Alleged UK neo-Nazi admits plot to murder lawmaker

LONDON - An alleged member of a banned British neo-Nazi group pleaded guilty Tuesday to planning to murder a lawmaker.


Jack Renshaw, 23, is accused of buying a machete to kill Labour Party legislator Rosie Cooper last year.


Renshaw pleaded guilty to preparing acts of terrorism as he went on trial alongside five other alleged members of the outlawed group National Action. All six deny belonging to the group.


Prosecutors say Renshaw planned to kill both Cooper and a police officer who had previously interviewed him about alleged race-hate offenses.


Prosecutor Duncan Atkinson said Renshaw's goal was "to kill for National Action and White Jihad," and to "revenge himself on those he considered to be persecuting him."
