Two leading British Nazis addressed a conference of the fascist National Rebirth of Poland (NOP) party in Silesia, last November. Entitled “The nation state in the era of globalisation”, the conference in Rybnik, southwest Poland, brought together leading Polish fascists, two professors from the University of Economics in Katowice and a number of NOP members living in the UK.
Jeremy Bedford-Turner of the London Forum spoke on “European resistance to the threat of national identity” and Kevin Layzell, a young Nazi activist who flits around the far-right scene, spoke on the theme: “Third Position – together in defence of peoples”. Layzell briefly ran the British National Party’s youth organisation despite being only a probationary member of the party, until he was expelled by Steve Squire, the London organiser, for being “not right for the BNP”.
Among the audience was Piers Mellor, an Australian Nazi living in London who took part in a Moscow-inspired anti-Ukrainian protest in March 2015 and an “anti-Jewification” demonstration in Whitehall on 4 July 2015 organised by the Nazi activist Eddy Stampton.
