Download PDF for this date

Colin Jordan, leader of the British National Socialist movement, declared in court today at his trial that “I am guilty of being anti-Jewish because I love my country and hate what the Jews have done to it. “

He and three officers of his movement are on trial on charges of having violated the Public Order Act, which bans organizations seeking to achieve political goals by force, through the organization of a paramilitary force called “Spearhead. “

Earlier, Mervyn Griffith-Jones, the prosecutor, quoted from “Spearhead” documents to the effect that “The Spearhead man steps forward and marches in the spirit of the stormtroopers of the National Socialist revolution in Germany.” He asked Jordan: “Is that your purpose?” and the neo-Nazi replied, “that is correct. “
