Subject: BS: Anti BNP Protest, Codnor, 15 August
From: Royston
Date: 21 Jul 09 - 10:38 AM

For anyone interested in a tangible action against the fascist menace of the BNP, I urge you to join in the protest against them at their "Red, White & Blue" rally in Codnor, Derbyshire on 15 August.

Unite Against Fascism Have called for a mass demonstration at the village of Codnor in which the hardcore rag-tag bunch of racists and Nazis will be effectively "Kettled" in their lonely field of shame.

The demonstration will be civil, peaceful. It has the consent of the local authorities and Derbyshire Police.

Coaches have been booked from around the country - for a list of embarkation points and contact numbers for booking of places, go to COACHES

Or make your own way to Codnor with a view to assembling at 09:00 on 15 August 2009.

Unite Against Fascism is calling on anti-fascists across the country to converge on Codnor, Derbyshire, at 9am on Saturday 15 August to protest against the British National Party rally taking place in the village that weekend.

UAF supporters intend to "kettle" the rally by surrounding it with protesters. This action will demonstrate that the vast majority of people in this country reject the Nazi politics of the BNP.


The BNP pretends that its annual "Red, White and Blue" event is a harmless family-oriented "patriotic" festival. In reality it is aimed at promoting the BNP's fascist agenda to both its hardcore followers and its softer supporters. Previous years have seen SS marching songs played as "entertainment" at the rally.

The rally will also be a magnet for neo-Nazis across Europe. Last year the BNP invited guests including Czech neo-Nazi Petra Edelmannova who has called for a "final solution to the Gypsy issue" and Sweden's Marc Abramsson, a Swedish fascist who campaigns for "racially pure kindergartens" that exclude non-white children.

This year's guests are likely to include representatives of Jobbik, a violently racist Hungarian Nazi party that organises pogroms against Roma people.

Weyman Bennett, joint secretary of Unite Against Fascism, said:

"The BNP's 'Red, White and Blue' is a nothing more than a festival of race hatred. The fascists will use their rally to harden up its supporters and build its army of thugs. Wherever the BNP organises, racist violence follows.

"Allowing this festival to go ahead will mean more race hatred and racist attacks on our streets in the months to come. That is why it is so important for anti-fascists to come to Codnor in huge numbers to surround the BNP's rally.

"The presence of two BNP Nazis in the European parliament also poses challenges for anti-fascists. We need to build the broadest possible movement against the BNP with roots in communities across the country."

Now fairplay, waving placards under police supervision doesn't really amount to a militia, does it?

What is undemocratic about it? BNP holds a political rally over three days, we hold a morning's authorised peaceful protest against the BNP. It's all quite equitable, lawful and democratic. Everyone has the right lawfully to protest against whatever they want lawfully to protest against.

The only militia appears to be Nazi Nick's mates at Redwatch and C18. Oh, and the long list of BNP core-members with convictions for terrorism and violence.

We will have teachers, social workers, musicians, students, housewives waving placards asking folks to be nice to each other. On the BNP side there will be criminal thugs taking pictures of those innocent members of the public and posting their details on the internet with instructions to find them and do them harm.

So don't start about poor old democratic, cuddly BNP-folk.

It's the lawful [allegedly] tactic the state deploys against left-wing protestors at demonstrations; to herd them into a confined space. The term is used with some degree of irony! For a few hours on the 15th August, we want the symbolic appearance of the BNP "kettled" inside its field (which is exactly where the folks in the field have chosen to be anyway)

We are cooperating, and negotiating the extent of our lawful protest, with Derbyshire Police Service and the police directions will be observed in full. Entirely fair and lawful.

Well said Royston!
The BNP is an organisation made up of race haters,hardcore nazis,anti semites and street thugs. Its original leader,Griffin's predecessor John Tyndall, can be seen on "google images" posing in full nazi regalia in front of a large swastika and a framed photograph of Adolph Hitler.
If these characters who are filled with violence and race hatred ever came to power we would see a grotesque rerun of Hitler's Germany with trade unionists, ethnic communities ,leftists, Jews, moslems,the diabled,gays and working class organisations all at risk.
We really can't allow this bunch of thugs to get even more organised.The BNP is being joined at its race hate fest by a grisly collection of fascist and racist thugs from across Europe....I hope they get the welcome they so richly deserve.

The demo assembles in the village from 9am.

There are speeches at 11am, then the march to the "field of shame", or as close as the police will allow.

So we could gather at a landmark in the village or one of us can attach a FaF guitar logo to placard as a visual reference. Good idea.

No BNP Festival site


Taken from the above:

>>>>>>Representatives of the Amber Valley and Derby Campaigns Against Racism and Fascism and Notts Stop the BNP campaign met in Heanor, Derbyshire on Saturday, June 20th to discuss plan for the protest against the BNP's Red, White and Blue festival this year, 2009.

The meeting agreed to organise a protest again this year's BNP festival on August 15th convening in Codnor Market Place. The protest will begin with as many local activists as possible assembling from 9 am. We expect contingents to arrive from elsewhere in the country leading up to a National Rally at 11 am with a demonstration to follow that.

The meeting agreed that the the objectives of the protest against the BNP's RWB festival will be:

to bring together those who oppose the BNP in a peaceful and unified show of mass opposition to this major national event of theirs;
to make clear to participants in the BNP event that they are not welcome in attempting to use Amber Valley as a base for their activities;

to attempt to make our protest seen by as many as possible of those thinking of attending the festival;

to encourage opponents of the BNP in the Amber Valley district and wider area to continue to campaign against the divisive policies of the BNP and the violent activities of their members;

to safeguard as much as possible the safety of those protesting.
Representatives from all of the campaigns planning the protest will be meeting on a weekly basis from now on up until the event itself. A number of organisations, such as UAF and Hope not Hate, had to send their apologies. It is hoped that they, along with sponsors of the event last year, will be able to attend the next major planning meeting planned for July 18th in the centre of Nottingham. The details of this will be sent to last year's sponsoring organisations and posted on this website soon.

This website will again be used to keep people informed of this protest as well as other campaigning activity in the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire area. For further information please contact the email address associated with this website nobnpfestival at riseup.net

The program appears to be speeches and rallying in the centre of Codnor at 11am, procession towards the field straight afterwards. I can definitely keep you posted by 'phone on the day.

Not sure about postcode but Codnor is an ickle place. It'll be in the SatNav as a recognised placename and that's all you'll need to find the action.

Fairplay, you really are a fool.

Hope not Hate is a campaign by Searchlight - the rather famous anti nazi / fascist group. It is significantly supported by may people/companies including, notably, the Daily Mirror. It is also supported by the TUC. Many of the HnH local brances *are* UAF branches.

HnH and UAF work together constantly, as UAF is a banner organisation trying to collate support against the facsists. SWP, like HnH are one of the partners in ant-fascist activism. UAF is not a *front* for anyone. You could accuse it perhaps of being a front for UCU (University and College Union) because they provide a lot of UAF's facilities and practical support, but that would not be a true accustion either. Is UAF a front for the TUC; because it receives a lot of backing there? Or a front for the trade union UNITE; because they are a large stakeholder?

What names on google? What will we see? I've tried and I don't see anything.

If you've got something to say, then say it clearly.

Of course I could be clearer myself...

UAF has a policy of attacking the BNP with facts and information but principally by way of massed demonstration and non-violent direct-action (like egging Nazi Nick or just following him everywhere with the placards and the factsheets).

Hope not Hate's tactic is based on getting the facts and information out by way of media domination and community-based education actions like the "not in my name" campaign which encourages a broader range of people to sign up for anti-fascism, joining a number of famous people, principally from the world of Music and the arts. It's a rerun, and very effective, of Stop the War Coalition's "not in my name" campaign against the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Social/Political campaigning has always needed both sort of groups and I'm proud to give my money to both of these.

Look through the news and other pages of UAF and HnH and you'll see a united front of cooperation in campaigns and ojbectives. Exactly as it should be.

All being well, I'll be there by 11am, but hold ups, delays and best laid plans etc. If somebody could knock up a suitably large FAF banner then I and others will know which contingent to steer towards. Even better, if said contingent could sing some anti-fascist/anti-racist songs, that would help the demonstration along no end.

Ralphie, the intention is not that anyone should be afraid. We're not bothered about having any impact or discussion with the hardcore in the field, because I suspect that they are just too far gone. It's about showing a mass disapproval of BNP fascism and grabbing the media. If some inside the field get the sense that the BNP might not be what it claims to be then great, that would be a happy bonus

More importantly its about decent, concerned folk having the chance to add their weight and to have their voice heard in a collective "shout" against fascism.

Nobody will notice Darby, Joan or Royston but we will know that we were there and that we made the effort along with the two to three thousand other people that together made a big statement. That's what is really important.

I understand that BNP if ever to gain power, would eject all non white immigrants to UK, and indeed their descendants.

What are/would be their policies about All-White British-Nationals who currently democratically object to their policies - if they were to gain power?

Would any White British National who objected to (even perhaps peacefully demonstrated against) their policies of ejecting non-Whites, be ejected and 'sent elsewhere' too?

I'm just curious really.

Crow Sister. I think it was Winston Churchill who once asked "why look in the crystal ball when you can read the book?" The book he referred to was of course Mein Kampf. If anyone today wants to know what a British fascist government would do to its opponents, there is any number of histories of the third reich which will tell them.

"I understand that BNP if ever to gain power, would eject all non white immigrants to UK, and indeed their descendants.
What are/would be their policies about All-White British-Nationals who currently democratically object to their policies - if they were to gain power?
Would any White British National who objected to (even perhaps peacefully demonstrated against) their policies of ejecting non-Whites, be ejected and 'sent elsewhere' too?
I'm just curious really."

This has to be the most boring series of threads on mudcat EVER !
What can we do about it ? Do you think the BNP will read anything here and say "Oh, let's pack up shop, a guy in Canada calls us names and a few Americans dislike us".

Leave them to it and get on with your lives. The BNP did not gain seats in government because the country is heading back into the dark old days of 1933, the BNP gained seats because the government made a mistake in not placing limits on Eastern Europeans flooding into the UK.

Great to see them over here if it's to benefit the nation. All I see around me is Eastern Europeans that can't speak English and don't seem to want to try. Few want employment as having their children in the UK seems to pay better.

The government can't cope, schools can't cope, hospitals can't cope and before too long the Social Security budget won't be able to cope !

That isn't being racist, that is fact.

The Home Office research published last year demonstrated that immigration has contributed £1,650 to every British person's economic output over the last ten years.

AR you remind me of the BNP supporter who, when interviewed on the radio, claimed that legal immigrants from the EU were 'taking all our jobs' AND living off benefits!
Now make your mind up!

I think I've already posted at great length else where the very strict criteria about who can claim benefit in this country and how long they have to be in employment and paying tax to be eligible for any benefits
Eastern Europe immigrant's children from Romania for example were not even eligible for financial assistance with school meals

Not quite correct Emma. Britain's taxpayers are forking out more than £21million a year in child benefit for youngsters living in Poland, official figures reveal.

A loophole in EU regulations means migrants from other EU countries who are seeking work in the UK can claim state handouts for children they have left behind in their home countries.

The total benefits bill for the Treasury is likely to be closer to £50million a year when other Eastern European countries are included.

In addition, ministers refuse to reveal how much more is being paid out in tax credits. Last night, the revelations prompted demands for a shake-up of the rules, with critics complaining of a "Government-sanctioned scam" at a time when millions of British children remain in poverty.

Britain's child benefit payments of £941 per year for a first child or £629 per year for younger siblings are far higher than the equivalent paymentsin Eastern European states that are new EU members.

The Polish benefits system, for example, pays a maximum of around £160 per year in child benefit.

Investigations have found that many workers moving to Britain are fraudulently claiming family benefits in both countries, exploiting lax checks and poor information sharing between member states.

Figures released by the Treasury in answer to Parliamentary written questions from the Conservatives show that at the end of September 26,000 Polish children from 16,286 families were being paid child benefits by UK taxpayers.

That means 16,286 first-born children were receiving the full £18.10 per week with the remaining 10,000 getting the lower payment of £12.10 per week.

The figures show that the number of claimants is soaring.

In June last year, the Treasury said 14,000 families from eight Eastern European states were claiming the benefits - around 10,000 were estimated to be Polish.

Go read - if you can read any further than scare headlines.

EU rules allow migrant workers to claim benefit for children who are in a different country, after working and paying taxes here for a year.
But they cannot legally do so in two countries at once
wo years ago in 2007 it was found that some Polish workers in Britain were illegally claiming child benefit in both the UK and their home country

The UK government estimates that it loses approximately £2bn to benefit fraud every year - and the Polish child benefit claims would be just a very small part of that total.

I'm afraid AR that most of that fraud is 'home grown'

For example
Richard Mulhall, the BNP's council group leader in Calderdale, was sentenced to do 200 hours of unpaid work on four counts of benefit fraud
He was also ordered to pay £2,000 costs and to repay £603.18 in jobseekers' allowance.
He had already repaid the housing benefit and council tax benefit. A jury had found him guilty in October of falsely claiming a total of £3,002.95 in benefits by concealing the fact that his partner was working.

Eastern European migrant workers have limited access on arrival to the welfare state, other than to child benefit which is a universal payment.

Of the 600,000 workers who had registered in the UK in between 2005 and 2007, some 16,868 had applied for some form of income support but the vast majority were turned down.

HM Revenue and Customs, which is in charge of recovering the money, said in a statement: "HMRC takes all allegations of fraud extremely seriously and is looking carefully at the controls in place to ensure all claims are legitimate.
"The UK is working very closely with all its European partners, including Poland, to meet our obligations under EU rules and prevent fraud. We have robust procedures in place."


So what's the reality ?

'Forklift truck driver Peter Rapacz, 36, works for a fruit packing firm in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, while his family remains in Poland.
He lives in a £150-a-week rented house, which he shares with four lodgers.

He sends home half his weekly after-tax wage of £240. In addition, the family receives £33 in child benefit for their two children which is also paid into an account in their home town of Olsztyn, in the north of the country.

How much tax is he paying or putting money into the UK economy to receive this princely weekly sum of £33?

Strangely enough this information was buried at the bottom of a Daily Mail 'shock horror' report in 2007

"Well, we have one. The trouble is it costs a quarter [25 cents]. What this country really needs is a good five-cent nickel."

It is a truth undeniable. Large crowds are there to demonstrate the strength of feeling, and large crowds are dangerous.

You can blame all the agitators you want (and they will be there) but it is all to easy to make a large crowd look like a brawl. Don't forget there are those that actually like fighting, being hurt is a badge of office. And large crowds hide miscreants all to easily.

Have your video phones ready at all times, and let people know you are using them. (put them on a loop around your wrist or waist or they will get knocked and dropped). And use them on the crowd not the police, the enemy lurks within. The agitators will move away from video evidence or try to damage it. Either way - they are revealed. If video phones are universally visible there is nowhere to hide.

Vigilence is your protection, then you can get on with the job in hand - showing your strength of feeling.

The BNP's hate fest will be attended by fascists from across Europe.Among those expected will be representatives from nazi gangs in Hungary who recently rampaged through a Roma village attacking a young pregnant woman and a girl.
They will be met by anti fascists including trade union delegations from the RMT and civil service unions.
The nazi BNP wants to toughen up its street fighters and thugs in parallel to its "respectable" electoral front.
When a far right gang of thugs tried to march through the Bullring last weekend they were met by hundreds of anti fascists and were firmly sent packing.
Codnor will be surrounded by police tomorrow but it is still very important to show that when the nazi BNP organises its fascist activities it will be met in large numbers by anti fascists!

Former football hooligans regroup in far-Right Casuals United

They see themselves as the vanguard in a battle for the soul of Britain against extremist Islamist forces — the "enemy within" bent on imposing Sharia. Casuals United announced their arrival on Saturday when a small army of shirt-sleeved, middle-aged men with beer bellies clashed in a flurry of punches and kicks with young Asians in Birmingham city centre.

The group, which is closely affiliated with the far-right English Defence League, insists that it is a peaceful movement representing ordinary working people angered by the sight of Muslims hurling insults at British soldiers on homecoming parades. But if the chants of "England, England" and the aggressive posturing appear familiar, it is because they are.

The members of Casuals United are largely former football hooligans drawn from the terraces and, according to their critics, are essentially the BNP and National Front repackaged. The groupings have attracted the support of BNP activists including Chris Renton, who created the English Defence League website.

Jeff Marsh, the leader of Casuals United, told The Times that the organisation was a "mixed-race group of English people, from businessmen and women, to football hooligans".

We've lost faith in the police. But only they can put it right
Anti-Islam group in disarray after Birmingham riot
He said: "I came up with the idea to unite football fans to forget their petty rivalries and come together in a national movement. There are a lot of people in their forties and fifties who used to be hooligans but went on to settle down. A lot of young football fans want to get involved."

Mr Marsh, who holds a degree in criminal justice, claims to have support among serving soldiers and points to the activities of army wives on the website Armchair Warriors. "Their men can't be seen to be supporting us directly," he said.

The new beast on the far Right came to prominence when its members clashed with anti-fascist protesters in Birmingham on Saturday. Police made 30 arrests and are still studying closed-circuit television footage.

According to the anti-fascist group Searchlight, Casuals United was created after the trouble in March when Islamists demonstrated against troops returning from Afghanistan to Luton. Two months later, members of Casuals United marched through the town and last month they picketed an Islamic roadshow in North London.

Mr Marsh, 44, whose book The Trouble with Taffies is an account of football violence in South Wales, confirmed that the Luton parade had been the catalyst. He said that a generation of former football hooligans were stirred to action by the sight of Muslim extremists abusing the men of the Royal Anglian Regiment.

After the group was outnumbered by United Against Fascism in Birmingham on Saturday, Mr Marsh pledged that it would return to the city on August 30. The group is also planning a protest in Manchester in October.

The Casuals make full use of modern communications, using social networking websites, notably Facebook, where there are about 40 branches, many of which declare allegiance to various football clubs. The Arsenal branch sums up the group's manifesto, saying that it was formed to "protest peacefully against the Government allowing Islamic Hatemongers to live in our country while raising money for terror abroad, cursing our soldiers and trying to force Sharia law on us".

Gerry Gable, of Searchlight, said: "We predicted real trouble in Birmingham. They are not a non-violent group. They have been involved in trouble in Luton. There are connections between people who run far-right websites and we know the BNP were actively offering to find them people for both Birmingham and for [a demonstration] in Luton on August Bank Holiday".

Weyman Bennett, joint secretary of the United Against Fascism group, said: "Nobody should be taken in by the pretence that these marches and rallies are not aimed at whipping up race hatred against Muslims and Asians. They are racist demos and we should not allow them to take place."

I can only say that it was a magnificent demonstration, that it left the good people of Codnor in no doubt over our feelings about fascism, and that a few minor incidents apart, it passed off peacefully.

Hopefully, if the BNP don't close their hate fest voluntarily then the local council will find some way of doing it for them. Otherwise, it will be a case of same time same place next year.

¡No Pasarán!

The coach I travelled in was 'assigned' to blocking vehicular traffic to the BNP camp at one end of Codnor Denby Lane - all 'local' vehicles were allowed through.

There were approximately 200 people representing a teachers union, Unison, the journalists union, Chesterfield Trades Council and some local people from the area of the camp - shock horror! some wore piercings and tattoos!

Alongside us the church on the corner of the junction held a multidenominational prayer service throughout with clergy from other local churches and offered us the use of their facilities - the toilet was met with particular gratitude.

Although there was a very large police presence (some chatted with us) the atmosphere was generally good natured with singing and chanting although two individuals wearing half race masks were questioned about their identity.
There were also present a number of easy visably identifiable 'legal observers' who attended these 'ad hoc' pavement interviews and searches

At no time were any batons even removed and, although the one occasion the horses were used to make room for police reinforcement vans to pass through was very intimidating - this too passed without any 'incident'.

I understand that after the main protest dispersed having reached the entrance to the camp site some people remained behind in an attempt to access the site and some of these were subsequently arrested.

It was nice to finally bump into Fred on the way back to the coach.

Chris, to quote from the Government website -

"The right to peaceful protest is a vital part of democracy, and it has a long, distinguished history in the UK. .

Taking part in a demonstration, rally or protest is a high-profile way to take a stand on issues important to you.

Protests can make a real difference – leading to changes in governmental policies and laws.

Peaceful protests allow people to come together and stand up for what they believe in, and can be a very effective way of promoting change

The Human Rights Act protects freedom of expression and freedom of assembly – these form the basis for your right to gather with others and protest.

The act forbids governments and other public bodies (including police) from violating these rights.
However, it does allow for some limitations on these rights in order to prevent unrest, violence and crime, and for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others.

Police have a duty to provide protection and assistance for peaceful protests,

A sit-down protest or a blockade – even a peaceful one – can be stopped if it blocks road traffic or public walkways. Any racist chants or threats of violence – even in an otherwise peaceful protest – are not acceptable, and those involved could be arrested and charged."


Please note 'CAN be stopped'
Despite the very heavy police presence with several vans and five mounted police the road blockade remained without challenge
There were never any threats of violence against the few BNP 'spectators' despite the large difference in numerical strength.

Those few protesters that chose later to disrupt the otherwise peaceful nature of the protest were duly arrested - I have no problems with that; I would expect the police to do the same to BNP supporters who engaged in racist chants etc or other forms of anti-social behaviour.

Well I think the police were great too in the support that they gave to our protest - even protecting our blockade from having cars driven through.

A police spokeswoman said they were pleased that the vast majority of the 1500 plus protestors had been peaceful and co-operative and acting assistant chief constable Steve Cotterill said: "We are pleased the protest has been mainly peaceful. We have made fewer arrests than last year."
Officers made a total of 19 arrests for "sporadic behaviour" - fewer than last year.

From todays press -
'Four people have been charged after a protest by about 1,500 people against the BNP's 10th annual Red, White and Blue festival in Derbyshire.
Three were charged with public order offences and a fourth with unlawfully obstructing the highway.'

I can't see any mention of drugs or weapons - all the reports seem to indicate any 'weapons' used consisted of plastic bottles and bags of flour

I travelled on an 'official' UAF coach - in fact absolutely no drugs (excluding cigarettes) or weapons were allowed on board.

Just as a point of contrast -

The BNP supporters at the camp were treated to an address by Roberto Fiore, the leader of the Italian far-right party Forza Nuova and a friend of the BNP leader Nick Griffin
He spoke to the Red, White and Blue Festival about the "threat" to Europe from Islamic extremism.

Mr Fiore, who once said he was happy to be described as a neo-fascist, was sentenced in 1985 to 10 years prison in Italy, in his absence, for being a member of the political wing of the Armed Revolutionary Nuclei, a fascist terror group.

The group's armed wing was implicated in the Bologna bombing of 1980, which killed 85 people. Mr Fiore's jail term was eventually "timed out" under Italy's statute of limitation laws, and he was able to return to his homeland in April 1999.

We all know what Guest "Chris" is, we know what his friends are. Now the dust is settling it is becoming clear that there were 19 arrests on the day for public order offences: mainly not obeying police orders on the route and boundaries of the protest and for obstructing the highway. Charges have only been brought against four people. Three for "public order offences" (this normally means failing to obey police directions) and one for osbtructing the highway. On a demo-turnout of 1,500 people that's pretty amazingly good.

Sorry Chris, no drugs, no violence, no weapons offences.

As Emma pointed out, inside the field we had headline speeches by convicted neo-nazi terrorists and the presence of all the usual rag-tag criminals (proof provided here ad nauseum) including Lambertus Nieuwhof who is a south african terrorist convicted of bombing a primary school and of course Nick Griffin (1998, convicted of incitement to racial hatred.)

No punch ups, no drunks, no rowdies, no trouble with local residents, and no litter. All we left was a message, loud, clear and unequivocal, that we will not tolerate nazism in this country under any circumstances.

That is the way to tackle these race hate scumbags. Start using violence, start mixing it with the police and we'll be the losers. Let Codnor be the touchstone for all future anti-fascist activity.

"Lambertus Nieuwhof". Isn't he the geezer who runs the BNP website?

BTW. The stewards announced that we got within 150 metres of the entrance to "mein campf". I've studied the google map of Codnor Denby Lane, blown up as large as I could go, and I reckon we were even closer than that. If I've figured out where those BNP brats were gawping at us correctly, then we must have stopped right by the entrance to the farm.

The biggest weakness the BNP have is people like "Chris". They are of moderate intelligence and education but lack the ability to speak well. That is, they seem unable to use fact, so in typical Nazi fashion they declare something to be so and wait for the facts to follow. When the facts don't follow--which they never do in Chris's case--he changes the topic. SSDD.

CONGRATULATIONS to all of you who went to show the BNP for what it is: scum. As for the remark about some protest guy smokin' a doobie and another person having some piercings and two people holding hands: that is rich. Rich indeed coming from a 'political party' like the BNP (I do not consider them such) that embraces people who think rape is just sex and women should shut up about it; a 'political part' that has so many convicts in the organization; a 'political party' that has members who take underaged teenaged girs into hotels; a 'political party' based on hatred and fueled by stupidity, alcohol and assorted perversions.

and one who never made the festival....

American white supremacist Preston Wiginton was stopped by UK Border Agency officials at Heathrow Airport and sent back to New York, as he attempted to make his way to the festival.

Wiginton first appeared on the white nationalist scene in October 2005, not long after he turned 40, when he attended Hammerfest, a neo-Nazi skinhead festival in Draketown, Ga

One month after Hammerfest, he organized a lecture at Texas A&M University by anti-immigration extremist Frosty Wooldridge.

When about 100 anti-racist protesters surrounded Wiginton and Wooldridge in a "free speech zone," Wiginton threatened to "bring in the Hammerskins," apparently a reference to members of Hammerskin Nation, a nationwide coalition of violent skinhead gangs.

Wiginton's next public move was the NoAztlan aerial banner campaign. By his own account, he paid $5,500 for a gigantic banner that bore the message, "USA LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT," a crossed-out Mexican flag and the Internet address of Wiginton's conspiracy theory website NoAztlan.Com (a reference to an alleged secret plan by Mexico to reconquer the southwestern United States)

The website it promotes contains an essay by Wiginton that describes non-white immigration as "an abnormal growth that is threatening the life of American culture and the life of American people. If action is taken, and time is of the essence, this cancer can be eradicated,"

He strategically limits his Jew-bashing and endorsements of racially motivated violence to his personal website and a handful of white supremacist online forums including Stormfront, which he joined in October 2006 using the screen name "Ruskybound."

He has since repeatedly boasted on Stormfront of his close relationship with Alexander Belov, the former spokesman for the Russian ultranationalist and virulently anti-Semitic group Pamyat.

last October he co-sponsored another lecture at Clemson with the Council of Conservative Citizens a white supremacist organization - this one by Nick Griffin, the Holocaust-denying chairman of the BNP.

Well, here comes one of "Chris's" assertions (about those nice, peacable BNP members) shot down in flames:


LONDON (Reuters) - Three people have been charged with racially aggravated public order offences after a group heading to a far-right British National Party camp on Saturday taunted anti-racism protesters, police said.

Derbyshire police arrested 19 people during the mainly peaceful anti-BNP rally near a farm outside the village of Codnor where the BNP's Red, White and Blue festival was held over the weekend.

The three were among a group who crossed fields to get to the camp on foot under police escort as hundreds of demonstrators waving placards saying "the BNP is a Nazi party" blocked road access to the site.

The BNP, which campaigns to halt immigration and repatriate immigrants voluntarily, won its first two seats in the European Parliament in June.

Although it has no representatives in the British parliament, the party has won support from white voters angry about unemployment and access to public housing and other services during the worst recession in generations.

Apparently the cost of football-related policing in Strathclyde alone hit £4.87 million during the 2007-08 season

The clash at the Liberty Stadium last season between Cardiff and Swansea cost South Wales Police a whopping £107,718.
That policing figure includes the cost of officers on duty on the day, but not the wider costs incurred such as the months of planning and gathering intelligence on potential trouble-makers.
Chief Constable Barbara Wilding has said the total cost to the force in terms of resources was in the region of £250,000!

The number of arrests at football matches are available on the web In the season 2006/7 195 Manchester United fans were arrested

Good God in the name of Christ will you allow people the right to vote, speak and express views without rattling on with silly unsubstantiated worthless cut and paste articles from some smart arsed student rag.

Yes I attended the wonderful celebration of our heritage last Saturday, yes I saw "the great unwashed" arrive, frankly we viewed them as sad people out on their annual one day social occasion seeking to either make a deal for gear or to cause trouble. What in the name of God can a handful of luvvies ever hope to achieve by such actions ?

I want the Britain back I grew up in, I look at those beautiful Ealing studio classics and see the land my father and grandfather fought to protect from invasion and watch a Labour party filled with shirttail lifters standing on the cliffs of Dover with open arms to any Tom, Dick or Harry.

Those arrows on the lead titles of Dad's Army aren't fictional, they are the reality of government policy to destroy this once great nation.

You just don't get it, do you? I am really getting fed up of repeating this point over and over again.

If racist bigots who are committed fascists and neo-nazis want to vote for a nasty party that represents their nasty views, like the BNP, then it is their choice... at get on with it, and I don't give a toss what people like that vote for and to be frank we are better off when they are all in one party where they can rot in their own bile rather than spread their venom through mainstream politics and decent society.

What these protests are about is to draw attention to intelligent people who may be disillusioned with the main political parties to be aware of what the BNP stands for and the extent to which it is supported and organised by criminals including people who murder pregnant women. Do you think the court records in public domain are "smart-arsed student rags"?

first you are in cotton wool then you slip away without being aware that you have stopped breathing.

whay has this got to do with the BNP? they want to murder people not be sensitive to their suffering.

the other difference is the BNP want only to murder selected people as owen stated, i only want to stop sufering and degridation(?).
treating people with respect and humility is not something the BNP are known for.

Sam, or whatever name you are choosing today, you say you were at Codnor but your report seems strangely out of synch with this report from Reuters

'I went to the anti-fascist protest against the far-right British National Party's annual summer "festival" on Saturday fearing trouble….

But the atmosphere as hundreds of demonstrators from across Britain descended on the village Codnor in Derbyshire seemed more one of cheerful determination to celebrate and protect multi-cultural Britain than a belligerent mob set on fist-fighting in fields….

It seemed to me that the assembled variety of ages, races and religions perfectly reflected what is great about modern life in British cities.'

Perhaps you were one of the people, as reported in the Times online targeting children as recruits for the BNP's youth wing.

No doubt the 15 year old boy who tormented a 14 year old British born girl and fellow pupil of mixed heritage in Lincolnshire with taunts of 'wog', 'gorilla' and 'golliwog'. and 'Go back to your own country. You don't belong here.' until she attempted suicide was one such 'happy camper'

Britain had, long before your existence, a policy of immigration, I believe some groups were already in second or third generation removed from their ancestor's arrival, that was around the time of my dad's childhood, in the late fifties and early sixties, infact where he grew up in Birmingham, the neighbourhood (Handsworth) was what we would now call a multi-ethic area, and everyone played and hung out together with no problems at all. No, the real problem here is the BNP and their sort, and there are ways of solving the said problem.

Not just London!

There was a wave of immigration following the progroms against the Jews especially in the 1880s

"Those leaving the Russian Empire sailed from the ports on the Baltic coast, primarily Libau [now: Liepaja, Latvia], Königsberg [now: Kaliningrad] and Szczecin [Stettin, Poland].

Most dreamt of going to America, but those who could not afford the fare over the Atlantic Ocean took the short voyage to Denmark or Sweden, or further on to England, where either they would work hard trying to save money enough for the next part of the journey or subsequently choose to settle down and make their life.
For the majority of Russian emigrants whose planned destination was England it was often the case that they had the name and address of a friend or relative who would assist them on their arrival.

A report on Leeds in 1888, by the (UK) Select Committee on Immigration stated, "During the last twenty years there has been a steady influx of Polish-Russian Jews. The greater part come from the province of Kovno, and on starting, are often acquainted with but one word of English, 'LEEDS'."

Jews were attracted to this city by the rapidly expanding clothing industry where both wages and working conditions proved superior to those in London or Manchester."

The main community for Jews in Leeds was The Leyland; my ancestors eventually completed their diaspera over the Pennines but retained the name 'Leyland' (my maiden name) as a 'naturalized' family name.

And not just England (UK). Canada is a nation of immigrants.

The following is from Stats Can.

"Over the past 100 years, more than 13 million immigrants have arrived to forge a new life here, making Canada one of the world's most ethnically diverse countries. Most came from Europe during the first half of the twentieth century. Later on, non-Europeans started arriving in larger numbers as economic immigrants or refugees, or as family members of previous immigrants.

By 1970, half of all immigrants were coming from Caribbean nations, Asia and South America. In the 1980s, a growing number were arriving from Africa.


View data for Chart 13.1In the 1990s, 58% of Canada's immigrants were born in Asia (including the Middle East); 20% were from Europe; and 22% came from the Caribbean, Central and South America, Africa and the United States. Most (73%) settled in Toronto, Montréal and Vancouver, transforming the ethno-cultural composition and socioeconomic dynamics of these cities.

In 2001, 10.3 million people—nearly half of Canada's population aged 15 and older, not including Aboriginal peoples—reported British, French or Canadian ethnic origins, or some combination of the three, reflecting the long history of British and French peoples in Canada. Meanwhile, 4.3 million Canadians reported other European origins, 2.9 million reported non-European origins, while 3.3 million reported mixed ethnicity."

More history -

A Century of British Fascism

from the 1958-68 period

'the NF's voting base was disenchanted Labour voters in the major conurbations.'

and 1969-79

'The party's earliest activists had placed themselves and the NF to the right of the Conservative Party and had assumed that the NF would appeal predominantly to disgruntled ex-Conservatives, but the 1960s were to prove that a more significant source of support would be racist voters.
Many but by no means all were working class in origin, and many - but again by no means all - were usually Labour voters; they were often in inner-city working-class areas or on peripheral council estates, especially in provincial cities such as Leicester and Wolverhampton.
In fact, the NF was one of the first extreme-right parties in Europe to use crude expulsionist anti-black and anti-Asian racism as the prime basis of its electoral appeal.'

Life would be a lot simpler if the enemy was confinded to gout ridden ex-colonels and litte englanders, who sign themselves 'Disgusted from Tunbridge Wells". But a large part of Fascism's support has always come from reactionary elements of the working class.

I've just had a message from Hope Not Hate about an anti-Islamic march which is to be staged in Luton on September 19th. Part of it reads:-

"In a few weeks time, football hooligans, far right extremists and Islamophobes are planning to descend on Luton, with a simple goal - to whip up fear, religious tension and violence. And you won't be surprised to hear that the BNP are involved.

"The last time the anti-Islam protesters marched in Luton, gangs of thugs stormed the predominantly Muslim area of the town, smashing up cars and shopfronts along the way - and forcing law abiding men and women to flee or fight to safeguard their homes and families. Riot police had to be deployed and 35 people were arrested. We can't let this happen again."

The message goes on to request everyone to email the Home Secretary and the Chief Constable, via the following link, requesting them to ban the march.

I think this is born out by the fact that the BNP's "success" in the East Riding in the European Elections to a large extent stemmed from the fact that Hull is the biggest conurbation in the constituency. Lots of disgruntled Labout voters and one of the most racist cities in the UK. It may also have been a protest against the elitist Conservatives and UKIP, who have previously dominated the vote.

He's not in the real world at all. A few years ago the BNP (or it might have been the NF - they all look the bloody same to me) started an alternative football league table where goals scored by black players didn't count. I wonder who's top of the league now.

Islamists in Britain have celebrated the deaths of British soldiers in Afghanistan on the Internet, cheering the Taliban on and expressing the desire for even more British soldier casualties.

On the website "Islamic Awakening," which bills itself as working to provide "authentic knowledge and guidance with regards to everyday duties Muslims offer to Allah, such as Jihad etc." posts have been made saying that the "bros" in Afghanistan are "going to push for the next century" and "round it up to 300" deaths, amongst other comments.


The first messages were posted on Sunday, with a poster calling himself Ismaeel writing: "Man, they really are dropping like flies over there.

Another, calling himself AbuJunayd, wrote: "On a side note, you reckon the bros are gonna push for the next century, round it up to 300. Inshallah the more the kuffs(*) deploy, the more the bros will send em back in body bags, or crutches or with serious psychological problems. May Allah give the Mujahideen Sabr,m reward and victory." (* = kuffs is slang for kuffars, or non-Muslims).

Another poster, Wazir, said: "By command of Allah, the invading forces will be forced to withdraw humiliated and defeated by a group of men who between them do not possess even one transport helicopter."

Noorah said: "They are really getting whooped. Don?t know how they think they can win."

The Islamic Awakening website's founding charter states further that its purpose is to "face the ideological onslaught waged on the Muslims by exposing the doctrines of deviancy and disbelief, such as secularism, socialism, democracy and nationalism" and to "preserve the true meanings of some of the important Islamic concepts, such as'Jihad','Commanding the Good & Forbidding the Evil','Love and Hate for the sake of Allah'from the unblessed scheme of the hypocrites and disbelievers who are working tirelessly to redefine Islam under the pretext of 'curbing religious extremism and intolerance'."

Only a few days ago the Labour Government announced that it would be scaling down its spending on trying to combat Islamic extremism in Britain "because Muslims are being stigmatised."

So these are another few for you to hug Emma.

This is wonderful news.

The reason that the BNP is here is that people are reactive and not proactive.

British value systems are based on democratic ideals. The British outlawed slavery when the US endorsed it for example.

Yes, Britain has a history of imperialist designs on other countries but the Brits have
shown some common sense by quitting India and futile policies.

Darwin was British. Marx lived in Britain. Some of the finest educated minds in the world come from Britain. Oxford is considered to be one of the finest
universities in the world.

I believe that the British working class is better educated than in America.

There is much that Britain can be proud of without the lies of the BNP.

The best protest is to encourage the important heritage of the British people such as
free-thinking, accepting of cultural diversity (yes they do and always have done in Britain) and why not? It makes Britain a model for democracy.

The BNP is like the crazy Republican protesters in the States. They are cut from the same cloth and both intend to destroy their respective countries.

A Muslim who randomly slashed a white man in Manningham, telling him that the town belonged to Muslims and that whites were to be kicked out, was not charged with any racially aggravated assault but merely with wounding with intent.

Although Amir Rehman, 18, shouted racial abuse at 51-year-old Ronald O'Connor, telling him that "Manningham belongs to Muslims. We don't want whites. We rule Bradford. We are going to get you out," he was not charged under sections 28-32 and 82 of the Crime and Disorder Act which specifically deals with racist violence and harassment.

There can be no doubt that had the perpetrator been a white British person, he or she would have been charged under the racially aggravated legislation. It is therefore increasingly clear that the anti-racist violence law is only used against whites.

As it is, the court case only made local news in the Bradford and Argus Telegraph, with a minor follow-up story in the national Telegraph, but so far the vicious anti-white attack has been deliberately ignored by the rest of the controlled media.

Mr O'Connor tried to flee the racist attacker by running into a shop, but Rehman ran up and stabbed him twice in the upper arm with a four- to five-inch bladed knife.

The Leeds court heard that Rehman, of Lumb Lane, Manningham, was described as if in a frenzy, "like a crazy man, out of control," as he tried to slash Mr O'Connor's face. The palms of Mr O'Connor's hands were slashed as he tried to defend himself.

Prosecutor Richard Gioserano said: "Rehman was swinging at him over and over again with the knife. Mr O'Connor was in great pain and in fear, literally, of his life."

Mr O'Connor had surgery at Bradford Royal Infirmary for a deep laceration to his palm. He also suffered lacerations to his fingers and two incisions to his upper arm with apparent nerve damage.

Within hours of appearing at court for a preliminary hearing of the case in March, Rehman went to Pudsey with two other Muslims, Amar Farooq and Tanveer Hussain, where they committed a series of robberies on children on their way home from school.

The judge, Recorder David Bradshaw, told Rehman he had committed an unprovoked attack on an innocent man causing "horrendous" injuries.

He said: "I am satisfied it was accompanied by racial abuse and seemed to have a racial motive."

* It has also been reported that Walter Chamberlain, the D-Day veteran attacked by Muslims in Oldham in 2001, has passed away from old age. Mr Chamberlain, who was 76 years old at the time of the famous incident, was walking through the Westwood district of Oldham when three Muslims demanded to know his address. He refused to tell them and was pushed to the ground and left bleeding with broken cheekbones. According to local reports, one of the attackers said: "This is our area. Get out."

Mr Chamberlain said one of his assailants told him that he was "not allowed in this part of town because he was white."

Mr Chamberlain took part in the D-Day landings with the Royal Navy. He was later a bus conductor in Oldham for 34 years. The attack was one of four racially motivated incidents in Oldham on that weekend, and played an important role in generating support for the British National Party in that town in the subsequent local elections.

You are right John, Amir Rehman is clearly a very unhappy young man who like many others wakes up in the morning, looks in the mirror and wishes he were white. He perpetrates such crimes because he is twisted with bitterness, resentfulness and rage being totally ashamed of his lot in life. He will continue to inflict his misery on the indigenous population untill he kills someone and is then caged for life. Well no amount of counseling can help people like this so I think the best course of action is deportation to a country where they fit in. I have observed that most animals are happier and thrive in their natural environment so this animal would be much better off airlifted to the top of the Himalayas with no shoes and dropped there wearing a parachute from a great height if one is available.

The site which publishes names, adresses and photographs of left wingers and anti-fascists and incites skinhead thugs to go along and beat them up.

While you're there, perhaps you could mention the BNP lowlife who published the list in the first place. What a way for someone to rat on their mates, just because they fell out with the leadership. Must have been someone pretty close to the top as well. After all, they wouldn't let out the private details of every member on their books to anyone else would they.

Hopefully this will be the last thing I have to say.

(1) A criminal is a criminal irrespective of race, colour, gender, relgion, sexial orientation. A criminal act is a criminal act whoever carries it out, and racism is a criminal act.

What your head is too small to get round, Sam, is that criminal acts are carried out from all walks of life, and are treated accordingly. Because one Muslim may carry out an attack it does not make all Muslims attackers, and everyone with at least one brain cell can work that out for themselves - otherwise you have to say that because of Copeland all white people are nail bombers. Any intellegent person would instantly see the 'doublespeak' - a tool used by all fascists, i.e. blame the community for the actions of individuals. Do you really want a reoccurance of incidents like Lidice (committed Neo-Nazis probably would want to refer to it as Liditz). I know you won't look it up as it the history does not fit in with the BNP line.

The point, and I know you are too stupid to get it because your superiors in BNP told you so, is that the BNP as a party aims to legitimise illegal actions and actively promote race hate, and by and large they are organised thugs, who are no different to playground bullies who want tot impose their vile hatred on those who are different to them, and then start sniveling when decent people stand up to them.

BNP members are habitual skinheads and covered in tatoos and they go round in singlets and stuff to make sure everyone can see the artwork. Suppose we dropped a few of them onto a freezing Himalayan maountain, with no headgear to prvent their brains from freezing?

Anyway, wasn't there something in the papers a while ago about all the garbage that's being left on Mount Everest?

Hey Sam - from teh News of teh World

BNP undercover reporters are beggining to show what realy happened at the BNP RWB nazi rally. Dont Forget, the RWB festival was only open to BNP card carrying members.
____________________________________________________

A LITTLE girl grins with glee as she holds a golly over a fire . . . while a jeering BNP politician finds the doll guilty of BEING BLACK during a vile mock trial and execution.

The baying crowd cheers when the toy - dubbed Winston - is condemned and dropped on to the flames to "die".

Goading on the assembled adults and kids the politician, a local council candidate, yells out these chilling words: "Let's get a real one . . . in the town we'll find one or two."

SCROLL BELOW TO WATCH GOLLY-BURNING BNP VIDEO

The sickening stunt was staged at the British National Party's annual FAMILY festival last weekend - yet the BNP insists it is NOT racist as part of its successful ploy to attract votes in elections.

Around 1,200 members converged on fields at Codnor, Derbys, for the Red White and Blue "fun" weekend. Our undercover reporter, posing as a supporter to gain entry to the members-only event, secretly filmed racism everywhere.

For £1 a go, people were throwing wet sponges at a man in a Barack Obama mask locked in stocks.

Elsewhere stalls were selling T-shirts with slogans like It's A White Thing and books such as Race, Evolution and Behavior - which insists whites give birth to larger-brained babies and blacks are prone to crime.

Supporters gave Nazi-style salutes and shouted Sieg Heil.

Cooked

And in the "political tent", party chairman and MEP Nick Griffin, 50, was setting out how his party would deal with proposed anti-discrimination laws forcing the BNP to change its whites-only membership policy.

He said: "Since if we want to survive we will be forced to let them in, the key will be before we do so to change the party - to ensure that whoever's coming in doesn't have any control."

Saturday night was the climax of the festival - and when the vileness reached its peak. Firstly, around 50 skinheads took part in a PAGAN ceremony to summon occult powers for their cause.

They chanted incantations as they passed around and drank from an animal horn filled wth mead.

Two hours later, local council candidates John Coombes, of Maidenhead, Berks, and Dick Hamilton of Marlow, Bucks, were sitting with others around a brazier.

Hamilton's ghettoblaster blared out songs supporting Hitler and attacking "ni**ers".

Then began the "trial" led by Coombes, 45.

A 12-year-old girl there with her dad (we are protecting her identity) held a golly called Winston over the fire as Coombes "charged" him with "mugging, rape, drug dealing".

He sneered: "Right Winston, you're about to get cooked. Anything else to say?

"Says he ain't a drug dealer. He thinks he's not black. He's charged with being black. Now get on there."

Skinhead Hamilton chipped in: "If he jumps off he's innocent." Coombes went on: "He's guilty, guilty as charged.

"Let's get a real one - in the town we'll find one or two. They'll also be guilty of the heinous crimes I charged him with - may God forgive your horrible soul." Coombes repeated the charges then added: "He may have appeared innocent to you lot but I'm sure he done lots of things wrong."

During the weekend the party's other MEP Andrew Brons used his stint in the political tent to compare Muslims to SMALLPOX during his speech.Reply to Jason

I am sick of people questioning why I voted BNP. The BNP is the manifestation of lax immigration, economic and foreign policy.

Every sin has it's penance. You can't make it go away before you atone for it. The BNP is your penance and they are gaining momentum.

British People vote BNP because its right, why should we have to take in and look after all the aids infested, facists, and general loafers only here to claim benefits and putting a burdon on our healthcare, police service, education system and jobs when most of these immigrants are in fact from countries with a Government able, but too selfish to find solutions as to why they're a little bit poor.

Why can't they create their own wealth rather than parasiting off the wealth WE created? Most of these countries already have more land and natural resources than Europe, it says something about what sort of people they are that they've done less with it.

Far from encriching our society they simply make it more like the hell hole nations they've left, just look at the state of London, Luton, Birmingham and every other city with high levels of third world migration. Gun crime, rape, robbery and murder rises with every drop of third world "enrichment" the UK is subjected to! This is what happens when stupid Commies who turned their brains to mush in the 70's and 80's with coke and cannabis come to power!

And I dont understand the term 'Illegal Immigrant' If they have no legal status, they should have no access to public funds or protection under the law. Of course, Labour PMs love to say, "B-b-b-but it's unfair to punish the CHILDREN!!!" You know what's unfair? Saddling future generations of legal children with untenable debt because of all the cash needed to support illegals.

Every day people rush into this country from God knows where, competing for jobs and finding themselves in abject poverty. The only problem is that Britain has become an "entitlement" society; we are currently being saddled with debt to which illegal immigration certainly will contribute.The bad part is that Britain has a deficit that is so huge, it engulfs 1 and 1/2 times our national product. This situation is untenable.

The Labour party has steadily contributed to the economic declines in Britain since before WWI and especially since the end of WWII.
One would think that after 100 years of wealth redistributions and a hugemongous debt, Labour would finally find that illegal immigration is breaking our backs.

Britain should repudiate the treaty that sucked us into Brussels. Why in the hell would you let a bunch of remote bureaucrats run your lives?

Helloooooo Sam. I see you. And the others who tried to hide. Who are you going to block now, when you don't know who to look for?

Oh, and if you want the truth: -

"aids infested, facists, and general loafers only here to claim benefits and putting a burdon on our healthcare, police service, education system and jobs when most of these immigrants are in fact from countries with a Government able, but too selfish to find solutions as to why they're a little bit poor" - absolute gibberish (and ungrammatical gibberish too) - but you can't have it both ways. Look around. You will find immigrants from countries with no effective governments, immigrants from countries where they are tortured, imigrants almost wholly staffing the lower levels of the health service, and immigrants propping up our economy in unattractive jobs.

Without immigrants, where would the mobile phone shops be? Where would the corner shops be? Where would agriculture be and how could you get a plumber or builder?

This answers your second question, about creating wealth, too.


Your third point is really ridiculous. Outlawry (rightly) vanished as a concept in English law about as far back as the 1300s. Remember Robin Hood? As the USA has found - if illegal immigrants cannot get driving licences then they cannot get insurance - result, you nwo have unlicensed uninsured "private hire" cars - as they diligently seek work. If they have no healthcare, you get breakouts of infections, to the general detriment of public health. If they ahve no housing, then you have communities sleeping rough. If they ahve no access to legal employmnet then you will inevitably get begging and working "black" (unfortunate expression, but there it is) with reduction in safety standards for teh public.


"competing for jobs and finding themselves in abject poverty" - well, make up your mind. I thought you said "they" were only here to sponge of benefits and live off the fat of the land. Are "they" working and trying to work, or not? Are benefits (when available, note restrictions on asylum seekers) a luxury to "them", or are they "abject poverty"?

Britain's debt has been caused by the inherent contradictions of capitalism being allowed (thanks largely to "conservative" pressures, not to natural socialist policies) to destroy banking, banking that free market "thinkers" allowed to become foolish gambling. Until then, Brown had presided (even if he was not a real socialist) over one of the most successful economic periods in UK recent (ie about 100 years) economic history.   



Sam, do yourself a favour and get an education. Try to think. It is not necessarily the case that "other races" are inferior. We are all descended from rift valley ancestors. We owe modern mathematics to Arabian civilisations. We owe much of European language to sanskrit, and gunpowder to the far east. We owe the modern electronics industry to Japanese pioneers. Just what makes you better than "them"?

"I am sick of people questioning why I voted BNP."

Noone gives a toss who you vote for, and if nasty neo-nazis want to vote BNP do so, but so trying to convince other people that you are doing so out of any other motive aprt from your apparant bigotry.

" The BNP is the manifestation of lax immigration, economic and foreign policy."

The BNP is the manifestation of neo-nazis,including violent criminal who want to gain power and impose white supremacy.

Every sin has it's penance. You can't make it go away before you atone for it. The BNP is your penance and they are gaining momentum.

The BNP is our penance for the behaviour of racist thugs.

"British People vote BNP because its right"

BNP vote fell in the last elections.

"why should we have to take in and look after all the aids infested, facists, and general loafers only here to claim benefits and putting a burdon on our healthcare, police service, education system and jobs when most of these immigrants are in fact from countries with a Government able, but too selfish to find solutions as to why they're a little bit poor."

All unsubstantiated.

"Why can't they create their own wealth rather than parasiting off the wealth WE created? Most of these countries already have more land and natural resources than Europe, it says something about what sort of people they are that they've done less with it."

Migrant workers create wealth - albiet in employments (thus paying income tax), or running eneterprises. The proportion of migrant workers in employment FAR exceeds those NEET.

"Far from encriching our society they simply make it more like the hell hole nations they've left"

Our culture is the result of centuries of inflence from all over the world. I would argue that most traditional song and dance has its roots in other parts of the world.

" just look at the state of London, Luton, Birmingham and every other city with high levels of third world migration."

where would the transport services, health services etc. be without migrant workers doing the jobs that noone else wants to do?


"Gun crime"

BNP wants its cronies to be armed after their national
service...
"rape",
"robbery and murder" - laidlaw, copeland, et al.

For the other points I refer you back to Richard's excellent answer.


Do you know what, every time you post you show more or more what the BNP is about. Keep posting. You provide a better argument for not voting BNP than decent intellegent people ever can.

I have to get back to my work now.

Even worse is some trying to do logic live in the states where it really does not apply since it is British politics only.   My grand dad had a line it went "you cannot expect more from a pig then a grunt"

What happened here with a similar group was this. Those who were injured in any manner, threatened in any manner, were plastered with so many civil law suits against the organization that the millionaire leader now lives on public welfare since he lost everything he owned due to civil liability from the groups violence and threats. Now for good people to argue with them does nothing and only gives more press. They can use their rights to free speech but if no one listens then no one listens. However I don't know your civil laws but I am sure they can be used if you were discriminated against or injured in any manner.

Also at the same time, if other activities in communities that the BNP try an enamor themselves with take a similar stand, be it other music forms, theatre, gardeners, keep fit classes, etc etc, then the joined up effect becomes tremendous, and more and more people talk intelligently about the threat that the BNP is thus making them more and more marginalised.

Now there's a question I've wanted to ask our friend "Sam" or is it Chris, I forget, anyway.....The question is; How you ever served in the RAF, Navy or Army? Defending the country you so strongly believe in. Any other contributions you may have made to Britain that you feel we should know about? Or do you just spend your time bitching and complaining about others, particularly those of different ethnic origins to yourself. I know people who do more for Britain just by getting out of bed in the morning, than you've apparently done your whole life.

yes i do believe in speaking and explaining the BNP to wouldbe voters who have just had enough of what we already have.
how many times must i say that, yes there are alot of BNP supporters you cannot reach by being reasonable?
if i thought for one second that 'sam' belived what she is writing i would pounce on it, but at she is nothing but a troll, why waste my time?


that article on the gollie, was incredibly disturbing, i cannot imagine what she is aying at sachool and her friends taking it all in, these things are never contained, but spread like the evil it is. is there any way to find out what school she goes to and see what kind of anti racist steps they are taking? i wonder how many of her classmates and friends are of not acceptable to the BNP? i would hope alot so at least she has a chance, in time, to see what she is being taught by her very 'nice' parents.

it is all about education,we have to counter the start 'em young that the BNP are doing b y going into schools and making the kids understand just what it was that their great grandads fought for and against.

i agree with whoever it was said that these troll posts are doing more for our cause than attracting numbers for the BNP.

it is the issues that the troll keeps coming up with that need to be addressed, the troll itself is just someone to laugh at really.

take care all

This looks rather like what is called in the sort of circles that use that sort of language "female relational bullying". Using methods that are supposed to protect people from attack to attack them - we had little girls who used the anti-bullying mediation process to report their victims as being the bullies, while giggling and sneering at the victims. (Without noticing a teacher observing them.) Giving the impression of being an ingroup that is excluding the victim - hence references to supportive friends, and special language forms. This works in schools where victims may be wanting to be part of the group, but is not very effective in adults. Projecting their own behaviour on to the victim. It's rather sad when it goes on into adulthood.
An elderly friend of my sister told me that these girls spend all their time planning what nastiness to do next.
While the writers of educational texts have many suggestions of methods to deal with boys bullying, there was scant advice in my day of how to deal with the girls.

BNP deliberately spread Islamophobia - in Essex

Epping Forest Monday 3rd August 2009

"THE British National Party has been accused of whipping up racial tensions in the district after it issued an inflammatory leaflet about a local Muslim community group.

In the latest edition of the BNP's Epping Forest Patriot, delivered to many households in Loughton, the group attack the use on Friday afternoons of the Murray Hall, in Borders Lane, for Islamic prayer sessions.

Under a picture of a union flag being eaten away by the Islamic moon and crescent the leaflet says: "In parts of neighbouring Redbridge and east London the Islamification process is almost complete. We'll do all in our power to prevent Islam creeping into our town."

.....Epping Forest BNP group leader Pat Richardson said she had seen the leaflet and "didn't disagree with it."
Loughton Inspector Tom Simons said the leaflet was "unhelpful" but did not break the law."

guardian.co.uk, Wednesday 26 August 2009

"Racist attackers abducted a Muslim community leader at knifepoint, bundled him into a car and threatened his life unless he stopped running prayer sessions in a community hall that has been the target of a British National party campaign.

Police have confirmed they are treating the incident as a hate crime and are investigating links with an earlier firebomb attack on the same man's home.

Ramjanally said he was abducted from his home in daylight by two white men who threatened him with a knife, bundled him into a car then drove him into woodland. They demanded he stop organising the Friday prayer sessions at Murray hall community centre. He said the words from his abductors matched the BNP propaganda opposing the Muslim prayers. The same demand was contained in hate mail he received last month threatening his wife and child, he said.

On 2 July, Ramjanally received an anonymous threatening letter telling him to stop using the hall for prayers and stating the author knew which school his child went to and which car he drove. The next day his flat was firebombed. The BNP has four councillors in the area and its leafleting campaign in late July has been attacked as inflammatory and divisive.

Mohammad Fahim runs the nearest mosque to Loughton which was firebombed in 2000. He said racists have used the fears of new mosques in the area to stoke racial and anti-Muslim tensions.

The BNP describes Fahim's mosque, in south Woodford, four miles from Loughton, as "notorious" and claims it has incited violence.

In fact, Fahim works as a chaplain for the Metropolitan police.

Loughton, which borders the eastern fringe of London, is affluent in parts, with a number of houses on its millionaire's row, called Alderton Hill, owned by British Hindu families. It is also a road, said Fahim, where women wearing headscarves are racially abused by passing white motorists. He advised one Muslim woman to remove her headscarf to avoid being a victim of hate crime.
According to the 2001 census, just over 1%of the area's residents describe themselves as Muslim

Abdurahman Jafar, chair of the Muslim Safety Forum, which advises the police, said: "The campaign of terror has followed a campaign organised by the BNP whereby they delivered hate literature to locals citing the small Friday prayer sessions as evidence of how 'the Islamification process is almost complete'." Recent months have seen a sharp rise in religiously motivated attacks against the Muslim community including attacks on outwardly Muslim appearing individuals, mosques and pogroms directed against the Muslim Community."

An interesting and well balanced article about Luton from todays New Statesman

Good Migrations

"Luton – described as a breeding ground for militants and a tinderbox of racial tension – has an image problem. The Home Secretary and the press predict a riot, but local people beg to differ."

"A former industrial town situated on the edge of the Home Counties, it has long been looked down on by its well-to-do neighbours. Its diverse population is the story of postwar British immigration in miniature: from the 1950s onwards, successive waves of workers - Irish, Caribbean, Asian, African, eastern European - have made this place their home. Since the 11 September 2001 attacks, its large south Asian Muslim population (30,000 in a town of 184,000) has been under intense scrutiny, and particularly so since Luton-based Islamic extremists were alleged to have been involved in the 2005 London Tube bombings."

Kelvin Hopkins, Labour MP for Luton North since 1997, has spent three decades working in the town. Unlike his Labour colleague Moran, Hopkins has come through the expenses scandal well, winning praise for his frugal approach to parliamentary allowances.

"People change over time," the MP says. "There is a parallel with the Irish Catholic community and their integration into Britain. If you go back 40 years, there was deep prejudice against Irish Catholics; many of them felt very alien in this non-religious country that had dominated and brutalised them over the previous century. Over time, they've totally relaxed, particularly since the Good Friday Agreement. Now we have a Luton Irish forum, [and] a St Patrick's Day parade in the town. It's fantastic. But you couldn't imagine that happening 30 or 40 years ago."

    Sam, I answered your query above, but I will say it again - one last time. You are not a registered or identified member of Mudcat, and you have no status here. You are not welcome here - you are merely tolerated, and you are being closely watched. We do not allow discussion of Mudcat editing policy in threads, and you have violated that prohibition several times today. If you wish to discuss Mudcat editing, contact me by e-mail, joe@mudcat.org.
    What I said was that we would allow one thread discussing the BNP to be active at a time. However, I said that we will also allow separate threads for events, such as this one discussing the Folk Against Fascism protests at Luton and other locations. As has been recognized by some posters, the discussion is curtailed when it moves away from discussion of the event.
    But that is of no concern to you, since you are merely an uninvited guest here, and you have not even done us the courtesy of telling us who you really are.
    The rest of you - please carry on with the discussion and stict to the topic. Sam's query has been answered, and that's the end of it.

I met 'MBSGeorge' on mudcat some years ago.
Despite my initial excusable 'mistake', she never attempted to hide her gender, indeed listening in mudchat to her trials of pregnancy and her overwhelming joy at the birth of her son would have left no one in any doubt that hadn't met her in person.

Do not underestimate the BNP!

They are not all the loud and foul mouthed ignorant thugs I encountered at Codnor!

In an attempt to gain the respectability and the large budget that went with election to the European parliament, Griffin (he studied History and Law at Cambridge) put some of his swastica and Hitler tatooed bodyguards into smart suits in order to spread the lie that the BNP were representatives of the working class, upholders of Christianity and not racists.

Subsequent UK governments have sadly betrayed many people in this country leaving people with a young child, like Georgina, struggling to find appropiate and affordable accomodation.

It is the very people like this that the 'new' fascists have preyed on with their all too readily believed lie that 'foreigners' have priority for housing easily disproved by simple figures and facts but flaunted in the headlines of the right wing papers too!

It is exactly the people like Georgina we should be reaching out to with equal concern and action for their plight and the truth about the racist policies of the BNP

The dyed in the wool racists, like the trolls on this site, will never be convinced by either argument or insult and, indeed, the people we DO need to convince will only be put off by personal abuse, and who can blame them?

Georgina is in no doubt what myself and others she knows feel about her association with the BNP and its anti semitism and racist agenda and membership policy

She has never espoused racist beliefs here (or any where else that I'm aware of) and I think a personal attack on her on the basis of a well known 'nickname' is inexcusable.

1. There is a third option for MBS George. She could admit that she was wrong and rejoin decent society. Incidentally, the plight of the single mother is not universally pitied. Many, from the same side of the looking glass as the BNP assert that single women flock in droves to have children in order to be able to live a life of feckless luxury on benefits and without working (or without declaredly working). I have close awareness of the falsity of this picture.

2. The issue of whether to identify and target any such viper on our bosom is one for the site owner and the mods. As we are sometimes told, it is not a democracy.

3. Bill: there are two options. The alternatives are these: either you have not thought this through or you are a saboteur seeking to divide this community (yet further) by inference for reasons related to the central topic of this thread. The night is young, the bottle is full, and there is nothing on TV, so I will explain.


The cloning of mudcat persona started shortly after the foundation of FaF. Indeed some who were more prominent in FaF were targetted first. FaF had its fakebook group. That was what it was. People ther referred to the discussion here of FaF and people here referred to the fakebook group. There seem to have been BNP twerps on fakebook for ages. It is a sad reflection on humanity. The FaF group will have led them here.

Similarly, even BNP twerps can use a search engine. Searching for BNP ("oh, look, ma, I'm on the internet") will have found them the adverse references here. Some sought to enter debate and were trounced (or, in their sub-human language, "pwned").

That is likely to have driven them to seek some playground level revenge - but, politically more importantly, since the BNP sought to arrogate English folk music song and ritual to itself, it will have driven them to create Aunt Sallies - the evil twins of the 'catters who trounced them in debate here. Those evil twins could be called upon in the surreal world of fakebook, and beyond, to discredit opponents of the BNP - and FaF. It makes sense, in their essentially undemocratic form of debate to proceed as they have done.

But what of your great point? Do the BNPers know us? Well, given that they can work a search engine it is easy for them to find ALL posts here, by name and reference. They don't need the mudcat search engine or its member only features to do that. It is part of the NP ethos that the white race cannot get jobs because teh ethnic minorities are simultanwoulsly claiming benefits and taking all the jobs, so the hard-core BNPers must be at home all day with nothng to do but watch daytime TV or trawl the internet (because, save for the reported convictions for benefit fraud, of course they would not stoop to workig while claiming) So your point falls.

The fact that they do not in fact "know" us is established by the recent rantings of Sam Hudson (or was it Leah Green?) - who failed wholly to understand (why am I not surprised) a post of mine here and produced on their wall a pile of lunatic, infantile, pathetic, Walter Mitty (or to them, since they cannot read classic literature, its vocabulary being beyond them) "Chuck") gibberish about us fantasising about our 007 secret agents.

So, Bill, if you have not done your homework, can you really be here to make the point you say you are making? If not, then what? QED.

She has never espoused racist beliefs here (or any where else that I'm aware of)
BNPGeorge has been asked plenty of times - openly and by PM - to state her position on the BNP racist policies and history, and has consistently refused to do so. Remember, she's not merely a supporter - she publicly sought election for a racist and fascist party on a manifesto which included 'repatriation' and segregation.

and by the way, i am a newbie and even i knew that goerge was short for georgina, and those of you who have followed these threads from the first: what should i do, thread will know this. i think someone mentioned george and you all want blood.

There are no good excuses for joining the BNP (other than to infiltrate and rot them from within, which I fully expect is already happening both officially and unofficially).

The policies and actions of any group that a person affiliates herself or himself with impacts how others view that person.

It should come as no surprise that people who suppport multi-culturalism and equal rights under the law for all would have very serious issues with the BNP political party which is anathema to those positions.

A song that is the subject of a current Mudcat thread addresses the reality that what a person associates him or herself with with, and what that person does in his or her life speaks volumes about that person:

SPEAK FOR ME
May the work I have done speak for me.
May the work I have done speak for me.
If I fall short of my goal
Someone else will take a hold
May the work I have done speak for me.

Children I've helped raise
Students I have taught
Songs I have sung
Friends I have made
Rights I have won
Votes I have cast
Love I have shared
Land I have loved

what i meant was we should stop seeing the differences between everyone, like skin colour, disabilities, gay or straight blonde brunnette, stuff like that. none of these things matter, it is what is inside a persons heart that counts(and i don't mean having a pace maker).
we all have individual personalities and because of this i have learnt alot about myself.
if we all thought the same way about everything, we would never get to see things in a different light and we would stagnate.

You're perfectly clear Jeddy, I was more padding out what you said than arguing with it.

In my view we should celebrate how differences between cultures, life experiences etc enrich us as a society, accepting the right to be different and not trying to impose a single homogenised version of what a society should be, be-it through eugenics-based far right ideology, or the extreme centralisation-based ideologies of the far left, or even the monetarist ideologies where cultures are more and more shaped by corporation like McDonalds and Tescos which, in my opinion does more damage to cultural identities around the world than migration ever will.

it may sound simplistic, but truths generally are, and an inescapable truth is that the foundation of any society should be based on people being nice to each other, and if people held that truth in their hearts, then it would become impossible for the hate-mongers to divide cultures. Without that division the hate-mongers can never thrive.

There are problems in the world: climate, hunger, disease the fact that we live on a planet which can be pretty hostile to humans - but humans are resilient, and great adapters. If humanity put as much energy into co-operation and creativity to overcome the problems as it does into fueling hate and paranoia then so much more can be achieved.

Any way that is my bud' hodne (be nice) speech. After that back to scrutinising hate-mongers and countering their divisiveness.

to have our children grow up to know right from wrong.
to have them grow up in the best way possible.
to be happy and carefree as much as possible.
to have friends and family to rely on, if the need arises.


the differences should be noticed and learnt from. but it should make no difference on how we interact with one another.

lisa, shelly and 'sam' will never know the peace of mind we seek for ourselves and others.

The big obstacle to keep the BNP supporters from rallying is the under-the-surface

Stringsinger: Whenever there is a totalitarian theocracy threatening insecure people

I'm not taking a pop at you but I would like to "freeze-frame" at this point because it would be very useful to deconstruct that statement.

You are a liberal-minded poster and obviously not a BNP sympathiser so it's important to step outside of the conversation for a moment and ask yourself why you might feel that Islam, or Muslims, constitute an organised institution (such as a totalitarian theocracy) that might threaten people. Can you identify any evidence for that particular belief or perception?

You see it's a right-wing tactic to propagate low-level scare stories and misinformation that has exactly the effect of leading even the most decent people to believe that they know a thing to be true, when in fact it is not.

When people restate their assumptions about Muslims or Islam, they often realise that of a group of 1.2bn human beings, all the assumptions held tend to come from the constant media insinuations of Taleban, bin Laden, Abu Hamsa, Ahmedinejad and the Iranian Revolutionary council of 12 clerics.

George W. Bush invaded Iraq, with all its consequences, because God told him to (GWB actually said this to Jacques Chirac in an official, minuted meeting and you can read about it in Chirac's memoirs) but Christian's aren't painted as warmongers. 12 individual Muslims on 11/9/2001 killed one hundredth (3,000 dead) of GWB's death-toll (about 300,000 on the lowest estimates) and yet those 12 lunatics somehow managed to seal the fate of the other 1.2bn Muslims in the eyes of some observers?

In the face of a poisonous media that hungers for the extremes of all things and has no interest in normal, mundane or average, one has to be very careful about realising the difference between what one is told and what one actually *knows* to be true.

Or to put it another way, there is a big difference between fact and opinion.

Contrariwise, Iran is a totalitarian theocracy, and many do categorise the "Christian Right" in the US as hateful warmongering sexist homophobic fascist crusader bastards.
