The following is an email and report I received from someone who I am pleased to call kinsman.
The writers name on the net his Vortex. In another article, I will tell you about the very early Sunday Morning meeting where four men sat and talked in the otherwise empty political tent which would later be bursting at the seams with BNP activists.
It was great to meet up with you amidst the camaraderie of like minded people.
I was also pleased to meet Roger, who I admire greatly for his work for the party in Wales, so don't have any worries on my score that he may have appeared to have been initially brusque.
I think the both of you are doing great things for the cause in so many ways, as indeed are all your colleagues in Wales BNP.
Please find attached a report I have written tonight on the weekend's activities. I am knackered to be honest, but also exhilarated after Sunday afternoon, with the speeches and the veterans parade.
I hope you'll use it, but as usual I won't take any offence if you decide not to do so.
Very best wishes,
I have just returned from the Red, White and Blue Festival held in rural Derbyshire this weekend. This thoroughly enjoyable event was held despite numerous obstacles being put in place by the Labour government in its continual campaign to break the British National Party.
Two years ago the event was held without any disruption to it whatsoever, in fact a lone anti-BNP protestor turned up with his placard and frankly received sympathy and not a little admiration for his courage in his lawful demonstration.
This year was different however. Apart from the local Labour council, no doubt under orders from above, again stopping the party from having both an entertainment and drinks licence, they proceeded to throw further restrictions in our way in the hope that not only would it impede the event but cause it to be unsuccessful.
One of these was to deny caravans and camper vans access to the site. I am delighted to say that this failed miserably. The police of course, the senior officers at any rate, were politically correct patsies in their collusion with the state to achieve this aim, and used a number of methods to try and undermine the event and cause disruption.
This comment is in no way a reflection on those decent officers on the beat. Yesterday they had to endure a foul mouthed, anti social and violent rabble of drop-outs and social misfits from the far left attacking them in the execution of their duty, to defend the right of assembly to a lawful political party and its supporters from holding a family orientated festival that has the temerity in the state’s eyes of celebrating our British way of life, cultural heritage and desire to mix and meet with our own people in pleasant surroundings.
So what actually happened at the RWB this year, what are the facts that the media acolytes of New Labour will not report?
First and foremost, the state and their proxies in UAF and other far left and violent anarchist groups did not prevent the festival taking place; neither despite a delay on Saturday morning did they prevent anyone attending the festival that wished to do so.
They did however like last year cause disruption to the decent people of Codnor and indeed other villages in the area in their attempt to deny free speech and break up a lawful gathering of their opponents.
The facts of what happened are these. The anti-BNP opposition, laughably called “anti-fascists” when they themselves adopt that mantle, once again caused mayhem, disruption to local people, attacked the police, but never got near the BNP event let alone stopping it from taking place, their ultimate aim.
They did however vandalize the car of a resident who understandably was annoyed by their intrusion onto his property, succeeded in getting the police to instruct local patriots to take down their Union and St George flags to avoid incurring a violent response from the great unwashed and thoroughly unpleasant anti-social misfits that comprise UAF.
They succeeded in causing consternation among local shopkeepers in Codnor so they closed their shops to avoid having them vandalized by UAF in the middle of the worst recession since the 1930s thus resulting in the shopkeepers losing a valuable day’s takings.
The UAF and their allies has intimidated local landowner and BNP member Alan Warner for weeks if not months because he wished to use his land for the purpose of a legitimate political party from holding a family orientated festival on his premises.
They had vandalized his property, daubed graffiti on it, stolen his flag (he had the temerity to fly a Union flag on his land), super glued his entrance gate locks, on one occasion stopping his disabled daughter from attending an important medical appointment and deposited used syringes on his land in the hope of frightening him of from staging the event.
But ex-miner Alan is made of stern stuff, and is a determined and proud patriot who will not succumb to threats of violence and intimidation from the dregs of society. The event was staged and Alan made it happen. Not only does the British National Party owe this man a debt of gratitude for his bravery and support, but society at large should acknowledge not only his brave stand but also the fact that he has the moral high ground over those that are the real fascist thugs namely the UAF.
Thank you Alan for allowing the BNP, our party, to stand their ground in the face of the massive attacks both physically and in so many other ways against it.
I cannot comment on the numbers attending the event as I don’t know them. I can only speculate that despite everything they threw at us, the numbers probably held up, if not marginally improved from last year.
What I can say, having been there, that following on from the vicious anti-BNP media campaign of lies, innuendo and threats, from the state, the unions and of course the violent thugs from the UAF and not forgetting our friends from Searchlight, the camaraderie and closing of the ranks in the face of our concerted opposition was at its very best. The mood of determination and fight back among the membership to save this great nation from decline and destruction was never so strong.
The press were eagerly searching for sound bites and photos that could portray the party in a bad light. Despite the violence and anti social behaviour to the people of Codnor and elsewhere in the area, they insisted on reporting this obtuse behaviour as small scale and that the majority of demonstrators were of course peaceful.
We of course were demonized as best they could according to the usual clichés they so repetitively employ. But the truth will out and the people of Codnor, and I spoke to a number of them, know where the disruption came from.
Again the press frantically searching for a local sympathetic resident to provide them with a sound bite or two eventually found one, but I can assure you dear reader the vast majority of local people know who the real thugs are and it is not the BNP.
Just ask the man whose car was vandalized in Codnor with all the windows smashed in, or the locals trying to get money out of the town’s cash points who found they had been super glued.
Or the resident of Denby Lane who was delayed from getting out of his own road by left wing scum blocking his road, trying to get his daughter to a an important medical appointment.
One of the UAF’s chants is “Nazi scum get off our streets”. Let’s employ “Far left scum get off Codnor’s residents’ streets which are theirs”. But that of course would be played down by the politically correct apparatchiks of the collective British media.
Of course don’t expect our media friends to report the facts, and expect much of the same. But we do have the Internet thank God to tell the truth! Without it we would have diminished recourse to reply to the anti-BNP smears, but here on the excellent Green Arrow Site and indeed elsewhere the truth can emerge, or at least the impartial observer can read an alternative version of events and make his or her own mind up.
I will finish by mentioning the highlight of the RWB to me this weekend.
That was the parade of BNP veterans, marching initially to take part in the Christian service on Sunday morning, but also in a moving act of remembrance for our fallen of the two world wars and for them more poignantly the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan in which they themselves served.
The image of these wonderful men, with their gongs shining brightly in the English sun over rural Derbyshire today will stay with me for a very long time. You won’t see these images in the media, but once again you will be able to do so not only on this, the best Nationalist Blog in Britain, but also on the main BNP website.
One small note to finish with. I finally got to meet GA in person over the weekend. It was a great pleasure to meet my good friend in the flesh and I look forward to meeting up again before too long. In the meanwhile I know we will both be busy working hard to sell the BNP in our very noble quest to save this great nation, its people and its glorious heritage.
