“The BNP must be reformed – Support the Reform Group.”
Latest News. Archive and Links.
The Reform Group of the British National Party came into being because many members, particularly established members, were concerned by the way the Party was run.
The Reform Group gives the following points where we differ from the official party doctrine:
1. We believe the Party should have a Constitution and structure that is normal for an association. This would mean that the principal party officials would be elected and that there would be Annual General Meetings when all members could propose resolutions and vote. In particular, the Treasurer would be elected by the members and the Auditor would report to the members. There would be an end to the current ‘dictatorship’ whereby the Party Chairman appoints all officials of the Party.
2. We believe that the Party should not waste resources on fighting Euro-elections. If we won seats in these elections, the MEPs would have no power. We believe that the purpose of the BNP is to gain power. It is MPs at Westminster that have the power to make laws. All our resources should be used to gain MPs.
3. We believe that the Party should be organised as strong, semi-autonomous, local constituency associations responsible for their own funds.
4. We believe that we should make every effort to unite the various nationalist parties and encourage members who have left the BNP to rejoin. (It should be noted that the main reason for the existence of the various parties is the fact that many people could not work with John Tyndall and now with Nick Griffin. There are not great difference in policy between the groups. A new Party Chairman is required that has a rounded personality and the ability to get on with all members.)
The Reform Group mounted a Leadership Challenge in 2007. Stood aside to allow another group to stand in 2008. It is proposed that a strong challenge will be made in 2009. See Archive for details.
