I’m a UK-based writer and blogger whose work has focussed in particular on political and religious extremism, racism and anti-Semitism, and the divisive and regressive ideologies of Islamism, anti-Zionism, and the far-left. I have also written critically on religion and on the importance of secularism in a pluralistic context.
I’m the author of The BNP and the Online Fascist Network and co-author, with Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens, of Blood & Honour: Britain’s Far-Right Militants.
My work has been cited in a number of print and online publications and I have appeared on two BBC Radio 4 programmes (File on 4 and The Report) in connection with my work on political extremism.
From 2009-2012, I was a member of the writing team at Harry’s Place, one of Britain’s leading political blogs. I have also written for a number of other online publications, including Jewcy, The Spittoon, The Z-Word, eGov Monitor, Family Security Matters, Butterflies & Wheels, and the eChurch Blog.
