Members of Britain First (BF) plan to march into the borough following revelations that Muslim Brotherhood (MB) are operating from a flat above shops in Cricklewood Broadway.

MB was a praised political group in Egypt but were ousted from power amid popular demonstrations.

They are believed to be launching a fight-back against Egypt’s military rulers from their new home.

BF, which was registered as a political party in 2011, campaigns against Islam, immigration and abortion.

It was founded by Jim Dowson, a former fundraiser for the BNP, and its members includes several ex-BNP stalwarts.

The group are calling for people to join them in a statement posted on their website and Facebook page.

It says: “We want to show them they are NOT welcome here in the UK! Come and stand with us and show the jihadists that they can leave our fair country and go back to their own country and spread death and hatred! All sensible patriots welcome, please bring British flags. “See you there!”

Brent Police are aware of the BF’s plans and in an email sent to resident which has been seen by the Times they said they would develop an ‘appropriate policing response’.

Brent Police failed to comment when contacted by the Times.
