Minutes of the BNP Leicester Branch Meeting, April, 2009

The Meeting was opened and Chaired by Geoff Dickens.
56 people attended.
Minutes of the last meeting were read and agreed.

Organiser's Report
There was a short Organiser's Report by Geoff Dickens:

At the Battle for Britain fund-raiser we took over £2000, and the one in Ashfield raised a similar amount, both for the East Midlands. We have sent off our £22,000 for our glossy leaflets, to be delivered by the post office.

1st. speaker:
Pete Cheeseman, a new member, spoke on joining the BNP, from receiving his plastic membership card to going to his first meeting. He said it was like joining a family, and he was glad to be a member.

2nd. speaker:
Keith Addison spoke on the economy; our huge manufacturing base has gone, unable to compete with people earning 20 to 30 pence an hour as in China. We're printing money we haven't earned; Rhodesia and The Weimar Republic have done that and inflation followed, with a cup of coffee costing 2million Zimbabwean dollars. After the war we were told 'Export or Die.' We aren't exporting, and Keith can see this country dying.

Election report by Wayne McDermott
Wayne told us that we are the fourth biggest political party! He asked for some more people to stand in the council elections so that everyone would be able to vote BNP locally. He also told us that we need 13% of votes across the board in the East Midlands to get the Reverend West elected, and asked everyone to do something, leafleting, addressing envelopes, and attending the count.

15 minute interval

-Geoff told us that during the break two more established members had offered to stand in the Leicestershire area.

Guest speaker:
The Reverend Rob West, our guest speaker, told us that he was pleased to be addressing Britain's most fine and decent Party. The other Parties, he said, don't address the invasion, they call it immigration, but unless we remain the majority population, they will take over. It isn't racist to stand up for your community, your country, and the difference between their birthrate and ours is so significant that we are being dispossessed. All of the other racial groups in this country can play the race card, but we can't, we're just Whites, our ethnicity is being denied.
The Revd. then read out part of Michelle Obama's graduate thesis, where she wrote that..."There was no doubt in my mind that as a member of the black community I am obligated to this community, and will utilise all of my present and future resources to benefit the black community first and foremost." She is a black nationalist, which is fine, but if we said that about our white community it would be racist and wrong!
Reverend West went on to tell us where it says in the Bible that men should live in nations, in separate countries. The Church is critical of the BNP and it should not be.

The collection with teas raised £561.79 and one euro.
The raffle raised £69.70.
The next meeting is on 27th June in the Blaby District

"The Countryman", Sharnford, Leicestershire

Firstly, I want to make it clear that we have no connections to The Countryman in Sharnford.

My friend and I usually go out on Thursdays for a meal; as yesterday was St. George's Day, we wanted something typically English. We set off, with the St. George's flag flying merrily from the car window, and the 3 lions flag draped across the back.

Passing through Sharnford on the way to a pub we frequent, we were pleased to see that the first pub on Sharnford's main street was flying the flag; further along, we passed "The Countryman", and were thrilled to see St. George's flags in abundance; from a tall flagpole in their garden with 3 more flying on the pub frontage. Seeing this, we decided to stop there, and went in. The inside was decorated with St. George's Cross bunting,and while we were ordering at the bar, plates of miniature Yorkshire puddings filled with beef and accompanied by jugs of gravy were brought out for people to help themselves. What a lovely idea!

I asked some customers if this was usual. No, said one young man, there with his wife and little daughter, it's especially for St. George's Day; they came because it is his birthday. He added that it was also William Shakespeare's birthday and date of death; I shouldn't have been surprised that he knew that and said it proudly, but thank goodness there are still young people who know their history!

Now, we don't usually promote one pub over another, they all need our support to halt the rising tide of closures, but they made a real effort to celebrate our Englishness and deserve to do well; not only that, but they have a special 2 course offer for only £3.95 at the moment - the pudding alone would cost that at least in most places!

So, if you're in the area, visit this pretty Leicestershire village, pop in for a pint at least.
And if you were favourably impressed by an establishment's St. George's Day celebrations, get the word out and support them. Because they're worth it.

Saint George's Day, 23rd. April

This Thursday, the English will be celebrating the special day of our patron saint, St. George. In latter years, this has fallen by the wayside and even been actively discouraged by those who have sought to quash the spirit of patriotism towards our country. Parades have been cancelled with flimsy excuses and the flag of St. George has even been banned because it is "racist".

Through all those years, Nationalists held the flag aloft, along with it's ideals of fairness, justice and Christian values. Now, as people turn back towards their traditions, and Councils are frightened of the huge progress of the BNP, you will find that more towns, villages and cities will be celebrating our national day.

In 1997, it was notable that Leicester had more publicity for a Sikh celebration on St. George's day than for our own.

This year, plans are afoot to celebrate our day in the city in a big way, though it remains to be seen whether it will be truly English, or if displays of bangra, and the waft of greasy curry will accompany St. George in the Market Place on Saturday -held on Saturday, of course, because that will pull the shoppers in.

Our banner this week shows St. George slaying the dragon; the flag of St. George; the rose of England.
The dragon represents evil, which must be opposed; St. George represents good and he, and all those who are under his banner, will oppose and vanquish evil.

The flag of St. George carries a red cross in honour of St. George who was born in Cappadocia, part of the Byzantine Empire at the time, to noble Roman parents; like his father he joined the Roman army, but was later tortured and murdered for standing up for his Christian beliefs. English soldiers heard many tales about George while on Crusade; while George most certainly was real, and the tales were mostly myth, they were impressed by George's principles and ideals and adopted him as their champion. Thus, he became our patron saint.

The Rose of England is not the modern hybrid which people mistakenly think is our national flower; it is said that the red and the white rose were chosen as emblems of the Lancastrians and Yorkists at the outset of the Wars of the Roses; these would more likely have been Rosa gallica, the Apothecary's rose which is a deep pink, and the white dog-rose.
When Henry V11 married Elizabeth of York he brought the warring factions of England together, and also created the Tudor rose, a combination of red and white. This is a symbol of the unity of the English peoples and that is why we have chosen it for our banner.

A senior judge warns against the EU

From an article on the British National Party's website:

The European Union’s Court of Human Rights (also known as the Strasbourg court) is busy usurping British law and needs to be stopped, one of this country’s most senior judges has warned.

The EU court now “considers itself as the equivalent of the Supreme Court of the United States, laying down a federal law of Europe,” Lord Hoffmann, the second most senior Lord of Appeal, said in a recent speech to the Judicial Studies Board.

Lord Hoffman warned that the Strasbourg court is now overruling senior British courts in areas which, he says, human rights are at best secondary issues.

In his address, Lord Hoffmann gave examples of the Strasbourg court being “unable to resist the temptation to aggrandise its jurisdiction.”

Interference on issues such as the right to silence, the use of hearsay evidence in court and even night flights at Heathrow Airport — “which sounds about as far from human rights as you could get” — showed the “basic flaw” in the system, Lord Hoffman argued.
The article continues HERE, and ends:

Only the rejection of the Lisbon Treaty - and a vote for the BNP - will prevent British law being made subservient to foreign nations and incompetent legal entities. Let the British people not say that they were never warned.

An excerpt from our Bill of Rights, Oath of Allegiance, reads (1689, William and Mary):

[-]And I doe declare That noe Forreigne Prince Person Prelate, State or Potentate hath or ought to have any Jurisdiction Power Superiority Preeminence or Authoritie Ecclesiasticall or Spirituall within this Realme Soe helpe me God [-].
