Just over 24 years ago a unity demonstration backed by the British National Party and an alliance of other patriots and opponents of terrorism almost led to the assassination of IRA sympathiser Ken Livingstone, who was then a Labour MP and later became Mayor of London.
The story is revealed in a new book Left-Right-Loyalist by Frank Portinari, former London commander for the Ulster Defence Association.
Today the Daily Star on Sunday broke the news under an “exclusive” headline: Second Northern Irish assassination plot on Ken Livingstone uncovered. Later the same story was picked up by the Mail on Sunday.
Many H&D readers will remember the anti-IRA demonstration on 30th January 1993. Hundreds of patriots blocked the path of IRA supporters from the Troops Out Movement, who intended to march from Hyde Park to Kilburn (London’s Irish republican heartland).
Frank Portinari reveals in his new book that the intention was for the Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF) to use ensuing chaos to assassinate Livingstone:
“Livingstone’s provocative support for Irish republican terrorists and their apologists made him public enemy number one. A UFF unit decided to assassinate Livingstone on the day of the march. A volunteer on a motorbike would be parked nearby to transport the gunman to a safe house.”
However huge numbers of police intervened to protect the IRA marchers and their friend Livingstone. At least 296 BNP and Loyalist demonstrators were arrested – in fact the true figure was over 400, since many were released once transported some distance from Hyde Park, and hundreds more were ordered to disperse under threat of arrest.
One leading BNP activist well known to H&D rallied a group to break through the police lines: they almost succeeded, but police just about kept control and were then reinforced. Livingstone survived and was elected Mayor of London from 2000 to 2008.
Several of our demonstrators were advised by sympathetic police officers to dispose of weapons before arriving at police stations.
Due to train delays our assistant editor was late arriving at Hyde Park. In those days before mobile phones he was surprised to see none of our comrades around, so followed the route of the IRA march into Kilburn, expecting to catch up with the counter-demonstration – not realising that all our people had been arrested or dispersed. Unfortunately he then found himself right in the heart of the IRA supporters at their rally outside the Sacred Heart church in Quex Road, Kilburn – but was then able to file a report for the BNP newspaper British Nationalist exposing the true nature of the speakers at this event, who gloated over the IRA’s murder of two British corporals.
Gerry Adams – President of Sinn Fein (the political wing of the terrorist IRA) since 1983 – sanctioned the murder of a former Sinn Fein official, according to a BBC investigation broadcast on Tuesday night.
Adams was MP for Belfast West until 2011, and for the past five years has been a member of the Irish Parliament as TD for Louth.
An IRA informant told the BBC:
“I know from my experience in the IRA that murders have to be approved by the leadership. They have to be given approval by the leadership of the IRA and the military leadership of the IRA. …Gerry Adams, he gives the final say.”
The programme referred specifically to the murder of Denis Donaldson, who for many years was a senior Sinn Fein official, latterly in charge of administration at the party offices in Stormont. Since the 1980s Donaldson had been an agent for the British security service MI5 and the Special Branch of the Royal Ulster Constabulary. He was paid to provide intelligence about terrorism and other criminal activities of Adams and his gang.
In 2005 Donaldson confessed to his 20-year role as a British agent. A few months later he was brutally murdered at his remote cottage home.
No-one has ever been convicted for the Donaldson murder. When an investigation was reopened in 2009, a splinter group called ‘Real IRA’ conveniently claimed responsibility. However the latest BBC investigation suggests this was nonsense, and that the IRA Army Council gave the orders. Gerry Adams and his close colleague Martin McGuinness (now Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland) were the key figures within the IRA leadership throughout this period.
The latest allegations will probably not disturb Adams’s many celebrity supporters, ranging from U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump to British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
On July 30th ex-servicemen and British patriots including members of many different parties and movements gathered at Trafalgar Square for a demonstration in memory of Forgotten British Heroes.
The event was held on the spot where in March 1947 Jewish terrorists exploded a bomb, at a social club for British colonial servicemen. The bomber – Robert Misrahi – escaped punishment and went on to become Professor of Ethical Philosophy at the Sorbonne in Paris, one of the world’s most prestigious universities. Misrahi is still alive and politically active. The FBHC is liaising with Scotland Yard to secure his arrest, since he not only committed the London bombing but was a leading operative of the terrorist group – the Stern Gang – who sent a letter bomb which killed Rex Farran (young brother of British war hero Roy Farran) at his family home near Wolverhampton – a murder which remains officially unsolved.
Speakers at the demonstration and at a subsequent meeting in a central London hotel included veteran British nationalists Martin Webster and Richard Edmonds; London Forum founder Jez Turner; former BNP regional organiser Julie Lake; and H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton.
Video from the event can be seen below, and further information is available from the campaign website.
Kevin Vickers, Canada’s Ambassador to Ireland, was first to react when a terrorist front group tried to disrupt last Thursday’s centenary commemoration for British forces killed in the treacherous 1916 Easter Rising.
The ceremony at Grangegorman Military Cemetery was interrupted by Brian Murphy of the Irish Republican Prisoners Welfare Association (IRPWA) – a front for the terrorist faction known as the Real IRA or (since 2012) New IRA, which also uses titles such as 32 County Sovereignty Committee. An arms cache belonging to this terror gang – including anti-personnel mines and an armour-piercing rocket – was found on May 16th in Capanagh Forest, near Larne, Co Antrim.
Ambassador Vickers did not wait for police to deal with the Fenian insult last Thursday: a wise decision as one never knows with police in the Irish Republic whether to expect law enforcement or sympathy with terrorism.
As shown in the video, Ambassador Vickers took the direct action approach! The Fenian scum on the receiving end can count themselves lucky to have got off so lightly: when another terrorist strayed onto Vickers’s patch in his previous role as Sergeant-at-Arms of the Canadian Parliament in 2014, Vickers shot him dead.
While several “New IRA” crimes have been directed at rival Fenian terror gangs, including several shootings earlier this month, there have been suggestions that a new wave of Republican terrorism might be expected soon against both Ulster and British targets. Loyal Ulstermen and Britons alike will bear in mind Ambassador Vickers’s example, and as during previous Fenian campaigns, will not wait for the courts to protect them.
One of Britain’s most notorious gangsters, who was in the vanguard of violent “anti-fascism”, is beginning an 11-year prison sentence for a series of crimes linked to his organised crime empire. Dominic Noonan (who now spells his name “Domenyk”) presided over a reign of terror in the Manchester and Salford area. He was also convicted of “attempting to pervert the course of justice” after paying the parents of a young boy so that he would not give evidence about Noonan’s alleged sexual offences.
Noonan and his late brother – gangland assassin Dessie Noonan – had close ties to Irish republican terrorists and related “anti-fascist” activity in North West England which was at its peak in the 1990s. Dessie Noonan was killed by a black drug dealer in 2005.
Dominic Noonan – a well-known homosexual – surrounded himself with a coterie of teenage boys, and organised them in an orgy of rioting across Manchester following the death of Dessie’s nephew, black gangster Mark Duggan, in a controversial shooting by London police in 2011.
Heritage and Destiny readers will be familiar with the entire Noonan saga. We are only now able to report Dominic Noonan’s prison sentence – though he was jailed in September last year – because of a contempt of court order restricting reporting until a related case had concluded. Last year Dominic Noonan came to attention after the murder of another local gang boss Paul Massey, who shortly before his death had posted allegations online against Noonan. Massey had also been on the far left, but in the last year of his life had been a UKIP supporter.
Last week Noonan received a further two year sentence for perverting the course of justice, though he was acquitted of “engaging in a sex act in front of a minor”. Last September he was given a nine-year sentence for offences including blackmail and arson.
In 2004 Dominic Noonan was jailed for 9½ years for possession of a firearm: he was released in 2010 but briefly recalled to prison in 2011 for his role in that year’s riots.
While highlighting cases of hooliganism among their opponents (less among genuine nationalists than among the Islam-obsessed EDL and allied groups) “anti-fascists” are not keen to highlight their own close connections with notorious figures in Greater Manchester organised crime. Coincidentally (or perhaps not) while the EDL gangsters and hooligans tend to support Manchester City (despite the club’s ownership by the Muslim ruling family of Abu Dhabi!), their “anti-fascist” opponents tend to be linked to the rival club Manchester United, and even produced an “anti-fascist” football fanzine, Red Attitude.

The most notorious “anti-fascist” gangsters in Greater Manchester were Salford’s Dessie Noonan, responsible for more than twenty gangland killings before his own murder in March 2005, and Manchester’s Paddy Logan, who like Noonan was involved with both Anti-Fascist Action and various Irish republican terrorist gangs before falling victim to an internal criminal feud, shot dead in his own bedroom in July 1999.
Sadly however nationalists must admit that criminality and perversion are not unknown in our own ranks. Ironically in the same week as the latest Noonan case, former BNP activist Ian Hindle was convicted of a second sexual offence in the past few years.
Ian Hindle’s first conviction for sex offences was in 2008, when he was given a three-year sentence for offences involving 14-year-old girls. Also sentenced in this 2008 case was Hindle’s fellow BNP activist Andrew Wells, who was then a well-known organised crime figure in the Blackburn area. Perhaps the most serious aspect of this case is that Wells was also involved in recruiting (among both nationalists and criminals) for a security company employed by NATO forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Newly discovered manuscripts prove the extent of the fraud perpetrated on naive liberals worldwide, in portraying Marxist terrorist Nelson Mandela as a campaigner for “democracy”. Part of the truth is revealed in a Spectator article this week by award winning South African author Rian Malan.
Mandela was a member of the central committee of the South African Communist Party, and leader of the terrorist wing of the black nationalist African National Congress, when he was imprisoned for terror offences in 1962. In 1976 fellow communist cadres smuggled out the manuscript of a revolutionary tract written in prison by Mandela. Yet this was not published immediately: the text was heavily edited by a New York journalist called Rick Stengel, before being published as a suitably anodyne and democratic autobiography, which became a worldwide best seller when published in 1994 as Long Walk to Freedom.
The legend was burnished further when Long Walk to Freedom was turned into a Hollywood blockbuster in 2013, starring Idris Elba – London-born son of African immigrants – as Mandela. Elba won a Golden Globe best actor nomination.
As Malan points out, Stengel suppressed or distorted important aspects of Mandela’s text, in addition to disguising his Marxist ideology. The world’s liberals were led to believe that Mandela had been a peaceful campaigner for black civil rights until the so-called Sharpeville Massacre in 1960, when South African police opened fire on black rioters. In fact Mandela had been plotting an armed uprising at least seven years before Sharpeville! The future Nobel Prize winner sent a fellow cadre to Communist China in 1953 to solicit weapons for the supposedly non-violent ANC.
“I was bitter and felt ever more strongly that SA whites need another Isandlwana,” wrote the peace-loving Mandela – referring to the notorious slaughter of more than 2,000 British soldiers and civilians in 1879 by a force of over 20,000 Zulu warriors.
Ghost writer Stengel – who was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford in the late 1970s and managing editor of Time magazine from 2006 to 2013 – has been Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy in President Obama’s State Department since 2013. The job involves coordinating media and propaganda efforts to promote American policy worldwide. It is not known whether presentation of Obama’s policies has involved similar deceptions to those practised by Stengel in covering up Nelson Mandela’s Marxism and terrorism.
The UKIP candidate in a council by-election has called for the introduction of internment in response to last Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris.
Harriet Yeo – who until last year was leader of the Labour group on Ashford council in Kent, and is a former chairman of the Labour Party’s National Executive Committee – commented on the French President François Hollande’s description of the attacks as an “act of war”.
The former trade union leader asked: “If we’re at war shouldn’t we have internment?”
More than a thousand political opponents of the Churchill government were interned without trial during the Second World War, including the former Labour government minister Sir Oswald Mosley and the Conservative MP Capt. Archibald Maule Ramsay.
Also several thousand more German and Italian civilians (including Jews and other refugees) were kept in British internment camps.
Ms Yeo has not made clear exactly whom she wishes to intern, nor whether this is official UKIP policy. For example, how many voters in the forthcoming Oldham West & Royton by-election would UKIP hope to intern?
In the local by-election for Aylesford Green ward, Ashford, on November 19th she obtained one of UKIP’s best recent results: finishing runner-up with 109 votes, losing by just a single vote to a 19-year-old Tory (though the turnout was a dismal 19%).
Meanwhile Ms Yeo’s party leader Nigel Farage last week used a column in Britain’s best selling newspaper (Rupert Murdoch’s Sun) to insist that “we can win the battle for hearts and minds by asserting the values of our Judeo-Christian culture.”
Mr Farage is the first party leader since Tony Blair to proclaim religious values in this manner at the core of his political message. One fears that (as with Blair) this translates into an uncritical loyalty to Israel, with the assumption that Benjamin Netanyahu’s aggressive Zionism can be an answer to Islamist terrorism rather than part of the problem.
Scarcely a day goes by without some media commemoration of recent British military history, by which Britons are asked to remember the carnage of the First World War trenches, the nightmare of Japanese POW camps, or more recent heroism of the wounded left on Afghanistan’s plains.
One military campaign is excluded from this roll of honour, erased from the history books. This was Britain’s first “war on terror” in the Middle East from 1945 to 1948, where our terrorist enemies were the three paramilitary arms of Zionist Jewry – Haganah, Irgun and the Stern Gang.
The brunt of this offensive was borne in Palestine by British conscripts, many too young to have served in the Second World War that had just ended, others veterans of that European conflict where they had fought to protect the very Jews whose bullets and bombs were now aimed at them. Palestine had been ruled by British Mandate authorities since the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in the First World War some thirty years earlier.
But during the last two years before the creation of the state of Israel in 1948, Zionism’s terrorist godfathers had extended their war to the streets of London. In April 1947 a huge bomb was left inside the Colonial Office in Whitehall. It failed due to a faulty timer: had it exploded the bomb would have caused devastation in central London on a similar scale to the Irgun’s bombing of the King David Hotel in 1946, where almost a hundred were killed and many more injured.
In March 1947 another member of the same Stern Gang unit succeeded in bombing a central London target. His commander proudly boasted of striking at the heart of the British Empire and even recent Jewish authors have described the target as “a gentlemen’s club …frequented by the staff of the Colonial Office.” It was nothing of the kind. The British Colonies Club, located at the corner of Trafalgar Square adjacent to the Church of St Martin in the Fields, was a welfare facility for colonial servicemen, many of them non-white. It was here that a young French Jew packed the shoulders of his overcoat with gelignite before making his escape: the resulting explosion wrecked the club, blew out the church windows and left several injuries.
On Saturday 1st August a group of British nationalists including H&D‘s assistant editor Peter Rushton, film maker Lady Michèle Renouf, and London Forum organiser Jez Turner laid a wreath at the Trafalgar Square site. A large crowed of tourists and passers-by watched in respectful silence, as some forty British Nationalists and patriots participated in the moving ceremony organised by a committee including former NF national organiser Martin Webster and former BNP national organiser Richard Edmonds, now back with the NF. Afterwards they were among the speakers at a well-attended meeting in a Kensington hotel.
On Saturday 1st August a newly-formed group ‘Forgotten British Heroes Campaign’, will hold a wreath-laying ceremony near Trafalgar Square, London, in remembrance of Jewish terrorist attacks on British servicemen, Crown servants and civilians in the late 1940s.
The wreath-laying ceremony will take place at the site of the British Colonies Club, which was bombed by members of the Irgun terrorist group on 7th March 1947. The building was partly demolished and numerous people were injured and maimed.
The wreath-laying, followed by a short public meeting at the site, will commence at about 4.00 pm
A private meeting will take place on Saturday evening, including the showing of a film by Lady Michèle Renouf with interviews of former British servicemen who fought Jewish terrorism in Palestine, 1945-48.
The evening meeting will be chaired by Jez Turner of the London Forum, a veteran of the Royal Corps of Signals. Other speakers will include H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton; Richard Edmonds; and Martin Webster.
The ceremony will also commemorate:
• the two 20 year old British Army sergeants, Mervyn Paice and Clifford Martin, who were kidnapped in Palestine by Menachem Begin, head of the Irgun terrorists, and then on 31st July 1947 were hanged with piano wire in the eucalyptus groves at Netanya. Their bodies were booby-trapped in the hope of killing those who came to cut the bodies down;
• the 100 British Army personnel, Crown servants and civilians who were murdered by means of a huge bomb planted by the Irgun in the basement of the King David Hotel, Jerusalem, on 22nd July 1946;
• the murder by parcel-bomb in May 1948, in Britain, of Rex Farran, brother of Captain Roy Farran DSO, MC — an SAS anti-terrorism specialist. Rex opened the parcel addressed to “R. Farran” at the Farran family home;
• the murder of Walter Edward Guinness (Baron Moyne) DSO, & Bar, Secretary of State for the Colonies, and his British Army driver, Corporal Fuller, on 6th November 1944. The hand-gun assassinations were carried out in Cairo by the Lehi Zionist terrorist group (a.k.a. “the Stern Gang”);
• the massacre of Arab civilian villagers at Deir Yassin, Palestine, in a combined operation by the Irgun and the Lehi on 10th April 1948.
On the day of this commemoration the Israeli Ambassador in London, Daniel Taub, will receive a letter from the Campaign recollecting the details of the above and other Zionist atrocities which continue until this day, and demanding, among other things, that Israel pay compensation to the victims of Zionist terrorism and their families, build a ‘Museum of Zionist Terrorism’ in Jerusalem and institute courses about Zionist terrorism in Israel’s schools as a warning to future generations.
The letter is signed by Martin Webster, Richard Edmonds, Jeremy Turner, Lady Michèle Renouf, and Peter Rushton.
Copies of the text of the letter will be sent on request.
