Minutes of the Leicestershire BNP Meeting, 15th July, 2016

The Meeting was held in the Charnwood area. Geoff declared it open at 7:25pm. James, Mike R., Dave K. and Roger B. sent their apologies.
The Minutes of the last Meeting were read, agreed and signed off.

Geoff thanked all who went out during the Brexit campaign. Our work made a noticeable difference, the areas in the city showed that.


All financial accounts of the Party were 100% passed by the auditors; for the 5th consecutive year and we have enough funds locally available to contest four parliamentary seats if a snap general election is called.

We recently held a social, which everyone agreed was successful and very enjoyable. It is important we keep together. Geoff asked for candidates for any potential parliamentary election. Three people put their names forward.

Discussing Brexit, Steve commented that we must leave before April 2017 when the article of the Lisbon Treaty kicks in, requiring 14 EU members to approve it. Steve also said that he will leaflet monthly.
Discussed how UKIP overtook BNP's popularity and what we can do to counter this.

Lee gave a short talk in which he explained how the BNP had done the groundwork for Brexit over the years, leading up to the ascendancy of the Government/media approved UKIP. The latter split the right-wing vote as intended, but backfired as Cameron was scared into offering a Referendum. Lee told us of his team's excellent work in Thurncourt, leading to Leicester East voting Leave. Keith Vaz is the MP there, and one of the highlights of early Friday morning, 24th June, was his shock at how his constituents had dared to vote to leave the infamous EU project. Lee ended by saying that Brexit, and our Branch's plans for the future had reinvigorated him. We agree!

The collection and raffle raised £154.34.

It was agreed that we hold another social in the coming months.

EU Referendum 23 June 2016

Following the recent vote to Leave the European Union we have been sent a breakdown of the vote percentages in Leicester. Those of you who have been involved with the BNP for a number of years will notice that the areas where we did a lot of campaigning are the ones with the highest leave vote.


The following has been shared by the Leicester area organiser of Vote Leave, Roman Scuplak,  with everyone who assisted in the campaign to leave the EU in one way or another and should not be taken to show any direct connection between the BNP and the official Vote Leave Campaign.

"I have analysed the count information by ward from the count information provided by the Council and below give an estimate of the remain/leave split by ward for voters voting at polling stations.  It is only an estimate because the votes were not actually tallied at the count by ward as such, but by polling district.  But the polling districts counted by table were consecutive and any particular ward was tallied on one table only or on two at most.  Each table also included randomly received postal votes from around the City.



I have used the actual tallies and have excluded the postal votes which were randomly spread between counting tables and I have made certain assumptions.  Overall though they should be fairly close to the actual results.  That is because I know the actual results per table, the number of postal votes included in that table and the polling districts included in that table.  Since postal votes were randomly distributed amongst tables, one can safely assume that they split in the same fashion on each table between Remain and Leave.  One can also assume, because of the demographics of postal voters in Leicester that they were slightly more likely to vote Remain than the electorate as a whole.  Having done this there have to be some assumptions made about the relative Remain/Leave split as between polling districts that were mixed.  I believe that the assumptions which I have made are not far from the actual.  Though the information is given by ward, you have to appreciate that there were sometimes considerable variations within wards.  For instance, though Saffron ward achieved a 58.2% Leave vote, the result on the Saffron estate was considerable better than this.  Similarly with the 55.9% Leave vote achieved overall in Humberstone and Hamilton as compared with the Netherhall estate alone which was much better.  Conversely, the Remain vote in Castle overall was 71.7%, whereas it was much higher in the Clarendon Park area of Castle. 



That said, there were six unmixed counts (except for postal voters).  The Belgrave, Evington, Humberstone & Hamilton and Stoneygate wards had tables to themselves and a further table counted only Western ward votes (with one of the Western ward polling districts included elsewhere).  The figures for these six wards are therefore more certain than the others.


Therefore I stress that the figures below are estimates for the Remain/Leave split by ward for voters voting at polling stations (excluding the 18.7% of voters who voted by post).  Since the postal votes were entirely mixed, it is impossible to allocate these by ward.  The figures below are therefore slightly more “Leave” orientated than the votes cast by voters overall, because they exclude the postal voters."

Islamic Extremists Thriving In Leicestershire

We send our thanks to the concerned Leicestershire citizen who has sent the following information:


 Faiz Siddiqi of Hijaz College in Hinckley enjoyed and continues to enjoy close links with the Tottenham Ayatollah
‘Hijaz’ is the name used by many to refer to ‘Hijaz College’ which now also purports to be an ‘Islamic University,’ see http://www.hijaziu.com/ under the name ‘Hijaz Islamic University’  


Faiz Siddiqi aka Sheikh Faiz-ul-Aqtab Siddiqi heads Hijaz and its various associated organizations. He is a hardliner and an extremist who led who led an anti-Charlie Hebdo demonstration after 11 of the magazine’s staff were murdered by terrorists, see http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/law-and-order/12090591/Judge-allowed-to-sit-on-sharia-court-set-up-by-Hebdo-protest-cleric.html He runs the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal which is a Sharia Court system and the only Sharia Court system which is recognized under English law. It was established under the 1996 Arbitration Act on a statutory basis and as a result its decisions can be upheld by English courts, see http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3391501/Crown-judge-rule-sharia-cases-court-set-hardline-cleric-led-demonstration-against-Charlie-Hebdo.html   Concerns have been expressed by the Home Secretary Theresa May and she already indicated she wishes to launch an independent review into sharia courts and councils amid concerns that a “parallel” justice system is developing in Britain.   
In 1996, documentary maker, Jon Ronson, spent a year profiling cleric Omar Bakri Mohammed. Omar Bakri is a Syrian Salafi Islamist 'militant' hate preacher and self styled leader. He was instrumental in developing Hizb ut-Tahrir in the United Kingdom before leaving the group and heading another Islamist organisation, Al-Muhajiroun, until its disbandment in 2004. 
On 6 August 2005 Bakri left the United Kingdom following stories that the UK Government were planning to investigate certain Muslim clerics under little-used treason laws. He was banned from returning by British Home Secretary Charles Clarke stating that Bakri's presence in Britain was "not conducive to the public good." He subsequently took up residence in Lebanon. 
The documentary was aired on 8 April 1997 and was 1 hour long. It is not on Youtube or any of the other mainstream sites and it appears to have gone under the radar for many years, especially in relation to the links between Omar Bakri and friends with Faiz Siddiqi because even Jon Ronson himself hadn’t made the link!  
The clip of interest is here Omar Bakri with Faiz Siddiqi at Hijaz College, Coventry



The clip starts with the presenter from the ‘Jewish London’ Radio station explaining that Omar Bakri is organising a rally in London at which Osama Bin Laden is due to speak, the founding member of Hamas had sent a written message of support from his prison cell in Israel and Omar Abdul Rahman, the ‘blind sheikh’ who was convicted of planning the bombing of the World Trade Centre had sent a videoed message.   Jon Ronson goes on to explain that ‘in the days leading up to the rally in London a secret meeting / ‘weekend social get together’ was arranged in a country house in Birmingham with ‘all of Britain’s Islamic fundamentalist leaders.’ Jon Ronson goes on to describe how ‘the country’s most important and ‘media shy’ Islamic fundamentalist leaders are present for the meeting, including representatives from Hamas, Hezbollah and the Algerian Liberation Party’. Jon Ronson explains nobody was meant to know the meeting was taking place at all.  What Jon Ronson was unaware of, and is probably still unaware of is, that it wasn’t  ‘a country house in Birmingham,’ it was in fact a country house in Nuneaton, a sleepy village in Warwickshire some 20 miles or so outside of Birmingham called Hijaz College also known as Higham Grange on Watling Street and the meeting was organized and hosted by Faiz Siddiqi!  The shorter 6 min clip from 1.53 onwards shows Hijaz, although it is dark. From 3.26 onwards the cameramen are at the door to Hijaz and the foyer is clearly visible. At 4.38 onwards, Hijaz can be clearly seen and can be compared to the pictures on the Hijaz
College website http://www.hijazcollege.com/ and can be compared to the pictures here http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/337286 and more recently, just a few weeks ago, here http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/sharia-law-uk-ban-sharia-say-goodbye-chicken-tikka-masala-says-muslim-leader-1539341. Alternatively, locals from Hinckley / Nuneaton, details of whom can be provided, will confirm the video shows Hijaz College. [http://www.weddingtoncastle.co.uk/higham-hall--grange.html  shows the history of the Hall. Higham-on-the-Hill is actually in Leicestershire, the postal address is Nuneaton, Warwickshire. - Ed] 

Towards the end of the video, a young Faiz Siddiqi can be seen fooling around with a wooden slingshot whilst Omar Bakri is fishing. They make fun of Omar Bakri as to how he will fight Jihad if he can't even keep hold of a fish.  The weekend get together didn’t just consist of a meeting on the Friday night however – I know by those present that it was in fact a weekend of meetings and ‘military training camp’ as Hijaz is hidden away. On the Hijaz website, its location is described as “set in the heart of the English countryside within 62 acres.  The site is pleasantly secluded, and is located on the A5.  Hijaz ideally situated centrally, facilitating easy access from all parts of the country.  The nearest major cities are Birmingham, Leicester and Coventry.” See http://www.hijazcollege.com/location.php
  
Such meetings of extremists and fanatics have taken place regularly since 1996, except they have been secret meetings and within the knowledge of only a select few. I have been told of at least 5 other meetings in the last 5 years.  It has been relayed to me by persons close to Faiz Siddiqi that the annual gathering called the Blessed Summit in July at Hijaz is in fact a cover for a meeting of fundamentalists, extremists and terrorists who attend hidden amongst the guests as it would be difficult for the intelligence services to keep watch over such people in the middle of the countryside, see http://www.blessedsummit.com/

Grooming gangs in Leicester reported

At last the activities of grooming gangs exploiting children in Leicester has been acknowledged and reported on.

The Leicester Mercury published the report, outlining the activities of these verminous creatures.

http://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/Grooming-gangs-abusing-children-Leicester-hotels/story-28944761-detail/story.html

Once again it involves vulnerable, troubled youngsters. Once again the majority of victims are white girls, though some are boys and different ethnicities. And once again it has been known about for a very long time, but swept under the carpet in order to preserve the false ideology that different cultures will happily live together in harmony. Some can, some can't; it is to hoped that Leicestershire Police have the guts needed to go against the liberal agenda and rid our city of these polluting individuals once and for all.

BNP struck off electoral register?

Statement from BNP Chairman, Adam Walker:

A clerical error of misplaced £25 registration fee has catapulted the BNP into the headlines.

Far from being a matter for concern, the media interest in this easily corrected, technical oversight proves how relevant and newsworthy the BNP is.




As members and supporters will be aware from the huge media frenzy surrounding the BNP today, the Electoral Commission has technically and temporarily de-registered the party.

To put this into context, every political party must pay a £25 registration fee to the Electoral Commission of England annually to remain on the electoral register.

Owing to an unforeseen error, this routine registration fee has, at this point, not been processed for 2016.

This minor technical issue is being put right as we speak.

We can assure all members, supporters and voters that the BNP will be re-registered within a matter of days ready for our big push for the May elections.

In a communication this afternoon, the Electoral Commission has set out in writing the fact that the BNP is protected by law, and the simple re-registration currently underway cannot be sabotaged by hostiles.

Re-registration is in progress – it’s a simple process which only the BNP national officials who are currently in communication with the Electoral Commission are allowed to make:

“Under Section 33 (4) of PPERA, the British National Party’s identity markers, name, descriptions and emblems are protected until the 31st December 2017.

“This means that the Electoral Commission will not consider applications from other parties to register the same or similar name, description, and emblems during that period except applications by the British National Party in its current format.”

All members, supporters and voters can rest assured that it is business as usual for the BNP.

Now we’re looking forward to the Greater London Assembly, Welsh Assembly, and Local Elections throughout the country this coming May.


Kind regards,

Adam Walker
BNP Chairman

Minutes of the Leicestershire BNP Meeting held in west Leicestershire, 5th September 2015

The meeting opened at 14:35 by Regional Organiser Geoff Dickens on Saturday 5th Sept. 2015.

 Minutes of the last meeting were read by the Secretary and agreed as accurate.


Matters arising largely dealt with the funeral details concerning the recent death, and funeral, of Bob Walton who passed away on 8th August. Bob's legacy, Geoff promised, would be used wisely on behalf of Leics./E.Mids BNP.

The General Election, we were told, cost us about £1500, with quite an amount of leafleting in the Charnwood and Skegness areas. Membership in Leicestershire remains static and we now look forward to recruiting, and re enlisting, new and old members, rather like we did in 2003 and 2004.

We`re financially stable, both locally and nationally.


It was agreed that weekly "Meet the Public" leafleting sessions were to restart beginning on Saturday 12th September.

As a result of a quick check-up, it was agreed by the meeting that all existing officers would remain in their positions for the coming year 2015-2016, this motion was passed, but remains to be ratified at a Regional Meeting.

The Collection and raffle raised £363.
