Setback for the Imaginary Struggle Against Islamisation of Australia
Australian Defence League leader arrested for immigration offences

The irony of all ironies as the leader of the racist, xenophobic, nationalist ADL is arrested for a visa violation. Turns out that Martin Brennan, is a British citizen, not an Australian citizen; an immigrant
Martin Brennan, the English leader of the ‘Australian Defence League’, appears to have been arrested and placed in detention @ Maribyrnong Detention Centre. Brennan claims he was arrested on July 19 for over-staying his visa, which expired on March 17, 2010. The arrest comes ahead of a rally in Sydney–organised by the ADL and members of the ‘Australian Protectionist Party’–to protest the Islamisation of Australia.
The irony of his arrest for being an ‘illegal non-citizen’ is lost on his handful of Australian followers.
The massed ranks of the Australian Defence League rallied in Sydney on 30 July to protest against sharia law. Judging by photographic evidence, there were fewer than 40 of them. A contributory factor in the poor turnout might possibly have been that the ADL’s leader Martin Brennan has been arrested and is currently held in a detention centre facing charges of being an illegal immigrant.
