Turbulent Times At The BNP.

with 5 comments

The British National Party is in turmoil, different factions are fighting it out, death threats, and they even expelled their assembly member for London, Richard Barnbrook.

The organisation is insolvent:

“Any remaining pretence that the BNP is not on the verge of insolvency was blown away when a document headed OFFER OF DEBT COMPROMISE sent by Jim Dowson to the BNP’s lengthy list of unpaid creditors surfaced over the weekend.

Dated October 6th (a Wednesday), the document gives the BNP’s “preferred” creditors just a few days – until Thursday October 14th – to accept a 20p in the pound settlement, and warns: “Thereafter there is no prospect of your invoices being paid at any time in the forseeable future.”

Nakedly attempting to bluff creditors tempted to use the courts to enforce payment, the heavy-handed Dowson claims: “Additionally, the lawyers who have reviewed the underlying contracts to most of the outstanding invoices have advised that most are not enforceable.”

This is almost certainly untrue, but it is an admission that the BNP considers any contract entered into with itself is not worth the paper it is written on.”

The rats have dashed off the sinking ship:

Add to that the court case which the BNP faces and it is not a happy time to be a British neofascist, and yes, that is a big smile on my face. They deserve it, and much more:

“The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) accuses Griffin, Simon Darby, the BNP deputy, and party officer Tanya Lumby of failing to comply with a county court judgment earlier this year ordering the removal of potentially racist clauses from the BNP’s constitution. The party faces a fine, hefty costs or possibly the sequestration of its assets if the court finds in favour of the EHRC.

Robin Allen QC, appearing for the watchdog, accused the BNP of “playing with” the commission and its officials instead of obeying the judgment.

He added: “Our principle position is: [Griffin] is simply lying [when he says] he did not know the terms of the order.”

Allen described Griffin as a “persistent offender” who had repeatedly failed to comply with various orders to change the constitution.”

Other BNP personalities, and an unsavoury bunch they are.

  1. Do we really endorse passing laws as to what political parties may stand for? To decide in advance that only certain views may be put to the electorate?

    In a free country, if Adolf Hitler were a British subject, he could stand at an election, if he wished, and advocate gassing all the Jews as his election platform. In a free country he would lose his deposit, thankfully. In a free country he would remain a harmless nut. A free country needs no sinister establishment “protectors” to decide who may address the nation.

  5. Indeed Jams, anyone with an ounce of antifascism in them (or a dislike of the nazis) would surely have a laugh at the downfall of the BNP.
