    'Football Lads Alliance'

    http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/sc...tment-11422487

    Apparently targetting Hibs and Hearts fans for recruitment, there's leafleting in opposition to them at this Saturday's game.

    I saw something on BBC news online about them a week or so back. A bunch of shaven headed fat men peddling the same disgusting racist crap as the national front, BNP and English Defence League.

    Not in my name thanks, they should be resisted!

    I hope this is something Hibs fans will want nothing to do with, but having had a look at their Facebook page I see a few Hibs 'Lads' are on it (something a bit odd to me about men in their 50s calling themselves 'football lads', but hey-ho).

    It'll be those fat middle-aged 'lads' who occasionally used to stand in the middle of the Section 43 toilets having a fag before the doors started being opened at the back. I remember once a few years back the SDL were having one of their wee tantrums outside parliament, and all the old Hibs 'lads' suddenly turned up to a game - I assume since the police were otherwise engaged, they weren't at the football to kb the ones with banning orders. Bunch of these jokers stood smoking in the toilet, chatting about the folk they knew who were at the rally.

    Thanks ****** these idiots are a dying breed.

    A good load of them'll be in their mid to late 50s with some very probably Granddads who'd be far better off looking after themselves and their families than getting mixed up with a bunch of neo nazis.

    Dearie me.

    To try and give some balance to the conversation. I have done some research into this group and it is not ias would seem with what has been said. Firstly, their last match in London attracted over 30,000 football fans from teams all across England, all different races and background. No arrests, no BNP banners or Nazi flags etc etc, it was a march against extremists within the U.K.

    Additionally, I see that Dianne Abott has called them right wing and extremist and racist,, which is her go to place for most people she doesn't agree with.

    I'm not saying there isn't an element within the group, it seems that there maybe. But if we are to believe the word of the BBC, Daily Record and Dianne Abbot then we really are drifting to a dark place.

    Not as dark a place as the leaders of this group would like to lead some of us. There are some links to the march you refer to. Unfortunately, a section of the marchers din't quite adhere to the description you provide. Several more links to issues with their rather right wings supporters like Tony Robinson.

    I think you mean Tommy Robinson?

    Tony Robinson played Baldrick and is a member of the Labour Party.

    What could they hope to achieve with a march against extremists? Everyone except the extremists already agree with them and the extremists obviously don't care. More likely they were just looking to stir up trouble.

    I assume the Rangers 'lads' who displayed their banner so proudly on the last march will be extending their condemnation of religious extremism across the board and denouncing the Orange Order immediately.

    If so then fair play to them, about time they took a stand against the bigots within their own support and community.

    I'm personally doubtful about the intentions of some of the people who attach themselves to groups like this and think there's a bit more to it than genuinely trying to make a stand against terrorism. However if you're hated by a racist bigot such as Diane Abbott then you must be doing something right.

    If supporters are concerned about extremism then why not get behind something like ‘show racism the red card’ which Hibs are affiliated to.

    The FLA was set up to try unite ‘lads’ - the term used down south for the ’lads’ running about in the various firns down here . I agree with those who’ve said it’s more of a front for right wing groups who are attempting this “march and grow” tactic. I remember when BNP used to leaflet outside Ibrox and Tynecastle but never came near Easter Road so hopefully they’ll get zero support if they do appear.

    The EDL started in an identical fashion. Don’t be fooled by the anti-Islam rhetoric, they’re anti-everybody who doesn’t fit in to their vision. Nothing to see here, move along.

    I begrudge that they use the oxygen of oxygen.

    The only oxygen I'd give them is to tell them to go ****** themselves.

    Hibs are an inclusive club, founded to support the local community. We've just supported the ScotGov's anti racism/anti-homophobia/anti xenophobic campaign, and I hope fans back this, and reject the racist, non-inclusive, parochial, British Nationalist FLA.

    In short, they are not Hibs Class, and the only fans I would expect to give this organisation would be the deranged sevco lot.

    Don't be fooled by this mob, and support Hibernian Football club!

    They all look exactly the way you'd expect them to look, quite a spectacle really.

    How anyone can listen to Tommy Robinson speak then say with a straight face that “he’s not an idiot” beggars belief.

    Always find best not to give these types a name nor platform to spread their agenda as doing so simply ligitimises them!

    There's worrying tendency on here seemingly to equate the far right street gangs with the 'antifa', those protesting against the fascists. It's lazy and inaccurate, as if we've taken the 'both cheeks of the same erse' argument we use to define the old firm, and to argue that Celtic are just as bad as Rangers, to new levels of stupidity.

    There should only be two sides, fascists on one side and those who disapprove of fascism on the other. Anything else is ignoring what's right of front of your face. If you can't see the FLA for what they are you're very naive.

    Absolutey spot on. Breathtaking naivety or mischief making.
