Two Royal Navy members ‘are activists in far-Right group with links to terrorist organisation’

Exposed: Two Royal Navy members including one set to start work on a Trident nuclear submarine ‘are activists in far-Right group with links to banned terrorist organisation’

  • British wing of Identitarian Movement was infiltrated by anti-fascist informant
  • Trident recruit said that Navy knew of his links with far-right Generation Identity  
  • Tommy Robinson previously expressed support for the Europe-wide movement 

Two far-right extremists part of a group which allegedly supports ‘ethnic cleansing’ and has links with Tommy Robinson have been revealed as members of the Royal Navy.   

The British wing of the European-wide Identitarian Movement was infiltrated last July at their London conference, Generation Identity UK.

Here, this undercover informant, who was sent by anti-fascist campaigners Hope Not Hate, met the pair of Navy employees – one of whom is about to begin service aboard the Trident nuclear submarines.  

Hope Not Hate had reportedly hoped to carry out a more long term penetration of the far-right group, but the startling links with the Trident warship cut it short.

The informant told the Observer: ‘When we realised far-right activists from a group whose stated goal is the ethnic cleansing of Europe were in the navy, we decided to sound the alarm.’

Identitarian Movement’s uncompromising anti-immigration rhetoric and rejection of globalisation has gained traction among certain corners of the continent.

In recent years, it has been on the march across Europe and now boasts more than 60 regional branches. 

But the organisation has been accused of racism and spouting white supremacist views. 

Simon Murdoch, from Hope Not Hate, said it was ‘quite terrifying’ that serving members of the armed forces ‘subscribe to the dangerous far-right ideology that influenced the Christchurch killer’.

The gunmen who slaughtered innocent citizens in the Christchurch and El Paso shootings are believed to have drawn motivation from The Great Replacement conspiracy which blames minorities on a nation’s ills.

The Trident recruit, who has not been named, reportedly told the informant that the Navy is aware he is a member of Generation Identity. 

Last month’s conference in South Kensington, west London, was allegedly attended by a speaker with links to blacklisted terrorist group National Action, according to Hope Not Hate’s informant. 

In March last year, now jailed ex-English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson addressed a Generation Identity packed crowd to read a speech by Martin Sellner, the Identitarian Movement’s Austrian talisman.

A Ministry of Defence spokesperson said: ‘It would be inappropriate to comment specifically on these allegations, but any extremist ideology is completely at odds with the values of our armed forces.

‘We take allegations of this nature very seriously and would always carry out investigations into such matters when they are made against service personnel.’
