A 'Ginger Extremist' Wanted To Launch A Terror Attack To Make Prince Harry King

Just let that headline sink on.

A ginger man, named Mark Colborne, who could also fairly accurately be described as a ‘Ginger Extremist’ apparently plotted to assassinate Prince Charles and Prince William so that ginger-haired Prince Harry could take the throne.

It’s an assassination attempt even more ludicrous than those seen in Game of Thrones, but life is often stranger than fiction.

Colborne reportedly felt alienated due to his white skin and ginger hair and believed that the attack would be “for the Aryan people.”

According to notes found in his diary, the foiled assassin empathised with Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik and planned to kill Prince Charles using a high powered “silent” sniper rifle.

Along with his handwritten terror plans he also bought the ingredients for cyanide, stockpiled dust masks, metal filter funnels, syringes and latex gloves.

Colborne was caught in June last year after his brother uncovered his stash and papers detailing his racial hatred in his bedroom at their family home in Southampton.

It was revealed that Colborne had written the following his diary:

"I’m looking for major retribution, a mass terrorist attack which will bring to the attention our pain, not just mine but my brothers around the world. I don’t want to be a serial killer. I’m more of an Anders Breivik. I have left potential targets open.

"I was waiting for an opportunity to kill one of them. Let it be Prince Charles which would be good. Take up a good position and put a bullet in Charles’s head. He is protected but not too protected. I would sacrifice my life for that one shot. Kill Charles and William and Harry become king. Kill the tyrants."

During his retrial at the Old Bailey after an earlier jury failed to reach a verdict in May, Colborne was found guilty of preparing terrorist acts after 14 hours of deliberation from the jury.

Although the jury rejected the allegations that he would have actually carried out his attack. Judge John Bevan QC adjourned sentencing to Tuesday November 3, commenting that it was a ‘very strange case,’ involving a ‘very strange person.’

We agree.
