A right-wing group suffered public humiliation for the third time in Cricklewood after just a handful of their members turned up at a march on Saturday.

The demonstration by the South East Alliance (SAE) was once again eclipsed by the hundreds of people who turned up to protest against their presence.

The red-faced SAE members planned to demonstrate outside a flat above shops in Cricklewood Broadway which is speculated to be the headquarters of Muslim Brotherhood (MB), a praised political group in Egypt but were ousted from power amid popular demonstrations.

However it has never been proven that it is the MB HQ.

SAE, which held a similar under attended protest at the same spot in June and July, deny they have links to the English Defence League claiming they are ‘a non-political community based street movement’.

However, their Face book page is filled with anti-Muslim posts.
