Life sentence for Nazi who plotted to murder a Labour MP – and hard questions on anti-Semitism

This news is both good and puzzling.

It’s excellent that neo-Nazism in the UK has been dealt a blow with the imprisonment – for life – of a man who plotted to kill a Labour MP.

It is excellent for the UK – and hugely damaging for the vile movement to which Jack Renshaw belonged – that he was jailed for paedophilia also.

And it is terrific that, after years of high-profile accusations by pro-Israeli government organisations – against innocent people – we can now see what a real anti-Semite looks like.

He looks like this:

Jack Renshaw: This was taken at a National Action event in 2016. Why was it impossible to prove he was a member?

But it is puzzling that it was impossible to establish a link between Renshaw and banned Nazi organisation National Action, when the information that foiled his plot came from a man who met him through that organisation.

And isn’t it puzzling that, now someone who genuinely hates Jews has been found and jailed, nobody who claims to represent Jews against such hate has anything to say?

A neo-Nazi who planned to murder Labour MP Rosie Cooper in a terrorist attack has been jailed for life.

Jack Renshaw, 23, from Skelmersdale, Lancashire, must serve at least 20 years in prison.

A judge at the Old Bailey said Renshaw, who earlier admitted preparing an act of terror, wanted to “replicate” the murder of Jo Cox.

Renshaw made a Nazi salute towards supporters as he was led to the cells from the dock.

He pleaded guilty on the first day of his trial to buying a machete to kill the West Lancashire MP and making threats to kill police officer Det Con Victoria Henderson.

A jury twice failed to reach a verdict on charges relating to his membership of banned neo-Nazi group National Action.

Renshaw was … jailed for 16 months in June 2018 for four counts of grooming adolescent boys.

Renshaw was also jailed for three years in 2018 for stirring up racial hatred in two anti-Semitic speeches in 2016.

  1. Growing Flame

    Aren’t the Nazis supposed to be the greatest anti-semites of all? So, if the Labour Party is now accused of being an anti-semitic Party, why did this Nazi ever want to kill a Labour MP? Surely, in the end, the real haters of Jews know exactly who their enemies are, and their enemies are the Labour Party.
    It’s frightening to consider the amount of time and words expended trying to pin the label “anti-semitic” on the Labour Party compared to the brief, soon-to-be-forgotten, coverage of this Nazi’s trial.
