Angry White People free pdf 'They've taken over our culture and our way of life.' 'Britain for whites only.' 'Islam is Britain's biggest problem.' These are not strange words in Britain today, nor are the irate faces of far right street mobs strangers to our screens.In this fantastically daring book, Hsiao-Hung Pai, an 'inscrutable foreigner', follows a group of individuals who got caught up in the wave of far right street movements that began in 2009. Among those who Pai gets in with are Darren, who took part in the formation of the English Defence League but who left it after two years of activism- a Reading-based activist nicknamed Viking, who once occupied the cathedral in Derby in order to assert his right to carry a sword. And the infamous Tommy Robinson, founder of the EDL, whom Pai saw change from a young, foul-mouthed Luton lad to a well-received, suited and booted, Oxford Union guest speaker.Delving deep into the day-to-day of the most marginalised section of the white working-class, Pai uncovers that their ideologies are not an aberration in modern British society, quite the contrary, not only are they very much a part of it, but they are constantly reproduced, rejuvenated and mainstreamed by the media and powers that be.
