Police Torture, Cruel Treatment, Withheld Medicines: This is Stalinist New Britain

Police torture which leaves innocent people bleeding and bruised; house ransacking of 75-year-old pensioners and the deliberate withholding of vital medicine to 70-year-old detainees suffering from stage three renal failure — this is the face of Stalinist New Britain as it has developed under the Labour/Tory era.

The story of the Liverpool 13, as detailed by them exclusively to BNP News, is a shocking tale of police abuse, sanctioned at the very highest levels of government. BNP activist Andrew Tierney today described how, after he had announced his intention to passively resist the forced taking of his fingerprints and DNA, he had been set upon by six policemen.

Showing the bleeding from the wounds he had suffered behind his ears, and the bruising on his side and arms, Mr Tierney said that he had told the policemen that he would not violently resist, but that he was a totally innocent patriot and as such he was not going to help them in any way.

“I told them I was only going to offer passive resistance. I was not going to be violent towards anyone, and would not use any expletives.

“I stood with my hands clasped behind my back, and the six policemen then set about me. At the time I thought to myself if this is what it takes for six of them to undo my hand clasp, they are lucky I am not in shape,” he said.

“They then somehow applied a tremendous pressure behind my ears, inflicting great pain,” he continued. Photographs taken shortly afterwards clearly showed bleeding from wounds sustained behind both Mr Tierney’s ears.

Next, the guardians of democracy applied some kind of pressure to his arms and his side, once again leaving considerable bruising, evidenced again by photographs taken shortly after his release.

“They then pulled my head back so far that my windpipe was restricted, and while I was gasping for air, applied pressure to the front of my neck as well,” he said. Nearly collapsing from the pain and lack of oxygen, Mr Tierney was then unable to prevent the policemen from taking his fingerprints.

“Next they grabbed hold of my nose, and once again somehow applied the most penetrating pressure to the back of my neck, forcing my mouth open to take a DNA swab,” he continued. The whole episode lasted at least a quarter of an hour, and Mr Tierney was left shaken and in pain, so that two other policemen, obviously appalled at his treatment, offered him water once the others had left.

Mr Tierney said despite the treatment meted out to him, he was not going to hold the policemen personally responsible. “I blame the state for creating the situation in which such things are possible,” he said. “What happened on Saturday is the inevitable end result of the anti-white racism and brainwashing which has permeated years of Tory and Labour rule. It was precisely against this which the ‘Racism Cuts Both Ways‘ booklet was aimed.”

While Mr Tierney was being manhandled in this manner, his 75-year old mother’s house was being ransacked by yet another team of police. Telling Mrs Tierney that they were looking for “guns and money” the police officers left after finding nothing, as Mrs Tierney told them they would.

Other activists’ houses were also searched. At the home of Mr Peter Stafford, police managed to find a laminated picture of BNP leader Nick Griffin which they confiscated, along with a number of BNP rosettes, all of which clearly showed that the whole operation was politically motivated and had no substance in ‘racially inflammatory’ material at all.

The oldest BNP leafleter to be arrested was Arnold Brindle, 70. The first thing he noticed was that his BNP membership card — only a few months old as he had just joined the party — was taken by a policeman and entered into a file as ‘seized property.’ Despite several requests, his card was never handed back, and no explanation was provided for this arbitrary act which was clearly unconnected to the allegations over the ‘Racism Cuts Both Ways‘ booklet.

All of the men were subjected to the most appalling deliberate delays in dealing with the matter as well. They were arrested at about ten minutes to one in the afternoon, but most were not even interviewed until after six pm, and the last was only interviewed well after 11 pm.

Mr Brindle, who suffers from stage three renal failure, was left alone in cell for five hours. “My doctor told me to always take my medication at the same time every evening,” Mr Briddle said. “I rang the bell to attract their attention to the fact that I needed to take my medication.

“They sent a woman who took my pulse and blood pressure. She then told me that I did not need my medication,” Mr Briddle said. “I tried to explain to them that this was my own doctor’s instructions, and not my request. They refused completely to give me my medication, with the result that I was only able to take it after I was released after two in the morning.”

All 13 men — Michael Phillips, Terence Oats, Paul Telford, Graham Davies, Arnold Brindle, David Bell, Peter Molloy, Peter Stafford jnr and snr, Peter Squire, John Brimelow, and the Tierney brothers, all had similar stories of how they were detained needlessly.

“Even though Merseyside police have said they will protect any BNP member list leak story,” Mr Molloy said, “We have no confidence in police after these series of events. It is incredible to think that this type of thing could happen in this day and age.”

Mr Molloy, who is the British National Party’s candidate in the Belle Vale ward, added that “the arrests made by Merseyside Police are politically motivated. They come from the anti-democratic New Labour Government who is running scared because ordinary British folk are turning towards the British National Party.

“The ‘Racism Cuts Both Ways’ leaflet shows that the white indigenous British people also suffer from racism and nothing else — an issue that the ruling elite tries to sweep under the carpet.

“They have picked on the wrong people if they think we are going to just roll over and walk away. Churchill sent the Royal Navy to the mouth of the Mersey estuary with their guns trained on the people of Liverpool; Thatcher tried to squash the people of Liverpool and failed. This New Labour Government is no better and we will not be defeated,” he said.

Advice on threatening phone calls

A number of BNP members have received threatening and malicious phone calls following the leak of the Membership List. Anybody who receives such calls are please asked to report it to their nearest BNP Branch Organiser so that a list can be made of all such harassment. Once the culprits for the blog are identified — and steps are underway to track that person or persons down — then they can be criminally prosecuted under the intimidation laws as well, providing we have the evidence to hand. Below is an extract from our main site:

BNP leader Nick Griffin said that he was working closely with the police who are taking the matter very seriously. “Anyone still receiving threatening phone calls from one of the pro-Labour trade union office phone banks who are behind a huge phone campaign should report it to the police and ask for a trace to be put on the line. Even Caller ID calls are instantly traceable by the police in such circumstances,” he said.

“We also need to hear of any problems that anyone does encounter so we can add them in to the list of consequences to be considered when the High Court is assessing the damages suffered as a consequence of the actions of the people responsible for this latest outrage,”

Therefore if you do encounter any problems please follow the above advice and also inform us in writing via email or to the postal address above so a record can be kept.

Simon Darby's view on the week's events

At this stage, late on Wednesday evening it has become very obvious that what we have witnessed over the last 24 hours has been a determined, co-ordinated and underhanded political attack on the British National Party by elements closely aligned to the Labour Party and the Trades Union movement.

Hundreds upon hundreds of our members have received abusive and threatening calls from a trades union call centre. Probably the same call centre that has been utilised in the past to canvass and selectively poison the electorate against the BNP in various target wards.

Several complaints of harassment have now been submitted to individual police forces across the country as the extent of this disgraceful operation is made clear. Members are advised to issue "no comment" statements to journalists and warn them of possible representations to the Press Complaints Commission. Threatening and abusive calls should instantly be reported to the police, recorded if possible and a demand should be made that the calls be traced.

Without a shadow of a doubt this collective attack on each and every one of us has brought our organisation closer together. Several journalists expressed this feeling to me late last night and first thing this morning. Further conversations have indicated that their is a common consensus that this shocking act has a high probability of backfiring in a spectacular style. As such nobody should panic, everyone should keep their heads and remember that united strength is stronger.

Remember this isn't just an attack on the ranks of the British National Party, this is an attempt to bully and oppress the whole population. It is a cynically calculated move to plant the idea in people's minds that if you object to Labour and consequently agree with the BNP, you lose the right to earn a living and feed your family. Think on that ladies and gentlemen, because that is the core of what has been said and done.

I emphasised in my addresses in Blackpool over the weekend just how close we are to moving up to another level. Well this just goes to illustrate my point exactly. If a cheap stunt like this is all they have in their locker, then every single one of us should take heart from the fact that in essence we are witnessing before our very eyes the death of the Labour regime and the vicious stranglehold it has on our freedoms.

We've been here before haven't we, these events, just like tacky Christmas commercials, come round with a predictable monotony. Yet another attempted "BNP Buster", like so many before, but this time there is a difference, a distinct sense of unease amongst the British population about what is playing played out here. You can almost smell that discomfort and contempt for a society that allows the naming and shaming of innocent members of a perfectly legitimate political party yet sanctions the cloaking of the identities of monsters who torture young children to death.

I was asked today how I felt about the effect the publication of our membership details would have on the BNP. The answer I returned was not quite the expected response. "In my opinion this is a pivotal moment in the evolution of the British National Party" I replied, "This will be the exact time when through their frustration, vindictiveness and hatred our opponents gifted us the mantle of a mainstream opposition organisation overnight." In the scheme of things this appalling error of judgement and complete lack of understanding of the British psyche is about as close as you can get to the political equivalent of the process of natural selection. It goes without saying that as a consequence I, and indeed the rest of you should sleep very well tonight.

Membership list leak: official statement from Nick Griffin

"A number of members have expressed concern over the ‘leak’ of an old BNP membership list onto several crank internet forums. The list is essentially genuine, but has been slightly modified.

Presumably in an attempt to cause further mischief, it appears that a number of individuals who were not at the time, or who are not and never have been members of the party, have been added.

The vast majority of names and addresses on it are, however, from the November 2007 membership and skills list kept by a former head of administration of the party. This is the same list that was used to send via snail mail the bogus British Nationalist members’ bulletins last December and January.

Detailed analysis by our membership department proves conclusively that the core list dates from between 30th November and 2nd December 2007.

We have already sent formal demands to the web hosts to remove the list, pointing out to them that the fact that the publication of this year-old list constitutes Contempt of Court because a court order preventing its release or use was made and consented to by the group of disgraced former employees who first misappropriated it.

The web hosts’ legal department has already acknowledged receipt of our detailed analysis and demands. A solicitor has been asked to consider the implications of this for the final stages of that legal action, which is still not concluded, and we will be taking advice as to what can be done by way of enforcement of the Contempt of Court order.

One good thing here is that even former doubters will now be able to see that we were absolutely right to take court action, regardless of the potential cost, in order to try to secure our members’ right to privacy. While we regret that this has now failed, we did at least try, and we have since radically changed procedures to avoid a repeat of this problem in the future, as well as getting rid of the staff members behind this disgraceful act of treachery.

We have also already made a complaint to Dyfed-Powys Police and will be giving formal statements shortly to support our demand for a serious and thorough police investigation into a series of very serious potential crimes, including breaches of the Data Protection Act, theft and receipt of stolen goods, and breaches of the Human Rights Act. Unless those involved have been extremely careful to cover their tracks, they are liable to find themselves in very serious trouble - and in prison.

Although it is not normally our practice to either confirm or deny whether any individual is a member, in the case of any of those whose names have apparently been maliciously added to this list suffering any problems as a result we will gladly confirm their non-membership status.

Genuine members who are concerned over possible problems that could arise may like to note that even the leftist bigots of the General Teaching Council accepted openly at Adam Walker’s disciplinary hearing yesterday that he had every right to be a teacher and a member of the British National Party. The fire service has already accepted the same point.

While the GTC’s use of a technical infringement of a rule that Adam had never been told about is obviously motivated by political malice, the fact remains that police officers and prison warders are the only people whose jobs involve a specific (and probably illegal) ban on them being members and candidates as long as they do not bring their politics into the workplace.

The recent Equality Act makes it clear that discrimination against an individual on political grounds constitutes a breach of contractual employment law. In the highly unlikely event of any individual one of our many thousands of members being ‘exposed’ to their employers and suffering discrimination as a result, a substantial compensation pay-out will be on the cards.

We would recommend very strongly that anyone who believes this might become as issue for them joins the independent nationalist trade union Solidarity straight away. While leftist unions will turn their backs on - or even demand the persecution of - BNP members, Solidarity has already built up a great record of fighting and winning cases for its members. The time when our opponents could bully our people with impunity are now over, but our opponents haven’t quite cottoned on to this yet.

The timing and actual aim of this leak story is blatant: It was set running on Sunday evening, when the clique who co-ordinate virtually all anti-BNP campaigns would have been confident that the following day’s kangaroo court at the General Teaching Council would take away from Adam Walker his right to teach.

Had that been the result, the verdict would have been a big news story, which would have set things up perfectly for the follow-up publicity storm about thousands of BNP members being ‘exposed’ which would have broken over the rest of the week. Without a single person on the leaked list being persecuted purely for their views (because to do so is illegal), the public would have been left with the impression that the two stories were connected and that all of them would be hounded out like Adam was supposed to be on Monday.

Thanks to the shock legal victory by Adam Walker’s Solidarity union rep Pat Harrington, however, the GTC has, as has already been noted, been forced to confirm that there is no chance of him or anyone else being sacked for their political views or active involvement. So the leaked list story is going to fail to achieve anything except a fresh burst of great credibility publicity for the BNP.

It is also important for anyone who is a bit concerned to understand that there is nothing new here and that today’s news does not in fact reflect any real threat against any patriot. Thanks to the treachery of the now long-dissipated Searchlight-linked rebel faction, the entire list has not only already been bombarded with lie-filled anti-BNP propaganda, but it has also without doubt been available to the far-left for the best part of a year already.

Fortunately, however, the laws brought in to prevent animal rights extremists from harassing their opponents also serve as a huge deterrent to the use of such information to harass our members.

It is to be expected that the press will trawl the list for a nationwide version of the story which broke in the Guardian when their undercover journalist Ian Cobain provided them with details of BNP members in London back in December 2006.

At the time this led to a huge fuss not only about lead English Ballet dancer Simone Clarke, but also a member of staff at Buckingham Palace, medical practitioners, City high-flyers and other figures of note.

Once all the fuss had died down, not one of them had lost their job or suffered any other problem other than the worry to which they were unfairly subjected.

The story did, however, greatly aid our credibility and helped to break down the older image of the BNP as a party mainly for the northern working class. In the end, all such attempts to bully and intimidate our people blow up in the faces of our opponents. You can reassure any members who do come to you to express concern that this time won’t be any different.

Seasoned observers and switched-on members will recognise a clear pattern: Every December there’s a big push to try to put people off the huge ‘spike’ of members who are due to renew at the end of one year and the beginning of the next. Two years ago it was the Guardian infiltration leak, which blew up in their faces. Exactly a year ago, six months before the GLA election, there was a desperate attempt to destabilise the party and to hit our election war-chest by frightening people away - it failed and we made the big London Assembly breakthrough.

And this December, just six months before the proportional representation European Parliamentary elections give us the chance for a gigantic leap into the mainstream big-time, we get another leak intended to frighten the faint-hearted.

It was absolutely obvious that the sensational BNP by-election victory in Boston at the end of last week would spark a desperate reaction from the Establishment and their ‘plausibly deniable’ far-left allies. We effectively hoovered up the entire UKIP vote in that contest - in the area where they got their best result in the entire country in the last European elections.

This latest attack is not really directed against our own people, who are already tough-minded and know that nothing ever comes of this sort of bluster, so much as against the thousands of UKIPers who are thinking of joining us. It probably will frighten some of them, but it’s water off a duck’s back to the stout-hearts of the British National Party. Let’s enjoy the publicity bonus!"

Update -a very poorly local activist

In October, we reported that Jeff, one of our Blaby District activists, had been taken ill. His wife has now let us know that Jeff is very, very ill indeed; the outlook is not good. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts at this sad time.

Jeff's wife has now read the cards and messages from all of us and wishes everyone to know that she thanks you for them, and found them very moving.

Congratulations, Councillor David Owens!

Congratulations to David Owens, who yesterday easily beat all other Parties in Fenside ward, Boston to become our new borough councillor in Lincolnshire. His share of the vote outstripped all those of Labour, Tories, Lib Dems and UKIP combined.

Cllr. Wayne McDermot, the BNP's East Midlands Election Officer, who managed the campaign said:

"The BNP campaign was fought on national issues, and on immigration in particular.

"There are two important implications in this result; the first is that there are a large number of similar wards in and around Boston, in which this result could easily be replicated. Boston therefore has the potential to become a key area for the BNP.

"The other important factor is the total collapse of UKIP. In the 2004 Euro elections, Lincolnshire was one of the strongest areas to come out for UKIP, and it is clear that the BNP has now surpassed that group as the premier anti-EU party of choice for those voters."

Councillor David Owens

Full Result:

BNP 279

Boston Bypass Independant 141

Conservative 119

Labour 69


Lib Dem 23

Markfield, Stanton and Fieldhead by-election results

The result of the by-election for this ward is as follows:

Con 637
Lab 521
Lib Dem 390
BNP 263 14.5%

41% Turnout

This was a hard-fought campaign and we thank all our activists who took part, and also the discerning people of Markfield who voted BNP. We shall be building on this result in the future. It is interesting to note that although they put out 16 leaflets, the Lib Dems still only managed a third place!

Racism Cuts Both Ways!

The British National Party has launched a ground-breaking campaign to expose the true scale and nature of the anti-British racism engulfing our community.

Via a full-colour brochure which will be sent out to elected representatives, young people, TV and radio stations, and many other opinion-formers across the country, it will send a clear message that we, the indigenous people of Britain, will not be silenced.

This brochure contains shocking facts and images which will upset many who are seeing them for the first time. But they must be published, the truth must be told. When you receive a copy, please take the time to read it carefully; if you wish to download a pdf version, and/or donate to the campaign, you can do that by going to our main site: HERE

Remembrance Day at Coalville

11 members of BNP Leicestershire Branch joined fellow members from North West Leicestershire to honour and remember the fallen at Coalville on Sunday. There were 23 of us in all, including one young member who had come from Yorkshire.

Some local BNP members joined the large congregation for the the service at Christ Church first, while outside a growing crowd filled London Road. After the service the Parade assembled and, walking behind the band, the Royal British Legion and several units of smart young cadets, we made our way to the War Memorial. On either side, the road was thronged with people come to pay their respects on this cold, wet morning.

By the time we reached the Memorial, the Parade and crowd numbered around 3,000, many of whom were youngsters and small children; each year, the numbers at Coalville increase, a testament to the local peoples' patriotism and desire never to forget our fallen and injured heroes from all wars.

The thoughtful and moving service was conducted by Reverend Joss; after the 2 minutes silence at 11 o'clock, the wreath-laying commenced. Mike Robinson, Leicestershire's Deputy Organiser and an ex-member of HM Armed Forces, laid our wreath on behalf of the British National Party.

After the ceremony, our members gathered with townsfolk at a local pub, to warm up and share our thoughts of the morning's events.

"They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going downof the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them"

Some poppy stories to ponder:

Last Friday, thieves broke in and stole charity boxes, 2 of which were for the Poppy Appeal, from a beauty salon in Melton.(LM, November 7th.)

Managers at Leicester's new Highcross shopping centre asked a WW11 hero to sell poppies outside in the freezing cold. They later developed a conscience and invited him in, but the veteran declined. (from The Sun)

Another veteran poppy seller had all his Appeal takings stolen in Leicester city centre. After this news was broadcast, he was flooded with donations for the Appeal by members of the public who were outraged by this cowardly attack.

A gang (from the West Midlands) was caught operating an illegal gambling game in Leicester city centre, but they didn't profit from it because the police officers who caught them handed the money to the nearest poppy seller. (LM, November 6th.)

Tesco to axe 65 Depot jobs in Hinckley

65 workers at Tesco are to lose their jobs in the next couple of weeks as redundancies have been announced. Nothing new in this current climate we face, even though Tesco are now looking at the Christmas rush and profits continue to be huge.

What is shocking is that Tesco are setting on extra agency staff at the same time. Disgruntled workers are angry that these agency workers are from the EU and most of them cannot even speak English. Yet again Big Business puts profits first; we in the BNP would get us out of Europe and stop this unhealthy import of EU workers who are able to work for much less money. Only by getting us out of the EU can we then take control of our borders again and put British Workers First.

Following an article in the Hinckley Times concerning the redundances, but not giving the whole story, a letter was published in that paper from someone who evidently has now borne the brunt of Tesco's tactics. Here is a transcript of that letter:

"I read the article about Tesco (HT October 16th) and it has compelled me to write confirming that 65 people who will be redundant by November 7th are to be replaced by agency workers whose training will commence on October 20th.
The problem with this is, agency workers in the past have been given Tesco contracts and we think that the company is using this redundancy to push us out and install more workers from the EU.
The pick rates are set up by people on the computers, so why on earth should the British workers be discriminated against and have more than one item on their pallets, and the agency workers, most of whom cannot read or even speak English, have only one item so they do not get it wrong, and look like they are working harder!"

Remembrance Day, Sunday 9th. November

"Your officers in Leicestershire, and NW Leicestershire BNP would remind ALL members/friends that next Sunday (9th Nov.) is "Remembrance Day", exactly 90 years since the guns ceased firing on the "Western Front". Well over a million of our people, guys AND girls, have died wearing HM uniform since August 1914. We, the living, owe it to them that this supreme sacrifice is not - ever- forgotten.

Charnwood members will no doubt meet for the Loughborough service, likewise the Melton Mowbray people in Melton. The rest of us, Leicestershire, and NW Leicester branches, will once again join the throng on London Road, Coalville around 1000-1015 am.

Shortly afterwards, the whole gathering moves in procession along London Road to the Coalville War Memorial where, after a short service, the wreaths are laid. BNP ALWAYS takes a full part in all this, so make sure you (and yours) are there please! Dress smartly please, as we always try to be the `smartest guys on parade': you don`t want to be mistaken for one of those scruffy socialists, do you ?
PS Dress warmly, too, as Coalville could easily have been called COLDville!"

-Mike Robinson, Leics. Dep. Organiser


In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields
