BNP Councillor Resigns

A BNP councillor has ended his three-year association with the far right party claiming it is corrupt and led by a Nazi dictator.

Simon Deacon, BNP councillor for Markyate, took the decision to resign saying he could no longer support the party's leader Nick Griffin, who he branded a 'Nazi dictator'.

Councillor Deacon, who will now stand on Markyate parish council as an independent, told the Review: "There are a lot of people who are not happy with the way the party is being run by Nick Griffin.

"Anybody that has been outspoken and criticised him have found themselves suspended. I feel with the way people are being treated within the party I couldn't support Nick Griffin any longer. I couldn't vote for that party at the moment - not the way Nick Griffin is running the BNP.

"If he's going to suspend his own people as soon as they speak badly of him, then how could you trust him as Prime Minister? We (BNP) have been labelled in the past as Nazis and facists and I feel at the moment that label is correct.

"I'm not a fascist or a Nazi and I don't want to be associated with them. I agree with the BNP's policies, it's just the people that are implementing them."

Councillor Deacon joined the National Front in 1992 before jumping ship to the BNP three years ago. He added: "My loyalty is to my country, not a political party - I have always made that perfectly clear.

"When I joined the party the BNP was the only hope left for this country now I feel there's no hope."

No martyr - just an unpleasent individual who supports the policy of the British Nonces Party, and who does not like the current leadership.

I didn't think parish councillors were affiliated to any party?

BNP did not contest yesterday's by election in Bloxwich West ward in Walsall. They polled 722 votes there (8.8%) in May.

Good news!

I see Gri££in is crowing on nutzie central, trying to pacify the sheeple about Dowson!

"It is not a game for well-meaning amateurs. It is not as simple as posting off a letter asking for donations...."

er....... what have you been doing with alarming regularity?

"Remember, to drop professional fundraising would drag the party back to where we were..."

And, one for Iliacus when inspecting the next set of accounts.... if they ever arrive before the party implodes.
"In 2009, under the stewardship of the Midas Consultancy, the party's donations income again exploded to unparalleled heights, rising from £662,217 in 2008 to a gargantuan £1.6 million! "

Blah, Blah, then he end it with > Lol>
"If you can help the British Resistance then please donate any amount to help us fend off the Equalities Commission legal attack on the party. Click here to send a small gift."

No Nick, "It is not as simple as posting off a letter asking for donations", lets have a donations button on everything I post up on the webshite!

"I'm not a fascist nor a Nazi"

Of course not - that's why you've spent nearly 20 years in fascist parties.

Parish councillors can be associated with political parties, but it generally only happens on a small minority of councils.

And nobody, apart from the BNP, tries to claim them as part of the party's local government strength.

Eh? What next? I support the holocaust but I just don't like the SS?

Old Sailor's right. Although watching the enemy tear chunks out of themselves is great fun, it's always worth reminding ourselves that there are no "Goodies" in this - They're all Baddies.

He must think he is in line to be chucked out as well, so he must be jumping first. People in his town should be allowed a by-election. Its one thing having a BNP idiot as a councillor but another having just an idiot as a councillor. He joined the national front in the nineties then the bnp three years ago and only just worked it out.
Isnt there an IQ test involved in being a councillor?

"They're all Baddies"

Yes, I just want the most incompetent and tarnished set of bad guys to emerge victorious out of all this. I hope it's Griffin and Dowson - we've got their number and better the devil you know.

'Geert Wilders to spread his anti-Muslim movement west

Wilders said he hopes to position the alliance between traditional conservative parties and far-right wing groups, saying that in Britain there is "an enormous gap" between the ruling Conservative party and the far-right BNP: "The BNP is a party that, whatever you think of it, it's not my party I think it's a racist party," he said.'

It looks like Wilders wants to keep Griffin out of his racist road show?

"Dutch Politician Forms Anti-Islam Coalition

Controversial Dutch politician Geert Wilders has said he is forming an international "freedom alliance" to amplify his anti-Muslim message across the West.

Mr Wilders will launch the movement later this year in five countries: the United States, Canada, France, Germany and Britain."

None of these morons ever look at the core principles of the BNP and think "Hang on a minute, some pretty nasty ideas there, I don't think I can support a British political party that is based on nurturing hatred and division between British people".
It's all ego and personality and hysteria and grudges and "Oooo, he's getting more out of this than I am!"
Prats, indeed.

Kev Scott has reminded me -

Wasn't 30th June the deadline for the BNP to lodge their 2009 Accounts with the Electoral Commission?

Don't tell me they're late !!!

Scarcely believe!!
