This article explores the general nature of fascism in Britain during the interwar period and the various fascist groups that emerged, including the British Fascists (BF), the British Union of Fascists (BUF), and the Imperial Fascist League (IFL). It is designed to introduce readers to the general nature of fascism in the country in the 1920s and 1930s, and also touches briefly on the post-1945 period. It provides a case study of the fascist and anti-Semitic ideologue Arnold Leese (1878-1956) and the IFL, and analyses the nature of a creed that Leese himself termed 'Racial Fascism', and which bore many similarities to German Nazi ideas.
