A former ‘Miss Hitler’ pageant contestant and her ex-boyfriend have been jailed for being members of the banned far-right group National Action.
Alice Cutter and her ex Mark Jones were sentenced today at Birmingham Crown Court to three years and five and a half years, respectively. The duo appeared alongside Garry Jack and Connor Scothern who have also been jailed.
Judge Paul Farrer QC told Jones that he had ‘played a significant role in the continuation of the organisation,’ after its ban in December 2016.
The group was labelled as ‘anti-semitic, racist and homophobic’ by the then-Home Secretary Amber Rudd. The National Action was banned after a series of rallies and incidents. Members publicly praised the murder of MP Jo Cox – who was shot and stabbed by far-right extremist Thomas Mair.
Cutter, 23, entered the ‘Miss Hitler’ beauty contest as Miss Buchenwald, which is a reference to one of the Second World War death camps.
