It was business as usual as the EU tour with party chairman Nick Griffin MEP rolled up as scheduled at the Salford meeting at the Bridgewater Hotel in Worsley.
The Bridgewater was the first of the two venues planned to meet the democratically elected Northwest MEP Nick Griffin. A short question-and-answer, and a general meet-and-greet session took place.
This was despite failed attempts from the Labour Party, who rang the landlady to complain in a very undemocratic and fascist manner, hoping to disrupt the evening.
Nonetheless, the meeting went ahead as planned, in a second venue.
The whole event was overseen and chaired by Tameside Organiser Kay Pollitt and arranged by acting Northwest Regional Organiser Gary Tumulty.
Kay, hosting the event, introduced Mr Griffin MEP to the nationalist-packed room of new and old members who were accompanied by supporters who have made enquiries over the past few weeks.
Nick spoke of how we must engage in our own communities, and help the elderly, disabled and most vulnerable people around us. Because of the financial crisis the country is in, our own people, the British,are struggling to put food on the table with tax increases and the energy bills pilling up at their doors.
The British National Party will be taking steps nationwide to help the people who need it the most, by collections made locally to provide food parcels to the most needy in communities.
Nick Griffin MEP tells the website “I thank the Salford team for hosting the event, and all the key officials who made the event work - Kay, Gary and Eddy - and more so I am grateful to the members and supporters who turned up”.
Acting Northwest Organiser Gary Tumulty added, “This is one of many events to hit the Northwest in the next couple of months and I would urge all our members to contact me or their local organisers to see what is happening in their area and how they can get involved.”
A respectable sum was collected at the meeting and will go towards the EU Election campaign.
