Lincoln BNP candidate under investigation by police

The sole BNP candidate in Lincolnshire for the upcoming local elections, Dean Crowther, is under investigation by police for posting racist material on his Facebook page. Lowther, who is standing in the Bracebridge ward, posted pictures of the Obamas as monkeys and called the government a “race traitor Government” for giving benefits to Muslim women with children. The Lincolnshire Echo reports that “Many other images were too offensive to describe in the paper.”

Lowther is clearly none too bright and defended himself by saying that “These sort of pictures are all over the internet anyway” and that “Facebook have only ever deleted one of my photos,” ending with the classic, “I’m not a racist – I have black friends”. He didn’t mention what those black friends thought about being likened to monkeys.

Geoff Dickens has some words of wisdom as well: “There’s little or nothing that anyone can do about it, in the same way that there’s some awful images across the internet depicting all sorts of stuff.” Err… the images could be taken down. You could kick Lowther out of the party, after all, according to Geoff, “We are not a racist party.” But then I suppose the BNP wouldn’t even have dregs like this left to run in elections.

Dickensian gloom

Regular readers will have notices several references to BNP East Midlands Regional Organiser Geoff Dickens in the last few months. It’s important to know your enemies, and so we’d like to introduce the BNP’s main man in our region.  “Retired businessman” Geoff lives in Shawell, near Lutterworth, and has stood for the BNP in several elections in Leicestershire, most recently at the general election in 2010, where he failed to secure the Harborough seat for the white race (although he did narrowly beat the UKIP candidate).

More interesting than old Geoff himself is what his job as Regional Organiser illustrates about the current state of the BNP.  Much of Dickens’s role seems to be touring local branches spreading the word to the (generally few) party faithful.  He has recently addressed meetings in Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, and Derbyshire, delivering his trademark routine – which consists mostly of paranoid tosh about the international communist new world order, followed by a call for party unity and, of course, the appeals for money which BNP members hear so often these days.

Unity and money are both elusive in the BNP at the moment, and so Dickens has the unenviable mission of trying to subdue the strong anti-Griffin feeling from local members, whilst also boosting party coffers – a gloomy task whilst many members accuse Nick Griffin of diverting wodges of their cash into his own capacious pockets, and whilst the BNP central command (ie. Griffin and his mates) owe the East Midlands region eight and a half grand….

Dickens was the “returning officer” for the BNP’s extremely bitter leadership election last summer, where Griffin beat Andrew Brons by 9 votes, amidst a whirlwind of claims of vote-rigging and dodgy dealings (in a fascist party – how surprising!).  Dickens is seen as a steady, even-handed party man, suitable to deliver the unity and “safe” party image the BNP so eagerly crave.

It wasn’t always like this for Geoff though; he was (as were both Griffin and Brons) a very active member of the old-school NF for many years, which is not the sort of thing BNP officials like to mention nowadays.  An even more inconvenient skeleton in his cupboard is his membership of the barmy openly nazi outfit The Greater Britain Movement in the 1960s, which took inspiration from Mosley’s blackshirts.  It’s useful to be reminded that despite the laughable infighting, incompetence and irrelevance of today’s “more respectable” BNP, they will always represent a danger as a direct inheritor of the British fascist tendency; that’s why we oppose them, and that’s why we’re watching you, Geoff.






Allsebrook jumps Amber Valley BNP’s sinking ship

Amber Valley BNP is the slapstick comedy that keeps on giving. The latest news is that chirpy chipmunk and Heanor councillor Lewis Allsebrook has thrown his toys out of the pram and left the party. He’s taken the rather rubbish Amber Valley Matters website with him and seems hell bent on destroying the rats that are left on the BNP’s sinking ship. Allsebrook’s rambling resignation message lets rip on his enemies within Derbyshire BNP and admits that he has been behind all of the truthseeker22 ranting.

Before he steps off the stage never to be heard of again, we’d like to thank Allsebrook for all the laughs he’s given us over the years: from starting rumours that he was having a tawdry affair with Emma Roper, to admitting that whilst he’s “always been strongly opinionated I’ve sometimes found it difficult to articulate my views orally… I still to some extent let my words come out in the wrong order”. Not to mention the recent hilarious rants of truthseeker. The information he has provided us has been invaluable.

Now, on to that resignation rant which digs more interesting dirt on the already very grubby local BNPers. Allsebrook describes having been “hampered by the crazy ideological sensitivities of the British National Party” which is “shambolic” and only has a “shallow pool of members”. Allsebrook claims to have left with a “sizeable group of local patriots” although we suspect this amounts to Allsebrook and his tiny clique: Debra Purdy, Amy Purdy and Maria Riley-Ward.

Apparently all of the simmering resentments came to a head at a recent regional organisers meeting at which Allsebrook was given short shrift by East Midlands organiser Geoff ‘the Marxists are everywhere’ Dickens who told Allsebrook to leave before he’d even sat down. “I swore in the words that followed,” Allsebrook recounts “and went a bit incoherent, it wouldn’t make good reading.” Bless him! “Geoff’s short, abrupt, stubborn manor proves nothing will change in the BNP,” he concludes “and if your views are extreme enough you’ll get away with murder.” We’re hoping for some actual backstabbings within the party any day now!

This is a reference to Cliff Roper who has “spouted a Socialist far left extremist version of nationalism (national socialism?)”. Far be it from us to point out that the BNP has always been an extremist party inspired by national socialism. Roper has “publicised our local suppliers, exposed local members who wrote under pseudonyms on websites in a tactic not dissimilar to those who leaked the membership list, and fuelled the opposition with ammunition to fire at the BNP”. He certainly has and we thank Cliff and his followers for that. What better way to respond in a way that won’t further damage ‘local patriots’ than by airing your dirty laundry in public. Well done Lewis!

Cliff’s wife, Emma Roper, also comes under fire for doing a shit job of organisation (Allsebrook says she is “inept” and has poor literacy skills). Allsebrook sought to replace with one of his faction, Debra Purdy. Emma “was livid about this and rang round members telling them to boycott the group fundraising meetings.” Realising that regional organisers Paul ‘blackshirts’ Hilliard and Dickens “were going have [Cliff Roper] foisted upon Amber Valley at the next election” Allsebrook and Purdy decided to cancel the group’s Christmas fundraiser in an attempt to blackmail the local party, with predictable consequences. Roper stepped up the attacks against Allsebrook on his blog and Allsebrook was ostracised even further. Purdy herself has recently resigned as well.

Cheeky little rodent: Allsebrook at play

Allsebrook claims that he gave up leadership of the local party to Roper in an attempt to bow out quietly. Allsebrook’s verdict is that “[s]ince taking on the group Leader position, Cliff has not imparted his opinion on council agenda items at all, showing no leadership.” Finally, this year, he said “okay then ‘no holds barred,’ and Truthseeker22 started giving Cliff and his small band of wreckers a taste of their own medicine.” He admits that truthseeker22 has been orchestrated from within his own small camp of supporters.

Roper, you may remember, hasn’t been very happy with Allsebrook either, complaining that he had not dealt with queries from this constituents or attended meetings within the community. It seems that neither of the fascists are particularly good at representing their constituents as they’re too busy calling each other nasty names. Naughty boys! It seems they both fell victim to the fascist tendency for everyone to want to be Gruppenfuhrer.

Allsebrook will be particularly upset about having to leave the local party as he was their single biggest donor in last year’s elections, giving over £1,300. This was a source of further suspicions of blackmail and Roper made barbed comments about what the “generous donation” might buy him. Roper then did his own spot of blackmailing by resigning the party whip for a grand total of 6 days before being appeased with leadership of the local party, instead of Allsebrook.

All of this has been driven by the feuds between current dictator and chronic swindler, Nick Griffin, and  a long line of non-entity challengers. Members are either desperate to replace the disastrous liability that is Griffin, or desperate to curry influence with the boss, and sparks have flown between the camps whilst members have left in droves. Roper has also bemoaned how they have lost so many activists that they are having to get together with the Nottinghamshire party, who are in even worse straits, for days out.

Allsebrook’s post has attracted a few comments, one from ‘bikerman1100‘ who chastises him for making “some pretty inflammatory statements” and says that Roper was “legitimate” to name and shame Allsebrook on his blog. In a rare glimpse of sanity he suggests that “Maybe some of these things should only be discussed behind closed doors for the sake of the party.” He also bemoans “The lack of members at meetings” and the “dwindling membership” of a party that is rapidly going down the shitter.

Also there to comment is Michael Clarke, a former BNP candidate who has since fallen by the wayside. He backs Allsebrook saying that the Heanor councillor has “been badly let down by both Derbyshire and Regional Organisers” and is scathing about Cliff Roper’s “intransigence” suggesting that other members might be “unaware of how useless a councillor he has been”.

All in all, another deeply satisfying dagger driven into the shrivelled heart of Amber Valley BNP. Good stuff!

Amber Valley antics

As we reported a couple of weeks ago, Derbyshire BNP are currently a good source of laughs for keen students of BNP infighting, and their latest meeting hasn’t disappointed.  An Amber Valley group meet on Monday evening was addressed by Derbyshire organiser  Paul Hilliard, who shared his vision of different BNP groups combining to “give the UAF a taste of it’s own medicine”. What exactly he meant is unclear, but if you encounter a gaggle of fascists chanting “Nazi scum, ON our streets!”, remember where you heard it first!

Of course The Derby Patriot faction of the party see things differently, with truthseeker22 reckoning Hilliard’s true vision is to become “Grand Dictator of Derbyshire”.  Hope you get a nice uniform with that job, Paul!  The same unhappy blog-writer also takes issue with an Amber Valley meeting having actually been held in Broxtowe – that’s not indigenous! – and is very scornful to have witnessed Emma Roper (aka Self Obsessed Slapper, apparently) cooing over Hilliard on the top table at the meeting.  Emma’s hubby Cllr Cliff Roper had a “thoroughly enjoyable evening”, but unsurprisingly truthseeker22 disagreed, finding the meeting “shambolic”, with the cheap beer being the only saving grace…

Beer must indeed have helped to make the contribution of East Midlands organiser Geoff Dickens more palatable.  Fresh from his rousing turn at a Leicestershire BNP meeting, he again enlightened his audience about the danger of cultural marxism.  Rather than worrying about the international red conspiracy, perhaps Geoff should turn his mind to the fact that his region is owed almost ten grand by party central; reckon you’ve lost that forever to Nick Griffin’s fish-and-chip fund, Geoff.  Can you blame “the marxists” for that?

We look forward to the next installment of “Carry on Derbyshire BNP” with relish!




Zero Marx

What’s left of Leicestershire BNP had a meeting the other day to rally their geriatric fans for a round of tea and biscuits at the village hall. Along with the usual agenda items – rubbish excuses for the party’s fraudulent activity, unjustified optimism about electoral chances – was some rather amusingly paranoid tosh from East Midlands organiser, Geoff Dickens:

[A]lthough the People have never voted in any great numbers for Marxism, yet it exists almost everywhere; it’s ideology had infiltrated the British way of life and it’s influences were now apparent in almost every sphere, especially the media, the Church, multiculturalism, a biased legal system, education, and finance.

Now let’s just forget for a minute the usual far-right nonsense about cultural Marxists eating our children’s brains in the schoolyard and the communists of the CPS, and focus on that last item. Dickens for some reason seems to think that the world of finance is under the secret influence of Marx. We can only assume he means Groucho Marx, the satirist of the ruling classes, rather than Karl Marx, the revolutionary socialist. After all, Groucho did once say that “Money frees you from doing things you dislike. Since I dislike doing nearly everything, money is handy.”

A notorious cultural Marxist

But seriously, suggesting that bankers and stockbrokers are beholden to the hidden hand of those who support worker’s struggle for the creation of a classless society is so delusional that it does make us wonder what the fascist pensioners are drinking in their tea.
