    BNP councillor and EU candidate in trouble

    by Sunny on 1st June, 2009 at 5:28 pm    

    Some more ‘good behaviour’ from the fascist party:

    The leader of the BNP group on Barking and Dagenham Council, Cllr Bob Bailey, is due before magistrates this week after being arrested on suspicion of drink-driving on Thursday night.

    Cllr Bailey, of Sylvan Avenue, Chadwell Heath, who is also a candidate in Thursday’s European elections, has been charged with failing to provide a specimen of breath, having no insurance and no MOT after being stopped by police in London Road, Romford, at around 11.20pm. He is due before Havering magistrates on Friday.

      There’s a surprise.

      Question for anyone who might know:
      Do the BNP councillors actually get re-elected or are they all on their first terms?
      Just wondering if people really do only vote BNP as a “protest” or if they are happy to be represented by that shower.

      On the rare occasions they actually make it to a second election (they’re usually forced to resign because they don’t know what day it is or charged with something) they have quite a high turnover, the best example in terms of time would obviously be burnley where they made their ‘breakthrough’ in 2003 and became the second largest party there, they’re now the smallest.

      The twelve in Barking and Dagenham were all elected for the first time in 2006. If we can hold the BNP this week in the Eurp election then we will be throwing all the troops into outer East London next year to prevent them being reelected. Just off for a bit of tube leafleting but I will get back to you later.

      Just shows the moral-superiority of the British-born eh?
