Croydon BNP election candidate investigated over immigrants rant

The political career of Croydon Central's BNP candidate is in jeopardy as he is being investigated by his own party after ranting about "violent immigrants" in New Addington.

Clifford Le May [pictured centre, left] is in trouble for his response to a Tory questionnaire encouraging residents to raise any concerns with London mayor Boris Johnson. His reply was to write: "Stop ruining our community by stuffing New Addington with violent immigrants who have no right to live among decent civilised white people."

In the questionnaire he also refers to his Tory rival for the Croydon Central seat, Gavin Barwell, as a "traitor to his race and nation". Despite admitting the words were written in "anger", Mr Le May has refused to retract anything and is now hoping he will not be deselected as a result.

"I'm not a racist – I'm a British patriot," he insisted. "I hope what I wrote won't affect my candidacy."

Mr Le May, a 50-year-old postal worker and dad-of-three, explained the basis for his strong views. He claims his 15-year-old daughter, Eve, was "pepper sprayed and attacked" by a West Indian immigrant in 2007 and that his mum Marie was punched in the face by two black men at Bayswater station 20 years ago. He also says his gran was mugged by a gang of young black men who left her with a broken hip. She died during surgery to have it replaced.

Speaking at his home in Redstart Close, he claimed: "There's a problem in this country with aggression coming from young black men. I can recount hundreds of incidents – 99 per cent of all violent crime will be at the hands of black youths. Everywhere I go I see violent young black men and women. I read the New Scientist and they say there's evidence that people in gangs are predisposed to violence. They didn't bring race into the equation, but you can read between the lines."

Referring back to his comments on the survey, he denied trying to be inflammatory.

"I was so annoyed and angry to get this survey from a failed party who are not interested in what I've got to say," he said. "The Tories and Labour have ruined our economy and our prospects. My two eldest daughters Natalie (a 20-year-old nightclub waitress) and Jodie (an 18-year-old shop assistant] are working part-time jobs because of this terrible situation. I stand by what I wrote. But when I address the electorate when a general election date's set I'll probably use different words."

Mr Barwell, says he was appalled when he read the questionnaire response.

"Mr Le May's comments show the BNP remains a party that judges people not by their actions but by the colour of their skin," he said. "Hundreds of thousands of British servicemen gave their lives to defeat these views in the Second World War – there's nothing patriotic about them. People who are thinking of voting BNP should be aware what kind of people they really are."

Simon Darby, a BNP press spokesman, says the result of the inquiry will be reported in due course to Mr Le May. He added: "While I agree with the sentiments, he could have put it a bit more politely – he should have couched his language more. But what he says is not too far from what's actually happening."

"he is being investigated by his own party"

That's not going to be worth much if the deputy leader then says

"I agree with the sentiments"

Why don't they just admit they're racist and be done with it.

"decent civilised white people"
"traitor to his race and nation"

He's given the game away there. He's just nazi scum.

I bet he will. Like, "I am not a racist" or "black people would be welcome to stay under a BNP government".

This guy is a complete moron.

"99 per cent of all violent crime will be at the hands of black youths."

Evidence? If that was the case, every paper in the country would carry it as front page news.

"I read the New Scientist and they say there's evidence that people in gangs are predisposed to violence."

I don't think anyone needs the New Scientist to relate gang membership to violence.

"They didn't bring race into the equation"

No, they didn't. So why are you? Perhaps you don't remember the Krays or the Richardsons? All white, all violence. Look at Joe Owens (former BNP) and his violent mates. All white. Dominic Noonan's mob. All white. There are loads of examples of all-white gangs which terrorise whole areas/estates from Glasgow to Bristol.

Le May is an ass.

These examples need highlighting at all levels. Not everyone reads papers and some still read the Daily Heil which is just BNP Lite.

I would urge people to phone or email local radio phon-ins to inform listeners whenever there is a pro-BNP supporter spouting hate and '99%' stats.

Interesting to see Darby's response. He's only mad as he hasn't used the Manual language and tactics.

The old national front used to have no hang-ups about describing themselves as racist. Ex-leader Webster was quoted as saying, "We are 100% racist and proud of it". Edmonds of the BNP said something similar in the late 80's.

I have always found it strange how the present BNP are so coy about using this term to describe themselves. Political Correctness gone mad, if you ask me!

The guy on the left Adam Walker, who looks like a university lecturer, is the BNP leader in Richmond, Surrey. He is married to a Japanese woman and has a mixed race child by her.

Needless to say, he keeps this quiet and many of those who do know inside the BNP detest him for it.
