The Northern Echo: Hartlepool man admits violent disorder involving police during English Defence League rally Hartlepool man admits violent disorder involving police during English Defence League rally

Five men - including one from the North-East - have pleaded guilty to violent disorder following an investigation into disturbances during an English Defence League rally.

Michael Wilson, James Olley-Shields, Phillip Collins, Christopher Layton and Michael Dyer all admitted the charge during a hearing at Birmingham Crown Court.

Missiles, including rocks and glass bottles, were thrown at police lines during the protest in Centenary Square on July 20 last year.

Wilson, 19, of Arkley Crescent, Hartlepool; Olley-Shields, 21, of Hanbury Hill, Stourbridge; Collins, 28, of Bandywood Crescent, Kingstanding, Birmingham; Layton, 27, of Oakhurst Road, Acocks Green, Birmingham, and Dyer, 33, of Morse Road, Nailbridge, Gloucestershire, were all granted bail and will be sentenced on a date to be fixed.

Eight other defendants accused of committing offences at an EDL demonstration in Birmingham city centre were not required to enter a plea during the hearing.

Its a wonder numerous ****NONE*****anti E.E.L. Law-abiding, Taxpaying Working Taxpayers were NOT arrested in many public streets for' similar offences' after reading the perverse shocking liberal - minded COMPENSATION award of over FOUR THOUSAND POUNDS of working Taxpayers money, GIVEN to a convicted Child Murderer in Prison. This award of course was made by a so called ******LEARNED JUDGE*******. ...The British liberal Voter backed..so called......'Justice System' STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN. No wonder there is a stampede of Voters heading in the direction of Nigel FARRAGE.

Yet certain Punters in London and elsewhere who burned some **SACRED BRITISH Remembrance Poppies in a public street, an insult to our' brave forefathers who died, sacrificed and fought for 'Britain and our proud British Empire, were NOT imprisoned but instead, FINED a MEASILY £6O each. I smell stinking shocking 'inept unfair political twisted perverted correctness' in this case, a shocking affront to the British people. Nigel FARAGE take note please re forthcoming voting elections.
