Great news today as the Shropshire Star reports here that the plan for a 'Muslim Prayer Centre' in Oswestry has now been dropped.
But north Shropshire organiser Phil Reddall this afternoon spoke of his suspicion regarding the announcement.
"With elections looming and the BNP's north Shropshire group poised to stand more candidates than ever before, this headline could well be a ploy to divert the attention of voters away from the highly controversial mosque issue.
"I would not be at all surprised if a new planning application from Oswestry Muslim Society appears after the elections have passed," Mr Reddall continued.
Shropshire Patriot believes that had it not been for the BNP's campaign to raise awareness of this plan, Oswestry would by now be the first north Shropshire town to have its own mosque.
In truth, it is only a matter of time before Islam rears its head again in Shropshire and until our local Council chambers are filled with honest patriots, our County will continue to change in ways not beneficial to the British way of life.
