Election Debates

On Wednesday 14 April the South Leicestershire Conservative association arranged a public meeting where constituents could 'question your local candidates'.

As you can see from the advert above only three of the candidates were due to attend. I contacted the BNP candidate for South Leicestershire constituency, Paul Preston, to ask why he wasn't attending. He replied that he had no idea the meeting was taking place and had not been invited but would have been happy to have been on the panel and answer questions from local people.

On Tuesday 4 May at Lutterworth Town Hall there will be another 'question your local candidates' public meeting also arranged by the Conservatives.

This time you are invited to meet 'your main local candidates', which sounds like a way to exclude any candidate with an alternative point of view to that of the LibLabCon, and only the same three candidates are advertised as attending. Sure enough when I once again contacted Paul Preston he told me he has not received any invitation to this meeting either.

I have to ask myself if the Conservatives are frightened to debate with the BNP?

The pace hots up!

Yesterday saw the Truth Truck in Lutterworth, with the BBC filming and interviewing Harborough candidate, Geoff Dickens, as he chatted to local folk and gave out leaflets, most of which were received with pleasure. Look out for this on East Midlands news!

Afterwards, Geoff went to join other activists leafletting. Meanwhile, 2 Leicester members took the Truth truck to Corby; they were received warmly, both on the way there and around the town itself. Drivers tooting, thumbs-ups, and smiles were there in plenty.

Leafletting is of course progressing well around the County, NWL and Eyres Monsell in particular. Activists report a great reception wherever they go.

One of our Leicester members has spoken on the Politics show.

Cllr. Paul Preston, candidate for South Leicestershire, was interviewed on Radio Leicester's Dawne B show. Paul tells us: "They asked why black people should vote for the BNP. I said that the other parties are not fit for purpose - that was not broadcast; I told them I am mixed race, have been in the Party for 6 years and agree with all our party policies. They asked about the natfront, I said we had broken away from them in the 80s and never looked back and that Nick Griffin has moved the Party forward in a positive way."

BNP members staged a protest outside the Leicester South Hustings in protest at being excluded from the event.

The NWL Hustings went ahead as planned, much to the credit of the organisers and participants. Ian Meller, the BNP candidate, impressed the audience and did very well indeed.

No sign of a 'bigotsgate' -we leave that kind of thing to Labour hypocrites...

BNP at Leicester South Hustings

Yet another Hustings where Leicester voters were denied their democratic right to question their candidate, this time in Leicester South, but Leicester BNP decided to turn up outside and inform the people attending that Labour were preventing 'Free Speech'. The activists first finished some vital election work in Eyres Monsell Ward - part of Leicester South - before attending the Hustings.

The look on the Labour candidates face was a picture, and the Tory candidate spoke to BNP candidate Adi Waudby informing Adi he was happy to share a platform with us. After looking a bit deeper we have discovered the person sending the invite is indeed pictured with the Labour MP on many occasions and they seem to know each other well.

First, X-Factor Style Debates: Now Bollywood Glitz

Hopefully, voters will see through the 'Reality Show' hype of the TV debates, where audiences are encouraged to pick the next Prime Minister on style and presentation. We vote for the Party, and policies, not the nicest, or coolest looking chap on the podium!

However, Keith Vaz, the Labour candidate for Leicester East, has obviously decided that the glitz and glamour path is the way to go, and to that end is delighted that Shilpa Shetty is coming over from Mumbai to dazzle his constituents into voting him back as MP.

Miss Shetty found fame when she was a contestant on tacky Celebrity Big Brother. No stranger to scandalous rumours back home, Shilpa married long-standing boyfriend, divorce Raj Kundra, an Indian business tycoon.
Their wedding reception was held at the House of Commons, hosted by Mr. Vaz, though I can't find the occasion mentioned in the British papers, only Asian sites. Keith himself describes the occasion as a dinner; I rather think Indian wedding receptions consist of a bit more than something like prawn cocktail and steak and chips but maybe Keith skimped on the catering. I wonder how many guests were invited? But, more to the point, who paid for the bash? As we know, Keith is not above flipping homes on his expenses, nor wallowing in silk cushions, also paid for courtesy of the taxpayer.
But maybe this was his wedding present to the happy couple, so he wouldn't have expected said taxpayers to stump up. Whatever, what a terrific inducement for Shilpa to return the favour, on a 'I've scratched your back, now you scratch mine' basis. Let's hope she doesn't return to Mumbai this time with scandal attached...

What Is The Frankfurt School?

It seems that every decent person we speak to these days, whether friends, neighbours or people we chat with while out leafletting and canvassing, all are bewildered by the rapid changes in our society and they don't understand how it happened, or why. A common remark is "they must hate us, but why?"

If you've despaired of the falling standards in our country, if you feel the Law, and social attitudes, have turned upside down, please read the following.It's an extract from a much longer article, which you can read in full HERE, it's the second article down.
__________


The Frankfurt School

"Western civilization at the present day is passing through a crisis which is essentially different from anything that has been previously experienced. Other societies in the past have changed their social institutions or their religious beliefs under the influence of external forces or the slow development of internal growth. But none, like our own, has ever consciously faced the prospect of a fundamental alteration of the beliefs and institutions on which the whole fabric of social life rests … Civilization is being uprooted from its foundations in nature and tradition and is being reconstituted in a new organisation which is as artificial and mechanical as a modern factory.
Christopher Dawson. Enquiries into Religion and Culture, p. 259.

What is the Frankfurt School?
Well, in the days following the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, it was believed that workers’ revolution would sweep into Europe and, eventually, into the United States. But it did not happen. Towards the end of 1922 the Communist International (Comintern) began to consider what the reasons were. On Lenin’s initiative a meeting was organised at the Marx-Engels Institute in Moscow.
The aim of the meeting was to clarify the concept of, and give concrete effect to, a Marxist cultural revolution. Amongst those present were Georg Lukacs (a Hungarian aristocrat, son of a banker, who had become a Communist during World War I, a good Marxist theoretician he developed the idea of ‘Revolution and Eros’ – sexual instinct used as an instrument of destruction) and Willi Munzenberg (whose proposed solution was to ‘organise the intellectuals and use them to make Western civilisation stink. Only then, after they have corrupted all its values and made life impossible, can we impose the dictatorship of the proletariat’) ‘It was’, said Ralph de Toledano (1916-2007) the conservative author and co-founder of the ‘National Review’, a meeting ‘perhaps more harmful to Western civilization than the Bolshevik Revolution itself.’
This ‘School’ (designed to put flesh on their revolutionary programme) was started at the University of Frankfurt in the Institut für Sozialforschung. To begin with, school and institute were indistinguishable. In 1923 the Institute was officially established, and funded by Felix Weil (1898-1975). Weil was born in Argentina and at the age of nine was sent to school in Germany. He attended universities in Tübingen and Frankfurt, where he graduated with a doctoral degree in political science. While at these universities he became increasingly interested in socialism and Marxism. According to the intellectual historian Martin Jay, the topic of his dissertation was ‘the practical problems of implementing socialism.’
Carl Grünberg, the Institute’s director from 1923-1929, was an avowed Marxist, although the Institute did not have any official party affiliations. But in 1930 Max Horkheimer assumed control and he believed that Marx’s theory should be the basis of the Institute’s research. When Hitler came to power, the Institute was closed and its members, by various routes, fled to the United States and migrated to major US universities—Columbia, Princeton, Brandeis, and California at Berkeley.
The School included among its members the 1960s guru of the New Left Herbert Marcuse (denounced by Pope Paul VI for his theory of liberation which ‘opens the way for licence cloaked as liberty’), Max Horkheimer, Theodor Adorno, the popular writer Erich Fromm, Leo Lowenthal, and Jurgen Habermas – possibly the School’s most influential representative.
Basically, the Frankfurt School believed that as long as an individual had the belief – or even the hope of belief – that his divine gift of reason could solve the problems facing society, then that society would never reach the state of hopelessness and alienation that they considered necessary to provoke socialist revolution. Their task, therefore, was as swiftly as possible to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy. To do this they called for the most negative destructive criticism possible of every sphere of life which would be designed to de-stabilize society and bring down what they saw as the ‘oppressive’ order. Their policies, they hoped, would spread like a virus—‘continuing the work of the Western Marxists by other means’ as one of their members noted.
To further the advance of their ‘quiet’ cultural revolution – but giving us no ideas about their plans for the future – the School recommended (among other things):

1. The creation of racism offences.
2. Continual change to create confusion
3. The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children
4. The undermining of schools’ and teachers’ authority
5. Huge immigration to destroy identity.
6. The promotion of excessive drinking
7. Emptying of churches
8. An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime
9. Dependency on the state or state benefits
10. Control and dumbing down of media
11. Encouraging the breakdown of the family"

Do you recognise the results today from the above list? Do you get scoffed at when you express your concern about them? Well, now you know who the scoffers are: Communists, and those who have been gulled by them. Let's be honest, most of us fell for it in the 60s and 70s; when you're young you go along with the fashion to keep up with your friends. "It's progress, don't be so old-fashioned", I was told, if I didn't quite agree.
When you get canvassers calling at your door,show them this article and ask them if they have concerns about the items on that list, and what are they going to do about it?. Don't expect a straight answer from LibLabCon though, they're all in the mire together, all cosying up to their establishment lackeys, the Marxist UAF and Searchlight, who just love to promote the things on the list.
Then try asking the BNP; there's no doubt you'll get a more satisfactory reply

UAF Closes Down Democracy Again

It was with considerable pleasure that the BNP candidate for Harborough, Geoffrey Dickens, accepted the kind invitation to join the other candidates at a local Hustings organised by the Rector of Oadby, Canon Michael Rusk, on Tuesday evening:
The Rector of Oadby, Canon Michael Rusk, is organising a hustings on Tuesday 20th April at 7.30pm at Trinity Methodist Church, Harborough Road, Oadby and would like to invite Geoff Dickens, the BNP candidate for Harborough to attend.”

There was a hitch when the venue was changed from Trinity Methodist Church to Manor High School. It is to be hoped that this was because they needed a larger venue, and not down to being intimidated by UAF’s violent thugs. A person directly concerned with these Hustings opined that it was probably not a good move to re-direct the venue to a multi-racial area. We agree with that.


However, participants in the Hustings were contacted on Tuesday evening to inform them that the event had been cancelled:
“It is with considerable regret that the proposed Political Hustings Event planned for tonight at Manor High School has to be cancelled. Genuine concerns have emerged about holding such an event at Manor High School Oadby. It has been impossible at this stage to find a suitable alternative venue. The Hustings therefore are cancelled.
The reason for this was due to threats to the organisers by establishment lackeys, the odious UAF, who are well known for their violence against persons and property. They organised it via a Facebook campaign. I really wonder what their Tory backer and supporter, David Cameron, thinks of their disgusting anti-democratic behaviour? It is purported that the NUT were also involved; they have an ongoing hate campaign against the BNP in schools during the election campaign. They should be ashamed.
Locally, people have asked whether the Liberal, Tory and Labour candidates might have felt that they were going to have to answer some uncomfortable questions on MPs’ expenses, 3 threatened large supermarkets...and some rather odd business and Charity dealings for one of them – more will be revealed about the latter in due course.


It is shocking that after Canon Rusk and his team had gone to so much trouble to organise these Hustings, that a discredited group who include many arrested, some charged, with violence against persons, incitement to violence, acts of disorderly conduct and vandalism, can be allowed to disrupt democracy in this way. Do they not have the intelligence to realise that it wasn’t only the BNP candidate whom they inconvenienced? It impinged on all the candidates invited, who were looking forward to the debate; and also the audience, who were deprived of hearing what the candidates had to say, and putting questions to them. Not to mention those who didn’t know of the cancellation and turned up anyway.

I have had a delightful conversation this morning with people at the sharp end of this business (not the Parish Office whose phones were dead today, nor anyone connected with the BNP), as I was worried that they had been intimidated. They reassured me that everyone was fine, but that it had been very tense yesterday, disrupting their work. I was told that about 8 members of the Anti-Fascist League arrived at the venue, who expected about 30 of their cronies to come, no doubt to disrupt the debate.The other candidates, and people denied the chance to participate, have expressed their view that all are entitled to be heard, that any legitimate Party should be able to put forward their views.
This seems to be the concensus on all sides, even those who do not necessarily agree with the BNP. That is how democracy works.

I know that it would have been a good, lively debate; that everybody would have been polite and pleasant to each other, regardless of what Party they represented, if it hadn’t been for the seedy machinations of establishment lackeys interfering in the Parliamentary process, and closing down democratic debate. UAF might be crowing that they claimed a victory over the BNP last night, but given the other candidates’ view and the public’s reaction to their actions, it would seem that their fascist, anti-democratic action has backfired. That, at the very least, should be one point that all of us will rejoice at, no matter who our democratic choice of Party may be.

Update. Report in the Harborough Mail.

The Mail alleges that there was 'a swell of protest against Geoff Dickens appearing on the platform,; who exactly would this protest be coming from? UAF on Facebook. And '30 letters and phone calls' matches the 30 UAF protesters due to turn up. See the article above, where candidates and the public did not object to the BNP appearing. On the contrary, they were looking forward to hearing and debating his views.
I will reiterate that the persons I spoke to were at the heart of this furore.

Update: The fiasco was also reported in the Leicester Mercury.

Edward Garnier, the Conservative candidate fairly states that the BNP is a registered Party and that this was a denial of democracy; and indeed, he was very friendly towards Geoff Dickens and his agent when they met at Oadby Council Offices. Which makes it odd that he agrees with the Marxist, anti-democratic UAF's views. In fact, he agrees with these extreme leftists so much that he is a signatory on their list of backers/supporters, along with his boss, David Cameron.

Vehicle Crime Avoidance Advice

As the weather improves, more people are out and about, enjoying days out away from home. Many others will be travelling more due to the run-up and impending elections; they'll be parking their cars (motor bikes too) in unfamiliar locations while they leaflet or canvass the area, and will also be leaving their vehicles parked while at Polling stations. and during the long night hours at the counts. It pays to spare some time to ensure your vehicle is safe, and Neighbourhood Watch has published advice from the police on what to do to avoid vehicle/contents theft and vandalism.

Cars
Car crime accounts for nearly 20 per cent of all recorded crimes in England and Wales. It can be distressing, annoying and can cause a lot of inconvenience for the owner.
· Make sure that doors are locked and windows are closed when you leave the car even if it’s only for a moment.
· Leaving items on display in the car, for example handbags, jackets and mobile phones, are an appealing target for thieves. Take them with you, or put them out of view whenever possible.
· Consider having the windows etched with the car’s vehicle registration number and keep a note of the chassis number somewhere safe.
· Installing a 'Thatcham' approved immobiliser or investing in a steering lock can deter thieves.
· Car stereos are attractive to thieves, if possible remove them whenever you leave your car. Retract car aerials and tuck in wing mirrors to discourage vandals.
· If you have a garage at home, make sure you can lock it and use it. When using public car parks, try to park in an attended car park and look for signs that say ‘Secured Car Parks’. If you can’t find a car park, try to avoid parking in places that are unlit, have easy access and are hidden from public view.
Motorbikes
Motorbikes and scooters are also targets for thieves and more motorbikes and scooters are stolen than cars. Make it difficult for them by applying some basic security techniques.
· A lock for your motorbike is a must - a good disc lock or a U-lock applied correctly should always be used when you leave your motorbike unattended.
· Get a combined alarm and electronic immobiliser fitted professionally and make sure you set the alarm everytime you leave your motorbike.

Easter egg-on-face

The Sun comic had egg on it's face - alas, not the chocolate variety - on Friday when it published the "sensational news" that Nick Griffin had been stripped of his law degree by Cambridge University.

Unfortunately, the rather less than intelligent journalists employed by this rag neglected to notice the date on which this story was originally published - April 1st.
Overcome with their holy zeal of decrying Mr. Griffin and the BNP at any cost, these gutter scribblers launched the story into print and on the internet...on April 2nd., so they couldn't even claim it as their joke. The item was hurriedly taken down later when the gaffe was pointed out to them, but it was too late. The Guardian took up the story with great delight, sniggering at the red faces of their rivals, and revealing where the Sun had pinched their "exclusive" from.

It appears that this was an April Fool's joke, albeit one in bad taste, thought up by students at Cambridge and published in theirTab magazine. (A little problem for them, by the way, is that April Fool jokes end at mid-day on the 1st, and if carried on, the joke rebounds on the joker; the article is still up online!)

Because it was published on a normal day, a lot of people were taken in by the Sun's story. But when their puerile reporting was uncovered, many more were disgusted, not least by the fact that one of our most read papers cribs it's news from daffy student online mags.

The Sun isn't alone in printing lies to suit their agenda of course. This is just one of the more ludicrous examples. But it should hopefully make people stop and think about our national Press, and whether their reporting should be taken with a large pinch of salt.
Anyway, make my egg a chocolate one: eggs laid by rags like the Sun are just plain rotten.

A Special Easter Message from Nick Griffin

"Dear Fellow Patriot,
A special event that happened recently has changed my outlook on our struggle and the situation facing our sacred country. That event was the peaceful, sensible, mature debate with the Christian Party leader George Hargreaves and a large number of Christian Party members. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire debate which was noticeably absent of the usual hysterical fanaticism of the liberal-left.

It made me think long and hard about a new dimension of our struggle: our Christian religion, culture and traditions. In the past too much emphasis has been placed on the ethnic aspect of our present national dilemma, whilst the longest running feature of our identity has been overlooked: the fact that our country has been held together and guided for millennia by our common, ancient religion: Christianity.

And before you misunderstand me, I do not mean the gut-wrenching politically correct quasi-Marxist nonsense spewing forth from the treacherous leaders of the modern Anglican Church. I mean the traditional, upright, decent and honest Christianity that defended Europe from Islamic conquest, the Christianity of the Crusades and the Christianity of our forefathers.

There is nothing in traditional Christianity about world government, abolishing the nations, enslaving the world to finance capitalism and big business, eradicating traditional unique cultures and national identities, the promotion of sexual perversion, the glorification of treason, letting criminals run rampant and political correctness.

No, the Christianity of our forefathers was about honesty, family, patriotism, sacrifice, loyalty, king and country. For over 1,000 years Christianity held our people together and guided us through the centuries. If Christianity had not existed Europe would have been conquered by Islam centuries ago.

I made the irrefutable point during the debate with the Christian Party that the British National Party is the only political organisation in Britain that wants to keep this country fundamentally Christian, with Christian values, traditions and culture. Every other political party would happily allow Islam to engulf our Christian homeland.

After the General Election, all BNP leaflets will carry a Christian Cross to demonstrate our commitment to maintaining and preserving our Christian heritage as a nation. Politically correct scoundrels like Rowan Williams will cry foul but we have nothing to be ashamed of as we are the defenders of Britain's Christian heritage, just like our Crusader ancestors in the Middle Ages.

So this weekend enjoy the Christian festival of Easter with pride and remember the War Heroes that fell in the many wars to defend our homeland. Be proud of your British, Christian identity and reject the false guilt and self-loathing of the liberal-left political class.

The darkest hour is just before the dawn, but be of good cheer for Christ Our Lord is risen!

Yours sincerely,

Nick Griffin, MEP"
