We reject the imperialist wars! [embedded content] What are the politics of the British army? Since the Iraq War, the UK military has tried to improve its image by presenting itself as inclusive, diverse and non-political.

With death threats against left-wing leader Jeremy Corbyn and active recruitment of former soldiers to far-right groups, we investigate how this institution seems to be an incubator for far-right extremists. Afghanistan veteran and journalist Joe Glenton turns the lens on the UK military and speaks to veterans, paramilitaries, and victims about what this institution represents.
