Conflicting reports on the B.N.P. Membership ban.




Griffarage says that the ban has been lifted.
The Grauniad snoozepaper says that it is still in force.
Which is true?

“The British National party (BNP) has been barred from taking new members after a judge ruled today that its constitution could discriminate against non-white people.

Judge Paul Collins issued an injunction ordering the far-right group to comply with race equality laws, adding that “the membership list will have to be closed until then”.”

    Both the BBC and Channel 4 reported on their 7pm news bulletins that the membership ban is still in force until the party complies with the law.It's clear from an interview with Griffin that he has exercised he power he was voted to amend the constitution without further reference to the membership and has total caved in to the EHRC.However, he may have jumped the gun in lifting the ban on new memberships and could be in contempt of the judge's ruling since the amended amended constitution has not yet been presented.

    At one stroke of the pen Griffin has sign it all away, any drug-dealing, pro-immigration Communist Negro and his slag Race-mixing prostitute girlfriend can join the party and nobody can say anything again them. There is no worry about Griffin being in contempt of court he has sold us all out, Lock, Stock & Barrel!!!!!'Mr Griffin claimed he had used his authority to alter the wording of the constitution to remove the obligation on applicants to adhere to the principles of the party. He said: "Section 4, which deals with the requirements for membership and includes the demand that members support all the principles of the party, is not protected."I have, therefore, with immediate effect changed the section 4 requirements, as I am entitled to do, to comply with the court order. What this means is that people can apply to join the BNP without having to endorse and support the principles of the party." A spokesman for the Equality and Human Rights Commission, which brought the case against the BNP, said: "We will be monitoring the situation. They need to ensure they comply with the terms of the court order fully otherwise they will be in contempt." ,http://www.google.com/hostednews/ukpress/article/ALeqM5gFDwGiddznG6XtwhPWs1O0Yl3cAA

    Although Griffin's solicitors are Gilbert Davies & Partners he was using another lawyer behind the scenes, guess who's? Mr Dowson's in Ulster. Who every this legal person is they gave Gri££in duff advise. I hear through the grapevine that other people in the party leadership weren't happy with this arrangement, as they were left out of the loop. It's created a very bad feeling at the top of the BNP. I would like to know the name of Dodgy Dowson's solicitor? Griffin was spotted on several occasions during the court hearing suddenly running out into the corridor to speak with this person on his mobile. It's alleged that this legal person draughted the new constitution?

    This has just appeared on the Daily Mirror's website, Griffin may be pulling a fast one to recruit new members over the weekend, while the courts are shut, and when is 'deliberate' error is made public, he will put out a statement that he 'misunderstood' the Judge's order, and when the courts open on Monday morning he may be forced to close membership again?"British National Party leader Nick Griffin declared applications to join were being processed again despite a court order banning recruitment of new members.In a landmark ruling, Judge Paul Collins issued an injunction against the far-right group stating its constitution was illegal…"

    "Cherchez la femme. You'll find her in Oxfordshire."So I hear. She's a pleasant woman, but naive enough to believe in Gri££o. She is terrified of being outed as a BNP supporterLuckily for her, I am of better moral character than Gri££o, so won't do to one of his supporters what he would do to one of his factional opponents with malicious glee . . . such as publish a letter that I have from her!

    It's odd that the other BNP story today was the lifting on the ban of teachers being BNP members, was this some type of cover to soften the blow later in the day?

    Anon 19:48 is being disingenious. If s/he wants to use Griffin's quotes from the website, best to copy it all, else it will be a tad misleading. Most importantly, refer the 2nd, 3rd and 4th paras below:“I have, therefore, with immediate effect changed the section 4 requirements, as I am entitled to do, to comply with the court order,” Mr Griffin continued.“What this means is that people can apply to join the BNP without having to endorse and support the principles of the party.“Everyone knows this is a mad situation, and it has set an astonishing and extremely dangerous precedent for all parties.“It is a complete subversion of democracy and is in reality an attempt by the state to order the citizenry what policies they can or cannot believe in.“The bottom line is that the BNP’s policies remain exactly as they were, particularly the demand for an end to mass immigration…"The >real< story here is the way this govnt and it's tax-payer funded quangos have over-ruled, by force of money, power and priviledge, the pre-existing democratic rights of this nation.That the MSM fail to mention this is not unexpected. That nationalists refuse to do so is astonishing.

Considering that Griffarage lied to the members to raise funds with which to fight this case and then caved in, I wouldn't be surprised if people refused to donate any longer, in fact I know a few people who won't donate any longer.It's expected that the establishment will come up with crap like this by knowledgable nationalists, what isn't expected is that the leader of our supposed best hope the B.N.P., has shown himself to be a spineless weakling who is easily pushed around by the powers that be, as has happened!It's time for people to turn on the radio and tune into sanity F.M.

    At the time of his Leeds Crown Court trial I remember Griffin saying that he was prepared to go to jail for his principles. He even said he would welcome it because it would give him time to write his biography.I can only assume that his 'principles' have now changed and that he is no longer a nationalist – if he ever was, that is.

    could it be possible that griffo is going for the 'martyr' ticket? jimbo knows that a jailed griffo is worth more than the life membership plan,and it brought 500k into the pot.i can see clearly now the plan and i bet i know who is behind it.

    Griffin is in contempt of court by opening up the membership this weekend, I should imagine that an injunction will be served on him by Monday? The reason Griffin is trying to jump the gun is he wants to sign up that Asian Rag-head in time for him to contest a seat on May 6th and also wants to get more subs in fill his coffers. The judge will not look to kindly on him, but that fact that he is not appealing will probably mean he will only get a fine? This below is from The Times today"The BNP will have to inform its members of any changes by Monday, and then meet the order to the court’s satisfaction before it can accept new members.Mr Griffin said that he would not appeal against the ruling, a decision that may prove unpopular with the hard core of his party. The commission said that it doubted whether Mr Griffin had the power to make such changes without consulting BNP members. It indicated that it would take the party back to court if it did not remove the offending clauses in the constitution. An injunction was placed on the far-right party preventing it from accepting new members until it complied with race relations laws. The BNP is also likely to be financially crippled after Judge Paul Collins ordered costs against it."

    "The commission said that it doubted whether Mr Griffin had the power to make such changes without consulting BNP members. It indicated that it would take the party back to court if it did not remove the offending clauses in the constitution."The commission is talking crap. Griffin has introduced a new clause in the constitution which gives him sole power to change the constitution where the wording of the document is found to be in breach of existing statutes. He doesnt need to consult the membership just tell them that he has made the changes, which is what was in the BNP statement yesterday. He has single handedly amended the document so that it is now legal.This tells us two things:1. The BNP is not just another political party; it is actually the most undemocratic political party in the UK with Griffin the sole determiner of its course.2. If the BNP rolls over and submits to the EHCR and the courts on this, then there is no hope that the BNP (under Griffin) will resist any futher erosion of what remains of our freedoms and has no role to play in securing a future for OUR people.This drama could and should have been spun out for years the BNP and lawyers could have used all kinds of legal issues to delay and obfuscate the process; instead it has been done and dusted in less than 5 months; an extraordinarily short time for any legal action. Griffin wants his cake and eat it. He claims the court decision was a bad day for democracy and of course it is; it is absurd that any political party cannot deny membership to people who disagree or are violently opposed to it. So logically Griffin should have appealed and continue to appeal right through to the Supreme Court and ironically the European Court as well. His failure to appeal is obvious demonstration to all he is happy with the decision and will hope that their is some sympathy vote out there. On this issue he is hopelessly optimistic. People have spoken to me on this issue, knowing I am BNP (ex-BNP to be correct) and expressed their disappointment with the way Griffin has failed to stand his ground. Anger at the Labour government has quickly spread to annoyance and disappointment at the lack of any proper challenge to the EHRC. This is the one key body that daily works to destroy the British people and this is the one monster Griffin should have slain.Griffin has shown himself to be a pathetically hopeless optimist that he glean some sympathy and above all a worthless self-serving inept coward. The quicker that spineless bast4rd has a nervous breakdown and has to stand aside and be replaced the better our people might have a thin chance of surviving as the largest ethnic group in our own country. We wont survive with a yellow bellyed c4nt like him claiming to be at the defence of our people.

    Agreed Griffin has given himself sole control. (the exception being the protected clauses in the constitution, according to him)However if he HAS TO INFORM THE MEMBERSHIP before the changes take effect, then he's in contempt of court. He certainly couldn't have informed all of the membership of the changes because the opening of the membership was only announced on the net, not all members have the net. There hasn't been time to send every member a letter, because he announced the re-opening of the membership straight away (this was to get the funds flowing again to pay the fine, apparently a £12,000 interim payment needs to be made shortly).Our thoughts, if this is correct about THE MEMBERS NEEDING TO BE INFORMED BEFORE CHANGES BECOME EFFECTIVE then he is now in contempt of court. This puts the establishment in a tricky position if they go for him on Monday this will create some sympathy for Griffarage and may backfire on them. The flip side of the coin, if Griffarage is in contempt then won't the court be able to seize any new membership fees that have been collected over the weekend? He's already publically said that 515 new members have joined.All supposition at the moment, we will know more on Monday, as always, time will tell.

    Griffin can't change the write protect parts of our constitution, I think the EHRC's barrister got a bit confused. Griffin changed section 4 of our constitution in court on Friday to fit in with their demands, but he can't change the party's principles in section 3.2.1 & 3.2.3. Now any old Wog can join up now, but doesn't have to agree with these two parts of section 3 to be a member. Hopefully Griffin will publish online the new revised 12th Constitution on Monday afternoon and all will be clear?

    This was put out by Griffin, thankfully even he can't touch section 3. Even though 3.2.2 was taken out at the EGM."In an email to supporters last night (Friday), Nick Griffin confirmed that he has removed controversial "Section 4" membership amendments to the constitution that require applicants to demonstrate commitment to BNP policies like an opposition to mass migration, integration and mixed marriages. Griffin writes that he makes this move with regret, that he believes it meets the requirements of the court order,"

    Griffarage is a lying devious manipulator, he has wanted the parties membership opening for years and even tried it once and failed, before the recent fiasco.I know, I voted against it at the time.
