Why is UKIP on here? If anything, they're just mildly conservative. May I remove it from this list please? Harris Morgan 21:22, 16 April 2008 (UTC).

Some might describe "mildly" conservative as a euphemism, but "far right" hardly conforms to WP:NPOV either. If there's any controversy about how, objectively, to describe a political organisation and its positions, we neutrally record both sides in the article. If the way we pigeonhole an article favours one controversial interpretation against another, it would be better to leave it uncategorised. I would go right ahead; you might be reverted, but be bold.
In fact, I'd like to know what Patrick Harrington is doing on this list. It's been roughly two decades since he was a member of the British National Front, and he has publicly renounced his former views. His party, the National Liberal Party, isn't on this template (as it positions itself in the "Radical Centre"), and the template doesn't even appear on Harrington's page. Some people don't believe him, that's their prerogative but it shouldn't be reflected here. I'm certainly going to remove his name from the list. Gnostrat (talk) 02:28, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
I think we should definitely have him on the list: we've got Ray Hill on there, who's very definitely renounced his former views (given that he's now an anti-fascist activist), but given that, like Harrington, he was a key figure in the far right post-1945, and he's still involved with the far right, if only in the sense of opposition to it (as Ray Hill is). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thedisillusionedyouth (talkcontribs) 13:04, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure the Anglo-German Fellowship should be on here. Though some far-right activists were members, I don't think this was a far-right organisation. I'll try and find a source if I remember. Opera hat (talk) 22:08, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

The Anglo-German Fellowship was important for Nazi sympathisers in Britain in co-ordinating with Germany and so belongs in the template. By the same token I take your point that explicitly it was just a group of people seeking to build closer relationships between the two countries rather than a far right organisation and that some members had nobler international relations aims in mind. For these reasons I feel it should be left in but, in keeping with your concerns, be moved to the related articles in order to inidicate that, whilst it was a part of British far right development it was not in itself a specifically far right movement. Indeed, taking advantage of the be bold spirit that is part of this talk page I will make the changes now.Keresaspa (talk) 15:27, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Why is this on the page 'Fourteen Words'[edit]

This template is to do with British Far Right, the Fourteen Words were coined by an American and are of international significance to the Far Right, not just Britain. Remove please. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:02, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

Joshua Bonehill[edit]

Should the self-appointed blogger Joshua Bonehill, with no discernible political affiliations to others, be added to {{UK far right}}?
