By Richard Perry - The 10th till the 12th March saw the British National Parties activists and Councillors go on the first of their their annual EU sponsered pilgrimages to the European Union Parliament.

For the first time, our group went to the Strasbourg Parliament. The discussions on this long minibus journey right the way through France was on how best to destroy this anti-British beast.

The long drive was rewarded by arriving at a pretty and a historic location 30 minutes away from the Strasbourg Parliament.

Our Hotel was a comfortable and a well appointed ancient building. After a good night’s sleep and then a continental breakfast, consisting of cheese, spam and yogurt, we set off for a sight seeing trip around Strasbourg.

We visited the beautiful Cathedral then walked along the river Rhine to Petit France and did some shopping but it was a bitterly cold day so many of us ended up in local bars and sampled some French beers.

Afterwards we visited the Strasbourg Parliament where the modern architecture was definitely not to everybody’s taste.

Once inside the building, it was extremely warm and all the staff seemed efficient (just as they should be seeing as cash strapped Britain is paying for them).

Getting around this building was fraught with problems as it seemed that you couldn’t go directly anywhere but needed to go upstairs then along and then down again just like some weird Super Mario video game!

We were given a short lecture in a small conference room by a member of staff on the general working of the European Union and then visited the main chamber with Nick Griffin MEP (oops, I nearly said debating chamber). There is no debating in there.

It is strictly a maximum of 90 seconds speech and then you go. Personally I have seen more action in a parish Council meeting discussing which quote to have for the repairs to a churchyard fence!

Finally we went to the canteen where the food was OK if a little expensive. After our meal, there were many cameras flashing and lots of commotion that interrupted this quiet scene.

Looking around, we realised that it was Jean-Marie Le Pen MEP who was the centre of attention of our eagle eyed activists.

He was flattered by all our attention and with all the other insignificant MEPs looking over, there was then an impromptu photo session with this European nationalist hero who was most gracious and accommodating.

Before we left this elder statesman, who is an inspiration to millions of nationalists worldwide, he asked if he could have his photo taken with Councillor Clive Jefferson.

What a lovely compliment to our hard working treasurer to end a fantastic day!
