The trade unions must be starting to feel the pinch. Despite throwing buckets of their dwindling memberships money at trying to whip up enough supporters to protest outside The New Kimberley Hotel in Blackpool, where the British National Party have been holding one of their most succesful conferences ever, they managed to muster less than 100 supporters.
Unable to raise any local support, the paid agitators of the Moslem and trade union funded Urinate Against Freedom(UAF) chanted their usual nonsense and generally just wound up embarrassing themselves and the trade unions they are supposed to represent.
So pathetic was their turnout that some members of the BNP, observing them from their warm rooms inside the hotel wondered if they might have a whip around and send around a soup kitchen for the brain dead reds shivering outside. The UAF certainly looked as if they needed something decent inside of them rather than the White Lightening Cider some of them had obviously been consuming to build up their courage.
Nick Griffin, who just the day before, had attended a packed meeting of over 220 supporters in Barnsley, which you can listen to a report of here, was on fine form but more about that later.
But if you were for some strange reason to visit their sad UAF site, you would wonder if perhaps the UAF slip in and out of another dimension. According to them, there were only 15 BNP members present at the conference. The Neanderthals seemed to have forgotten the wonders of technology and the ability to post the truth and images.
The police had requested that the BNP not tease the rabble outside and also that no photo's be taken of the paid little band outside. However some were taken and so no doubt we will be seeing the usual faces around the net soon. But meanwhile have a laugh at some of their regular followers.
You can still view the action by going here then clicking on Grenada Reports and selecting 17/11/07. The report is 4 minutes in.
Thanks to Chris Hill, Lancaster we now know that the actual number of paid demonstrators was more in the region of just 70. Remember this demonstration was to to be the mass mobilization of the left to shout down the BNP. For a Last Hurrah, it was pretty pathetic.
