Word has reached us the Mr Edward Butler has been promoted to a newly created title within the BNP and that he now occupies the position of ‘National Organiser’. But, before we congratulate him on what appears to be a promotion that in political terms makes him second in command, we offer a sound word of warning.
History has shown that Mr Griffin only awards promotions and accolades to those he will readily chop 3 years from now, and such a position will put Mr Butler in the firing line of blame and the egotistical struggle of the various branches and groups the length and breadth of the country.
In light of this one is left wondering if Mr Griffin has done this on purpose to elevate Butler toward the exit door rather than to greater power, and given that Mr Griffin named Edward Butler along with the Wingfields as possible suspects for the leaking of the BNP list, the former would be far more attractive to anyone betting at Ladbrokes.
We’d like to wish Mr Edward Butler well in his new position, but something tells us that 2011 will be a year to remember in more ways than one.
