Daniel Trilling

Daniel Trilling is the Assistant Editor at the New Statesman and is the author of ‘Bloody Nasty People: The Rise of Britain’s Far-Right’.

‘Bloody Nasty People…’ charts the rise of the BNP over the past 10 years and details the emergence of the English Defence League. The book also explores how mainstream politicians have underestimated the far-right in Britain and while pursuing policies that have contributed to the growth of far-right movements.

Daniel said this about Show Racism the Red Card "I think that it is a great campaign. It’s doubly important that we don’t only rely on official initiatives - like the Football Association’s own anti-racist campaign, for example - but have grassroots projects that can challenge existing power structures."
