The latest news is that Paul & Lynda Cromie have gone Independent in their Councillor status. These two were thought to be staunch Griffinites, but now seems they have had enough of Griffin.
It has taken a while though for people to see Nick Griffin for what he really is. Years ago he took all the credit for the surge of support from local activism and the Oldham & Burnley riots of 2001.
Griffin and his spin machine said it was all Griffin's doing that had propelled the BNP into centre stage. We here at NWN knew what Griffin was and what he was up to. That is why we set up NorthWestNationalists (NWN) in opposition to Griffin in 2001.
The State through Cmdr. John Grieve of Scotland yard said "we would close down the BNP using any means at our disposal" in January 1999. Immediately after, Nick Griffin threw his challenge in to take control of the BNP, which he did in late 1999.
Griffin has now done what John Grieve promised the State would do starting in 1999.
For many a year we had the dirt and brickbats thrown at us by the Griffinites.
