Important figure: Faiz ul Rasool (left) with Gordon Brown at the Muslim Friends of Labour's annual gala dinner last December. And the party's acceptance of his major donation makes an interesting contrast with Labour's frequent attacks on the Conservatives for taking money from big business.
How exactly he accumulated his money is not clear. But he has been registered at Companies House as the director of four companies, three of which have been dissolved.One of the companies he has been associated with dealt in property, while the other two were food-related businesses.It was his stall at Brixton street market in South London which incurred a £3,000 fine after a hygiene prosecution six years ago. At the weekend Mr Rasool was reluctant to discuss his hygiene fine, and gave little detail about his donation to Labour.
Mr Rasool said: 'The donation is from my personal bank account.'Previous records show the businessman, who lives in a £1million flat in Kensington, gave the party £37,000 in 2008. He also donated to the failed Labour deputy leadership campaign of Home Secretary Alan Johnson. Thanks to his dedication to the party, Mr Rasool is vice chairman of the organisation Muslim Friends of Labour - in which capacity he sat alongside Mr Brown at a fundraising dinner in 2008.
The group was a major donor to Labour, funnelling some £300,000 in to the party, until Electoral Commission rules were changed to require individuals to be named as donors, instead of allowing them to give anonymously through a group. Mr Rasool's own website, 'Faiz4labour' still displays an invitation to allcomers to attend the last Muslim Friends of Labour's last major fundraising dinner, held in London in December, and at which he acted as host. Tickets for the events cost up to £500,000 a head.
Rasool declared on the website: 'The Labour Party is the party that best represents the British Muslim community. 'As we move closer to the next General Election it is vital that all of our friends and colleagues support the party in any way we can.' When does good ol' boy Rasool get his knighthood then Brown?

A hot sunny Saturday April 24th saw over 70 National Front members with activists and supporters totalling over 150 people take to the streets of Kingstanding to celebrate St Georges day to the applause and cheers of the locals and a fanfare of horns from passing motorists. The event saw members and activists from all over England. from as far afield as Devon and Yorkshire, Worcestershire and Newcastle assembled for the event and to commemorate the life of activist Jason Spence who was murdered in the Kingstanding area of Birmingham.
West Midlands police made the decision to allow the NF to steward the event ourselves and, for the entire two and a half mile route, the only police presence was three officers in an unmarked vehicle at a discrete distance. A wreath was laid at the spot at which Jason was killed and a respectful silence observed, after which the march continued on its way back towards the starting point. Local candidate Keith Axon said a few words about our struggle during a short rally.
No opposition to the NF presence was encountered during the day and there was a very encouraging response from local people. Car drivers honked their horns in support and residents of all ages came out of their houses to applaud the National Front march and wave flags. After the march, NF members handed out leaflets for forty minutes or so with no opposition.
Once the day’s political events had been concluded, the marchers retired to a local pub. The Inspector in charge of policing the event came in and congratulated them on their good behaviour and effective organisation which had ensured a smooth-running and trouble-free afternoon.
Thanks must go to all those who helped to make the day a success, in particular NF West Midlands Regional Organiser Tich, who arranged the march with the police, and North East organiser Biggsy, who was responsible for stewarding it. We hope that the positive reaction from Kingstanding residents is reflected in support for Tich who is standing for both Parliament and the Birmingham City Council in the area on May 6th and Keith Axon who is also standing for the City Council.

Among the crowd he discovered a pretty little girl who shared the same birthday. He invited her to the Berghof to join the celebrations. It was the begining of an enduring association between Hitler and the girl. What they dont tell you is, and history will attest................... she was Jewish.

Ashtabula County Judge Tells Citizens To Arm Themselves
Ashtabula County is the largest county in Ohio in terms of land size with over 1,300 square miles of area. However they have recently laid off almost two-thirds of all county deputy sheriffs and they now only have one deputy making patrols, with what few remain being tasked with administrative work, jail guard duty, and prisoner transfers.
A local judge has called on all citizens to procure and carry arms for their defense and to stay on the alert to protect themselves and their neighbors.
Judge Mackey suggests townships residents consider gun ownership.
JEFFERSON — Ashtabula County Common Pleas Court Judge Alfred Mackey is literally sticking to his guns regarding a comment he made to a Cleveland TV reporter earlier this week.
In an interview for a WKYC-Channel 3 story pertaining to layoffs in the Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Department, Mackey suggested that township residents “arm themselves” as a way to ensure personal safety.
Only one road patrol, responsible for the entire county, is assigned to each shift. Further, the department does not have the staffing to perform investigations. The situation prompted Mackey to toss out his suggestion to the reporter.
“I said maybe law-abiding citizens need to consider getting a firearm because it’s going to be dangerous out there, and that’s what concerns me,” Mackey told the Star Beacon. Commissioners Board President Joseph Moroski said Friday he had not seen or heard about the TV news report. “That’s an interesting perspective. I didn’t see the performance,” Moroski quipped.
“I don’t have a comment,” said Commissioner Daniel Claypool, who did hear about the story. “We’re doing everything we can, with all the money that’s available to do the best we can. That’s all we can do.”
Sheriff William Johnson said earlier this week that there are at least 700 persons waiting to serve their sentences in the Ashtabula County Jail, as a result of funding cutbacks to his department. Johnson has only enough staff to keep the jail census at 30. As a result, only violent felons are being incarcerated, and there are 700 folks who should be serving sentences but aren’t. Johnson said their crimes include driving under the influence, petty and grand theft, domestic violence, probation violations, contempt of court and nonsupport. Sentences run from three days to a year.
That situation, combined with the potential for long response times for people who live in remote areas, has Mackey worried. “I’m really concerned with the summer coming, what’s going to take place,” Mackey said. “DUIs, domestic violence. They are all out there.”
He said the first line of defense should always be to call the sheriff’s department and request assistance. The next step should be to call upon neighbors. “They should form a neighborhood watch group,” Mackey said. “If they are in a rural area, they need to take the necessary precautions because it may be awhile before they are going to get help from law enforcement.”
It appears as if Mackey is preaching to the choir, because area gun dealers report a significant rise in handgun sales since the county’s budget crisis hit the sheriff’s staffing levels. “Oh, yes, absolutely, a lot of handguns,” said Jim Retallick, owner of Sports Junction in Geneva. “It seems like an increase (especially) in sales to ladies.”
Retallick says his handgun sales are up by 50 percent compared to last year. Although he has not tracked the location of buyers, from his recollection, he said many of them were from the county’s more-remote areas.
Not all of the increase can be attributed to local conditions, however. Retallick said Americans in general seem to be in a panic and there is nationwide shortage of ammunition. Some people who don’t even own a gun are stockpiling ammo as an investment.
Johnson said he doesn’t have a problem with citizens exercising their constitutional right to purchase a firearm, but he does not want them to be misled about the responsibility that comes with that.
“If people think they are going to protect themselves (from litigation or charges) solely on the argument of not being able to get police to the scene, and someone gets hurt as a result of their actions, people need to realize they can face severe civil, if not criminal, litigation,” Johnson said.
He also said people who are thinking about buying a handgun need to take the appropriate training. Gun owners should not consider their weapon as a substitute for calling 9-1-1 first. Even with just one patrol car on the road, emergency calls are given top priority.
The Ashtabula County Board of Commissioners has placed a 0.5-percent sales tax increase on the ballot in an attempt to boost county revenue for the sheriff, courts and other essential services. Johnson says any comments he makes about the dire state of law enforcement in the county should be taken as fact, not idle threats to sway voters. He warns that the jail situation has the potential of bankrupting the county because it will take so long to clear the waiting list.
The sheriff confirmed earlier this week that he plans to file litigation against the board of commissioners in an attempt to restore his funding and force the court to rule on whether commissioners are legally bound to fund his statutory duties. He plans to wait until after the primary election before filing the complaint, however.
Meanwhile, Mackey, who lives in Saybrook Township, said he took his own advice years ago and bought a gun. “I’ve had threats made,” he said. While the judge encourages citizens to consider the handgun option, he said it was not his intention to become an advocate for it. “I’m not going to be the poster child on this kind of an issue,” he said.

Eugene Terreblanche, Leader of the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB), was found brutally murdered in a racial killing at his farm in South Africa. His ancestors came from France. His grandfather, Etienne Terreblanche (also spelled Terre'Blanche) , was a rebel from the British Cape Colony, who fought on the Boer side. His father was a Lieutenant Colonel in the previous South African Defence Force and also the Commander of his district.
Eugene Terreblanche was selected out of 20,000 able young Police Officers to guard the State President and Prime Minister of that time in South Africa. His Prime Minister's liberal views became a disappointment to Eugene Terreblanche. In 1970, with 6 other kindred souls, they founded the Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB).
From this committee of seven, the AWB emblem, "Three Sevens", was created in contrast with the number 666 of the satanic forces, the AWB being deeply Christan.
His movement increased from 7 founder members to a number of 70 000 out of a White population of 3,5 million.
During public gatherings he drew bigger audiences than any other so-called White leaders locally. However, the White Government turned a cold shoulder towards his advice and warnings and capitulated to the ANC, a Black majority political party.
The new Black ANC Government constructed scandals and false court cases against Eugene Terreblanche with the aid of their agents and the left wing media. The AWB and its general staff, however, could see through the hidden agendas and remained true to him as the only White leader. Up to Saturday he carried the torch of freedom for his nation and was recognised as one of the best orators in the world. Since 1994, 3,000 White farmers have been murdered in racially motivated attacks. The AWB have pledged to carry on, more determined than ever.
The BNP has confirmed it has sacked its head of publicity after he was arrested on suspicion of threatening to kill the leader Nick Griffin (Left).
British National Party bosses have accused Mark Collett (Right), 29, of trying to launch a coup against Mr Griffin. Mr Griffin confirmed that he had contacted the police claiming to have received death threats. Humberside Police said a man had been arrested "on suspicion of making threats to kill" and later bailed.
In a statement, police said: "A 29-year-old man was arrested on Thursday 1 April on suspicion of making threats to kill.
"He was interviewed by Humberside Police detectives and has been released on police bail pending further inquiries. This investigation was initiated as a result of a complaint by a member of the British National Party and inquiries are ongoing." [...]
Mr Collett had been due to contest the Sheffield Brightside seat - currently held by former Labour minister David Blunkett - at the coming general election, widely expected on 6 May. [...]
Party officials were expected to hold a meeting on Monday April 5th to discuss what they say are "urgent organisational matters" and Mr Griffin has said he will make a statement in the next day or two.
Following reports earlier [...] of the resignation of Emma Colgate from her post as BNP manager, the BNP has amended its national contacts spreadsheet. Absent are Colgate, Eddy Butler, the former national organiser and national elections officer, and Mark Collett, the former head of publicity.
The changes confirm the stories circulating on [...] web forums that the unpopular Collett has finally fallen out of favour. A BNP organisers’ bulletin circulated on 31 March referred to “financial irregularities and ‘scamming’ concerning the procurement of print, especially large election print run, leaflets and regular publications including Identity magazine”. It appears that Nick Griffin, the BNP leader, has finally accepted that there is substance to the long-standing accusations that Collett has been making a huge personal profit on the design and print procurement he carries out for the party.
Collett is also accused of leaking “sensitive party information” onto the internet and “feeding lies to certain anti-BNP blog sites”.
The organisers’ bulletin continues: “Earlier this week, the police were made aware of very serious allegations potentially affecting the personal safety of Party chairman Nick Griffin MEP and senior management/fundraising consultant James Dowson. Formal statements have now been made to the police, including by Mr. Griffin.”
The loss of Emma Colgate will be felt in the election effort in the Thurrock constituency, where she was expected to do well. One would hope that the nationalists will put recrimination and suspicion aside until the election has been fought. But I wouldn’t bet on it.
One of the odd things about this affair is the total media silence. I would love to know why a gift story about evil Nazis falling out was of no interest at all, even to the rabidly anti-BNP Mirror. Why do I have a nasty feeling that this can’t be good news?
After what seems like an age, finally a new edition of this superb broadcast.
