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.

Bob Walton, R,I.P

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of Bob Walton on 8th August, 2015

Bob was born on 8th April, 1931 at Freeby, in Leicestershire, and up until quite recently he was one of Leicestershire BNP's most energetic activists, and staunchly loyal to the Party. He had been involved with Nationalism since the early 1970s, always ready for leafleting, and he constructed a special BNP trailer which he brought to protests.

He was a very 'hands-on' man, restoration of classic motor-cycles being one of his talents; a generous man who was always keen to help in any way he could. Bob was renowned for his witty quips and monologues, his sense of humour -  his jokes being a by-word!

Always bouncy and positive, it was a shock therefore to hear that he was in hospital with depression. Not like Bob at all. Later it was found that he had lung cancer. Before he retired, Bob worked as a crane driver for a local firm. This apparently involved him being exposed to asbestos.

We will miss Bob, he was a real character, and a true, patriotic Englishman. We send sympathy and conolences to his family and many friends. Bless you, Bob, and thank you.

Bob's funeral will take place at Gilroes Cemetery on Groby Road, Leicester, LE3 9QG on Friday, 4th September at 10.45am. All who knew Bob are welcome. Please be there by 10.30am.

Anti radicalisation software is being tested in local secondary schools -

The Leicester Mercury rported on 11th June that 2 local secondary schools  are testing anti-radicalism software.
The schools, which have not been named, are piloting a programme which raises alarms if pupils key one of a 1,000 suspect terms.
Extremist phrases which will trigger the system include "jihadi bride" and "YODO", short for you only die once.

This seems odd at first glance as we are told that Leicester is a haven of multiculture and tolerance!

Yet, only back in May, the newspaper reported that a man and woman had been arrested on suspicion of terrorism.
"The Met said the pair were detained on suspicion of making preparations for acts of terrorism under section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006 and making funding arrangements for the purpose of terrorism under section 17 of the Terrorism Act 2000.

Charnwood Elections Results

Charnwood Borough Council

Con   738

BNP  553 Cathy Duffy

Lab    247

Parliamentary  Con 28,384.   Lab 11,453.  Ukip 8,330.  LD  3,605.  BNP  489 Cathy Duffy

What was clear when  the East Goscote ballot box was opened, was that all but around 100 of the 553 people that had voted for Cathy in the Borough Election had switched to Tory or UKIP in the general.

Although 36% of the Borough vote was insufficient to retain our seat, it was still by far the best showing by the BNP.

Congratulations Cathy/ Maurice and team, our opponents know we will not go away.

Minutes of the Leicestershire & Charnwood Meeting, 28th February 2015

The meeting was opened at 2:30pm and the minutes from the last meeting were read, agreed and signed off.

Branch secretary Mike Robinson is poorly and sent his apologies. Activist Bob Walton is still poorly. We send our best wishes to them both, stalwarts of the party, for a speedy recovery.

Regional Organiser Geoff Dickens stated that we are adopting Borough Councillor, Cathy Duffy as our Parliamentary candidate in the General Election 2015 for the constituency of Charnwood.

 Leafletting to take place in:
12 Wards in Charnwood.
4 Wards in Blaby.
1 Ward in Hinckley & Bosworth.
There will be 4 teams of leafletters: one will be Cathy and Maurice themselves; the other 3 will be out on Wednesdays, Sundays and evenings.

Geoff showed us the "Let's vote them out" and the "Rebecca" leaflets. The latter was agreed to be the best one to start with.

The Charnwood electorate is 70,000, and cost of leaflets was discussed on this basis. We will pay 'as a team', the money is there and will be spent wisely. Areas and amounts of leaflets were decided. 

Today, the Pegida rally in Newcastle was held. A report from there about 2pm gave 600 patriots attending, (though that figure will have swelled during the afternoon). The counter demonstration pro-Islamification was incited by a local Islamic councillor and George Galloway.
Adam Walker has made good contacts at the rally and has been asked to speak in London.
We are proud that East Midlands members attended and thank them.

Revd. Robert West is standing in Boston and Skegness. We will all be supporting him. His hearing is in April, in Coventry. A banner has been made for a protest which will be at short notice, and those in the audience expressed their intention to attend.

The next meeting to be announced.
