You've bought the Timeshare Truth Truck - now let's have some more money

Nick Griffin's never-ending quest for money moves on to the next stage

Members of the BNP will have received yet another begging letter from that financial wizard Nick Griffin, the party leader. The last time we reported on these rubbishy begging letters that are sent out wholesale, it was so the party could buy what it laughingly called 'the Truth Truck', a blatant con-trick as the truck was actually obtained from the UK LifeLeague, an anti-abortion outfit run by one of Griffin's old chums and the author of those bloody awful begging letters, James Dowson.

This particular letter is headed Great News', that news presumably being that the membership has now got to fork out even more money to get the truck out on the road or, as Griffin prefers to put it, 'build up a fighting fund'. Obviously assuming that the combined BNP membership has the IQ of a whelk, he goes on to explain that 'there will be ongoing costs with this fantastic initiative' and that 'it still requires money to run the truck'. How bizarre (and unlikely) that this wasn't factored into the original appeal.

Three sections leap out from this ghastly letter as of particular interest.

'To keep costs to a minimum, I have organised a friend to do most of the driving this summer, but will need modest support to train other drivers in several regions. And of course - for on the road incidentals, food & subsistence, parking, tolls and fuel etc.'

Costs have already been kept to a minimum by conning the supporters of the BNP into believing they were buying a brand-new truck when what they were actually getting was a time-share with the UK LifeLeague mob. There has been NO indication of how much money was raised by the campaign for the truck, nor have the members been at any point told how much was spent on it or the precise details of its origin.

A 'friend' will drive it? What friend? Will this friend be paid? What is the nature of this 'modest support? Hotel bills, meals, Ronald McDonald-style uniform? And this friend will 'train other drivers in several regions'. At what cost to those regions? Nothing Nick Griffin did for the BNP membership ever came free - far from it, in fact. Oh yes, he's zoomed around the country making speeches while surrounded by his entourage of butch men in dark glasses like he's some kind of third-rate Generalissimo but Nick Griffin has done extremely well out of the BNP and, like every other Generalissimo out there, he has planned his retirement carefully and does not expect to retire into penury.

'When you give to this amazing project, it will be like you are sitting in the lorry cab with me as I travel the length and breadth of this country. You will be shoulder to shoulder with me as we spread our message of hope with the "Truth Truck"'

Perish the thought. He should have asked for donations to enable people NOT to think of sitting 'shoulder to shoulder' with him. He'd have made a lot more money.

One thing I will say about Nick Griffin is that he has chutzpa. On the donations page of the letter, we see the usual layout that asks the reader to tick a box that indicates their chosen donation. Most organisations who are seeking funds for special projects (usually involving the victims of natural disaster, not some petty crap like buying a 'truth' truck) put the highest amount on the left in the hope that the reader will tick that box. Understandable, because this box is usually for some large amount like £50, though not in Griffin's world. No, his appeal goes way beyond such triviality - the first box is for £2500. If you're too mean to donate that, the next one is for a miserly £1000.

I'll make a prediction here. No matter how much is raised from this appeal, the regions will STILL be charged a ridiculous amount to have a driver 'trained' in driving this truck. Why? Because it is simply another part of the scam, the BNP enterprise that now exists solely to enrich Griffin and the other wasters at the top of the party.

Remember Boudica the amazing invisible bus? How much money was raised by the membership for that? Nobody knows, except Griffin and co. And where is the bus? Nobody knows that either. The Truth Truck, being shared with UK LifeLeague, will no doubt appear and will cost the membership dearly. It already has - but this is just the beginning of the scam. And I'll bet there are many more to come.

A slight Freudian slip I think - 'Millions will be exposed to our message'

Exposed to a message of hate!

"there will be ongoing costs with this fantastic initiative"

How is it a fantastic initiative? Loads of organisations have similar vehicles. Hope not hate have a bus, UAF have something similar to that so-called truth truck, the major political parties have had these things for years as have numerous companies. This is no initiative, it's just another excuse for picking the memberships pocket AGAIN.

I wonder how many other organisations have been conned using Dowsons truck?

All this is true and as someone who was in the BNP until a year or so ago when I realised it was Gri££ins giant con trick and who has friends who are still in the party I can tell you that there are a lot of members asking the same questions.

Very nicely put. Generalissimo Griffin. Sounds great.

I thought the Red White and Blue was supposed to be alcohol-free? This is from the BNP news feed.

"6) Smoking bar - we’ve got the unhealthy snacks, you bring the drink and tobacco

Probably the most politically incorrect bar in the country! Two sides off the
specially designated marquee mean that you can legally smoke yourself to death
if you want. We’ll help you with pork scratchings, crisps, Mars Bars and other
thoroughly unhealthy snacks. Plus sea-food sold (we hope) by nubile young
serving lasses. Background music and atmospheric lighting. Even better, because
you’ve got to bring your own booze it’ll be far cheaper than a normal Friday or
Saturday night out. What more could you ask for?"

Absolutely right.

Donations made payable to the BNP or British Heritage? Where are their accounts? Can we check them? Do they appear in the BNP's accounts? Who runs British Heritage? Please tell me its not Mark Collett.

More money. More money. Always more fucking money.

BNP Odin Cult said...

I wander if the people involved in the LifeLeague are Catholics. If so, are they aware of the BNP's hatred of Catholics?

Is Odin some sort of figurehead against abortion?

When was the Last time the BNP declared income from British Heritage in their accounts?

Sudden thought, reverting back to the bad old days when I worked in insurance.

Now cyclops wants money for alledegely, the compuslary insurance on this vehicle.

Are the Underwriters aware of the time shared ownership, and are they content with the financial ownership.

At an educated guess the underwriters will not have been told the truth, and this invalidates any policy through "Non Disclosure".

Could I suggest that should any Anti-Fa, (or any anti Cyclops Nutzies) wish to cause the 'erberts max agro - They write to thier Local VOSA office pointing out where and when the vehicle was sited and request VOSA to ensure that it has a valid RTA Insurance certificate for 1/. Any Driver, and 2/. be used for political promotion on the public roads.

Ahould any antifa have details as to insurer and regisration number please contact me through Unity Forum and we will see what can be done to keeo them off he road legally. After all there is nothing wrong with enforcing the law, is there ?

Now I understand, when the Odinist bearded "Medway mental case" who wanders around Dartford in a blue hospital gown bangs on about the legacy of Abba, he really means the pirated copies of the famous Swedish pop band of said name, which may or may not be his own personal property.

Not everyone is conned by Griffin.
Someday he'll be gone and soon I hope.
