    Welsh Defence League links with neo-Nazis are unmasked

    ecretly-filmed footage in Monday's Week In Week Out programme also exposes criminal activity among some Welsh Defence League (WDL) supporters.

    Publicly, the WDL says it is a non-racist organisation.

    A judge who has examined the evidence in the programme said some were acting to "inflame racial hatred".

    The WDL - aligned to the English Defence League - was set up last year by an ex-soccer hooligan and author Jeff Marsh in response to Muslim extremists abusing troops returning from Afghanistan.

    It has attracted hundreds of followers and held demonstrations in Cardiff, Swansea and Wrexham.

    Posing as a new member of the group, an undercover journalist accompanied a number of Welsh supporters to a protest.

    ex-soccer hooligan? Marsh was convicted again this year for an attack near Ninian Park and is banned from all football grounds.

    He's pushing fifty but he's been getting his jollies with this moronic behaviour for 35 years and he won't grow up. Typical EDL.
