Cromwell Club dinner voted a great success

The Cromwell Club is a venture instigated and organised by North West Leicestershire members of the British National Party. It's purpose is to raise funds for the Party by bringing members, supporters and friends together in an enjoyable, relaxed atmosphere.

The latest Cromwell Club black-tie dinner took place last Saturday evening at a prestigious venue in the Blaby District area of the County. It was well supported, with nearly 50 supporters from Branches, both within the County and beyond, present.

Dave was Master of Ceremonies, ably assisted by Andy. Although proceedings were delayed owing to the Guest Speaker, Richard Barnbrook, arriving later than planned, diners eventually sat down to a superb meal in good company.

After the meal, RO Geoff Dickens announced that the Candidate for the East Midland's target seat is Ian Mellor. Ian gave a short acceptance speech, in which he said that this was not only Parliamentary, but also building a higher profile in the East Midlands.
He was followed by Richard Barnbrook, who gave an inspiring after dinner speech.
Richard and Ian both received enthusiastic applause.

Dave conducted a Raffle and an Auction, in which a substantial amount was raised for the campaign. The meal was so filling that Richard couldn't eat his pudding -so this was auctioned too!
To add to the Collection, Geoff had to pay a ransom of £20 just to get out of the door...on his way to his local! And anyone who doubts that NWL is organised, well, NWL Organiser, Wayne McDermott, won 1st. prize - a bottle of vintage champagne (to shouts of "Fix!"), and another was won by the Guest Speaker - a cuddly toy, which he presented to his young lady.

A big 'Thank you' to all in NWL who organised, the event, with a special mention to Dave. Not forgetting Wayne, for his 'I'm a BNP Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here' rescue!
Many thanks to the host and staff of the venue for the wonderful meal and delightful ambience.

Floods in Cumbria -how you can help

All of us will have heard the news and seen the distressing footage of the unprecedented floods which have devastated Cockermouth and Workington when the rivers Derwent and Cocker broke their banks. We have grieved for the brave policeman who lost his life while helping others and we send our condolences to his family. Our hearts go out to all those affected by the floods. We have seen how the Emergency Services have risked life and limb to rescue marooned citizens, and organisations who are helping and giving comfort to people who have lost their homes.

We salute them all, but in every situation like this it takes money to get things done. The British people are renowned for helping people in a crisis, both at home and abroad; pulling together and, very importantly, putting their hands in their pockets to give generously to those in need. Cumbria needs our help NOW.

The Cumbria Community Foundation has set up a flood relief fund. If you would like to donate go HERE

The British Red Cross has been doing sterling work at the scene; you can donate to them HERE.

Don't forget the RNLI (Lifeboats). They are helping too, and rely totally on donations. Read what they are doing in Cumbria, and you can make a donation HERE

Leicestershire BNP member on Question Time

Cllr. Peter Cheeseman, a member of Leicestershire BNP tells us about his experience of Question Time (Leicester, Thursday 19th November):

"I applied to join the audience for Question Time when it was on in Leicester; I applied online via the BBC website. It asked many questions: name, age, address and various others, about what political party you stood for and if you where active and so on. As most people are aware I have stood for election before and if Googled many details can be found out quite easily. So here goes..... I filled out all the boxes and pushed the submit button.

Nothing happened for a couple of days so I thought well ...at least I tried.
Ring Ring...My phone. Hello, I answered.
It was the audience department wanting to clarify a few points on my application. Political party? British National Party..Active? yes....that's fine she replied I will send you a ticket..uh, was I hearing correctly I was getting on the show? Yes, she replied and we would like you to submit three questions, one now and two on arrival to the show.

O my God... What do I ask?
I rang around asking if it was OK to go to the show and what shall I ask?
This was sorted on Thursday about three hours before I was due at the studio.

The show was filmed at the Curve theatre, Leicester, I arrived at six with questions tight in my grip, a little hesitant and a whole lot scared! Was I walking into a bear pit like Nick? Well, I was not sure but this did not bother me too much as I was being met outside by fellow Nationalists for a drink after the show.

We where greeted with tea, coffee and biscuits and very pleasant staff both BBC and Curve personnel.
I was searched, as were the other audience members, and after a little R&R we were led into the theatre.

The floor manager introduced himself and explained how the show was to run. There was NO editing of the show so please conduct yourself in a orderly way. Well there's my first question gone..only kidding. H picked five members of the audience and sat them on the panel, put microphones on them and started telling us about silly questions people have asked in the past. They let us debate about other subjects for a while. When David Dimbleby appeared he told us how the format would be and also told us who's questions were to be asked and these people were led away to get wired ready for the show. The panel were introduced to us and a couple of questions put to them prior to filming. We were told we could cheer, boo, hiss and generally be noisy but please no swearing..

As the show progressed many subjects and topics were debated ....What would I say? ... then my chance to voice my opinion... Nerves were not a problem and I felt great and later when some one mentioned he thought immigrants where taking jobs I made my opinion clear by applauding loudly and - not surprisingly - alone.
Many people would have noticed that there was no audience participation granted to debate this as the show was near its end. I had a few comments for them but that will have to be for another day.

I had a main question for the evening ready but was not able to ask it, but thought you might like to hear it anyway... 'With the recent rise in popularity of the British National Party, Would the panel agree this has forced the Labour party into u- turning and the Conservative party to reconsider their stance on immigration?'...

Well there it is my experience of the day a BNP member was allowed into Question Time audience.

Thanks for all who helped and answered questions, and especially Geoff Dickens for allowing me to participate."

Cof E persecution at Frisby on the Wreake


In a small village in rural Leicestershire David North has worked for over 15 years as a church warden at Frisby church.

Mr North is a committed Christian who loved his job and was very popular with parishioners. But recently the hierarchy of the church has been putting increasing pressure on him to resign. Three weeks ago the pressure became too much for him and he quit the job.

You may be thinking "what terrible crime has he committed that could be so great that Christians, who are known for their forgiveness, would feel the need to persecute this poor man?"

Well, dear reader, the answer is that Mr North is a member of a legal political party. Yes, you did read that correctly. His only 'crime' is that he is a member of a LEGAL political party and a party that has elected parish, district and county councillors as well as two MEP's. That party is the British National Party (BNP).

In Britain today church attendances are at an all time low and militant Islam is growing rapidly. The church's response to this? It persecutes one of its own.

Does the Christian church have a death wish? That's certainly how it appears, but I never expected the Church of England to be one of those trying to kill it.

Remembrance Day at Coalville

Following a Remembrance Service at the church around 3500 people gathered at the War Memorial in Coalville on Sunday to remember those killed in wars. A short, moving Service was conducted here by Revd. Joss, followed by the two minutes silence and then the wreath-laying ceremony.


4 members of the BNP waiting to join the Parade. Mike Robinson holds the wreath which he laid at the Memorial on behalf of the British National Party, North West Leicestershire Branch.


The Parade halts at the War Memorial.



Coalville War Memorial, and the crowd assembled for the Ceremony. It was impossible to get near the front as far more people than previously had come to pay their respects this year. Doubtless this was because of everybody's anxiety and grief over the happenings and losses in Afghanistan.


11 o'clock and the people stand in silence to remember and honour the War Dead. Many of these have lost members of their own families, and friends, in conflicts past and present.


14 of the 23 BNP members who attended to pay tribute.


4 Leicestershire councillors pictured in front of the War Memorial after the ceremony. They are (left to right): Cllr. Ian Meller; Cllr. Wayne McDermott; Cllr. John Ryde; Cllr. Graham Partner. Cllr. McDermott was chosen to lay the wreath on behalf of Ellistown Town Council, on which he serves.

Afterwards, BNP members made their way to a local hostelry for a warming drink and to catch up with friends from the different Branches.

Thanks go to all who attended, and to 'Leicester Boy' for the photographs.

I DO NOT KNOW YOUR NAME

I do not know your name, but I know you died
I do not know from where you came, but I know you died

Your uniform, branch of service, it matters not to me
Whether Volunteer or Conscript, or how it came to be
That politicians failures, or some power-mad ambition
Brought you too soon to your death, in the name of any nation

You saw, you felt, you knew full well, as friend and foe were taken
By bloody death, that your life too, was forfeit and forsaken
Yet on you went and fought and died, in your close and private hell
For Mate or Pal or Regiment and memories never to tell

It was for each other, through shot and shell, the madness you endured
Side by side, through wound and pain, and comradeship assured
No family ties, or bloodline link, could match that bond of friend
Who shared the horror and kept on going, at last until the end

We cannot know, we were not there, it's beyond our comprehension
To know the toll that battle brings, of resolute intention
To carry on, day by day, for all you loved and hoped for
To live in peace a happy life, away from bloody war

For far too many, no long life ahead, free of struggle and pain and the gun
And we must remember the price that was paid, by each and every one
Regardless of views, opinions aside, no matter how each of us sees it
They were there and I cannot forget, even though I did not live it

I do not know your name, but I know you died
I do not know from where you came, but I know you died.

All those who died in wars, for us...

WE WILL REMEMBER THEM
