The British National Front, most commonly called the National Front (NF), is a far right whites-only British political party whose major political activities were during the 1970s and 1980s. In the 1979 general election, the party got 191,719 votes, 0.6% of the overall vote. It is widely considered a racist group, and the British prison service and police services forbid its employees to be members of party.
The League of Empire Loyalists was a pressure group (also called a 'ginger group' in Britain and the British Commonwealth), established in 1954, campaigning against the dissolution of the British Empire in the 1950s and 1960s. It was a small group of current or former members of the Conservative Party led by Arthur K. Chesterton, a former leading figure in the British Union of Fascists, who had served under Oswald Mosley.
Political Soldier is a political concept associated with the Third Position. It played a leading role in Britain's National Front from the late 1970s onwards under young radicals Nick Griffin, Patrick Harrington and Derek Holland of the Official National Front. The term was used to indicate a fanatical devotion to the cause of nationalism, which its supporters felt was needed to bring about a revolutionary change in society.
The Greater Britain Movement was a political group formed by John Tyndall in 1964 after he split from Colin Jordan's National Socialist Movement. The split was caused by the marriage of Jordan to Françoise Dior who was originally Tyndall's fiancée. She married Jordan to avoid being expelled from the United Kingdom as an undesirable alien while Tyndall was in prison.
The Official National Front was the leading movement within the British National Front during the 1980s and stood opposed to the Flag Group. The ONF emerged in the late 1970s when young radicals such as Nick Griffin, Derek Holland, Patrick Harrington and David Kerr became attracted to Third Position ideas.
The Racial Preservation Society was a right-wing pressure group opposed to immigration and in favour of white supremacy in the United Kingdom in the 1960s. The movement was led by a number of former members of the British Union of Fascists, including Ted Budden, Alan Hancock and Jimmy Doyle, and functioned as a propaganda group without branching into politics (although individual members were free to join political parties).
