Patriotic Alternative purged from Facebook and Instagram

In the latest social media crackdown on racial nationalists, Facebook and Instagram today closed accounts belonging to Patriotic Alternative and its leaders Mark Collett and Laura Towler.

They remain active on other platforms and their website remains active at www.patrioticalternative.org.uk

No reason or warning was given by Facebook or Instagram, and needless to say neither Mr Collett nor Ms Towler are charged with any criminal offence.

By coincidence a Labour councillor who was twice a Leeds City Council candidate against Mark Collett appeared in court yesterday charged with several offences including:

  • attempting to rape a girl under 16 years of age between October 4, 1981, and October 4, 1982;
  • two charges of indecent assault on a girl under the age of 14, between October 4, 1980, and October 4, 1982.

Ron Grahame was suspended from the Labour Party last month pending the outcome of his trial. Cllr Grahame was twice a Labour candidate against Mark Collett in Leeds City Council elections in 2004 and 2007.

Readers will appreciate that for legal reasons we cannot make any comment about Cllr Grahame’s trial, nor do we have the slightest knowledge of the circumstances of his alleged offences.
