ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the relationship between fascism and the state in Great Britain from 1917-1927. Wherever fascism made its appearance in the inter-war years it displayed a remarkable talent for mobilising the resources of the state in its support. Fascists adopted the radical right's vision of a true Conservatism with enthusiasm, and tariff reform, a united Empire and patriotic nationalism served as the basis of fascist ideology throughout the inter-war years. It is hardly surprising, then, that the radical right had close associations with British fascism more or less from the beginning. Some degree of collaboration also appears to have existed between the Fascisti and the Economic League. Ultimately, collusion on the scale that existed between 1919 and 1926 became unnecessary because the state's defensive apparatus was fully secured.
