Tory MP in Nazi Salute Scandal

It may come as a shock to many people, but the most powerful Nazi political party ever set up in Britain, the British Union of Fascists, was a Tory group.
Sir Oswald Mosley was a Tory MP, and also a Labour MP.
The leadership of the BUF came from the ranks of both the Labour Party and the Tory Party.
The primary backer of the BUF was Lord Rothermere whose grandson, Viscount Rothermere, still owns the Daily Mail.
It was the Tory Press that supported the BUF and Oswald Mosley and the British fascist movement before the war.
The financial backers of the BUF were Tories and also members of the aristocracy.
The BUF were a Tory front group, rather like Nothing British About the BNP.
It was the Tories who supported and nurtured fascism in the United Kingdom before and after the war.
