    100,000 signatures wanted for anti-BNP campaign

    by Sunny on 2nd July, 2009 at 4:49 pm    

    Hope Not Hate have sent out this email request:

    In just two weeks the BNP will be taking their seats in the European Parliament. We need to send the strongest possible message that they are not there in our name. Over 80,000 people have already done just this by signing our Not in my Name petition - I want you to sign it next. All you need to do is click this link - you can add your name with just one click:

    I need your help in showing that Griffin and Brons don’t represent us - that they don’t speak for Britain. I’m currently organising who we’re going to hand our petition in to at the European Parliament on July 14th and I want to make sure we have as many names on it as possible. Please sign up now and then invite all of your friends to do the same:

    Thank you,

      The BNP don’t speak for Britain, but sadly they do speak for the people who voted for them. We must remember that the BNP have not muscled their way into their seats by undemocratic processes and we can’t use undemocratic processes to force them out. They have been voted into those seats by people of the Northwest and Yorkshire and Humber region. We can only rid of the BNP by educating those people who are inclined to vote for them and offering them politically and morally superior alternatives.

      if they were elected, they speak for them, their electorat. it is a part of Britain. who speak for Britain? you, Sunny?

    3. Leon — on 2nd July, 2009 at 6:13 pm  

      I DO. *raises sword in threatening manner*

    4. Andy — on 2nd July, 2009 at 7:45 pm  

      If all the people who signed that petition had actually gone out and voted in the one election which actually MATTERS, we wouldn’t be in this mess.

      Well of course they do not speak for you. But then they do represent the 950,000 people who voted for them. I take it that your view is that democracy is great until the public elect the ‘wrong’ people.

      My comments were removed. Surely such ‘anti fascists’ wouldnt deny freedom of speech?
      Just as the BNP, who took close to a million votes, dont speak for you, 100,000 scruffy geeks dont speak for me. However, I wouldnt dream of trying to stop you having your say.
      Who are the fascists again?

    9. dashenka — on 3rd July, 2009 at 12:31 pm  

      good point, John! that is what i am always talking about - democracy not for every one

      I thought you may like this little gem from the so called fascist site:-
      In both the North West and the Yorkshire & Humber regions the BNP MEPs are setting up a social fund to directly benefit youngsters in their constituencies.

      The fund will be used to buy sport and recreational equipment and to provide financial support for associations that help to give youngsters a sense of purpose.

      Nick and Andrew will be contributing to the fund, via the European Parliament, by donating their excess travel and accommodation expenses.
      It is common practice amongst MEPs for this balance from the generous allowances to be kept for personal gain, but the BNP’s commitment to clean-up politics mean this money will now go to those in the constituency.
      Both MEPs have already pledged to give 10% of their wages to independent community groups in their constituencies. Where are the other parties. Still with their noses in the trough I’m afraid.
      As an aside, why is it OK for the IRA, (who have tried to kill the Prime Minister and have murdered several thousand troops and civilians),to be MEPs but it is wrong for Mr Griffin and Mr Brons, who have done nothing to my knowledge, except of course to express an opinion which our Sunny boy does not agree with.

      “Who are the fascists again?”

      Same as they ever were, ‘Well, what a surprise’. Same as they ever were…
