British Gov’t Will Challenge Fascist Trend

Download PDF for this date

Several members of the MacDonald government were present in Albert Hall last Sunday at the meeting of the British Fascist group headed by Sir Oswald Mosley, the Morning Post, Conservative organ, revealed today.

The British government has decided, the Post declared, that Fascist propaganda in Great Britain can no longer be neglected, since this would leave the country in ignorance of the inevitable accompaniments of a Fascist regime.

More than 10,000 crowded Albert Hall to hear Mosley, a former member of the Laborite cabinet, denounce democracy in a two-hour speech and predict the imminence of a Fascist government in England.

Mosley attacked the Jews of Great Britain, saying that most of them were internationalists and unfriendly to Fascism. He warned the Jews to place the interests of England above that of “world Jewry.”
