About 100 workers have told Royal Mail bosses in Bristol and Somerset that they refuse to deliver BNP leaflets. A Royal Mail spokesperson said: “Where possible we will try to be flexible and sensitive to individual personal circumstances or beliefs. However, we need to balance this with Royal Mail’s legal obligations under the Representation of People Act, to deliver election material.”
BNP also attack black solider and Gurkhas
With Bristol posties refusing to push their leaflets and people cutting down their posters, resistance to the BNP is growing in Bristol and the South West; but the prospect of the BNP in power remains and needs to be resisted.
The true colours of the BNP are starting to run; and it’s not red, white and blue. It’s just red; blood red. The party has its party ‘advisor’ and ‘philosopher’ Arthur Kemp was speaking in an online video and offering this cryptic and very scary message for the ‘tyrants’; “We promise when we come to power we will put these people on trial for treason. The only issue is whether we will bring back the death penalty for treason before or after the trials.” Which people? Those who voted against you? Non-white people? Far from being a ‘real’ political party, the BNP have shown themselves to be out and out fascists and they want lots of blood spilled when they get into power.
To pile onto the blood-lust, a health dose of racism, the BNP are now claiming that a solider who won a Victoria Cross only got it ‘cos he was black. Here’s what the medal recipient Johnson Beharry did;
Despite this harrowing weight of incoming fire Beharry continued to push through the extended ambush, still leading his platoon until he broke clear. He then visually identified another Warrior from his company and followed it through the streets of Al Amarah to the outside of the Cimic House outpost, which was receiving small arms fire from the surrounding area. Once he had brought his vehicle to a halt outside, without thought for his own personal safety, he climbed onto the turret of the still-burning vehicle and, seemingly oblivious to the incoming enemy small arms fire, manhandled his wounded platoon commander out of the turret, off the vehicle and to the safety of a nearby Warrior. He then returned once again to his vehicle and again mounted the exposed turret to lift out the vehicle’s gunner and move him to a position of safety. Exposing himself yet again to enemy fire he returned to the rear of the burning vehicle to lead the disorientated and shocked dismounts and casualties to safety. Remounting his burning vehicle for a third time, he drove it through a complex chicane and into the security of the defended perimeter of the outpost, thus denying it to the enemy. Only at this stage did Beharry pull the fire extinguisher handles, immobilising the engine of the vehicle, dismounted and then moved himself into the relative safety of the back of another Warrior. Once inside Beharry collapsed from the sheer physical and mental exhaustion of his efforts and was subsequently himself evacuated.
Now whatever your stance on the Iraq war, this was a guy who risked his life to get his comrades to safety.
Also Angry Joanna Lumley last night blasted a British National Party leaflet targeting a Gurkha recently killed in action. The Ab Fab star branded as “disgusting” the racist party’s use of a picture of Corporal Kumar Pun with a cross through it. Thousands of the hate-filled leaflets also demand: “Stop this illegal Gurkha immigration.”
The BNP’s accusations a racist and wrong.

The BNP’s support in recent polls has been slipping a bit as their true face appears; they can be stopped, but we still need to stop them. Remember the MEP elections are proportional representation; all votes count – and all absent votes count. Think of a room of 100 people. Let’s say 5 are BNP supporters. They are only 5% – not enough to get the 8% they need to get an MEP. Now consider the last turn-out; 40% – so now consider what happens if only 40 of the group vote but the BNP get their 5 supporters to vote; suddenly they are 12.5% of the vote and have got an MEP and around £2 million in tax-payers money to fund their party. Scary thought.
