Cottage Given Two Years

With thanks to 5cc in comments:

A former British National Party (BNP) candidate who stored a collection of explosive chemicals at his home has been jailed for two-and-a-half years.

Robert Cottage, 49, of Talbot Street, in Colne, Lancashire, had pleaded guilty to possessing the chemicals.

Police found the stockpile at his home, which he had been hoarding in anticipation of a civil war.

Cottage was cleared after two trials at Manchester Crown Court of conspiracy to cause explosions.

He has already served more than 10 months in jail and is likely to be free within six months.

Six months?? Remember that the next time a Muslim house is raided for 'chemical explosives'.
