The long years of fas­cism

The Guardian - Review - - Review -

It is sadly un­true, as Pa­trick McGrath claims, that in 1949 “the fas­cist move­ment in Bri­tain was ef­fec­tively fin­ished” (Point of view, 9 Septem­ber). In 1948 Mosley launched the Union Move­ment and con­tin­ued to draw large crowds for an­other 18 years. It was not un­til 1966 that Mosley made his last par­lia­men­tary pitch, for Shored­itch and Fins­bury, when he lost his de­posit. He gave up lead­er­ship of the UM, bring­ing about its ef­fec­tive end.
