EDL financier’s murderous “Final Solution” for Muslims and political opponents

The Guardian have now confirmed that English Defence League financier Alan Lake was indeed the author of a horrific “Final Solution” blueprint targeting Britain’s entire Muslim population, anyone perceived to be sympathetic towards them, and senior members of the current British government such as Prime Minister David Cameron and Deputy PM Nick Clegg. The Archbishop of Canterbury was also included in the list of targets for execution. Lake wanted to open a debate on the subject and therefore requested in his message that supporters should provide further suggestions for people who should be killed.

The millionaire businessman Alan Lake, who wrote “it would be great to see them executed or tortured to death”, posted the message on his “4Freedoms” website on 23 May 2010. According to The Guardian, although Lake removed the references to execution and torture the next day, he still claims that “the fundamental point of that piece is correct” and that he is “holding people responsible for the consequences of their actions”.

As discussed in the Pickled Politics article summarising recent developments involving the EDL’s public response to the atrocity in Norway along with the organisation’s connections to the terrorist Anders Breivik (described by the Norwegian police as a “Christian fundamentalist”), during his BBC interview with Newsnight’s Jeremy Paxman on 25 July 2011, EDL leader Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (aka “Tommy Robinson”) claimed that he does not know Alan Lake despite the fact that Lake himself has publicly admitted to his considerable involvement with the organisation. A detailed overview of Lake’s background, his affiliations with multiple extreme Far-Right groups and Christian fundamentalist organisations, and his extensive activities in both Europe and the United States to further the EDL’s agenda can be read via Hope Not Hate/Searchlight here.

A screenshot of the original message by Alan Lake is displayed below (via EDL News and 1 Million United). Along with the threats of extreme violence, particularly noticeable are the similarities to the virulent hostility towards Muslims en masse and the death threats against politicians which are also present in Anders Breivik’s 1500-page “manifesto”. Incidentally, according to Channel 4 News, it turns out that Lake was interviewed on Norwegian television in April 2011.

Paul Ray, a self-professed “Christian fundamentalist” who is one of the EDL’s original founders and is currently being investigated by British domestic extremism officers for his possible links to Anders Breivik but denies being his mentor, has confirmed that Alan Lake has a major leadership role in the EDL. From The Guardian:

Paul Ray…..said: “As things have gone on, it’s become apparent how extreme [Lake's] views are. This is a guy directing an extreme far-right movement in the UK.”

Ray said Lake played an important role in linking the EDL to influential far-right communities online. “The anti-jihad movement isn’t your mainstream press, it’s all online [far-right] blogs and websites and Lake has been able to keep them on board. They [Tommy Robinson, the EDL's leader] know that without this online presence they won’t have any support.”

    Yaxley-Lennon says he doesn’t know Alan Lake just like he forgot that Richard Price was a convicted paedophile!

    Good posts, both this one and the other one you did about EDL links to Breivik. If Lake is a financial backer, what does the money get spent on? Before the internet a political party/ pressure group would have to have money for leaflets and newspapers but now you can put out propaganda for nothing. You used to have to spend time raising money for running an organisation. Do you know where Lake’s financial contributions go?

    Do you know where Lake’s financial contributions go?

    The third paragraph of the article includes a link to a detailed profile of Lake by Searchlight, which mentions his considerable financial contributions along with discussing his other activities involving the EDL. Searchlight would therefore be the best people to contact for a more detailed breakdown of the specific areas where Lake’s money has been utilised.

    Thanks Jai. I was thinking of fringe parties in the past which fell apart when they could no longer pay the printer’s bill for leaflets.

    Alan Lake does raise a valid point however that most of the vocal advocates for multiculturalism often live completely detached from its consequences in exclusive rich white ghettos.

    Look no further than Billy Bragg in his gated mansion house in ‘horribly white’ Dorset.

  6. Refresh — on 2nd August, 2011 at 10:07 am  

    Alan Lake and his co-conspirators are attempting to pull off a deceit of a global and historical magnitude.

    Lake, I am sure, does not live amongst his playthings.

  7. Cluebot — on 2nd August, 2011 at 12:49 pm  

    Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (aka “Tommy Robinson”) claimed that he does not know Alan Lake

    At one point Paxman kept on interrupting Lennon with “Do you know him [i.e. Alan Lake]“. After the third time, at around 3:53 in the clip, Lennon said “I do know him”.

    But don’t let that spoil the narrative.

    this mad man Alan Lake comments are almost exactly what Anders Breivik was spouting in his manifesto.

    islamic enclaves, send liberals to their death etc etc

    If paul ray edl founder is saying alan lake’s views are too extreme boy you better believe it!

  9. Cynical/Realist? — on 3rd August, 2011 at 9:34 am  

    A slight point – the article by Lake is not giving a list for execution. It is proposing forcing Muslims and their sympahisers into small enclaves (ghettos). Lake believe it is the Muslims in these ghettos that would execute any non-Muslims also forced in. Lake only suggests anyone will be executed if they attempt to leave.

    lake’s view are abhorrent, vicious and plain’out-there’ as it is – why embellish them? You only open the opportunity for people like Lake to then come back at accusations with the argument they didn’t say that and that their views are being manipulated.

    These views are detastable enough without opening up that opportunity.

  10. Jai — on 3rd August, 2011 at 11:07 am  

    Lake believe it is the Muslims in these ghettos that would execute any non-Muslims also forced in. Lake only suggests anyone will be executed if they attempt to leave.

    That is still a list for execution, since Lake is promoting that a list is drawn up of people who will be deliberately sent to their presumed deaths and, if they are not killed in these ghettos and manage to leave, Lake is explicitly promoting their subsequent execution.

    The presumption that Muslims would kill non-Muslims forced into the ghettos is of course yet more stereotyping by Lake, but his intention is that the list of non-Muslims involved should be killed one way or another. And as I said above, Lake openly states that he and his allies will execute these people if they leave the ghettos.

    However, you are of course right that great care should definitely be taken when describing the views & actions of such bigots, as they will cynically exploit any opportunity available when attempting to undermine any exposure of them.
