An unfortunate faux pas occurred yesterday at St Timothy’s primary school in Rochdale.

Gareth Brown, a year 5 pupil was sent home after arriving at school dressed in full Waffen SS regalia.

We contacted Gareth’s father, Mr Trevor Brown, who said the following “As an ex BNP candidate and regional leader of Combat 18 for Rochdale, I was proper chuffed when Gareth said he wanted to go to school as a Storm Trooper.

Seems he meant one of those guys from Star Wars Must say I’m a little disappointed, “I thought reading him passages from Mein Kampf every night was finally making an impression.”
