- Why does BNP webmaster Simon Bennett run the BNP, NLP and Third Way's websites?
- Why are the Accentuate and Solidarity websites served up by BNP insider Lambertus Nieuwhof?
- Why did Nick Griffin ask Graham Williamson - not a BNP member - to chair the BNP's last conference?
- Why did Harrington's NLP stand against the BNP in South Hornchurch?
One of Harrington's first tasks on grabbing the union was to hand a job to his Third Way colleague Graham Williamson, who despite having no experience (or indeed, talent) in public relations, decided to start running a web-based (meaning it doesn't exist anywhere except on the internet) public relations company, the utterly pointless Accentuate. Harrington, the leader of an utterly pointless union, aptly took Williamson on to run the PR for Solidarity. And has Solidarity been a PR success? Well, hardly, despite Williamson's third-rate PR company putting its best efforts into it.
Williamson, former treasurer of the National Front and old chum of both Griffin and Harrington, has popped up in an odd context recently over on the North West Nationalist blog, where it was suggested that he was one of the people who was asked to chair last year's BNP conference in Blackpool. Assuming that this is indeed the case, why would he be asked to chair the conference of a party to which he doesn't even belong?
In fact, the connections between the BNP and Harrington's version of Solidarity, his National Liberal Party and Third Way, and Accentuate are manifest mostly, like Accentuate itself, through the internet.
- The National Liberal Party website is run by Simon Bennett, the BNP's very own webmaster, as is the Third Way website.
- The Solidarity website is served up by Lambertus Nieuwhof's company Noisy Dinosaur, as is Accentuate.
Back to the childish Simon Bennett (who has set up numerous sites imitating and attempting, though failing, to undermine Lancaster Unity) and we have a big question to ask. Why would the BNP's webmaster run a site for a rival party too? In fact, we asked this question of one of the ex-BNP members who are regularly in touch with us, who responded by stating that 'the NLP isn't really a rival to the BNP'. If that's the case, why did it support Michael Burton (an Independent) in the recent South Hornchurch by-election when there was a BNP candidate (Anthony Steff) who it could have supported? Clearly, the NLP IS a political rival to the BNP. Would the Labour Party trust its webmaster with running the Conservative Party's website too?
I'm aware that this article is more questions than answers but they all need to be asked in order to make sense of what is going on in the peculiar mind of Nick Griffin, who oversees all this nonsense. He has worked closely with Harrington for years and particularly closely during the Solidarity fiasco. Even Williamson, who is an idiot by anyone's standards, gets an important role in this comedy. We heard recently that he was asked by Griffin to watch over Richard Barnbrook at the London Assembly, to make sure he stays out of trouble. So why choose someone who isn't even a party member to do that next to impossible job (though if he keeps Barnbrook away from the booze, bananas and rugby players he should be okay)? Is he paid for it and if so, how much is he paid? Isn't there anybody in the BNP capable of doing the job? The questions are endless and they're not only coming from our side - people in the BNP itself are asking the same questions.
