FACT SHEET: RIGHT-WING TERRORISM IN THE UK

On 20th September, the GOV.UK website published a factsheet which set out to explains the threat posed by right-wing terrorism and the UK Government response.  It says that, since 2017, the police have disrupted 22 terrorist plots, 7 of which were related to extreme right-wing ideologies.  Right wing terrorism remains a relatively small threat, but it is growing, it says.  In December 2016, the then Home Secretary proscribed the first extreme right-wing group, National Action and took further action in September 2017, proscribing Scottish Dawn and National Socialist Anti-Capitalist Action as aliases of National Action.
