Neo-Nazis and far-right extremists are hijacking Vote Leave

Far-right extremists with racist views have been accused of hijacking the campaign for Britain to leave the EU.
Neo-Nazis, former members of the English Defence League and British National Party are among those who have been pictured campaigning for Brexit.
Vote Leave has detached itself from the activists – some of whom have been pictured distributing the campaign’s leaflets.
A spokesman for Vote Leave told the Mail on Sunday: ‘Unfortunately there is little we can do about undesirable characters buying our merchandise and distributing it. We do not want to be associated in any way with such people.’
The newspaper reports that controversial Brexit supporters include senior BNP official Mark Collett and his girlfriend Eva Van Housen – whose tattoos include a swastika on her chest and an Adolf Hitler quote.
Pic shows: Eva Van Housen, who has a swastika tattooed on her chest, have been distributing leaflets by Vote Leave, the main pro-Brexit group. She was seen handing out the leafelets in Leeds, with boyfriend senior BNP official Mark Collett Collett, a former chairman of the BNP youth wing, handed out the material from a stall with Ms Van Housen, whose tattoos also include a quote from Adolf Hitler. Collett was subject of TV documentary ñ Young, Nazi And Proud Picture by Pixel8000 07917221968

Mr Collett was the subject of a TV documentary, ‘Young, Nazi and Proud’.
In it, he said Aids was a ‘friendly disease’ because of its association with black and gay people.
Outspoken Ms Van Housen has posted images of Hitler on social media with the caption ‘#hitlerwasright’.
The couple have handed out material published by Vote Leave – and though the group has asked them to stop, their plea has been ignored.
Andrew Edge, a prominent member of the EDL who was jailed for attacking police, is another controversial Brexit-backer.

White supremacist internet forums are also ugly supporters of Brexit.

One member, who chose Hitler as his profile profile, wrote ‘leaving the EU should be a given to any white native of Britain’.
