Jurors at Birmingham Crown Court have heard how a new mother living in Banbury who held far-right views let her partner pose with her baby in a Ku Klux Klan outfit.

Claudia Patatas, 38, whose new-born was given the middle name ‘Adolf,’ was alleged last week to have told a fellow traveller that “all Jews must be put to death”.

Prosecutors say Patatas and her 22-year old partner Adam Thomas were members of the banned far-right group National Action, and that Thomas can be seen posing with the baby wearing the Klan’s infamous robes. They said he believed “all non-whites are intolerable”.

Police found an assortment of weapons in their home, together with swastika-shaped kitchen appliances and a poster on their fridge reading: “Britain is ours – the rest must go.” Another card featured KKK figures with the words “may all your Christmases be white”.

Other photos presented to jurors include Patatas and an unnamed man posing with her baby and a Confederate flag, with the man performing a ‘Heil Hitler’ salute.

Prosecutors describe the pair and a third defendant as “fanatical, highly motivated, energetic, closely linked and mobile,” with “a similar interest in ethnic cleansing, with violence if necessary”.

When National Action was banned, they are alleged to have set up a similar group called TripleK Mafia, described as National Action “in all but name”. The case continues.
