John Tyndall

John Tyndall, a former National Front chairman and the founder of the British National Party had Irish connections. A relative was a bishop of Derry in the Nineteenth Century. He was proud of his descent from William Tyndale, the pioneer Bible translator who was burned at the stake for heresy.

 We fundamentally disagreed with Tyndall on many things – his pro-imperialism, his admiration for defunct European political ideas and his authoritarian outlook. Nevertheless we admired his devotion to his principles as we would anyone who stays faithful to their own lights.  This brought him to prison for expressing some of his more robust opinions.  He faced another politically motivated prosecution at the time of his death.

 To be fair to the man, he allowed Ulster Nation’s editor to write a pro-Ulster-nationalist piece in his own journal, albeit with a reply demonstrating how wrong we Ulster-nationalists are.

John Hutchyns Tyndall, political activist and publisher born 1934 Died 2005.
