A neo-Nazi couple who named their baby after Adolf Hitler have been jailed, following their conviction for belonging to banned terrorist group National Action.
This is despite neither of them being German, blonde or blue-eyed. Not quite matching up to Hitler’s ideals then…
Birmingham Crown Court heard that Adam Thomas and Claudia Patatas gave their child the middle name Adolf in “admiration” of Hitler.
The couple defended their actions by saying they that they had initially intended to name their child after Donald Trump, having been impressed by his remarkable displays of fascist behaviour and his commendable hard-line attitude towards anyone with a different skin colour.
They changed their minds, however, when a chocolate stain on the upper lip combined with his first few hairs having fallen into a combover – giving the infant a passing resemblance to Hitler, a man they’d always admired ‘for his sexy appearance, on-fleek fashion sense and organisational capability’.
Thomas was jailed for six years and six months, and Patatas for five years.
Patatas was given a lighter sentence – the judge explained – because her surname literally means ‘potato’ in Spanish, and this tickled him somewhat as it aptly described her IQ.
