Hitting home: Norway terrorist cites British links
By Ian Dunt Follow @IanDunt
The British targets of Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik have been revealed in a 1,518-page manifesto he wrote before Friday's attack.
The Christian Conservative extremist cites Gordon Brown, Tony Blair and even Jack Straw as assassination targets and even includes a full Daily Mail article.
Judge Kim Heger today confirmed Mr Breivik would be remanded in custody for eight weeks and barred from recieving visitors or letters. He will be in complete isolation for four weeks.
He added that Mr Breivik pleaded not guilty on the basis that he claims to be trying to save Norway from Islam.
He mentioned that Mr Breivik claimed there were two more cells in his organisation.
"Everyone in Britain shares in the sorrow and anger of the despicable killings that took place last Friday," prime minister David Cameron said during a joint press conference with the prime minister of Spain this afternoon.
Mr Cameron praised the "dignitiy, courage and decency" of the Norwegian people and referred to the relationship between the two countries during the Second World War.
"Britain and Norway have been good allies and neighbours in very dark days before," he said.
The prime minister confirmed that the National Security Council (NSC) has started reviewing counter-terror strategies at home.
Mr Breivik's manifesto, essentially a military strategy against what he calls "multicultural traitors", is datelined 'London 2011' and written in perfect English.
Gordon Brown is accused of "colluding" with Islamic groups to establish London as a global centre for Islamic finance.
"Brown is giving Muslims more influence over our lives yet knows that terrorists are organising to go to war with us," Mr Breivik wrote.
Jack Straw and Tony Blair are also attacked for allowing in more immigrants and working to "make Britain more multicultural". The latter is described as "a worse appeaser than Chamberlain ever was".
The Prince of Wales is cited for his role as patron of the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies.
In a sign that he had more than a superficial knowledge of British politics, the confessed killer even cites Labour MP Jon Cruddas, Tony Blair's speech writer Andrew Neather and former Hong Kong governor Chris Patten.
"Traitors" are classed as category A or B," he wrote. A total of 62,216 are cited for the UK.
Melanie Phillips, a right-wing columnist for the Daily Mail, has an entire article copied into the document, where she argues that Labour immigration policy was constructed "to destroy for ever what it means to be culturally British and to put another 'multicultural' identity in its place".
Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has a Sunday Times article cited in which he complains about the English perception of the national flag.
Several news articles from British newspapers are mentioned in the document.
There are also reports that Mr Breivik was in contact with the English Defence League (EDL), a new far-right grouping whose demonstrations in English towns often descend into violence. If shown to be accurate, the link could lead to calls for it to be banned.
Mr Breivik is due in court today for a bombing in Oslo and a massacre on an island holding a youth camp in which at least 93 people died.
Norway will hold a one-minute silence at 12:00 local time (10:00 BST)
The killer seems to see his mission as part of an atomised terrorist network, branding himself a 'justiciar knight'. Ironically, he envisages it having a similar set-up to Al-Qaida, with cells installed around Europe functioning without a central command.
The document calls for a "monoculture" modelled on Japan or South Korea, both countries where immigration is severely curtailed and those who come to the country are subject to extra regulations.
Scotland Yard counter-terrorism chief Cressida Dick has been tasked with supporting specialist officers in investigating any European far-right groups which could have helped in the attack.
