Nazi salute man jailed after racist pub show
A RACIST who made a Nazi salute inside a packed pub has been branded a disgrace to the nation and jailed.
John Hennigan, 46, was caught on camera doing the fascist arm gesture in front of shocked drinkers at a London boozer.
And his antics put him in breach of an Asbo imposed in 2005 when a swastika was found daubed on the front door of his council house.
It was the seventh time he had flouted the order.
Hennigan claimed he had only been raising his arm to collect his change after paying for a drink, but was convicted at the Old Bailey.
Judge Nicholas Cooke QC told him: “In this crowded public house you gave a Nazi salute and spoke provocatively of Jews. The Holocaust was a crime against humanity of enormous magnitude. Behaving in the way you did was appalling.
“You spoke of black people as c**ns and n****rs. The use of such terms is grossly offensive and conjures up memories of the slave trade, again a crime against humanity of enormous magnitude.
“You are a disgrace to the values of this country.”
Hennigan, of Harlow, Essex, was sentenced to 21 months and told the judge, “no probs” as he was led away to the cells.
