We knew that it would be long before Griffarage and his cohorts (co-defendants?) launched another appeal. He just can’t seem to help himself, from trying to help himself to your dosh!!!!!
Let us not forget that if Griffarage had abided by the judges ruling, regarding the E.H.R.C.s nefarious interference in a legal political party, in the first place, there would be no need for the party to be in court again, with the obvious expense and wasted time that this incurs.
Clearly the post below, on the B.D.F. forum is deliberately timed to help to encourage you to “lighten your wallet” at Griffarages behest:
“BNP Books to be opened up.
The ROs via Acting National Organiser Clive Jefferson have asked Nick Griffin for a AC meeting to study the party books to get the info to blow all the mis-information away.
Nick Griffin has said “No problem” and has welcomed the move.
The meeting is to be held on the 14th August.”
Here are some cutting edge comments that expose Griffarages, quite frankly pathetic attempts at allaying the members correctly held suspicions.
“The books to be opened up? And quite rightly so. Sounds like a big event, although, of course, they should have been transparent at all times. I am a professional accountant who is a gold member. Will I get access to these? Will members of the AC be able to understand the books and be able to analyse them? Will they know the questions to ask once they are looking at the books?
Griffin, invite me along as well. I’ll bet you won’t.”
“So it’s only taken Nick Griffin 11 years as leader and because of the most serious challenge to his leadership to undertake such a move and all because Mr Purgative of the North himself in a Damascene conversion to transparency and openness has requested it.
You may fool the gullible, misinformed and naive but you do not fool anyone on here.
Have the accounts been submitted yet?”
“I assume that all supporting paper work i.e. bank statements, invoices, purchase orders, paye records, petty cash reciepts, utility bills, etc, etc will be available to a qualified accountant such as Horatio for audit purposes?”
And I’d bet my life that neither the Trafalgar Club accounts nor itemised statements of purchases made on the party’s credit cards are made available. If the AC had their wits about them they would insist on seeing them too.”
BNP Statement of Accounts
14 Apr 2010
In January 2010 the Electoral Commission, the independent party finance watchdog, began a case review following concerns raised in the independent auditor’s opinion about the adequacy of the 2008 statement of accounts of the British National Party.
The case has now become an investigation. However, it is important to note – particularly during an election period – that no conclusion has been reached and therefore no assumption should be made as to whether a breach of the rules has occurred.
Obviously this is old news, but there doesn’t seem to be any indication this has been concluded or the investigation findings reported. I note that the BNP has already made statements previously saying the investigation found nothing wrong with the BNP’s
accounts or fund raising donations (I’m assuming their comments referred to this recent investigation).
Any comments on this? I have contacted the Election Commission to query the outcome or status of the investigation, waiting for a reply.”
UPDATE: Just got a reply from the Election Commission to say the investigation is still “ongoing” and they will publish the findings on the website when it’s completed.”
