The racist National Front, an openly fascist organisation, has announced that it will be running infamous Holocaust-denier, convicted thug and Nazi Richard Edmonds in the local government elections for Worcester Park in May 2014. Worcester Park, just on the border between Sutton and Kingston, has already seen what this means in practice – with the proposed site of a new mosque being daubed with swastikas.
Richard Edmonds wants to convince local people that he’s a legitimate politician. He’s not. He has convictions for racist attacks and he lead a violent assault of, mostly women, community campaigners in the early 1990s by forty skinhead bootboys. He has links to Nazi terrorist bombers. He’s always been a vile Nazi who uses elections to try to build a group of people around him who will be prepared to violently intimidate his political opponents.
Over the coming months, we will be exposing Richard Edmonds and his National Front mates as exactly what they are: disgusting Nazi scumbags with no place in South West London. We’re calling on every individual and every organisation that wants to get rid of this filthy organisation to get in touch with us, put their names to our statement and start getting organised to expose, isolate and destroy the National Front in our area.
