What's right when writing about the 'Far Right'?

Please define ‘Far Right’

Dear Members of Press & Media Organisations

The Media's coverage of the notion of 'Far Right' would be comical if it was not so deadly serious.

For the past couple of years it would appear that the Mainstream Media and journalists have created an entire sub-industry around screeching or printing the unqualified phrase ‘Far right’. The Media seem obsessed with ‘finding the Far right’; but far less clear about defining what ‘far right’ (ideology) might actually mean; what the ‘checklist’ is, as it were – hence my article here today. 

My request: In your role as journalist / news organisation, I would be most keen to read your succinct definition of the phrase: “Far right

Currently, it could look to the outsider, that unless a person is either: a loudly self-promoting & self-defining ‘socialist’, member of Labour’s Momentum, a full Europhile/open boarders extremist , somebody desperate to genuflect towards Islam (to demonstrate how ‘woke’ they are) - or in fact all of the above -, then via the media a person, it seems, can legitimately be a target of the weaponised dog whistle word ‘Far Right; and potentially have their life destroyed.

However, we note with interest Labour's deep opposition to the State of Israel and apparent disdain of all things Jewish does not qualify them to be viewed as 'far right'; your thoughts on this matter also would also be illuminating!

This is a serious request, if you could if you could email me back with your ‘easy for us all to follow Far Right definition’ we would be most grateful and it would be most useful.

Yours in eager anticipation
