Sir: The Media Workers Against the Nazis (Letters, 13 April) identify the British National Party not just with fascism but with Nazism, and intend not just to expose its nature but to deny it freedom of expression.

Following this line of reasoning, it should be noted that some of the leading Media Workers Against the Nazis are well-known Marxists, and it should be remembered that most Marxist parties have used the amalgam technique to identify their opponents as fascists of one kind or another and that all Marxist regimes have used terrorist methods of arrest, imprisonment and murder against large numbers of their opponents. Indeed, Marxists of various kinds have probably been responsible for more human misery in the present century even than fascists and Nazis.

Yours faithfully,
