SW London National Front organiser Tony Martin took to the airwaves this week to defend his best mate, and infamous Nazi saluter, Chris Hurst.
The candidate for Croham ward in Croydon appeared on a White Power radio channel, The White Network, to do an utterly boring interview. He took the opportunity to defend Chris for his fascist salute at a Neo-Nazi concert in Hungary – and accuse antifascists of being “hammer and sickle-waving communists”, in typical paranoid conspiracy theorist-style.
Tony’s defence of people doing Hitler salutes comes as he has had to admit that he will not be able to stand as a National Front candidate, after a faction fight split the Nazi party in half and Tony’s enemies walked off with the legal rights to the name.
Instead he’ll have to run as an independent – after having already spent months and months going round the ward on his own trying to get a NF leaflet drawn with coloured pencils through every door.
