The jury was told that Thomas and Patatas gave their child the middle name “Adolf”, which Thomas said was in “admiration” of Hitler, and the couple had swastika cushions in their home. The pair had a long history of violent racist beliefs, said the judge, Melbourne Inman QC, and both had claimed they were “willing to murder a mixed-race child” to further their neo-Nazi agenda. They affirmed “all Jews must be put to death.” Bothwere members of the far-right organisation National Action, which was banned in 2016. Adam Thomas, 22, and Claudia Patatas, 38, were jailed for six years and six months, and five years respectively. Six people were sentenced on Tuesday for being members of the group, which the judge described as having horrific goals.

Thomas was a former Amazon security guard and twice-failed army applicant. It was also convicted on a majority verdict of having a terrorist manual , a copy of the bomb-making guide known as the Anarchist’s Cookbook. Patatas was a wedding photographer originally from Portugal, dreaming to “bring back concentration camps”. The judge revealed the group wanted “the overthrow of democracy in this country by serious violence and murder, and the imposition of a Nazi-style state which would eradicate whole sections of society by such violence and mass murder.”
