Factory rumoured to be BNP merchandising unit
The British National Party (BNP) is renting a factory on Deeside as a merchandising centre.
International anti-fascist magazine Searchlight, claim the Evans Business Centre unit is being used to distribute racist and hatred material. The BNP name doesn’t appear on the factory door but neighbouring businesses confirmed it was operating there.
Searchlight believes the unit is the first phase of the BNP’s “Building to Grow” fundraising effort and a centralisation of its operation. The BNP announced in January that Excalibur, its merchandising operation, had reopened for business in Deeside. A Searchlight statement said: “The BNP was keeping very tight-lipped about the location.”
The Chronicle confirmed the BNP was in Deeside last Friday. BNP member Arthur Kemp introduced himself when we visited Evans Business Centre. When asked if the unit was being used as a BNP merchandising centre he replied there were rumours being spread by communists. He declined to comment further and slammed the unit’s door shut.
Searchlight claims Deeside-based John Walker is the full-time national dispatch and logistics manager at the warehouse but is no longer the BNP’s treasurer.
An Evans spokeswoman says the BNP wasn’t mentioned when the lease was signed. She said: “We only discovered last Friday the unit was being used by them. Excalibur signed a two-month rolling licence. The fact we’re carrying out an investigation reflects our concern and we shall be talking to the people about what’s exactly happening there.”

What we need you to do is email or ring up the company to ask why they are letting space to a party full of criminals, liars, nazis, thugs and terrorists, and why they are content to allow this space to be used to disseminate material that is at worst racist and at the least deeply offensive to a vast majority of the population. The company details are below:

As ammunition for when you speak to the company, here's a small example of some of the more offensive items sold via Excalibur.
- Deeply offensive 'Golly' Pens and badges
- Books by pro-eugenics author Roger Pearson, promoting an all-white society
- Books that make the unfounded claim that immigrants are responsible for TB and HIV
- The truly appalling, racist, anti-semitic and white supremacist March of the Titans by Arthur Kemp, who currently works at Excalibur
- The fake Victoria Cross which was so recently the subject of much controversy in several newspapers, and many more fake medals
- Badges with 'Enoch Powell was right', 'Say no to asylum' and 'No immigrants, no bombs' - presumably forgetting the IRA's visits of a few years back, the three bombs set off by the BNP's very own David Copeland in Soho and Mark Bulman, a BNP activist who set fire to a mosque, to say nothing of the various members of the BNP (including Robert Cottage) who stockpiled bomb-making equipment but got caught before they made use of it, and Tony Lecomber, who blew himself up accidentally while on his way to bomb the offices of a rival political party. Lecomber worked for the BNP for a further ten years after this, finally getting the sack after attempting to recruit another ex-BNP member, gangland hitman Joe Owens, to assassinate a leading politician.
- T-shirts glorifying Enoch Powell, with slogans such as 'It's cool to be white' and 'BNP - It's a white thing'.
