"TWO Pendle men have appeared before Pennine magistrates accused of having "a master plan" after what is believed to be a record haul of chemicals used in making home-made bombs was found in Colne.
Robert Cottage (49), of Talbot Street, Colne, and David Bolus Jackson (62), of Trent Road, Nelson, made separate appearances before the court charged with being in possession of an explosive substance for an unlawful purpose. The offences are under the Explosive Substances Act 1883.
Both men were remanded in custody to appear at Burnley Crown Court on October 23rd. Cottage was arrested at his home on Thursday, while retired dentist Jackson was arrested in the Lancaster area on Friday, the same day as he left a dental practice in Grange-over-Sands.
The 22 chemical components recovered by police are believed to be the largest haul ever found at a house in this country.
Cottage is an ex-BNP member who stood as a candidate in the Pendle Council elections in May.
Mrs Christiana Buchanan, who appeared for the prosecution in Jackson's case, alleged the pair had "some kind of masterplan".
She said a search of Jackson's home had uncovered rocket launchers, chemicals, BNP literature and a nuclear biological suit.
Police raided Cottage's Talbot Street home on Thursday of last week. The house was taped off while forensics officers searched the premises. Neighbours were told to stay in their homes for their own safety. Mr Cottage's car was also taken away for examination.
Officers also made a thorough examination of Jackson's Trent Road home and, again, officers were on duty outside the house. Forensics officers examined the property."
Ex-BNP?? Oh yeah, sure. He was a fully paid up member of the BNP until 5 months ago, and now they are trying to deny his past/current political affiliations, the reality is that he still is a member, just they want to disassociate themselves from him.
The BNP is full of would-be fascist bombers**, who for the moment find it more opportune to wear a smile and tone down their fascist rhetoric, but once in a while one of the thugs gives the game away, showing the BNP for what they truly are: Neo-Nazis in suits , with new patter to disguise their fascist heritage.
**Let us not forget about that BNP/Neo-Nazi nutter David Copeland, the nail bomber that attacked Brick Lane, Brixton and Admiral Duncan in Soho in the late 1990s.
Searchlight reminds us that "In the mid 1980s Lecomber received a derisory three-year prison sentence after a nail bomb he was trying to deliver to the headquarters of a leftwing organisation went off prematurely in his car. When the Bomb Squad searched his home in Ilford, east London, they found home-made hand-grenades and electronic detonators."
Cottage, Copeland and Lecomber, the tip of the neo-Nazis iceberg
