  1. As far as I’m aware National Action (unlike UDA, UVF etc.) did not have any kind of membership, i.e. you did not fill in a form, pay x amount of quids and get a membership card etc. So how could they have any members, and how could those arrested be part of a membership based organisation? We live in interesting time!

  2. Mark, that was exactly my question. As far as I understood it National Action consisted of no more than a a group of colleagues who combined from time to time for a series of street demonstrations. Having encountered them on about three occasions I asked various leading lights in vain as to what their ultimate aims were. Since the supposed ban, as there has been no overt sign of their continued existence, it’s even more of a puzzle to know how the police can justify any arrests.
    Two points deserve further comment, Firstly, despite all the hot air from the Home Secretary, Mrs. Rudd, and the politicised police authorities it can’t in itself be a crime to be an “extremist” any more than it can be a crime to be a “moderate” simply because such words have no solid basis in law. Secondly, why has Mrs. Rudd picked on National Action which, as an organisation, never knowingly threatened anyone personally whilst completely ignoring the criminal and bullying antics of Antifa? Could it be that Antifa serves the Establishment purpose whilst National Action, when it existed, despite any possible criticisms we may have had of it, was firmly on the side of the British people.

  3. I suppose from an establishment view, it proves that the “Right wing” are as much of a threat as the jihadists are but do normal people believe that?

  4. Surely people who had at one time or another been involved with NA must have anticipated this kind of action, they were / are a soft target. It amazes me that some patriots never think the state is going to target them! The Government are creating this fantasy that there is a terrorist threat from the ‘far-right’, which everyone knows is rubbish, however, to try to give this nonsense some substance they are trying desperately to convince the mug in the street, with more than a little help from the corrupt media, that there is some truth in what they say..

  5. It is gratifying that the authorities have taken resolute action to arrest those who pose absolutely no threat to national security, and in the process expending valuable time and resources needed elsewhere. Meanwhile known Islamists walk the streets and preach sedition with total impunity.

    It would be curious to ascertain how many bombings, stabbings and deaths caused by vehicles have been committed by the “Far-right”? Meanwhile we are all assured of Islam’s essentially peaceful nature. It is pleasing that we may criticise Christianity with impunity but must not say anything negative regarding Islam.

    We live in strange times!

  6. Interesting times indeed!Many of these ‘charges’ relate to funding terrorism.It is my understanding that we are ALL funding terrorism through payments made to ‘actual’ terrorists?
    I note that there are a number of articles on said subject in the MSM.

  7. “A 22-year-old man from Lancashire has been produced from prison for police interview on suspicion of Preparation Of A Terrorist Act (s5 TACT 2006) and Membership Of A Proscribed Organisation (s11 TACT 2006)”

    Wow! Preparing a terrorist attack WHILE in prison?? & membership of an organisation he was kicked out of?? The guy is some sort of magician!

    The Independent says: Detective Chief Superintendent Martin Snowden, head of the North East Counter Terrorism Unit, said: “Today’s arrests are part of coordinated action by the national counter-terrorism network and UK policing. Those who promote extreme right-wing views are looking to divide our communities and spread hatred. This will not be tolerated and those who do so must be brought to justice.”

    So this has nothing to do with terrorism at all, but everything to do with ‘extreme right-wing views’. Let it be pointed out it was not ‘extreme right-wing views’ that flooded our nation with millions of immigrants, who can never be assimilated, and it was THIS that has had such a corrosive effect on our society, divided our communities and spread hatred. On the contrary if those with extreme-right views had not been ignored or silenced this mess into which our civilization is fast descending would never have occurred in the first place. ‘The extreme-right’ has been against mass immigration and the policy of white genocide from day one.

    Pursuing a policy in furtherance of genocide, yes, even white genocide, is illegal under international law, as is condoning it, and importantly not speaking out against it. So is persecuting and imprisoning those who do have the guts to speak out against it. Liberal elite take note.

  8. From the 2017 State-Speak dictionary (1st Ed):

    Terrorism (noun): “Any thought, deed or action (including adhering to the democratic process to facilitate such) that is in apposition to the criminal, corrupt, degenerate consensus and status quo.”

    Like “racism”, “terrorism” is now a meaningless catch-all term.

    We are all “terrorists” now…

  9. Two more proscriptions are being introduced tomorrow.
    According to the BBC

    “By extending the proscription of National Action, we are halting the spread of a poisonous ideology and stopping its membership from growing – protecting those who could be at risk of radicalisation,” Ms Rudd said.
    The move was welcomed by the head of UK counter-terrorism policing, Mark Rowley, who said it would help “disrupt and tackle the growing threat from the extreme right-wing”.

    This shows
    1. They no longer pretend that this legislation is to protect the public from violence.
    2. They admit to the growth of nationalism.
    3 They aren’t worried about the growth of left-wing violence.

  10. The Soviet-style crackdown has arrived, just as we knew it would. Instead of a GULag death sentence or a bullet below the rear of the skull, these fellows will be rendered unemployable for the rest of their lives.

  11. The appalling thing about this decision is that it is entirely arbitrary, against which there is no redress. It means Rudd can ban any organisation simply by labelling it as “terrorist”. No evidence or justification is required – just the whimsical say-so of the Home Secretary will suffice.

    REAL terrorists plant bombs, carrying out shootings and kidnappings – and drive juggernaut lorries into crowds of people. NA & its offshoots has done none of these things – or even been accused of. Its only crime was to think unthinkable thoughts.

    There’s a chilling parallel between the tactics used by Rudd and those of the Left: The typical Marxist tactic is to label anyone who does not share their views as “Nazi” or “Fascist”. No further argument is required. That’s enough to demonise and dehumanise opponents and justify acts of criminal violence to silence them. Rudd may be a Tory but her mindset and her tactics betray a remarkable similarity to those of Cultural Marxism.

  12. Monstrous yes. But the IRA didn’t give out membership cards either. Not comparing the two, just saying.
    .
    I assume that preparation of a terrorist act was preparing to send out a tweet.
    .
    I also assume that possession of terrorist material was possession of a NA flag or a couple of NA stickers. Because they’d have said so otherwise.
    .
    I agree with Michael. Since the ban there hasn’t been a whisper, so this comes as some surprise.
    .
    And while the state will be pleased that this repression will scare off some, for the ones that it does not they will be turned into hard men and the state may come to regret its actions.

  13. National Socialism certainly scares the corrupt establishment!

    These totalitarian tactics by the government will only awaken more people to the lie we live in a freedom-loving ‘democracy’!

    Outrageous, you couldn’t make it up the country that has a statue of the terrorist Mandela arrests young menn for having thoughts contrary to the establishment!

    Everyone no matter what your political persuasion including the Far-Left should be concerned at this attack on freedom because it will certainly be you next if you criticise our enslavers!
