BNP attempt to meet in Heckmondwike

It has been brought to our attention that the BNP in Kirklees intend to hold a meeting in the Heckmondwike area on Wednesday 12th November.

The meeting which is due to start at 7.30pm is to be held at The Royal Hotel public house which is located on High Street Heckmondwike WF16 0AL. The guest speaker for the night is Richard Edmonds the former deputy leader of the party under the John Tyndall regime.

Former teacher Edmonds has a string of criminal convictions:

In 1988, The Sunday Times revealed that Holocaust News, a publication that claimed The Holocaust was an "evil hoax", was being published by Edmonds, on behalf of a BNP front organisation, the Centre for Historical Review, and distributed by members. The theme was returned to on 8th April 1991 edition of Panorama where Edmonds described the publication as 'a wonderful statement of the truth'

Edmonds also spent time in custody over a racial attack in 1993 and had previously been convicted for smashing a statue of Nelson Mandela on London's South Bank. Further controversy came in 1993 when he told The Guardian that 'we [the BNP] are 100% racist'.

Surprisingly to some, Edmonds was co-opted by Nick Griffin onto the BNP's Advisory Council in September 2008, thereby returning him to the top tier of the party and ending his period of apparent dissidence.

As The Royal is a Free House we are asking people to ring the pub and POLITELY lodge their complaint with the management.

The Royal Hotel's telephone number is 01924 403265.

A nice post to show to the police and the landlord of the pub where this event is due to be held. She probably wont care but if there's problems at the meeting, it'll be her own fault for encouraging these nazi vermin through her doors.

Criminal record from 1988? from 1993? that is 20 years and 15 years ago.

Gerry Gable, was in the communist party in his early years, says a lot about the UAF

'Gerry Gable, was in the communist party in his early years, says a lot about the UAF'

Being a member of the Communist Party is not a criminal offence - and I'm not sure what anything Gerry Gable has done in the past has to do with UAF. Do try to concentrate.

"Gerry Gable, was in the communist party in his early years, says a lot about the UAF"

That really doesn't make any sense at all.

Nazi he may be, but no one can deign that Edmonds is ten times the politician and ten times as respected within their circle than Griffin could ever be. (Bugging, robbery, corruption and money laundering are still frowned upon in the BNP apparently Nick)

That makes Edmonds far more dangerous to those that oppose fascism. Watch him carefully.

I spoke to the land lady. She said I was being "racist" towards the BNP, also that they were just another political party and she knows some of them personally. I kept replying that they are a Nazi political party but I eventually had to terminate the conversation which would have gone on forever. Let's hear how other people got on with ringing. Should Kirklees Unity try to meet her to discuss it further? I did suggest she talk to local people who are concerned.

NEWSFLASH

The BNP meeting at The Royal Hotel in Heckmondwike has been cancelled !

This can only be down to the many antifascists who telephoned the pub to voice their protest at the presence of the BNP and Richard Edmonds.

Kirklees Unity says a massive thank you to everyone who played their part

Paul said...

To Kirklees Unity: Thanks for telling us. We need to know the outcome of our efforts. See you in Blackpool?

See you at Blackpool Girl said...

Oh yes, you'll see me in Blackpool. :-)
