The Traditional Britain Group "offers a focal point to promote ideas, discussion, networking, education and traditionalist action." [1] Originally founded in 2001, and revived in 2010, according to a 2014 penned by Searchlight magazine "the organisation is currently acting as a crucial ideological clearing house for the wider British far right, as well as for more radical conservative figures too." "As well as identifying with Heidegger and Jünger, both seen by academic analysts as examples of interwar German fascists who also developed complex relationships with the Nazi regime, we see some other curious figures from interwar European fascism mentioned on Traditional Britain’s Facebook page too. For example, for many, Corneliu Codreanu is not a household name, yet he is cited positively on the Facebook page of Traditional Britain. We should remember that Codreanu was the highly charismatic leader of the interwar Romanian fascist grouping, the Legion of the Archangel Michael. This was a violent, Christian fascist organisation steeped in an ideology that drew heavily on Romanian Orthodox Christianity, hence its title." ... "Similarly, a series of antisemitic conspiricists inspired by Nazi ideas of race, and neo-fascists, from the post-war era, crop up on Traditional Britain’s webpages. One can find references to ideologues such as Francis Parker-Yockey, who in the late 1940s called for a new form of European fascism in the wake of the defeated Nazi regime." ... "Another more significant reference point, a figure that the group cited very regularly on their webpage and who crops up throughout other material developed by Traditional Britain too, is Julius Evola."... "Other crucial figures that broadly fit within this European milieu of intellectualised far right, and often revolutionary, fascist ideas, also include Alain de Benoist, another standout post-war figure whose ideas are promoted by the Traditional Britain Group...Telling of its networking within New Right circles, the Traditional Britain Group helped to promote a recent conference that featured De Benoist as a keynote speaker, titled ‘The End Of The Present World Conference’. Held on 12 October 2013, the event also included Alexander Dugin another key figure within the New Right, and is revealing of the wider circles the group operates within." [2]
