On a cold Saturday morning in Barnsley, activists from Yorkshire came together to push the British National Party’s latest campaigns and sell the ever popular Voice of Freedom.

Hard working activist and local Barnsley issues expert Jane Hubbard was on hand to talk to locals on a wide range of subjects including bedroom tax, planned traveller sites and various new plans for 'development' in the Barnsley area.

Jane said 'Trying to explain the bedroom tax to people is a difficult one. The proposals are ludicrous and where will the extra £1,000,000 a week go? Local government or central government? It’s totally unclear. Barnsley Councils proposal for 'temporary' traveller sites is beyond crazy. According to a council spokesman we have to protect Nomadic rights but I want to know who is going to pay for these Nomadic rights and whose going to bloody clean up for them when they’ve gone?'

Barnsley organiser Terry Hubbard plans to make the Barnsley stall ever present once again and is in the process of organising a meeting for March.

Terry said 'We plan to hold a meeting after the Chairman’s tour in February and in the meantime support the tour by travelling and helping out Marlene (Guest) in Rotherham Feb 13th to set up.'

On hand was Danny Cooke who along with Nick Griffin is calling for an inquiry into 'the Battle of Orgreave' which took place during the Miners strike of 1984/85.

Danny said 'Where better to start our Orgreave inquiry campaign than Barnsley? I spoke to many ex miners and strike veterans this morning who are strongly behind us calling for an inquiry.

Scargill (Arthur Scargill) couldn’t do it right so let’s hope me and Nick can!'
