Being a practically minded person, it is unlike me to write so much, this is my third written piece in less than two weeks which I think is a record for me. I’m sure you’ll forgive me therefore for any mistakes you may pick-out; these fingers are far more accustomed to taking cars apart than they are typing on a laptop.
I understand that the set of circumstances as they are at the time of writing this, put me in a position whereby a reader could construe that I may be indulging in the moment or even seeking attention, when perhaps all has already been said and, so to speak, the cards are laying on the table for all to see. This is certainly not the case. I’m writing simply because I made a promise to myself that I shall stand by my convictions and the stance I made with Sadie, Kenny, Nicholla, Ian and many others. I will see this situation through to the very end with them and I will not back down. As true nationalists, we all have a moral obligation to do so, because we have seen our cause so wronged by people we once trusted.
Last Saturday 15th December, was for me a day I had hoped I would never have to come to terms with. I attended a meeting of the British National Party with a range of questions and emotions coiled like a spring in my head, that the prospect of airing in public left me feeling frustrated, anxious but still hopeful. This hope for me revolved around the prospect that Mr Griffin could finally find the decency to somehow stop his resentful inflexibility that is souring his reasoning, and making him so bitter.
Sadie and I, plus two other councillors and several Party members from Broxtowe in Nottinghamshire, drove down to the meeting venue in
The meeting hall rental slot was not long, which made me question the validity of Mr Griffin’s lengthy delay and whether or not he regarded a shorter meeting an additional bonus with less time to address difficult questions from the audience at the end. Nick finally entered flanked by Party Security and sat at the top table next to Sadie.
Sadie spoke first and asked a series of straight and honest questions, the questions that so many people have been asking up and down the country.
Why did you illegally record conversations in my home without my permission? Why did you order Party Security to enter my home through deception and steal my property? Why, although you have broken several very serious laws, are you still refusing to return my property? Why have you totally ignored, abused or ridden roughshod over the very foundations and constitution of this Party?
It’s an interesting point, that during the development of this whole situation, Mr Griffin has been assuming somehow that the law of this land is on your side if you shout the loudest to the most people. Well sorry Nick, you are sadly mistaken and regardless to your tantrums the fact remains that you have unashamedly broken several law’s and you are going to be made accountable for your actions. Further to this blatant display of conceit, Nick’s answers during the meeting were quite honestly the most perfect example of a stereotypical politician lying through his back teeth, that I have ever witnessed.
He manoeuvred to turn the questions around on Sadie as he tried to defend the utter mess he has created through the decisions he has and is continuing to make. How a person, even a well tuned politician, can try and defend what is clearly indefensible still amazes me. The level of inflexibility displayed was mind-boggling, yet Sadie maintained throughout a very high degree of composure and out and out sheer courage and wrestled with a politician that had once flattened Jeremy Paxman on national television. This was truly a David and Goliath situation, and as the tale goes, Goliath got just a little more than he bargained for. Sadie handled herself with an assertiveness and professionalism that far outweighed her experience.
Sadie used the simple truth of the matter sticking to the facts and was met with a concoction of mistruths and pre-packaged/pre-prepared answers from
Since that meeting the situation has turned and twisted as more and more desperation has seeped into Mr Griffin’s deeply flawed position with the cold light of day about to break on the horizon. I cannot help feel a degree of discomfort as he resorts to asking others to lie for him such as Simon Darby. Simon was quoted on BBC Newsnight 18th December as saying that the Party had rid itself of hard-line ‘neo-Nazi’ elements. The fact that Sadie, Kenny and Steve have been instrumental in modernising our Party and speaking out against such elements that have held us back through the years had strangely appeared to have slipped his memory. This of course came in the same week that Mr Darby also said on Radio 4 that all us ‘malcontents’ were actually in fact all left-wing state agents! It is apparent that Mr Darby decides whether we are all Nazi’s or working for Searchlight magazine/New-Labour depending which lie the interviewer is more likely to believe. Truly deplorable.
To make matters worse, no less than
Even more significant is the fact that until last week, he has never actually ever been a member of our Party; how convenient that he suddenly now feels in necessary to join us. This serves us all with an example of the type of people that Mr Griffin surrounds himself with. Non-members, an assortment of little known nationalist ‘personalities’ from around the globe and various other ‘Griffin flavour’s of the month’, all of which clearly appear far more important to him than the very stalwart lifeblood activists of this Party that make it tick from one week to the next, that often work ridiculously long hours for little more than the gift of hope for our children’s future. (Barnes claimed on his blog that he had now joined, but quoted the wrong membership fee, so whether he has actually joined is debatable – Ed).
The fact that Mr Griffin simply does not listen to those he should, while pandering to some of nationalism’s most cranky and abnormal characters I find utterly incomprehensible, and very worrying indeed. I personally believe that he has now completely exhausted all rational thought. I am not sure how he will pull his damaged reputation from this situation intact, as he will increasingly resort to tactics more akin to an Eastern European mafia boss than a Party Chairman that is supposed to be upholding the will of the people, for the people. This, I am in no doubt will be confirmed in the coming days or weeks as he at long last slowly comes to terms with the fact that scores of the Party’s brightest and best people have dared to turn to him, look him in the eye and demand he listen to them and not be intimidated by him any longer. This is an unfeasible situation for an authoritarian to find themselves in. Often such a person is simply not equipped with how to deal with such a dilemma and therefore will react aggressively, contradictorily and seemingly without any end game plan in place. This can be substantiated with the way in which Mr Griffin is now hurling lies and defamatory insults at people that have for years immersed themselves in this Party’s gradual and hard fought campaign for growth, often at great personal cost. Vermin, government agents, left-wing infiltrators, malcontents and hard-line neo-Nazis. These are just a small selection of the metaphors openly voiced during meetings recently attended by Mr Griffin to describe those standing against his dogmatic inflexibility.
These are quite obviously not consolatory words designed to bring this situation to a positive conclusion for the benefit of the Party, but instead words designed to scare or distress other members into turning away from those supporting us. This all forms part of Mr Griffin’s plan to hold on at all costs without giving an inch towards meeting our requests. He is hanging onto the hope that we will ‘run out of steam’ during the
Very early in the morning of 20th December, in another desperate attempt to defame Mr Griffin’s internal dissenters, an unlawful attack on us has been posted on the BNP website main-page.
The mere fact that every single word from the emails alleged to have been taken from Sadie’s stolen personal computer is an illegal act in itself, and that the posting of these alleged emails could cause the Party massive injury does not seem to bother Mr Griffin one iota. He simply does not care if the Party suffers massive and irreparable damage, provided he can still state that he has total control of the Party; this is all he is interested in. Jon Cruddas MP, has already stood up in Parliament to pressurise the police to act against the Party because of the illegal actions of Mr Griffin, and the fact that Griffin has now compounded these crimes further, can serve us with no greater example of the true nature of Mr Griffin. I now expect unfortunately, that other MP’s will join Cruddas now after this latest attack.
In all of this, I have yet to have mentioned the fact that as a serving BNP Councillor, Sadie has been temporarily but severely restricted in serving the people of her constituency due to the theft of her computer with all her council work on it. Once again I do not suppose for a minute that Mr Griffin could really care less as to what the 44% BNP vote in her area would think about their councillor having the work she was proceeding with stolen on the orders of the Party Chairman no less!
This latest attack on the BNP website is so full of hideous lies it is almost beyond belief. To write so shamelessly that
Well, the evidence is plentiful and there for all members and supporters to see. Mr Griffin must be openly challenged now before it is too late. It is now up to all of us to stand firm and absolutely insist that the changes we want to make actually take place. Act now for this Party, do this for yourself and for your children so we can once again move forward together in 2008.
