Griffin accused of subverting BNP constitution

The national organiser of the British National Party is trying to stop any leadership election from taking place by rewriting the party’s constitution, according to Eddy Butler, the leadership challenger.

In the latest BNP “e-organisers’ bulletin”, Clive Jefferson, who acts as the BNP leader’s tame poodle, states that signatures in support of a leadership contender must be submitted on an “official form”, which he will not make available until 13 July. Challengers have until 10 August to gather the support of 20% of the 4,200 party members with two years’ continuous membership and 20% of the elite “voting members”, of whom there are only 278 nationally.

Butler says (correctly) there is no provision in the constitution for an “official” form or for a nomination period in which signatures have to be collected, only a set period (20 July to 10 August) in which they can be delivered. He believes Jefferson’s “totally unconstitutional move” is intended to prevent any potential candidate from having time to obtain all the required signatures.

Jefferson has also ordered people to send their nominations individually to the party. “The collection of these nomination papers by a third party acting on behalf of a potential nominee is not allowed and will invalidate that nomination paper,” he declares.

Butler says he will ignore Jefferson’s instructions. He and his supporters are already gathering signatures on a form that he has devised himself and intend to hand the nominations in together.

Jefferson goes on to “caution any member from making unsubstantiated defamatory allegations, just because a member attempts to gain the nominations to start a leadership challenge”. Butler asks: “Is he having attacks of remorse for the fake brothel film [a film that Jefferson shot that purports to show Butler in a Belgian brothel]? Is he going to expel himself?”

Butler has no doubt who is responsible for all the dirty tricks, the so-called attack blogs and “the little acts of petty spite, snide digs or other acts of outright political gangsterism”. Nick Griffin gave himself dictatorial power in the constitution he foisted on the party, so “when ‘things’ happen in support of his failing regime the buck stops with him, Butler asserts.

Griffin is also responsible for the letter distributed to neighbours of Simon Bennett, the BNP’s former webmaster, accusing him of theft, drug abuse, forgery, blackmail, etc, says Butler, describing it as “an indescribably filthy and scummy act”.

The attempts by Griffin and Jefferson to do whatever it takes to stop Butler are likely to end up in court, with the beneficial result that party members’ donations will be wasted on yet more huge legal bills.

Unplugged from the matrix:

Its just been posted on BDC about Jefferson getting in trouble in a Blackpool lap dancing bar last year during the conference.
He was with James Clayton[Blackpool organiser and NW deputy regional organiser].
I wonder if he Filmed James Clayton. Just in case he needs to bring him down as well

Damn. I've run out of popcorn again.

I don't mean to sound racist but...
...only the British produce a quality farce.

"Butler has no doubt who is responsible for all the dirty tricks"

The irony is that Bulter was one of the main instigators of the gangsterism and dirty tricks when he was at the top-table.

Kinda reminds me of all those old Russian Revolutionaries who nurtured and defended the system in the early 20's and then had that same set-up turn against them later on.

Agree with this and a good lawyer will have an interesting time looking into the BNP's books if allegations of financial fraud are made.

Am surprised to learn that our Denise is bestest friends with Sharon Ebanks, well according to Butler exposed.

The are scratching their heads...ooppps boys watch out for the splinters, wondering how Lancaster Unity is getting so much up to date information.

They are of course convinced that Denise has buried Ketlan under the patio and has taken over the site following instructions from her handlers at MI5 and 6.

Of course we all know how splendid our Denise and Ketlan are but even they do rely on others.

And if the stupid bastards had bothered to read to the bottom of the postings they would find that they come from a great range of authors.

In fact I would bet money that if we were to add up the followers on here and how it has grown over the years we have probably got a bigger true membership than BNP and Griffin.

keep it up all

:-)

Ketlan will be back shortly - he's taking a little necessary time out.

Landale said...

Blimey, that's the third or fourth time Denise has buried Ketlan under the patio - I hope he's got it comfortably fitted out :-)

That the fasch are so concerned about LU is a mark of respect - even be it from a source that we very much disagree with - that they realise the error of their ways but can't see it - yet!

May be they are all very close to abandoning the Gri££in and reducing him and to who ever follows to billy no mates! I really hope so!!

I realise Ketlan is not below the patio, would Denise ever do that?!! ;-) and my best regards to Ketlan in his time out.

Denise said...

In fairness, only one of the articles highlighted was an original LU article, the other three being reposts from Searchlight/HOPE not hate.

If Sonia G has already covered something and we can't improve on it, we may as well use that and link back to SL/HNH to drive traffic to them. Also there's the shoulder thing...

"also there's the shoulder thing"

If you spent less time burying Ketlan under the patio your shoulder would have time to recover Denise.


[Sorry - not really trivialising frozen shoulders. Had one myself. Not nice.]

What next?

All nominations must be written on a block of solid gold, using ink made from the blood of Ascension Island virgins and hand-delivered on Tuesday mornings (in a month with a y in their name) to an office in Vladivostok.

The BNP - the truly democratic party (copyright Griffin 2008).

Fascist parties despise mock and hate democracy. They believe wholeheartedly in 'strong leaders'
It is amazing that elements of the BNP membership believe it to be otherwise and put their hands up in horror at the antics of their 'fuehrer' sorry 'leader!'. It has been spelt out to them often enough, but of course that was all a LU/Searchlight/ Marxist/ New Labour/ Lib Con conspiracy -(delete as appropriate).
Gri££in whilst being a buffoon (and a very nasty piece of work amongst many other things) is smarter than them. It is good to see them tearing themselves apart and they still honestly believe they are Britain's fourth political party!
Dream on!!

Who The Hell does Jefferson think he is he as only been a member of the bnp for 2 years! Very Glad that his bed chum Simon Darby or should i say SLIMEY DARBY has gone as deputy dog because he would have been sacked along with Jefferson after the COUP!!!!

Effing BRILLIANT - SPOT ON (but don't give him too many ideas - eg the flashing RED sign).

A wishlist might be a nice idea. I remember he spent his first donation on a kettle.

Just shows the paucity of talent inside the BNP that somebody can only be in for 2 years and be able to reach the top tier.

Good news for any would-be Searchlight mole. Be keen, show aptitude and brown-nose Griffin for a mere two years and you could be pulling the strings!
