Kristian 'Varg' Vikernes, the Norwegian neo-Nazi arrested in France in July, is considering returning to Norway to start "a proper nationalist party".
 
The former black metal musician attacked Norway's Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg for being the "Ashkenazic Jewish" leader of an "extremist" party in a post on his blog. 
 
"Norway is completely messed up by this gang of lying, often foreign, coward, communist thugs, but thankfully there is a huge abyss between them and their genocidal politics and the will of the people," he wrote. "I seriously consider returning home to start a proper nationalist party in Norway."
 
Vikernes was arrested in July at his home in France for on suspicion of planning "a large terrorist attack" modelled on that of the far-right extremist Anders Breivik. 
 
He was released two days later when the authorities could find no evidence which would justify prosecution. 
 
Vikernes, one-time guitarist for the black metal band Burzum, was released in 2009 after spending 21 years in prison in Norway for murdering Øystein Aarseth, the guitarist of Mayhem, a rival band.
