I wonder how a UK version of the Iron Front - anti Nazi, anti Monarchist, anti Communist German organisation would fit into the VBCW world.

Well, it was a SPD (Germany Socialist Party) that, as you say, was anti-fascist and anti-communist. The Labour Party would be its British equivalent, but neither the BUF or the CPGB ever look remotely likely to come to power, so there was no need for it in Britain. However, in the radicalised world of VBCW, who knows? The three arrow symbol was designed to be drawn or painted over the swastika. See examples below.

I wonder if there is the same differentiation between Democratic Socialist (Most of the Labour Party Members, Marxist but not Marxist Leninist), Social Democrat (Most of the PLP) and Revolutionary Socialist (Militant Tendency & other Trotskyist Groupings)?

I like this as a new faction. Possible banner with just a few minutes with simple drawing program. Someone with artist skill and photo shop could do a nice job.

That poster is brilliant!

I think the fact that Weimar Germany had Proportional Representation meant that there were small far-left groups and other parties, that could get a few MPs elected to the Reichstag. This meant that there was no need for diverse ideologies to merge into one big party as we see in Britain.
