Britain First: Political Islam is now in Southern Mexico and Latin America
Britain First is a far-right and British nationalist political party and movement formed in 2011 by former members of the British National Party (BNP). The party was founded by Jim Dowson, an anti-abortion campaigner linked to Ulster loyalist groups in Northern Ireland. Its leader is former BNP councillor Paul Golding, but acting leader of the party Jayda Fransen is currently standing in for Golding who has taken six months leave from the party since November 2016.
Britain First campaigns primarily against multiculturalism and what it sees as the Islamisation of the United Kingdom, and advocates the preservation of traditional British culture. It attracted attention by taking direct action such as protests outside homes of Islamic extremists, its “Christian patrols” and “invasions” of British mosques. It has been noted for its online activism. The party has previously contested elections to the House of Commons, the European Parliament and the mayoralty of London, but was unsuccessful.
