TWAFA Comment: Another day, and another conviction…or rather two convictions. More evidence, as if any were needed, that the core of far-right activity is based around mindless violence. Questions also need to be raised about the maturity of far-right members such as Stamp, talking about his new ‘bad boy gloves’. As for the impact on Stamp’s son, of him going to prison, he has hardly been setting the young lad a good example has he?
