When I resigned as the Harrogate and District organiser over the mis-treatment of party colleagues and the sacking of others, I did so with a heavy heart.I did however maintain my membership as the BNP is the only way forward and when this mess was sorted out I would have taken the reins again. However this will now not be possible as due to 'underhand tactics' by the newly appointed Yorkshire Regional Organiser A. Marsden and a Harrogate Member, I have had my organisers position filled by this Harrogate member. Without any consultation with me, the new RO has appointed a member with no experience at all of running a branch or of running an election campaign. I make the last point because it is now obvious that the Griffin is running round like a headless chicken appointing 'anyone' at all who will take on the jobs of organisers and fund-holders, just to show the public that there is a BNP presence in their area. This is bloody stupid as the best people for these jobs are the very people who love this party so much that they resigned in protest at what was being done to it and its hardest workers. Perhaps the question Griffin should answer is, why are you edging out your most successful local organisers and fund-holders and not talking to them to build bridges, why do you not value the hard work they have done to bring the party to were it is now. If this blind appointing of local organisers and fund-holders continues it will undoubtedly affect our effectiveness in the future.
