The Lost Leader: a poem by Robert Browning (A Tale of Modern Leadership)

By Nemesis

I recently found this poem by the nineteenth-century poet Robert Browning. It is bizarrely premonitional of the disgraced BNP Chairman Nick Griffin and our own current relationship with him that it could even be suggested that it was written specially for Griffin.

The Lost Leader by Robert Browning

Just for a handful of silver he left us,
Just for a riband to stick in his coat –
Found the one gift of which fortune bereft us,
Lost all the others she lets us devote;
They, with the gold to give, doled him out silver,
So much was theirs who so little allowed:
How all our copper had gone for his service!
Rags – were they purple, his heart had been proud!
We that had loved him so, followed him, honoured him,
Lived in his mild and magnificent eye,
Learned his great language, caught his clear accents,
Made him our pattern to live and to die!
Shakespeare was of us, Milton was for us,
Burns, Shelley, were with us – they watch from their graves!
He alone breaks from the van and the freemen,-
He alone sinks to the rear and the slaves!

We shall march prospering – not through his presence;
Songs may inspirit us, – not from his lyre;
Deeds will be done, – while he boasts his quiescence,
Still bidding crouch whom the rest bade aspire:
Blot out his name, then, record one lost soul more,
One task more declined, one more footpath untrod,
One more devils’-triumph and sorrow for angels,
One wrong more to man, one more insult to God!
Life’s night begins: let him never come back to us!
There would be doubt, hesitation and pain,
Forced praise on our part – the glimmer of twilight,
Never glad confident morning again!
Best fight on well, for we taught him – strike gallantly,
Menace our heart ere we master his own;
Then let him receive the new knowledge and wait us,
Pardoned in heaven, the first by the throne!

The following lines are so relevent for Griffin and how many of the BNP membership relate to the current regime:

"Just for a handful of silver he left us,"

(Griffin's intention is to get a lucrative job as a Euro MP and leave the BNP with his guilt-edge pension. Apart from his ransacking of the BNP for personal and family gain).

"They, with the gold to give, doled him out silver,So much was theirs who so little allowed:"

(BNP members are known for their self-sacrfice with their hard-earned money given to the BNP cause yet in return they are treated with contempt and what little democracy they have within the party is increasingly being removed from them by Griffin).

"We that had loved him so, followed him, honoured him,Lived in his mild and magnificent eye,Learned his great language, caught his clear accents,Made him our pattern to live and to die!Shakespeare was of us, Milton was for us,Burns, Shelley, were with us – they watch from their graves!He alone breaks from the van and the freemen,– He alone sinks to the rear and the slaves!

(Many BNP members had such great faith in Griffin and his leadership and believed his lies for so long. A loyalty towards Griffin that knew few bounds has been rewarded by being bitterly twisted against them to save his own financial empire. Browning must have also known that Griffin only possesses one eye!)

"We shall march prospering – not through his presence;Songs may inspirit us, – not from his lyre;"

(However, BNP members shall continue fighting the cause long after their traitorous leader has abandoned them in the struggle, its members leading from the grassroots rather than from the 'vision' and 'inspiration' of its crooked leader Griffin who regards as critics as 'vermin').

"Blot out his name, then, record one lost soul more,One task more declined, one more footpath untrod,"

(This refers to the erasure of Griffin's traitorous leadership regime, marked by the notable fact that Griffin tended to refuse fighting the real enemy and always fought his own people first. He always baulked at financing and organising the BNP as a fully-fledged political fighting machine, perferring to accumulate wealth and despotic power first and foremost).

"Life’s night begins: let him never come back to us!There would be doubt, hesitation and pain,Forced praise on our part – the glimmer of twilight,Never glad confident morning again!"

(These four lines of Browning's poem says it all succinctly about Griffin and his leadership. Although the darkness of betrayal is a hard thing to take, BNP members will strive to continue the struggle and to rebuild a new party without the stigma of the rotten and corrupt Griffin regime. Despite the setbacks the darkness will soon be replaced by the light of a new dawn of hope and of victory!)

With revelation after revelation coming out that demonstrate the corruption and despotic nature at the heart of the 'Griffin Project' it is now harder for this man to survive long at the heart of the BNP machine.

Nick Griffin must now fall on his sword.

However, that man has no honour and no moral compulsion to do so.

He will only be removed by force in four ways:. Either an 'Ides of March' coup by disgruntled officials and senior members working together to unseat him. Or a Police investigation into financial corruption.

Or a mass reaction by the membership resigning or not paying contributing financially or working for the party.

Or a legal challenge into his constitutional rigging of the party.

The time for change is now.

Whatever is decided at Griffin's already fixed Special Conference to revise the timescale for leadership challenges the fight must go on.

All those opposed to Griffin must sooner or later organise.

There has been precious little of that in recent months and no co-ordination.

Without co-ordination and a concerted focussing of strength at Griffin's weakest points the chances of success are low.

Since we are dealing with an individual whose megalomania is apparent and who will stop at nothing the fight must be relentless and unforgiving.

It must be backed up by serious money and a serious framework of legal challenges ready to be mounted against the regime if Griffin changes the rules at any time.

Those at the top of the regime who continue to support and aid Griffin and the rest of the Mugabesque cabal must be aware that blood will be unleashed when the Real BNP take back its party.

There must be no mercy and no hesitation. This time the stakes are too high.

The only viable political vehicle of British nationalism is under threat of self-destruction by an irresponsible and mad Dr Frankenstein who wishes to recreate the BNP into a monster of his own image.

Without a secure and effective BNP the survival of our race and nation is at stake. This is Survival of the Fittest.

Are you ready to stand up and be counted?

Dave Howard/Yorkshire Loyalist has been doing his nut over there on SF and VNN.

Howard is one of Griffins telephone threateners from the CUNT duo of Ronnie & Reg.

NWN have you still got that pic of him leaving a police station all masked up ?

As soon as Griffin goes I will re-join, (well I assume I will be allowed) and I will be back working my patch like before.

I was like, what I suppose 99%of BNP members and officials are like, in that I was not interested in climbing up the political ladder, I was happy to take a back seat when someone more able came along, or equally I was happy to stand up and fight and put my self on the firing line when needed, just for the love of my nation and children’s future.

But of course I made the ultimate sin, I criticised God Himself, so had to go, with no way back.

I just wonder how many like me are there out there. Willing to give everything to the cause, but unable to because they have been proscribed from the party, or due to them having decent moral standards far above Griffin find themselves wrestling with the guilt of wanting to be out in the streets leafleting etc, but unable to because they know they will be supporting lies and corruption and the most cardinal sin of all lying to the voters.

The very people who we as the BNP are supposed to be promising the truth.

I just wish people would wake up to this man and what he is doing. He is killing our nation, just as much as Harriet Harman is with he pro ethnic stuff you Brits policies.

I wish people start posting with proper identities, no anon anymore,

have the gut's folks, its not like we are being asked to go over the top and meet our death (although if we don’t act our kids might face this) all we are being asked or need to do is put our names to our posts to show Griffin that we are the British National Party and British people not him, we either take our party back and turn it along normal party lines. Albeit we will be different because we will install the virtues of honesty, openness, and integrity.

Without this our children are doomed. Go On folks have the guts.

The Below is taking from Darby's blog

---------------------------------You see know we are in effect promoted to the major league of British politics we really must start filtering out some of the inhabitants of the detrital layer of the British political system with which we engage. I am sure I do not have to spell it out but rather than deal and spend time conversing with those very much below us we really ought to start aiming a little higher. No self respecting Premiership football team would even contemplate sharing a pitch with a Sunday league side, but BNP members seem to do this on a routine basis. By trying to make my point I'm in danger of actually falling into the trap myself, but I hope you all understand what I am referring to when I tell you all that you are now promoted.


What does he mean, I think a large chunk of this is directed toward the ex BNP and Current that are unhappy with Griffin. It seems to be some sort of mind trick being played on the Griffinites that may be wavering or waking up that they should ignore those below them i.e us.
As per usual Darby then appears to try the I am human touch. By going on about bloody birds and seaside trips.
The more I read Darby the more I think he is state, does he really provide a function for the BNP, its not as if he is pushing himself forward in campaigns etc to get the BNP some media spotlight

Yes, we have got a pic of Howard 'masked up'.

We also know he has many criminal convictions and is Griffins internet presence on Stormfront. using the tag Yorkshire Loyal.

The 'cunts' duo are Griffins thug group and will be losing their jobs in the very near future.
