Muslim fundamentalists have radicalised former Britain First leader Paul Golding after he spent his first night in prison.
Golding was sentenced to 18 weeks in prison for religiously-aggravated harassment, while fellow Britain First spokesperson Jayda Fransen was also sentenced for the same crime, but for nine months due to multiple counts.
Golding’s staunch anti-Islam stance softened dramatically after a lengthy conversation with his cellmate Manzoor, who explained why his worldview had ‘a number of troubling aspects’.
His conversion to Islam was revealed at breakfast this morning when he greeted the kitchen staff with “As-Salaam-Alaikum”.
As one prison guard explained the incident. They told us, “I’ve seen it many times, these radicals seek out the weak minded, those with a feeble intellect, and before you know it they’re reciting the Koran all day long, calling themselves Mustafa, and growing a beard.
“Paul’s only got a day’s worth of stubble, but the beard has started. It’ll be coming along nicely by the time he gets out in a few weeks time. You’re always much easier to convert if you’re a fundamentalist before you get into prison.
Prison authorities have expressed concerns about the speed with which Golding was radicalised.
Governor Simon Williams told reporters, “Paul Golding was clearly radicalised before lights out last night. It was a surprise to some people, yes.
“The smart money was on him lasting at least a week before capitulating to the Islamic fundamentalists in here.
“I’m fifty quid down to Dave on C-Block, but I’ve gone double or quits on him choosing the name Muhamed Ali.”
