John Morse (born 1951) is a British political activist involved with the far-right. He was a leading figure in the British National Party under John Tyndall, serving alongside Richard Edmonds as Tyndall's closest ally in the party.
His alliance with Tyndall began when Morse supported his leadership of the National Front and continued when he was a founder of the New National Front. In the BNP, Morse served as editor of the party newspaper British Nationalist. Tyndall and Morse were imprisoned in 1986 for publishing material relating to racial hatred for a year, although the two men only served four months. In 1994 Morse and Edmonds were both charged with causing violent disorder after a black man was struck with a glass in Bethnal Green.
Morse was expelled from the BNP in 2002 and, although he was later reinstated, he is no longer involved in the party. In 2015 the Daily Mail reported that, along with other far-right veterans including Edmonds, Martin Webster and Michèle Renouf, Morse attended an event at a central London hotel where key speakers included Holocaust deniers Pedro Varela Geiss and Mark Weber.
Apart from his political activities, Morse worked as a bus driver.
