The political activism of Sir Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists (the Blackshirts) presented many problems for the police during the interwar period. Although the police were often accused of defending fascist activism, while oppressing communist and anti-fascist activism, the reality is much more multifaceted.
Utilising examples from Plymouth and Exeter, Dr Channing, Lecturer in Criminology at Plymouth University, highlights the inconsistencies in policing practices, providing cultural, legal and practical explanations.
