Reform UK dances to ‘anti-fascist’ tune

It’s no wonder Nigel Farage (above left) looks glum, as he watches Reform UK leader Richard Tice cave in to the far left

Reform UK leader Richard Tice today surrendered to the demands of the far-left, ‘anti-fascist’ lobby. In doing so, he exposed his own cowardice, and his party’s lack of ideological substance.

After ‘anti-fascists’ criticised Reform UK’s parliamentary candidate for Swindon South – the historian and prolific YouTuber Beau Dade – it took only hours for the party to abandon him.

Spot the difference! Reform UK’s page for its Swindon South candidate as seen this morning (above) and this afternoon (below)

This isn’t one of those typical cases where someone’s obscure tweets or Facebook posts are dredged up to discredit them. Beau Dade was very well known for his controversial views on history and politics when he was first selected as a Reform UK candidate. Tice’s cowardice in abandoning him – at the first hint of predictable leftist criticism – is a disgrace.

The problem here is that Reform UK is a neo-Thatcherite, globalist, economic liberal party which pretends to be a nationalist party.

It does this because its leaders know that apart from a handful of wealthy donors and a phalanx of City spivs and failed spads, there is no significant audience for US-style libertarianism in the UK. The party’s core voters do not share Reform UK’s core ideology. Its leaders want London to be Singapore-on-Thames, while its voters want Britain for the British.

Farage’s parties have previously had to drop candidates for different reasons. Here is the former UKIP leader with his Manchester candidate, Rabbi Shneur Odze, who was exposed in a bizarre scandal where he posed as a Roman Catholic priest, for complicated purposes

Therefore Tice and Farage disguise their commitment to turbo-capitalism by blowing frequent dog-whistles on immigration and related socially conservative issues. Their strategy is an updated version of Thatcher’s notorious television interview in January 1978, when she pretended to share the concerns of voters about our country being “swamped” by immigration.

All of this is bound to end in tears. Reform UK’s leaders believe in globalist capitalism; most of its voters (and potential voters) believe in social nationalism. In the medium to long term, there is an obvious opportunity in British politics for a party that can combine racial nationalism with an effective socialist strategy to rebuild our crumbling society and economy.

Reform UK will never be that party.

Athens – the ruins of Europe

For millennia Athens has been seen as the birthplace of Western civilisation. Yet on her visit to the Greek capital this week, H&D‘s European correspondent Isabel Peralta found a stark contrast between this classical archetype and the Greece of today.

In the shadow of the Acropolis, today’s Athens is the capital of a state completely stripped of its identity – national, cultural and racial.

In this video (now available with English subtitles) Isabel visits both the glories of the Parthenon and the sadly contrasting disgrace of multiracial Athens.

We are all “extremists” now

The ludicrous statement to Parliament this week by Michael Gove listed the British National Socialist Movement (better known as British Movement) and Patriotic Alternative as examples of “extremist” groups to be covered by his new official definition.

However, since the purpose of this new definition is for government to restrict its engagement with and funding of such “extremist” organisations, it seems most unlikely that including BM or PA will have any practical effect. Neither organisation is known for links to government!

The biggest danger is not from this week’s statement (which in itself is pretty meaningless so far as racial nationalism is concerned), but rather from its broader implications. It is just another sign of the direction in which official policy is moving, as governments around the “democratic” world panic at the self-evident failure of the post-1945 multiracial experiment.

Submissions to Parliament in 2021 identified H&D as the main example of a “harmful extrmist” publication that had stayed within UK law

(In 2021 during the earliest parliamentary discussions of a new legal definition of “harmful extremism”, the influential pressure group ‘Hacked Off’ highlighted H&D as the prime example of “online harm” that had managed to stay within the law. We reported these developments in this article more than two years ago: Gove’s announcement can be seen as a further move along the lines that were already discernible then.)

British Movement was founded by Colin Jordan in 1968 after his earlier party – the National Socialist Movement – was wound down due to legal problems. Today’s General Secretary of BM – Stephen Frost – was one of the leaders of a group of national socialists who kept the movement alive, in association with Colin Jordan, when it was in danger of being destroyed by Michael McLaughlin.

Today BM keeps the ideological flame of national socialism burning brightly, and is involved in a wide range of social and cultural activities. The movement is especially closely involved in the racial nationalist music scene.

Patriotic Alternative was formed in 2019 and has held a series of high quality conferences, in addition to taking the lead in numerous demonstrations around the UK, especially in relation to the scandal of ‘asylum seekers’ / illegal immigrants being housed at vast expense in British hotels.

PA’s Yorkshire organiser Sam Melia was recently jailed for the ‘crime’ of distributing stickers that draw attention to the failings of the multiracial society. This outrageous conviction has become 2024’s most widely publicised case of political repression in the ‘democratic’ world.

PA leader Mark Collett has spoken at several H&D events

Gove’s announcement will remind historians of the “purge” procedure instituted by Attlee’s postwar Labour government and its “anti-subversion” cabinet committee GEN 183. This treated “fascists”, who by 1947 were a very marginal group in the UK, alongside communists.

Both sets of “extremists” were to be excluded from certain jobs, in government or sensitive industries. The “far right” then as now was used as a figleaf, so that the government couldn’t be accused of witch-hunting communists then, and Muslims now.

Michael Gove, a notorious Israel Firster, is seen here in Jerusalem meeting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in April 2021.

In a broader context, unaffected by Gove’s announcement which in itself changes nothing for nationalists, British patriots and their European allies remain targeted by an array of repressive measures, as Sam Melia, Vincent Reynouard and our own European correspondent Isabel Peralta have discovered.

We know – and we expect Michael Gove also knows (though he refuses to admit it) – who the real extremists and terrorists are. The terrorists’ best friend in Parliament – Jeremy Corbyn – has, not coincidentally, been among the most vocal advocates of persecuting “fascists”.

We are undaunted by repression. We will continue to fight back against all efforts to criminalise our ideas. We will continue to demonstrate that allegations of “inciting violence” are a travesty. We stand for civilisation against the barbarism and crookedness of Gove’s world.

“Extremism” in the defence of our race is not a crime. It is a duty.

British Democrats win town council by-election

British Democrat candidate Ken Perrin won yesterday’s by-election in the Slade Lode South ward of Chatteris Town Council in Cambridgeshire. He gained 47.5% of the vote, ahead of Labour’s Richard Hirson on 27.7% and an Independent on 24.8%.

Much of the campaign focused on local housing/planning issues, which are often ones where racial nationalist ideas come into sharp focus for ordinary voters.

As Mr Perrin pointed out in an interview with his local newspaper, developers were planning “to build on land that is actually a run-off for flood water”.

In the broader context, the British Democrats have emphasised that “there isn’t a housing crisis in this country; there’s an immigration crisis causing a housing shortage!”

Town councils, sometimes called parish councils or community councils, sometimes operate in a non-partisan manner and the wards are usually much smaller than a borough ward or a county council division.

But on housing and other planning applications they can have an important role – and as several nationalist parties including the Brit Dems have pointed out, gaining experience on a parish council can be an important step in winning back credibility for our movement.

Congratulations to Ken Perrin and his campaign team on bringing H&D readers some good news! Chatteris is best known historically as the place where Boudicca and her Iceni warriors made their last stand against the invading Romans. So it’s an appropriate place to take a political stand against our 21st century invaders!

Codename CROOK – how a leading “anti-nazi” spied for Moscow

Soviet agent Congressman Sam Dickstein (above right) with former US President Calvin Coolidge.

A new article on the Real History blog describes how one of the earliest “Holocaust” propagandists was a corrupt congressman – Sam Dickstein – who acted as a paid agent of the Soviet intelligence service NKVD (later KGB).

(H&D readers will have seen a passing reference to Dickstein’s espionage as part of a book review in Issue 118 of the magazine.)

Dickstein also sold his congressional influence as chairman of the House Immigration Committee to obtain US permanent residence visas, in return for a $1,000 bribe in each case.

During the 1930s and 1940s he was a prominent lobbyist for Jewish causes, both “anti-Nazi” and anti-British, including support for propaganda operations run by the terrorist Irgun’s representative in the USA.

At a time when “anti-fascist” lobbyists are again trying to abuse immigration laws, both to allow floods of non-European migrants and to deny European patriots – notably our European correspondent Isabel Peralta – the right to travel, it seemed the right time to tell the strange history of Soviet spy and Zionist criminal, Congressman Sam Dickstein.

H&D correspondent barred from entering London on family holiday

H&D correspondent Isabel Peralta was blocked from boarding a flight from Madrid to London early this morning, in the latest extraordinary abuse of official powers by the British government.

No reason was given, and airline staff were at a loss to explain why Isabel was refused permission to board the flight.

They merely stated that it was on the orders of the British government, and that if they disobeyed this order the airline itself would be held liable.

On this occasion Isabel’s journey to London was entirely personal, and she would not have been attending any political events whether private or public.

But it seems that those with the ‘wrong’ political views can be excluded even from family holidays, if it suits the spiteful whim of a government minister or the demands of certain ethnic lobbies.

Explanations have been sought from the Home Office, who on several grounds seem to be in breach of their own guidelines, as well as from the British Embassy in Madrid, and the Consular Section of the Spanish Embassy in London.

Further reports will follow later today, once the political and diplomatic authorities involved have replied.

Galloway victory exposes the fake left’s crisis over ‘multiracialism’

A few minutes ago the former Labour MP George Galloway won the Rochdale by-election, in a stunning exposé of Muslim voters disillusionment with Labour Party leader Sir Keir Starmer. Galloway polled 39.7% of the vote, and won a majority of 5,697, ahead of local independent David Tully, who surprised the media by taking 21.3%.

Though I reject many of Galloway’s views (especially his Putinism and his support for the terrorist IRA’s political front Sinn Fein), I welcome his election to Westminster where he will be an eloquent (if unprincipled) voice in support of Palestine, against the lavishly financed Zionist lobby that dominates all the major UK parties.

Labour thought they had chosen a perfect careerist candidate: Azhar Ali, an Asian councillor in nearby Nelson who led the Labour group on Lancashire County Council. Ali had made all the right noises to obtain promotion in Labour’s ranks – regarded as a reliable ‘moderate’ and endorsed by leading Jewish activists in Starmer’s party.

But as should have been obvious, careerism involves saying different things to different audiences. At the start of the campaign, a secretly recorded tape was leaked of Ali speaking to Asian community leaders in Accrington (less than 20 miles from Rochdale). As anyone outside Starmer’s circle of deluded wokeists might have predicted, Ali’s words to this audience were very different from when he was speaking to liberals and Jews!

The leak quickly led to Labour disowning Ali, and because he has always depended on careerist grovelling rather than principle, he completely failed to maintain any sort of campaign on his own. Ali remained on the ballot paper as Labour candidate, because the relevant deadlines had passed, and his feeble 7.7% vote came from that section of the electorate who would vote for a donkey if it had a Labour label.

The Rochdale campaign was absolutely made for George Galloway. Though he will be 70 later this year, Galloway has lost none of his ability to play populist political cards. In this case most of his pitch was to Rochdale’s Asians (who amount to around 30% of the constituency, according to the 2021 census). The Gaza issue has highlighted a broader perception among such people that they have been let down by their ‘community leaders’ in a series of cynical deals with the Labour Party. A reckoning was overdue, irrespective of the Azhar Ali fiasco.

Galloway also made a pitch to disillusioned White voters, but a large number of these opted for local independent David Tully, whose energetic campaign received little attention from mainstream journalists until ballot boxes were opened.

Mr Tully is not a racial nationalist, but his commendable campaign and focus on local concerns (including the threatened bankruptcy of Rochdale Football Club, where he is a season ticket holder) will have won him a lot of support from our type of voters.

And that brings us to the elephant in the room: the total absence of any credible nationalist party from this campaign.

The bankruptcy of “civic nationalism” was demonstrated by Reform UK choosing disgraced former Labour MP Simon Danczuk as their candidate. Mr Danczuk is seen here on holiday in Singapore with his Rwandan wife.

Reform UK, just two weeks after an excellent result in Wellingborough, suffered a well-deserved embarrassment in Rochdale after their inexplicable selection of Simon Danczuk as their candidate. Mr Danczuk is another shallow careerist who was Labour MP for Rochdale until he was disgraced after sending inappropriate sexual messages to a teenager.

Danzuk and his party leader Richard Tice tried to distract from their poor result (only 6.3% and sixth place) by whining about “racism”, “intimidation” and “anti-semitism”. Their desperation in playing the victim card merely reflected the utter bankruptcy of “civic nationalism”. Galloway himself has now revealed that a short while ago Tice asked him to be a Reform UK candidate: that’s how shallow and unprincipled Reform UK’s leader is.

In the 1990s I repeatedly experienced political violence in Rochdale, including being pelted with half-bricks by “anti-fascists” outside Rochdale Town Hall after an election count. But anyone who is serious about nationalist politics doesn’t whine about such things, they just get on with the task, however long and arduous.

Britain First raised funds from their supporters with the promise that they would fight this by-election, even after the close of nominations showed that they did not in fact have a candidate. The sad truth is that Britain First is just another con aimed at gullible nationalist donors – just like the BNP became in later years, and just like the various enterprises run by Nick Griffin.

Billy Howarth, a local campaigner against the scandal of Rochdale Pakistanis “grooming” teenage girls, stood as an independent candidate but failed to make any impact, polling only 1.7%. It needs to be recognised that there are some people like Mr Howarth who are honest and have sound instincts on some issues, but who come nowhere near the calibre required of a parliamentary election candidate or spokesman for the broader nationalist cause.

Considering the unusual circumstances, the 39.7% turnout was high – and was likely to have been especially high in Asian areas.

But many White voters will have abstained in despair. Rochdale again shows the political vacuum in the UK, especially in northern towns that have experienced the worst effects of multiracialism.

A credible challenge is long overdue – whether it comes from the British Democrats, the newly registered Homeland Party, organisations not yet registered such as Patriotic Alternative, or some united front of racial nationalists.

H&D will continue to report on a non-partisan basis, and we shall give support to any and every genuine nationalist campaign.

Is Keir Starmer prepared to write off Muslim voters?

Labour Party officials seem bewildered by the extent of “anti-semitism” in their party, following revelations last Sunday that eventually forced Sir Keir Starmer to abandon his candidate at the Rochdale parliamentary by-election.

In normal circumstances, political observers would be relentlessly examining the collapse of Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s Conservative Party, especially after their catastrophic results in yesterday’s by-elections at Wellingborough and Kingswood.

And if Starmer were being opposed only by hard-left supporters of his predecessor Jeremy Corbyn, he wouldn’t be too concerned.

Yet the reality is slowly coming home to Labour leaders that even “moderate” Muslims are disgusted by Starmer’s fanatical Zionism – and that a large part of mainstream opinion among indigenous Britons is also hostile to Israel’s never-ending brutality.

Azhar Ali was regarded as one of the most “moderate” Muslims in the Labour Party, until secret recordings were published last Sunday, in which Ali expressed implicitly “anti-semitic” conspiracy theories.

Ex-MP Graham Jones (above right) with Shadow Cabinet member Lisa Nandy and Azhar Ali. Until this week these three were among Lancashire’s leading Labour activists: now only Nandy remains.

Then another Lancashire Labour candidate – former Hyndburn MP Graham Jones – was suspended for similar anti-Israeli remarks secretly recorded at the same event.

Numerous Labour councillors, including Labour’s council leader in Burnley, had already quit the party in protest at Starmer’s craven pro-Israel policy, and this week two more quit, in the West Yorkshire borough of Kirklees, where there had already been earlier resignations and suspensions.

Several of these anti-Zionists (whether resigning on principle or suspended after being caught out expressing their private views) are indigenous Britons, though many are Muslims.

The really crucial point is that a certain block of voters (likely to be mainly Muslim) views the Gaza issue as such an important one that they could change their vote and desert Labour, even if this runs the risk of allowing Conservative candidates to win.

Very few Muslims support the Conservative Party, though this week’s strangest political story was the expulsion of the Conservative Mayor of Salisbury.

Cllr Atiqul Hoque was expelled with immediate effect, after allegations of posting “offensive” messages on WhatsApp and social media. Salisbury is an ancient cathedral city with a very White population: not the sort of place where one expects to find an Asian mayor, still less a Conservative one, still less one who posts “offensive” material online.

Four months ago Prime Minister Rishi Sunak proudly greeted the Tory Mayor of Salisbury, Atiqul Hoque. This week the Mayor was expelled from Sunak’s party for “offensive” social media posts: apparently yet another case of “anti-semitism”.

It all goes to show what a strange country the UK has become!

Mainstream politicians have combined slavish support for the Zionist state, with obedience to a multiracial and multicultural transformation of our country. The potentially incendiary consequences should have been obvious.

The main question now is whether Muslim “community leaders” allow careerism and vested interests to outweigh principle. It would not be surprising to see them mostly fall back into line with Starmer, just as they did with earlier pro-Zionist Tory leaders such as Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.

But right now, there’s still the potential for Labour to haemorrhage Muslim votes. I suspect most H&D readers would quite enjoy that spectacle!

Although as with the parallel collapse of the Conservative Party, what we really need is a coherent, united and focused racial nationalist challenge to the establishment parties.

The mystery of the disappearing candidate

On Saturday the anti-Muslim party Britain First shared a “Huge Announcement” with their members and supporters on social media, even sending out a special fundraising email.

Party chairman Ashlea Simon was to be the party’s candidate at the forthcoming Rochdale parliamentary by-election, following the death of Labour MP Sir Tony Lloyd. Her leader Paul Golding rightly pointed out that Rochdale is notorious for the “grooming” scandal, involving the abuse of young girls by men of mainly Pakistani origin.

As recently as 15th January, yet another official report documented the failure of Greater Manchester Police, social services and Rochdale Council – all of whom betrayed these girls and their families.

Golding told his followers that Ashlea Simon would be an ideal candidate who would prove “a staunch voice for the victims in the town”. He predicted there was a “strong chance” that she could defeat the established parties and be elected MP for Rochdale.

Britain First’s campaign was announced on Twitter, by email and on its website even after the official list of candidates showed that they were not in fact contesting this election. Where is the money going?

Britain First’s leader confirmed that he and other party officials were already “organising behind the scenes to get the campaign launched, including designing the banners, leaflets, placards, postal voter letters etc.”

When we read this announcement at H&D, it’s fair to say we were surprised – because the official list of candidates for this by-election had already been published the previous day, and Ms Simon was not among them.

In other words Paul Golding was soliciting donations for a non-existent campaign. Meanwhile he was sitting down with the notorious grifter ‘Tommy Robinson’ to make yet another video for his gullible followers.

We don’t know how Mr Golding intends to spend the money raised by these fundraising emails and social media posts, but one thing’s for sure. It can’t be spent on a parliamentary election campaign in Rochdale – because Britain First and Ashlea Simon are not contesting this Rochdale by-election!

Raising money for a non-existent campaign is tragic enough, but at this same Rochdale by-election Britain First’s rivals in the civic nationalist party Reform UK have dragged politics into the realms of farce.

Reform UK’s candidate in this by-election (where allegations of “grooming” are bound to become a central campaign issue) is Simon Danczuk, who was Labour MP for Rochdale from 2010 to 2017.

Mr Danczuk was suspended from the Labour Party in 2015 for sending “inappropriate” texts to a teenage girl. He shamelessly contested Rochdale as an independent in 2017 but lost his deposit with a mere 1.8% of the vote.

Reform UK’s Rochdale candidate – disgraced ex-MP Simon Danczuk – on a recent holiday in Singapore with his Rwandan bride Coco.

The ex-MP has recently married an African beauty therapist whom he met on a “business trip” to Rwanda: the happy couple plan to adopt a Rwandan baby, and doubtless if he returns to Parliament they will be able to adopt an entire houseful of happy African infants.

In other words, while the Tory government is trying (but dismally failing) to export illegal immigrants and asylum seekers to Rwanda, Reform UK’s latest parliamentary candidate is eagerly importing Rwandans to England.

You really couldn’t make it up: but this is entirely consistent with the “civic nationalism” espoused by Richard Tice, Nigel Farage and the fake patriots of Reform UK.

Rochdale voters deserve better. Whether the racial nationalist alternative comes from the British Democrats, the recently launched Homeland Party, from Patriotic Alternative (once they are registered as a political party), or from some electoral alliance between them, it has never been more obvious that the UK needs a movement prepared to defend our islands and our people.

An appalling week for British ‘justice’

Abdul Shakoor Ezedi, prime suspect still sought by the Metropolitan Police

Police are still searching for the “asylum seeker” Abdul Shakoor Ezedi, suspected of a vicious attack on a 31-year-old woman and her two young children in London on Wednesday.

As has been widely reported, Ezedi arrived in the UK illegally from Afghanistan in 2016. Almost eight years later, he (like many other similar illegal immigrants) is still here.

In Ezedi’s case this is especially extraordinary because he was convicted in 2018 for a sexual assault. His ‘asylum’ application was twice refused, but granted on the third occasion after the intervention of a priest who testified that Ezedi had converted to Christianity and would therefore be subject to ‘persecution’ in his home country.

Yet we know learn there is some doubt as to whether Ezedi is even an Afghan. Records suggest that he was born in Iran, a country where Christians are not subject to ‘persecution’.

In any case, to everyone outside the almost uniformly ‘woke’ ranks of 21st century Christian priests, it is manifestly absurd to believe that a barbarian becomes British on conversion to Christianity, or that illegal immigrants should be granted a free pass to remain in the UK simply by claiming to be Christian.

Though one might have thought that an Afghan (or Iranian) with visible injuries to the side of his face would be quite conspicuous, Ezedi seems for the moment to have melted into the background of multiracial Britain. The attack for which he is prime suspect occurred on Wednesday, and it is now Saturday, with police still searching for him.

British authorities bent over backwards to assist Ezedi, despite his having entered the country illegally and having been convicted of a sexual assault.

Contrast his case with that of the French scholar Vincent Reynouard, who by a bitter irony was this week deported from Scotland to France to face trial and almost certain imprisonment for the ‘crime’ of writing books and publishing videos about Second World War history.

While a nationwide manhunt was underway for a barbarian who hurled caustic liquid in the face of a young woman and her children, armed police were taking Vincent from his prison cell (where he has been incarcerated since November 2022 despite committing no crime under UK law) and placing the handcuffed historian onto a plane to Paris.

Vincent Reynouard was extradited from Scotland to France, guarded by armed police: whereas convicted sex offender Ezedi was allowed to remain in the UK.

200 miles south of Edinburgh – roughly halfway between Vincent’s jail cell and the London street where Ezedi’s attack took place – another political ‘criminal’ awaits sentencing.

Sam Melia, Yorkshire organiser of Patriotic Alternative, has been convicted of the ‘crime’ of producing stickers warning Britons about the consequences of the multiracial society and urging his fellow countrymen to campaign against the policies of mass immigration that we never voted for.

While Ezedi was allowed to remain in the UK as an illegal immigrant for eight years, Vincent Reynouard was jailed and extradited. While Ezedi was spared jail after conviction for a sexual assault, Sam Melia is likely to be jailed (in our alleged ‘democracy’) for producing stickers that promote a political argument.

Such is the state of justice in multiracial, woke-addled Britain. As Enoch Powell said in his famous speech on 20th April 1968: Those whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad.

Sam Melia, seen here with his wife Laura Towler and their baby daughter, faces imprisonment for the ‘crime’ of producing stickers as part of a campaign against the transformation of his country by mass immigration.
