A new technological breakthrough enables the viewer of an email or document to see it complete with all the changes that were made during its production. This breakthrough reveals far more about the creator of these documents than was ever intended.

Here we go again....

7 Comment (s)
Last week we ran a successful campaign to stop a right wing Islamophobic football hooligan march through the streets of Luton. Over 14,000 letters were sent to the Home Secretary and Chief Constable of Bedfordshire police within 24 hours. It proved decisive and the march was subsequently banned.

Now we need your help once again. On Saturday 5 September the right wing football hooligan group, the English Defence League, plans to use the England v Slovenia match as an excuse to whip up hatred and trouble in central Birmingham. The last time they demonstrated there were 19 arrests as the city centre came to a standstill after running battles broke out. With the England game drawing thousands to city centre pubs the potential for further trouble is severe.

Unfortunately the local council seem unwilling to act. That’s why we have set up a tool so our supporters can contact the council directly and urge them to reconsider. So far we have only sent out 5,000 to people on our email list who live in and around Birmingham but within 24 hours over 800 emails have already been sent in to the council.

With your help we can push this to 1,000.

We will be writing to every Birmingham councillor early next week to encourage them to take a stand against hatred. We want to do that with the backing of a huge number of local people. So please do sign up and send a message loud and clear to the council that the football hooligans are not welcome.

Merseyside BNP member, Peter Tierney, is appearing in court again on September 3rd. He faces charges of assault, following an attack on an anti-fascist protester in April.

Let’s show the BNP that we won’t tolerate their racism and violence in Liverpool or anywhere else. Demonstrate against the racists on September 3rd.


Salma Yaqoob: Why the EDL must be banned from Birmingham

10 Comment (s)
The English Defence League claimed they only came to protest against Islamic extremism but they actually came to spread hatred and division. One of their ringleaders, Paul Ray, made his intentions very clear when he stated, on TalkSport Radio, ‘his opposition to all Muslims practising their faith in Britain’.

Everyone has a right to their opinions but no one has the right to incite hatred on the basis of faith or race.

I am concerned there is an equivalence being made between these people, who came to provoke trouble, and people who stand against fasicsm and racism. There is no equivalence and it is wrong that people have been allowed to come into the city centre with this intent for trouble.

The fascists wants to see social disorder, especially scenes of violence between Muslim youth and white people, because then they can hold it up as ‘evidence’ of the ‘failure’ of multiculturalism.

Of course, our message is ‘do not be provoked’. We don’t want to see any scenes of violence in our Birmingham city centre; but the reality is they know some of these tactics have worked as in the past in Burnley, Oldham and Stoke where they instigated race riots and since that polarisation, they have benefited in their votes.

I believe the English Defence League’s so-called ‘protests’ are simply a repeat of this formula which they want to bring to Birmingham and other cities across the country.

I call on politicians from all parties, civic leaders and faith representatives to condemn the racist intent behind these so-called demonstrations and also call for the banning of any future such protests in our city.

Luton has also seen protests by the EDL and Casuals United, which have resulted in violence, and the police there have actually responded to a public outcry about this by calling for a ban.

Chief Superintendent Andy Frost, Divisional Commander for Luton police, said:
“The risk the proposed marches pose to public safety has left us with no alternative but to apply for a banning order.”

Alan Johnson, the Home Office Minister, granted this banning order in Luton, because he received over 14,000 letters directly to himself and the Chief Constable there, saying that they wanted a ban.

I urge people in Birmingham to write to Alan Johnson, as well as to the Chief Constable here to urge for a similar ban.

I love being a Brummie, I’m proud that Birmingham is a multicultural and diverse city. Let’s not be divided by the racists.

Salma Yaqoob

To request a ban, please write to:

Alan Johnson MP (Home Secretary):

Chief Constable Chris Simms (West Midlands Police):

For reasons of transparency, we want to keep track of how many letters are sent. Please ‘CC’ Salma Yaqoob at:

Snakes and Arrows

25 Comment (s)
Never willing to admit to incompetence but always willing to show bad faith to its most loyal supporters, over the RWB weekend the BNP fouled up yet another change of server and was hit - entirely coincidentally you understand - with another DDoS attack.

Well, that's what webmaster Simon Bennett told members anxious for their daily fix of all the news that's fit to bin - and since the trick had already been worked earlier in the summer, when Nick Griffin claimed the BNP website had been hit by the biggest DDoS attack "in recorded history", there was little harm in repeating the exercise.

Of course, those who looked for evidence of this latest attack came up as empty-handed as they had when seeking after evidence of the first. The only real difference this time was that though the BNP blamed everybody to the left of Attila the Hun for its supposed plight, there were no wild statements to the effect that the police, MI5, Interpol, the FBI and Gandalf the Grey were beating a path to the offices of Searchlight purposed on hauling off Gerry Gable for a long stretch on bread and water (if he was lucky).

Eventually the BNP website resurfaced in all its turgid, screamingly slow glory, and all was well with the world.

Hmm. Not quite.

"Where's our forum gone?" demanded nonplussed members of the small band who regularly used the BNP's private forum - for gone it was, without a word of warning, even to its own moderators.

Bennett came up with a number of excuses, first claiming that the BNP forum had been "lost in transit", then that it was "full of Reds", and finally admitting that it had been closed on the orders of the leadership because "the forums were counter-productive and offered no real benefit to the party on the whole" and were "a hot-bed for gossip and distraction".

Translated, that means: "Members were voicing their opinions, and we don't do that sort of thing in the BNP."

At its best, the BNP forum had around 250 registered users, of which 30-40 were regular posters. Such a low number of users from a party claiming 10,000 members might be explained by the frequency with which posters had their accounts deleted for transgressing Rule No. 1 ("Thou Shalt Speak No Ill Of Griffin, Not Even A Little Bit") and other mysterious rules the administrators conjured up on the fly. Even moderators, their task made more difficult than usual for having to observe lists of proscribed and non-proscribed subjects, could find a boot from on high connecting with their cyber backsides for reasons rarely explained.

And so the dispossessed, muttering darkly about "egos" and "dictatorships", move on to posting pastures new, but carry with them their unfailing loyalty to the very man who caused their discomfiture.

The closure of the BNP forum has led to a migration to the hitherto moribund Green Arrow forum - but if anybody thinks voicing an opinion there is a good idea, the spousally-challenged drink-loving Paul Morris has news for them, making it clear that nothing less than wholehearted support for Griffin and the Griffinite BNP is expected.

Now the pompous Morris is as much of a standing joke to his own fascist brethren as he is to the anti-fascist community. The online Colonel Blimpish persona and the over-frequent use of military metaphors are rather belied by his real-world persona as a vicious hater prone to subject his neighbours to drunken rants, and who urinated against his caravan while screaming and shouting at the now estranged wife who had locked him out of his own house.

Nobody reading this website needs to be reacquainted with the fact of Morris's abject cowardice concerning his own identity and his fulsome support for Redwatch, nor his self-pitying whining ("I could be killed") when anti-fascists gave him a taste of his own medicine and outed him. So we shan't mention it.

Morris has long entertained a high opinion of his own abilities, his importance and his influence, even going so far this week to modestly pat himself on the back for the vital part he claims he played in the election of Griffin, Brons and Barnbrook - a claim that may not sit well in the minds of the BNP's foot soldiers, who knocked doors and delivered the party's literature while Morris tapped away on his keyboard.

So pompous has Morris become, so inflated is his idea of his own worth, that the self-proclaimed "maverick" (!) refuses to take direction from the Leader he so fawningly adores and has managed to work himself into a tizz over an instruction that he fall into line with other BNP bloggers and remove the BNP logo and masturbatory photographs of Nick Griffin from his site.

It's all a storm in a cheap can of Tesco lager really, but in the sozzled mind of Morris assumes the importance of a Rorke's Drift, for conforming would be "... like a warship striking its colours or a regiment throwing down their colours and running. I will not run again - no matter what the price."

There speaks a true (internet) warrior.

Despite the ministrations of Welsh BNP organiser Brian Mahoney (purveyor of lies in the matter of Muslim-owned Cardiff post offices), Morris would not back down and resigned his membership, thus retaining his freedom of action to be a complete idiot while not (so he believes) damaging the hard-soiled reputation of the BNP.

Helpfully, for anti-fascists, Morris has decided to move away from the Google-owned Blogger and to set up his own bespoke website. I say "helpfully" since Morris's new address places him firmly within the remit of British hate and libel laws and makes him far more easily traceable by the authorities, who seem daunted by the legal technicalities presented by racists using American Blogger accounts.

There is now, then, a local audit trail, which begins at the registrant's address for the new Green Arrow site, being 50 Ammanford Road, Tycroes, Ammanford, Carmarthenshire, SA18 3QJ - which is also the address for the Patriot Products tat site ("for hygenic reasons we regret we are unable to refund underwear and hosiery products").

In his hubris Morris may well have made a rod for his own back, and it's up to us to ensure he feels it.

Assisting Morris in setting up his new site is scuba-diving enthusiast, software engineer, real ale lover and frequent Green Arrow contributor John of Gwent.

John, like Morris and Elizabeth Walton before him, isn't too keen on having his real name and that of the BNP spoken in the same sentence. It may, after all, prove harmful to his online Velvetwood Consultants business.

John has been secretly testing various mock-ups of the new Green Arrow site on his own server over the past few days, using the https protocol to hide his efforts from prying eyes, including, presumably, those of his customers, as here:

In true BNP fashion, John of Gwent cannot help himself and feels bound to turn the relatively simple process of setting up a new website into a drama - "I also see a few spirited souls trying to destroy the site by running the 'install' script that came with it. Denise, Atreus and Weyman you really MUST get round to training your cybertroopers to READ the manuals".

Now the name "John of Gwent" is, we suppose, intended to conjure up images of a handsome valiant medieval knight, one hand guiding his horse across the Welsh landscape while the other holds a lance ready to fell the foes of the nation (or those of the BNP, at any rate).

The reality is far less romantic. The knightly steed is stabled at the home of one John Roderick Voisey, of XXXXXXXXXX Close, Newport, Gwent, and the knight himself does not exactly exude an air of noble heroism:

For those struggling to make sense of the picture, Voisey is the one with hair, the other is an innocent snake.

Have a nice weekend, folks :-)

BNP councillor defends party after members burn gollywog at festival

15 Comment (s)
A BNP councillor has defended the party after members were filmed burning a gollywog and making racist comments during a festival. Paul Golding (left), British National Party councillor for the St Mary’s ward in Swanley, has condemned members who were shown performing the mock trial of the gollywog.

A News of the World reporter filmed the ritual while undercover at the party’s Red White and Blue family festival in Derbyshire last month. The group, which included a 12-year-old girl, dubbed the stuffed toy ‘Winston’ and charged him with being black before dropping him onto a fire. One member, identified as John Coombes, of Maidenhead, Berkshire, a council candidate for that area, said: “He thinks he's not black. He's charged with being black. Get on there.” The 45-year-old added: “Let's get a real one. In the town we'll find one or two.”

Police in Derbyshire have launched an investigation after seeing the video footage. A spokeswoman said: “Officers will be contacting the newspaper which alleges that an undercover reporter witnessed unlawful activity while at the event.”

Cllr Golding, who was elected in February, says the views of the people involved in the mock trial are not representative of the BNP. He said: “If you subtract these morons from our 13,000 members it is something like 0.01 per cent of the party. They are all being disciplined and it will be very severe, if not being kicked out of the party.”

The News of the World article claims members gave Nazi-style salutes and shouted Sieg Heil, and music with racist lyrics supporting Hitler was played. Cllr Golding said he was at the festival but was not aware of the racist activity, and he says the party is not racist.

Party leader MEP Nick Griffin was also at the event, which was attended by around 1,200 BNP supporters. He said the party will be organised to give non-whites no power if new legislation forces it to allow them to become members, the article alleges. Cllr Golding says the BNP is for white British people, so there would be no reason for non-whites to join other than to cause trouble within the party.

Last month News Shopper revealed that a Gravesend woman convicted of intimidating an Asian mother was a member of the BNP, after Cllr Golding made a video stating she was not. Helen Forster, aged 32, of Park Place, denied being a member in the video posted on YouTube and the BNP website, but she was registered under a different surname - Colclough. Cllr Golding says he was unaware Forster was a member of the party under a different name at the time of making the video.

BNP Patch tribute angers Legion

3 Comment (s)
The Royal British Legion in Somerset says it is appalled that a tribute to Harry Patch has been posted on the British National Party website.

Robin White, chairman of the Wells branch, believes the tribute implies that the BNP stands for the same things Harry Patch stood for. "Knowing Harry as I did, he would have no truck with the BNP," he said.

A spokesman for the BNP criticised the Royal British Legion for making the matter a political issue. "I think it's a shame that these organisations are coming out to have a pop at the BNP when we've always supported the troops," said John Walker.

Mr Patch, the last surviving tommy from the trenches of World War One, died last month at the age of 111.

"Harry's whole ethos was about peace and reconciliation," added Mr White. "My understanding of what the BNP does is in no way related to peace and reconciliation."

It is not the first time that the Royal British Legion have been critical of the BNP. In May, they wrote a private letter to BNP leader, Nick Griffin, asking him not to wear a poppy badge. They accused Mr Griffin of trying to politicise "one of the nation's most treasured and beloved symbols".


German Newspaper Gives Blueprints for Nazi Death Camp to Israel

2 Comment (s)
Sketched on yellowing parchment, the 29 blueprints presented to Israel's prime minister
Thursday lay out the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz in chilling detail, with gas chambers,
crematoria, delousing facilities and watch towers drawn to scale.

"There are those who deny that the Holocaust happened," Benjamin Netanyahu said as he accepted the documents as a gift to Israel's Holocaust memorial, where they will go on display next year. "Let them come to Jerusalem and look at these plans, these plans for the factory of death."

Netanyahu lingered over the large sheets spread on a table. Stamped with the Nazi abbreviation for concentration camp "K.L. Auschwitz," one of the largest featured multi-colored sketches, with barracks and even latrines drawn in detail. Other smaller sheets showed architectural designs of individual buildings, drawn from various angles.

The Israeli leader was accompanied by his wife, Sara, whose father was the only member of his family to survive the Nazi genocide that killed 6 million Jews during World War II. She watched somberly as the documents, which date from 1941 to 1943, were unfolded. Also present was Yossi Peled, an Israeli Cabinet minister and former general whose father was killed by the Nazis and whose mother survived Auschwitz in one of the barracks detailed in the blueprints. Peled himself was hidden until age 7 by a family in Belgium who raised him as a Christian. He discovered his Jewish roots in 1948 and was taken to Israel two years later.

In Germany for a visit that combined talks on the Mideast conflict with acknowledgments of the painful past that binds the two countries, Netanyahu drew a clear parallel between the events of the Nazi era and the present day. The world did not do enough to stop the murder of Europe's Jews, he said, and must be careful now to take rapid action against "armed barbarism."

"We cannot allow those who wish to perpetrate mass death, those who call for the destruction of the Jewish people or the Jewish state to go unchallenged," Netanyahu said.

Though he did not explicitly mention Iran, his comments were a clear reference to the Tehran regime and its nuclear program, which Israel sees as a grave threat and wants blocked by stronger international sanctions. Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said Israel should be "wiped off the map."

Axel Springer Verlag, the publisher of the mass circulation Bild newspaper, obtained the Auschwitz blueprints last year from a German man who said he found them when cleaning out an apartment in what was formerly East Berlin. The publisher and Germany's federal archive have confirmed the documents' authenticity.

Numbering found on the back of the plans indicates they may have been taken from an archive, possibly the collection of documents on the Third Reich kept by the Stasi.

The documents were displayed for several weeks earlier this year in the lobby of Bild's headquarters in Berlin. The newspaper's editor, Kai Diekmann, said the publisher decided to give the sketches to Israel to ensure that as many people as possible could see them.

"These plans have an important function — they remind us of a crime that, with the passing of time, seems ever more incomprehensible," Diekmann said. "It is of the utmost importance to continue to be reminded of it."

While they are not the only original Auschwitz blueprints that still exist — others were captured by the Soviet Red Army and brought to Moscow — they will be the first for Israel's Yad Vashem memorial, its chairman, Avner Shalev, told The Associated Press.

"This set is a very early one, which was found here in Berlin, from the autumn of '41," Shalev said. "It brings a better understanding of the whole process, and the intention of the planners of the complex, and from this perspective it is important."

Shalev said the sketches will be on display in Jerusalem beginning Jan. 27 as part of a special exhibit marking the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. The blueprints include general plans for the original Auschwitz camp and the expansion of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, where most of the killings were carried out. They were initialed by the head of the SS, Heinrich Himmler, and Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Hoess.

One of the drawings, dated Oct. 14, 1941, shows plans for construction of a "Waffen SS prisoner of war camp" with rows of what appear to be barracks. A notation in the bottom right says it was drafted by a prisoner identified only by his number: "Nr. 471."

German historian Ralf Georg Reuth, who reviewed the documents after they were discovered, noted that it was common to have prisoners draw up the plans for gas chambers where they would later be killed. More than 1 million people, mostly Jews, died in the gas chambers or through forced labor, disease or starvation at Auschwitz, which the Nazis built after occupying Poland.

Later Thursday, Netanyahu visited a house on Berlin's Wannsee Lake that was the site of an infamous Jan. 20, 1942, meeting at which top Nazis formalized plans for the systematic killing of Europe's Jewish population.

Germany and Israel, which was established three years after the Nazi defeat, today enjoy close ties. On Thursday, Chancellor Angela Merkel underlined Germany's special commitment, saying it was her country's obligation to "defend Israel always."

After those statements, she and Netanyahu shared a spontaneous and warm handshake.

BNP propagandist Shane Sinclair says “we are anti-Catholicism”

6 Comment (s)
This article was submitted by one of our readers, Hexapla. We welcome any contributions from our supporters (as long as those contributions conform to the law and are in reasonably good taste). Please send your articles to us via email.

Anti-Catholic propaganda par excellence

In our fifth article on anti-Catholic bigotry within the BNP we introduce readers to anti-Catholic BNP propaganda maestro Shane Sinclair, described by BNP leader Nick Griffin as:
“the nationalist movement's best ever propagandist”
And, being the BNP’s ‘best ever propagandist’, Shane Sinclair published on his now defunct Swansea Loyalist website the anti-Catholic article, The Five Protestant Bishops Whom Rome Burned. The following is an extract from that article:
“There is as you would expect from a Unionist/Loyalist website a Protestant slant ... we are anti-Catholicism as a religion ... if anything we feel sorry for Catholics and hope one day that they believe in the real word of God….the Bible. This section highlights the lives of Five Protestant Bishops who were burned at the stake by the forces of Rome.”
Shane Sinclair’s violent past

Shane Sinclair (whose real name is Shane Whalley) was once a leading member of a violent Swansea-based outfit of pro-BNP football hooligans. But, Shane Sinclair never really broke with his violent past. With not just a criminal conviction for threatening behaviour, a drunken Shane Sinclair also attacked a member of the public who challenged him on his vandalism to public property in Cambridge. In light of his violent tendencies, it is interesting to learn that Shane Sinclair was once responsible for developing the BNP’s political strategy, taught leading BNP officials the tactics of community politics and helped establish the BNP’s Swansea branch.

Shane Sinclair’s anti-Catholic history of Wales

In another anti-Catholic article published by Shane Sinclair, How come Wales is Loyalist?, it is claimed that:
“I have had a lot of mail from republicans who are none too happy that there are Loyalists in Wales. Wales is a Protestant country and while we acknowledge there are republicans here (mainly Plaid supporters,) let us give you a few reasons why we are Loyalist...........Wales has historically been "THE" Protestant stronghold of Great Britain. During the glorious revolution, King William himself, formed both the Royal Welsh Fusillers and "The Royal Cheshire Regiment". Both regiments followed him to the "Boyne", and fought to preserve their religion. Of all the great battles, the Royal Welsh Fusillers have fought in since, none have been so important”
We very much doubt that the vast, vast majority of Welsh people agree with this bigoted anti-Catholic reading of the history of Wales promoted by Shane Sinclair. But, then again the BNP regularly distorts and deforms history to promote its racist and sectarian ideological agenda. After all, Shane Sinclair is the BNP’s ‘best ever propagandist’.

Shane Sinclair’s double life and support for anti-Catholic Loyalist terrorist groups

As with many BNP officials and members, Shane Sinclair was quite open about his support for anti-Catholic terrorist groups. Shane Sinclair’s website also carried articles in support of Merseyside-based members of the anti-Catholic terrorist group Ulster Volunteer Force arrested for smuggling illegal guns to their Belfast counterparts. The Swansea Loyalist website also attracted messages of support from Loyalist terrorist groups and neo-nazi terrorist groups such as Combat 18 (founded by the BNP in the 1990s) and Blood and Honour.

Interestingly and somewhat paradoxically, Shane Sinclair once stood as the Liberal Democrat’s parliamentary candidate for Swansea East. However, he was expelled from the Liberal Democrats after it was discovered that Shane Sinclair was secretly posting offensive messages on an extremist Loyalist website that carried a hit-list of alleged enemies of the loyalist movement. The website was operated by a supporter of the anti-Catholic terrorist group the Loyalist Volunteer Force. Shane Sinclair was condemned by Welsh Assembly Liberal Democrat representative Peter Black as leading a “double life”. Peter Black also said that:
“By exposing Mr. Sinclair in this way the Welsh Liberal Democrats are sending out a positive signal, that we are a party that will not tolerate racism and bigotry at any level. I am relieved that Shane Sinclair's double life has been found out and I congratulate the media for their part in bringing this to our attention”
We definitely share Peter Black’s sentiments.

Shane Sinclair and the British Ulster Alliance link

Writing as ‘Swansea Loyalist’ on the Protestant Unionist Loyalist Social Education website, Shane Sinclair, pejoratively calling non-Whites “ethnics”, boasted of fellow Swansea-based football hooligans attending racist BNP meetings. Indeed, Shane Sinclair, at one point, sat at the heart of a three-way nexus between the BNP, the BNP-linked British Ulster Alliance (BUA) and the Swansea Loyalist website (which later changed its name to BUA South Wales). It therefore comes as no surprise to read on the BUA’s website open support for the racist BNP:
“Similarly, the BNP and NF cannot defeat the IRA. The correct remedy must be applied, in this case Loyalism. And likewise, Loyalist groups cannot stop uncontrolled immigration into Britain. But political groups like the BNP can.”
According to the Derry Journal’s article, British Nationalist Group Set To Visit Fountain (published 24 February 2004):
“The British Ulster Alliance was officially formed in October 1999 by loyalists, patriots and British nationalists in England. The group said: "From its inception the Alliance has vehemently opposed the 'Peace Process', viewing it as an addition to the 'Anglo-Irish Agreement' and other similar pro-'united Ireland' initiatives introduced by successive British governments. Their website goes on to say: "The Alliance sincerely believes that the surrender of loyalist weapons would rapidly accelerate the sell-out of Ulster””
It is claimed that the BUA is a front group for the anti-Catholic terrorist group, the Ulster Defence Association (UDA) (aka the Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF)), which murdered hundreds of Catholic civilians in Northern Ireland/Ulster over a thirty year period. BUA leader Frank Portinari was jailed in 1993 for smuggling guns to the UDA/UFF. In October 2002 the BUA organised a rally outside 10 Downing Street calling for the release of UFF anti-Catholic murderer Johnny Adair (who has been praised by senior BNP official Mark Collett). Flying UFF banners, the BUA protest was attended by members of the BNP, Combat 18 and the National Front. Further BNP links to the BUA were revealed by BBC News in the form of Loughborough-based BNP candidate Warren Glass and BNP activist Dave Hill.

Shane Sinclair’s Swedish odyssey

The irony is this – Shane Sinclair is now eking out a living as an economic immigrant in Sweden! Last time I heard, Shane Sinclair was whining on about his work status as a non-Swedish national being potentially threatened if the Swedish Left Party is elected to power and enacts its threat to withdraw Sweden from the European Union. LOL.

Hopefully, this article, along with the other articles in this series, can contribute to not just exposing the BNP’s residual anti-Catholicism but also its appalling racism, anti-Semitism, sexism and homophobia. In light of Shane Sinclair’s racist and sectarian nonsense, can anyone with an adult, rational and sane mind ever contemplate voting for the BNP? For our previous articles on BNP anti-Catholicism, we refer the interested reader to the following:

Beware “the Lure of Rome”: BNP writer says Catholics are the “Anti-Christ” and “Satanic”

Muslim man claims he was kidnapped and threatened at knifepoint over prayer sessions

17 Comment (s)
• Incident linked to BNP, says community leader
• Far-right Essex councillor denies members to blame

Racist attackers abducted a Muslim community leader at knifepoint, bundled him into a car and threatened his life unless he stopped running prayer sessions in a community hall that has been the target of a British National party campaign.

Police have confirmed they are treating the incident as a hate crime and are investigating links with an earlier firebomb attack on the same man's home.

Noor Ramjanally (photo, top), 35, told the Guardian he had been the victim of a terror campaign which has also involved threats against his family after he began the Islamic prayer sessions in March. He said he fears for his life after the abduction at knifepoint, which happened at his home in Loughton, Essex, on Monday.

A BNP campaign has been blamed for rising tensions in the area. The party has been leafleting the area warning of "Islamification" which it says flows from the weekly two-hour prayer session, which it claims is a prelude to a mosque being built.

Ramjanally said he was abducted from his home in daylight by two white men who threatened him with a knife, bundled him into a car then drove him into woodland. They demanded he stop organising the Friday prayer sessions at Murray hall community centre. He said the words from his abductors matched the BNP propaganda opposing the Muslim prayers. The same demand was contained in hate mail he received last month threatening his wife and child, he said.

Councillor Pat Richardson, leader of the BNP group on the local council, said her party was not behind the attacks on Ramjanally. "Firebombing is not a British method. A brick through the window is a British method, but firebombing is not a way of showing displeasure," she said.

Ramjanally said: "I believe the BNP campaign has inspired the violence."

He said he was snatched at around 12.15pm and feared he would be murdered during his ordeal. "I was at home and the door bell rang. I opened the door and they grabbed my wrists, pulling me out by force," he said.

"It was two white men. They put a knife upon my stomach, and said do what you're told or you'll get hurt." He said he was then bundled into the boot of a 4 x 4 vehicle, with one of the men holding a knife to his chest.

Ramjanally said he was driven for 10 minutes to nearby Epping Forest, walked around, and then threatened: "They said 'We don't want your Islamic group in Loughton.' I was scared, I feared for my life. I was in a forest, a knife was held against me, how would you feel? They said, 'If you don't stop, we'll come back.'"

The attackers then left Ramjanally alone in the woods. Essex police said an investigation was under way into the incident and two earlier ones at Ramjanally's home.

"Police are treating the incidents as 'hate crime' and a possible motivation would appear to be a link to the use of the Murray hall, Loughton by the Muslim community for Friday prayers," the force said.

Superintendent Simon Williams of Essex police said: "We are treating these offences with the utmost seriousness and are putting considerable resources into the investigation.

"While that investigation continues we will be working with the whole population of Loughton to ensure that all members of the community are free to practice their religion and beliefs safely and freely."The prayer sessions at Murray hall began on 27 March, with nine people worshipping. Now up to 80 people attend.

On 2 July, Ramjanally received an anonymous threatening letter telling him to stop using the hall for prayers and stating the author knew which school his child went to and which car he drove. The next day his flat was firebombed. The BNP has four councillors in the area and its leafleting campaign in late July has been attacked as inflammatory and divisive.

Richardson said she had seen the leaflet before it was released last month. She was sceptical of Ramjanally's claims of a terror campaign. "I told the police we want to object that fingers were being pointed in our direction," she said.

She also denied that BNP members were behind any violence. She believes that the weekly Muslim prayer meeting is a prelude to an attempt to encourage more Muslims to move into the area, and thus to vote out the BNP. "I was wondering whether it was a ploy to attract more Muslims to the area to try and vote out the BNP councillors," she said.

Richardson said the Muslim prayer meeting did not fit in with the area's mainly white population: "It's not really natural for the area because there are so few Muslims," she said.

At Murray hall yesterday there was little sign of the building being turned into a mosque. The hall's caretaker said a children's group was using the premises.

Passing by was lifelong Loughton resident Paul Luton, 57, who said: "Who says [the hall] can't be used for different things. A community is a community. If there's a local community of Muslims, they're local people."

Mohammad Fahim runs the nearest mosque to Loughton which was firebombed in 2000. He said racists have used the fears of new mosques in the area to stoke racial and anti-Muslim tensions.

The BNP describes Fahim's mosque, in south Woodford, four miles from Loughton, as "notorious" and claims it has incited violence. In fact, Fahim works as a chaplain for the Metropolitan police.Loughton, which borders the eastern fringe of London, is affluent in parts, with a number of houses on its millionaire's row, called Alderton Hill, owned by British Hindu families. It is also a road, said Fahim, where women wearing headscarves are racially abused by passing white motorists. He advised one Muslim woman to remove her headscarf to avoid being a victim of hate crime. According to the 2001 census, just over 1%of the area's residents describe themselves as Muslim.

One owner of a takeaway, who said he would fear for his safety if either he or his shop were named, said he often faced racist abuse: "This area is rubbish. So many times there is trouble."

Last year a 20-strong white gang attacked his shop, leaving one Asian employee with head wounds.

He said often the abuse and violence happened when people were drunk. "Tonight they call you Paki and tomorrow they come in for food."

Abdurahman Jafar, chair of the Muslim Safety Forum, which advises the police, said: "The campaign of terror has followed a campaign organised by the BNP whereby they delivered hate literature to locals citing the small Friday prayer sessions as evidence of how 'the Islamification process is almost complete'." Recent months have seen a sharp rise in religiously motivated attacks against the Muslim community including attacks on outwardly Muslim appearing individuals, mosques and pogroms directed against the Muslim Community."

How the hate campaign unfolded

27 March 2009: Nine people attend first Muslim prayers at Murray hall, Loughton, Essex, organised by Noor Ramjanally

2 July: Ramjanally receives anonymous hate mail warning his group to stop. The author says they know which school his child goes to, what car he drives. The letter is delivered by hand

3 July: Ramjanally returns to his flat at midday to find the door ablaze after a suspected firebombing attack

23 July: A BNP leaflet appears alleging Murray hall will be turned into a mosque and warning in other parts of east London that "the Islamification process is almost complete". The BNP says: "We'll do all in our power to prevent Islam creeping into our town." BNP group council leader says she approved the leaflet before its release

24 August: Ramjanally abducted by two white men wielding a knife, driven to Epping Forest and again threatened if he does not stop running his prayer group

25 August: Essex police say all incidents are being treated as hate crime, with a possible motive being the use of Murray hall

26 August: At the hall the BNP says is being turned into a mosque, children of all races engage in soft play.

The BNP and Mr Khan - facts not included

27 Comment (s)
It's been a vintage summer of lies and deceit for the British National Party.

To pick out just a few highlights, there was the DDoS attack that never was, the Helen Forster/Colclough affair, a second DDoS attack that never was, and umpteen promises to sue Searchlight, the Mirror and Uncle Tom Cobley and all.

The BNP is very good at lying to the public, but even better at lying to its own members - which seems to be the sole intention behind half the tall tales which appear on its website. That, and, of course, the self-manufactured opportunities to scam yet more cash from the pockets of an all too credulous membership, which has even been got to believe that Nick Griffin cannot use part of his Euro salary (his personal income) to help fund the BNP.

No fool, that Nick Griffin.

No fools either are we, so when the screaming words Muslim Post Office Manager Bans Woman from Sending Parcel Because Her Son Serves in Afghanistan headlined an article from Welsh regional organiser Brian Mahoney on the BNP's interminably slow website, we could be fairly certain that a Muslim Post Office Manager Did Not Ban Woman from Sending Parcel Because Her Son Serves in Afghanistan.

Now had the headline appeared in the Daily Mail there might just have been a kernel of truth to the story, twisted and sensationalised out of all proportion to be sure, but distantly predicated on a fact nevertheless. But this story originated with the BNP, a party which considers facts to be an optional extra.

The gist of the story is quickly told: the mother of a soldier serving in Afghanistan took a parcel addressed to the said son to a Muslim-owned Post Office, and was told in no uncertain terms that she could not send it due to the fact of her son serving in Afghanistan.

As Mahoney puts it: "A Muslim post office manager in Cardiff has refused to serve a British soldier’s mother — because her son serves in Afghanistan."

You would have thought that something like that would - rightly - create something of a stir. Wouldn't the local press have got on the case? Wouldn't the Daily Mail have stopped the presses? Wouldn't local councillors and MPs have got involved?

But none of that happened.

The first, and only news of this putative cause celebre appeared on the BNP website - the BNP had scooped the world!

To quote from the BNP's version of events:
“Mrs [Maria] Davies’ 21-year-old son is a soldier in a Welsh regiment who recently began an eight month tour of duty in Afghanistan,” Mr Brian Mahoney, BNP leader in Wales, said.


“Imagine, then, Mrs Davies’ shock when the owner of her local post office in Wilson Road, Ely, Cardiff, a certain Mr Khan, asked her where her son was serving.

“When she told him Afghanistan, he informed her that she was not welcome to send him anything from her post office, either packages or money,” Mr Mahoney said. He also instructed his staff not to serve her.

“All this took place publicly in the shop in front of witnesses,” he continued. “It left Mrs Davies astonished, frustrated and upset.”

Even a neighbour who later offered to post her parcel was refused service because they had identified from whom the parcel was being sent.
Accompanying the article was a video interview with Mrs Davies, in which Mrs Davies confirmed to Mahoney that Mr Khan had told her she was banned from the Post Office "because my son was in Afghan" (sic).

The video left a number of us unconvinced that this was the whole truth, mostly because of Mrs Davies' uncomfortable demeanour throughout, but more tellingly her assertion that "I know he [Mr Khan] can do bad things", which suggests that Mrs Davies and Mr Khan have a history.

And so, it turns out, they do.

Mr Anjum Alam Khan owns or manages a number of shops in the same road as his Post Office in Wilson Road, one of them being a Nisa convenience store, at which Mrs Davies was a customer. Earlier this year a technical fault with the store's electronic payment system led to several Nisa customers being repeatedly debited for items they had previously purchased, and among their number was Maria Davies, who lost £200.

Mrs Davies, who is unemployed and lives on benefits, was rightly aggrieved, particularly when her bank charged her for going overdrawn. “I can’t buy any food or anything,” she told her local paper. “This has taken my child support money, my tax credit, my child benefit, my income support and a portion of my next child support payment.”

Nisa promised to repay its serially charged customers, and to refund any bank charges incurred. There was no suggestion of impropreity on the part of Mr Khan.

We cannot help but to believe that the bad blood between Mr Khan and Mrs Davies might have something to do with this, and is the fount of Mrs Davies' statement that "I know he can do bad things", and that whatever passed between them is perhaps the reason Mrs Davies is banned from all of Mr Khan's premises.

Whatever did pass between them we'll probably never know, but we do know that Mr Khan felt provoked enough to impose a ban, and that the ban has nothing to do with Mrs Davies's son serving in Afghanistan.

In fact Mr Khan supports the British operation in Afghanistan, and his Post Office has collected on behalf of British troops. He is considered a hard-working member of the community.

But, as an Asian Muslim, he is everything the BNP hates, and naturally the party has maliciously published his contact details, which can be for one purpose only.

For their part, Mr Khan, and Post Office Manageress Mrs Thomas, have issued the following statement:
“There is absolutely no truth in the allegation made to the British National Party that the Post Office in Wilson Road, Ely, Cardiff will not accept parcels for British troops in Afghanistan.

It should not be repeated and we reserve the right to pursue legal action against any person or body repeating the allegation and call for its removal from any website or other publication.

The Wilson Road Post Office has always accepted and continues to accept such parcels. Indeed the Wilson Road shops including the Post Office recently held a ‘Heroes Collection’ for British troops.

The allegation is false and malicious and related to a separate dispute with a customer.

As a result that customer is not welcome at these premises but our services can be accessed by someone else on their behalf if they so wish.”
And so there we have it.

Another BNP lie squarely nailed - but don't blink, another one will be along very soon now.

BNP to be fined for donations

28 Comment (s)
The British National party (BNP) will be issued with a fine for failing to issue a return to the Electoral Commission concerning its donations. The party will be issued with a separate fine for failing to deliver their latest annual statement of accounts.

"This is unacceptable and the party will be issued with fines for both reporting failures," said Peter Wardle, chief executive of the Electoral Commission. "We will also be assessing the systems they have in place to ensure compliance with the law.”

The BNP were not the only small party to face the disapproval of the commission, with the Co-operative party and the Christian party both reporting "very large" donations late.

"We'll be assessing the systems they have in place to ensure compliance with the law and expect to see them reporting donations on time in the future," Mr Wardle said.

The Conservatives received the most donations, with £6,394,673 going to the opposition. Labour received £4,391,632, while the Liberal Democrats received £1,132,079. The 20 political parties registered in Great Britain received a total of £13.2 million in donations between April and June 2009, according to returns handed in to the commission. Figures were higher than normal, a fact most analysts put down to the local and European elections.

“This was the fourth highest quarter ever for donations – the second highest outside a general election quarter – and we received donations reports from a larger number of parties than usual," Mr Wardle said.

Police investigate racism claims at BNP event

4 Comment (s)
Derbyshire police has launched an investigation into allegations of racist behaviour at the BNPs Red, White and Blue Festival.

The allegations - made in a national newspaper - involved claims that a 12-year-old girl burned a golly doll at the annual event. A spokeswoman for Derbyshire police said officers will be contacting the newspaper, which alleges that an undercover reporter witnessed unlawful activity while at the event.

Red, White and Blue was held for the third consecutive year on fields off Codnor-Denby Lane, Denby, earlier this month.

An article in the News of the World said it had sent an undercover reporter to the event who saw evidence of racist behaviour.

The BNP said it had launched an investigation into the claims.

Symbol of the National Socialist Movement, the BNP's US-based Nazi allies
In a recent BNP fundraising email, BNP leader and convicted Holocaust denier Nick Griffin gleefully thanks the avowedly US Nazi party, the National Socialist Movement (also called NSM or NSM88), for its help in funding the BNP. In the opening line to the email, Nick Griffin states:

"I am very grateful to .. you - whose generosity and determination allowed us to reach all our targets… and in several cases surpass those targets!".

Nick Griffin goes on to write that the National Socialist Movement's funding support is crucial to enabling the BNP to meet its goals:

"During August we will set even more ambitious targets and I know you will be there to help us reach these goals that are so important for the progress of our movement."

"Your continued participation in our online operation is crucial to the continued success of our Party - without you our capacity to campaign, raise funds and find new members would be severely curtailed!"

Nick Griffin ends the email by thanking the National Socialist Movement for its most recent donation to the BNP:

"Once again thank you for giving so generously during the month of July."

The National Socialist Movement claims to be the largest and most active
Nazi organization in the United States. Responsible for the infamous 2005 Toledo riots, the website of the National Socialist Movement openly carries articles in praise of Hitler and angry, racist diatribes against Jews and non-Whites and support for the BNP. It is therefore not surprising that the BNP and Nick Griffin have sought to maintain active links with the National Socialist Movement. Indeed, there is no hiding the BNP's neo-Nazi proclivities.

‘We should have challenged the BNP years ago’

4 Comment (s)
The decision of Trevor Phillips’ equalities body to the British National Party to court over the far-right outfit’s “apartheid constitution” is a brave gamble, but one which seems to enjoy fairly widespread support

One community activist, who first mooted the idea of challenging the BNP’s very legitimacy three years ago, said he couldn’t understand why it had not been done earlier. Nic Careem, a former Labour activist from Camden in north London, who is now with the Conservatives, said he originally argued that black and Asian people should join the BNP en mass to cause chaos and expose the extent of racism inside the party of Nick Griffin.

He told OBV Blog today: ‘I was speaking about this at meetings three years ago, saying that we should challenge the BNP’s legitimacy from within. I’m glad that the equalities commission are now doing it. I’ve never understood why the old CRE [Commission for Racial Equality] never challenged it.’

It’s doubtful whether many Black people could be persuaded to become BNP ‘entryists’ in order to destroy the far right party from within, but there is certainly merit in the legal challenge to the BNP’s constitution, which forbids non-white people from joining.

The point about the BNP’s policy of discriminating on the grounds of race matters because they are a party that on the surface competes for the votes of all voters, and seeks to govern for all races, even though we know that, in their hearts, they only wish to serve white people.

It’s a very different situation compared, say, to the Black Police Association, a body that does not seek to police only for Black people but wants to a quality service for everyone. The BPA, like any Black association in a large public authority, is simply a coming together of Black people to lobby for equality.

Unlike the BNP, who want to actively discriminate in favour of white people, I have never come across any BPA member who wants preferential treatment for Black officers. The key difference seems to have been lost on Telegraph columnist Gerald Warner, who claims today that the move against the BNP by the Equality and Human Rights Commission will end up “backfiring” and lead to the BPA being outlawed. Warner writes:
“Many people feel considerable unease about our police force being Balkanised into ethnic groupings. (Would a National White Police Association be tolerated?) It is difficult to avoid the impression that Trevor Phillips is tugging at a thread on his pullover that could unravel the whole garment.”
While Warner is voicing a commonly-held opinion, his misguided views need to be challenged head-on if the EHRC’s legal action against the BNP is to be taken seriously by the public at large.

There is a world of difference between an organisation that believes in racial supremacy, and a group that comes together because they know strength-in-numbers is the only way to tackle institutional racism. But it’s time to make this argument all over again now.

Flackwell Heath's Richard Hamilton attended BNP golliwog burning

11 Comment (s)
A BNP election candidate who attended the burning of a golliwog last night branded it “out of order”.

Richard Hamilton said he did not instigate the burning of the effigy at a British National Party festival, featured in Sunday’s News of the World. Ex-army Mr Hamilton, from Flackwell Heath, was among those at the Derbyshire “ceremony” that was branded “unacceptable” by national BNP chiefs. He stood for the Marlow seat for the BNP at June’s Buckinghamshire County Council election and got 163 votes, 1.5 per cent of ballots cast.

An anti-BNP campaigner today said the burning, over the weekend of August 15/16, showed the “true face” of the party.

But in a statement Mr Hamilton he said: “I didn't instigate this, I just passed one of the many campfires. I did think it was out of order but it had started in a light hearted way. I understand that it will have caused offence. I also wasn't very happy with some of the comments made.”

A video placed on the News of the World’s website features those around the campfire making racist comments.

Buckinghamshire BNP spokesman Matthew Tait said Mr Hamilton was not a member of the county branch and his membership has been suspended.

Calling him a “wonderful family man” he said: “It is unfortunate and not something we want to be associated with. It makes us look ridiculous and really bad.” He added: “He is a really nice guy, he wouldn’t mean anything malicious to anyone, he wouldn’t say boo to a goose. He has been roped into it.”

National party spokesman John Walker said the party “distances itself completely from the unacceptable behaviour” of Hamilton and another man featured in the story. He said: “The whole matter has now been referred to the party’s hierarchy for further action and potential disciplinary steps.”

But Gerry Gable, spokesman for Stop the BNP, said: “It is appalling and the true face of the BNP. Anyone who frowns on this is in a small minority. There is nothing light-hearted about it. Why didn’t he say ‘this makes the party look bad, why don’t we stop it?’”

BNP faces court case over membership rules

37 Comment (s)
Equality and Human Rights Commission believes far right party discriminates against 'potential or actual members on racial grounds'

The British National party is being taken to court over claims its membership criteria breach human rights law.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission said it had issued county court proceedings against the party leader, Nick Griffin, and two other officials today over the BNP's membership rules. The party's constitution limits members to people who are "'indigenous Caucasian' and defined 'ethnic groups' emanating from that race".

The commission first wrote to the BNP in June stating that it believed the party is in breach of the Race Relations Act. The far right organisation responded by saying it intended to clarify the word "white" on its website.

However, the commission said today that it believes the BNP is still discriminating against "potential or actual members on racial grounds".

"The BNP has said that it is not willing to amend its membership criteria which we believe are discriminatory and unlawful," said John Wadham the commission's group director. The commission has a statutory duty to use our regulatory powers to enforce compliance with the law so we have today issued county court proceedings against the BNP."

Wadham said the BNP could still avoid court action if it moved quickly to change its membership rules.

However, a spokesman for the party said it intended to fight the move, claiming the action was politically motivated.

"It is strange that this is happening now when these rules have been in place for a long time," said the BNP's deputy leader, Simon Darby. "And we certainly resent the fact that some unelected body which is 70% ethnic can accuse us of racism."

The commission said it had decided not to take action on two other grounds set out in its original letter to the BNP after the party agreed to comply with the law.

BNP rat enthusiast and racist lowlife Jolene Brinklow
Nice to see BNP member and rat enthusiast Jolene Brinklow (aka Bikerjoe) doing the BNP brand justice when she racially abuses Asians as ‘bloody Pakis’ in the following posting on her Windows Live blog:
“I took the phone along with me. i knew that there wouldnt be anybody there with that kind of cash on them, but i saw it as free advertising. really peed off, the only people that even asked about it were foreign. i really didnt want to sell it to them! and although i knew that we had way too many polish in our locality. a good 90% of white people there were polish. talk about feeling lke a stranger in your own town. at least they were a damn site more polite thasn the bl**dy pakis, who treat us all with comtempt, then have the nerve to say we're the ones with a problem!! anyway thats another rant. we so need a BNP party setting up round here!”

Aside from Jolene Brinklow’s appalling spelling and grammar, one is rather curious with her blog description of her family arrangement when she emphatically tells us that she is “settled with two boys (rats, not kids!)”. I’d hate to think that she and her BNP partner Gary Osborne, both hailing from Banbury, have been breeding like rats. But, given the unforgivably racist nature of Jolene Brinklow’s retarded blog entry, it seems that like every self-respecting rat, she dwells in the sewer.

BNP rally hotel licence revoked

17 Comment (s)
A Blackpool hotel which plays host to the annual BNP conference has had its entertainment and alcohol licence revoked.

The New Kimberley on South Promenade was brought before Blackpool Council's licensing panel for posing a risk to public safety, and failing to comply with health and safety notices.

The hotel caused public outcry after hosting three of the far-right BNP conferences since 2006, as well as this summer's "celebration event" after two party members were elected to the European Parliament in May.

New Kimberley manager Peter Metcalfe, who was fined £1,000 for nine offences of breaching food hygiene safety rules last year, was issued with two enforcement notices from Lancashire Fire and Rescue, which found the hotel to had inadequate fire safety standards. And Blackpool Council officers had visited the 50-bedroomed hotel on numerous occasions, issuing a hygiene improvement notice in October.

At Friday's meeting, Gareth Shaw, spokesman for Blackpool Council's Health and Safety Enforcement Section, said: "We have had many unpleasant dealings with the people responsible for the New Kimberley. We issued a hygiene improvement notice in October after customer complaints since 2006. We also requested the hotel produce a certificate proving there was no asbestos risk on the premises, and that regular testing of electrical equipment took place."

The hotel was sent a letter demanding action on April 22, but on June 10 the council was forced to issue court proceedings. Management was fined £525 for seven offences of failing to comply with health and safety notices.

Mr Shaw added: "We've since visited, but Mr Metcalfe has become very aggressive and we have seen no efforts made to improve health and safety."

The fire service's enforcement notices to the hotel, whose leaseholder is Susan Metcalfe, also demanded that smoke detectors should be fitted, and that designated fire exits should be identified. These requests were ignored, said fire chiefs.

Paul Roper, spokesman for Lancashire Fire and Rescue, said: "I've little confidence the managers of this hotel will ever comply with health and safety laws. We've been extremely accommodating with Mr and Mrs Metcalfe. We granted an extension when our enforcement notice, issued in July 2007, ran out, as Mr Metcalfe said the ownership of the hotel had changed hands, and now belonged to a Mr John Donut, of South Shore Travel.

"We've tried to get hold of this man, but we've never been able to, and therefore we have reason to doubt his existence. The managers of this hotel have continually failed to meet any safety standards and therefore we support the council in their call for a review of the licence."

David Kelly, spokesman and "designated fire safety officer" for the New Kimberly, said: "We have tens of thousands of visitors every year, and we have never had any problems. I know everything has been dealt with on an ad hoc basis, but we have had many problems and I'm determined to sort them out.

"I've never met Mr Donut, but I believe he had some financial input and then moved to Indonesia, and he ceased to own the hotel from August this year. We have also had firebomb threats because of the BNP conference, so we have been distracted. We have recently installed a £35,000 fire alarm system, and under my guidance Mr and Mrs Metcalfe will run a pristinely clean, safe hotel that will be among the best in Blackpool."

Mr Kelly claimed the council had taken action against the hotel due to its hosting of the BNP conference. The council denied the claim.

The hotel will have 21 days to appeal against the decision, after which time it will no longer be able to sell alcohol, or provide entertainment .

Birmingham: pressure on to repeat Luton EDL ban

14 Comment (s)

Police urged to ban far right rally in Birmingham

West Midlands Police have been urged to step in and ban a far right group from holding a march in Birmingham next month to avoid a repeat of the shocking scenes of violence witnessed earlier this month.

White nationalist organisation The English Defence League (EDL) and an associated group, Casuals United, are due to hold a rally against Islamic extremism in the city on September 5. Their first demonstration on August 8 ended with violence and bloodshed as supporters clashed with anti-racism campaigners.

One of those calling for a ban was Respect councillor Salma Yaqoob, who expected more street violence if EDL returned.

“When it comes to public safety we have every right to intervene,” she said. “But the ‘just stay away’ message we are hearing won’t wash with today’s Muslim youngsters who won’t put their heads down and carry on walking when they are subjected to racist taunts – they will react and fight back.”

Yesterday, those at a public meeting to discuss how the city should deal with the group’s next visit voted unanimously that the police should have the demonstration banned. West Midlands Police were urged to join forces with Birmingham City Council to apply to the Home Secretary for a banning order under the Public Order Act.

Luton is one of the places which has banned the EDL and other right-wing groups from holding marches for three months to avoid violence.

But a senior police officer said there were no current plans to do so as the EDL had a legitimate right to hold its march.

The Birmingham rally saw 35 people arrested, and running battles between protesters and police in riot gear in Victoria Square and New Street.

Chief Insp Adrian Atherley, head of West Midlands Police’s diversity and community cohesion unit, told yesterday’s meeting how both groups involved, the EDL and the Anti Facist League, acted within the law and the problem lay with their supporters.

“The people fighting were Brummies fighting each other. Why? Because they had been wound up and provoked by the groups who had left by then,” he said.

He said to obtain a ban they would have to jump through numerous legal and bureaucratic hoops. “We have considered it, but section 13 of the Public Order Act is very specific about marches,” he said. “In Birmingham the situation is very different to Luton where the Chief Constable felt he could not police that event. We did not lose control on August 8 , there were no major injuries or damage, and in terms of disorder there was no loss of control.”

He added: “Obtaining a section 13 ban requires the Chief Constable to go to the local authority to say in the event of a march I cannot police the streets and the local authority has to apply to the Home Secretary.”

But he said their decision was constantly reviewed and he would feed back comments to the Chief Constable.

Also at the meeting was Birmingham councillor Judy Foster, vice-chairman of the West Midlands Police Authority, who said she would be raising the issue of a ban during a meeting with the Chief Constable Chris Sims today.

Ban call for anti Muslim march

Birmingham politicians and community activists are calling on West Midlands police to ban next month’s planned protest against “militant Islam” in the city – following the example set by their counterparts in Luton.

The last demo organised by the English and Welsh League on August 8 erupted into violence when the far-right group encountered resistance from supporters of Unite Against Fascism, leading to 33 arrests.

Concerned Brummie Waseem Zaffar called a public meeting at the Council House yesterday to discuss an appropriate response to the EDL’s planned return to the city on September 5.

The gathering of around 80 people unanimously called on police to halt the protest on the grounds that it jeopardised public safety. It was noted that police in Luton have responded to a proposed EDL “event” in September by cancelling all marches in the town for three months.

Chief Inspector Adrian Atherley, of West Midlands Police Diversity and Community Cohesion Unit argued that the Birmingham demonstration couldn’t be treated in the same way. He said that while marches can be banned, the right to protest is enshrined in law.

Yardley Liberal Democrat MP John Hemming, who was at the meeting, was unimpressed, and reckons the law can be used "creatively" to impose a ban.

He said: “What happened on August 8 was unforgiveable. However, it seems quite clear that the EDL are a bunch of football hooligans coming to incite people to violence. They can’t be allowed to continue to do that. Once you get to the stage where people are going at something to deliberately wind other people up, that’s not on – and that’s their objective.”

He was backed by Perry Barr MP Khalid Mahmood who said: “ I agree with the sentiment of the meeting. These people came to deliberately incite, and it’s the taxpayers of the West Midlands and Birmingham who are having to pay for it. That money would be better spent on my constituents.”

Others present included Respect Party leader Salma Yaqoob, Dudley councillor Judy Foster, the Vice Chair of the Police Authority; likewise representatives of Unite Against Fascism, musician Apache Indian and Stirrer editor Adrian Goldberg.

We’ve contacted The English Defence League and will publish their response when we have it.

The meeting also unanimously backed The Stirrer's Birmingham United campaign.

Angel-faced racist aged 12 - Girl burns golly at BNP's Red, White and Blue

110 Comment (s)

A little girl grins with glee as she holds a golly over a fire . . . while a jeering BNP politician finds the doll guilty of BEING BLACK during a vile mock trial and execution. The baying crowd cheers when the toy - dubbed Winston - is condemned and dropped on to the flames to "die". Goading on the assembled adults and kids, the politician, a local council candidate, yells out these chilling words: "Let's get a real one . . . in the town we'll find one or two."

The sickening stunt was staged at the British National Party's annual FAMILY festival last weekend - yet the BNP insists it is NOT racist as part of its successful ploy to attract votes in elections. Around 1,200 members converged on fields at Codnor, Derbys, for the Red White and Blue "fun" weekend. Our undercover reporter, posing as a supporter to gain entry to the members-only event, secretly filmed racism everywhere.

For £1 a go, people were throwing wet sponges at a man in a Barack Obama mask locked in stocks. Elsewhere stalls were selling T-shirts with slogans like It's A White Thing and books such as Race, Evolution and Behavior - which insists whites give birth to larger-brained babies and blacks are prone to crime. Supporters gave Nazi-style salutes and shouted Sieg Heil.

And in the "political tent", party chairman and MEP Nick Griffin, 50, was setting out how his party would deal with proposed anti-discrimination laws forcing the BNP to change its whites-only membership policy. He said: "Since if we want to survive we will be forced to let them in, the key will be before we do so to change the party - to ensure that whoever's coming in doesn't have any control."

Saturday night was the climax of the festival - and when the vileness reached its peak. Firstly, around 50 skinheads took part in a PAGAN ceremony to summon occult powers for their cause. They chanted incantations as they passed around and drank from an animal horn filled wth mead.

Two hours later, local council candidates John Coombes, of Maidenhead, Berks, and Dick Hamilton of Marlow, Bucks, were sitting with others around a brazier. Hamilton's ghettoblaster blared out songs supporting Hitler and attacking "niggers". Then began the "trial" led by Coombes, 45.

A 12-year-old girl there with her dad (we are protecting her identity) held a golly called Winston over the fire as Coombes "charged" him with "mugging, rape, drug dealing". He sneered: "Right Winston, you're about to get cooked. Anything else to say? Says he ain't a drug dealer. He thinks he's not black. He's charged with being black. Now get on there."

Skinhead Hamilton chipped in: "If he jumps off he's innocent." Coombes went on: "He's guilty, guilty as charged. Let's get a real one - in the town we'll find one or two. They'll also be guilty of the heinous crimes I charged him with - may God forgive your horrible soul." Coombes repeated the charges then added: "He may have appeared innocent to you lot but I'm sure he done lots of things wrong."

During the weekend the party's other MEP Andrew Brons used his stint in the political tent to compare Muslims to SMALLPOX during his speech. He declared: "I'm less concerned about the presence of mosques than the presence of the people that use them. Being worried about the presence of a particular mosque is almost like looking at a disease like smallpox and saying it's a problem with spots."

Ex-BNP cultural officer Jonathan Bowden, 47, also attacked Islam, and dubbed Jewish Israel as "cancer". He bleated: "The only way this (Muslim) problem will be solved is if they go back - go back to their civilisation. (But) we must renounce support for Israel. Israel is the cancer that lies at the heart of much of this."

And Greater London Authority member Richard Barnbrook joked about BLACKING himself up. The deputy opposition leader of Barking and Dagenham council boasted: "I've got balls made of steel. In my own ward, if I go around naked, and put boot polish on my face, they'd still love me."

In the evenings, supporters sat round campfires venting hate. During one chat, Stockport area organiser Duncan Warner explained to our reporter in sick twisted logic why using the word "Paki" was OK.

"Paki means pure. So why do you get offended when all that they're doing is calling you pure?" he whined. "You get called a Paki, how can you get offended by that?"

Elsewhere party supporter Danny Marshall, of Cotmanhay, Derbys, and his girlfriend Bev boasted of using intimidation tactics to rid the village of foreigners who'd moved there. Bev said: "Where I live is National Front. It's BNP. There's this black family that's just moved in from Nigeria. An hour later they were out...They were coming to nick our jobs. They had an hour to get out of their premises - from us people, ourselves."

Marshall said: "The Lithuanians and Czechs are sneaking in because they're white. You find the fuckers on the doorstep."

Bev added: "These guys from Poland came into Cotmanhay and did a car wash. Somebody wrote BNP on their sign - once that was there they were gone...guess who that was? Me and Danny. I wrote BNP."

Elsewhere another man moaned: "If things don't become any better, and I become older, so I'm 70 or 75, I'll take a GPMG (machine gun) - seriously, I'm not joking here - and I'm going to fucking destroy lots of people.

On one occasion shouts of "Reds, reds" broke out. BNP members grabbed hammers and axes then charged to the perimeter fence. A lone anti-facism protester trying to get into the festival was stopped by police before the thugs got to him.

During the weekend police arrested 19 of the protesters outside - and one BNP member. Meanwhile, half an hour after the sick golly burning the BNP's London organiser Bob Bailey arrived. With him was Griffin - who stated last October "the BNP is not racist". Together they warmed themselves on the embers.

BNP student imported knuckle-dusters

Tightrope - violently white supremacist
A City music student with an interest in far-right political groups illegally imported knuckledusters and CS spray from a member of a white supremacist movement in America. Michael Winfield planned to add the prohibited items to a collection kept under his bed.

Customs and Excise officers in Manchester intercepted a parcel from a prominent member of Tightrope to Winfield, a New College Nottingham student, who lives with his mum in Carlton. Marked as "books and paperweights", the package contained three 14g CS spray key-rings and four knuckledusters, bought for as little as $15 each.

Eight neo-Nazi booklets were discovered, two Tightrope catalogues and a booklet called The True History of the Holocaust.

The seizure led police to search the family home on December 3, 2007. A similar CS spray was found in Winfield's bedroom, two more knuckledusters, an extendable baton, a BNP membership card and 49 BNP pamphlets. His computer had images of neo-Nazis and weaponry and a photograph of 20-year-old Winfield in front of a flag, brandishing a weapon.

He ordered another package while on bail, again intercepted. It contained a telescopic baton, 13 stickers with racist slogans, and two T-shirts bearing the slogan "White Pride Worldwide."

At Nottingham Crown Court, Winfield, who had no previous convictions, pleaded guilty to importing prohibited items and possessing a prohibited weapon. Recorder Richard Burns heard Winfield's explanation for the collection was simple curiosity, and that he was going to add them to his collection in his bedroom.

Prosecutor Michael Auty said: "There is no evidence that these items, however repugnant, were being imported for some specific purpose or some specific attack."

The judge imposed a 12-month sentence, suspended for 18 months, with 120 hours of community work and supervision by the probation service for 18 months.

Rightwing march ban over fear of violence

Masked-up and ready to riot - the English defence League
Rightwing groups have been banned from holding marches in Luton for three months in an attempt to prevent a repeat of the violence that has marred similar demonstrations across the country.

The English Defence League, which has been involved in violent clashes in Birmingham and Luton this year, had planned to hold a series of demonstrations against "Islamic extremism" over the coming weeks.

Anti-racism campaigners said the events were intended to whip up tension and more than 14,000 people had written to Alan Johnson, the home secretary, demanding action. Today police confirmed the Home Office had granted a banning order.

Nick Lowles of the Hope not Hate campaign said: "Our voices have been heard. Luton is a safer place because of it. This is just further proof of what we can achieve when we get organised."

Luton has seen a number of violent protests this year. In March a small group of Muslims staged a demonstration during a homecoming parade for soldiers from the Royal Anglian Regiment. Tonight Bedfordshire police charged seven men in connection with the incident. They will appear at Luton magistrates court on 16 September.

The March demonstration was followed by counter-demonstrations which led to Asian businesses and residents being attacked. In Birmingham this month members of the English Defence League and linked group Casuals United clashed with anti-racism campaigners, resulting in 34 arrests and one injury.

Bedfordshire police today said there had been growing concern about planned demonstrations by rightwing groups that had prompted a "robust unified response" by the police and the council. Chief Superintendent Andy Frost, divisional commander for Luton police, said: "The risk the proposed marches pose to public safety has left us with no alternative but to apply for a banning order."

Weyman Bennett, the joint secretary of Unite Against Fascism, welcomed the ban. "What we have proved is that where we, as a multiracial group, organise and stand up the EDL can be defeated."

The league denies it is racist, claiming it would march "alongside Muslims and Jews who are against militant Islam".

The announcement of the ban came as a man and a woman were charged under the Data Protection Act after a British National party (BNP) membership list was leaked on to the internet. Dyfed-Powys police said the man, aged 27, and woman, 30, were due to appear at Nottingham magistrates court on 1 September. The BNP called for a police investigation last November after the details of 10,000 of its members were published online.
