BNP – a little too close to home

Disappointing news from Worcestershire today. Until this week, the BNP had seen fit to leave my town alone, preferring to stick to the more industrial Black Country area west of Birmingham. As I said, that is until this week.

I found out today,via a screaming front-page headline in our local paper, that a BNP candidate would be standing for election to Worcestershire County Council. I don’t want the BNP in my town, I hate the idea that a district of Kidderminster will be represented by Tony Gervis and his fascist cronies.

As I mentioned before, this has made the front page of our local paper, the Kidderminster Shuttle, who even managed to get a few words from Simon Darby on the subject – honestly, how this man sleeps at night I don’t know?

Take this as an example:

“We don’t want immigration to turn Kidderminster into a place like Handsworth or Lozells in Birmingham. What About English people and their rights?”

I should point out at this moment that the population of Kidderminster and it’s surrounding areas are probably 98% white British. This is bullshit of the highest order from Darby, and whilst I’m not surprised, I am disgusted by the very fact that he’s even been in the area recently.

Now, all this is bad enough, it really is. Until that is you take a look to see which ward Gervis will be contesting, and more importantly, who the opposition is.

This is where the BNP really come into their own. We have one Asian candidate in the area, Mr Mumshad Ahmed, from the Conservatives, and it wouldn’t take a genius to work out where the BNP candidate has been parachuted into. As I said, this shouldn’t come as a great surprise, these are quite normal tactics from the BNP; however, this shouldn’t detract from how despicable these tactics are,not withstanding the fact the their candidate lives at least twenty miles from Kidderminster.

The time for action in Kidderminster is now. The BNP can not be allowed to gain a foothold in this area, something that frightens me the most.

I have began to speak to the other local parties – unity now is more important than ever, and I’m hopeful that I can persuade the other candidates to provide a united front on this one subject.

This Saturday, I will be taking part in a HOPE not hate day of action in Worcester -I’m hopeful that some of those involved can be persuaded to join my fight in Kidderminster to rid the town of people such as Darby and Gervis.

Bob from the BNP – Part Three

So, readers, here we are with the third and final instalment of my charming email correspondence with ‘Bob’, from one of the regional BNP offices in London. As you will know, the resourceful Bob obtained details of my email address, and proceeded to send me several hateful, but equally pathetic emails.

Below, you will the third and final email, in it’s full glory:

So, is this just pathetic attempt to put the wind up a thirty five year old part time activist, or should I be worried about this at all? To be honest, my first natural reaction is fucking anger – how fucking dare they send me shit like this!

I’ve yet to decide how to reply – any ideas?!

Bob from the BNP – Part Two

I’ve been receiving some fairly hateful emails from one of the BNP offices based in London this week, and I’m sorry to say that even after a polite request for these to cease, (stupid, I know) – they still seem to be continuing.

Take today’s email for example: Reasons to Vote BNP and Muslims Hate Gays – yet another tour de force of lies and bullshit.

Once again, this shows the subversive and desperate measures that the BNP will take in order to obtain votes at the expense of the disillusioned voter.

This extract from the email is a good example:

The Anti-Democratic organisation Searchlight is ordering the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community not to vote for the BNP through its front group “Hope Not Hate”.

This follows Harriet Harman’s venom filled interview with PinkNews.co.uk, she said: “the BNP are homophobic and reactionary”, amongst the usual smears. This is the same woman who once favoured making sexually explicit child porn photos or films legal — as long as the kids were not harmed.

She also wanted the age of consent lowered to 14 and incest to be decriminalised.

Further proof that we must all stand together to defeat the BNP.

Working together to stop the BNP

Good article in the Guardian today by Peter Hain with regards to the challenge we all face in defeating the BNP and the far-right.

This time last year I posted a blog commenting on how the main political parties were being far too complacent in their handling of the BNP. For a long time it has seemed all too easy to ignore them, or treat them as a minor annoyance. Twelve months later, here we are facing the very real prospect of the BNP gaining seats at the Euro elections in June; a risk that we have to all take very seriously.

Now, more then ever, the time has now arrived for unity amongst our three major parties. This has to happen at national and at a local level; there needs to be a clear agreement as to the best way to confront this problem head on, and in Labour’s case, on how to reconnect with a section of our local support who now feel more aligned to the BNP and their dressed up policies.

The old ways of protest no longer work, no amount of shouting or banner waving is going to seriously damage their chances next month or beyond. The second part of the answer remains at grass root level, we need to be out there, on the doorsteps challenging the BNP’s policies at each and every opportunity,showing people the truth behind the spin, and more importantly, reconnecting with the white, working class vote before we lose them for good.

The problem is real and growing, the challenge is there. We must all face this head on, work together, and hopefully make some real progress in our communities and the country as a whole.

Just imagine the prospect of BNP Euro MP’s….

‘Bob’ from the BNP

Just a quick post….

It’s always nice when you have look at your emails to discover that some idiot from the BNP has come across your email address. I would therefore like to thank ‘Bob’ from the BNP in London for sending me a load of racist bullshit to read today, one of which was entitled “The Media and Global Jihad” – a most interesting read.

Anyway, I thought it would be the polite thing to do to reply to him, so I have. Oh, and here are his contact details, just in case you feel like saying ‘hello’….;.

Buffoon Barnbrook’s Blogging Bonanza

In recent weeks I’ve been impressed, if not a little obsessed, by the continued steam of stupidity appearing on the blog of Nadine Dorries. I must admit that it has become an entertaining part of my daily routine, even if this does leave me a little ashamed.

However, I’m pleased, (alarmed), to see that an even bigger buffoon has entered the blogging world. Step forward Mr Richard Barnbrook – BNP London Assembly member.

It’s been widely reported this week that Barnbrook now has a blogging profile on the Daily Telegraph website, even so I was a little late in getting chance to look at it following my failed attempts to get Marriella Frostrup to agree to marry me whilst at the Hay Festival.

Ballet loving Barnbrook has only had chance to post a few blogs so far – however, I’m sure you’ll all agree that he’s obviously started in the way that he means to go on. For example; take two of his chosen topics: ‘Lilly Allen and the BNP’, and the tour de force that is ‘Blame the Immigrants’.

The latter is a hate filled rant that is simply abhorrent. However, as a supporter of free speech, I do feel that groups such as the BNP should be given a platform to air their views; to suppress them only makes their case stronger. One could argue that a national newspaper should not be allowing individuals such as Barnbrook the opportunity to air such disgraceful views – one only has to look at some of the comments from his supporters to see what the true views of the BNP faithful really are.

What really is disgusting is Barnbrook’s behaviour following the tragic death of Robert Knox in Sidcup. In front of his own camera crew and speaking in front of a group of the victims friends, Barnbrook said that:

“This is a sickening situation and it is primarily down to people coming to this country… the majority 75% (of murders) are done by ethnic minorities and when only 33% come from ethnic minorities, the figures speak for themselves.”

Coming after the half-crazed rant on his blog, it seems that there really are no levels to which the BNP won’t stoop in order to gain publicity.

Barnbrook even gives out what is supposedly his own mobile phone number so that supporters can contact him if they want to attend a meeting outside City Hall.

Pathetic.

Barnbrook is an idiot, but he’s also a dangerous idiot. The way to fight the BNP is not to censor them; this will only play straight into their hands.
