Henry Hamilton Beamish (1893-1948) was an Irish-born leading British anti-Semite. He founded The Britons as a propaganda organization and became involved in local politics on an anti-immigrant platform. He was among the earliest developers of the Madagascar Plan for Jewish deportation to Palestine and rather dubiously claimed to have influenced Adolf Hitler. For a time he served as Vice-President of the Imperial Fascist League. He settled in Southern Rhodesia but was eventually interned for his pro-Nazi sentiments.
