Nazi Terrorist

The Telegraph reports:

A man has been charged with carrying two bombs on a train ahead of a planned terror attack

Neil Lewington is accused of possessing the explosives, bomb-making instructions and a Nazi-style booklet.

The 43-year-old was stopped at Lowestoft station, in Suffolk, on October 30, after allegedly being abusive to a member of staff.

Lewington was searched, arrested, and is being held by anti-terrorist officers from the Metropolitan Police.

He is accused of possessing timers, weedkiller, firelighters and tennis balls in connection with the commission, preparation or instigation of an act of terrorism, on the same day.

Lewington, of Tilehurst, Reading, will appear in custody at City of Westminster Magistrates Court charged with ten offences under the Terrorism Act, and another under the Explosives Act.

He is accused on five counts of recording or possessing information or documents likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

The documents allegedly include notebooks, a folder containing drawings and handwritten notes, the WAFFEN SS UK Members Handbook, and a book entitled Counter Bomb.

He also faces four charges of possessing an article in circumstances which give rise to a reasonable suspicion that his possession was for a purpose connected with the commission, preparation or instigation of an act of terrorism.

Lewington is also charged with preparing to commit acts of terrorism and possessing an explosive substance with intent to endanger life or cause serious injury to property.

Let us hope that, in the wake of this  there will be no calls for us urgently to reconsider or alter British foreign or domestic policy to avoid provoking Nazi terrorists.

Please, let us not hear complaints that white people, with links to ‘patriotic’ organisations are being unfairly targeted.

We could also do without conspiracists suggesting that unseen powers have framed this suspect, by using the black digital arts to manufacture evidence.

And, in particular we could do without “white nationalists” claiming that the charges in relation to the bomb making material amount to punishment for a “thought crime“, claiming that the arrest of this man has made Britain a “republic of fear” for white people, or betting that the charges will be a hoax.
