British politician, born in London in 1896 and died in 1980. He/She was a Deputy for the Conservative Party (1918-1922), then by the independent until 1924, and from 1926 to 1931, by the labour party. The following year he/she founded the British fascist movement, which he/she directed until 1940, year in which was dissolved. It and its members wore black uniforms, causing them to be nicknamed as the blackshirts (black shirts) and were responsible for a strong wave of anti-Semitic violence, especially in the East End of London.
During World War II, from 1940 to 1943, he/she was imprisoned. In 1948 he/she organized the Union movement, which was composed of fifty-one right-wing organizations, but although in recent years it continued to be the main British fascist leader, never returned to politics, at least in an official way. His autobiography, titled my life appeared in 1968.
He was a man who didn't know how to take advantage of the enviable political connections that afforded him their social position and their brilliant intelligence, which squandered at the service of the fascist party.
