By James North – On tonight's show: A police watchdog was today probing why an 82-year-old man was Tasered by armed officers and hospitalised for six days. The pensioner was shot with the 50,000-volt stun gun after apparently “threatening” a man. A team of armed police officers swooped on him in a west London street before firing the electroshock weapon.
The British National Party is on course to regain its GLA seat and perhaps win one more, London Regional Organiser Steve Squire told a recent meeting in Enfield. Mr Squire, who is the British National Party’s number one party list candidate for the GLA, was joined at the meeting by Party Chairman Nick Griffin.
By A Patriot – The Duke of Wellington is a title almost synonymous with Arthur Wellesley, the holder of that title who has been remembered throughout history as the victor of Waterloo. Like his contemporary, Lord Cardigan, his name has also been lent to his own invention – the wellington boot. This is the story of the man whose courage and determination prevented Great Britain from succumbing to the heel of the invader.
The British Veterans’ Group’s Veterans Officer, Pete Molloy, has received a response from both Buckingham Palace and Downing Street with regard to the issuing of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal next year. Many veterans and serving armed forces personnel will miss out on being awarded this medal due to the very narrow issuing criteria.
A hardworking British National Party activist was forced to call off a fundraising evening for the Royal British Legion at the last minute after political pressure was exerted on the venue’s owner. Blackburn Organiser Nancy Shaw-Farmer had to cancel the charity night in her home town after the pub chain was falsely told the event was a ‘cover up’ for a British National Party meeting.
After paying their respects to our fallen soldiers on Remembrance Day, local British National Party members gathered in Manchester to hold their monthly meeting, reports Salford Organiser Gary Tumulty. The meeting was chaired by Deputy Manchester Organiser Eddy O’Sullivan, who is holding the fort until the return of organiser Derek Adams.
British National Party councillors, officials and activists across the country commemorated the memory of our fallen heroes on Remembrance Sunday. Members laid wreaths at their local cenotaphs, partook in military parades and sold poppies for the Royal British Legion. Many were kind enough to send in photos and reports of the ceremonies they attended.
Nick Griffin laid his personal Remembrance Day wreath in the town of Bury, Lancashire, this year. In his third annual official Remembrance Day appearance since being elected an MEP, Mr. Griffin joined the Lord Lieutenant and local MP David Nuttall at the head of the wreath-laying party in the middle of Bury's traditionally large and impressive Remembrance Day parade.
By Stephen Palmer – The poppy isn’t the only symbol of British tradition that is under threat. It seems that barely a week goes by when there isn’t a story in the news about a far-left council, Muslim ‘community group’ or an ungrateful immigrant whinging about an indigenous Briton flying his own flag in his own country. The latest attack comes from the sleepy village of Gamston in Nottinghamshire, where ‘local’ residents are up in arms about the horrific sight of a Union Jack fluttering in the village green.
That's how Nick Griffin has slammed the latest set of 'Christmas' card designs produced by the European Parliament. Writing to the five Questeurs – the group of MEPs responsible for such decisions – Mr. Griffin drew attention to the absurdity and injustice of completely overlooking the Christian heritage of all the nations of Europe by issuing a set of six cards without a single one having any traditional Christian significance, let alone message.
