I'm a freelance journalist. I
I'm writing about rising support for the BNP. I'm looking at areas of traditional support for the BNP and new stronglands. The context for this is the MEP elections.
I realise Leicestershire is a growing base for the BNP and i wondered if i could speak to some of your supporters and activists there? Could you pass on an email adress for the Leicestershire community voice blog spot? I can keep any names anonymous but i am keen to see why people there support the BNP.
I realise you may be disdainful of journalists, however i am keen to see why you are so popular and will hope to represent your supporters views honestly."
Leicester's Organiser, Geoff Dickens, has replied with this response:
"Hi. The reasons given by voters, and new members alike, are they feel the old parties lib lab con, treat the British people with contempt and disdain. The face of Britain is changing, many feel discriminated against, they are fed up with being labelled RACIST if they complain about traveller sites, muslim studies in christian schools, white women being spat at and called whores as they go for a night out, older members see their children and grandchildren leaving Britain, because they see no future in the UK. We do not train our own people, instead we import the labour from developing countries, plundering them of their best people. I have forwarded your phone number to Leicester Community Voice.
Regards, Geoff Dickens"
We have decided not to publish the lady's email address for security reasons, but you can reply to her via the comments facility on this blog. This is for members, activists and supporters to give your reasons say and we encourage you to do this. While she does not want to know names, it might be an idea for commenters to state the general area they are writing about, in order to get a cross-section of views around the County.
