Traditional Britain Group under fire

Our friends at the Traditional Britain Group (TBG) are under fire by the liberal media after a left-wing blog run by a Sikh immigrant 'exposed' their links to a right-wing Tory MP, Jacob Rees Mogg, who spoke at the TBG's annual dinner earlier this year.

The BBC's flagship current affairs TV programme Newsnight devoted a considerable amount of time to the affair interviewing Jacob Rees-Mogg, the TBG's spokesman Gregory Lauder Frost, and ex-communist party candidate and convicted burglar, Gerry Gable, the current publisher of Searchlight, who claimed credit for 'exposing' the TBG in the first place and laughably described some of their members as "nasty" and "national socialist".

The breathless presentation by the BBC also 'exposed' the TBG's views on immigration (the group supports the 1970 Conservative party manifesto which called for the voluntary repatriation of the UK's burgeoning immigrant population) and examined some of the TBG's views with regards the elevation of Doreen Lawrence, the mother of murdered black teenager Stephen Lawrence, to the House of Lords last week, who will now sit as a Labour peer.

Jacob Rees Mogg, who was apparently "warned" by ex-burglar, Gerry Gable, about the TBG prior to the speaking engagement, has now disowned the organisation, thanks to media pressure.

The TBG held a very successful conference last year in London, which Civil Liberty was happy to support.

The TBG has also attended UKIP conferences in the past. A previous speaker at a TBG dinner was the UKIP MEP for London, Gerard Batten.

Searchlight's rival 'anti-fascist' crank organisation, the pro-Labour Hope not Hate campaign group, has also intervened in the row. Nick Lowles, director of Hope not Hate, and widely regarded by his critics on the left as a state-friendly establishment tout, said: "There should be no such place in British politics for racists such as Traditional Britain Group. Both David Cameron and Nigel Farage should condemn the TBG and make it clear that none of their members should associate (with) this group."
