Police raids on two houses in Burnley on 28 September uncovered a rocket launcher and the largest quantity of chemical explosives ever found in any police operation in the UK.

Yesterday, a man was charged, not under the Terrorism Act but under the Explosive Substances Act 1883. What did they think he was going to do with them? Make fireworks?

Here’s another weird thing about the case: one would have thought that the seizure of “the largest quantity of chemical explosives ever” would have merited mega publicity. It has not. I have been unable to find any significant main-stream, national media coverage of these events. How can this be? I’ll tell you.

The simple fact of the matter is that the two men arrested and charged are not Muslim “terrorists” but supporters of the Nazi British National Party (BNP); indeed, one of them, 49 year old Robert Cottage, stood as a BNP candidate in the last local elections.

Is the Home Office planning triumphant press conferences as I write? Will Home Secretary John Reid vociferously condemn these “Anglofascist fanatics” any time soon? Will white people become the targets of stop and search and additional security checks at subway stations and airports?

Yeah, right.
