    A ginger-haired right wing fanatic wanted to kill Princes Charles in the hope that flame haired Prince Harry would become king, a court heard.Mark Colborne, 37, wanted to “put a bullet in Charles’ head” using a sniper rifle “for the Aryan people”.Loner Colborne is accused of planning a cyanide attack on ethnic minorities because he felt “belittled” by being white and having ginger hair.But he also discussed killing the heir to the throne in a notebook seized from his house, the Old Bailey heard.In it, he wrote: “I don't want to be a serial killer. I'm more of an Anders Breivik (the Norwegian mass killer). I have left potential targets open."I was waiting for an opportunity to kill one of them. LET it be Prince Charles which would be good."He added: "Take up a good position and put a bullet in Charles's head."He is protected but not too protected. I would sacrifice my life for that one shot. Kill Charles and William and Harry become king. Kill the tyrants."In another note, he said: "The first chance I would get with a rifle if he crosses my path is to murder Prince Charles."• Poor man's James Bond planned cyanide killings because of his ginger hair, court hearsColborne also ranted about the killers of black teenager Stephen Lawrence as they were sent to jail, prosecutor Annabel Darlow QC said.In one entry dated 20 May 2012 he said: “I want to perform strategic coordinated different attacks on the systems tyrants and tyrants in and around the septic island.”The following year he wrote about finding information about building “nerve gases which are as deadly as small-yield nukes”.Colborne added: “'I'm stuck between committing mass destruction using a weapon of mass destruction and just targeting tyrants.“I have often wanted to smear on toxin on their door handles that in time seeps through their skin and kills them but doing it to more than one neighbour would arouse suspicion.”Colborne fantasised about transforming from a ginger-haired victim into a military terrorist, the court heard.He wrote in his diary on 28 April 2013: "I want my legacy to say that I fought a one man war against the capitalist regime."I want them to see my transition from poor red-haired victimised minority that is constantly walked over to a fully transformed military terrorist striking at the hearts of the bigoted tyrannical rulers and of course the dark haired dark eyes Caucasian race."I will be heard through terror."The court had heard how Colborne, who suffered from depression and agoraphobia, trawled the Internet for explosives and poisons.He went on to acquire chemicals over the Internet forming the essential ingredients for the deadly poison cyanide as well as stockpiling dust masks, metal filter funnels, plastic syringes and latex gloves, jurors were told.But in June last year, his half brother Kevin Colborne alerted police after he uncovered the chemicals and papers detailing Colborne's racial hatred stashed amid the clutter of his room at the family home in Southampton in June last year.The prosecutor said Colborne had a "troubled" childhood and saw himself as marginalised because he was a white, ginger-haired male.Colborne denies preparing terrorist acts.The trial continues.

    Really? I mean, really?

    It really saddens me that many people in this country are so tribal about politics that they've lost all sense of proportion

    Is this coming from the idiot who spammed us with awful pro-Labour threads before the election about how the Tories want to roast our babies

    By spam, you presumably mean "post"? They are not synonyms. And the definition of spam is not "Something with which I disagree"

    Interesting also that as soon as someone pulls you up on your exaggerations, you become abusive and start playing the man and not the ball

    how the Tories want to roast our babies
    The fact your mind interprets fairly ordinary, political criticism based on specific policies as "Tories want to roast our babies" just underlines the level of tribal hysteria that passes for intelligent political analysis / debate in your mind, hence your comparing Labour frontbenchers to terrorists

    By holding onto such distorted and extreme views of anyone who disagrees with you politically, you are essentially condemning yourself to live in a political echo chamber or circle jerk. Personally, I strongly disagree with many Tory policies, but I have never described Conservatives or their supporters as mentally ill / traitors / terrorists or any of the other hysterical descriptions that are so common from political tribalists.

    I have close friends who are conservatives; while disagreeing with their policy prescriptions, I accept that they believe that their policies are the most efficient and effective way of attaining the best outcomes / greatest level of overall happiness and utility. Equally, while disagreeing with my politics and policy prescriptions, they accept that I believe that mine are the optimal way to achieve the greatest levels of overall happiness and utility.

    This fairly ordinary adherence to basic levels of social and political courtesy, and a certain maturity in dealing with people with whom you have political disagreements, is obviously beyond you. You actually remind me of a cybernat

    Our countries are bombarded with people who make up a much larger population than ours, yet they are called ethnic minorities.

    It's like calling a Chinese person or an Indian an ethnic minority. Hello look at the population of those countries and their population around the world.

    White's with their diverse many ethnic groups are the real ethnic minorities.
