As I predicted, with the BNP in meltdown and a number of activists' going missing or into hiding, the BNP's press officer Simon Darby prefers to offer us on his blog pictures of his dinner instead of giving us a response as to the absolute mess the BNP is in internally.
My colleague Matthew tells me that all being well there should be another story about the BNP in the Northern Irish press this weekend, one that I admit has had us all highly amused. So good it is, that Simon Darby may well end up photographing himself stuffing a chicken before jumping into the oven with it!
Elsewhere, the BNP's North East regional organiser Cheryl Dunn who was arrested last week, is threatening to quit the party having "had enough" of the internal bickering and infighting, much of which it seems is being directed at her and her partner, the BNP's Youth Leader Kieren Trent. Most of this stems from the picture of her boyfriend giving the Nazi salute that leaked out last week. While she is bitterly defending him her former partner is languishing in prison allegedly as a result of an assault on Trent. Is it any wonder the party has done such little campaigning over the last week or so?
Trent, who we have written about here http://www.searchlightmagazine.com/index.php?link=template&story=347 was originally regarded as a future leader of the BNP, but to say his head has been turned of late would be an understatement. Cheryl seems to be taking a lot of the flack for not just that, but also her former partner's current predicament. If Dunn does keep her promise to quit that would be another huge headache for Griffin as she was just about the last Griffinite left in the region. He won't want to lose Dunn because as she writes, she wants the "white race to be preserved not inbred and ran by jews" (sic)
Not helping is that Trent has himself apparently announced that "Resistance" the BNP youth wing that he heads, is no longer aligned to any Nationalist party. As well as giving Nazi salutes, it looks like he is quite happy to pose in front of any old flag or poster. For someone so young, the "Young, Angry & White" Mr Trent has been in something like five different organisations’ already, including the National Front, British Movement and English National Resistance.
We are being sent so many pics and stories by disgruntled and fed up BNP members that our in boxes are overflowing. Some of these pictures are not fit for publication, such is the ire of scorned Nazis these days.
The fall out from the BNP's antics in Yorkshire on St George's day also continues. Former corrupt police officer Simon Goodricke who is supposed to be the regional organiser for Yorkshire is getting most of the criticism for the behaviour of his underlings. Being photographed with his trousers at his ankles while a number of the party's candidates posed with fake firearms has not endeared him to party leaders at all.
We're still working away here and will continue to do so right up until the polls close next week. Help us to keep the BNP out.
