I remember a few years back this rather eccentric far right winger (IIRC she was called Lady Birdwood - found her on Wiki, seems a right charmer https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Bird ... s_Birdwood) who published some pretty poisonous stuff and ended up in court for it.

It seemed pretty clear that she wanted to be sent down as it would make her seem like a martyr. I suppose it plays into the right wing sense of victimhood.

Very similar to Yaxley-Lennon at the moment.

Army investigates Tommy Robinson photo with soldiers
Responding to news of the investigation, Mr Robinson said in a video post that he had met the soldiers "by chance" and they should not be "left hung out to dry" for having their photo taken with him.
Wrong.

The Tommy Robinson photos show how far right the British army is
He does have a point. During their lifetimes, the army has only ever fought people the BNP etc despise.

Am reminded what a proper soldier said at the start of the Iraq War about an Islamic people and not some ignorant military fetishist! Sadly the outcome was calamitous but at least the specific message here was honourable

"We go to Iraq to liberate not to conquer. We will not fly our flags in their country. We are entering Iraq to free a people and the only flag which will be flown in that ancient land is their own. Show respect for them.
There are some who are alive at this moment who will not be alive shortly. Those who do not wish to go on that journey, we will not send. As for the others I expect you to rock their world. Wipe them out if that is what they choose. But if you are ferocious in battle remember to be magnanimous in victory.

Iraq is steeped in history. It is the site of the Garden of Eden, of the Great Flood and the birthplace of Abraham. Tread lightly there. You will see things that no man could pay to see and you will have to go a long way to find a more decent, generous and upright people than the Iraqis. You will be embarrassed by their hospitality even though they have nothing. Don't treat them as refugees for they are in their own country. Their children will be poor, in years to come they will know that the light of liberation in their lives was brought by you"
