I have found your programs interesting and listening to the clips of Tyndall edifying at times though I think his praising of Duke was always wrong. But what I still don’t understand, and this is probably due to lack of time and resources to study/read more about it, is why Tyndall and Colin Jordan split and exactly what was wrong with the NSM? I have read some of Jordan’s excellent collection of articles in “National Socialism: Vanguard of the Future” and see him as a successor to Arnold Leese who briefly mentored him. While I respect both Tyndall and Jordan I feel more and more that boldly proclaiming National Socialism is the only way to win, ultimately, what we seek, whether we use the Swastika flag or the Union Jack or St.George Flag in the case of the UK and England respectively. What I am getting at is that I would have liked more commentary and info on what the differences behind the split that remained until both men’s deaths ever afterward were. Also do you know if there was any communication/correspondence between Jordan and Tyndall after the split?
Keep on with these programs. I found the lack of comments surprising here! I really felt myself so very edified that at times while listening to the program on my mp3 player while walking last night that I said aloud ‘Yes!’ ‘Right on!’ ‘That is the only way!’ while listening to the final speech in the program!
Thanks for your time!
I am not sure why Jordan and Tyndall split – most of the information in the chapter is new to me due to me not being around at the time. I do know the Dior heiress who Jordan married was engaged to John Tyndall previously, so that undoubtedly had a part to play.
The NSM with full Nazi regalia would have never got anywhere in Britain – especially so recent after the war. I agree we need to be NS in ideology but the Golden Dawn have modernized it (Social Nationalism) which is, I would argue, the way forward. I believe Swastikas belong in the 1930’s and the Celtic Cross is suitable for us in the 21st century.
Thanks for listening
Well done on another excellent show, Paul. I grew up in North London and attended secondary school from the mid to late 70’s and I can remember John Tyndall and the glory days of the NF very well.
I’ve been living overseas since the early 80’s so you can probably imagine my despair whenever I hear the latest piece of bad news about what is going wrong in the UK. The speeches you place on the end of your broadcasts do give me hope though. It is a real morale booster to know there are still people living in Britain who are racially aware and willing to stand up and fight for the future of the White race.
Thinking back to the 70’s and 80’s helps me to understand that although websites like tWn can act as catalysts and help boost friendship, understanding and morale within the greater worldwide nationalist community, ultimately, nothing can replace the real life strength and enthusiasm of hundreds or even thousands of disciplined and like minded Kameraden marching through the streets of our cities behind one banner.
Paul, I’m glad you are making the time and effort to take your nationalism to the real world. The masses will never react or wake from their stupor unless they become spellbound and enthralled with our message. They will never even hear the message if we are all content to sit back and stick solely to the Internet.
Am I making sense to anyone?
Well done on another excellent show, Paul. I grew up in London and attended secondary school from the mid to late 70’s so I can remember John Tyndall and the glory days of the NF very well. Tyndall was held in very high regard by me and my mates back then and I must say that it is very interesting to learn more about him through your broadcasts.
According to Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Tyndall_%28politician%29 (yea I know it can be unreliable) Tyndall and Jordan fell out because Françoise Dior who had previously been engaged to Tyndall married Jordan whilst JT was in prison to avoid deportation. I am unaware if ideological differences had been simmering away behind the scenes prior to this.
The Wiki article cites this page at spearhead as its source:
Thank you Charles and yes you are making sense.
It’s good to look back and realise that people (such as John Tyndall and others) were fighting for us before we were even aware of the situation.
I agree about getting out on the street.
Thanks for the link re: Spearhead.
