Over the course of the last eight hours or so, EDL joint leader Kevin Carroll has been up in arms on Twitter about an apparent rape case involving a young girl at one of Luton’s schools. Despite never providing a source, news went somewhat viral on social networking sites, with far-right cronies, as usual, crying about Muslims “getting anyway with everything.”
Unsurprisingly, it turns out Kev Carroll has been lying, as Hope Not Hate covered in a recent article.
When myself and others took to Twitter to ask Kev why he would lie about such a thing, he went all quiet, and thought it was in his best interest to block tweets he just didn’t have the balls to answer to.
(And there’s me thinking the fascist EDL really stood for freedom of speech)
