The allegations were apparently derived from a former ex-employee and related to her MEP expenses and allowances. Properties were also searched during the course of the investigation.
Yet we have not received any information as to whether Griffin and his properties were searched or whether his assistants and close officials were arrested.
We do know that previous complaints to the Met and to Dyfed-Powys Police have failed to get off the ground and were rejected. We can say, however, that on this occasion Dyfed-Powys Police have accepted the seriousness of the complaints and taken action on collating the material and interviewing the complainants. This can only be a positive step forward although the seriousness of the complaint and the evidence submitted did warrant some form of police action.
It has become increasingly self-evident that Nick Griffin is being protected by the State. But we need to determine at what level, by whom and why. The last question is perhaps the easiest to answer as he is a key layer in channelling and neutralising nationalist dissent. Those critics who proclaim Griffin to be stupid or prone to making serious strategic errors are wrong. Griffin may be vain and he may be arrogant and naïve to some extent but he is an intelligent man and he is experienced. The reason that he has made so many ‘errors’ and committed substantial strategic failures, as well as so many policy changes to ‘modernise’ the party, and why so many experienced and capable individuals have been expelled or have resigned, is simple: it is because he is doing what he has been told to do by individuals higher up within the British State. His task is to ensure that the BNP never succeeds but to ensure that it stays afloat and strong enough to absorb sufficient dissent from within nationalism and to attract sufficient levels of dissent and protest votes from the public.
Griffin has never had any sound convictions for the ideals of race and nation. He is by nature an opportunist and his zeal is superficial and based on intellectualism. A body of nationalists, mostly notably those of the North-West Nationalists led by Pete Barker, have consistently been in the running with the hypothesis that Griffin was a state agent. They have been proven right over the years, despite the early popularity and success of Griffin, and the opposition that they had to endure for their insights.
In former analyses Nemesis has made an incorrect analysis from observations made of Griffin and the BNP, incorrectly stating that the State was about to ‘pull the plug on the BNP’. Time has shown that this was not the case and the capacity of the BNP under Griffin to continue its task of attracting nationalists and dissent continues. It is becoming clear that the mere existence of the BNP, both as an established brand name and under a well-known leader and MEP (even as a figure who is widely reviled and ridiculed), has ensured that it be allowed to continue on its path as an establishment ‘Trojan Horse’.
So long as the BNP exists then that momentum to develop and expand an alternative nationalist party does not exist, particularly with a senior figure as Andrew Brons MEP who resists the setting up of a new party as long as the parent body remains. The failure of the English Democratic Party (EDP) and the British Freedom Party (BFP) have all demonstrated that no other nationalist party can forge ahead with that same level of momentum and capability that the BNP had from 2002 onwards. The BNP was in a league of its own, its nearest rival the National Front, had become eclipsed and relegated to the sidelines by a resurgent and powerful BNP under Griffin who was able to build up in the aftermath of the northern riots and the hard work of its successful branches.
It is fact that the BNP occupies that all important political strategic space that a nationalist party would need to take before becoming a credible alternative. Hence why the State prefers the BNP to continue in its lethargic state run by Griffin.
Griffin Watch shall be instigating a series of Freedom of Information requests demanding further information about their investigations and why no action will be taken. Whatever action we shall take in pursuance of this will depend on what kind of information we receive in response.
It is possible that a senior official within the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) was approached by the senior police officer at Dyfed-Powys as police are allowed to seek advice from prosecutors about any aspect of their work. Considering the role of the CPS during the 1998 ‘Rune Trial’ when Griffin was prosecuted, leading to Griffin himself dropping his legal team and handling his own defence, it is quite possible that the CPS have a secret understanding with him and are protecting him, as Griffin may have struck a bargain with them at time for a lenient sentence.
The record of the Metropolitan Police, for example, in failing to investigate complaints, or to even record them, is very poor. This ranges from refusals to investigate Peter Mandelson after he obtained a mortgage by fraudulent means; refusals to investigate complaints of incitement to racial hatred by Greg Dyke when BBC Director-General (his “hideously white” description of the BBC) and a Plaid Cymru leader who described the English in Wales as “a virus).
The police are a corrupt institution controlled by corrupt officers at senior level who operate according to the demands of the British liberal state. The fact that Dyfed-Powys Police have stopped their investigation into the various allegations involving Nick Griffin is serious, although not surprising.
What we intend to do is, if all else fails, is to consider an approach to a court of law, after legal consultation, for access to a writ of mandamus (which means “we command”) and is the name of one of the prerogative writs in the common law and is “issued by a superior court to compel a lower court or a government officer to perform mandatory or purely ministerial duties correctly.”
Before we entertain that stage we shall endeavour to seek out as much information as we can from the authorities. This occurrence has not just happened once with Griffin, but on a number of occasions.
What we would like individuals to do is to disseminate this failure of justice by the authorities and to take up verbal arms against them, that is, to take this issue up with the authorities themselves. If enough complaints and notices are sent in over time then the authorities and the media who have for too long remained silent, must listen. We ask that those individuals who want to take action to contact their Member of Parliament and also representatives of the House of Lords, as well as the national media, and to ensure that this matter is brought to their attention. We ask that you approach your local MP and inform them of the failure of the authorities to prosecute this case and to ask why someone who is generally vilified by the media as being ‘extremist’ or ‘racist’ is actually being apparently protected by the authorities. That despite clear evidence of fraud and deception being committed by Nick Griffin and also in involved in criminal charges to pervert justice by attempting to frame an elected official, that the police have dropped all charges.
Tell them that this indicates that not only is Nick Griffin being protected by a state which shows all the hallmarks of being schizophrenic in its attitude to race and immigration,, but it indicates that elements within the British State are actively involved in interfering with democracy by undermining and manipulating democratic political parties, seeking to subvert them and denying the people of Britain a free and open choice of who they want to represent them.
If you wish you may copy this template or use it as the basis for your own letter or email to your MP:
I am writing to you as your constituent regarding the failure of the Dyfed-Powys Police to fully investigate and pursue very serious allegations against the Chairman of the British National Party (BNP), Nick Griffin MEP.
In 2011 a number of complainants made allegations to the Dyfed-Powys Police concerning various charges of fraud and deception to procure funds from its membership, for the BNP’s ‘Truth Truck’, a propaganda vehicle used by the BNP. Evidence was submitted that showed that fraud and deception appeared to have been committed in the pursuit of the purchase of this vehicle.
Further allegations were also made regarding efforts by Nick Griffin to pervert justice in attempting to procure an elected GLA officer, Richard Barnbrook, into a criminal charge by conspiring to enter into false documentation to incriminate Mr Barnbrook.
You may be interested to realise that none of these matters has ever been carried by the mainstream media who have seemingly kept this out of public attention.
This is not the first time that serious allegations against Mr Griffin have been dropped by the authorities and the evidence gathered by such blogs as Griffin Watch have underline the distinct possibility that Nick Griffin is being protected by the establishment. Considering the fact that a UKIP MEP, Nikki Sinclaire, was arrested earlier this year for allegations concerning EU expenses, yet Mr Griffin has not been arrested, then this may give cause for concern.
Nick Griffin has a trail of allegations and evidence concerning financial corruption yet he and the BNP have never been properly investigated by the authorities, unlike other parties. The evidence is available for those wishing to seek it, which indicate that Mr Griffin is being manipulated by elements within the establishment to destabilise a democratic political party, allowing his financial misadventures to be ignored in return for him steering that party into a direction more desirable to the establishment.
I therefore ask you as my constituent Member of Parliament, to address this serious address on my behalf and raise it in the House of Commons, and to seek an enquiry as to the nature and scale of interference by the Intelligence Services within political parties of this country., and within the democratic process as a whole.

You may also wish to write to the editors of national newspapers or to discuss the issue on newspaper forums. In fact, use any avenue to disseminate the negligence of the police in pursuing this case against Griffin and the impact it has on the democratic process. Remember it is our democracy, or at least the principle and values of it, that are being subverted by anti-democratic forces within the establishment.
We may even have to pursue this matter through European institutions. If the fascist forces of the British establishment want to resist then we shall pursue this matter. Why? Because it is a matter that hits at the heart of who we are as a people and as nation and who we are being governed by. It is fundamental to the relationship between the governed and the government. It is the role between common law and the statutes imposed upon us by a state that has become so anti-democratic that it now fears democracy and the will of the people. Above all, it affects the very building blocks of our constitution. If forces have attempted to subvert the essence of democracy then our system is redundant.
We have been lied to and deceived for too long by nefarious forces at work within our system of government. Our democracy is a sham and we are like puppets being manipulated by dark forces. If an arm of the state can wilfully and deliberately interfere with, and subject a democratic political party, to subversion, then we are no longer living in a democracy – but a totalitarian one. Make no mistake about this matter: the dereliction of the government to protect the democratic freedoms of its citizens makes us puppets, and no longer citizens. Our contract with this totalitarian state will be terminated. Our call to non-compliance, civil disobedience and mass resistance looms larger each day.
