The BNP farce continues

In the run up to the elections, the BNP have proved their competence once again after their webmaster quit:

The BNP’s 2010 campaign has descended into a fratricidal bloodbath after Simon Bennett, the BNP’s web-master, attacked the BNP leader Nick Griffin MEP on the party’s website and nationalist internet forums.

The extraordinary episode started yesterday, when Bennett removed the BNP’s website replacing it with an angry message aimed at Griffin and Jim Dowson.

The BNP are a threat; their racism and violence is deeply worrying. But we must never forget that their policies have been exposed, and that they are a shower in many ways:

Burnley:

The BNP’s position deteriorated even further when another of its councillors, Luke Smith, smashed a bottle into the face of a fellow BNP supporter. In the resulting by-election the BNP vote halved and the party slipped down into third place.


Blackburn:

The BNP did have one councillor in Blackburn, Robin Evans, but last September he walked out of the party. He then wrote a letter to his former BNP colleagues denouncing Blackburn BNP as a party of drug dealers and football hooligans … Last year Searchlight reported that Evans could not follow council business. “This is all mumbo jumbo,” he told fellow councillors. “I don’t understand a word of it.” The mumbo-jumbo he was referring to was the council budget!

Sandwell:

Last summer Sandwell’s two BNP councillors thought they would outfox their political rivals by proposing a motion to the full council calling on the government to stop sending asylum seekers to the borough.. They knew full well that the motion would fall but they would then be able to tell electors that the BNP was the only party that opposed the arrival of more asylum seekers in the area.

To their surprise the motion was passed with an amendment. The BNP happily supported the new motion quite unaware that the changes reversed everything the BNP originally wanted. So the BNP councillors voted for a motion that sympathised with the plight of asylum seekers, condemned the government for being too harsh on them, attacked the press and politicians who tried to whip up racism and called on the council to accept their responsibility to take more.

Stoke:

Steve Batkin, the BNP’s Stoke councillor, has also failed to impress. During his election campaign last year he questioned the Holocaust and claimed that Jewish people only made an issue of it to make money. His performance has not improved since then. He missed a few meetings early on but now just sits in silence. After eight months in post he had to ask council officials to explain what abstaining meant.

Earlier this year it emerged that he had not paid his council tax since becoming a councillor. He claimed this was because of the long queues of asylum seekers at the council tax office but of course this was nonsense because that office has nothing to do with asylum seekers. However, while he dodged his tax, he did find time to claim his full councillor’s allowance of £100 a week.

    I’ve just finished making a series of assorted videos taking the mick out of BNP/EDL on YouTube. The response from the fascists was astonishing – not just the bigotted abuse, but the stupidity, sheer absurdity and barefaced dishonesty of the comments was an abject lesson for me. These organizations are home to some seriously dysfunctional human beings.

    Robin Evans is listed as the BNP’s candidate for Blackburn, so he must have rejoined them

    Rumbold,

    Any news on their barking candidate in Barking?

  4. Rumbold — on 5th May, 2010 at 9:20 pm  

    You mean Mr Griffin, whose ancestors are immigrants?

  5. KJB — on 5th May, 2010 at 9:48 pm  

    Hilarious! Nice one, Rumbold.:-D

    Pass me the popcorn, Rumbold. :)

    This is farcical.

    I expect Griffin to one day whip off the face mask to reveal a grinning Jeremy Beadle telling us that we’ve been framed.

    I think we’ve been through this before.
    The BNP people are not so concerned with racial purity
    They seem to welcome the earlier mix of what they might call ‘Britons’ …. including the Hguenots and Jews.
    Even I’d guess Boris Johnson, who’s grandfather was a Turkish muslim.

    The problem with Muslim’s is that they come to England not to start a new life, you want to bring your’s with you and nobody want’s it. We have to change our way of life to accommodate yours, we have to pay for you job less low life’s, you breed like rat’s, halal is cruel to animal’s, you treat women poorly, your respect for other culture’s and religion’s is non existant. King George sorted you out right first time, this will happen again soon because the world is getting sick of you. ELIF AIR AB DINICH!

We have to change our way of life to accommodate yours, we have to pay for you job less low life’s, you breed like rat’s, keeping Staffordshire Bull Terriers is cruel to the animal, you treat women poorly, your respect for other culture’s and religion’s is non existent. The Jews and anti-fascists sorted you out right first time at Cable Street, this will happen again soon because the world is getting sick of you. SHALOM!

    I too, am a nationalist, and object to the hideous abuse of the English language displayed above.

  12. Sofia — on 6th May, 2010 at 4:43 pm  

    Death to Islam – you really need to go back to school and learn some basic grammar and where to place apostrophes…

  13. Sofia — on 6th May, 2010 at 4:44 pm  

    It completely proves my point that only idiots vote bnp, or those who didn’t really get past their G.C.S.Es
