Two Fascists were fined in Old Street Police Court today for sticking labels bearing the word, “Jew,”on automobiles. In imposing sentence, Magistrate Metcalfe referred to the membership of the Blackshirt organization and addressed one of the defendants:

“You are a thief and a loafer. I can say nothing worse. It must be a horrible movement if it has a man of your character hanging on to its fringe.”
