BNP 'back on track' after bequests boost far-right warchest


The British National party's recovery will be of major concern to anti-far-right campaigners

NUT has worked for decades to defeat BNP and other fascist groups


The shocking revelation that a Conservative party co-treasurer offered access to the prime minister and chancellor for up to ?250,000 underscores the need for urgent reforms to clean up political party funding in the UK.
By Alex Stevenson
 
A series of bequests helped the far-right British National party (BNP)'s reported donations jump by 730% in 2012, new figures out today show.
 
Statistics released by the Electoral Commission revealed the BNP received ?265,987 in donations in 2012, compared to just ?32,000 in 2011.
 
Albert Stanmore left ?200,000 to the party, received in two separate donations in 2012, while further bequests of ?35,000 from Brian Mincherton and ?28,736.97 from Edward Hart were also received.
 
The only living donor registered was Russell Webb, who gave the party a total of ?2,250. BNP officials said the party had also "done very well" by individual members making smaller donations falling below the registration threshold.
 
Combined with an extremist victory in the European parliament, which has seen nationalist parties group together to secure around 600,000 euros of funding, Nick Griffin's party is now thought to be building up a substantial warchest.

 

The Alliance of European National Movements and its linked European Identities and Traditions group are together set to receive 604,566 euros under the preliminary funding details released earlier this month.
 
The BNP had been thought to be in financially deep waters after overspending in the European elections and 2010 general election.
 
But a spokesperson told politics.co.uk the "ship is beginning to stabilise", suggesting a number of bequests had been received which meant reports the party is in debt are "nonsense".
 
"We're doing really well," the party spokesperson said.

"Everyone's saying the BNP are in debt, but it's all nonsense, it's all historical. There's a lag with what's published.
 
"We've got money we've had to pay out. We spent a fortune in the European elections and general elections before then. We've had one or two problems following on from that. Now the ship's beginning to stabilise."
 
The Stanmore bequest came in two instalments because of the length of time it can take for funds to be released from a person's estate because of legal proceedings.
 
The BNP said it had "another couple of bequests in the pipeline".

"In the downturn, people turn to us," the spokesperson added.

"It affects people, this recession affects people. They can't avoid the political system. They're all saying 'you do politics or politics will do you'."
 
A recent report by Lewis Baston of Democratic Audit warned the Bradford West by-election won by George Galloway showed the diminished presence of the main political parties was allowing non-mainstream views of politics to emerge.
 
He suggested a political "vacuum" was emerging into which far-right extremist politics could prosper.
 
The government is hoping its integration strategy will help address the problem, providing funding for community newspapers to counter the voice of groups like the BNP and the English Defence League.
 
"We know that it is only at local level that we can really address the conditions the far right feeds on," communities minister Don Foster said in a speech in January.
 
"The far right must be isolated, undermined, outflanked and subject to the ridicule they deserve."

'Integration' 'Integration' blah blah blah, why else would you want to integrate immigrants unless it was to ethnically cleanse the REAL brits? The white folk leaving London because it feels like a foreign country where too often you speak to someone and they don't understand your language...London is dead, it commited suicide, or rather destroyed by the government.

Proves that the likes of searchlight, Hope Not Hate and most of the media have been telling lies about the BNP finances.Really calling the BNP extremists is getting quite boring. Don't see them causing trouble on the streets and chantting death threats like Jihadists and the UAF were doing at Cambridge yesterday!

I like forward to the day when all these political traitors are put on trial for the genocidal policies that they have forced on the indigenous british people. That's what's really worrying the far left and elites.

Too true, that's the only reason they kick the can down the road, they know what they've done is wrong, but of course rather than man up and tell it how it is they only care about their money, their career and themselves. And foolish ignorant people still buy into this madness because of flashy TV commercials sayin 'Multiculturalism and interracial marriage is better' of course, they don't give us any evidence and points as to WHY it is better, but prefer to say 'oh it's sooo different and...and nice' yeah okay, that is what tourism is for, it still doesn't benefit anyone in the long term, diversity is kind of a big factor when talking about the fall of some great nations in the past(violently fell I might add). DO we want violence and destruction of our next generation? Not us, only the anti-whites do.

The very reason that The BNP exists is down to the fact that all parties have been frightened from looking into the immigration problem by the misguided politically correct brigade.

BTW why do you persist using an antiquated BNP logo knowing full well it is not the current one?

Reading that politics.co.uk report again I've been struck by the following piece:
 
The government is hoping its integration strategy will help address the problem, providing funding for community newspapers to counter the voice of groups like the BNP..
 
In other words using public money to create dummy newspapers and phony websites passing themselves off as genuine community news sources when all along they are just designed to prop up the "mainstream" parties by trying to surreptitiously poison the electorate against their political opponents.
 
The Times will also be running the donations story as will the Independent. Both are rather unhappy that BNP have been left such a large sum of money, so stand by for some smears.

Whoopie doo. Seems the best way to donate to these Neanderthals is when you have died. BNP have nothing to offer this country. If your only idea is that if its not white it is out of order then it shows how little these numpties get out. Or perhaps are let out. Still using crayons are we? Britian will never elect such far right and racist ideas. Multiculturalism is here to stay.. Get used to it.

I think you will find that you're the bigoted numptie Ian as we are not talking about other races.
 The BNP has moved on and is now talking about preserving the indigenous british identity.

What they can offer is Independence from the Tyrannical political state that is the EU(Empire). I guess you won't mind having British youth becoming minority and prey like the whites in south Africa being raped and killed every day, either you're anti-white or just non-white, so I wouldn't expect you to care. What you suggest is another Yugoslavia, and it is already happening with the rise of genital mutilation in Britain of young kids, when has genital mutilation been a part of British culture I wonder? Nope, never heard of it.
