UK: ginger man accused of plotting to kill Prince Charles "for the sake of the Aryan people"

<p>Prosecutors in London have accused a man of planning terrorist attacks against “dark haired” people, including Prince Charles, as part of an extremist fantasy.</p> <p>Mark Colborne, 37, from Southampton is said to have been left feeling “marginalised and belittled by society because he is a white, ginger-haired male.” The allegation comes from Alison Darlow QC, who also told the Old Bailey criminal court that Colborne had written about his “racial hatred for those who are non-Aryan” and his plot to kill Prince Charles with a sniper rifle.</p> <p>The case goes back to June 2014, when Colborne’s mother and half-brother alerted police after finding chemicals and notes detailing his hate for “blacks and Caucasian idiots” in his bedroom.</p> <p>Police later uncovered that he had been searching the internet for ingredients for explosives and poison and books on how to make them.</p> <p>In his notebook, Colborne compares himself to Norwegian right-wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik and states “I’m looking for major retribution, a mass terrorist attack which will bring to the attention our pain – not just mine but my brothers around the world.”</p> <p>Colborne also details a plot to kill Prince Charles and is said to have written:</p> <p>“Take down a silent rifle, take up a good stalker position and put a bullet in Prince 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.”</p> <p>He adds: “I want them to see my transition from poor red-haired victimised minority that is constantly walked over to a fully transformed military terrorist.”</p> <p>Prosecutor Darlow told the Old Bailey Colborne is an agoraphobe who has suffered from depression. She said “He clearly had experienced a troubled childhood and perceived himself as marginalised and belittled by society because he was a white, ginger-haired male.”</p> <p>Colborne denies preparing terrorist acts. The trial continues.</p>
