All Hanging Together

"They think they can get away with ruining our country, turning us into a Third World country, giving away our homes, jobs and heritage," wrote Fransen [Britain First's Deputy Leader, Jayda Fransen], "but they will face the wrath of the British First movement, make no mistake about it! We will not rest until every traitor is punished for their crimes against our country. And by punished, I mean good old-fashioned British justice at the end of a rope!"

That was last September.

Today, her organisation's stalwart, pictured above, having described himself to the Police as "a political activist", is preparing to stand trial specifically as a terrorist.

No Irish Republican organisation has murdered a Member of Parliament in 26 years, and the people responsible are now such pillars of the British Establishment that they stay overnight at Windsor Castle and so forth.

No Islamist or Leftist organisation has ever murdered a Member of Parliament.

But the Far Right has just done so, in 2016.

National Fronts come and BNPs go, EDLs come and Britain Firsts go, but certain institutional and organisational manifestations of the Far Right are perennial, hitherto even permanent.

Tommy Mair's is the Springbok Club, which is run by the people who also run the London Swinton Circle.

And that, in turn, was addressed by Liam Fox (born 1961) and by Owen Paterson (born 1956) as recently as 2014.

Ah, those old 1980s Tory Boys, in their Hang Mandela T-shirts and all the rest of it. Wherever did they all end up?
