‘Pound-shop fascists’ Britain First have been raising funds for their hate-filled, xenophobic cause by selling overpriced Remembrance memorabilia – imported from China.
The Daily Telegraph has reported Britain First’s marketing strategy, which uses that symbol of Remembrance, the poppy.

Profit on the ‘White Cross Poppy Lapel badge’, for example, is around £4.80. Here’s the proof:
It must be particularly galling for Britain First’s supporters to find out that a group spreading hatred against the foreigners is cynically using foreign-made goods to fleece its own supporters of their hard-earned cash.
