A few hours ago a report (posted by the idiotic Tommy Williams of Covert Undercover Nuisance Tactics, the pro-Griffin bully-boys of the blogging world) on the nazi Stormfront forum claimed that a bomb had gone off at the entrance to the Red, White and Blue site in the early hours of this morning. The blame was laid very firmly at the feet of 'reds', by which the writers mean anyone who dares to oppose the fascist BNP and the thugs and thieves that infest it.
A short while later, we received an email that told us that Nick Griffin had been overheard on the phone to Williams. Here's part of the message.
'...he tore into him, telling him what a stupid cunt he was and screaming about did he want to bankrupt the fucking party cos he's going the right way about it and to print a retraction and fucking hurry up for this gets spread about.'
Williams' bright idea was to spread it about that the anti-fascists opposing the Red, White and Blue were dangerous terrorists - any hint of bombs and the mind moves easily and obviously to terrorism. Just one problem - there was NO bomb or indeed, incident of any kind. Williams made the whole thing up in the hope that some anti-fascists would keep away from the event and that the police would be even less tolerant than they already are.
Being stupid, Williams forgot to wonder what the effect might be on those BNP-supporters who are attending or planning to attend (some with children) the RWB who, it can easily be assumed, would be reluctant to set foot in a place where bombs might be flying around.
Nick Griffin was obviously well aware of the possibilities and after the 'angry and hysterical' phone call, Williams changed his original post on Stormfront to read:
'It seems we may have given out some wrong information regarding an incident that happened in the early hours of this morning at the RWB. We can now confirm what was originally reported was nothing to do with the RWB. And the sound was actually a firework set off by locals (probably kids) and due to the time in the morning the sound travelled. This had NOTHING to do with the RWB in any shape or form and we can only apologise for any mis-information we got at the time...'
Griffin's worries about the financial state of the Red, White and Blue are well-justified. In fact it seemed unlikely that it could continue without incurring devastatingly massive losses for the party until a Glasgow BNP member came up with £5000 to subsidise it just a couple of days ago (more on this over the next day or two). A pity really because without this subsidy, the party might well have hit bankruptcy sooner rather than later - it has a good deal less than that left in its bank account.
The BNP is teetering on a financial tightrope and is very close to falling off. Another push or two, like the one just given by Tommy Williams, and that could be it.
Thanks Tommy, keep up the good work. :-)
