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.

Im sure this will not come as a shock to many people who have seen ZanuLabour's true Marxist colours.
