March for England threaten to return unless 'hired killers' councillor resigns

The Argus: March for England threaten to return unless 'hired hillers' councillor resigns March for England threaten to return unless 'hired hillers' councillor resigns

March for England is threatening to return to Brighton and Hove’s streets this summer unless a councillor who branded soldiers “hired killers” resigns.

The nationalist group made the threat after Councillor Ben Duncan, a Green Party member who represents Queen’s Park, sparked outrage when he tweeted: “Armed Forces Day has certainly brought the hired killers on to the streets of #Brighton today. Hard to explain to my son.”

The right-wing March for England (MfE) parade brings Brighton and Hove to a standstill the Sunday after St George’s Day each year and costs the police hundreds of thousands of pounds.

MfE bosses are demanding that Ben Duncan apologises “properly”, resigns and donates £1,000 to a forces charity.

A spokesman for MfE said: “Ben Duncan should resign and him or the Green Party donate £1,000 to a forces charity to make up for the grief his stupid comment has caused to the families of the fallen and our serving and ex-forces.

“The Greens constantly complain about the cost of our parade in Brighton so simply resign, apologise and make a donation to a forces charity and this will be an end to it.

“People are fuming over this statement from him.”

A post on a blog, confirmed to be accurate by the MfE spokesman, said demonstrators will return to Brighton “sometime in August” and the administrator of their Facebook page posted “you might just see us before April” next year.

A council spokesman said: “Organisers of demonstrations are not required to seek permission from the council or police.

“However we do advise organisers to liaise with the council, police and emergency services.

“In the past March for England have done this.”

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said: “Organisers of demonstrations are not required to seek permission from the council or police but do need to give the police a minimum of six days’ notice of an intention to process.

“We do, however, advise them to notify and liaise with the council and police at the earliest opportunity to discuss their intentions.”

A spokesman for the Brighton and Hove Green Party said they were aware of the threat. Coun Duncan is currently undergoing disciplinary proceedings from his own party over the tweet, the latest in a series of controversial statements he has made. He has now closed his Twitter account.

Oh this is just fantastic, one stupid tweet and it's going to result in the city being shut down AGAIN, draining even more money (£750K last time I think), of course if the MfE come back it means the UAF come back too.
This is not about his right to free speech, it's about a public figure and representative that should of just kept his opinion to himself, he freely admits he knew it would cause an uproar and has stoked it by giving a half arsed apology and then mocking it by re-tweeting, anyone with a brain would of just apologised and left it at that.
If he is allowed to continue as councillor and not disciplined I predict a total riot outside the town hall.

It looks like Brighton is the focus point for all kinds of grown adults with anger management issues; the visceral posts on this Argus website over the past few days seem to be just one aspect. GROW UP EVERYBODY. You're just costing the rest of us hard-earned money.

Thank you for your belated interest. While Brighton and Hove is essentially run by council officers (which I'm not completely happy with), at least it has a vibrant and colourful city and parliamentary democracy, which it seems many Argus readers need, as a means of getting a few things off their chest.

Adur, by contrast, is so close, yet so different. If you were to live there for a bit and have issues with the way that things are run, the insidious differences that go with living in an area that is too safe for one party might creep in under your skin.

Tim Loughton has made a habit in the recent past of responding to concerns raised by his constituents with personal abuse (a bit stronger than Ben Duncan's habitual sneering by some accounts). Either that, or you may even be lucky enough to receive a personal phone call from Tim Loughton himself that explains his warped logic, that leaves you baffled and confused. There have also been a few strange stories in the press about the way that Tim Loughton has interacted with work colleagues that are identical to the way in which Ben Duncan has been using Twitter.

As for Adur's councillors, I might as well stretch a point that is a bit of an open secret where councils are so safe for Tory councillors, that they feign interest in their constituents, and are free to make council decisions that line their own pockets, because there is no effective opposition to challenge them. In somewhere like Brighton and Hove, everybody takes to this website to shout WHAT ON EARTH IS GOING ON? In somewhere like Adur, by contrast, you might notice strange goings on, and feel like you don't know where to go. In Adur, the local press (including The Argus) only ever repeats the things that local councillors have to say, without challenging them in the way that they do in Brighton and Hove.

Like I said, I am a Tory, but because papers like the The Argus are so lazy, proportional representation is badly needed in local government, rather than at Westminster.

which is an identical scenario with which Ben Duncan engages with his electorate. It can further be argued that Tim Loughton is much worse than Ben Duncan, in that Tim Loughton meticulously appeared to create a scenario, in which the former Chief Constable of Sussex appeared forced to resign for reasons that are too obscure (and keep quiet if he values his pension?)

"our civilization and culture"
I'm as British as Stephen Fry walking a corgi outside Buckingham palace but even I know most of our culture comes from the rest of the world, India, China, half of Africa, France etc etc. Even our numbers originate from Islam because it was easier than Roman numerals, so exactly what part of our culture are you referring too, Morris dancing and cheese rolling are hardly attracting extremists!

Unless you have actually read the Koran might I suggest you stop talking out your backside because you'd know that the Bible, Koran and Torah and all as violent yet peaceful contradictions as each other, remember the Christians bombing abortion clinics?

Thank Heaven for freedom of expression, then, even though some would seek to remove it.

I'm not including you in that group, btw.
Yeah like those people who blindly support Israel and insult and smear anyone who dares disagree with them. What was it you called people who protested against the shop in Brighton ? Idiots?
Seems you dont really believe what you say when it comes to Israel.
For some reason jhunty blindly hates Israel, then insults & smears anyone who doesn't agree with his hate.
But jhunty's hate will never hurt .All jhunty is achieving is damaging himself.
He should turn his hate on Syria - 200,000 murdered by Assad to date.

What exactly are the EDL ignorant of?

They campaign against a threat to this country's culture, heritage and well-being.

The threat is being totally ignored by some and wilfully encouraged by others.

There is no such threat.

The MFE have stated they would have a static demonstration if Duncan didn't resign.

I can fully understand why you would feel threatened by the presence of patriots, much as Duncan clearly was the other day.

Oh dear, so proud English people choose to march in their own country (Brighton was in England the last time I looked) and out come the self-loathing nutters - on here and in Brighton - to protest against them. If you have to moan about the cost then blame the anti-English imbeciles who object to English people celebrating themselves and their culture. If people wish to celebrate that culture in Brighton or any other part of England then they can do so, and if the gutless locals don't like it then too bad. As I said, it's the loathsome English-hating cretins who cause the trouble. Would you blame Brighton's gay community if an homophobic mob turned up to give them grief? It doesn't matter where the marchers are from. They're English and this is their country, and if they wish to celebrate their culture in their country then that's that. Don't like it? Too bad.
