This afternoon, whilst watching the updates from the EDL demos in Preston and Nuneaton, I saw a thread on a forum claiming that Dowson was now working for the English Democrats.
I didn't really take too much notice but I did a quick check on the phone number to see if it was the same one that the BNP and Dowson used for their fundraising before the big fallout. It wasn't so I let it pass by.
About half an hour ago I went back and checked the thread again because even at first glance this afternoon, there just seemed to be far too many coincidences between the style of the English Democrats fundraising letter and the ones that the poor unfortunates on the BNPs mailing list received on an almost daily or hourly basis, judging by the complaints over the last couple of years. Anyway, somebody on that forum posted the ED's begging letter alongside a BNP begging letter as a comparison and I thought I would reproduce them here.
You will have to click the images to see them full size.
This is a begging letter sent out by Dowson on behalf of the BNP a few weeks/months ago
This is a begging letter sent out by the English Democrats sometime this month.
This is the slip to give a donation to the BNP
And this is a slip to give a donation to the English Democrats.
Now of course this might just be somebody in the English Democrats who has been mightily impressed by Dowsons fundraising and political skills which have helped the BNP to become 600k in debt and decided to copy them using the same sort of template, colours, style, layout and pretty much everything else.
Or could it be that Dowson has taken his cherished database to another right wing party and is about to pull off a similar deal to the one he had with the BNP?
