Alan Lake: “I have given some money to help some EDL things happen”

Norwegian television news show TV 2 Nyhetene has a report on Alan Lake, the British businessman connected with the English Defence League. For the first time, Lake admits to financing the organisation:

I mean, I have given some money to help some EDL things happen.

Lake describes Islamists who make provocative and inflammatory protests in the UK as “seditious” and tells us that he would be “happy to execute people like that”. He adds that “I suspect its going to take the loss of a few countries” in Europe “to actually wake other people up”.

There’s also input from Nachum Shifren, the Californian “Surfing Rabbi”:

Alan has had a very decisive role in working with me and people in the United States.

I blogged on Shrifen’s association with the EDL here and here, noting his anti-gay views; my posts drew critical comment from Lake himself.

Lake is of interest to Norwegian television because of his links to Kent Ekeroth, the Swedish nationalist politician; Lake describes him as a “good friend”. Lake also says that he wishes to return to Sweden to give another talk “now that I’ve moved on to the next level.”

  1. Lake describes Islamists who make provocative and inflammatory protests in the UK as “seditious” and tells us that he would be “happy to execute people like that”. He adds that “I suspect its going to take the loss of a few countries” in Europe “to actually wake other people up”.

    Talking sense.

    Marine LePen is set to become the president of France because France’s leftists for years ignored islamist encroachments and provocations.

    The rest of the country’s political establishment is now falling over itslef in an effort to bulk up its “Far Right” credentials.

    France’s mainstream political groupings and the country’s mainstream pols have lost control of the house.

    And with a growing influx of North African ‘refugees’ into Italy France has even reneged on the schengen Accords with that country. France has re-established its border with Italy.

    I blame Terry Jones!
