‘Miss Hitler’ entrant and neo-Nazi terror suspect discussed martyrdom, court hears | UK News
A “Miss Hitler” contest entrant accused of being a neo-Nazi terrorist discussed becoming a “martyr” with her boyfriend, a court has heard.
Alice Cutter, 22, raised the subject in a text exchange with her boyfriend, Mark Jones, 24, jurors at Birmingham Crown Court heard on Wednesday.
The pair, both from Sowerby Bridge in West Yorkshire, deny being members of National Action after it was outlawed in December 2016.
The court heard that on the day after Valentine’s Day in 2017 Cutter told Jones in a message: “Can’t think of anybody better to attempt to carve out an existence with, even if the West is utterly f*****.”
Jones, a joiner, replied: “Ride the tiger. Don’t over think it, as their whole world view is self-defeating in the end.
“We’ll do well through it all.”
Cutter, a waitress, said: “I understand, it’s just I’m really not keen on becoming a martyr and leaving kids behind or having them suffer too.
“But they will suffer anyway, if we don’t do this.
“And I see being childless as a non-option.”
She added: “I fear what’s coming for all our sakes, but it’s no good thinking like this.”
On Tuesday, jurors were shown evidence of Cutter and Jones talking about gassing synagogues.
The court heard they were chatting about how to make lethal chlorine gas from household chemicals in a text message exchange on 22 June 2016.
Cutter, a waitress, said: “Oh my god, f*** f***, this could be done to synagogues.”
Writing in capitals, she told Jones: “Yes, yes, yes. Kill, kill, kill.”
Garry Jack, 23, from Shard End, Birmingham, and 18-year-old Connor Scothern, from Nottingham, are also on trial and deny belonging to National Action between December 2016 and September 2017.
The trial continues.
