We at NWN are receiving e-mails from BNP folk asking just why the West Midlands BNP list is headed by Simon 'Dodgy' Darby, who lives in Wales.
Darby is a rather strange individual who was a close friend of an MI5 agent, Andy Carmichael .
Everything about Darby is 'phoney'.
Darby has also been promoted to the 'second in command' position by Nick Griffin himself, above the then Deputy Chairman, Scott McClean .
Of course, Steve Batkin has been elected as a Councillor for the Stoke on Trent area on more than one occasion. The people of Stoke like the fellow, and this will just not do !
Winning elections will 'just not do' for Nick Griffin.
Mr. Griffin is in fact a liability, as far as elections are concerned, having trashed numerous previously strong BNP areas.
Mr.Griffins remit, we contend, is to trash the nationalist movement in the UK.
Since he hijacked the BNP in 1999, he has done a good job. But it's his 'behind the scenes' backers who have been succesful, not Mr. Griffin.
