Ignored - The Threat of Far Right Terrorism In The UK


Examine these faces. Even if you're a news junkie, we bet you won't know many of them.

These are just some of the UK Far Right Terrorists jailed in the last 18 months. Due to media low-prioritizing these stories, we bet you'll recognise very few.

The media move on so quickly from these stories - if they cover them at all. Some of the cases were only found in regional titles.

As the American CATO Institute found last year after a long study, Islamist Terrorism receives 440% more media coverage - airtime and column inches - per incident compared to similair attacks by native born Terrorists, either in Europe or USA.

It's an imbalance in reporting that affects people's views.

Believe it or not, there are still those who think Islam is the greater threat.
