Hsiao-Hung Pai
Sat 28 May 2016,

Whatever happened to the UK far right? With the formal dissolution of the BNP and decline of the EDL, it seems the demons have been exorcised. Or have they? Hsiao-Hung Pai shows that far-right ideas are increasingly incorporated into mainstream politics and media discourse. Following a group of individuals who got caught up in the wave of far-right street movements that began in 2009, she investigated the rise of the EDL and other far-right organisations, falling in with several of their members and observing their day-to-day lives.

She explains that their ideologies are not an aberration in modern British society, but rather they are an ever-present facet, constantly reproduced, rejuvenated and made mainstream by the media and political powers.

She is joined by Darren Carroll, a former EDL activist whose story is featured in her book Angry White People.
