Nick Griffin to step down as leader

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The British National Party’s Advisory Council (AC) and other key figures of the party’s structure have completed a weekend of forward planning to overhaul and modernise the party as Nick Griffin MEP announced his intention to step down as leader by the end of 2013 to concentrate on his re-election campaign to the European Parliament.

The extended AC meeting and strategy planning session, held in the East Midlands, also contained a full analysis of the election results, a report on current membership levels, a review of the modernising measures the party is putting in place to bring its election fighting capability up to speed and a no-holds barred presentation and question and answer session with party consultant Jim Dowson.

Mr Griffin made his leadership decision announcement at the end of the first day of the proceedings.

“By then I would have been leader of the BNP for 15 years and that is long enough,” Mr Griffin said.

“It will be time to make way for a younger person who does not have any baggage which can be used against the party.”

Mr Griffin said the timing of his move was predicated by his desire to bring about what he called the putting into place of the last “building blocks” of the BNP’s administrative and political machine.

“This is going to take at least 18 months to implement and after that I intend to hand the party over to someone who will be able to drive support up to where it can be a serious contender for power,” he said.

Mr Griffin said he would concentrate on getting re-elected to the European Parliament in the 2014 Euro elections, adding that he was sure the party could retain its two seats and add several more to the tally.

“I then intend to help the other European nationalist parties to achieve the level of sophistication which the BNP has been able to build up, because a victory for any one of these parties is a victory to all of us.”

Other news to come out of the conference included:

- Current party membership stands at just under 14,000 and is increasing by several hundred every month;

- The party membership churn rate -- the rate at which members fail to renew their membership -- has been cut from over 70 percent to less than 20 percent thanks to the efficient call centre and administrative machine the party now possesses;

- The BNP’s communication team has been reorganised and will soon be dovetailing with the revamped elections team;

- The way that the BNP fights elections is to be revolutionised. The “bloody nose” which the party received in the local elections has provided the BNP with an insight into how the Labour Party has switched to a technologically-intensive campaigning methodology, and the lessons have been learned. The BNP will also now be upgrading its systems to match that of the Labour Party and will leave the old method of election fighting behind;

The figures behind the BNP’s fundraising campaign were revealed in Jim Dowson’s presentation which was followed by an intensive question and answer session. The pertinent facts are as follows:

- The Truth Truck is owned by the BNP, contrary to internet rumour-mongers, a fact confirmed in person by the BNP treasurer who paid for the vehicle, Jennie Noble.

- Mr Dowson does not take a commission on any membership applications or other transactions which run through the call centre in Belfast, once again contrary to internet rumour-mongers.

- The Midas Consultancy has raised more that £2.6 million in donations for the BNP since January 2008, at a cost of £165,000.

“The BNP emerged from the meeting re-energised and ready for the ongoing struggle to save our nation from destruction at the hands of the old parties,” Mr Griffin concluded.

A BNPtv interview with Mr Griffin will follow shortly.

Inflation hits 5.3 pc - no savings account pays any return !


A surprise jump in inflation to 5.3 per cent means that not a single savings account on the market offers an interest rate higher than the cost of living.

Britain's millions of savers will find the value of their investments wiped out by the increase in the cost of living, financial experts said.

Not one of the 1,660 savings accounts on the market being offered by banks or building societies, including the most generous Individual Savings Accounts, offers a real rate of return of more than 5.3 per cent. This is the first time that no account has been able to match the rising cost of living, according to the personal finance website Moneynet.

The Office for National Statistics said that inflation, as measured by the Retail Prices Index jumped from 4.4 per cent in March to 5.3 per cent in April. The RPI is widely accepted as the truest measure of the cost of living because it includes housing costs.

This is the highest level it has been since 1991.

The jump, which took economists by surprise, came after consumers suffered from record prices at the petrol pumps, higher mobile phone and telephone bills, an increase in food and drink prices as well as rising mortgage rates and the cost of clothing.

Many of the increases came from tax rises announced in Alistair Darling's last budget, which pushed up the price of alcohol and vehicle duty. The restoration of VAT to 17.5 per cent has also had the effect of increasing prices on nearly all items on the high street.

The rise in the cost of living dwarfs the average increase in wages, which on average are just 1.9 per cent higher than a year ago, meaning most workers are suffering from a significant fall in their standard of living.

Though the governor of the Bank of England, Mervyn King, said that inflation would "wane over time" he admitted the timing of any fall was "highly uncertain".

Financial experts said savers were the real victim of stubbornly high inflation, which has increased for the eight consecutive months.

Ros Altman, a former adviser to the government and an experts on savings and pensions, said: "The Government keeps on saying high inflation is temporary. But anyone with a fixed saving is losing out. And savers were one of the biggest losers already from the recession."

Inflation has the effect of damaging savings, because even though the investment can increase in value, it cannot keep pace with the increase in prices on the high street.

Ms Altman said: "The effect of inflation is insidious. It creeps up on you. You think you are getting more money every year, through wage increases or interest earned on your savings, but when you go out and try to spend you money you realise you can't afford what you used to be able to.

"You end up poorer. It is as simple as that."

Any interest earned from a saving account is taxed, so a bank account now needs to offer interest of at least 6.63 per cent for basic rate taxpayers and 8.83 per cent for higher rate taxpayers to make any real return.

There is not a single saving account that offers more than 8 per cent and just one, from HSBC (LSE: HSBA.L - news) , that offers more than 6.63 per cent, but that requires people to open an account that costs a fee of £15 a month and customers have to make regular monthly deposits.

Though no bank or building society can offer an account that beats inflation there is just one product that can. It is a bond sold by the Government-run National Savings & Investment, a savings product which requires the investor to tie up their money for three years, but promises to pay out interest of one percentage point above RPI.

Andrew Hagger at Moneynet said: "In recent months more and more people are looking to savings products, but they have been hit by the double whammy of low rates and high inflation. If VAT goes up to 20 per cent they will be hit even harder."

The group that are hit the hardest by high inflation are pensioners, living on a fixed income. David Black at Defaqto, a research house that specialises in personal finance, said: "Savers are faring pretty badly, especially those older people who rely exclusively on their savings. There are lots of accounts paying just 0.1 per cent."

According to the Bank of England the average savings account pays out a mere 0.18 per cent, while the average cash ISA is paying 0.46 per cent.

Ruth Lea, the economic adviser to the Arbuthnot Banking Group, said: "Savers will be sitting on loses. And what is the small saver expected to do? Put it in shares? Well, that's pretty risky. With capital gains tax on the rise, investments as a whole have taken a turn for the worse in recent weeks."

The Consumer Prices Index, the government's preferred measure of inflation which strips out the cost of housing, also increased, climbing from 3.4 per cent to 3.7 per cent. This was a 17-month high and the third consecutive month that it has breached the Treasury's target of 2 per cent by more than a full percentage point.

As a result, Mr King, was forced to write a letter of explanation to the new chancellor, George Osborne.

He blamed higher VAT, a sharp rise in petrol costs and the weak value of the pound, which has forced up the cost of imports. He admitted "inflation has been somewhat higher than expected over the past year and the Committee is conscious that the pace and extent of the prospective fall in inflation are highly uncertain."

Most economists are hopeful that inflation has peaked and will start to fall over the next few months and that the Bank of England will not raise interest rates until next year.

Jonathan Loynes, chief economist at Capital Economist, said: "We continue to expect interest rates to stay where they are for a long time."

Tories ditched policies as fast as they listed them: 'Cameron wanted to bury party Right,' say Lib Dems

David Cameron used the coalition talks with Nick Clegg as an excuse to ditch ‘daft’ Tory policies he secretly wanted to get rid of all along – such as scrapping inheritance tax and getting rid of his pledge to rip up the Human Rights Act, it was claimed last night.

The leader of Mr Clegg’s negotiating team, new Scottish Secretary Danny Alexander, said his Conservative counterparts, led by William Hague and George Osborne, produced a list of Mr Cameron’s manifesto pledges and invited the Lib Dems to strike them out.
And Mr Cameron’s controversial policy guru Steve Hilton was reportedly delighted that the coalition had enabled Mr Cameron to ‘bury the Tory Right-wing’.

Cameron used the coalition talks with Clegg as an excuse to ditch 'daft' Tory policies he secretly wanted to get rid of all along, it was claimed last night
The disclosure of just how easily – and willingly – the Conservatives surrendered key commitments to Mr Clegg threatens to spark a backlash against the shotgun wedding between the Tories and the Lib Dems.
A shocked Mr Alexander told Lib Dem MPs: ‘The Tories are ditching policies faster than they can list them.
They pointed to them and said, “That can go, that can go.” We thought, “If they are offering up all this, is there anything they will not do?”’

The Lib Dems seized the chance to scrap some of the policies most cherished by the Tory grassroots – including abandoning their promise to grab back powers from Brussels and not to increase capital gains tax.
Senior Lib Dem Lord Greaves, who was present when Mr Alexander reported back to MPs, said: ‘We were negotiating against people like George Osborne and Oliver Letwin who have never had to negotiate a thing in their lives.
'They are privileged little rich boys. The most difficult negotiation they had was when they proposed to their wives.

The disclosure of just how easily the Conservatives surrendered key commitments to Mr Clegg threatens to spark a backlash
‘Our negotiating team said the Conservatives told them, “There is something in your manifesto we would like to concede, can you add it to your list?” and “There are some things in our manifesto that are daft which we would be delighted if you would veto”.
‘It was men against boys. They were totally out of their depth. Our people were hard-nosed negotiators.’
Lord Greaves said Tory Right-wingers would be horrified when they discovered how easily their team surrendered key policies – and how keen they were to dump them for Lib Dem policies.
He said: ‘The Tory Right-wing will be livid but they are trapped and can do nothing about it. It is an extraordinarily good deal for the Lib Dems. We got around 35 items from our manifesto agreed by the Tories.’
A fellow Lib Dem said: ‘It seemed the Tories were under strict instructions from Cameron to do a deal whatever the price. The talks were supposed to be about each party’s red lines, but the Tories forgot to bring their red marker pen with them.
‘When Nick [Clegg] told Cameron he had not ruled out a deal with Labour and that he wanted a firm pledge on PR [proportional representation voting], Cameron was back on the phone in five minutes saying, “You’ve got it.” They couldn’t wait to drop their inheritance tax cut.’
A Lib Dem frontbencher said: ‘We thought the Tories would try to strike a tough bargain. But Danny said they were easy pickings. It was as though they couldn’t wait to get shot of chunks of their own manifesto.’
Right-wing Tory MP Philip Davies said: ‘The Lib Dems are entitled to crow. Our negotiators panicked.
‘It is absurd to give them five Cabinet jobs – that’s ten per cent of their MPs in the Cabinet. They are supposed to be the junior partner. We gave away too much.
‘I get the distinct impression that David Cameron is happier with his Lib Dems than he is with some of the people in his own party.’
Former Tory Cabinet Minister Norman Tebbit warned last night: ‘David Cameron may regard the Election result as a blessing in disguise since it allows him to take the Tory Party to the Left.
‘That may please the bright young things around him who include former Labour and Liberal Democrat supporters, but not our traditional supporters. Many will stop canvassing, stop raising money and go back to running their own lives.’
Trendy Mr Hilton, who devised the much-criticised ‘Big Society’ manifesto theme, and who was responsible for the Tories’ tree logo, is said to be among those who urged Mr Cameron to make big concessions.
‘Steve has long believed the party must reposition itself and will be happy to bury the Right,’ said a source.
The Conservatives denied their team, which consisted of Foreign Secretary Mr Hague, Chancellor
Mr Osborne, Tory policy chief Mr Letwin and Mr Cameron’s chief of staff Ed Llewellyn, had caved in.
‘If you study the agreement closely, we have gained much more than they have,’ said one. ‘They have agreed not to oppose nuclear energy, got rid of their foolish immigration amnesty and made many other concessions.’
Mr Osborne is said to be among those who believe the Tories have got the best of the bargain.
‘George is convinced that this will make it easier for us to swallow up the Lib Dems,’ said one MP.

BNP members launch new site

With the recent election fall out and overall gain of just 43 votes per BNP candidate since 2005 Is it any wonder that the BNP members have had enough?

Nick Griffin handed Hodge an increased majority of 6,000 votes and his face on all the election leaflets around the country saw the BNP reduced down to just 25 sitting councillors.

Its time for change:

BNP loses all 12 seats in Barking and Dagenham council

BNP leader Nick Griffin lost out in the Barking parliamentary seat
The British National Party (BNP) has lost all 12 of its seats on east London's Barking and Dagenham Council.

Labour gained 19 wards and now has control of all 51 council seats. The party also took control of Enfield and Harrow councils from the Conservatives.

Elsewhere, the Liberal Democrats have held Sutton while the Tories have held Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea and Hillingdon Councils.

More than 6,000 candidates contested 1,861 seats in 32 boroughs.

The BNP's loss in Barking in the local elections mirrored its defeat in the parliamentary elections where Labour minister Margaret Hodge saw off a challenge by BNP leader Nick Griffin, winning by a majority of more than 16,000.

Mayoral elections

Mr Griffin came in third place, with 6,620 votes, after the Conservatives. The Labour Party has been in control of Barking and Dagenham Council since 1964.

BNP web site down-

The services to this website have been suspended.

It is with regret that I have been forced to pull this website due to several attempts of theft today with regards to design work and content owned by myself.

It is no secret that I have been in dispute with some elements of the management of the party for sometime now, but had hoped to resolve these issues ammicably and AFTER the elections.

However, due to several attempts to steal my work today and combined with the recent deliberate copyright infringement I feel I have been left with no alternative to this action and feel wholly justified in doing so.

The background of my dispute with the party can be read here:

###########################################################


Marmite-Gate: The Truth behind the Spin.

This will do doubt come as a shock to many of those that read this, particularly those who really don't want to hear it. However, I have a duty to the members and my conscience, but most of all - to my wife and children to tell the truth behind the spin. The timing of this is also a tragic shame, but I had no say in this matter, its planning, execution or its timing, as you will soon see. So please don't fall for the old "He must be a red, planted to mess up the election" chestnut. If anyone sabotaged this election, it was Jim Dowson.
Judge that for yourselves by reading on...
This whole thing was a very deliberate copyright infringement designed to create publicity and a fund raising opportunity. What's worse, is that I believe I was deliberately put in the frame and left to carry the responsibility whilst those that were responsible went to ground for four days leaving me to stew in my own fear and uncertainty.

The publicity Nick and Jim were (and still are) hoping for means nothing. What IS important is the NETT BENEFIT of that publicity, and I can show that the nett benefit was next to nothing. The website traffic hardly increased at all, the online donations and membership applications remained almost non-existent and the real broadcast bought no more traffic to the website than the 2009 EU broadcast. In actual fact, the most successful publicity the party has had in my time was without question - Question Time.

Jim Dowson and Nick Griffin will have you believe that this stunt and the repercussions were all finely tuned, worked out and that everything was all under control. The truth is that they had no idea of the severity of the situation. I was served the injunction as a named defendant and the case against me for copyright infringement appeared cut and dry. If I failed to comply with the injunction I could have faced prison. Even if I complied with the injunction I was facing a massive fine and all the legal costs and associated court fees.

The only legal representation provided to me was from the party's legal advisor on the day she realised things had gone wrong, and she was in a state of panic advising me only to deny everything. Unilever's own lawyers make reference to how panicky and stressed she was. The case against Nick was "as a representative of the party" and Nick often brags that he has no assets in his own name to be sued for. Also, the BNP is an 'Unincorporated Association, so to my knowledge, those facing the financial costs were myself directly and / or the party members.
Furthermore, in the judge's transcript it is stated that the case against me personally is solid as the broadcast was posted under my name.

Nick Griffin and Jim Dowson deliberately set out to pick this fight with Unilever - not me. I advised strongly against it. Nick proceeded to goad Unilever into action when Unilever wanted a quick settlement and seemed happy with an undertaking not to do it again. That wasn't enough for Nick, he wanted a public fight and a media circus (one that I was never given a choice in). I did not want to run the gauntlet of TV cameras and publicity for the sake of my children and wife, but I was never consulted or asked. It was the "Nick Griffin Show" - fighting the evil capitalist empire single handed in order to save the nation on our behalf, and he was not passing up the opportunity of more publicity and victimhood status. He picked this fight, not me, and certainly not Unilever.

The problem is that you will pay for it now, as could I, if not with my liberty, freedom or possible bankruptcy, but now certainly with my position as your webmaster. What a result this fight has achieved! A bloody disaster. But then it had disaster written all over it from the outset, but the £120,000 p.a. 'Industry Expert' knew better.

By now, Unilever's lawyers had their teeth in and they were not going to let go. The excuse Jim Dowson gave for this whole sorry affair was that "a third party joker" had uploaded the video, yet this was clearly contradicted by Nick and Jim Dowson in the evidence Unilever's lawyers had obtained for themselves via conversations from Nick and Jim.

Essentially, I was up the proverbial creek and expected by our Chairman and Jim "The Industry Expert" Dowson to go to court and lie through my teeth in order to bail them out of a ridiculous hole they had dug themselves into. I had warned them not to proceed, but both were insistent that this is a brilliant publicity stunt deliberately designed to create publicity (and ultimately generate funds) as was proven by the immediate fund raising appeal sent out that day. They were under the impression that it would be a breeze and that Unilever's lawyers would issue an injunction and writ for copyright infringement and then immediately back off once Nick threatened to eat a jar of Marmite on live TV. How pathetic and desperate. Perhaps if the whole thing was done legally and executed by real experts and not Laurel and Hardy, it may have worked to our political advantage.

After a weekend of worrying myself sick, with my wife in bits and to use Nick's own words - Unilever's lawyers crawling all over ME like a rash, I took the only sensible and legal option available. To tell the truth. I was not prepared to spend five years in prison for perjury just to protect the financial interests of fools. To be honest, the truth is long overdue anyway as there are a shocking amount of highly questionable shenanigans going on at BNP HQ including threats of violence against good people such as myself and the loss of jobs / contracts /positions if we don't 'Play ball'.

In short, with one of the idiots responsible for this expensive little caper laying low and sunning himself in Spain with the £120,000+ per year he is paid from your donations to pull stunts like this, and with the others laying low, I decided to protect myself and family and not carry the can for their sheer greed and incompetence or rely on their incompetent advice or inabilities, so I told Unilever's lawyers the truth. Lying to the Royal High Courts of Justice was never an option for me.

Jim Dowson constantly makes references to his Loyalist 'connections' and 'Irish murder gangs' in the hope of intimidating people and just about everyone bar me is terrified of him and lives in fear of losing their income if they cross him or do not 'put up and shut up' or turn a blind eye and deaf ear.

Unfortunately for him, I can earn more money outside of the party which renders that particular threat null and void. The physical threats of violence also back-fired on him as I refused to be intimidated, as did the bribes of 'a slice of the pie'. Jim Dowson now controls just about every aspect of the party structure (including the recently acquired print services) and also the party's finances with one exception. You've guessed it - the website!
Jim has been at loggerheads with me for over a year and has tried every trick in the book to gain control of the website so he can bolt it onto his spam-machine without any idea of how websites work. I have always been against it as I feel it should be first and foremost a political tool, not a money making machine.

He has tried undermining it with his call centre staff informing callers not to donate or join online as the website was insecure and that their £100,000 telephone system was the only secure way to join or donate. He tried bribery and Nick also tried to convince me that I'd be better protected legally from copyright infringements if the website was made into a limited company. When presented with the financial implications and costs and also the lack of protection it actually offered and further presented with the idea of not infringing copyrights in the first place, he backed down.

So, here we are today...

A deliberate copyright infringement mysteriously posted IN MY NAME! Wow, isn't that a coincidence? On Tuesday this week (27th) I had Nick on my case again insisting that in order to properly 'protect me' in future he and Jim will set the website up as a limited company after the election and I should remain just a little anonymous monkey in the background doing all the monkey work whilst they take the very noble burden of risk (and potential profit of course). Naturally, after this scare I'm bound to agree, surely?

Just imagine it... All your web donations and membership fees not just now being carved up in commission between Paul Golding, Jim Dowson, Jenny Griffin and possibly several others, all of whom do virtually or absolutely nothing to generate the funds, but now you may well have to pay legal fees, chartered accountancy fees, salaries and possibly vehicle costs, travel, stationery and no-end of other 'legitimate' Ltd. Company's business expenditure!

Here's a better idea. Stop acting like amateurs and stop blatantly breaking the law for financial gain with no political advancement. That way I could continue to develop the website at the minimal fee I charge, and apart from every man and his dog taking a 'slice of the pie', the rest at least goes directly to its intended destination. Furthermore, the website can be developed freely by a decent, honest and experienced web developer and not under the control and dictatorship of a catering-salesman with as much experience in web development as I have in rocket science!

You're the members and this is YOUR party, YOUR website and I worked for YOU, not Nick, not Jim, not Gerry Gable, not MI5, CI5, MFI or anyone else . Let the smear stories commence. This will probably all be blamed on me being a red, a mole, a spy, a state asset, or work-overload, lack of vitamins, health, state of mind, paranoia, poor diet or just plain old mental instability. Please, let me assure you all that I am none of the above or suffering from any of the above quoted inflictions. If I was it must be highly contagious, as this party has lost so many good people for the above afflictions. Funny that isn't it? It's always everyone else being a mole that's the problem- never Nick's own incompetence!

Jim Dowson has a history of copyright infringement and is not by any means an "industry expert" in any field whatsoever that I can find, as can be seen by googling his name or the Pro Life League or Precious Life UK. His only industry experience is as a 'catering salesman'. Many other marketing and fund-raising business ventures he has been involved in have ended up dissolved without ever filing accounts. With a history like that, it doesn't bode well for the future of the party really. Many of his wild claims of success can be proven as bare faced lies. He has a severe habit of exaggerating figures and then contradicting himself later on. His incompetence is almost as astounding as his arrogance. This I'm afraid to say, is the man in whom our Chairman has invested the future of our party and hopes for our country.

I tried to raise my concerns about Jim Dowson, his past and his continual bad practices and mistakes with the Chairman over a year ago. Myself, Peter Mullins and Mike Howson were subjected to what was a court style hearing in which we were told in no uncertain terms to mind our own business and if anyone picks a fight with Jim they pick a fight with him (Nick Griffin). Unfortunately, the fight was already well under way. Mike Howson, it should be pointed out, has stated since that his "guts turned to water" that day. He has been Jim Dowson's poodle ever since and with the exception of myself, just about anyone who has ever dared to cross swords with Jim have been removed from their positions, sacked or expelled. We cannot afford to lose any more good quality people only to be replaced by buffoons, morons, yes-men or those too afraid to stand up for what is right and proper.

Both Nick and Jim (and a few other gullible fools) will continuously point to the massive success and growth of the party over the "Dowson Era", but you need to look a little closer and analyse this claim or even break it down completely. Firstly, to make such a claim is a complete smack in the face for all the decent and honest activists and members that have worked their fingers to the bone and walked the streets until their feet were blistered. It also suggests that my work over the last two and half years, and our army of blogger's efforts have provided little or no gain.
The simple fact is this; In the current political climate, and with mainstream parties in disarray over immigration, the expenses scandal, global warming scams, economic disaster and a new influx of members from a new and fresh professional website with no-end of social networking you could rightly expect natural rapid growth. The growth to which Jim refers has very little, if anything to do with anything he has implemented whatsoever. All Jim has done is arrive in the right place at the right time and spot an opportunity to fleece money from good people by preying on their hopes and fears. Let's be honest here, a trained monkey could write a more professional fund raising appeal than the current "1980 Readers Digest" style begging letter we currently all have to cringe over and suffer.

Then we need to question where the money raised is being spent or invested. The vast majority of the "Admin Infrastructure" to which Jim claims to have expertly set-up is nothing more than a basic requirement to any business or organisation and one of which almost anyone with half a brain or business experience would recognise and implement easily, cost effectively and securely. The current way in which this infrastructure is organised relies on and is driven by financial gain, greed and a competitive commission based environment. Just the sort of environment I would expect from any sales-based organisation. This party is now being driven by money - not politics or ideology. This is fundamentally wrong and will prove to be our failure. Of course we need funds to survive, but when our motivations, aspirations and hopes are driven by or dictated by finances, then we are on a collision course with failure.

In the "Real World" of business, turnover means nothing, what matters is profit. Profit stems growth, product development, training and staff development. Ten million pounds of turnover is worthless if our expenditure is eleven million, as are all the offices Jim cares to open in order to impress the sheeple. Jim constantly crows about how much money we turn over, yet fails to address the profit margin, where that profit (which does not exist) is spent, and where it is invested. We are told and expected to believe that all the party finances are funnelled through Jim's shady business as no-one will deal with the party. This is a nonsense and nothing more than a smokescreen designed to stop inquisitive people questioning or looking deeper into the whole set-up.

If Nick thinks he has secured any party assets or property that has been purchased and held in the name of Jim Dowson's Adlorries Ltd by appointing his daughter as a director, then I am sorry to point out that he may just have had the wool well and truly pulled over his eyes. Jenny is a director indeed, but has no share capital whatsoever and therefore has no claim to the company's assets, finances or profits.

This party needs a clean-up if it is EVER to be taken seriously as a political force. I've started the ball rolling, it is now in the hands of the good, honest members that have the courage to face up to the facts and reality of what we are faced with. It is also up to the senior members and Advisory Council to stand up and be counted. Failure to face these issues now - and head on, will result in colossal and terminal failure. It is also in the hands of Nick Griffin to do the right thing and allow this party to develop on a solid base built on integrity, skill and transparency.
I think I can assume the Chairman will no longer be requiring my services, so all that is left for me to say is that it has been an absolute honour and a pleasure working with and for the decent and honest members, but an absolute chore, no, nightmare, working with Nick Griffin and Jim Dowson.

Everything I claim in this post can be supported by evidence. I leave you with these tasters to bring you up to speed with Jim "The Industry Expert" Dowson;

From http://www.123people.co.uk/

An Observer investigation today raises serious concerns about the operations of the LifeLeague, the militant anti-abortion group that has hijacked Britain's pro-life debate.The concerns come as it emerges that a rival pro-life organisation is considering legal action against the group's founder, James Dowson, for alleged breach of copyright.Dowson, 43, is the public face of the league. He regularly appears on television to pronounce abortion a sin. With his hard-hitting campaigns and highly provocative tactics, such as publishing the home addresses of abortion clinic staff, he ensures the league is often in the headlines. This weekend its members are out in strength, joining other pro-life organisations at demonstrations to mark the 40th anniversary of the Abortion Act.Little is known about Dowson. It is reported that he lives in Scotland and is a Protestant minister. Neither, it transpires, is strictly true. Dowson has never been ordained as a minister. And although he claims to live in Glasgow, he spends most of his time in Northern Ireland where land registry records show he owns a buy-to-let property in Comber, a small town in County Down. Dowson, his wife, Anne, and their son, James, 20, who bought a title and calls himself the Laird of Glencairn, actually live at another address in County Down, a four-bedroom semi in Ballygowan. Dowson also has a house in Cumbernauld, Glasgow, where he owns a mission hall.The LifeLeague's website pledges to spend donations 'wisely' but tracing where the money goes is difficult. Documents at Companies House show Dowson originally set up the league as a private company but it remains dormant and has never filed meaningful accounts. Instead it is run as a society, which means it only has to share its accounts with its members. 'We do not publish our accounts as that would play into the hands of the pro-abortionists,' Dowson said.Nor is it clear where the league is based. Its offices are usually listed at a service address in Piccadilly, London. But the reality is Dowson operates out of an office in east Belfast where he is also involved in a support network for victims of the Troubles.It has been alleged that Dowson, who has a tattoo bearing the words 'Abronhill Protestant Boys Flute Band', produced music cassettes during the 1990s promoting the loyalist cause. 'I was in a flute band,' said Dowson, a former member of the hardline Protestant group, the Loyal Orange Lodge of Scotland. 'But then so were thousands of other people. My enemies have stretched this to suggest I supported the paramilitaries. It's utter nonsense.'Dowson has addressed a far-right conference in London and last year he invited Nick Griffin, head of the British National Party, to Belfast. 'We invited all the parties to Belfast to explain their position on abortion,' he said.

Dowson denies he is a far-right sympathiser. 'I refuse nobody,' he said. 'I am a Christian Socialist. I find the whole of the right-wing utterly ridiculous.'Despite the league's claims that it is a large-scale organisation with thousands of members, most of its work is carried out by Dowson, his sister-in-law, Marion, and his wife.The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children, another pro-life group, is considering legal action against Dowson for allegedly using some of its literature in league campaigns. 'There is a dispute between us relating to intellectual property and it is in the hands of the lawyers,' said John Smeaton, SPUC's director. The Christian Institute also has concerns the LifeLeague has used its literature. Dowson denies the claims.

Daily Telegraph April 2nd 2006:
James Dowson does not concern himself with moral qualms.

The consequences of his inflammatory comments, he believes, are not something with which he should be unduly bothered.His stance, he says, is unequivocal: "I don't suggest - or ever condone - violence. I advocate nothing that is out with the law. I most certainly do not urge people to send abusive letters or emails to these people." (But he's pretty prolific with the abusive emails himself).The events of the past week, in which Mr Dowson and his UK Life League have been criticised in the media, have buoyed his belief that the end justifies the means. "We have got column inches, our enemies are running scared," he says.Mr Dowson sees it all as a triumph. He makes no bones about it: the name of the game is publicity. Yes, he happily acknowledges, as a Glasgow Protestant he once belonged to the Orange Order and, yes, he has two convictions (now spent) for breach of the peace.In the next few weeks, he also hopes to have a fleet of lorries on the road across the country, which he will use to picket abortion clinics. (One of which he "sold" to the BNP.)

Final Message to Nick:

Do not send your 'heavies' or ageing goon-squad to my door (as is standard practice) as I possess no party property or assets, and you know it. If you do, they will be broadcast live on video to several high profile websites. I will post the SQL dump of your website to you, as I am legally obliged to do. I will also release the domain to the TAG of your choice whenever you provide it to me. That is the end of my legal obligation to you as I have always made clear.

Armed Police end EDL rooftop protest in West Midlands ?

Riot police were in a stand-off today with ring-wing protesters who stormed the site of a planned 'super mosque'.
Two members of the far-right English Defence League scaled the roof of a derelict building in Dudley, West Midlands, yesterday waving anti-Muslim banners.
They climbed to the rooftop on Sunday evening as dozens of protesters gathered at the site after an internet campaign by the EDL.

Protest: Two members of the English Defence League wave banners and flags from the roof of a derelict building in Dudley Town Centre protesting against the building of a new mosque
That evening around 30 masked protesters were ordered off the site as fights broke out. A police officer and local teenager were taken to hospital for minor injuries after the clashes
Several EDL members clambered onto the roof of the building, which had been earmarked for the super mosque development.
The protest came just a month after 2,000 of far-right EDL protesters descended on Dudley to march against Islamic extremism.
Some bashed down metal fences, threw metal brackets at police and even fought with their own stewards who were trying to calm them down.
This morning, the men - who were dressed in balaclavas and army fatigues - remained on the roof of the old clothing factory where they unfurled banners reading 'no to the burka' and 'no mosque'.

Flag-waving: Members of the EDL wave St George's Cross and a flag supporting troops

Salute: Protesters from the English Defence League signal their support to the rooftop protesters
The EDL's website claims the protesters 'have food and water to last them weeks, and a PA system to give speeches'.
It adds: 'I believe they even have a Playstation. They will be playing the call to prayer to let those who are not bothered by this mosque know what to look forward to.'
An eyewitness said: 'They're waving England flags and blaring out Islamic music from a loud speaker.'
But this afternoon the men disappeared from the rooftop and have arrested on suspicion of having broken into the disused factory.
Chief Inspector Matt Markham from West Midlands Police said the two men were 'helping police with enquiries'.
Earlier, he said: 'We have always facilitated peaceful protests by members of the EDL and other organisations, but we do not welcome this kind of protest.
'Our priorities are to minimise any disruption to the local community in Dudley and to prevent any further incidents of disorder from occurring.
'Our message to anyone thinking of turning up with the intention of causing disorder is not to, as we have police resources available and any such activity will be dealt with swiftly and robustly.'

Unsuitable: The current mosque in Dudley
The protest came as the Dudley Muslim Association announced they were scrapping plans for the £18million mosque which have caused such controversy in the town.

The mosque, which would have been built on derelict land, would have had a 65ft minaret, and the proposals have been dogged by controversy from the beginning,
Two petitions of more than 50,000 signatures were gathered in opposition.
Residents who objected said the mosque would dominate the skyline and be out of keeping with the town’s medieval character.
They also objected to the mosque being built on land designated for employment use.
Dudley Council threw out the application in 2007, but it was granted at an appeal the following year by a government inspector.

Standoff: A Twitter picture shows a police cordon and EDL supporter, who police said were not welcome at the protest site

Support: A photograph posted on Twitter shows the high police presence and some English Defence League supporters near the site of the rooftop protest
In 2009 the council launched a High Court bid against the inspector’s decision but the judge upheld the ruling, granting outline planning permission.
Deputy council leader, Les Jones, told a local paper today that the Muslim Association had instead agreed to develop their existing site after months of delicate negotiations.
He said: 'The current mosque is not really fit for purpose and we have been working with them to come up with some plans and would have been looking to submit an outline planning application in the next few months.'
Despite claiming to have the support of Dudley residents, locals today branded the EDL protest as 'racist' and 'a waste of police time'.
Sarah Williams, 23, said: 'They're just here to cause trouble, these people, and playing that music like that is outrageous and racist. They are just asking for trouble.
'These people just want to live here peacefully.'
