Steve Eddowes

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Steve "Edders" Eddowes is the former chairman[1][2] of the English Defence League (EDL). He was appointed to the position in early March 2014 by its leader Tim Ablitt and held it for almost two years. Eddowes was formerly head of security[3] for the EDL, ran Tommy Robinson's protection team,[4] and was its regional organiser for the West Midlands.[5]

In March 2015, Eddowes was present at a meeting with the former EDL leader Tommy Robinson at which a prospective Conservative Party candidate, Afzal Amin, attempted to persuade the EDL to announce a march against the building of a new mosque in Dudley in order that Amin could take the credit for having it called off.[6][7][8]
