Dame Vera and the BNP

Daily Mail Reporter with egg on face to see Editor later today:)

It really is nice to start the day with a laugh and a smile. And an unknown journalist on the Daily Backstabber has certainly done that for me today.

Now I know one really should not take pleasure in others misfortune but in the case of the unknown hack on the Backstabber, he or she brought it on themselves by not checking their facts before submitting copy.

Later today, after wiping the egg from their face they will probably be finding themselves up in front of the Old Man for a severe dressing down. I should also imagine they will get some stick from their colleagues also. Red faces all around, more publicity for the BNP and a laugh to start the day off with.

Actually, before I do anything, I had better take a screen shot of the article I am laughing about. I suspect it may not be about for long, in fact I might as well use it as the caption for the story.

The Backstabber, along with other ireputable rags are reporting that Dame Vera Lynn is supposedly "furious" after the British National Party used one of her songs on an anti-immigration album they produced,
Dame Vera Lynn is on the warpath after the right-wing British National Party used her version of 'White Cliffs of Dover' song on a anti-immigration album without her permission.

The 91-year-old is said to be 'furious' after the BNP used the recording together with another of her classics, All Alone in Vienna, on the provocative CD.

The album is even named after the White Cliffs song.
Provocative CD? Is the journalist on crack? Is he even a journalist? Blue Birds over the White Cliffs of Dover does not sound likely to incite racial warfare to me. Although trains and lorry loads of illegal immigrants coming through the tunnel underneath the cliffs might not help racial harmony.

The truth of course is somewhat different and when it comes out later today, is when the fun will start for the unknown reporter and those who blindly accepted his writings as fact and published them.

The following is taken from the BNP website, one of the few places you can find the truth these days.
The CD in question, “The White Cliffs of Dover,” is in fact a commercially published CD, available on Amazon.co.uk and other retail outlets, and was not produced by the BNP at all. This fact has not however stopped the media from whipping itself up into a lying frenzy, claiming that the BNP had “put the track on a nationalistic album named after the iconic song.”
Like I said. It is good to start the day with a laugh.

On a more serious note, overseas supporters of the British National Party might like to help the BNP by considering buying some items from the excellent Exalibur range of goods. I strongly recommend The White Cliffs of Dover.

One last thing that was brought to my attention by an anonymous commenter. Strange how this country can deport European Parliamentarian, Geert Wilders in under one hour when we cannot deport illegal immigrants and bogus refugees ever.

The exact same CD with the same cover has in the past been stocked by W H Smith http://www.whsmith.co.uk/CatalogAndSearch/ProductDetails-The+White+Cliffs+Of+Dover-789933.html

Although I'd expect crap reporting from the Mail, the normally more accurate Torygraph has also published this stuff uncritically: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/politics/4687730/Dame-Vera-Lynn-takes-on-BNP-over-White-Cliffs-of-Dover.html

GA

you thought that geert wilders banning was a farce, check this out,
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/hampshire/7898972.stm
"A father and daughter from a US church which preaches hatred of homosexuals have been banned from entering the UK by Home Secretary Jacqui Smith."

Yet Qatada is being given compensation by the EU, his family are on welfare, he continues to pose a threat to British security yet the government can easily turn away at the border an American man and his daughter!

from the british government...""We will continue to stop those who want to spread extremism, hatred and violent messages in our communities from coming to our country."

Really?

The Daily Backstabber never did let the facts stand in the way of a good story, and what type of people would approach a 91 year old woman and stress her out with lies ? Isn't she entitled to a peaceful old age rather than being used to further the Leftists agenda, great publicity though, they always did take their readership as gullible fools. I wonder if the white Ciffs of Dover will be deemed very soon not Polically Correct ? May i make a suggestion they could call them the Pale Cliffs of Dover, no one could be offended by that surely ?politicalMIZZ

I am so sad to hear that the singer of one of the most evocative songs of my parents generation, has decided to come out against those who would wish to protect those white cliffs once more. Was she put up to it, bullied? coerced?..or was she yet another state agent whose words in song meant nothing to her personally, happy to send the boys off to die all those years ago, and giving them something to fight for while making a living out of entertaining them while despising them . Why must this evil tyrrany that we are now living under turn our heroes and achievements upside down?, Noo Labour, you have a lot to answer for, I for one will never forgive you. Dame Vera, you do not speak for all of your contemporaries, of that I am sure, but you have made this fan from a different generation very dismayed.

Now here's another smear story that immediately rings untrue:

"DAME Vera Lynn plans to sue the British National Party over her song The White Cliffs of Dover."

http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/uk-world-news/2009/02/18/dame-vera-lynn-to-sue-bnp-over-white-cliffs-of-dover-86908-21133560/

- This is extremely unlikely, because anyone vaguely familiar with show business will know that star performers hardly ever handle their own legal affairs. Complex legal/commercial aspects such as copyright and royalties are almost always delegated to the performer's agent.

poor thing, like all the other folk that lived through the blitz they have also bent over backwards, including the queen to accommodate the islamic hordes.
dont these maggots know what the word treason means?

the queen should be the first to be thrown into the tower of london, ditch that stupid monarchy, surely there must be some royal blood line in the UK that is willing to defend the UK?

It's obscene that 91 year old Dame Vera is being used as a stooge by the pre- E.U elctions anti-BNP smear campaign. She - or more likey just her representative - has clearly been fed lies in order to elicit condemnatory remarks against the BNP and provide negative headlines for the BNP. There clearly are no depths to which our opponents will not stoop.
