My good friend The General conveys news from the agricultural district that former BNP member and candidate Dave Jones had been approached by a Conservative councilor with intelligence concerning the possibility of a sudden by election in his ward. Apparently said councilor and his group are in need of as much support as they can muster to defeat certain proposals which the council plans to railroad through despite overwhelming public objections and decisive NO vote in a recent referendum..
Dave Jones was informed that he could expect as much 'help and support as is necessary' to win the seat. You can imagine their utter surprise to discover that Dave Jones had resigned and is no longer either a member or candidate for the BNP. He is now a actually a member of the National Front.
You may recall he resigned earlier in the year on principle at the constitutional changes regarding ethnic membership that were hurriedly implemented without the promised all member ballot on the matter. He was promptly slandered for his decision by Northants organizer Rob Walker and others. Their actions have ensured that any chance the BNP may have had of securing a councilor in the area have been irretrievably lost.
Dave Jones is quoted as saying: "It's possible that I could have been persuaded not to leave. At the time I was very angry but nothing was set in stone. I had been approached by the NF but had not yet formally resigned. At that point any talk of my leaving could have been put down to rumour and speculation.
I had spoken to no one in the party about my decision. That was done for me by an outsider without my prior knowledge. Larry Nunn told me I could and would be welcome to change my mind at any time since any final decision about my membership was his. Rob Walkers' personal spite in putting his oar in put paid to all of that.
How can you trust people that will knife you in the back as an indiviual to safeguard our collective interests as a Nation?."
Not only is sleaze, corruption and incompetence endemic throughout the BNP, but they never miss an opportunity, to miss an opportunity.
