On October 27th 2013 “The Mail” newspaper was printed with a photo of two British army soldiers standing in front of a British flag while imitating a Nazi greeting. The Chief of the Defence Staff reassured the general public that measures in the form of administrative sanctions will be taken against the soldiers.

In 2015, the so-called “British Movement” – an unregistered National Socialist youth movement – organised a small rally in North Yorkshire to commemorate Adolf Hitler’s birthday. The same group held a summer solstice festival. According to them, the festival was based on a National Socialist principle “power through happiness”.

The main source of open glorification of Nazism in 2016 was the aforementioned neo-Nazi outfit National Action (NA). On 26th May the group held a protest in York, where they gave Nazi salutes and unfurled an anti-refugee banner with a picture of Adolf Hitler on it. The group was also investigated by police after they posted a photograph on their social media accounts which seemed to appear to show two of them giving Nazi salutes at the former Buchenwald concentration camp while holding the group’s Nazi-inspired flag. Following the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox in the lead up to the EU referendum, National Action gave public and strong support to her murderer Tom Mair, tweeting the messages: “Our thoughts go out to Thomas Mair #Britain-First #JoCoxMP' and, 'Don't let this man's sacrifice go in vain. #JoCox would have filled Yorkshire with more subhumans." The group were subsequently proscribed under the Terrorism Act 2000, being described by the British Government as “a racist neo-Nazi group”.

During the trial of the aforementioned Jo Cox murderer Thomas Mair, the Jury heard that police had found evidence “including books found at Mair’s home and an examination of his online activities, showed him to be obsessed with the Nazis ... Police later found that a library of far-right literature in his bedroom, including books on the Nazis and white supremacism. On top of the bookshelf was a gold-coloured Third Reich eagle with a swastika.”
