New ‘fash for cash’ convicted fraudster Stephen Yaxley-Lennon wannabe first flopped onto the far right scene when he attended a pro fascism march in Poland in Nov 2018. Goddard was quoted saying: “You’ve [Poland] not bowed down to Islam and you’re not bowing down to globalism either.” Goddard aligns himself with Israel and attempts to manipulate his pro Israel stance to promote friction between Jewish and Muslim communities.
Seeking to make a few quid off the oft proven to be gullible far right public Goddard set up a PayPal account. He probably won’t have it long though as PayPal have started taking action against individuals using their platform to promote hate. (The address if you wish to email PayPal to report behaviour that contravenes their terms of service is: firstname.lastname@example.org )
Goddard came to the wider attention of the public when he copied the yellow vests used in French protests (The French have been using high vis yellows vests to identify and unite fellow protesters in their campaigning against fuel tax) for his fledgling hate group to promote their anti Islam protest in the UK in December 2018.
He had, however, been sniffing round the far right for a while as this post asking how he can join failed ‘political party’ Britain First over a year ago shows:
Goddard and pals blocked Westminster bridge on 14 December 2018, shouting a medley of slogans which appeared to confuse their actual message as the ranting included shouts to ‘cancel Brexit’, ‘elect a new Mayor of London’ and ‘fight Islam’.
There were reports in the press that Goddard’s crew refused to let ambulances pass through the protest.
Goddard claims not to be the leader of the Yellow vests but is clearly the rallying point for the far right movement he is trying to muscle in on.
Goddard describes himself as ‘honest and courageous’ but his Gab account confirms that he is in fact just another far right scumbag spewing hatred and bigotry from his computer in an attempt to con people into donating money to him.
These are some of the hate posts currently viewable on Goddard’s social media:
Goddard’s true colours as a thug were shown in December 2018 when he and a group of fellow yobs accosted MP Anna Soubry outside Parliament and proceeded to bombard her with abuse relating to her pro Remain EU views. Ms Soubry was accused of being a traitor and ‘being on the side of Hitler.’ The language used was particularly concerning as the term ‘traitor’ was the same phrase used by the murderer of pro Remain MP Jo Cox in 2016.
Historian Mike Stuckberry expertly summarises the verbal attack on Anna Soubry (complete with video footage) in this Twitter thread:
I know I'm going on about this, but I'm confused and disturbed at the fact this kind of behaviour continues to be tolerated.
It's exactly the kind of menace and rhetoric that ended with the death of a sitting MP. pic.twitter.com/LlhB5BhVu2

The police are currently investigating Goddard and co for the incident.
