  • Jailed for abusive behaviour on train from Putney to Waterloo in London

Seven football supporters who chanted songs that ‘glorified and idolised’ the murderer of Stephen Lawrence were jailed today.
The Charlton Athletic fans, who had been at an FA Cup match against Fulham in January 2012, were jailed for their abusive behaviour on a train from Putney to Waterloo in south-west London.
The men - aged from 22 to 31, who had been at Craven Cottage - were convicted of causing racially aggravated fear of violence after witnesses complained of sexual and racially motivated abuse.
Guilty: Ben Boylett was sentenced to 12 months in prison and an eight-year football banning order
Ban: Sean Fowle received eight months in prison and an eight-year football banning order

British Transport Police said the group chanted in support of Gary Dobson, three days after he was convicted of murdering Stephen Lawrence. They were sentenced today at Blackfriars Crown Court.
Baljit Ubhey, the Crown Prosecution Service’s London Chief Crown Prosecutor, said: ‘These men were singing and chanting racist abuse in praise of the convicted murderers of Stephen Lawrence.
 
‘To glorify and idolise these men was disturbing and upsetting. Their racially and sexually abusive language left members of the public shocked and disgusted.
‘Witnesses said they felt intimidated and feared there was a real and significant risk of violence. I would like to thank the witnesses who came forward and gave evidence to support this prosecution.

‘I hope these convictions stand as a warning that racist and abusive behaviour will not be tolerated in our city.’

Mick Everett, Charlton FC's Head of Operations, said: ‘The club was shocked to hear of the rowdy, intimidating behaviour, and the chanting of racist songs on a train by a handful of our supporters.
‘Their actions are totally condemned by everyone at the club and indeed, I am sure, by Charlton supporters everywhere.
‘Although this isolated incident does not reflect on the overwhelming majority of our fans, these arrests are a kick in the teeth to everyone associated with the club, who have put so much effort into our campaign over the years.

BTP Detective Sergeant Jane Hill said: ‘The actions of these men were both offensive and extremely intimidating to other passengers on board the train at the time.
‘An investigation was swiftly launched to gather evidence and by working closely with Charlton Athletic FC, coupled with excellent CCTV footage, intelligence reports and statements from witnesses, we were able to move quickly to trace the men.’
She added: ‘This minority blight the rail journeys of many ordinary passengers and stain the reputation of the game and the country. They also continue to cause us problems that require significant resources to contain.’
David Bone, 23, of Woolwich, south-east London, and Daniel Clay, 31, of Grove Park, south-east London, received 18 months in prison and an eight year football banning order.
The same eight year match ban was imposed on Ben Boylett, 26, of London, and Jason Butler, 31, of Abbey Wood, south-east London, who were also given one year in prison.
Sean Fowle and Aaron Phinbow, both also of Abbey Wood and aged 25, also received an eight year ban and eight months behind bars.
Jake Embery, 22, of Orpington, south-east London, was given a six month suspended sentence, a four year match ban and ordered to pay £3,000 costs.

The nationalist movement has been decimated and emasculated.

We have the traitor Griffin having trashed the BNP, and now the idiot Kevin Bryan 'leading' the NF.

Is there no hope for nationalism here in the UK?

You state that nationalism has been decimated and emasculated as if this discovery is some kind of surprise!

The well known article from the Daily Express in 1999 stated that this was the intended fate for British Nationalism and that every form of skulduggery would be used to achieve it so WHY are you so puzzled that the ruling elite have done as they promised?

I have lost count of the people I have met who simply couldn't grasp the idea that before you stab somebody in the back you have to get right behind them! I spotted Griffin ,and several others!,for what they were and met with a torrent of abuse for making even the vaguest criticism of these "Super Nationalists",the fact that they continually missed open goals and snatched defeat from the jaws of victory never penetrated the rather childlike skulls of most nationalists!

Kev Bryan is still following the Griffin/Lecomber banning order for you NWN. After all, it's not too long ago that 'fatty Bryan' was still supporting Griffin.
I remember Bryan slagging you off in his BNP Griffin supporting days.How he can work to keep you out and then say "why are you doing nothing" shows the man's idiocy.
I hear he was also involved in trying to stop the JOHN TYNDALL Memorial meeting yet again.
