    Bowie was quoted as saying: "Britain is ready for a fascist leader... I think Britain could benefit from a fascist leader.

    After all, fascism is really nationalism... I believe very strongly in fascism, people have always responded with greater efficiency under a regimental leadership."

    He was also quoted as saying: "Adolf Hitler was one of the first rock stars" and "You've got to have an extreme right front come up and sweep everything off its feet and tidy everything up."

    I think Bowie was coming out with this Hitler stuff during his cocaine period and when he was trying to get off it in Berlin. Cocaine and National Socialism have a sort of natural affinity with each other. Marijuana tends to make a person more Liberal.

    People say silly things when they are drunk or high.

    John Lennon and Paul Mc Carthy had genuine sympathy for Provies coming out of their Liverpool backgrounds, I wouldn't be an admirer of either but it was real- Bowie I doubt it. Bowie comes across as someone who never took anything seriously- whatever about really supporting the PIRA the Hitler stuff on a real level is unbelievable.

    Bowie was an intelligent individual, and very well read. He used to bring his library around with him. The stuff he was saying the late 70s about Liberalism being rotten and the need for something to replace it may well have been drug influenced - but it was still true.

    I read years ago Bowie's folks were in the BUF.

    I haven't read any corroborating evidence for that since then mind you.
