We send our heartiest congratulations to Cllr. GRAHAM PARTNER who has been elected as Leicestershire's first British National Party County Councillor, winning Coalville Division in Thursday's local elections.

Graham, who at present is District Councillor for Hugglescote, polled 1039 votes, beating the Tories, Labour, Independents and Lib Dems.

A well-deserved result, Graham, we're all very proud of you. Well done to you, your hard-working team of activists, and all those who voted for you.

Our congratulations also go to SHARON WILKINSON, BNP's first County Councillor to be announced. Sharon won the Padiham and Burnley West ward, Lancashire with 1155 votes, beating Lib Dems, Labour and Tories.

Our 3rd. new BNP County Councillor to be congratulated is DEIRDRE GATES who won the South Oxhey, Hertfordshire seat. Never before contested by the BNP, Deirdre polled 783 votes, beating the Tories, Labour and Lib Dems.

Some quotes from the Leicester Mercury (6/6/09) that show just how well the BNP did locally in the county council elections:

...the BNP, whose backing increased to 12.1% of the vote. It was just 1% four years ago.

In 2005, the BNP fielded three candidates and got about 900 votes.
This year the party had members standing in all eight Blaby divisions and polled more than 4,000 votes.

The BNP claimed it was now the third party in Hinckley and Bosworth after beating Labour in every seat except Earl Shilton.
