He was a co-founder of the Steadfast journal, and became a trustee of the Steadfast Trust, founded in 2005, which describes itself as "the first and only registered charity which undertakes work specifically for the ethnic English community".[4]

He was interviewed by Darcus Howe in the second episode of Channel 4's three-part documentary series White Tribe, which aired in 2000.[5]

In January 2010 he was asked by Andrew Constantine to join the English Independence Party, which Constantine had recently taken control of. Linsell agreed and was installed as Party chairman.
