In response to the many smears coming from the Griffin camp, the challenger Andrew Brons has complained to the leadership election officer Geoff Dickens, a Griffin loyalist. Quite why Brons expects Dickens to play fair is beyond me, but that's bizarre BNP-style democracy for you.
Now a new player has entered the field, who has allegedly sent a printed magazine out to all the current BNP members who are eligible to vote in the leadership election. The magazine is entitled 'A Report on the Mismanagement of the BNP' and can be read online here or is available in PDF form, should you care to download it and have a peruse, here. Brons and his minions deny that it is anything to do with them.
The magazine is a mish-mash of facts and hearsay, with a couple of obvious mistakes thrown in to confuse anyone who is attempting to track down the creator(s). Its interest for us is that it repeats many of the accusations that every anti-fascist has been making for years - that Griffin is a lying crook, that he surrounds himself with deviants, thugs and other lying crooks and that the BNP is near-bankrupt to a degree that, if it were a company, its directors would be jailed for trading while insolvent. There is, unsurprisingly, much talk of missing money.
You've read most of it before, but it's a bit of a laugh to look through and as you read it, reflect that Porky Griffin will be apoplectic with fury at the content while serial liar Patsy Harrington will be threatening to sue everyone in the universe - his usual behaviour when cornered.
Whodunnit? Possibly Paul Golding and James Dowson, former Griffin allies. That's only a guess though and if you have a better one, feel free to post it in the comments section. :-)
