Griffin has secured a severance package. We'll elaborate on those details soon.
The following are numbered mini reports from our many NWN posters;
1, Griffin was defeated 60/40 and at one point was seen consulting his father, Edgar Griffin.
2, He was verbally opposed by, Barnbrook, Butler, Collett, Walker, Jackson, Tyndall, Beverly, Edmunds, and Kemp.
3, Colgate who was tabled to speak, left her membership card at home, and was told by Griffin that she couldn't speak, and couldn't vote. Hannam also left his card at home.
4, The NPD were at RWB with there own stall, they were selling portraits of Hess, and declared themselves as "left wing nazis". I was shocked that Griffin allowed them there, I won't be attending RWB again.
5, It was interesting to see Griffin defeated for the first time since he took power in 1999. The members showed he was not above the party, and wasn't the party, but simply one of its officers, and that is just as it should be.
6, NWN was being blamed by Darby and Griffin for alerting the members and keeping them informed. Kemp even mentioned it on stage as "Not allowing the Internet to influence BNP members". Good work NWN
7, Martin Wingfield didn't vote, he left early.
8, It was Arthur Kemp who suggested the 5% of membership, proving the whole thing was fixed by Griffin.
9, Griffins greed in going for 4yrs means the following
1, The advisory council can whenever they wish impeach the Chairman for misconduct with 2/3rds in favour
2, At every AGM 20 voting members can demand a leadership challenge
3, The 5% ammendment thrashed out between Edmunds and Griffin could quite easily be reached when you consider that very few last 2YRS in the BNP
Keep your mini reports coming, we're not asking for thousands of words, just a brief outline of what caught your eye.
