BNP 'hypocrites' over website merchandise

British jobs for British workers - unless they're cheaper somewhere else...
The BNP is selling T-shirts on its website which are made in Honduras despite claiming to back Brit jobs for British workers

The party’s merchandise website Excalibur sells clothes and gifts to raise cash to help support the party. Among the items is a T-shirt featuring an image of St George slaying the dragon. But despite claiming to promote patriotic issues, the T-shirt labels reveal that they are not even made in the UK.

Critics of the nationalist party have slammed them for being “hypocrites”. Alex Fraser, 42, of Rochdale, was shown the T-shirt by a friend. He said: “A friend bought it for £10 from the website. They’re blowing their own trumpet, saying: ‘British jobs for British workers.’ But it’s an absolute farce.”

The T-shirt also comes in Welsh versions but they have also been slammed by Welshmen who say the BNP is “hijacking” a Welsh legend.

Sculptor Colin Spofforth spent four years creating the 14ft statue of historic ruler Owain Glyndwr, which is used on the Welsh version of the T-shirt. He said: “I certainly did not give any permission for it to be used and I would never have done.”

BNP national treasurer John Walker said: “Whatever we do, someone will criticise us for it.”

An Excalibur spokesman said: “Unfortunately we have been unable to change Britain’s climate and start our own cotton plantations. Hence cotton T-shirt come from where cotton can be grown.”

And not somewhere like Lancashire or West Yorkshire where there are still plenty of Cotton mills.

Presumably the slaves working on the BNP plamtation would be black, Asian and Jewish, including British Muslims.

Anyone not picking cotton fast enough would be sent to the concentration camp!

Come on - all 122 BNP "intellectuals" have bought March of the Titans and Kemp's other books - give a man a gap he has to make his money somehow and it seems that this is the new moneyspinner for Excalibur.

Possibly he can now afford to pay child support!

Cotton has not been grown in Honduras since about the 1800's..... the article states 'made' in Honduras... ie sewn together. Now the British climate does allow for sewing machines.... just those money grabbing thugs dont want o pay British workers, British wages to do it.

This needs more publicity!!!

Once again the question arises - are the BNP English nationalists, Welsh nationalists, British nationalists, White nationalists... There is a difference between England and Britain!!!

I rather suspect as well as wishing to divide up Britain upon race and religious parameters, they also wish to put animosity between English people Welsh people and Scots people.

One final thing. I am a UK citizen by birth and a UK citizen by the grace of God and it would be so much better without the BNP!!!

Wonder what the BNP voters of Burnley, and other cotton and textile making towns in the North West will make of this?

Pete Green said...

Aren't there cotton mills all over the North-West, Griffin's own Euro-constituency?

I thought the climate quote was priceless. Another example of BNP historical knowledge.

Oh dear.

When God was handing out brains the BNP were at an EDL rally somewhere ...

But this is exactly what the nazzers believe in, they are imperialists after all. The British jobs slogan is pure opportunistic propaganda, and it's important to call them on it.

@ Jamie the Antifascist

A small correction, it was actually an old National Front slogan adopted by Brown!

His advisors should certainly have known better.

Never knew that!

Wonder what slogan Brown will be adopting next...really was an embarassing move by labour

Nothing particularly revelatory about this, do they still print 'the voice of freedom' in Slovakia ? Or are they using the Saudi owned firm in Essex (staffed largely by Muslims) again ?
