BRITISH MOVEMENT REFLECTIONS

2019 marks 51 years since in 1968 I added my name to the then microscopic membership list of Colin Jordan’s British Movement. I had little idea of the great times, amazing experiences, comradeships formed and challenges we would face. But, I hoped for them and was never left disappointed. What followed was a white knuckle ride, it still is and not a moment regretted, not even whilst I was in Her Majesty’s prison.
Of course, there was no George Soros or government funding for us ~ and to be honest we had no well-heeled suitors. Our Movement was working class but also the unemployed class. However, in the spirit of real socialism we leafleted, marched, fought in street battles in worn-out clothing. In all weathers, we pushed leaflets through doors till her fingers bore the scars. Many paid for those fliers with their dole money.
In fairness, we also earned the grudging respect of many Socialist Workers Party activists, who ignored their leadership’s warning to avoid contamination. Bill Prince, a Socialist Workers Party firebrand, pledged allegiance to me.
Funding came from the already hard-pressed; many were the fundraising events and initiatives. We travelled the country, even to Europe to Spain, Italy, and France, America to campaign, attend rallies or stay at ethnic-nationalist camps. We played hide and seek with the police in Britain and Europe. We inspected each others wounds from street fights. The good humoured camaraderie between British and European ethno-nationalists was a life experience few can have the privilege of knowing. I pity them.
Taking example from others who went before me before me I was entrepreneurial by necessity, which was understood by our supporters. I estimate that 80% of the funds necessary for wages, overheads, travel, cost of living, rents, and utilities etc. came from book sales and sales of cassette tape recordings.
We penned and published, we re-printed and published book titles which when sold helped the housekeeping budget enormously. There were no computers. We searched diligently for a printer prepared to print our fliers and stickers, we did our own artwork and typesetting with press on letters.
These were hand-printed on a second-hand Gestetner duplicator and completed by a stapler bought at office suppliers. No emails back then; our knees buckled under the weight of sacks of mail taken to the local Post Office. No bank transfers, we sent and received cheques and postal orders. Now, if payment can’t be made without moving from the laptop it isn’t made.
We all pitched in, the Leader, his wife, members, the British Movement Leader Guard sent stalwarts 200 miles up to head office in North Wales to help out. Some stayed for weeks at a time.
Many of the books we sold were purchased from conventional publishers, whose stock included useful political activism or historical titles. Many books for re-selling were purchased from American book printers. They sold and the profits helped. We lived hand-to-mouth but we lived ~ really lived and we fought and won, earned respect because we showed entrepreneurial and fighting spirit. The Star newspaper described me as ‘Britain’s most dangerous man’. I was constantly on radio and television.
Much of my time it was necessary to work conventionally but wherever I did so I earned respect from my bosses and my customer base rose significantly. Yes, an ordinary job ~ and an extraordinary career as a British seamen. The only mockers at my working class status were the left-wing self-styled ‘champions of the working class’.
Technology and the internet, which should have completed our revolution, ripped the heart out of our Movement and that of the National Front, British National Party, and others. Due to these winds of change the Movement’s sales deflated and thus becalmed lost headway.
Instead of pulling on their boots the young today pull their seats up to their laptops. Dubbed ‘keyboard commandos’ they spend hours ‘liking’ memes.
Today’s generation makes much more money than did their counterparts in the 1960s and 1970s. But transferring even a modest tithe horrifies them as much as mounting the podium at Brick Lane or Trafalgar Square. Easy and cheap travel yet they would never join the Yellow Vests in France. Given ample opportunity to help out and add to their income by selling-on popular book titles cause bewilderment. Any regrets? For the past no.
