Marlene Guest – a great fighter for England and for the future of our children

The many ex-BNP activists in our audience will be greatly saddened to hear of the death of our comrade Marlene Guest.

A long-standing community campaigner in her native Rotherham, Marlene played a key role in the BNP’s ten year campaign to expose and halt Muslim grooming of vulnerable girls in Yorkshire. She also has the distinction of securing the party’s highest ever place in a parliamentary by-election with her third place in Rotherham in November 2012.

Like so many of her compatriots, Marlene was born into a mining family at a time when memories were still scarred by the terrible losses among the miners who volunteered as soldiers or tunnelers in World War One.

Although she married and raised 5 children, Marlene also worked most of her life, including in a factory using asbestos, which was the eventual cause of her long battle both with lung cancer and for compensation for the fact that her illness was not spotted by an incompetent doctor (no prizes for guessing!)

While she grew up in a traditional Labour household, Marlene became increasingly disillusioned with the out-of-touch corruption that had poisoned a once great party. She joined the Liberals and became a tireless and high-profile campaigner for her local community and against Labour corruption. Indeed, her constant ferreting and publicising of inconvenient facts which led to two senior Labour councillors being jailed for fraud.

Having been approached by local families whose young teenage daughters were being sexually abused by gangs of second generation ‘British’ Pakistanis, Marlene began a characteristically thorough investigation into the problem. She soon found out that it was both widespread and resolutely ignored by the police, media and social services in her home town.

Angered and frustrated, when news broke in 2004 the BNP campaign on the issue in Lancashire and especially West Yorkshire, Marlene immediately joined the party.

Throwing herself into activism, and specialising in getting powerful letters published in the local paper, Marlene built an effective local organisation which went on to get three BNP councillors elected and to push Labour a close second in many other seats, including her own. All this while also becoming a popular speaker at BNP meetings all over the north of England.

Marlene would often include in her passionate speeches one or two of her own poems. The most famous of these, England my England, went on to become an underground Internet classic. Marlene was tickled pink when various do-nothing armchair warriors claimed that they had written her poem!

In the 2010 General Election, Marlene took a whopping 10.4% of the vote in her home town.

As the BNP’s success drew down upon in the fury, hostility and well-funded subversion of the entire Establishment, Marlene was saddened by the resulting divisions but kept the faith nevertheless. When the local MP, Denis MacShane, resigned in 2012, citing Marlene and the BNP’s campaign

against his corruption (he was later jailed for fiddling his expenses) as the key factor, she immediately agreed to stand.

Despite the fact that by this time the relentless media promotion of Nigel Farage pushed UKIP into second place, Marlene still secured 8.4% of the vote and came third, winning more votes than the Tory and LibDem candidates combined.

Although deeply shocked by the turn of events in the BNP last year, and being very worried about the party’s obvious rapid spiral of decline in the second half of the year, Marlene remained a member.

“I spoke to her a few weeks before Christmas,” reports Nick Griffin, “and despite being very breathless and tired from her long and bravely-borne illness, she was still full of fire and passion in her desire for justice for the thousands of victims of Muslim grooming and Establishment betrayal in Rotherham and beyond.”

“No obituary can begin to do justice to Marlene. Perhaps the best we can do is to let Marlene speak her for herself in a poem that will surely keep circulating and inspiring new fighters for our Cause for many years to come:

England my England – by Marlene Guest

Goodbye to my England , So long my old friend

Your days are numbered, being brought to an end

To be Scottish, Irish or Welsh, that's fine

But don't say you're English, that's way out of line.

The French and the Germans may call themselves such

So may Norwegians, the Swedes and the Dutch

You can say you are Russian or maybe a Dane

But don't say you're English, not ever again.

At Broadcasting House the word is taboo

In Brussels it's scrapped, in Parliament too

Even schools are affected. Staff do as they're told

They must not teach children about England of old.

Writers like Shakespeare, Milton and Shaw

The pupils don't learn about them anymore.

How about Agincourt, Hastings , Arnhem or Mons ?

When England lost so many of her very brave sons.

We are not Europeans, how on earth can we be?

Europe is miles away, over the sea

We're the English from England , let's all be proud

Stand up and be counted - Shout it out loud!

Let's tell our Government and Brussels too

We're proud of our heritage and the Red, White and Blue Fly the flag of Saint George or the Union Jack

Let the world know -
