Local Elections 2011 Live Blog

The election counts around the country are taking place over the next 24 hours and as usual Lancaster Unity will be live blogging the results until t
he early hours of the morning and during the day tomorrow.


10.20 PM - HnH are reporting that BNP members stormed a Polling Station in Thurrock, egged Labour Party members including somebody in a wheelchair and stopped people from voting.

11.30 PM - It looks like the count in Stoke is going badly wrong for the BNP in the Meir Wards. Possibility of Coleman losing his seat.

12.25 AM from HnH - First result of the evening. The BNP vote has collapsed in the Nuneaton and Bedworth by-election of Barpool, a ward where the BNP already has one councillor. Labour has won the ward with 50% of the vote.
Lab 1034 Cons 519 BNP 204 Lib Dem 142 UKIP 65 SP 38

12.55 AM - Steve Baktin has lost in Bentilee and Ubberley, Stoke-on-Trent.
One down plenty more to go.

1.10 AM BNP lose ALL 4 councillors they had in Stoke.

Well done to this lot who have worked tirelessly in Stoke over the last few weeks and months and have managed to rid the place of the BNP Councillors. This was described as the BNP's jewel in the crown this time last year when they launched their manifesto. After consulting an A&E Triage nurse, they recommend a few pints and a curry as a relief to aching feet.

2.00 AM - From Griffins Twitter feed "Combination of swing to Labour and their superb machine has wiped us out in Stoke. We'll be back."
Ha.

2.30 AM - From HnH It seems that Peter Tierney has achieved the lowest ever BNP vote on Merseyside, polling a fantastic 44 votes. One for promotion I think.

3.10 AM - Sheffield remains BNP free with Jordan Pont coming 4th and John Beatson coming 6th.

There's been trouble in Thurrock. Mixed EDL and BNP mob stormed a polling station and attacked people.

Lets hope so.

"There's been trouble in Thurrock. Mixed EDL and BNP mob stormed a polling station and attacked people".

Fascists can't bloody take it when they lose.

Typical nazi behaviour from the neo-Nazis of the EDL and the BNP.

When they lose at the Ballot box, they storm the streets with their boots and fists.

Can only speak for my own borough, I'm told that our teller returns are a pretty uniform 30%-ish. No BNP here, fortunately.

turnout, that is

Nick Lowles:

Ok, it seems that the ballot box theft story (at Thurrock) is not correct but BNP members did storm a polling station, throw eggs at Labour Party members, including someone in a wheelchair, and then block people from voting.

More to follow....

It looks like Griffin will have no choice but to close down the Thurrock Branch if news of this spreads.

I wonder what sort of damage the Thurrock lot will do at the count.

Utter scum the lot of them. HOPEfully tonight will be another nail in their coffin.

Hello Denise, good to have you back.

Good evening John.

Message to John P - Libs in free fall in Sheffield 12 or 13 seats down by the looks of it.

Wonder how the BNP will explain away the dismay results?

Ethnic minority counters discarding BNP ballots?

Ballot boxes being spirited away by Mossad agents and BNP ballots destroyed and replaced?

Will there be a tirade of abuse directed at the British Electorate for having the gall not to vote for them?

or finally Eddy Butler?

Any idea what time the results will be in?

Do you remember when the BNP described themselves as a HARD GREEN party a few years ago in one of their manifestos?

Griffin: "Greens seem to be picking up more than usual. On back of Japanese earthquake I guess."

That should read: "Yeah, that fucking Tsunami - Obviously a devious ZOG plot to deny the BNP seats in Wales!"

I have to go to bed - been up for last 22 hours and have to be at local count at 9am.

From the HopenotHate blog:

"Gary Lucas, defeated BNP candidate in Knowsley always has an interesting comment or two to make on his facebook page. He's not let us down tonight/this morning either: "Ballot box [is] not the answer in this country any more" he writes angrily."

Sore losers, eh?!

All the 19 BNP canididates in Barnsley got trounced. They got a handful of second places but in percentage terms they were all well down. Votes varied between 100 and 450 and seem to have averaged about 250, far short of the finishing line. The English Democrats got 290 in their only ward.

Please post this story up on LU, it's very important -

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/may/05/spanish-civil-war-bodies-removed-mass-grave

Most people in the UK are aware that 30,000 people "disappeared" (were tortured and murdered) under Argentine Fascism, few people seem to be aware that on our own continent things were far worse. The figure quoted by The Guardian is 120,000, and some of the killers are still alive

"But held (the only) 1 in Rotherham".

That's because his term of office doesn't expire until next year so he didn't face election. A BNP candidate contesting another seat in his ward failed to get elected. The BBC reported this wrongly.

I totally agree and I'm sure we could include the Pinochet regime in Chile amongst others in recentish history.
I'll put it up later after the election stuff is sorted.

The BNP managed over 500 votes in 3 wards across Doncaster and Rotherham but were still nowhere near winning. One of the Doncaster candidates, John Betteney, stood in Barnsley last year.

When is the funeral of the BNP? I'd like to pay my disrespects to the deceased party.

Typo - I think you mean diseased party.......

In a moment of boredom, here are some useless but true facts about the English local elections....

BNP votes: 73,000

Average % in wards: 7.8%

They came last in 46% of contested seats.

They came last or second to last in 72% of contested seats.

They came first in just under 1% of contested seats.


Still work to do, but nicely disappearing up their own arseholes.

Griffo's initial reaction, from their webshite:

"...it is absolutely essential that we develop entirely new, non-electoral tactics through which to oppose attacks on our community and our people’s freedom and identity. We need, and are going to find, fresh ways to keep us in the public eye as fighters and winners"

Loser!

Check Kieran Trent, with a roaring "death-metal" sountrack, claiming to be leading "the resistance" - it's a good job Churchill ain't around right now to spank his arse.

The website address of the young Nazis he gives at the end of the clip doesn't appear to exist :))

"Check Kieran Trent, with a roaring "death-metal" sountrack,"

I beg to differ, that soundtrack is clearly some kind of loose industrial rock remix, maybe a bedroom one as the quality of the drum sound production leaves a lot to be desired (although this could well be intentional).

Might be worth trying to find out who the artist is - they may be unaware that racists are using their song.

Good news.

However, it is not over yet and so we must carry on.
