Daily Mail's Witchfinder-General Graham Grant in Cahoots with Nazi Thug

It makes me feel all nostalgic for Art Deco, Hercule Poirot and  the 1930s. This time it isn't Rothermere cosying up to and supporting Moseley's Blackshirts, but Graham Grant, self-appointed Witchfinder-General for Scotland, (officially Home Affairs editor) cosying up to and working hand in glove with a Britnazi thug and internet troll by the name of Andrew Skinner with links to the fascist English Defence League and other right-wing nutjobs.

Graham Grant published on Saturday the results of a week-long "Probe" into "vile" Cybernats in The Scottish Daily Mail, which actually turned out to be an excuse to doorstep, photograph in the street and publish prurient details about ordinary Scots who happen to support independence and most of whom have never tweeted anything remotely offensive in their lives.

Who is Andrew Skinner?

Andrew Skinner runs a Facebook page entitled Vote No to Scottish Independence and Protect the Union. However, it wasn't always called that. He re-branded it last year, prior to that it was called British Unity.

You don't need to look far down the page before you find foul language and puerile insults against leading pro-independence politicians and any ordinary facebook user who posts a pro-independence comment.

Skinner has tried to clean up his act and distance his Vote No page from its EDL Neo-Nazi past. However, not being that bright traces remain, such as an old advert for his @BritishUnity Twitter account:

Let's have a wee look at that Twitter account. Oh, surprise, surprise! He or his colleagues are in contact with former EDL leader and convicted fraudster Tommy Robinson and posts some "vile abuse" to boot.

Here he or his colleagues are having a go at Muslims, a favourite EDL pastime

Here he or his colleagues tweet a friend KevC57 asking him to support a petition. Who is he? Only Kevin Carroll, Ex-leader and Co-founder of the EDL.

Here he or his colleagues ask for support from Mark Caine, another right wing, Muslim-hating nutjob with a blog and UKPrideMedia. Well, click the link.

Somewhat incongruously, he or his colleagues also have links to the Nationalist Review. Incongruous until you click the link and find it's a Neo-Nazi Britnat review.

Since Graham Grant took over as Homophobe-in-Chief at the Daily Hate from Wee Free John MacLeod after MacLeod was outed as a self-loathing closet queen in the late 1990s, and now that poof-hating is not considered polite, poor Graham has been thrashing around looking for another easily-identifiable group to bully.

His need to bully someone and landing on the Cybernats appears to have left him holding the baby for clearly identifying the Daily Mail with a Nazi thug for the first time since the 1930s.

A final piece of 1930s nostalgia for you:
