1st message.

Dear Jeddy


There are, surely, two main purposes to FaF.
The first is to save folk music (stricto sensu and neofolk) from becoming elided with the tree hugging texts of the Enoch Powell was right deniers and all-round scumbag rifleman and his neanderthal views. No doubt, since you are here, you have an active interest in folk music and folk dance and folk lore. Cara, are you a member of the Russ Meyer fan club ? Folk music is ours and we shall keep it BRITISH.

Secondly FaF is a publicity machine to ensure that those who have never saw or heard of a Russ Meyer film get off their backside and watch one.

Love
Richard Bridge

Just by way of reminder, this pathetic and peurile individual calling himself (in various places) "Robin Loxley" and posting foolish recastings of my words (with meanings that are antonyms of mine) is not me

Dear Cobblers

Please engage brain before putting mouth in gear.

There are, surely, two main purposes to FaF.

The first is to save folk music (stricto sensu and neofolk) from becoming elided with the racist texts of the neonazi holocaust denier and all-round scumbag Griffin and his neanderthal friends (who are daily cloning the identities of others on various forums and trying to smear their opponents as being racists and sexists too). No doubt, since you are here, you have an active interest in folk music and folk dance and folk lore, and you will recall that in the wake of the German Nazi Reich all German and Anglo-Saxon matters volklorisch became tainted with the poinonous doctrines of racial purity and supremacy and have not even yet recovered. Folk music is ours and you shall not have it.

Secondly FaF is a publicity machine to ensure that those who by inertia let the apes take a few seats see the horror that they have allowed near to our doors, and re-join civilisation to help it bar its gates against the true untermensch.

I do hope you can manage the big words.

rifleman charlie, what was that about? i am just saying that things are not always as they seem.

i, like you was disgusted that someone would ever join the BNP much less stand for election. there is no excuse not to know what they stand for.

however i am willing and wanting to believe that she has been somewhat brainwashed.

i am thinking that although i am trying to understand her motives, that she has had long enough to think about it and to gain a full picture of what they are like and what they intend to try to do.

i do not condone her actions or the towing of the party line, we all know what that is.

i am feeling somewhat conficted as i do not wish to be a reactionary bully, but would rather try to reason, i accept that in some cases(and i fear this is one)where a compromise cannot be reached.
but wasn't it worth a try?

if we could persaude the uncertain members of the party, then we would be able to turn their knowledge to our advantange, see the link that gervase made.

take care all

there might be more reasons than we know as to why she has joined them. i am against everything they stand for and want to see them brought down i have no wish to persecute someone who may have been pressured into something.

there is always another way but in the middle of a crisis she may not have been able to see it.

it would be so easy to scream and shout and a part of me just wants to do just that and shun her.

I PM'd her the questions yesterday. No reply.
But, as I've said, I ain't holding my breath...
There's also the chance that the BNP won't let her respond. Before the election the party high command issued a warning to members not to set up official party blogs in the run-up to this year's European elections because "they can't write proper English" and "get carried away with conspiracy theories".
The handbook said that some BNP members are "oddballs", "Walter Mitty characters", "compulsive liars" and "born troublemakers", and advised activists: "If you hear something odd or unpleasant about someone either forget about it or ask them about it to their face."
It added: "while we cannot stop individuals using the internet ... the BNP does not allow members or units to run websites or blogs which use the BNP logo or party name in their title, or which give the impression of being official BNP operations".
So poor George may find herself gagged by the proponents of free speech. It would be nice to know, one way or the other.

I've got mixed feelings about the HNH petition - I mean, I voted Green, so the Labour, Lib Dem, Tory and UKIP MEPs aren't there "in my name" either. The BNP MEPs are there in the name of their voters - that's how it works. But I think it's worth signing, just to show how much opposition there is.

And then, by way of complete contrast, there's this, part of a very bitter blog by someone who was once very close to Nick Griffin. It's not for the squeamish - when fascists fall out the gloves come off and the results are messy - but it does give a fascinating insight into the inner workings of the BNP. It's a lengthy read, but it should leave no-one in any doubt about the party and the filth that swills around in its darker corners.
Some of the well-sourced and corroborated revelations on the blog about Griffin and the BNP really should be more widely circulated, even if he has 'betrayed' National Socialism.

Just a few points arising.
I had wondered when Joe would move this to B/S. Although it IS imho directly about the music we love, it has turned a bit introverted of late.
My idea of signing as FAF Andy arose when chatting with another MBS person. We are proud of our standing in the British folk scene. The suspicion is that BNP tagged on to MBS George because of her "title" it certainly stirred us up.
Interestingly some who wish to converse with George already know her personally. I have known her since she was very much younger and would be very interested to find where she came by her, to me, repulsive views.
While it may be her "right" to continue to use the prefix MBS, I am not alone in now finding it insulting to many old friends.

I agree with WYSIWYG, though, that it would not be good for George for her to join in with open converstaion on a Mudcat thread.

In that case it is unlikely that she will respond - If I send/receive something via the PM service I do not then make those messages public. You won't gain anything by making that sort of statement- except perhaps tell people that you yourself have a low moral compass - PM = Private Message.
That's a pity. I would have thought that someone who was willing to stand on a public platform for election would feel able to make their views public. But if what you say is true, and George is unwilling to answer any questions about her views or even make a public endorsement of them, that's probably all the answer we actually need.
I said in advance that her answers to the questions would be published here, specifically to make her aware of that point, so your comment about 'low moral compass' is rather wide of the mark.
Anyway, I shall still send her the questions. But, as I've said before, I'm not holding my breath for a sudden onset of moral fibre.

WYSIWYG, it's the done thing in the UK for people that decide to enter the world of politics (which essentially involves wanting to tell other people what they can and cannot do), to be able to support their political views when questioned and challenged. George well knows this.

Whats more George is a big grown up lady, I'm sure she can make up her own mind whether or not she feels she is inclined to answer to robust questioning, without being patronised. It might be challenging for her to defend her political views, because she will receive some strongly supported arguments off of the many serious minded and extremely intelligent posters here. But, I for one would like to hear some of what she might have to say. Plus, I'm sure she's not so foolish as not to realise that she'll get much more 'robust' questioning than that found on a folk forum, if she proceeds much further in her political career. She's going to have to develop a very thick skin.

I might dislike the politics she stands for, and I do very much, but at least I recognise that she's an adult woman capable of quite strong self-determined action - as indeed her choices have already demonstrated. Your condescending Mumsy comments however, make her look as though she's a dribbling infant in need of burping!

I think moving this thread to BS is an excellent idea, Martin. I had considered it earlier, but there were a few messages in the beginning of the thread that made reference to music, so I left the thread in the music section.
I reviewed the last 150 messages in the thread and saw no reference to music at all, so I must conclude that this is a very thinly-disguised political thread. As far as I can see, the last significant mention of folk music in the thread was on June 20.
So, I've moved it to the non-music section.

This thread has become hopelessly unwieldy and appears to be being maintained as a form of publicity stunt i.e. to keep it near the head of the page and mark this site as being "anti-fascist". This is, no doubt, a holy and a wholesome thought - but its musical connections are marginal, despite all the protestations to the contrary.

I suggest it be moved to BS - despite the risk that those concerned will probably simply find another vehicle to carry their message here.

The same questions have been asked many times - they boil down to whether or not she agrees with the statements and actions of the BNP leadership over the years.
And for someone who has stood for election - in public - her reluctance to state her convictions here is strange. She only has to post once; there's no need for her to get involved in a lengthy tit-for-tat.
But, if it makes it easier, I will PM George the questions that have been asked. She can then take her time in answering them, and I will post the answers here on her behalf.

What planet are you on? How could you possibly expect one person to respond to a thread with over 700 posts. It would take a year or more as each question answered would throw up more questions in response. Your expectations are a little unrealistic.

If you are that desperate to speak to MBSG then maybe you should try posing your question(s) through the pm facility instead of continuing to make assumptions and comments with very public references to her.

A nice idea in principle, Peace, but George Dale actually started a thread here to admit "I am the BNP Candidate in Chippenham". A lot of questions were asked of her - many more in sorrow than in anger - and no answers have been forthcoming. Her last post before today was on June 9th.
I would have though that in the four weeks that have elapsed, she would have had time to compose a calm, unhurried and robust defence of her views which she could simply post as a coda that that thread. Or this one. Or as a new thread.
One of the things about seeking public office on a political ticket is being prepared to stick your head above the parapet wearing that ticket. And, seeing as George was the catalyst for the birth of Folk Against Fascism, her response to the points that have been made would be pretty interesting.
But, as I've said before, I'm not going to hold my breath...

I have encouraged (and will continue to encourage) MBSGeorge not to respond to these issues in this forum. Because as I have stated elsewhere, anyone in her situation needs room to THINK. No matter how urgent anyone else may be about the speed of that thinking process or their desire for a response.

...and BNPGeorge, I would relish an action for defamation. Do, please, bring it on. A quick Google will give you enough information to serve a writ.
Nothing would give me more pleasure than to see a the racist and neo-nazi organisation that you champion pour its money into a pointless legal action.
And if it's not racist and neo-nazi, why on earth have you been staying so quiet all this time. Surely all these dreadful things said about the BNP need to be challenged by its standard-bearers, lest ordinary people actually think they're TRUE!

Ah, the American spelling of "libelous" I see. So much for racial purity.
