Having become disillusioned with mainstream politics, became the leader of the British Union of Fascists (BUF).

Mosley was not knighted, but he was the sixth baronet, with a title that had been in his family for more than a century at his father's death in September 1928.

During the 1930s Mosley led Britain's virulently anti-Semitic fascist movement, whose streetfighters – known as blackshirts – were notorious for their violence against Jews and left-wing opponents.

He was on friendly terms with Mussolini and Hitler was guest of honour at his second wedding.

Mosley formed the British Union of Fascists (BUF) in 1932, blending his economic programme with explicit anti-Semitism.

They were married from 1936 until his death in 1980.
