Madrid government surrenders to immigration blackmail

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez meeting King Mohammed VI of Morocco, who has blatantly blackmailed the Madrid government over immigration.

The Spanish government has been humiliated, conceding to Moroccan blackmail over illegal immigration. Simultaneously, by a strange non-coincidence, politically motivated prosecutors in Madrid have leaked news that they are preparing a criminal case for ‘racial incitement’ against H&D’s Spanish comrade Isabel Peralta, over an anti-immigration speech that she gave outside the Moroccan Embassy in May last year.

Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has surrendered control over Madrid’s diplomacy, because he has proved unable or unwilling to exercise control over immigration.

And the consequences could be severe for Spain’s access to natural gas, and the prices paid for energy by long-suffering Spanish consumers.

This all concerns Western Sahara, a former Spanish colony, where control has since 1976 been disputed between Morocco and an independence movement called Polisario Front, which is backed by Algeria.

Until this week, the Madrid government backed the Polisario – i.e. backed Western Sahara’s independence from Morocco – partly in order to remain on good terms with Algeria, which supplies Spain with natural gas.

For a year or more, Morocco has sought to blackmail Spain into changing its position on Western Sahara. Morocco’s main weapon is control over illegal immigration into Spanish territory. They have indicated that they are prepared to turn the immigration tap on or off. And Spain’s socialist government is naturally unable or unwilling to take firm action against the consequent flood.

Essentially this was the background to a demonstration addressed by Isabel Peralta in Madrid in May last year. The demonstration targeted both the Moroccan government’s blackmail, and the Spanish authorities’ weakness.

Now the argument of Isabel and her colleagues in the Spanish nationalist youth movement Bastión Frontal has proved correct, but the response has been to threaten criminal charges against Isabel!

Having for decades argued that Western Sahara’s future should be settled by a referendum of its inhabitants, the Madrid government has this week carried out a U-turn and adopted a pro-Moroccan position.

Consequently the Moroccan Ambassador to Madrid has been reinstated, but the Algerian Ambassador has been recalled, threatening vital trade deals including the supply of natural gas.

The entire situation is a shambles, rooted in the inability of Spain’s socialist government to stand up for Spanish interests.

And as so often across the West, when the arguments of nationalists are vindicated, the authorities’ response is to persecute us. And as so often, weakness in the face of an invader or a blackmailer merely invites further invasion and further blackmail.

H&D readers will hear more from Isabel Peralta, beginning with our next edition in May.

Madrid counts blessings of “democracy” and “diversity” amid immigrant crime wave

Forty-one years ago today – on 23rd February 1981 – Lt. Col. Antonio Tejero of Spain’s Guardia Civil made a last stand against the presumed benefits of ‘democratic’ party politics when he stormed Madrid’s parliament – the Cortes – as part of an attempted military coup by forces loyal to the memory of Spain’s anti-communist leader Gen. Francisco Franco, who had died more than five years earlier.

When H&D‘s assistant editor first visited Madrid for nationalist events in the 1990s, Tejero was still in prison – in fact our delegation (from the Tyndall-era BNP) attended a ‘Tejero Libertad’ rally in central Madrid, which drew a vast crowd.

Today many of us would take a more nuanced view of the Franco years – for a critical analysis of some aspects see Peter Rushton’s H&D article ‘The Cavalry of St George’ – but there can be little doubt that Tejero (who will be 90 in a few weeks time) has seen many of his warnings justified in the past four decades – about democratic corruption and the socially corrosive effects of liberalism.

Even the mainstream media can no longer avoid the epidemic of violent crime on Madrid’s streets, carried out by increasingly notorious immigrant gangs, many of whom originate from the Dominican Republic.

Unlike London, Madrid’s local government is controlled by nominal ‘conservatives’ of the Partido Popular, but the PP’s regional leader recently indicated the bankruptcy of her entire ideological tradition when she protested that the gangs should not be described as alien: “These ‘Latin’ gangs are second-generation immigrants, as Spanish.. as you or I.”

A dog born in a stable does not become a horse – even if its parents were also born in a stable!

One effect of the crime spiral has been to boost support for the nationalist youth group Bastión Frontal, who held an anti-gang protest outside Madrid’s government offices last Friday.

Bastión Frontal leader Isabel Peralta told demonstrators that they should object to the criminals being labelled ‘Latin gangs’. These gangsters are not the descendants of Julius Caesar or Trajan! Bastión Frontal and their fellow Spaniards are the true descendants of the Roman heroes of antiquity, the true claimants to the Latin heritage at the heart of European civilisation.

Left wing activists and journalists are increasingly frightened by the growth of Bastión Frontal, which has just expanded into new branches including the Navarre region.

So much so that the media are playing their usual game of searching for isolated incidents of non-political misconduct by anyone linked to the group, and desperately trying to smear the entire organisation. The typical tactics of opponents who know that they can no longer rely on political argument. If the benefits of ‘diversity’ and ‘democracy’ were so obvious, the media and the left would be able to base their arguments on those benefits – but instead they have to search for discreditable conduct by occasional individuals on our own side.

Bastión Frontal is from a different ideological tradition to many Franco supporters – they look for inspiration not to the late Caudillo but to the socially-conscious Falangism of José Antonio Primo de Rivera and Ramiro Ledesma Ramos.

Isabel Peralta – the brightest star of a new generation of European nationalists – will soon be writing for H&D to explain the differences between this tradition and that of the reactionary, UKIP-style right that is temporarily attracting votes of many Spaniards disgusted by the two-party system.

Remembering Dresden – 77 years after the terror bombing

77 years ago today the RAF and USAAF began their terror-bombing of the historic city of Dresden, incinerating countless civilians including many women and children who were fleeing the advance of Stalin’s Red Army.

RAF Wing Commander Hubert Raymond Allen wrote:
“The final phase of Bomber Command’s operations was far and away the worst. Traditional British chivalry and the use of minimum force in war was to become a mockery and the outrages perpetrated by the bombers will be remembered a thousand years hence.”

Four years ago Lady Michèle Renouf was arrested for her impromptu speech at the 2018 Dresden Commemoration. As reported in H&D, Dresden prosecutors eventually abandoned Lady Renouf’s scheduled trial in October 2020, fearing embarrassment in front of the international press.

This afternoon German patriots and international guests will gather for the annual memorial march in tribute to those who died on 13th-14th March 1945.

We are sorry that for unavoidable reasons we cannot join the Dresden Commemoration today alongside our German friends and international delegates. However be assured that your British comrades will be thinking of you today and remembering the horror and shame that was brought on our nation 77 years ago. We look forward to standing together with our German and other European comrades in the continuing struggle for the True Europe.

Jewish Chronicle boasts of “hounding out” NF chairman from London street demo

Gideon Falter of the ‘Campaign Against Anti-Semitism’

Tony Martin, chairman of the National Front, was “hounded out” of a public event in a London street on Monday night, according to a report in the Jewish Chronicle.

An ultra-Zionist lobby group called Campaign Against Anti-Semitism (CAA) was staging a demonstration outside the BBC, accusing the broadcaster of “bias” against Jews.

In his capacity as a photojournalist and video blogger, Tony Martin has frequently attended and filmed public demonstrations. The CAA were holding a public demonstration in the open air just off Oxford Street – one of the busiest streets in the world – and had absolutely no right to dictate who did or did not film them.

Nevertheless it was entirely predictable that the arrogant CAA chief executive Gideon Falter should assume the right to dictate to native Britons, and Falter duly played up to the stereotype, parroting the far-left antifa slogan “racist scum off our streets”.

Tony Martin at the Cenotaph with his NF colleague, the late Richard Edmonds, who would have been proud to see Tony’s courage on Monday night in defying the rage of a Zionist mob.

It’s not clear from the film published by CAA and the Jewish Chronicle whether threats were used by CAA security to remove Mr Martin, but what is clear is that he showed considerable courage in venturing into this Zionist mob alone and unprotected.

H&D readers will know the wailing that would have resulted had the boot been on the other foot: in other words had a Jew or other ‘anti-fascist’ been ‘hounded out’ of a public event on a London street by the NF or any other racial nationalist, or for that matter by any anti-Zionist group.

Congratulations to Tony Martin for getting the enemy to show his true face so blatantly!

Madrid student faces prosecution for defending the heroic Blue Division

Spanish racial nationalism – past and present – has received ‘viral’ attention online following a controversial speech by young Falangist activist Isabel Peralta, who now faces charges from Madrid prosecutors who are responding to pressure from the usual suspects.

Isabel Peralta’s speech, widely shared online and reported by the mainstream media, was part of a rally of 300 Spanish nationalists in central Madrid on February 13th, commemorating the anniversary of the Battle of Krasny Bor, near Leningrad in February 1943.

During this battle the Division Azul (Blue Division) – comprising Spanish volunteers dedicated to the struggle against Bolshevism – fought a heroic action against Stalin’s Red Army hordes. Though they incurred heavy casualties – more than 70% of their troops killed, wounded or captured – the Blue Division and their comrades from the 4th SS Polizei Panzergrenadier Division turned back the Soviet advance.

Adolf Hitler personally designed the Blue Division Medal following the noble sacrifice of the Spanish volunteers at Krasny Bor.

A portrait of martyred Falangist leader José Antonio Primo de Rivera, with a medal issued to international volunteers including the Condor Legion who helped defeat communism in Spain after his death. Two years after this Civil War victory, the Division Azul honourably defended Germany in return, fighting in horrific conditions on the Eastern Front.

About 20% of the first Blue Division volunteers were students, mainly supporters of Falangism, the radical wing of Spanish nationalism associated with José Antonio Primo de Rivera until his capture and execution by communist republicans in November 1936 during the early stages of the Civil War.

Paying tribute to the Blue Division, Isabel Peralta said: “It is our supreme obligation to fight for Spain, to fight for Europe, now weak and liquidated by the enemy. The enemy is always going to be the same, although with different masks.”

During 2021 Isabel Peralta has become the brightest star of radical racial nationalism. She is an organiser for the new activist group Bastión Frontal and for the women’s section of La Falange, a party founded in 1999 whose ideological origins are in the Falange Española de las JONS, the party that upheld José Antonio’s political legacy as the voice of radical nationalism during the Franco years.

However there were very different reactionary elements in and around Franco’s government who took an implicitly anti-German stance.

Falangists were undermined by an extraordinary conspiracy masterminded by British intelligence via an international gangster of Majorcan Jewish origin – Juan March.

In Issue 58 of H&D, published in 2014, our assistant editor Peter Rushton wrote a detailed article about this operation – codenamed Goldeneye – in which the “Cavalry of St George” – massive quantities of gold – were deployed to keep Spain out of the Second World War.

Juan March, Jewish-Majorcan gangster and British agent in Franco’s Spain

The strange story of Juan March was first brought to Peter Rushton’s attention almost thirty years ago by an elderly Anglo-Spanish couple who attanded reunion dinners of the Friends of Oswald Mosley in London. He was later able to document the story in extensive research at the UK National Archives.

In the 1990s Peter Rushton was one of several H&D readers who represented John Tyndall’s British National Party at annual November 20th rallies commemorating José Antonio, both in Central Madrid and at the Valle de los Caidos mausoleum.

The Valle de los Caidos, where José Antonio is buried

As part of these events Mr Rushton visited a private Division Azul museum in central Madrid, as well as the offices of Pedro Varela’s CEDADE and the Alianza por la Unidad Nacional (AUN). Since that time, the great heritage of Spanish nationalism seemed to have been repressed by leftwing Spanish governments, including the disgraceful disinterring of Gen. Franco from his tomb at the Valle de los Caidos. However the latest Madrid demonstrations and the widely publicised speech of Isabel Peralta mark the movement’s revival and the first signs of a new dawn for Spain.

In November 2021 Isabel was interviewed on one of Spain’s leading political television programmes, leading to a furious reaction from ‘anti-fascists’ and Zionist lobbyists who objected to this exceptionally intelligent and attractive ‘fascist’ being given a nationwide media platform.

H&D will report further during the coming months on developments in the case of Isabel Peralta and her fight for real history.

Successful Pan-Nationalist Day of Action in Leeds

The Holiday Inn at Garforth, Yorkshire

On Saturday 18th September a joint nationalist day of action was held in Yorkshire’s biggest city – Leeds –  with activists from both the British Movement and Patriotic Alternative, holding a number of flash demonstrations against the flood of immigrants – mainly young male so-called asylum seekers and refugees into the city.

A number of big hotels in Leeds have simply closed their doors to the great British public, and given themselves completely over to economic migrants. Then news reached the local BM branch, that a number of other hotels in the city had been “commandeered” by the Home Office for exclusive use by Afghans (as has happened in other cities all over England).

The hotels in Leeds included the Holiday Inn at Garforth; the Gateway Hotel in Micklefield and the Mercury Hotel in Bramham. The Holiday Inn, has now cancelled all “normal” bookings until December 9th, in the hope that the local council will have rehoused the migrants by then, so they can re-open for the lucrative pre Christmas trade.

This was the second successful day of action organised by Leeds BM at very short notice – the first on August 7th, was reported in the “Movement News” pages of H&D #104 (September-October 2021) which was published earlier this month. The day included leafleting and noisy flash demonstrations outside a couple of the hotels mentioned above, and short speeches by BM and PA representatives.

Congratulations to everybody (including a number of H&D subscribers) who attended the pan-nationalist day of action in Leeds. It is hoped that more such demonstrations will now take place in other parts of the country.

Two very different wings of the anti-Islam movement

Anne-Marie Waters and ‘Tommy Robinson’ have several times endorsed each other’s campaigns, with mixed results.

This week saw bad results in court and at the ballot box for two very different wings of the anti-Islamist movement.

Stephen Yaxley-Lennon – better known under his alias ‘Tommy Robinson’ – is a chancer and petty criminal who has made a good living out of the anti-Islam movement (and an even better living from certain sections of international Zionism).

‘Tommy’ is regarded as the founder (and certainly the best known face) of the English Defence League (EDL) an avowedly ‘anti-racist’, fanatically pro-Israel, and militantly anti-Islam alliance of football hooligan gangs that briefly flourished a few years ago before breaking up into competing factions.

Since the EDL’s decline, ‘Tommy’ has fancied himself as a journalist but has continued to be mainly a self-publicist, and had a short disastrous venture into electoral politics when he contested the North West England region at the 2019 European Parliamentary elections, finishing eighth with just 2.2%.

Perhaps because of his public devotion to the Israeli cause, the mainstream media gave ‘Tommy’ soft treatment for many years, which perhaps encouraged this ageing adolescent thug (now 38) to believe he could get away with anything.

Despite his public poses, ‘Tommy’ doesn’t care a damn about the victims of (for example) ‘grooming gangs’: in order to win publicity for himself he risked derailing a trial of two such cases in Canterbury (2017) and Huddersfield (2018).

And now ‘Tommy’ has lost a libel case after he made a series of what turned out to be unsubtantiated allegations against a Syrian-born schoolboy. ‘Tommy’ has been ordered to pay £100,000 in damages and also faces a costs bill that could easily run to £500,000. Since he claims to be bankrupt (despite the vast sums he has milked from the movement), ‘Tommy’ hopes to tear up the bill and carry on regardless, but might face serious questions as to where all the donors’ money has gone.

Yesterday’s judgment ruthlessly punctures ‘Tommy”s journalistic pretensions:
“This judgment – but more importantly – the award of damages will mark clearly that the Defendant has failed to demonstrate the truth of his allegations. The Defendant took on the burden of proving his allegations to be true. He has failed. In reality, and for the reasons I have explained, his evidence fell woefully short.”

Though she has several times eagerly accepted endorsements from ‘Tommy’, and endorsed his campaigns in return, Anne Marie Waters is a very different character and the For Britain Movement she leads is very different from the EDL.

Though we might disagree with much of Ms Waters’ ideology and sometimes doubt her political choices, no one can doubt that she is a genuine, committed, and often courageous campaigner. After she broke away from UKIP to form the For Britain Movement, she bravely accepted numerous former BNP activists as members, candidates and party officials – notably the former BNP and English Democrat electoral strategist Eddy Butler, still best known for his ‘Rights for Whites’ campaigns that won the BNP their first councillor, Derek Beackon in the East End’s Isle of Dogs in 1993.

Mr Butler’s colleague – H&D subscriber and former BNP mayoral candidate Julian Leppert – is presently the only elected councillor for Ms Waters’ party, and one of very few racial nationalist councillors of any stripe anywhere in the UK in 2021 (though his party leader is very much not a racial nationalist!).

By coincidence, on the very same day that ‘Tommy Robinson’ lost his libel case, two For Britain candidates were heavily defeated in local council by-elections. Both candidates are longstanding racial nationalists of high calibre and both showed courage and commitment in putting themselves forward as candidates, at a time when our movement’s electoral fortunes are at a low ebb.

There was no reason to think that either of the wards was especially good territory for a pro-White campaign, and the nationwide political context remains one in which most racially conscious Whites tend to favour Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party, despite its recent loss of support among the socially liberal middle classes.

(Notably, the vast majority of potential voters for our types of candidate/party remain supportive of the government’s policies for dealing with the Covid pandemic: there is little or no electoral backing for the Covid-sceptic or anti-vaccination stances favoured by significant numbers of movement activists, but ignored or opposed by the vast majority of voters.)

FBM candidates Dave Haslett (above) and Gary Bergin (below)

So it was no surprise to see very modest votes for the two For Britain candidates: 26 votes (1.2%) for Gary Bergin in Liscard ward, Wirral; and 37 votes (1.6%) for Dave Haslett in Humberstone & Hamilton ward, Leicester.

Readers should note that in the Leicester ward a candidate for Reform UK (the renamed Brexit Party led by Nigel Farage’s close ally Richard Tice) also polled just 37 votes (1.6%).

There appears to be no magic recipe for electoral success within the space to the ‘right’ of the Conservative Party. Those who are looking towards some form of new racial nationalist alliance have serious thinking to do – at one time it seemed that civic nationalism with an anti-Islamist, pro-Zionist edge was the way forward, at least for those prepared to swallow their ideological objections in the interest of electoral ‘strategy’. That argument no longer holds water.

‘Anti-fascist’ thug accused of ‘inciting’ attack on scientist

Lee Hurst – violent anti-fascist turned “proud Covidiot”

Comedian Lee Hurst has been reported to the police following what Prime Minister Boris Johnson described as “despicable harassment” of the government’s chief medical officer, Chris Whitty.

In recent years Hurst has been portrayed by the mainstream media as ‘right-wing’ after apparent support for EDL founder ‘Tommy Robinson’ and hostility to climate campaigner Greta Thunberg.

However H&D can reveal that Hurst was an ‘anti-fascist’ street activist involved with the ultra-violent Red Action, notorious for its brutal attacks on the BNP and other nationalist groups in the 1980s and 1990s.

On 21st April 1990 for example, Hurst took part in a Red Action attack on BNP members attending an election meeting at Weaver’s Field School, Bethnal Green – one of that era’s most notorious acts of ‘anti-fascist’ violence.

Finding himself among more ‘respectable’ left-wing protesters, Hurst climbed over a fence to join the hardcore Red Action thugs who were attacking BNP members (including pensioners) and the police.

Police on the day had foolishly or deliberately insisted on dividing the BNP members (who were on their way to a perfectly peaceful and lawful election meeting) into small groups, making them easier to attack. The party newspaper British Nationalist reported:

“The Left did exactly as anticipated: they made several attacks in sectors where they were able to pick on the BNP in tiny numbers. A number of BNP supporters suffered injuries, one of them an elderly pensioner. Another received a hairline fracture of the skull and had to be taken to hospital. And this was not all. In some cases where BNP men defended themselves vigorously against the left, despite being outnumbered, they [the BNP] were arrested for ‘breaches of the peace’.”

Two Red Action terrorists – including its London leader Patrick Hayes – were later jailed for carrying out the 1993 bombing of Harrods on behalf of the IRA.

Meanwhile Lee Hurst went on to find fame as a television comedian, and now notoriety for his Twitter campaign against Prof. Chris Whitty. After demonstrators picketed Whitty’s home and he was confronted while walking through a park, Hurst tweeted: “What has happened to Chris Whitty is not enough.”

Former England rugby international Brian Moore was among many to condemn Hurst for his ‘cowardly’ attack – pointing out that when the scientist was just 17 his father was murdered by a terrorist gunman in Athens (having apparently been mistaken for an MI6 officer from whom he bought his car).

While there is a wide range of views among H&D readers about the Covid pandemic and government policies, we can surely all agree that it would be both foolish and wicked to fall in with agents provocateurs who seek to intimidate scientists in their homes. Neither do we want anything to do with evil ‘anti-fascist’ thugs like Lee Hurst. We haven’t forgotten or forgiven.

Faction of French nationalists carries out ‘anti-fascist’ attack in Paris

A reactionary faction of ‘traditionalist’ French nationalists carried out a disgraceful ‘anti-nazi’ attack against the 55-year-old French nationalist and revisionist Yvan Benedetti at the ‘Joan of Arc’ commemoration in Paris on May 9th.

This monarchist faction is a breakaway from the long-established traditionalist movement Action Française and was acting entirely without the support of the official Action Française leadership.

As can be seen in the videos on this page, the mob heavily outnumbered M. Benedetti and viciously punched and kicked him, but their victim bravely refused to run away. M. Benedetti is a leading figure in the radical French Nationalist Party (PNF) and was formerly a leader of the banned Oeuvre Française. He has been prosecuted several times and is a prominent ally of the author Hervé Ryssen, who was jailed last year for questioning the official version of ‘Holocaust’ history.

While attacking M. Benedetti, the mob can be heard chanting ‘anti-nazi’ and monarchist slogans. To his credit M. Benedetti regrouped with some comrades and returned to the scene of the attack so as to lay a wreath and deliver his speech, paying tribute to his old comrade Pierre Sidos, the Oeuvre Française founder who died last September aged 93.

Do the ‘traditionalist’ cowards who attacked M. Benedetti genuinely believe that ‘nazis’ are responsible for the state of 21st century France? Have they not perceived that the defeat of ‘nazism’ in 1945 also signalled the slow death of ‘traditional’ Europe? Can they point to a single monarchical figure since 1945 who has lifted a finger to defend our peoples, our race, and our traditions?

There is of course a long history throughout the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries of European royal families and their hangers-on being exploited (whether via ignorance or financial greed) to serve the interests of Europe’s enemies.

These range from the Spanish-Jewish gangster Juan March, who bribed Spanish generals and royalty as part of a high-level conspiracy to ensure Franco’s Spain didn’t ally with Germany and Italy during the Second World War; via the Anglo-Soviet exploitation of decadent royalist circles in Germany and Austria in that same period; to the boundless corruption in recent decades of Spanish King Juan Carlos and his fellow ‘royal’ scum in Saudi Arabia.

In France there has been an unparalleled tradition of serious revisionist scholarship and pro-White cadres within the academic community.

However there have also been persistent efforts to subvert nationalist movements in the interests of international Zionism. These appear to have succeeded in recent years with the success of such factions in dominating the inner circles of Marine Le Pen’s Rassemblement National, from whose ranks M. Benedetti was expelled for ‘anti-Zionism’, though even the most reactionary RN factions have never stooped so low as to launch physical attacks on comrades from other traditions at the Joan of Arc commemoration, which has usually been seen as a cross-party, cross-factional event.

Pierre Ceyrac, Mossad agent inside the French National Front

Mme Le Pen’s father Jean-Marie Le Pen and his Front National, the RN’s predecessor, were targeted for infiltration by the Israeli intelligence service Mossad during the 1980s. H&D has known for decades that Pierre Ceyrac, one of Le Pen’s leading officials, an MP and MEP for the FN, and a member of the ‘Moonie’ cult, was the principal tool of Mossad in its efforts to take over the FN. It seems that the Mossad plan suffered a setback in the autumn of 1987 when Jean-Marie Le Pen instead turned towards a form of historical revisionism (though he never fully committed himself in this direction).

The attack on Yvan Benedetti is the latest and most serious stage in this effort to suborn our movement.

While there will always be personal differences, policy differences, and differences of strategic emphasis within our movement, it should be clear that racial nationalists across Europe – including ourselves at H&D – stand with Yvan Benedetti against this brutal, disgraceful, and dishonourable attack by thugs who should now be viewed in the same light as the worst of ‘antifa’.

Public inquiry reveals police infiltration of 1970s National Front

Four of the young radicals who sought to take over the NF in the early 1980s: (left to right) Joe Pearce, Richard Lawson, Nick Griffin, and Steve Brady. Two of this group were involved in an earlier faction that was spied on by undercover policeman ‘Peter Collins’ who infiltrated both the NF and the Workers Revolutionary Party

Documents released this morning as part of a public inquiry into undercover policing reveal that an officer codenamed ‘Peter Collins’ infiltrated the National Front during 1975 and 1976.

Strangely this infiltration occurred not on the orders of his police superiors, but as an indirect consequence of his deployment to infiltrate a Trotskyist organisation, the Workers Revolutionary Party.

As with many far left groups, the WRP tried to latch on to any militant street activity, ranging from anti-war protests to the campaigns of vandalism launched by friends and family of armed robber George Davis.

An undercover police unit – the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS) – was created in 1968 in response to concerns about public order threats from a new generation of far left and ‘counterculture’ groups that had little or no connection to the old-style communist parties and fronts that MI5 and Special Branch had previously monitored.

The SDS recruited young police officers to work as long-term informants but about a decade ago these plans ended in scandal after it was revealed that some officers had fathered children with young women inside the groups they were infiltrating. Hence the present inquiry.

‘Peter Collins’ was infiltrated into the WRP in 1974, and a year later (by an extraordinary Chestertonian irony) the WRP themselves asked ‘Collins’ to infiltrate the NF on their behalf!

For a year or so ‘Collins’ therefore reported to his SDS handlers both on the WRP and on the NF.

H&D has today obtained copies of SDS and Special Branch documents released by the Inquiry. Unlike the rather confused Guardian reporter who tried to make sense of the story earlier today, we have specialist knowledge of the people and factions concerned, and will in due course publish an analysis of what ‘Collins’ was reporting on during 1975-76: what he thought was happening in the NF, and what was actually happening.

By 1976 the SDS allegedly gave up on infiltrating the ‘far right’, because the longer-established security agencies – Special Branch and MI5 – already had sufficient sources of information on the racial nationalist movement.

Much of this Special Branch and MI5 information would have come from Jewish anti-fascist organisations: the Searchlight intelligence organisation run by Gerry Gable and Harry Bidney that had grown out of the violent 62 Group, and the more ‘establishment’ intelligence arm of the Board of Deputies of British Jews.

‘Peter Collins’ reported to the SDS on aspects of the 1975-6 split within the NF that spawned the National Party, and on the objectives of a small group of NF radicals who sought to use the NP split as part of a longer-term strategy for their own takeover of the movement on the back of a temporary alliance with conservative elements.
