The Founder. Dan Rayner founded the alpha-version of English news back in September of 2013 with the Nationalist Asatru News which became English News in 2015. English News due to circumstances at the time, developed primarily as a private English Nationalist meeting group network in the UK at the expense of the website entirely from 2015-2019 partly as a policy of avoiding attention. English News as a website was reactivated in 2019 briefly under the leadership of Rayner. Rayner used the website to organise an internal election for the English Asatru meeting groups in June of 2019 in which he handed leadership over to the newly elected leader on the Summer Solstice of 2019. Rayner is owed all the credit for the inception of this platform, its survival for over 7 years and the re-kindling of the ideas of the English Reclamation movement and the accelerated revival of Anglo-Saxon paganism through English Asatru.
Rayner’s genetic test result shows he is racially pure: 100% North Western European: Specifically 51% British Isles. 25% German, 24% Netherlands & Norman French area. Dan Rayner is a real person who wrote using his real and worthy name. Rayner is currently not actively involved in writing for English News.
