'Unite Against Fascism' To End Campaign

Mong: "by banning hate speech we ban ourselves".

Pressure group Unite Against Fascism, who have been instrumental in organising angry protests against the British National Party, have today announced that they are ceasing operations with immediate effect.

The surprise announcement comes in the wake of yesterday's protests at BBC Broadcasting House in London, when around 200 UAF demonstrators clashed with police in an attempt to stop British NaziNational Party leader Nick Von Griffin from making an unmitigated twat of himself on Question Time.

UAF spokesman Martin Mong said, "unfortunately we see no option other than to end our campaign. Firstly, last night's Question Time showed that Von Griffin is more than capable of screwing up his Party's chances without our protests.

"Secondly - and more importantly - UAF as an organisation is committed to combating the spread of hate and hate speech in Great Britain. Because of this we hate the BNP, and call for the BNP to be banned. We talk incessantly about just how much we hate the BNP. Therefore, we ourselves are guilty of hate speech, and thus would need to campaign against ourselves, and call for our hate speech also to be banned."

Mr Mong added, "as a result of this existential crisis, we are reluctantly forced to cease operations in the face of overwhelming irony".

The U.A.F. are a parody of stupidity but without any punchline. I shall believe then, that they'll be protesting just as vociferously when Anjem Choudary leads his "March for the Sharia" through the streets of London on Halloween.

I also believe in the tooth fairy, the green giant, and Rumpelstiltskin.
