Efforts by a small extremist clique of malcontents to create a crisis within BNP ranks have ground to a halt.
The exposure of the extremist clique’s email hacking - which has gone on for a long period of time, and their gross betrayal of BNP activists’ trust, have made a mockery of their claims of moral outrage after a Skype conversation, stupidly broadcast over the Internet (presumably either by a Skype setting error on their part, or even sitting on a mobile phone) made its way into the public domain. In reality, the only people carrying out illegal tapping of other peoples’ communications, were the extremist clique themselves.
All BNP email account holders have, as a result, been instructed to change all their passwords to protect themselves from further hacking by this dishonest clique, or to close down their BNP accounts and open new ones with other providers.
As the media, and particularly the Guardian newspaper, have now indicated that they will be trying to exploit the situation created by the treasonous behaviour of this clique, the party leadership finds it necessary to dispel the single most important false rumour being spread on the Internet, namely that the party is facing some sort of mass membership revolt. Nothing could be further from the truth, as a round-up of the regions shows:
Scotland: The Regional Sectary, Gary Raikes, has confirmed that there remains a loyal hard core of party members in Scotland who do not support the actions of the ringleaders in that region;
Ulster: No resignations, the only one there has reversed his decision; Wales: There have been no resignations, and Nick Griffin is tonight speaking with key officials in the region to shed full light on the affair;North East: There has been one individual resignation, but the rest of the region is entirely loyal and is functioning as per normal;North West: Five resignations, all branches functioning normally;
West Yorkshire: Currently this region is divided, but, once the full facts of the illegal tapping of emails, and the full extent of the year-long attempts to disrupt the party are laid before the membership, the party is confident that the clique will be decisively beaten. A meeting is scheduled for tomorrow evening in this regard;
West Midlands: No resignations. The clique reported that Mark Payne, former regional treasurer, had resigned. Mark has confirmed that this is untrue and that he rightly regards the decision of the clique to use the far left in their attempts to further their own ambitions, as completely unforgivable;
East Midlands: Following a meeting in Leicestershire, the majority of party activists have decided that no matter what, it is business as usual for the region. The revelations of the illegal email hacking have severely undermined support for the clique;
Eastern Region: Two resignations, both of them being part of the original clique, including the former web editor who will be reported to the police for the illegal hacking of BNP email accounts;
London: No resignations, all groups and branches totally loyal.
South East: There has been one resignation, and, after the revelations of the email hacking, even that person has indicated he no longer wishes to be involved with the clique;
South West: No resignations, all branches and groups have seen through the attack and are totally loyal;
In addition, it has been confirmed that the following people, who initially supported the clique, have seen through the deception and have withdrawn their resignations:
Rob Walker — Wellingborough & East Northants Contact;
Kieran Dinsmore - Ulster;
Andrew Gatward — West Lindsay organiser.
The party hopes that this unpleasant episode will soon be at an end and activists can concentrate on the real business of saving Britain.
