Leicester Branch Meeting 21st June 2008

The meeting was chaired by our Hon. Secretary, Michael Robinson; Helen Cooke read the minutes of the last meeting.

Regional Organiser, Geoff Dickens, brought us up to date with happenings in Leicestershire; he reported an unprecedented response to leafletting in Fleckney. He went on to relate a comment from a new Leicestershire member, a retired Naval Commander who has just joined us; he apologises that he can't be active as he is 86 years old.

Geoff related how Leicestershire BNP used 500 hours of their weekend time to stick labels on leaflets for the by-election in Henley. He added that while the other Parties had handed in their leaflets in new boxes, we recycled old ones! Now who's the green Party?

A Voting Members' Meeting will be held on the 25th July, where anything can be brought up; 3 suggestions will be chosen which will go to the Advisory Council. Get in touch with Geoff if you'd like to attend.

James Mole will be discussing Fundholding and Treasury at the Summer School. He will then become Fundholder for the Region.

Councillor John Ryde, our Press Officer, announced that we will be contesting a Derbyshire ward,and that Rev. West will be standing in a seat in Lincolnshire. John's output of printed leaflets has grown considerably, and will continue to increase towards the EU elections. While the far left are getting more clamorous, and showing themselves up in the process, John pointed out that our leaflets are reaching every household.

Councillor Paul Preston is organising a car boot sale, with proceeds going towards the EU elections, so if you have quality items for him to sell, please get in touch. Paul also related the amount of work BNP Councillors actually do, in contrast to the Left's slurs. Our Councillors score incredibly highly, compared to many from other Parties.

Maurice Collett spoke about his up-coming bike ride to raise funds towards the EU elections. (see the video interview with Maurice here). He said that getting sponsors is easy, as people are very willing to help the BNP. To get sponsorship details, contact Maurice on 01162 303 814, or Wayne on 07775 797 775 to pledge your help on the day.

Following on from Mike Robinson's warnings concerning the Lisbon Treaty, Peter Jarvis gave an excellent talk, examining the reasons for the extinction of many of our native species, the loss of many vegetable varieties, etc.; he linked this with the EU, mass migration, over-dense population. He pointed to the lack of respect which runs through and is a corrupting influence which spreads through everyone. He maintained that the architects of the EU do not trust people not to say 'No', and quoted the Act of Supremacy of 1559.

Our guest speaker, Arthur Kemp, began his talk by describing how Kenneth Bigley was executed 4 years ago in Iraq, killed by halal ritual slaughter. Arthur then took us back to 1480, when the native peoples of Otranto in Italy were besieged by the muslim army; they were given the choice of surrendering and converting to Islam, or be killed. They chose to stand and fight, were overcome, and all died horrible deaths.After a full description of these events, Arthur then brought us back to the present day, comparing the many iniquities in Britain. He called for more candidates to stand as more and more people were waking up and crying out to be given the opportunity to vote BNP. Another inspiring speech from Arthur, and we thank him for coming to our Leicestershire meeting.
