To welcome in 2015, the Anti-Fascist Network has put together an idiots’ guide to the idiots on Britain’s far right. No need to thank us, it’s a public service.

Introducing the man who will revive the fortunes of the BNP... Adam Walker

Introducing the man who will definitely revive the fortunes of the BNP… Adam Walker

Formerly known as Britain’s most successful and ambitious fascist group since the 1930s, recent years have not been kind to the BNP.

Over on the BNP website, Griffin is talking again about ‘media mind-benders’, ‘the ladder of revolutionary consciousness’ and condemning the political elite as ‘the willing puppets of some of the most evil humanoids ever to have walked this planet.’ He’s really lost it.
