      Neo-Nazi arrests: National Action suspects are in the Army



      The British far-right group was banned last year
      Four serving members of the Army have been arrested under anti-terror laws on suspicion of being members of banned neo-Nazi group National Action.

      The men are a 22-year-old from Birmingham, a 32-year-old from Powys, a 24-year-old from Ipswich and a 24-year-old from Northampton.
      All four are being held at a West Midlands police station.

      The Army confirmed the arrests, and said it had supported the police-led operation.
      An Army spokesperson added: "This is now the subject of a civilian police investigation and it would be inappropriate to comment further."
      Police said the arrests were pre-planned and intelligence-led, and there had been no threat to the public's safety.

      They said they were continuing to search several properties.
      The men are being held on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation and instigation of acts of terrorism under Section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000; namely on suspicion of being members of a proscribed organisation.

      'Broken right-wing'

      National Action, a British far-right movement, was banned last year by Home Secretary Amber Rudd.
      Being a member of - or inviting support for - a proscribed organisation is a criminal offence carrying a sentence of up to 10 years in prison.

      There are 71 such groups listed by the Home Office on its register.
      They include a range of international and national groups, of which National Action was the first far-right group to be banned in December 2016.


      The group tweeted about the killing of Jo Cox MP
      It describes itself as a "National Socialist youth organisation" and says its movement is aimed at the "broken right-wing".

      The official register says it was established in 2013 and has branches across the UK which "conduct provocative street demonstrations and stunts aimed at intimidating local communities".

      Its online material contains extremely violent imagery and language and it condones and glorifies those who have used extreme violence for political or ideological ends, the Home Office says.
      That included tweets in 2016 about the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox, who was stabbed and shot by Thomas Mair. One such tweet said there were "only 649 MPs to go".
      Ms Rudd called it "a racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic organisation".

      Worrying, very worrying, but the more we sweep any sensible dialogue about islamic terrorism etc under the carpet rather than have a grown up conversation about it the more we feed these hate groups on all sides.

      True, people are too quick to align themselves with the left/right and their ideologies forgetting that they were gifted with a magnificent brain to think for themselves without Corbyn/May telling them whats right or wrong, I do worry about the route this country is going down.

      Can imagine this will be the letter they sent Big Joe about their right to march and if they couldn't they would burn the city down.

      Also the letter that pretty much sealed their fate in Liverpool and led to them getting battered all around Lime Street and led to the Police holding the idiots in Lime Street train station's left luggage for their own safety.

      Did laugh at one who apparently was on social media who complained of being pelted with potatoes and a bottle of sunny delight
