“I don’t make a habit of talking about myself but following an interesting coversation the other day I think it’s time I made my position clear.
Someone in my home village apparently had told a local inn keeper that I was to challenge Nick Griffin for the leadership of the BNP.
This is nonsense of course as I’m not even the leader of our group and don’t consider myself to be either a good speaker or interested in being the next Chairman.
Apart from that, I wouldn’t want the workload or the travelling about that Nick does whether we like him or not.
As for the party, I am totally supportive of anyone who wants to challenge for the leadership on the grounds of democracy and if Nick wins again then so be it.
The constitution is a farce and designed to make it near impossible to instigate regime change. Those who voted for the current version must be deluded if they think that is democratic.
Whatismore, I haven’t got a clue who the Founders are and would think collecting the required number of nominees as impossible.
I see people are being expelled for asking questions about the accounts and have to wonder what is there to hide. Therefore I conclude there is something to hide and I don’t like it.
Some good activists have been lost over recent years simply for speaking out. This is not acceptable to me either. I believe in people’s rights to challenge everything in the same way as Scrutiny operates on the council.
The answers are not always what we hope for but we still ask and don’t get sacked for having the nerve.
I might also point out that my membership has expired and Belfast were supposed to ring me on May 28th but failed to do so, therefore my five years continuous has been broken, ruling me out as a candidate and voter.
Leicestershire is a strong area for the BNP but I don’t see anything wrong in supporting a challenge whether or not it results in change.
The Party is paramount and I believe it isn’t being managed in an open and honest way. How can I be expected to encourage people to join, knowing that it is run as a personal empire where the members are merely a scource of income.
Frankly, I don’t think a challenge would succeed but I would like to see it happen to calm the situation although I’m yet to see a worthy opponent.
Eddy Butler seems to be being touted but I don’t know much about him other than what I’ve read on the internet and can that be trusted?
If Nick Griffin is to step down in three years time, there will be a leadership contest anyway so let him accept a challenge now and save the Party three more years of squabbling and membership losses. “
