BITS-OPBy John Bean. A brand new sensational novel from the veteran British nationalist leader, writer, speaker and activist author of Many Shades of Black.

Blood in the Square is a novel—based on the author’s own factual experiences—which takes the reader inside the British nationalist movements of the mid-sixties vying for support on the anti-immigration bandwagon.  Importantly, it tells you what these people were like, what they thought and how they lived. Much of this is based on the author’s own experiences.

It is polemical in that whilst it exposes the cynical exploitation of many people’s worries at that time in regard to early immigration, it also shows why those movements initially attracted the support of a considerable number of ordinary Britons—and why they lost it.

The author also describes typical feelings of several of those who were in opposition to the racial nationalists: a young radical liberal, a West Indian immigrant, and a militant Jewish anti-fascist. It is a time capsule of certain aspects of sixties life, with its hopes, its passions, its loves and betrayals. It was also a time that hardly knew of political correctness and where freedom of expression was paramount.

Those whose minds are now governed by the PC form of thought processing will not like this book. Some may dislike the scenes of violence that were endemic at many public meetings and demonstrations—violence that came from left and right and was often orchestrated.  But all will be fascinated enough to read it through to the end.

About the author: John Edward Bean was born in Carshalton, Surrey in 1927.  His paternal forbears came from North Yorkshire and Northumberland. In 1950, he joined Oswald Mosely’s post-war political Union Movement. In 1957, he and Foutnaine set up the National Labour Party, which then merged with the White Defence League in 1960 to form the British National Party. Bean played a leading role in the formation of the National Front in 1967, and held the post of Deputy Chairman of the Executive Directorate. He retired from activity in the NF in 1972, and remained largely inactive until joining a new BNP (not the same one of the 1960s) in 2000. In 2004, he stood for that party on the Scottish regional assembly list, drawing 19,427 votes. He also became editor of the party magazine, Identity. In 2010, he broke with the party and retired for a second time.
