The neo-Nazi founder of the far-right British National Party died while awaiting trial on racial hatred charges. John Tyndall, 71, a long time member of the National Front who established the BNP in 1982, was a virulent anti-Semite who once claimed “Mein Kampf is my bible.” He served three jail sentences for race-hate offenses, including publishing attacks on Jews, Muslims and blacks, and was to appear in court this week to face further charges after he was secretly filmed making racist comments.
