BNP election candidate arrested in biggest explosives haul ever

BNP leader Nick Griffin with bodyguard facing race hate charges

Two men were arrested in Lancashire last week in the biggest explosives haul ever found at a house in the UK.

Robert Cottage (49), of Talbot Street, Colne, and David Bolus Jackson (62), of Trent Road, Nelson, appeared at a Pennine magistrate's court charged under the Explosive Substances Act 1883. Mrs Christiana Buchanan, acting for the prosecution in court, suggested that the pair had "some kind of masterplan".

Following a brawl between Russian and Chechen mafia, a popular assembly adopted a fascist resolution for a pogrom. A later anti-fascist attack on fascist leaders resulted in several arrests.

On August 29th, a row began in a café, 'Chayka', in Kondologa, Russia. The fight was between drunken local youths and the Chechen criminal group, which ran the cafe.
