Nick Griffin to stand in Barnsley Central





Without a doubt Mr.Griffin will 'parachute' himself in and stand in this forthcoming by-election. That is what he does.


Disgraced Eric Illsley said today that he was quitting as an MP after being convicted of dishonestly claiming more than £14,000 in expenses.

The Member for Barnsley Central said he 'deeply, deeply' regretted his actions and would be resigning before his sentencing next month.

In a statement issued by his office, Illsley said: 'I would like to apologise to my constituents, family and friends, following my court appearance, for the distress and embarrassment caused by my actions that I deeply, deeply regret.

'I have begun to wind down my parliamentary office, following which I will resign from Parliament before my next court appearance.

The announcement came 24 hours after David Cameron and Ed Miliband called for him to resign his seat and trigger a by-election.
Commons Leader Sir George Young was expected to ask for an emergency vote on forcing the Barnsley Central MP out of the Commons if he failed to fall on his sword.
Government sources said the move would have happened ‘swiftly’ – even before Illsley is sentenced next month.

The procedure was last used in 1954 when Conservative MP for South Norfolk Peter Baker was jailed for forgery.

Illsley was due to stand trial at Southwark Crown Court in London.
But the 55-year-old changed his pleas on three charges of false accounting relating to three years of expenses for his second home in London.
Illsley had previously denied dishonestly claiming a total of more than £25,000. But yesterday his barrister, William Coker QC, said his client admitted wrongly claiming a revised sum of about £14,500.
The claims were made for council tax, telephone usage, service charges and maintenance, and insurance and repairs at his second home in Kennington, South London, between 2005 and 2008.
In a five-minute hearing, the MP sat in the dock rubbing his face. He spoke only to confirm his pleas, saying ‘guilty’ to the three charges.

Nick Griffin is the modern day version of Billy Graham i can hear the BNP begging bowel rattling already for this one.

It would be better if Brons or Chris Beverley contest that seat, they live in the area. It's a gamble for Gri££in if he stood in Barnsley and came away with a poor result, it would reflect on his leadership! Also a lot depends on tonight's vote in Oldham.

Our only hope is economic ruin. Better our race than wealth.the latter can always be replaced.The political route is a non entity people are literally voting for their own demise,when the shit hits the fan and which it will as outgoings are exceeding incomings at an alarming rate then we see people start to wake up,its only a matter of time.Theres only one show in town at the minute and thats the EDL dont believe all the bollocks about it being a state set up as i left the BNP to become a major player when we launched as the wheels were going backwards under griffin.We are the homeguard here ready and waiting to protect our people and the survival of our race and nation.

UKIP saved their deposit last night in Oldham (5.8%) Gri££in's stooge Adams lost his deposit
(4.4%) in a town with a lot of problems, where we should have done a lot better.

In a town like Oldham with serious social and race problems we should have got a hugh vote not 1,560
4.4%, something is very wrong with the current leadership, I would how Gr££in will spin this one? In the last General Election the BNP saved its deposit with 5.7% of the vote and 2,546 votes. The BNP polled 5,091 votes which was 11.2% back in 2001.

I would put any money on that Griffin doesn't contest Barnsley after last night's result, he will put up another stooge.

Griffin is keeping very quiet about yesterday's election result, nothing on the main BNP website.

Has it come to this ? What NF marches used to look like............
