The judge added: "In your drunken state what you said and the way you behaved would have been both offensive and put persons in fear."

In addition to the 33-week sentence, the man was disqualified from driving for three years.

However, Zakrocki is likely to walk free from Wormwood Scrubs after serving his time on remand.

"During the course of that evening he assaulted his wife, drove off in his work vehicle, insulted a series of passers-by and then drove his vehicle at the owner of a curry house, breaking the window of the restaurant," he said.

"It's plain that his conduct is very likely to have been motivated by his views about our diverse society."

Zakrocki, who was drunk on wine, grabbed his wife's arm and threatened to "kill people" and himself before going on his rampage around Harrow, during which he made a Nazi salute and pushed and chased the unknown man around a shopping centre.

His family alerted police, who called the man. Zakrocki told an officer on the phone: "I'm going to kill a Muslim. I'm doing it for Britain.

"This is how I'm going to help the country. You people cannot do anything."

Police later stopped Zakrocki who had a Nazi coin in his pocket and a stash of Britain First flyers at his home in Harrow.

Richard Furlong, defending, said his client was "not racist" and "plainly somebody who has a lengthy history of alcohol abuse".
