Midlands BNP officers speak at German neo-Nazi rally

A British National Party regional officer spoke at a nazi festival in east Germany last month alongside violent fascists and extremists from several European countries.

Mike Bell, secretary of the party’s West Midlands region, attended the Fest der Völker (Festival of Nations) in Pössneck, Thüringen, with three other BNP activists. They included Dave and Nina Brown from Nottinghamshire, who were taking time out from campaigning for a Broxtowe District Council by-election on 24 September, where Mr Brown was the BNP candidate.

Their presence at the event on 12 September proves once again that the BNP’s rejection of nazism is only skin deep. Leading racist extremists from across Europe spoke alongside Bell and Mrs Brown at the far-right rock festival. They included Dan Eriksson and Varenus Luckmann from Sweden, Andreas Mayerhofer from Austria, Matthias Fischer from Germany, Bojan Rasate from Bulgaria, Pascal Trost from Switzerland, Milán Széth from Hungary and Patrik Vondral from the Czech Republic.

Behind them on the platform was a banner depicting two steel-helmeted soldiers of the German army and bearing the clapped-out fascist slogan “Europe Awake!”. In front of them was a mob of around 500 nazi boneheads, misfits and sociopaths.

Four BNP activists are known to have attended, two of whom were featured speakers.

Nina Brown is the organiser of Broxtowe BNP and a Brinsley parish councillor. Though now loyal to Nick Griffin, the BNP leader, she was one of the original “Voice of Change” rebels in December 2007, led by Sadie Graham, at that time her best friend.

It was Brown who let Griffin’s security team into Graham’s house to remove the disputed computer equipment. She immediately resigned as Broxtowe organiser and East Midlands regional secretary when it became apparent that she had been duped by Martin Reynolds and his security team.

Brown wrote a statement of resignation on the rebels’ Enough is Enough website. However, following the collapse of the attempted coup d’état she quickly fell back into the fold and is now very much “on message”.

Husband of Nina and also a Brinsley parish councillor, Dave Brown was the BNP candidate for the Broxtowe District Council by-election in Toton and Chilwell Meadows ward on 24 September, caused by the resignation due to ill health of the Conservative councillor Wilfred Childs.

Brown, a plumber, was also one of the “Voice of Change” rebels, but like his wife quickly got back in line when the whole charade fell apart. Both he and his wife are thought to be close to the neo-nazi musician Steve “Stigger” Callendine, formerly a member of the notorious white supremacist band Skrewdriver.

Originally from the Merseyside area Mike Bell now lives in the Northfield area of Birmingham and is the BNP’s West Midlands regional secretary. Until recently he was the organiser of the BNP’s South Birmingham branch, which he claims can hold meetings of over 200 people.

Bell has the status of a minor celebrity in the party as he recently managed to ask a question from the audience on the BBC’s Question Time.

His presence on the platform of a nazi rally in Germany might come as a shock to those who have encountered him selling poppies on behalf of the British Legion and laying wreaths to commemorate those who fell fighting the Nazis on Remembrance Day. Bell attended the Fest der Völker with another unidentified BNP activist from the Birmingham area.

I wander if the Royal British Legion have been made aware that Bell the poppy seller is on the side of Adolf Hitler and not the British troops???

Someone got the email address of the RBL?

Mike Bell, secretary of the party’s West Midlands region ?

Thats like making Katie Price chancellor of the exchequer.I knew the West Midlands were in a desperate state,but i didnt know it was that bad.

Landale said...

These guys are unreal, and you couldn't make it up.....

Unless they are particularly thick, you'd have thought they would have realised, given that they are often accused of being Nazis, that they would have realised that attending such an event was unwise.

The same could be said of Darby and the event he attended earlier this year.

So yes they are particularly thick!! willingly providing the evidence they are Nazis!!!


I suppose we should thank them for leaving us in no doubt about their real beliefs!!! and providing the evidence to use against them :-)

Very Well Done Finding This! These photos must be published in every newspaper and magazine in Britian?

Brummie said...

From what I've seen of Bell, he's quite a say one thing and do another kind of person. His Facebook page doesn't tell of a very pleasant character and the most scariest thing! He lives in Northfield, just the next suburb from me in Longbridge:-(

Brummie said...

That picture needs to be emailed to the RBL as soon as possible before Bell can get away with selling his poppies outside the Grosvenor centre in Northfield this November.

''So yes they are particularly thick!! willingly providing the evidence they are Nazis!!!''

Not really, has this ever bothered them before? You can keep throwing this stuff but none of it will stick, apart from with the people that already know this stuff.... i.e. you/ us.

You could put this on every bill board in the country, and it would mean nothing to anyone. Unless you are already engaged in giving a shit about the BNP - and MOST people don't - then why would it matter. The people who have voted for them have already made that leap of 'faith'. Perhaps they don't even read papers anyway, or think it's all lies and rubbish. Alot of them could be bonkers anyway. And, frankly, maybe the BNP has helped them in some way or other, or at least given the impression that they 'care'.

What the BNP get by on - and I think most people are aware of this now - is their 'radical' edge or maybe a better way of putting this would be their 'persecution complex'. We are 'put upon', 'slandered', denied 'freedom of speech' etc...

Until you propose a radical alternative, and stop coming over as defenders of the status quo, or 'establishment' NOTHING will ever change.

I'm not saying we shouldn't expose these massive bloopers or their part, but there value seems very limited these days.....

Notice the t-shirt the unknown activist is wearing?

Jamie The Antifascist said...

This is disgusting that the only way this story exists is through antifascist blogs, why isn't this in any of the major newspapers? I recall the news of the world having a field day with the story of the girl burning that golli***
at the fash fest, as much as this is evidential proof that the BNP are still the jack-boot wearing morons they that started out from, unfortunatly no-one else will see this, apart from us...

Political correctness cuts both ways. The BNP are a bunch of racist fascist retards who live in the past and are led by a convicted race hater and history twister - and with Adolf Hitler as their spiritual leader. And I say that in the most politically incorrect of ways!!

Leave Sharon Ebanks to sort out old Ding-Dong!

"Notice the t-shirt the unknown activist is wearing?"

Zoomed in as much as I can, can't make the logo out at all. Wouldn't be suprised if it bears the slogan saying: "Proud to be British" or "British jobs for British workers"

with of course the T-shirt being made in Honduras...

Brummie said...

Indeed it's about time we gave the BNP a taste of their own medicine on the issue of political correctness.

The T Shirt is a Great White Records T Shirt.

Does anyone know who he is?

These people are so fucking stupid. The bnp is supposedly a party with pretensions of respectabilty & the mainstream at yet are seen hobnobbing with a bunch of hardcore neo nazis. Cretins.

I wonder whether Griffin will discipline them? I would be a good opportunity to purge a group of midranking officials with suspect loyalty?

Gtm

the ex-skinny controller said...

The BNP is really fucked, think about it for a minute - The previous organiser for that area was polished, professional and a real threat to the status quo. She was 'purged' and replaced by far lower quality people by Gr££in; why?
The BNP is kept down by him and he gets rewarded, like for example with a very well paid position in Europe.

Anti-fascists will almost certainly now see a rise in British militant fascism I expect, but politically it has already been ‘dealt with’. Without the later being fully controlled, the former CANNOT be controlled. The state work to this.

The next time that Brown stands in election, print that picture on leaflets and deliver them across the whole ward. That'll be her campaign finnished - I'm sure the local media would like some info also.
You fucked-up big time, Nina!!!!!

I see Ms graham is still commenting on here lol talk about blow your own trumpet - it was all she was good for

the ex-skinny contoller said...

Sorry to disappoint but I’m not Graham - she fucked-up also. The fact is she was very good and this is the reason I'm glad she is history and likely to stay that way. The botton line is the bnp is made up from sub-standard stuff and the article sums it up really well.

its ecky thump aka mike bell.

Denise will know.Didnt he invite Adrian Goldberg,the stirrer to a meeting in Northfield and $imon darby went mad ? it seems everything ecky does is a cock up.i nearly wet myself the other night looking at one of their forums even his own members are now calling him " Mr Magoo"

Anonymous said...

Does Bell believe his street cred will be enhanced in any way by having his photo taken with a beer in his left hand and what looks like a significantly blown-up replica of Mark Collett's phallus in the other?

Inchworm said...

LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

A joke: - What's the connection between Mark Collett and a thimble?

Answer: - The thimble protects you from a little prick!

In all honesty this stuff needs to be given to the papers a few days before any local or national election, if it hits the papers now everyone will have forgotten about it by election time, never the less good work for exposing the Nazis, the other guy in the picture looks like Eddy Butler? also like previously said the picturesneeds to be put on anti BNP flyers to be distributed before any local or general election,

We know this, but due to the short notice we couldn't get it in the locals in time for the by election.
