Nazi National Action supporter accused of murder threat on MP

As part of a police investigation into the Nazi group, National Action, a man has been charged with encouragement to commit murder. (Above are some of the group after facing successful,  mass opposition in Liverpool in 2015).


Christopher Lythgoe, from the North West, is understood to be questioned over such threats made to Labour MP, Rosie Cooper.


He is one of six people charged with being members of the banned group. Others being charged are Garron Helm, 24, of Seaforth, Merseyside, Matthew Hankinson, 23, of Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside Andrew Clarke, 33, of Warrington and Michael Trubini, 35, of Warrington.


A 22-year-old man, from Lancashire,  has also been charged with the intention of committing acts of terrorism and “threats to kill”.


Many understand the threats to kill charge is also in connection to Ms Cooper.


All are set to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday.


In December, last year, this vile, if small sect, were banned from the UK. They have tried to circumvent this by appearing in other guises, eg in Scotland, as Scottish Dawn.


Ms Cooper said: “I would like to thank everyone involved in this case, especially the counter-terrorism police, for keeping me, my staff and the public safe.


“There remains an ongoing criminal investigation so it would not be appropriate for me to comment further.”

                                               Ugly reality behind National Action

National Action have posted a series of graphic videos on You Tube, eg with sick images of members seig heiling at Buchenwald concentration camp. However, their acts only served to intensify anti fascists work against them. They looked to recruit on student campuses, albeit in a clandestine manner, especially in the North West. Success was extremely limited though.


   Their short history is littered with anti Semitic abuse and attempts to intimidate many who oppose them. In 2014, after tweeting a series of anti Semitic messages at Luciana Berger MP, one NA member, Garron Helm, received a prison sentence. National Action members were also believed to be on the Nazi riot in Dover, in January, 2016.


Zack Davies, a NA supporter was jailed for life, after nearly killing an Asian dentist in a Welsh supermarket, in 2015. NA tried, unconvincingly, to distance themselves from Davies.


After the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox, by a fascist, in June 2016, National Action endorsed her killing. The group posted a message, which read: “Our thoughts go out to Thomas Mair #Britain-First #JoCoxMP’


In London and Wales, only this year, NA members were on militaristic, training camps, ran by ex BNP organiser, Larry Nunn,


                                                 National Action’s Nazi Links


Nunn aka Max Musson is linked with fascists here and abroad, and is believed to be behind the funding of several fascist operations in recent years. He led open Nazis at the Greek Embassy, in support of the Greek Golden Dawn, Nazi organisation, in 2014.


NA linked up, on failed demonstrations, (again, in Liverpool, particularly) with Polish Nazis from the NOP party (the National Rebirth of Poland). In awe of the Polish fascists, NA members also co operated with them in Manchester, especially.


Last December, announcing the move to ban National Action, Home Secretary Amber Rudd described the group as a”racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic organisation”. She said: “National Action is an organisation which stirs up hatred, glorifies violence and promotes a vile ideology”. It was viewed as being ‘concerned in terrorism’. 


NA members, operating under other names have been thought to be operating from a warehouse in Warrington, recently. Their vile politics mean they have not recruited beyond the fascist fringes and remain marginal. However,  today shows the kind of person attracted to National Action and their modus operandi.

In the light of this news, anti fascists must remain vigilant. Many speakers reiterated such a point at the recent, Stand Up To Racism Conference. Britain is one of the few places in Europe where the far right remain fragmented and have increasingly resorted to terror tactics. UAF and allies are committed to opposing fascists who will try and grow off anti Islam and anti Semitic hatred, embodied by the likes of National Action.
