HATE, My Life in the British Far Right, A new book by Matthew Collins foreword by Billy Bragg

All proceeds from copies bought from HOPE not hate will go to the Searchlight Educational Trust.

Highly disturbing, this is the remarkable true story of one man's journey from the darkness of British fascism, and the price he had to pay. A kind of real-life "This Is England", reflecting the violence and intolerance of 1980's working class Britain. Foreword by Billy Bragg.

Price £10.24 inc p&p

We have a number of copies signed by the author, please check the dropdown list to "signed" if you would like one of them.



"Fascinating memoir....peppered with bizarre and often achingly funny paragraphs."

Belfast Telegraph

"Hard hitting and often darkly comic prose of the years he spent with those who planned world domination."

Metro (book of the week)

"Unashamedly bawdy, always witty, often dark."

Sunday World

"A tale told with humour, with nothing left sacrosanct"

Morning Star

"Kicking in the heads of old ladies at a public meeting in a library [is] an event he details with chilling candour"

Brisbane Times

"A story of smoky pubs, drunken punch-ups, mindless hooliganism and paranoid conspiracy...a timely riff on the past 25 years of the UK far right."

The Independent

"He’s pulled no punches. If he’s got a guest list, you’ll wanna be on it."

Billy Bragg

"Hate is Matthew’s personal story, brilliantly told, incredibly funny and occasionally bawdy. Reading it leaves a lump in the throat at times, because it will confront you, as Matthew has confronted me on numerous times, personally! Finding the far-right camped out in Barking and Dagenham was a wake up call to me. If you do not have the benefit of Matthew Collins sitting on your sofa, eating your food and criticising your politics and wall paper, buy his book instead. The arguments are far from over."
