A "Miss Hitler" beauty contestant accused of being a "neo-Nazi terrorist" said MP Jo Cox, who was murdered by a hardcore nationalist activist in 2016, could "rot in hell", a court heard.

Here is the full report from the left-wing biased Daily Mail:

Messages alleged to have been sent by Alice Cutter, 22, to Alex Deakin, a convicted member of National Action, reveal she celebrated the killing, writing: ‘Rot in hell, b****’.

She is also said to have sent a 'kill, kill, kill' text to her boyfriend after talking about gassing synagogues, Birmingham Crown Court heard today.

Cutter, who is accused of being a member of banned group National Action, received messages from her partner Mark Jones about how to make lethal chlorine gas from household chemicals in texts between them on June 22, 2016.

Replying, she said: 'Oh my god, f*** f***, this could be done to synagogues.'

Writing in capitals, she then messaged Jones: 'Yes, yes, yes. Kill, kill, kill.'

Cutter, 22, and Jones, 24, both deny being members of the banned organisation - but Jones admitted to the court today he was a 'seven out of 10' Nazi fanatic.

The exchange came to light during evidence being given by Jones at the court today.

The court heard Cutter, replying to Jones, said: 'So potentially, this stuff could be bottled, corked and thrown through someone's window to gas them to death?'

Her boyfriend replied: 'Yes and no - it would work but you would need it on a much bigger scale to do any real damage.

'You're better off mixing them and locking someone in a room.'

National Action was banned in December 2016 and it was branded a 'vile, racist, homophobic and antisemitic group, which glorifies violence and stirs up hatred' by then home secretary Amber Rudd.

It was declared a proscribed group by Ms Rudd following the group’s support of the murder of Batley and Spen MP Jo Cox.

When asked whether he was shocked by his partner’s statement about Mrs Cox, Jones said: ‘I was surprised she was so abrupt in her opinion.

‘The murderer of Jo Cox has, through his single action and deliberate murder, undone anything positive that nationalism had previously done or could ever do.

‘We are forever tainted by this. I absolutely oppose MPs being murdered for their political views.'

Jones told jurors the conversation about chlorine gas had been sparked by the products Cutter had been using to 'clean her bathroom'.

Prosecuting barrister Barnaby Jameson QC asked: 'The conversation appears to have moved away from cleaning a bathroom.

'Or is it, Mr Jones, that you actually hate Jews and would wish them dead?'

Jones replied: 'No, otherwise, I would have said that.'

He previously told the jury he was an 'admirer' of Hitler and had a special wedding gift edition of the Nazi leader's autobiography Mein Kampf.

The jury have also heard his girlfriend, Cutter, had entered a 'Miss Hitler' contest under the name 'Buchenwald Princess'.

Her name referenced the infamous Nazi concentration camp where tens of thousands, many of them Jews, met their deaths during the Second World War.

Giving evidence from the witness box, Jones rated himself as 'probably a seven', on a hypothetical chart of how fanatical a National Socialist supporter he was - with Hitler at 10.

Jones also said he posed for a photo with another man, both giving a Nazi-type salute, and with the National Action flag unfurled, while inside the execution room at Buchenwald concentration camp.

The other man in the photograph was group co-founder Alex Davies, Jones told the jury.

Asked why he was making that salute in a concentration camp, Jones replied: 'Because it is a controversial statement.'

Jones also explained he had taken a photo in the room housing the ovens where Buchenwald's dead victims were burned, as it was 'just somewhere to take a selfie'.

He added there was 'no particular reason' he chose the location.

Mr Jameson then asked: 'Mr Jones, you're a Remainer, a vegan, you follow some tenets of Hinduism - what are you doing in the crematorium at Buchenwald, with Alex Davies?'

Jones replied: 'We stopped off to look around.'

The defendant told jurors that a photo showing a man with his face inside the oven was Mr Davies.

The Crown's barrister then asked Jones: 'I suggest to you the oven in which Alex Davies has his head is where victims of Nazi genocide, their bodies would have been burned, do we agree about that?

'And they would have been burned, without putting too fine a point on it, into ash.'

Jones replied: 'Well they wouldn't have been burned into anything else.'

He described that trip to Germany in 2016 as a 'holiday with a political motive', revealing he was stopped at Leipzig airport for 'explosives testing' by the German authorities before flying home.

Jones also described the chatroom name 'Grandaddyterror', which he used to chat on Telegram, as a 'post-ironic' handle.

When asked about his membership of the 'Inner' group on the Telegram chat platform, Jones said: 'To talk to people who were previously members of National Action is not a criminal offence.'

Giving his views on other far right groups, Jones said: 'I loathed the English Defence League to some degree and I thought the National Front were completely useless in terms of political momentum.'

When asked about a message he is alleged to have posted on Telegram in 2017 in which he discusses further 'banner drops, graffiti throw-ups and video promo shooting', Jones said the post was in reference to national socialism in general rather than National Action.

Barnaby Jameson QC, prosecuting, referenced a conversation in the Triple K Mafia chat group after the ban in which a user asked the question 'would you kill mixed race children?'.

Co-defendant Garry Jack, 23, is alleged to have posted in response 'bad place to discuss this really', and Jones is alleged to have posted 'best answer yet'.

When asked about it, Jones said: 'I meant it was best not to indulge in these hypothetical situations that stupid people were putting forward.'

The jury heard from Mr Jameson that many of the other members of that chat group were now 'admitted or convicted' National Action neo-Nazi terrorists.

On one occasion, an image of what was described in court as a 'starving Jew' with the caption 'Jew, why you no eat food?' was shared in the group chat.

Asked why he was a member of a group that shared such images, Jones replied: 'Because it is relevant to our humour.'

Jones and Cutter, of Sowerby Bridge, near Halifax, West Yorkshire, are on trial alongside Garry Jack, 23, of Birmingham, and 18-year-old Connor Scothern, of Nottingham, who both deny the same charge.

The trial continues.
