Northern Ireland suffered through decades of violence and terror. And as such, the people there have seen a lot. But even the years of that couldn’t have prepared them for a man holding not one but two thumbs down:
The cock of England
If you’re unfamiliar with Paul Golding, he’s the sometimes leader of Britain First. Britain First being an alleged political organisation that built up a significant following on Facebook through a series of cons, and yet has pretty much no actual presence whatsoever.
Golding himself is most famous for failing to become the mayor of London, failing to understand satire, and generally just failing to be taken seriously. Other than Her Majesty’s Prison Service of course, who held Paul for a period in 2016/2017. Which was when he told journalists, politicians, and the left:
every lie, every act of treachery will be revisited on you ten fold.
I can promise you, from the very depths of my being, you will all meet your miserable ends at the hands of the Britain First movement. Every last one of you

While others pointed out Golding’s previous ‘glories’:
And one person even made it look like Golding didn’t like Carpet Right. Which is obviously nonsense – it’s the Carpet Left that Golding opposes:
It’s not really helpful for people on the UK mainland to support one faction over another in Northern Ireland. It’s an incredibly complex situation that goes back decades, and the only side you should be on is the side of peace.
At the end of the day though, if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that Paul Golding is absolutely useless.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
