A new far right political party has been launch this week assisted by North East fascists. Called True Brits (TB), it is expected to be populated by current and former members of the British National Party (BNP). It has been created in the wake of the demise of the BNP and the split in organisational leadership between Andrew Brons and Nick Griffin.
We need to take a closer look at who the toxic team are who are leading this, among them, holocaust deniers, Hitler worshipers BNP, NF racial hate mongerers, and individuals with links to hardcore nazi organisations.More about those behind the party is here.
Among the management of this new party, is Ken Booth (deputy chairman) and Kevin Scott (Secretary of the Steering Group) of Newcastle. Booth earned his fascist stripes during his many years as North East organiser for the National Front and later the BNP. He was exposed for describing Auschwitz as being comparable to â€śDisney Landâ€?, refusing to believe the â€śofficial figuresâ€? of those who died in the Holocaust and did not recognise the â€śauthenticityâ€? of the buildings at Auschwitz.
Scotts credentials are no better, with a conviction for assault, and using threatening words and behaviour towards a group of Asians, he was the North East BNP organiser for many years.
Itâ€™s a fair prediction to make that this party will have as many racist and fascist views as the BNP, if not worse, and will be similar in all but name.
The creation of this party is a clear reminder of why continued vigilance is required against fascism in all its forms, and why we need to expose and prevent far right activity whether it involves views expressed on line, actions in everyday life, or more worryingly, when it attempts to take power.
