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.
The guest speaker for the evening was long-time member Duncan Warner, who spoke about British heritage and how it fits in with British National Party policy. One of the most interesting segments of the talk was on the British industrial revolution and how it helped form the world as it is today.
A considerable amount was raised from the collection and will be used for leaflets and up-and-coming events from the Manchester branch. Mr O’Sullivan said: ‘It is always a great pleasure to attend British National Party meetings and to see enthusiastic members with such strong views. It is highly important that we all stick together and fight the left-wing parties in power today, because, without us, there is nothing left.’
He added: ‘I would like to thank all the members who turned up and donated to the Manchester branch tonight.’
Another meeting is scheduled for early January, and any member in Manchester who would like to come along should send an email to email@example.com or contact 07909 674006 for details.
The next meeting will focus on selecting candidates for 2012 elections. Mr Tumulty commented: ‘I am pleased to announce that members have already put their hands up to be counted, but to stand a firm chance of getting elected we need more people to come forward. It’s your time to stand up for your community, so come to the next meeting, and let’s all get involved.’
