Britain First's Jayda Fransen Is Having A Nightmare On Twitter

Oh dear, oh dear

Britain First's deputy leader appears to have re-joined Twitter.

The account purporting to be Jayda Fransen may well be hoping to replicate some of the success her group has had on Facebook, but on a platform where you can't so easily get away with buying fans or exploiting the memory of murdered soldiers, it's not quite going to plan.

She began by trying to refute articles about her but failed to give any supporting evidence whatsoever.

 Fransen then tried to endorse "support" from none other than one of the Chuckle Brothers...

 Despite the fact he had already publicly distanced himself from the group.

Fransen then fell for the misguided furore around the word 'Easter' being supposedly dropped from Easter egg packaging. 

Fransen then gave an insight into what she got up to this Easter weekend.

Of course it should be remembered that back in January, Britain First was denounced by every major Christian denomination in the UK and described as"extremist", "self-serving" and "blasphemous".

Then things got even more surreal when she tried to stake a claim on the memory of Malcolm X.

Then came this absolute gem in which Fransen mis-spelled Dele Alli's name, used the phrase "on the football" and tried to pass off sporting talent as evidence of creeping Sharia.

Then to top it all off Fransen held a Q&A using the hashtag #AskJayda during which she was forced to respond to a series of far-from-serious questions.

Then it got really deep...

Despite being totally ridiculed and having absolutely zero opportunity to further her cause, Fransen still deemed the event a "success".

 

Paul Golding has since claimed the profile has nothing to do with Fransen but has so far failed to respond to requests to elaborate.

 

Fransen then tweeted from the other account and claimed proof of her identity came from the fact it was linked to the Britain First website.

But a cached version of the page shows that just a few days earlier on 26 March, the account was not linked.

It's not been the best of weeks for Britain First. On Thursday they were caught out trying to exploit an image of school children doing yoga as evidence of Islam spreading in British schools.

A British school. Heartbreaking

 As Barry Chuckle would say: "Oh dear oh dear."
