(Jan 25, 2010) A member of the British National Party, a far right political party, has been jailed for 11 years after pleading guilty to 22 offenses, including collecting information useful for terrorism and possessing explosives and firearms. Police had discovered a significant amount of explosive devices and firearms at his home. During sentencing, the judge noted "there is no case in which such a long and persistent course of manufacture of both guns and explosives combined with possession of material likely to be useful to those who commit terrorist acts has ever been before a court before."
