BNP conference to be in Blackpool again - at great expense to the membership

Once again our contacts inside the BNP have come up trumps with the information that the British National Party's 'Annual' Conference (its weak attempt to act in some way similar to a normal political party) will again be held at the ghastly New Kimberley Hotel at Blackpool.

The New Kimberley, a fast-decaying hotel at 585-589 New South Promenade, Blackpool FY4 1NQ - is run by Peter and Susie Metcalfe and can be reached at 01253 341184.

The conference is to be held on the weekend of 16th/17th/18th November and we are calling for a demonstration right in front of it at midday on Saturday November 17th.

Regular readers will recall that we got over two hundred protestors and loads of speakers up to the very successful demo last November. Maps and more details to follow as we get nearer the date.

Naturally, nothing the BNP does would be complete without an example of its startling financial ineptitude, and this conference, two months before it's even due to take place, provides us with a little classic that should have a few BNP members seething.

A number of telephone enquiries to the New Kimberley and a chat with a couple of highly-disgruntled ex-guests reveals that the current average cost of a room (B and B) for the night is £22.50 - or £27.50 if they throw in an evening meal. Given that the maximum number of guests the hotel can accomodate is 100 (it's a bit less but we're being generous to the incompetent BNP treasurer and rounding up) that means the cost of hiring the entire hotel for the two nights of the conference is either £4500 or £5500 if the attendees demand their evening meal of meat and potato pie.

Sadly for the party's membership, the treasurer, or whatever idiot was responsible for the booking, never bothered to do the maths and has forked out £7000 for the weekend, effectively giving away the nice round figure of either £1500 or £2500, a waste of 50-80 membership fees, a pretty good example of the contempt Nick Griffin and co have for the member's money.

The words 'piss-up' and 'brewery' spring to mind.

Talking of which - according to one of our correspondents who keeps tabs on this sort of thing from inside the party, the BNP managed to splash out around £10000 in the bar over that single weekend, an average of £50 per head per night assuming there were a hundred members stuffed into the bar. They'd have done better to have spent the money on booking into a better hotel.

Watch this space for more information as we get it...

The hotel cost the BNP nothing.

Members pay for their own room and pay seperately for their own food. The going rate for a cheese roll was £3 last year and the catering was also done by the BNP.
The owners of the hotel are good friends of the ex Blackpool organiser, Roy Goodwin, so I'd like to know where you get the figure of £7,000 from. It costs the members and not the BNP.

'Members pay for their own room and pay seperately for their own food. The going rate for a cheese roll was £3 last year and the catering was also done by the BNP.'

And you idiots can't see what's right under your noses. You're being ripped off again. The BNP effectively buys the exclusive use of the hotel for the two nights and sells it on to you suckers. How much does the party charge you for each bedspace? We're assuming you're charged the going rate but it wouldn't surprise us to learn that you're paying considerably more.

Dickie Barnowl said...

£3 for a cheese roll that costs about 10p to make. It's no wonder the BNP likes to do the catering. You people are a joke.

Still keeping busy, Ketlan?

'Magazines such as Searchlight, and websites such as those run by Marxist thugs such as UAF, used to be mainly designed to mobilise leftists into organising against us with pickets, demonstrations and leaflet drops.
Increasingly, however, this part of their operation is handicapped by their sheer lack of numbers.
As a result they are spending more and more time churning out increasingly hysterical propaganda aimed not at their activists, but at ours.'

Sadly for you we are heading for the political mainstream. You won't win.

Already done and I can tell you that the hotels to either side are furious at the Crap Kimberley for bringing the BNP in.

Big deal. A small picture of a small part of the demo. We still had a damn sight more outside braving the elements than you had inside drinking yourselves into oblivion and listening to Griffin telling you lies.

Yesterdays? What are you on about? You were asked how many more councillors you had NOW than you had this time last year. Do try to concentrate.

It's obviously escaped your notice that UAF is not a political party. You people really need to pay attention.

"The New Kimberley, a fast-decaying hotel at 585-589 New South Promenade, Blackpool FY4 1NQ - is run by Peter and Susie Metcalfe and can be reached at 01253 341184."

A number of points come to mind

1/. Is this fast decaying hotel any form of health or fire hazard.

2/. I wonder what the position is over VAT on this event


Now with the "catering" subcontracted to the BNP I think questions aught to be asked of Pubilc Health and HM Revenue and Customs about suitability and proper record keeping on the VAT side, and on food storage.

Perhaps some kind AFA working in public health might formulate the questions to ask.

With Griffins involvement some kind of VAT fiddle is a racing certainty. I can think of a few byself - It would be a pity if a VAT rumage was to occour, and the VAT man don't like late VAT returns.

Perhaps the appropriate information should be laid. Petty harresment, but very effective especially if it removes any chance of profit in the future

Mr Finger's beancounter said...

Dear Mr Lancasteruaf,

On behalf my client, Mr Fingers, I must object to a couple of issues aired in your webthing.

1. VAT liability. My client does not have a liability re VAT. Case law - Regina v Albion Life, R. v Avocado Mortgages, R. v "wanna buy a cheap horse", R. v "need a skip mate" - shows clearly that VAT liability does not occur on stupid, useless scams that don't raise £50!

2. Cheese rolls. Some of your contributors allege sharp practice in selling cheese rolls for £3. Can I explain that the steep mark-up is to allow my client's party to raise funds for its valuable campaigning work, and its members are happy to contribute in this way. Any "profit" is devoted entirely to party campaigning. If anyone doubts this they need only study the party's audited accounts which . . . .

Oh shit, I've just spotted the flaw in that argument!

Sincerely,

Nicholas Barely-Numerate

'Obviously', I suppose, if you've an irony by-pass. My point was actually that you don't do anything constructive.

Nope, not a political party and not a great many other things either. A thorn in the side, perhaps, except you'd probably be flattered by the description. How about 'waste of space'? Would that do?

Well, I was faced with temptation every time we came ashore after run around the Horn from South Australia - But, I mean. Tupping the Sheep and Cattle- We left that to the Griffins, and other perverts from Powys.

I do hope that the BNP are not into bestiality. I mean the thought of encouraging a drunken Ewe upstairs in a run down hotel in Blackpool makes one wonder !!!!

I would guess it would be Chris Vanns the Burnley organiser who would be organising the catering.

Vanns did the catering at the RWB at got slagged to pieces because of his crap food and inability to have enough of it.

Its a variation on the "long firm fraud".

AND THIS IS ALL HYPOTHETICAL ,

Players: Con man and Mark (and Con Mans dupes)

Con man starts borrowing/obtaining credit for small amounts, These are paid promptly. The Cons credir history is marked as good.
Eventually and just as a "one off" the Mark lends/gives credit for iarge sums. If the conman works it properly many various marks have granted credit etc.

When enouhg goods/money is in the bag the conman runs away, leaving the mark, and his dupes to carry the can.

Sound familliar ?

Any bets that either this year or next the owners of a decayed Blackpool hotel will give credit to the BNP for a block booking.

The BNP will on charge thier members an inflated price. This inflated price will include VAT at 17.5% despite the "agency" not being VAT registered.

The block booking invoice from the hotel will include VAT.

The BNP will not pay this invoice sighting technical inaccuracies.

The hotel will "write this account off" and recover the VAT element as part of their VAT input. (That means that Customs and Revenue will pay the money out)

Neat little fraud ?

Could I respctfully suggest that Lancaster UAF and/or Gerry Gable try and obtain any receipts given amd publish exact photocopies.

Give us a copy of an alledged VAT reciept, and I doubt if any commrade will fail to test its authenticity in a few seconds.

Or to miss quote Rudyard Kipling

If you should meet King Georges men,
Dressed in Red and Gold,
Oh you be careful what is said ...."
