces Behind Redwatch

Should journalists, bloggers and activists be held responsible for what others do with the facts they make public?

"Freedom of speech, when you agree with the speech in question, is an easy, black-and-white issue. Redwatch, however, is more of a grey area. Variously described as a far-right site (the BBC) or Nazi hate site, (Angela Eagle MP), it is a deeply unpleasant place, which sets its aggressive tone instantly with a crosshairs cursor and a banner ad for its sub-site, "Noncewatch". The ad consists of a single word, in blood red, complete with dangling nooses.

Redwatch is unquestionably the work of far-right, even fascistic individuals who seem to have very little regard for either the arguments of their political opponents or those individuals themselves."
