‘Mo­bilise’ to stop the right

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News -

THE threat posed by the far-right is now at its worst in al­most 40 years, John McDonnell warned.

He said peo­ple had to “mo­bilise at every level” and stand up to the rise of pop­ulist fig­ures such as Tommy Robin­son and Nigel Farage. He warned: “The ON RISE prob­lem with Farage and the Tommy Robin­son el­e­ment is that it’s go­ing to ex­tremes, maybe more than we’ve seen for three or four decades.

“There’s a risk of the far-right and the fas­cists get­ting a toe­hold in Bri­tish pol­i­tics.

“I dealt with the BNP and Na­tional Front in my com­mu­nity and I know what their threat is. We must halt it.”
