Sven Longshank: ‘Racist’ radio DJ’s trial continues at Swansea Crown Court



THE TRIAL of James Allchurch, who has denied 15 charges of stirring up racial hatred via his podcasts, continued on Tuesday (Mar 21) at Swansea Crown Court.

Before recordings of his podcasts were played, His Honour Judge Huw Rees asked for Allchurch’s new address.

It was argued by the defence that giving out his address in public could lead to him becoming a target.

The court then heard a series of podcasts which included numerous references to ‘non-whites’, ‘outsiders’ and ‘blacks’.

The recordings opened with the song ‘Rule Britannia’ before Allchurch, under the alias of Sven Longshank, would talk through a series of issues, with a special guest.

The first podcast was called ‘Stand Up For Your Community’ which referenced ‘white communities’.

The pair spoke about the need for leadership in the community and that it should be an ‘affront’ to their honour when ‘outsiders’ came in.

They also spoke of the Rotherham child sexual exploitation scandal, for which five British-Pakistani men were among those sentenced.

The two on the podcast said that there were two different nations; those who did not have to fear being attacked and those who did.

They added that those who were worried felt ‘powerless’ to report any crimes against them for fear of being called a racist.

They spoke of being ‘failed’ by the ‘ruling elite’ and Allchurch went so far as to suggest they should ‘get’ a politician’s daughter raped by a ‘gang’ to see what would happen then.

The court then heard a second podcast entitled ‘Banned From The UK’.

In this, Allchurch made reference to the abuse of over 1000 children in Telford, referring to the attackers as ‘non-whites’ and ‘muslim savages’.

There were several references to a ‘race-war’ and Allchurch added that if the UK government hadn’t imported them, none of them (victims) would have been raped.

A third podcast started with Allchurch talking about comments made about Meghan Markle and the colour of her skin.

Discussion moved on to ethnicity, Sadiq Khan becoming Mayor of London before again making reference to ‘muslim grooming gangs’.

They also said that people were banned from speaking out about these gangs. Allchurch said: “They’re not stopping muslim rape groups, they are stopping those speaking out.”

The podcast ended with Allchurch stating that they needed to ‘wake up to the truths about race and preserving the white race’.

Galactic Triumph! Heritage Centre transforms for epic Falcon Fun Day



THE TOWERING figure of Chewbacca made a grand first time entry to Pembrokeshire on Bank Holiday Monday, starring in the second Falcon Fun Day at Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre.

The famous Star Wars character joined other re-enactors, including Darth Vader, Stormtroopers and Luke Skywalker, posing for countless photographs with the many hundreds of visitors who flocked to the centre in bright sunshine.

Starring inside the centre was R2-D2, the legendary droid from the Star Wars films. Re-enactors, from the 501st UK Garrison costuming group, travelled from across Wales and as far away as Milton Keynes to join in an event which is already becoming a firm favourite for Star Wars fans of all ages from a very wide area.
The Heritage Centre features a permanent exhibition telling the story of how the ‘Millennium Falcon’ spaceship was built in secret in a former RAF hangar in the 1970s for the Star Wars film ‘The Empire Strikes Back’.

Mark Williams, leader of the Falcon project, said: “The lightsaber training proved very popular all day and the virtual reality experience was a huge success. We are grateful to all the visitors for their support and patience as there were, at times, long queues. We shall be back again next year.”
