This video from Britain says about itself:
The direct precursor to Rock Against Racism and today’s Love Music Hate Racism campaign was the Stars Campaign for Inter-Racial Friendship, founded in 1959 to combat the activities of the White Defence League (sic) in London’s Notting Hill. The chairman of the Stars Campaign for Inter-Racial Friendship was the musician Johnny Dankworth, and members included the gorgeous mixed-race actress and singer Cleo Laine, Tommy Steele, Lonnie Donegan and Humphrey Lyttelton, and the founder was the Anti-Fascist folk singer Karl Dallas.
Highlights of this clip include the iconic image of the black NHS nurse walking past the barricaded shop-front of the White Defence League – neatly illustrating why Britain did NOT need people like the WDL, and Cleo Laine discussing how Fascists would have to repatriate her to her birthplace in… Middlesex.
The White Defence League was founded by veteran British Nazi and posh twat Colin Jordan and bank-rolled by a noxious French aristocrat called Francoise Dior (a relative of the Nazi collaborator Christian Dior and ex-wife of Comte Robert-Henry de Caumont La Force) who Jordan married to prevent her imminent deportation as an undesirable alien. Wedding photos of Dior and Jordan mingling blood over a copy of Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” were widely published in the UK press, but Francoise Dior dumped Jordan shortly afterwards and was jailed for trying to burn down English synagogues.
The WDL failed to achieve anything and merged with another Fascist group to form the first British National Party in 1960. Jordan was jailed for founding a paramilitary group with fellow Nazi uniform creep and Adolf Hitler impersonator John Tyndall, before Tyndall and Jordan had a tiff, and Tyndall hooked-up with the … racist Martin Webster in the National Front. The NF split in 1980 and John Tyndall led a faction, originally called the New National Front, which Tyndall re-christened with the same name as the old BNP. Today Tyndall’s BNP is run by Martin Webster’s alleged former boyfriend Nick Griffin.
Colin Jordan was elected “World Führer” at a Nazi conference in 1962 but one of Jordan’s few real achievements was being punched by the future Chancellor of the Exchequer Denis Healey during a Fascist attack on a Labour Party meeting in 1965. Jordan is most “famous” however for founding a wannabe Nazi street army called the British Movement, which fell into terminal pointlessness after Jordan was arrested for stealing women’s underwear from a branch of Tesco.

Campaigners launch bid to oust fascist Euro-MP Brons
Wednesday 20 February 2013
Unions and anti-racism campaigners in Yorkshire and the Humber are mobilising to oust the region’s fascist Euro-MP.
They will be targeting Andrew Brons, who was elected British National Party (BNP) member of the European Parliament for the region in 2009.
Mr Brons scraped in with just 9.8 per cent of the vote – the lowest of the six successful candidates – while BNP leader Nick Griffin was elected for the neighbouring north-west constituency.
Since being elected they have strengthened links with other European far-right parties.
Secretary of Yorkshire and the Humber TUC Bill Adams said: “I support the campaign to defeat Brons and remove him from the European Parliament.
“His racist views and his inept brand of political activity has not represented the people of Yorkshire and the Humber in Europe. He has to go!”
Regional TUC chairman Tim Roache of the GMB union added: “We decided to target getting Brons out.
“We are well aware of the damage and devastation far-right parties are capable of.
“First we will be raising awareness among union members and then mobilising them, getting them active delivering leaflets, canvassing, knocking on doors. We will get him out.”
While Mr Brons will be the TUC’s main target, other far-right parties standing candidates will be opposed with the mobilisation, Mr Roache added.
The campaign already has the support of regional leaders of the PCS, CWU, Ucatt and Aslef unions.
His far-right political career saw him become chairman of the National Front (NF), the organisation of street-fighting thugs.
He was twice NF general election candidate in his home town Harrogate in North Yorkshire during the ’70s, each time polling just 2.3 per cent of the votes.
Mr Brons was also a lecturer at Harrogate College, which was targeted for demonstrations because of his racism and fascism. He has a conviction for using insulting words and behaviour while handing out NF leaflets in Leeds.
Later, he joined Mr Griffin’s BNP though since being elected he has quit the party, before last year helping to found the British Democratic Party.
Mr Brons’s term as a Euro-MP ends in 2014.
