One of the more ludicrous claims by the English Defence League and associated riff-raff, was that made following the so-called March For England demonstration in Brighton back in April. This demo, claims the EDL, saw marchers pelted with bottles and allegedly resulted in injuries to a ten year old girl.
As you can see from the screenshot below, the image has elicited some angry responses. Which would be understandable, if there was any truth to the claim.
The image actually comes from the Epilepsy Association of Central Florida (EACF) site, which is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and adults with epilepsy. It appears as an illustration to an article posted on March 8th of this year which discusses issues around mild traumatic brain injury and youngsters. The image can be seen in situ here.
It's not clear whether the image is stock - meaning it is supplied from an agency or company providing images for specific use - or one supplied by the author of the article. What IS clear however, is that the child is not who the EDL claims.
Eventually, the liar is outed, which forces him to go on the offensive.
And here is the liar himself: Chris Howard (who posts on Facebook as Laughing at the Muslim Defence League 2). Lying scum, the lot of them.
Thanks to EDL News for much of the info above.
