20 years on Cumming (57) who lost his job because the attention around his recent offending, spoke to the Sunday World exactly 20 years ago. A far-right idiot convicted this week of sending “grossly offensive” material has been spouting hideous Nazi hate speech for over 20 years, we can reveal. Gregory Alan Cumming was lucky to walk out the public door rather than be taken to the cells of Newry courthouse on Tuesday after District Judge Anne Marshall suspended the five-month prison sentence for 18 months. The 57-year-old, from Orangefield Drive in Armagh, had earlier entered guilty pleas to four counts relating to the improper use of a public telecommunication network to send material which was grossly offensive including Nazi and Klu Klux Klan supporting rubbish. But we can reveal Cumming has a long history of spreading hideous hate speech and has even denied the Holocaust. In fact he spoke to the Sunday World exactly 20 years ago when he was the leader of the British Nazi Party in Northern Ireland – a political party formed by a bunch of right-wing radicals who felt the BNP wasn’t right-ring enough. Under the fake name ‘Gary Allen’ Cumming told our reporter in 2003 how he was openly anti-Semitic and the Holocaust was a fiction put about by Hollywood and the Soviets. “People don’t find our views offensive,” he said back then. “We are anti-Semitic, I don’t have a problem with that. People here are sophisticated and our policies on asylum seekers have gone down very well. “We are a legal party which is legally promoting policies. We are Nazis.” Far right campaigner Gregory Cumming Last year when the Sunday World confronted him at his home after he had been charged with spreading hate material, he was less chatty and slammed the door in our face without saying a word. It emerged in court this week he had lost his job because the attention around his recent offending. As well as being a leading figure in the British Nazi Party he’s also a former member of the National Front and the British National Party. Cumming had originally been charged with distributing far right material intending to stir up racial hatred but that charges were finished by the PPS. On Tuesday at Armagh Magistrates Court, sitting in Newry, a prosecuting lawyer told the court the images and texts were uncovered on a phone found in Cumming’s house during a search. The material he had sent included a reference to “Comrade 88,” an image and text regarding a person “dousing himself in flammable liquid and setting himself on fire” and an image and text regarding the Klu Klux Klan (KKK), said the lawyer who did not go into further details about their content.
