A Blue Eyed Caucasian

So now we know that “the first Brits were black” (or so say some headlines). No doubt we have all seen the reports of the DNA analysis of “Cheddar Man” and the reconstruction of his appearance proving, with a three to one degree of probability, that he was dark skinned. The glee of the usual suspects does not need to be imagined with quotes such as “the multi-racial roots of the first Briton” and “we…

Mark Collett – 2018 Jonathan Bowden Oratory Prize Nominee

We are pleased to announce that the second nominee for the 2018 Jonathan Bowden Oratory Prize is another leading personality within British nationalism — at one time the youth leader and head of publicity for the British National Party — now an author and regular podcaster and speaker at high profile nationalist events, Mark Collett. Mark has been nominated for the excellent speech he made at last year’s John Tyndall Memorial Meeting and  what was probably…

Cheddar Man – ‘Whiteness’, a Matter of Race, Not a Matter of Colour!

The mass media have over the past week or so, been celebrating the apparent ‘discovery’ that the ‘first modern Briton’, had blue eyes and “dark skin”, and not simply, ‘dark skin’, but “dark to black” skin colour, such that “if he was alive today he would be regarded as black’. This allegedly ‘ground-breaking’ revelation comes as a result of the DNA analysis of the skeleton of ‘Cheddar Man’, the largely complete skeleton of a man…

Jez Turner – 2018 Jonathan Bowden Oratory Prize Nominee

The Passion and Political Crucifixion of Mrs May

As Christmas draws near many among us who are Christians turn our thoughts to the birth of Christ, the story of the Nativity and beyond to Easter next year and the Passion, the story of the ordeal that Christ endured at the hands of the Romans, ending in his crucifixion on Mount Calvary, and it is this second story that has particular symbolism for we British at this time as we witness a passion play…

In Memoriam – Stephen Howard Osborne (1951-2017)

It is with great sadness that I announce the unexpected death of one of our longest serving members, and one of my dearest friends, Stephen Osborne, who was born, lived most of his life and died in his beloved Northamptonshire, a county for which, and for whose people, he had an  immense and undying affection. Steve was a traditionalist with a great love of history and culture. He studied the architecture, the literature and the language of old England…

Exposing the Exposers #1

A number of people have expressed disquiet during the last year over the proliferation of undercover investigations and so-called exposés of what is euphemistically referred to as ‘the far right’ by the police, by the mass media and by malign NGOs such as Hope-Not-Hate, and it is perhaps appropriate for us to examine in detail the kind of people, and the organisations that are driving a desperate campaign to demonise and vilify honest patriotic groups and…

Max Musson – Honoured to accept Freedom of Dublin Award!

I heard last night that Bob Geldof, the obnoxious, aging, rock music has-been, has announce he is returning his Freedom of Dublin Award on the grounds that the same honour was awarded to the Burmese leader, Aung San Suu Kyi. I’m not really bothered by the internal politics of a far-eastern state, but apparently, old Bob, now only famous for his dishevelled appearance, has got his ‘knickers’ in a right ‘twist’ that any national leader should have the common sense to…
