John Morse (British politician)


John Morse (British politician)

John Morse was a leading figure in the British National Party under John Tyndall, serving alongside Richard Edmonds as Tyndall's closest ally in the party. [N. Copsey, "Contemporary British Fascism: The British National Party and the Quest for Legitimacy", Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2004, p. 72]

His alliance with Tyndall began when Morse supported his leadership of the National Front and continued when he was a founder of the New National Front. In the BNP Morse served as editor of the party newspaper "British Nationalist" [ [http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/static/in_depth/programmes/2001/bnp_special/roots/1979.stm BNP: Under the Skin] from bbc.co.uk] and in 1986 was jailed, along with Tyndall, for publishing material relating to racial hatred. [John Tyndall, [http://www.amren.com/934issue/934issue.html 'Prisoner of Democracy'] , "American Renaissance"] He was expelled from the BNP in 2002 and, although he was later reinstated, he is no longer involved in the party.

Away from politics Morse worked in Winchester as a bus driver and was the focus of an Anti Nazi League campaign to remove him from his job.
