Subject: BS: Nick Griffin to stand in Oldham by-elect
From: Owen Woodson

In case anyone hasn't heard it yet, the Oldham East and Saddleworth by-election has been called for Thursday 13th January. What hasn't been so widely announced is that BNP leader, Nick Griffin will be standing.

Given the mass discontent with the Tories and Lib-Dems, plus the fact that the seat was previously held by a disgraced Labour MP, plus the fact that the Conservative candidate is what the BNP in all its racist bigotry calls an ethnic, Griffin clearly hopes to do better than he did in Barking at the general election.

He won't win, but make no mistake. A respectable turnout for the British Nazi Party would be a disaster in terms of race relations in Oldham. Also, it could mark a turning back for them at a time when their fortunes seem very much on the wane.

I am not from Oldham, and I can't advise people how to get involved. But if there is anyone out there who lives in that area, and understands the dangers of fascism, please do whatever you can to stop this from happening.

Kitty,

The day the B*N*P complies with any legal requirement will be a major breakthrough. However, there's one thing which may stop Griffin dead in his tracks. The court case relating to the B*N*P's racist constitution, and Griffin's alleged contempt of court is due to resume tomorrow.

See http://uaf.org.uk/2010/12/demonstrate-at-nazi-bnp-leader-nick-griffins-court-hearing/for more info.

There is a strong possibility that Griffin could be jailed over the constitution and/or contempt. Either way, a stretch in the slammer would do his election campaign no good at all.

I am not a member of the BNP, or even a supporter, but there is much hypocrisy in the Anti Griffin campaign.

I wont forget when Mr Griffin appeared on BBC Question Time and was referred to as a Fascist sympathiser by a certain Mr Straw.

Mr Griffin retorted that his father had served in the RAF fighting Fascism in WW2, while Mr Straw's father had spent the war in jail, as a conscientious objector.

While I admire pacifist ideology, Mr Straw's comments were ill advised in the extreme.
The response is in line for "most cutting of the decade"

Just because people dislike him and what they think he stands for, it doesn't mean that all his observations are wrong. Most are, in my opinion.

Whilst I wouldn't vote for the BNP, I AM concerned about how insidious the loss of our heritage has become.

We are becoming a race of people who are not allowed to express our fears and concerns because we'll be labelled 'racist'. Yet those 'in control' appear happy for those rules to be broken by the the Muslim groups (in particular) that openly preach death and destruction to our people and our way of life.

We are told that the vast majority of Islamic adherents are peace-loving and want nothing more out of life than we do. But they are just that - a silent majority and apparently powerless to stop the radicals that are painting all Islam with a terrorist brush - unless of course, they tacitly approve of this invasion.

Because, in that particular area, I agree with the BNP view - does that make me a racist, bigot or whatever, or does it make me a realist?

Quite often, I'm not sure anymore. I must admit to being very worried about where this country is heading.

Just to put the record straight....Although I think of myself as a radical, I very much agree with Brian's post above.

Too many people allow their political label to influence their powers of reason.

This is very obvious in the Republican/Democrat War in the USA where folks are immediately defined by the way they vote.
People cast their votes for all sorts of reasons

Mostly its the "least worst" option.....Isn't that a shame, when we could be spending time and energy constructing something which we could believe in.

We should be able to charge them (financially) for costing us so much.

The present election will be a very good opportunity for the BNP to stir up inter-ethnic conflict. They will stir it because they know there are people in this world who are daft enough to support them and blame the Muslim population for the resulting violence.

"Loss of our heritage"

I don't know what it means to Nick Griffin, but I do know what it means to me.

When I was growing up in the 50s and 60s, I could pretty much say or write what I pleased and the worst I risked was a bollocking from a 'grown up'.

We had toys called gollywogs - much loved by kids . . .

Nursery rhymes such as Baa Baa Black Sheep were fun for kids . . .

We had stopcocks for turning off fluids in pipes . . .

We had manhole covers that allowed inspections of sub-surface utilities . . .

I could describe myself as a 'Brit' and someone from Pakistan as a 'Paki' . . .

We looked forward to Christmas, not XMas, or Season's Greetings . . .

Asylum seekers who had been convicted of crimes, then fatally injuring a little girl with their car and leaving her to die . . . would have been sent home - without considering HIS human rights . . .

People were not afraid to clear the snow outside their house (and perhaps even the neighbour's too) because if someone slipped, they'd say 'oops' . . .

We played and enjoyed silly things like rolling cheeses downhill, playing conkers and riding our bikes (with lights) . . .

Perhaps this is just an insight to what I mean when I say 'loss of our heritage'. There's plenty more over the last 60 years, but above is just a sample.

We didn't even know what politically correct meant, foreigners were even welcomed as they actually had FEWER rights than those of us who were born and grew up here.

We were a lot more PROUD to be British (before that became a joke amongst the manic do-gooders).

So, is Nick Griffin a fascist? Probably, but that doesn't make everything he says wrong.

I lament the changes I've seen in the last few years, we are losing our identity or more accurately, it's being stripped and given away by well meaning individuals and groups who won't address reality for what it is.

WE are being exploited. If you doubt it, have a good read of Wikileaks, listen to what the vocal 'british Moslems' are saying, count the mosques.

But you can dismiss me as another 'rabid fascist' or you can consider the levels of frustration that causes a response such as this. Do me a favour, go back and read it again, suspend disbelief and consider that me and mine (generation) might just have a point too.

My late wife was born in South Africa of British parents. We lived out there for a short time. Griffin reminds me of Ian Smith. Smith Was a nasty piece of work. He also used to go on about his service in the RAF. His Hurricane crashing, his Spitfire being shot down. Smith was a narrow-minded bigot who promoted division and hatred. Why do these people always bring up service history ?

The British National Party worship a regime and political philosophy that would enslave the British people. The BNP offer hope to no one. They are built on hate and full of poison, they are toxic.

They also call themselves a "Christian Party". Last year they held a secret meeting in Winsford Lifestyle Centre. They booked the hall under the name of the "Christian Council of Britain". Believe me, will not be allowed to do that again.

I really don't consider that to be support to 'asshole Nazis', quite the opposite actually, because I'm willing to discuss the topic rather than rely on trotting out the normal stereotypical rhetoric.

I don't support the attacks you've mentioned on ANYONE, irrespective of who they are. What's that actually got to do with the observations I made above - it's also NOT the immigration laws at all - it's about misguided souls lining up to give up our heritage to many people who are cynically here (UK) to take, take, take and regard our country with contempt.

I wouldn't blame 'loss of heritage' on any other ethic group. it is a case that the majority of "white British" are so apathetic about our own heritage and traditions, whereas other cultures embrace their heritage and customs.

In terms of major customs, e.g. Christmas, Easter, the have become so commercialised, and I would predict that more people are interested in what is on television in the evening, than looking at either the religious significance, or even the older secular traditions.

If anything, the biggest loss of heritage, in my opinion, was in the first half of the twentieth century, with many customs being revived post-war, and I would argue that our heritage is more alive now than it was 60 years ago.

Do you really Brian.

Perhaps you would tell me to which heritage you refer?


The Pict, Scot, or Celt heritage?
The Jute heritage?
The Angle heritage?
The Dane heritage?
The Viking heritage?
The Saxon heritage?
The Roman heritage?
The Norman heritage?
The Dutch heritage?
The German heritage?

Forget about Akenaton's rather transparent red herring, because it doesn't matter how or why they arrived. What matters is that we assimilated them.

Our language is primarily composed of Latin and Greek derived words, with a smattering of all the other languages.

We don't speak French, so we must have assimilated the Normans into our culture, not vice versa, and even Dutch and German imported monarchs adapted to our culture.

Our whole history is one of adaptation and change, and we are arguably the stronger for it. The current situation is merely a step along that road. By espousing or even entertaining the views of bigots, you give credence to their disruptive ideals.

That's what the Normans thought!!!

It's a question of numbers. As more second and third generation immigrant descendants marry English spouses, the division between "us" and "them" grows more indistinct.

In the time of Richard I, it was utterly unthinkable for an English person to marry a jew, whereas now, while the Jews still practise their religion, intermarriage is not only possible, it is commonplace.

Since when did we require anybody to give up the practise of their religion to fit in?

Sorry pressed the wrong button.

This "liberal" ideology of "rights" and "equality" above all else is madness....Rights and equality are only words they never existed and never will exist especially now when we are going to be struggling to survive....will the pensioner in some sink estate who's heating bills are about to double and whose social services will be cut to the bone through the failure of a stinking greed inspired system have any rights or equality.....I dont fuckin' think so!

And you prats waffle on about the civil rights of religious fanatics who see us as weak dissolute scum; and the civil rights of sexual minorities who behaviour makes them the most unhealthy(and expensive) sections of society.

The important thing now is to recognise how we have been conned and robbed by our economic system ....and to remedy that state of affairs quickly before we are all enslaved in real terms, not just economic terms.

Darn right it is, Ake, but few want to face up to the reality of that, it seems. It's easier to keep borrowing, and assuming that if everyone pretends it's real money, it'll turn into wealth.

I'm inclined to agree with you about rights and equality too; although laudable ideals, they don't actually exist yet.
