In April 1994 in a dramatic World in Action programme Tim Hepple appeared on camera as a source helping expose the violent Nazi group Combat 18. However, at the end of April a pamphlet 'A Lie Too Far', exposed Hepple as an agent provocateur in the Anarchist movement. This pamphlet focused on the list of names and details of C-18 thugs which Hepple encouraged Green Anarchist magazine to publish. The list contained many factual errors and was composed with intention of getting Anarchists arrested and encouraging C18/BNP members to mount-counter attacks
A 1987 profile referred to Gable's "wide range of contacts, including people in the secret services. This includes a range of infiltrators, defectors and casual informers. Its most famous defectors have been Ray Hill and Sonia Hochfelder. Infiltrators have included Peter Rushton.
And haven't Gable and co ever heard of Cynthia Jarrett? And have they forgotten already Joy Gardner? In the light of all that, it really is a bit insensitive of them to lavish praise on Met Commissioner Paul Condon. 1. We're not the slightest bit bothered about "hate propaganda". He was in and out of a number of groups, left and right, including the Church of the Creator. The Church of the Creator is a group run by a fanatical - and ironically Jewish - anti-Semite, the recently deceased Ben Klassen. Not content with that, next Hepple joined an anarchist group and began preaching mindless violence against the BNP, an organisation he'd once worked for, and, on his own admission, stolen from. In the Autumn 1992 issue of Green Anarchist writing under the pseudonym Eagle Scout, Hepple openly incited his presumably anarchist readers to murder the leaders of the British National Party.
It's also noted that the Far Right is not just a 'bunch of thugs' - that's the danger of a book like this. Physical opposition is important but the politics and organisation of the Far Right must be opposed ideologically as well as physically. It's a good book and should be read with a critical eye but I did enjoy a slice of recent anti-fascist history. The truth was that (heavily outnumbered) the BNP took up position on a narrow bridge to even the odds, and AFA prudently decided to hold back.
None more so than in the case of Tim Tim Hepple, the state asset who simultaneously infiltrated the fascist 'right' and the green movement.
