Far-Right on the rise warns Security Minister : The Telegraph

The Government’s security minister has warned of the rise of far-Right extremism in Britain, as the latest Home Office figures showed a sharp rise in arrests for domestic terrorism offences.

The number people held for suspected domestic terror offences jumped nearly five-fold in the past 12 months in Great Britain.

Far-Right terrorist suspects drove the  increase, security sources told the Telegraph.

Speaking after the Finsbury Park terrorist attack, Ben Wallace, the security minister, said: “What I can say on this case is this individual, so far as we know at the moment, was not known to us, but we are aware of a rise in the far-Right.”

He said online propaganda was helping fuel far-Right radicalisation, just as it was feeding Islamist extremism.

He said: “One of the biggest problems we all have is multi media today.

“The speed and grooming that these people involve themselves in, whether Islamic or far-Right, are something we all have to grapple together.”
