Grimy BNP-link hotel 'a hazard to humans'

New Kimberley Hotel 'a hazard to humans'
The Blackpool hotel used by the far right British National Party for its annual conferences was branded a hazard to humans by health chiefs.

Officers investigated after guests complained about diarrhoea and vomiting while staying at The New Kimberley Hotel, Blackpool. They were also told of guests being given uncooked food and meat which smelt bad. Officials found the kitchen of the 50-bedroom hotel on South Promenade was filthy and discovered food which was out-of-date and in danger of cross-contamination from bacteria.

Peter Metcalf, 45, of Wyredale Road, St Annes, the hotel's former-leaseholder, admitted nine offences of breaching food hygiene safety rules and was found guilty of 11 similar offences after a trial. He was fined £1,000 with £500 costs and ordered to pay the £15 victims' surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

Victoria Cartmell, prosecuting for Blackpool Council, said there were complaints in 2006 about the hotel.

Health officers first visited the hotel in July 2006 and Metcalf was given numerous chances to clean the kitchen. Officers again visited on August 14 last year and found the kitchen was filthy. Ceilings, walls, sockets, surfaces, pipes, floors, a cooker, fryer and freezer were greasy and dirty and food debris was scattered around. Black mould was on chopping boards, freezer seals and an ice-making machine. A wash basin was dirty and there were no paper towels.

Ms Cartmell said: "Double cream in the fridge was past its use-by date. Containers of ice-cream were stored next to boxes of raw bacon which could have caused cross-contamination of bacteria."

Mitch Sarangi, defending, said at the time Metcalf's mother-in-law had been diagnosed with a terminal illness. He and his wife travelled to and from Scotland to visit her before she was transferred to a hospice and died. Metcalf had now been declared bankrupt and he no longer held the hotel's lease.

The hotel hit the headlines in November 2006 and 2007 when it twice held the BNP's annual conference.

Tim Coglan, head of trading standards at Blackpool Council, said: "The conditions were disgusting and totally unacceptable. We know the majority of premises in the town are well run but we will continue to crackdown on those that aren't. Blackpool has the most robust enforcement regime in the country."

The hotel is now under new management.

Hazard to humans but not presumably to cockroaches, rats and certain bacteria.

And Nick Griffin was happy for his members to be incarcarated in this shithole for the annual conference. How much does that show his contempt for his minions.

Should have just let them carry on meeting there. The party could have all died of food poisoning.

This is on NWN too and theres an interesting comment there about lager

""Ha Ha. Did Gri££in get a rake off? It sounds like one of his operations.

Yes, Griffin mage a handsome amount. I shouldn't be shocked, but it's still disgusting. It wreaks of the cheap shot when Griffin sanded off the dates from out of date lager and sold it to supposed comrades. Like someone else says on here, people have no excuse anymore, we now know what Griffin is. He's just making money out of low achievers."

Acceptable by Griffin for his moronic party though.

Oh dear. Collett and Hannam will just have to find somewhere else to take their underage girls now, the fucking perverts.

This won't make Roy Goodwin, Blackpool's organiser, any too popular. It was on his recommendation that the BNP went to the Kimberley in the first place. Mind you, he lives in some shithole caravan.

Goodwins a dirty cunt anyway. He'd think the NK was a palace.

They've been told to keep their habits a more discreet. Griffin doesn't care what they did and nor does anyone else in the party cos there all a bunch of lowlifes!

It looks like Mark Collett, the BNP’s answer to Garry Glitter, is going to have to find himself a new hunting ground this year.

Gri££in would be insane to hold his Gri££in-Arse-Worship weekend there now.

Mind you, I said the same thing regards their RWB, but he still did it and fucked himself up! How much money did you make this year Gri££in? lol!

That putrid little squirt's very own brand of arrogance is what is going to finish him off, let’s all lend him a hand.

What was it Griffin said about treating British people with respect?

I think he meant, treating the British people to shit.

Yes, Peedo Boy will have to find another shit tip to groom little kids into his bed for a threesome with Hannam.

"Cockroaches, rats and certain bacteria. Sounds like the entire BNP leadership summed up to a tee!"

LOL
