He was a leading active member of the the Far Right from 2009 when he joined the EDL (English Defence League). He started out as a foot soldier but quickly worked his way up to role of Regional Organiser (RO) for the East Anglia Region.
Whilst Regional Organiser he was responsible for setting up new divisions of the EDL throughout East Anglia also for arranging demonstrations and sorting travel from various places around East Anglia, recruiting and fundraising. He was also the admin of many EDL pages on Social Media and thus has a lot of insight to the narrative of the Far Right.
