BNP councillor David Enderby loses appeal against violent assaults

Redditch British National Party councillor David Enderby has lost his appeal against criminal convictions for assaulting his estranged wife and mother-in-law.

Enderby lashed out after flying into a rage and barging into a family birthday celebration. During the melée, he grabbed his wife, Jane, and his mother-in-law, Noel Campion, causing bruising, as children at the party screamed and cried. Enderby also picked up a 14-year-old girl and flung her across the living room.

After he was manhandled outside, he drove off but was later arrested by police and spent the night in the cells before being charged.

Enderby, aged 46, of Winyates East, pleaded not guilty to the three assaults when he appeared at Kidderminster Magistrates Court in January but was convicted and fined £300 with £100 costs. But he appealed against the convictions and a two-day hearing was held at Worcester Crown Court, ending on Friday. All three appeals were dismissed and he was ordered to pay £200 towards the Crown's costs.

Judge Daniel Pearce-Higgins QC said: "What should have been a happy event turned into a disaster."

The appeal hearing was told that Enderby and his wife had split up in January 2004 and she had gone to live with her mother and stepfather in Greenlands. She had taken their three children with her.

Divorce proceedings have been started. In the original divorce petition, Mrs Enderby said her husband had been violent towards her during the marriage, a claim Enderby disputed.

The assaults took place in June last year after Enderby had gone by arrangement to the extended family's home to deliver birthday presents. But, according to John Brotherton, barrister for the Crown, he flew into a rage when he walked into the house uninvited and was told by his estranged wife and mother-in-law to leave.

Enderby then barged into the living room to retrieve the presents he had taken, which is when the assaults took place, the court heard. In evidence, former soldier Enderby, who was elected to the council less than two months before the incident, claimed he never assaulted anyone and that he himself had been the victim of assault.

Enderby said he had been held so tightly round the throat he was unable to speak afterwards. He added he had been trying to get out of the house when he was manhandled and had not been attempting to resist.

Does this now mean that this low life who gets his kicks from beating up women now has to resign as a councillor?

Sami said...

If this peice of shit was in any ot the other parties the BNP would be screaming for him to be kicked out. Instead of that they either stay quiet or claim innocense (Kevin Hughes). Vermin.

No, it doesn't, and what an outrage that is. He was done back in January and if he'd received a six-month prison sentence, which he should have, he'd have been booted off the council automatically. It's shameful that he didn't do the decent thing and resign. Anyone with an ounce of decency would have.

thank you for the response to my question about him resigning, i must admit to being gobsmacked, that he can be found guilty, go thru an appeal loose the appeal and still remain a councillor. What kind of message does that send out? there should be a demand that he does resign nothing more nothing less is acceptable.

How can HE now deal with any case work as a councillor from a victim of domestic violence?

Where are the womens groups within that council area? why are they not lobbying and demanding he steps down.

He certainly wouldnt get away with it round here.

You can just hear Nick Giffin now - "trumped up charges", "ex-serviceman", "fought for our country", "faked evidence", "a great patriot" and so on.

Excellent points. Maybe a few emails to the Redditch Advertiser's Letters Page are in order.

As it appears from the article that this animal also assaulted a 14 year old girl, and committed these acts in front of other children who were obviously traumatised to such a level that they were screaming perhaps a referral to Childrens Services for Redditch Council would not go amiss.

Also perhaps a check should be made that this animal posing as a Councillor is not a member of any committees that would bring him into contact with children, young people or vunerable people.

There is more than one way to skin a putrid cat.

He's a nasty bastard who needs a good kicking.

Baz said...

Also, the organisations he's associated with as a council representative - schools (as a governor), community groups (as a rep) etc.

They want to watch his voting too. Should he be allowed, for instance, to vote on whether the local Women's Refuge receives funding. All relevant and all an indicator that he really is unable to do his job in the way he should.

Nice to see the update appearing on the crap councillors page right away - particularly as David Enderby really is a crap councillor!

I agree with all that.

An early addition to 'Idiot of the Week’ I think, or maybe 'Repulsive Psychopath of the Week'.

Oddly enough, the BNP website doesn't seem to have noticed this piece of news.

I'd nominate him as Idiot of the Week, but it's far too serious for that!

Kirklees Unity said...

Remember as well,he isn't the first BNP councillor to assault his wife.

Brian Turner in Burnley was also a convicted wife beater.

Smokescreeners said...

Neither was the wife-beater in Burnley told to leave the BNP. Frankly, Griffin thinks that by having scumbag criminals within the party who beat the shit out of defenceless wives and kids, they will turn a blind eye to his thieving, and the use of BNP donations to build a second home in Croatia.

The BNP family party?

Could it possibly be that having a councillor is more important than the welfare and safety of women and children?

I'll tell the scumbag exactly what I think of him.

Give me his prison number.

I hate women and children beaters. Such animals are needle dicked inadequates who should be cleansed from society via the rope.

Don't be silly, Griffin has only expelled one councillor, Luke Smith, and the only reason he did that was because he hated Steve Smith for winning in Burnley. Griffin hates anyone who gets the limelight. Don't you look at the dumbly named 'Voice of Freedom' owned by a party that denies freedom of speech? Griffins face has to be everywhere and even next to the pope! Griffin is a sad joke who'll be appearing in the Black Country next month. Can't wait...

So now the so-called revolutionaries of the left automatically accept the state's "evidence" against a decent man who fought for his country? Interesting.

"the state's evidence against a man who fought for his country"

I know that BNPers can see a state conspiracy in pretty well everything, but is it not just possible that this man (I use the term loosely) was convicted on the evidence of family, witnesses, bystanders, police who attended the incident rather than some "state" conspiracy?

There is no LEFT and RIGHT anymore. Are you calling a 14yr old girl and ALL the witnesses liars? Is the BNP so desperate for councillors they'll hang onto anyone?

Where are the BNP accounts? Or, how can the BNP compile accounts from FORGED regional petty cash books? I do hope that Walker and Hannam haven't forgotten that they wiped most regions books to zero and that those who complained were threatened with expulsion. Oh yes, they wiped thousands off in one fell swoop :-)

anon said.....now the so called lefties....no it is not a state conspiracy, evidence was given at court, the left had nothing to do with this.
and as for saying this man fought for his country, the only evidence we have of this man fighting is at a childrens party when he hit a woman, and threw a 14 year old girl across the room. Please dont mention him in the same breath as soldiers fighting in Iraq and Afganistan. They are real men and women.
