Notes And References
(1) If Gable did not actually write this piece then he was responsible for it; Searchlight is his magazine and he has at various times served as contributor, editor and publisher. At the time this article appeared in Searchlight the current writer was in litigation with Gable concerning two defamatory articles for which he admitted liability.
(2) Among other, less euphemistic epithets!
(3) Not to be confused with the then defunct British Movement magazine of the same name.
(4) The second alleged attacker was named as Richard Heyse rather than Heyes.
(5) The attack on Newland was so vicious that it was widely reported in the national media and was even condemned by at least one left wing group, a rarity where “fascist” victims are concerned.

(7) The pun Jews from the sewers is far too good to miss!
(8) The following is based largely on a telephone interview and E-mail exchange with Keith Thompson, who unlike Gable is a reliable witness.
(9) The other eyewitness said Gable panicked when Hamm was knocked to the floor and actually helped him up.
(10) Private information.
(11) An informant who was present when the case finished said that Gable was obviously mad, and that he was spouting a load of drivel about being fitted up by the Security Services.
(12) The O.J. Simpson trial was reported extensively, including on live TV, so it would be superfluous to footnote it further here.
(13) In Gable’s parlance, a “nazi” is any white (Gentile) person who opposes uncontrolled immigration, forced race-mixing or miscegenation.

(21) At the time of writing - December 2002 - there is, or recently has been, a British National Party member named David King; I am informed that he is not the same person. In Searchlight, issue 26 at page 8, McLaren’s full name is given as Hugh Malcolm McLaren. His surname has also been given as McClaren. Roberts was reported (incorrectly) by at least one national newspaper to have used the name John Marshall.
(22) On Ludmer’s death in 1981, the editorship of Searchlight was actually taken over by Veronica (V’ron) Ware, but by Gable’s own account (as far as it can be believed) it was he who founded the original Searchlight in the 1960s, and it is an irrefutable fact that Searchlight magazine was the creation of the two men. The third issue of the magazine, dated May 1975, credits Gable as editor and Ludmer as managing editor.
(23) FOREWARNED Against fascism, No 2, April 1978, page 3. The same issue reports that David John King, said to be the leader of the “White Resistance”, a Ku Klux Klan group, was bailed on a charge of possessing cannabis resin.
(24) Remarkably so in view of her professed anti-Zionism.
(25) According to Terry Liddle, Roberts used to liaise with Special Branch officers in Birmingham gay bars, although he could not vouch for the veracity of this claim.
(26) Gable made this claim in a programme that was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on March 16, 1995.
