  • GREAT BRITAIN: Mirroring a trend seen across Europe, Britain’s far-right threat is growing at alarming pace.  Indeed, more so than other extremist outfits, right-wing groups have seized the COVID-19 crisis to propagate their malign message, experts say. “The far-right especially have done an excellent job of taking advantage of the racist sentiments that have come with coronavirus,” according to the Royal United Services Institute think tank. Individuals caught in a cycle of unemployment and lack of prospects are often more susceptible to this sort of disinformation, analysts argue, raising concerns that a post-pandemic economic downturn could also heighten the radicalization risk.
