  • Description

    LINCOLN ROCKWELL, THE AMERICAN NAZI LEADER, WAS PUT ON AN AMERICAN JET AIRLINER AT LONDON AIRPORT, UK, AUG 9 - BOUND FOR THE UNITED STATES AFTER HIS ARREST THE PREVIOUS DAY ON A DEPORTATION ORDER ISSUED BY THE HOME OFFICE.

    A POLICE CAR WITH A HEAVY ESCORT DROVE HIM STRAIGHT FROM A LONDON POLICE CELL TO THE STEPS OF THE WAITING AIRCRAFT. DETECTIVES ESCORTED HIM INTO THE PLANE, THEN OTHER PASSENGERS FOLLOWED.

    MR. ROCKWELL, DESPITE A HOME OFFICE BAN ON ANY VISIT TO BRITAIN, ENTERED THE COUNTRY FROM NEIGHBOURING EIRE, AND ATTENDED A NAZI-STYLE RALLY AUG 5. HE THEN DISAPPEARED UNTIL SCOTLAND YARD DETECTIVES LOCATED HIM IN LONDON AND ARRESTED HIM.

    THE INCIDENT IS THE LATEST IN A SERIES OF EXTREME RIGHT-WING RALLIES AND ENSUING BRAWLS IN BRITAIN. BUT MOST OF THE OPPOSITION TO THESE MINORITY "FASCISTS" IS PEACEFUL: THE CHIEF RABBI TOOK A DELEGATION OF LEADING JEWS IN BRITAIN TO THE HOME OFFICE THIS MONTH TO EXPRESS THEIR DISQUIET AND DELEGATES FROM SEVEN LONDON BOROUGHS, AUG 9, WERE ALSO THERE TO APPEAL FOR ACTION TO BAN "FASCIST" ACTIVITIES.

    FOR THE HOME OFFICE, THE PROBLEM IS: "HOW TO PRESERVE THE RIGHT OF FREE EXPRESSION OF OPINION WHILE EFFECTIVELY DISCOURAGING WANTON INCITEMENT TO RACIAL HATRED."
