Man, 22, accused of planning to murder Rosie Cooper, MP for West Lancashire, and threatening to kill a police officer



An alleged member of the banned neo-**** group National Action has appeared in court accused of plotting to murder a Labour MP with a machete and threatening to kill a police officer.

The 22-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Westminster magistrates’ court charged with intention to commit terrorism, namely buying a Gladius machete to murder Rosie Cooper, the MP for West Lancashire.

He is alleged to have purchased the machete between 5 June and 3 July. He also faces a charge of a threat to kill a detective constable and of being a member of a proscribed organisation, National Action. He allegedly made the threat on 1 July.

Christopher Lythgoe, 31, also appeared, charged with giving the 22-year-old defendant permission on 1 July to murder Cooper in the name of National Action.

Lythgoe, from Warrington, and four other men were also charged with being members of the organisation.

The other men are: Garron Helm, 24, of Seaforth, Merseyside; Matthew Hankinson, 23, of Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside; Andrew Clarke, 33, of Warrington and Michael Trubini, 35, of Warrington.

All men, including the 22-year-old, are charged with being members of the organisation between 16 December last year and 27 September.

Lythgoe and Helm applied to be released on bail, to which Kiernan Cunningham, for the prosecution, objected.

Emma Arbuthnot, the chief magistrate, refused applications for bail and committed the case to the crown court. All men were remanded in custody and will appear at the Old Bailey on 3 November.

In a statement, Cooper said: “I would like to thank everyone involved in this case, especially the counter-terrorism police, for keeping me, my staff and the public safe. There remains an ongoing criminal investigation so it would not be appropriate for me to comment further.”

National Action became the first extreme rightwing group to be banned under terrorism laws on 16 December 2016.

The proscription means that being a member of or inviting support for the organisation is a criminal offence carrying a sentence of up to 10 years’ imprisonment.

Good to see terror group members like Action First being punished & what needs to happen now is that other terror groups like Antifa,Black lives matter,momentum & the current Labour party are placed on the Terrorist organization list.

Get rid of the violent anti-British scum.
