Of dead ferrets and dodgy deals - the BNP lectures Labour about money

The latest ramblings on Simon Darby's blog seem largely to focus on the inability of the BNP membership to recognise a dead ferret when they see one. Quite how this has anything to do with his role as deputy-leader of the BNP I have no idea but perhaps he should reflect on the fact that while he's extremely lucky to live in a bloody nice house out in the wilds of Wales from which he can make patronising noises about urban deprivation, most of us (and the vast majority of the BNP membership) live in a distinctly urban environment and would find it hard to spot the difference between a ferret and Mark Collett. But then, who wouldn't?

The bulk of Darby's post seems strangely allied to a post we made here a week or so ago, concerning the current dire financial state of the BNP though in Darby's case he's having a go at what he wittily (?) calls 'ZaNuLabour'. One assumes this is a feeble attempt to deflect criticism away from the BNP for its continuing (and apparently endless) catalogue of financial disasters.

Here's a 'little snippet of gossip' regarding labour, as related by Darby.

'Apparently, workers at Labour head office are complaining bitterly that they are are having to wait longer and longer to get paid. Being £24 million in the red they have just about managed to scrape up enough pennies to pay their staff for last month, but there is real concern amongst the Party faithful that sooner rather than later the dosh isn't going to arrive.'

Curiously, we've heard much the same rumour about Darby's little gang. Obviously the numbers are smaller because the BNP has about three percent of the Labour Party's membership. Some of the complaints we've heard about the BNP are that debts are not being paid when they should be, money is continually being taken from branch funds to prop up the failing central bureaucracy and, yes, that workers are not being paid when they should be. The party faithful are indeed concerned that the BNP is heading towards financial collapse and the ones that correspond with us state very clearly that they expect that collapse to come sooner rather than later.

Darby continues;

'Not to worry though because Golden Gordon has a cunning plan.'

I'm starting to wonder if Simon Darby actually is one of our regular correspondents because almost that exact phrase appears in an email to us from a few days back.

'Not to worry though because Nick Griffin has a cunning plan.'

And Griffin's cunning plan turns out to be much the same one that Darby attributes to the Labour Party.

'Secret talks, not so secret actually, have been taking place with a certain well known pro-Labour multi-millionaire about throwing a lifeline to the technically insolvent political organisation...'

We too have heard the phrase 'secret talks', though in this case they refer to two millionaire supporters of the BNP. Both, we have heard, have been approached to bail out the party 'temporarily', which in this case we are told means two years at the outside. One of them, a long-time Griffin loyalist, is apparently reluctant to pump any more money into what he sees as a business that's pretty much on the rocks. While he seems okay providing smallish amounts to help out in times of need, he seems to be baulking at a larger and longer-term commitment. The other is an unknown quantity at the moment though we'll dig for more information.

In the meantime, the BNP's desperation for cash is reaching breaking point. Remember Albion Life, the party's extremely short-lived insurance company? Brightahomes, the double-glazing registry? Horse Matters (for all our equine needs)? The Skip-Hire Registry? Now the BNP has set up Avocado Marine Finance (registered to December rebel Steve Blake) - astonishingly closely linked to Avocado Mortgages but this time aimed at people who fancy buying themselves a boat.

The party will continue with these insane schemes, usually through a third-party (in the case of Avocado, a broker) until it either implodes into its own financial black hole or it finds some gullible idiot to stave off disaster. At the moment, the BNP membership is supporting it but each appeal produces substantially less money and if the amount of angry emails to us from disgruntled members is indicative of the current mood in the party generally, disaster looms.

Darby might like taking the odd dig at the Labour Party for its own dreadful financial problems but size for size, the Labour Party has nothing on the BNP.

I'm surprised the BNP doesn't finance it's own sinking ship of a party using Avocado Marine Finance.

That wouldnt surprise many people in the party.Most think he's MI5 anyway,that's why they call him 5IMon Darby.

They have made the same mistake on the avocado finance website of using logos from High Street banks and Building Societies to give it an air of respectability and legitimacy.
I think I might spend the next few hours on the phone to the various companies asking if they are aware their registered logos are being used by a BNP front company and if they are happy with the situation.

I'm not sure about the rest of it but that's true and it's been happening for a while now. The branches are pretty pissed off. Theyt raise the money and it goes straight into the pockets of the bosses.

Steve Blake was expelled from the BNP in December so how is his Avocado finance business a BNP front?

Dave said...

There's an interesting comment on Colin Auty's blog

"£30,000 legal costs (as yet unpaid) equates to the £30,000 Gri££in wants to raise with his truth truck - something smells fishy!"

It does.

Er....something in your article doesnt make sense. If Blake is a December rebel what is he doing giving money to the BNP? Either he isnt a rebel and is still on board (no pun!) and happy to give money to Griffin to bail him out or he is a rebel and your wrong about Blake's company giving money to the BNP.

Do try to keep up. Blake was indeed booted in December but he was looking after the BNP's websites before that. The site was registered in May (as can be seen from the Whois report below). There's more information here:

Fact - the BNP is technically insolvent. It's debts exceed it's bank balance. This is straight from the ex-treasurers mouth who is ready to tell all. He is depressed about getting shouldered out of the way and I heard this at the weekend as a fact from a pal who is a mate of Walker's.

I'm trying to find out if it's his business or the BNP's, either way the companies involved wont want to be linked

"Do try to keep up. Blake was indeed booted in December but he was looking after the BNP's websites before that. "

So is he or is he not giving money to the BNP NOW? That is the question. You implied he is still giving money from his web based companies but if he was booted out in December why would he do so? Your article is confusing but it is important to highlight the BNP fiannces are in a bad way. Plenty of jobs in Morrisons in Welshpool for the Griffin clan when the BNP wagon finally crahses.

I don't recall implying that Blake is giving anything at all to the BNP nor did I say at any point that Avocado is Blake's company, simply that while he was working for the BNP he registered the domain name along with a whole bunch of others. There's no evidence to suggest that a) any of these 'companies' belong to him or b) that they are in fact legitimate companies. None of these companies are listed with Companies House.

Read the two earlier articles that I've listed - it might help to make sense of all this.

If he can sober up tell him to send the information to Lancaster Unity. They'll make good use of it!

The EIE blog seems to have come back to life. Here's the newest post

"Darby says "F*$K Off" to constitution request!

The following quote comes from a man who recently resigned as new BNP Scotland webmaster. For those who doubt the bankrupt morals of the current BNP leadership this snippet should be rather illuminating.

The British National Party
What have I learned about the BNP in almost a year of being a paid member and as a BNP Scotland official, that a lot of the rumours are true and the party is corrupt, and is not democratic in any shape or form. Infact one might go as far to say that its not necessarily British but more of lets follow Griffin and blow smoke up his arse!

The party is full of a lot of lemmings that think Nick Griffin/ Mark Collett are some sort of 'Gods' in the making. I suppose when you surround yourself with lemmings it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that you are the greatest person who walked the earth.

I had a person that wanted some answers with regard to the parties constitution. I didn't have a copy so I thought I would contact other officials for advice or to obtain a copy. The first person I contacted was Mark Collett who said he has never seen a copy and wouldn't know where to get one from. In the end he suggested that I contacted Nick Griffin as at the end of the day he was the one who wrote it.

Before I went that far up the official line I thought I would contact the deputy party leader, Simon Darby. His words on the subject were why do you want it? Just tell him to "F*$k Off!" He is only a 'red' trying to wind you up!"

I could add more to this but I will only be called a 'Red' or a 'Traitor'. Would I recommend joining the BNP? As it stands with the current lineup it would be a resounding NO! If the party changes its current team leadership and how its run then Yes! Only time will tell if the party changes for the better as currently it is stuck in the dark ages."

I see on Colin Auty's blog that Kenny Smith has received one of John Walker's drunken phone calls. It may be a good idea to start phoning John at night when he's more than likely to be drunk to see what he lets slip???

Your comments about Simon darby seem to have struck a chord on NWN

"Darby works for the state, I think all but the stupid now realise that. Look at his blog, he's not even remotely political. And, at every opportunity he buggers up the regions where he has any dealings."

Yeah, he kind of rubs it in does'nt he.

Collett's printing press houseboy said...

Walker has been the biggest leak of BNP top table "secrets" in recent years. He likes his drink too much and then spends the rest of the night telling anyone in ear reach how important he is and how bad things are and how he is under enormous pressure from Griffin, from the Electoral Commission, from local fundholders.....yawn, yawn. No need for Searchlight/UAF to have moles in the BNP when someone like Walker exists. He still has plenty more to tell. Just buy him a half a bottle of whisky and hit the record button..........
