The Battle for Oswald Road

The Border Counties Advertizer has reported again on Oswestry Muslim Society's plans to convert a former church in Oswald Road into a 'Muslim Prayer Centre', which we in the British National Party tend to call a 'mosque'.

Public comments continue to roll in for the Oswestry Muslim Society proposal to transform the former Presbyterian Church on Oswald Road, hitting the 100-mark last week, as the £300,000 scheme divides the local community.

Currently 59 objections have been received by Shropshire Council, with 40 in favour, and one neutral comment.
A planning decision for the building, which currently houses an antique and reproduction furniture business, had been expected by January 11.

The recent spike in objections follows a targeted campaign by the British National Party, despite receiving considerable public support in the early stages.

The full story can be read here and includes an excellent quote from a gentleman who objects to the plans.

But is it any wonder that mosques are cropping up all over Britain? After all, it was David Cameron who said, 'Not for the first time, I found myself thinking that it is mainstream Britain which needs to integrate more with the British Asian way of life, not the other way around' in an article written for the Observer way back in 2007 which can be read here.

We are sure there are many Oriental folk who are confused at Cameron's turn of phrase, but we presume that in this case by 'British Asian' he meant 'Muslim'.

So while the Tories pander to Muslims in order to get votes, Shropshire Branch of the BNP is standing firm for we believe Islam is not right for Britain and the problems it brings far outweigh any benefits.

Our message to local people thinking of objecting is this - stand firm in your beliefs and have the courage of your convictions.


Thanks for your support; if you are a proud Oswestarian or have patriotic friends in or near the town, please do object to these plans:
