This chapter examines the ways violence and the extreme right have often been intertwined. It reflects on the history of extreme right violence, and how this has changed over time, and also the ways the threats from lone actors have grown. It explored the idea of brakes on violence that can restrict aggression from groups, and stresses that fringe activists not only act violently in ways that are inspired by the wider movement, but also that elements of the wider movement celebrate these attacks. As such the extreme right fosters a potent ecosystem steeped in justifications of violence, and while groups tend not to direct aggression, they help sustain an environment likely to produce unpredictable violent attacks. Finally, it documents the wide range of violent attacks from the British extreme right since the 1990s.
