The views I've got now is, I believe in individualism and I don't care if anyone's black, Jewish or anything," he added.

Whereas the original skinheads in the late 1960s had borrowed the fashion of Caribbean immigrants and shared their love of ska and reggae music, a highly visible minority of skins during the movement's revival in the late 1970s were attaching themselves to groups like the resurgent National Front (NF). Rumours circulated that a prominent football hooligan and far-right activist had hurled a homophobic slur at Crane, who in response had inflicted a severe beating which the victim was lucky to survive.

In episodes of the twenty-first series prior to New Crane on the Dock, Big Mickey was always positioned facing away from the camera.

Big Mickey is the third character to have been given a face after debuting without one, the first two being Butch and Henrietta. He is best remembered for his fight with Harry the Dog, a notorious football hooligan, which many not only regard as the most bloody fight of the century, but one which occurred after Harry had turned up at his house with a shotgun threatening to blow his head off for injuries sustained during a previous encounter. According to Bushell, who had only recently left the Socialist Workers Party and still regarded himself at the time as a left-winger, the story was a "tissue of lies". It is the story of a rather unpleasant man who was at the heart of much of the violence that was dished out on people of colour and other ethnic groups throughout the 1970's and early 1980's. During the 1980s, says Healy, "gay Nazis were assumed to be left-wing even if they had Nazi tattoos".

As leader of the National Front Leaders Guard, a bunch of neo-Nazi thugs formed to protect their leader, John Tyndall, from Red Action and other left-wing scumbags, Crane was at the heart of much of the violence that was dished out on blacks and other people from ethnic minorities throughout the 1970s and early 1980s. Rather it seeks to demonstrate how dangerous the far right is to western democracy and civilisation as a whole. The gay skinhead night may simply have been an attempt to carve out a space for himself where he would not be challenged either for his sexuality or his politics. As Crane tried to make it over a barrier on to the stage, he was knocked over by a Red Action member.
