One man and his (Nazi) dog: Mark Meechan, otherwise known as “Count Dankula”, with the dog he taught to Nazi salute when he shouted “Gas the Jews!”

Mark Meechan, the YouTube activist (?) going by the alias “Count Dankula” who was fined £800 for training a dog to do a Nazi salute when he shouted “Gas the Jews!” reckons he’ll be standing for UKIP in the forthcoming EU Parliament elections.

If this is true, I applaud it – it means that UKIP has drifted even further to the political right if it allows a known anti-Semite to become one of its election candidates.

I look forward to seeing both this man and that party sink without a trace.

“Dankula” was recently cut out of a BBC Scotland discussion programme called The Collective after the Corporation received complaints that it was inappropriate to feature a man convicted of an anti-Semitic hate crime.

But the excuse was that he was excised “during the edit process”.

“Dankula” is not only a convicted anti-Semite but also a friend of Stephen Yaxley Lennon, the far-right Islamophobe who is better-known by his stage name “Tommy Robinson”. Funny how they all have aliases, isn’t it?

He shot to infamy over the YouTube clip in which he had trained his girlfriend’s pug to do a Nazi salute while he repeatedly shouted, “Gas the Jews!”

And he dragged Countdown co-host Rachel Riley down with him when she responded to a tweet in which he complained about the possibility of having a GPS tracker attached to him, and being placed under house arrest, with the word “insane”.

The tweet prompted strong responses, although some expressed uncertainty about what Ms Riley meant.

(Further information is available here.)

She has not – to my knowledge – ever clarified the statement in a way that allayed anybody’s fears.

She wants to sue This Writer after I criticised her for ill-treating a teenage girl with anxiety issues who criticised her over her pose as a campaigner against anti-Semitism.

Considering some of the people she supports, it seems clear she hasn’t got a leg to stand on.
