Peter Morgan, a far-right activist, was convicted in Scotland of preparing acts of terrorism after being found with a bomb-making kit in his flat, along with antisemitic, anti-Muslim and neo-Nazi materials.
The literature included Al Qaeda and IRA materials and a racist and antisemitic novel that inspired numerous historic terrorist attacks.
No target for the bombing was identified. Mr Morgan claimed that the bomb was going to be used to film a video of him blowing up a turkey for YouTube.
Lord Boyd of Duncansby, the presiding judge, stated that “over a period of five years”, Mr Morgan “amassed a collection of neo-Nazi, anti-Muslim, antisemitic and racist material.”
The High Court in Edinburgh jailed Morgan for twelve years and a further three years under licence.
