It seems the banning of National Action activists by the London BNP pornographer Steve Squire has boiled down to whether you drink alcohol and buy your own peanuts at a BNPO meeting
Never mind the Nazism, factionalism and threats of violence by the teeny-bop nazis, what has really upset Squire is clearly stated in the text he has been sending out to members in London regarding the activities of Mark Jones aka Mark James of National Action/Nick Griffin fan club infamy.

Much ado is often made about the group National Action which is partly the alternative name for when the British National Party's (BNP) youth wing (YBNP) want to behave like Nazis.
For the last couple of years the former and currently expelled leader of the BNP, Nick Griffin has been encouraging some of his young followers to engage with the "radical" group as the BNP ground to a standstill.
One of the leading lights in National Action is Mark James, aka Mark Jones. Jones was entrusted by Griffin to leak a series of internal BNP documents that attacked the BNP leadership last month. He was also very close to Garron Helm, the young man from Liverpool jailed yesterday for an anti-Semitic tweet to a Liverpool MP.
This morning the BNP in London has "proscribed" National Action, and in particular Mark Jones/James.
The BNP fails to mention he was until recently a very senior member of their youth wing. Instead they claim he "infiltrated" the party.
Nick Griffin will now declare this further evidence of a Zionist plot.

The week began with telling the tale of how a gang of old nazis got drunk in Preston in memory of John Tyndall, the founder of the British National Party (BNP). Most of those who attended had betrayed him in life so it only seems fair they meet every year to remember what a bitter and twisted nobody he was.
I doubt Tyndall would be turning too much in his grave if he was to see the current state of the party he founded. When he was being hounded out of the party by Nick Griffin he did warn that it would all go pear shaped eventually. It took a little longer than he imagined, obviously.
What happens in the BNP now, is anyone's guess. Despite very mixed messages from Griffin as to what is be done to save his bacon and at the same time (now) destroy the party, the wind has slightly gone out of the sails of both factions.
Griffin's side is claiming that they have some 300 people already backing him in his bid to launch a "new" movement. Whether 300 people can actually raise enough cash annually to keep Griffin and his entourage of family, syconphants and friends bathed in trips to Europe, the off-license and expensive steak houses is unlikely. You can bet your bottom dollar that Griffin will be demanding a hefty stipend for leading his own fan club.
Griffin's plan, according to his daft son in law Angus, is to exile himself- like Mosley did, in foreign climes. That way, thinks Griffin, he will be able to evade the establishment of those hidden Zionists who are trying to hound him for the money he owes everywhere, but also allow him to live cheaper than he could do in the UK. Then he could drive across Europe and through the Channel Tunnel occasionally, deliver a speech, sell some cheap fags and booze (like the good old days in the European Parliament) to his supporters, and lead a revolutionary street movement etc, etc.
France has been declared a family favourite, but to make this pipe dream really work, Griffin is suggesting even further into the continent. Hungary is a warm favourite with Griffin. Our own man there does confirm that a carton of Benson & Hedges is something like £26 on a good day for the English pound and knocking out cartons of fags for £50 a pop could be a nice little earner for Griffin if he manages to get his supporters to pay his petrol over on visits. Isn't this plan rather bizarre?
Who knows, but Griffin's always chased a quid no matter how daft or incoveneient the plan actually is. His London meeting that was set for next week has now been postponed due to the venue they had being "double booked", apparently. Yes, in a city of eight million people there is only one meeting room! There certainly won't be 300 people supporting Griffin when they realise he's actually going on another piss up with his European friends instead of a night of coleslaw and baked beans in London.
Those who control what is left of the BNP, the intellectually challenged "Wigton" faction have now officially stopped suspending/expelling people. What with membership renewal time fast approaching, they still have some 700 members to convince to follow them into oblivion for next year.
With this in mind, they're preparing their annual conference in Blackpool for the end of November. Interestingly, the Griffin faction will also be in Blackpool at the same time. Aware of how this could turn nasty, Patrick Harrington is suggesting that the BNP does not go to Blackpool at all. Wherever the party does end up, it will not be at their previously favourite venue. No doubt Harrington knows of all kinds of clubs, bars and hotels around the country that cater for people with peculiar tastes..
Blackpool will also play host to more naughty nazis earlier in November, when they hold a demostration over the missing school girl Charlene Downes. Charlene's Mother, Karen, should probably help with the police investigation and maybe one day the poisonous little cretin Jack Renshaw will grow up.
And finally, Eddie Stampton's glamour published and ghost written autobiography has hit the bedroom floors of his drunken friends. No fewer than a whole five copies of his published work of fiction have been delivered to Eddie.

I don't know if the sausages were particularly morbid or not, but there was apparently very much a "generous buffet" to be had on the weekend as a host of British nazis met in Preston to remember that they will all die one day. One of them even popped his cloggs before the meeting.
Yes, it was the annual meeting in memory of dead lunatic John Tyndall, the founder of the British National Party (BNP), master of the Aryan comb-over, lover of Jack boots and hater of Jews. They (Jews, apparently) were once described by "JT" (as his friends and admirers liked to call him) as "rotting like maggots on the corpse of the white race." He was a cheery old git, obviously.
One person even traveled all the way from the United States to hear a gang of people who, in the main, were not even on speaking terms with Tyndall when he popped his jack boots back in 2005 in the middle of a court case where he was up before the beak with none other than Nick Griffin. Tyndall probably felt Griffin would one day try and feed off the corpse of the BNP, too. There was no love lost between those two by the way; Griffin had not long before expelled Tyndall from the very party he had formed in his own image.
There was a real smorgasboard of talent in the room even if the buffet was not Kosher. Among the tasty talent on offer was Andrew Brons, who had a brief flirtation with Tyndall during the 1960's. Brons turned against Tyndall in 1980 and took over the leadership of the National Front (NF) from him in quite acrimonious circumstances. He then later joined the BNP once he was certain that Tyndall was gone (or dead) and has never previously had anything particularly nice to say about Tyndall. But, in death, we are more popular than we are alive, and as Brons's own political party the British Democratic Party (BDP) is also breathing its final breaths, Brons decided to put in an appearance and quaff galons of ale and red wine whilst he pondered his own mortality.
The list of groups represented at the meeting is an indication that the far-right is not "growing" even if you stumble upon it on the internet and find it repulsive. The NF, Northern Patriotic Front (NPF), British Movement, Blood and Honour, London Forum, National Action, BNP, BDP, New British Union and Church of the Creator were all there and there were only forty odd people in the room. Still, as the host did brag on his website yesterday, "a very enjoyable social was held at another city centre venue, which continued well into the morning. There were a few sore heads at the H&D office the following day!" It's not really an office, more of a grubby terraced house to be fair.
Richard Edmonds, for years the man Tyndall would not allow to wear trousers to do housework, also spoke. I'm not sure what he said, but after forty-odd years of banging on about Jews, I guess they got a mention. It has certainly been forty odd years for Richard. According to the write up of the event, Edmonds is a Directorate member of the National Front. I guess he lied to the BNP organisers when he spoke at their meeting last month, then.
"Benny" from the nazi rock band "Whitelaw" also spoke at the event. Looking tanned and not very Aryan, Benny does love a good buffet. I once saw him at an NF buffet a few years ago that was later described as being "sumptuos". So he knows where to go for a sausage roll does Benny, even if he has no sirname to put on the invite. It's Benny Bullman, by the way...
Serial pest Peter Rushton also got to speak. If missing a comb-over and a buffet isn't going to make Tyndall roll over in Valhalla, then the thought of Rushton, an employee of the Iranian government that Tyndall absolutely hated turning up to speak at his memorial event, most surely would. I'm not sure what Rushton had to say, but if he wants to keep his job working for the Iranianians it will have been about Jews, and the fact that they fabricated their death in the Holocaust.
Such is the life of a generous nazi buffet

Life in the British National Party's (BNP) head office in Wigton, Cumbria must be lively. Between all of the alleged cocaine use and adultery, there must be comical moments when the new leader Adam Walker runs in and shouts "there's trouble at mill" or perhaps, "wake up Clive, the end is near."
So close to death is the party that it has actually left itself in a will to Clive. At the close of play on Thursday night there has been 107 resignations from the party and some 22 suspensions and sackings. Not without a sense of humour, someone at the Wigton office got hold of a twitter account on the weekend and tweeted that Nick Griffin had moved to France. That may well be the case, but also claiming that Adam Walker is "in control" of the BNP is an entirely different matter.
Last we heard, Nick Griffin's delightfully idiotic son in law, (like the rest of the family, previously on the party pay roll) had taken the party's van away with him and not returned it. Other than using it to squirrel away all of his Father in law’s prized possessions, it's unlikely that Angus Matthys is using the van for moonlighting in another profession. Not only does he not have the gumption, he is bone idle. When he and Griffin's daughter were living in Northern Ireland "running" the BNP's offices there, the two of them spent most of their time in the flat they rented, eating Take Away food and watching television whilst allowing their puppy to soil just about every square inch of carpet they had.
Walker and Jefferson appear now to be trying to completely strangle the BNP to death. I doubt they will be too distraught by the loss of their merchandising wing, Excalibur. We've exposed previously the absolute junk and filth it sells. Alwyn Deacon, who "owns" it, has now fallen in completely with Nick Griffin's side so has launched it as independent of the party.
Jefferson and Walker are also cutting off the few remaining campaigns the party was involved in around the country. The anti-Mosque campaign in Croydon seems to have stalled, while the Bolton anti-Mosque campaign has been gifted to the Griffin faction after local BNP organiser Bryn Morgan was sacked from post over the weekend.
The Griffin side, in response, are faring little better. Griffin is giving a host of mixed messages to his supporters, which range from resigning from the party to carrying on as usual. Jack Renshaw even managed 17 votes in an election last week, even though he is expelled from party.
Insiders tell us that Griffin has decided that the bulk of the wills left to the BNP were in fact left to the party of which he was constitutionally the leader so the £10m everyone is fighting over, should revert to whichever party he leads! Despite having a degree in law from one of the world's finest universities, it does appear that Griffin takes legal advice from a man that sells him magic beans.
Walker and Jefferson have also decided to humiliate the "popular" former North West regional organiser Mike Whitby. Foolish Whitby it appears, once went cap in hand to Clive Jefferson for a loan. What is it your Mother warns you about borrowing money from sharks? Whitby has now been asked to repay £565 he borrowed from Jefferson/The BNP when he was facing eviction some years previously. Whitby had apparently thought it was a gift-I presume one he did not declare to the social?
The Griffin roadshow comes to London later this month. This should be interesting. London BNP is allegedly the source of a number of "revenge porn" pictures and videos apparently being sent out of members of the Griffin faction to their families and workplaces.
Griffin has decided that his new "organisation" will target the Labour party with the infamous paedophile leaflet that Walker and Jefferson have had withdrawn. On the 22nd October he will address his London supporters over a buffet of coleslaw and baked beans! I kid ye not...
All I know is, I will not be visiting one particular coffee shop in Leeds if that is how Lindsey Reynolds cleans the coffee tables.

Let's be generous and say 300 supporters joined the EDL demonstration in Birmingham today. As pre-arranged, they gathered at Bar Risa on Broad Street to top themselves up from their cans of Special Brew already consumed on their journey there.
At around 1pm they set off on their epic 5 minute walk to their 'Rally' at Centenary Square. Within 100 yards their march came to an abrupt halt as they decided, in their own inimitable way, that the lone anti-fascist protester on route needed attacking! Luckily for him, the police were on hand to intervene and usher him away. The remainder of the well supported counter demonstration were tucked away in Chamberlain Square.
That static location and huge Police presence ensured the two rival factions could not face each other, but at least it meant the EDL were not free to roam around wonderful, multi-cultural Brum! In the square the speeches began with the latest incumbent Chairman, Steve Edowes, finally addressing his followers and proving he's not mute. Perhaps being in his native West Midlands helped him recover from the shyness he'd been showing to date? As is usual, so many of EDL members just can not help themselves and simply have to resort to type.
A 17 year old, slight built male member of the EDL LGBT division was punched in the chest by another thuggish, bonehead EDL supporter in a totally unprovoked assault. It left the poor victim in tears and traumatised for the rest of the afternoon. It's not clear if it was the Star of David flag he was draped in or his Sexuality that sparked the red mist in his fellow EDL attacker?
Midway through the rally, 3 Asian youths were led by Police away from the edge of the square on Broad Street. This led to a mass exodus from the square of EDL supporters who rushed to throw missiles and insults at the trio and thereby leaving the square almost empty! The Police swiftly gained control again and the EDL shuffled back to more drones of wisdom from their speakers, the demo was pretty much over by 2.30 as supporters began nodding off and drifting away! Next scheduled National Beano for the EDL is in Luton on 22nd November.
Will their numbers be even more pathetic than this? Will Tommy Robinson / Stephen Yaxley-Lennon make a surprise appearance on his own doorstep? Watch this space!!!!

Ousted former BNP leader Nick Griffin held a large and stormy meeting in St Helens last night as 80 of his supporters gathered to hear him speak.
Griffin has decided that as well as battling for control of the BNP leadership (with plans he outlined at a private meeting before hand) he is to launch a new militant street group based on the French outfit 'Generation Identity', who are mainly angry young men who carry out militant activities against Muslims and the Jewish community.
Griffin is suggesting that his group undertake self-defence lessons etc, etc
HOPE not hate has covered the activities of the French group previously.
Griffin already has his fingers in a similar pie with the group National Action. It is not the first time that Griffin has tied to model himself as a radical militant. He is of course some thirty years older than last time.
It appears Griffin has also retreated to live in France, as before.

We don't hear much about The English Democrats thankfully, their little England brand of politics was effectively blown out of the water when they decided to import large numbers of dregs from the BNP.
One of the main reasons the English Democrats support plummented away was the bizarre and abusive behaviour of Steve Uncles, who is the South East organiser for the English Democrats and is effectively number 2 in the party behind chairman Robin Tilbrook.
So his latest disgusting and racist posting on Facebook is par for the course.

Mike Whitby is a very popular member and local organiser of the British National Party (BNP). In the past he has stood as a "local" candidate for them in two different countries.
That's quite common in the BNP.
When the BNP's troubles started some three months ago, Whitby was sounded out as a potential mediator. He was to be one of the organisers' of tomorrow night's meeting in St Helens where Nick Griffin is set to announce his "way forward" for the rest of the BNP.
As a result, Whitby was relieved of his duties by the party last night and his party email address used to send a notice to BNP members that the meeting has been cancelled.
In fact, every party email address is now under control of the party leadership and the contents of all emails are being scrutinised for signs of disloyalty.
Members of the BNP have been ringing our office for days now telling us the location of Griffin's meeting. I bet they don't know that Paul Telford is actually hosting an earlier meeting at which Griffin will choose his leadership team?

The new leadership of the British National Party (BNP) have hit back at their former leader Nick Griffin and his mounting number of rebel supporters over their allegations of financial mismanagement.
To put it into context, Nick Griffin seemed very happy with the way things were going in the party and their secret financial affairs until the party booted him out. More over, Griffin is panicking because he had hoped the BNP would continue to foot the bill for a number of wild court cases he engaged in while Chairman of the party. He also hoped he could dump a large amount of his personal debts on the party too.
We've lost count of how many people have been sacked or expelled by Jefferson and Walker but the figure is believed to be around twenty members. To be fair to Jefferson and Walker, other than themselves, most of those gone are the sort that had a habit of bringing shame on the party anyway.
Fascists always fall out over money. Given that so few of them have ever done a proper day's work in their lives it still amazes me that anyone would trust them with their hard earned cash.
And so, we now have the second part of Jefferson and Walker making a film talking about what good people they are and hitting back at the claims Griffin has made. If the first one was not bad enough the second video instalment is worse. Hilariously so.
Over forty seven minutes Clive Jefferson talks about his important work in getting people to sign their worldly good over to the party before they die. It's important work Clive acknowledges, and sometimes he goes with a "friend" (for legal reasons I cannot say any more about that) and sometimes they even "stay over" to complete the work. Nice.
If Jefferson has not already bored the person to death, they then sign on a piece of paper that Jefferson takes back to the BNP's office in Cumbria to be scrutinised. One assumes this is scrutinised by Patrick Harrington, with whom Griffin, Clive etc, used to enjoy so many perks of the job.
If you do not watch/cannot be bothered finishing with watching forty seven minutes of Clive Jefferson waffling on, I can confirm he sniffs 137 times during the video. At some point, you kind of start wishing that Walker would give him a bloody Kleenex to blow his nose, or at least remind him that the Griffin faction are already alleging that cocaine use is rife in the BNP's offices. But no, Jefferson sniffs away, turning swivel eyes into the camera.
At one stage, Walker causes confusion in poor old Clive Jefferson's head by asking when the problems with wills began. Jefferson gets very confused and concerned. Did he mean wheels? The wheels are coming right off now he begins to think in the back of his head, before realising his boss meant the actual "wills" that people have been made to write to the party. Clive fiddles with his belt, for a moment I thought he was going to make a more interesting video than the one we are forced to suffer, but no.
"The only time that a problem was invented [sniff]..(was) a couple of weeks after your Chairmanship [sniff] and this dodgy dossier was threw on the table. [sniff]."
Jefferson later claims he has been communicating with a barrister. Unfortunately, Walker has to clarify that as Clive wants to have a long winded chat about it first.
"A spade's a spade, Adam, more lies..." Jefferson tells the Chairman. "Nobody's happy about Nick [Griffin] going bankrupt, right.." Yes, there's a lie. Walker and Jefferson have actually loved every minute of it. News that Griffin is selling his farm house in Wales was actually sent out by Jefferson to their side in the split on Friday night. Jefferson, Walker and Harrington are positively delighted that Griffin is going bankrupt. As far as they're concerned, the sooner Griffin is back to eating road kill, the better!
Expect a rather sordid dossier in response to Griffin's attack to be released any day now. The only thing holding it up is that it is being prepared by Chris Barnett and may embarrass the current London Organiser.
They way things are going, Barnett may as well pop around here and let us fill in all the juicy bits for him
It's going to run and run.

Ousted British National Party (BNP) boss Nick Griffin is pushing ahead with the launch of a parallel party.
Another swathe of senior members have found themselves expelled over the last two days. As well as Jack Renshaw of gay dog and Thunderbirds fame, violent racist thug Mick Braun from Havering has been expelled too.
Braun has been one of the leading lights in pushing rumours to anti-BNP groups of alleged drug dealing from the BNP's offices in Cumbria.
The meeting next Wednesday coincides with a regional meeting which Griffin has decided he is still in a position to preside over.
The expelled members seem keen to just carry on and ignore the party head office. Not surprising given that the head office is already proving incompetent. However, give that Braun has bragged how he would like to throw acid into the face of Asians, the new leadership has finally done something right.

The British National Party (BNP) sent me an email last Sunday. Their new Chairman was bragging that the party had raised £1500 toward the cost of standing a candidate in the South Yorkshire Police & Crime Commissioner elections.
"Based on this brilliant response, we're set to meet our target" he wrote.
Well, the candidates have been announced, but there is no BNP candidate.
I guess it is business at usual at the BNP, no matter who is in charge.

When Stephen Lennon, the criminal thug who launched and leeched from the English Defence League (EFL), quit the organisation last October, liberals the world over were beside themselves with joy. They were under the impression that he had given up a life of hate. I could not see where they were getting this from.
I found myself on a radio show questioning his sudden conversion whilst Lennon was on the phone shouting down the line about women in Burka’s etc, etc, etc.. His sponsors, the Quilliam Foundation, said that he was only echoing a mainstream opinion. Fair enough. Bad me for not being the forgiving sort.
Even when he was promising his hate monger friends in the US that he had not changed I was still very much told that I was wrong to doubt him and his efforts.
Then he went to prison for mortgage fraud and upon his release claimed that the prisons were run by Muslims, not the prison service. Bad me. I was unaware of this.
For the last couple of weeks Lennon has been very active on twitter. He seems to be scouring the media for stories about Muslims behaving badly. Bad ones only.
Last night he hit pay dirt. He tweeted the video of the beheading of Salford man Alan Henning within minutes of it being released.
It seems Lennon (called "Tommy Robinson" by the fools who indulge him in his criminal lifestyle,) has never really stopped with his constant fear, loathing and hatred of Muslims.
So, bad me. I am reminded of the other thing I said when asked about his convenient conversion; I never pat a dog that still barks at me. Silly me.

Well, this was the week when the British National Party (BNP) decided to commit Hara-Kiri and expel their former leader Nick Griffin.
Don't get me wrong-I'm all in favour of nazis destroying themselves, and yes, Hara-Kiri is a reference to the current Chairman practising Japanese martial arts. It's all just such a gift.
Contrary to people who tell try to tell us that the far-right is on the rise (they saw it on the internet don't you know), history does dictate that the final death knell for a gang of fascists must always be struck by one of their own. And the BNP in particular has been going at each other with hatchets since 2009.
And so between them this week, Clive Jefferson (real name Aitken, soon to be exposed as a convicted fraudster by Nick Griffin's team) and Adam Walker (disgraced former school teacher with a penchant for chasing after young boys while armed with a knife) held a little meeting on Wednesday night and decided to expel Griffin. That the long winded statement that followed contained at least three long words is evidence enough that someone else actually worded it for them.
That same person has also scripted a video for Jefferson and Walker to be sent out to the members explaining why they have sacked Griffin. It should be painfully pleasurable watching the two idiots when it is finally released.
Griffin has refused to accept the decision. Unfortunately for him, the party's constitution has been altered (again) to make his expulsion perfectly constitutional. It's also taken out the paragraph that Griffin had put in saying the party is liable for his legal billls.
Griffin is now telling his supporters that when he is back in charge of the BNP it will be a slimline, hardline, revolutionary, militant, dynamic nationalist street movement. But let's be honest, this factional fight is over who gets their hands on the filthy lucre the party is expecting to fall into their laps once the Grim Reaper has visited enough of those poor pensioners who had pens thrust into their hands and were forced to sign wills leaving the party their worldly goods. As we did warn a while ago, the BNP does prefer its members to be dead. And when they do die, they piss the poor sod's money up spectacularly.
The rumour from some quarters is that Griffin will form a new party. His supporters also seem to want him to do the same. The fools. That is very unlikely. If anything, Griffin will try and form a parallel party using the name 'The Real BNP' or 'Constitutional BNP' something that he learned from his days in the National Front (NF) and hope it chokes the current incarnation into submission.
Similarly, if he loses this factional fight (like he did in the NF), he'll also try and destroy the BNP so that nobody can have it-like he also did in the NF. In the dying days of his control of the NF, Griffin raised the weekly donation to the party by the largely unemployed "Cadre" to five pounds per week. He then pissed off to live in a church in France, got pissed and lost his eye in an incident with a shot gun pellet. So if history teaches us anything, there's loads more fun to come.
Griffin will begin building for the future at a meeting in St Helens next Wednesday. When he last addressed a meeting there, in March, his bodyguard was arrested. Griffin is so desperate to build on his already obvious majority of the support among members and supporters that he is even willing to now hang around with the National Front. Last night he turned up at a protest outside of a Premier Inn hotel in Bolton in what he and his followers were trying to convince people was actually an "Asylum hostel". It mattered not that the Asylum seekers had left there already.
Tomorrow there are protests by the far-right in Rotherham and Newcastle. It'll be interesting to see how many of those who have apparently "invaded the internet" manage to get out from behind their computer screens and actually do something.

The expulsion by the British National Party (BNP) of their former leader Nick Griffin has created national news headlines.
BBC News 24 even ran a blow by blow update late last night. Internal BNP documents are falling like confetti. Some are physically being shoved into our hands. A dirty war has been looming, it has now arrived.
At HOPE not hate we have been giving an up to date account of the internal wranglings in the party from the moment Griffin stood down. Even then we said he had been pushed. I'll go as far now to say he was kicked.
How did Nick Griffin lose such control of the party he shaped so acutely? Over the past two months we have blogged about the ongoing turmoil since Griffin was ousted. As far back as June we were predicting he was to be challenged and potentially deposed by a faction around Adam Walker.
Griffin's arrogance is as notorious as are his sticky fingers. He ran the party up the opinion polls and simultaneously down to near bankruptcy. For those who clung onto him, the ride was rewarding. His greed was only ever matched by his wayward generosity. He made 'Gurus' out of fools and elevated the very group that have expelled him way beyond where they would have risen in an ordinary party. And now things are really bitter.
There was an explosion of rage within the party on Tuesday afternoon when it became apparent that HOPE not hate was being fed information from the very heart of the split. Senior figures in both factions pointed the finger at each other. Was it for ideological gain or plain old financial gain?
Who knows. One prominent figure yesterday claimed he had been asked to leak details by both factions.
The war is now turning very dirty. The new Chairman and his team claim that Griffin made threats of violence towards them as well as causing division. Certainly the documents that Griffin has written are full of scaremongering-but the most dishonest thing about the documents is the fact that he refuses to accept any responsibility for the BNP's financial mess. The fact is that Griffin is a walking financial time bomb that desperately needs to explode inside the BNP.
Between them, during the years when their joint activities and behaviour helped shed thousands of BNP members, Griffin, Harrington, Walker and Clive Jefferson amassed a mountain of dirt on each other. They believed, together, they were impenetrable. Among some of their most outrageous deeds were Jefferson and Walker kidnapping and holding as a hostage a factional rival until cash could be delivered.
They thumbed their noses at angry Loyalist paramilitaries, strolled around issuing threats to dissenters and managed by hook or by Clive's crook, to persuade people to bequeath the party future funds.
There is now nothing left of the BNP. It's an empty shell. The party itself is not worth fighting over. It can barely keep itself afloat and membership has been in free-fall for a good three years.
Only bitterness, anger and greed opens its doors for business every morning. That and fighting over who is responsible for Nick Griffin's debts and who can get their hands on a future-forecast of ten millions pounds.
And now the dishing of dirt begins. Allegations of drug use, drug dealing, past and present 'gangsterism' and adultery are alleged to be on their way. So to is the resurfacing of the vile rumour about what happened in the toilets at one drunken Blackpool conference. Griffin has allegedly moved his personal effects to France to avoid what is often inevitable when fascists fall out.
What Griffin won't be doing is joining UKIP or Britain First. For a start neither would have him and finally, because we often forget, Griffin has an ideological bent for leadership that is so damaging, he destroyed the National Front in the 80's and very nearly the BNP in the nineties.
Griffin, Walker, Jefferson and Harrington are beyond employment in the real world. Fascism and other people's money have always been the BNP's poison. Now it will kill off everything just to attempt to survive

After a month of wrangling and forming factions, Nick Griffin has been expelled by the British National Party (BNP) this evening.
Griffin was expelled after a meeting of the party's "conduct committee" which was chaired by new leader Adam Walker and party treasurer Clive Jefferson.
This is quite an extraordinary step.
Griffin is unable to challenge the decision by use of a solicitor as he has a habit of never paying his bills-in particular with regard to the legal profession.
He is due to receive a formal letter tomorrow morning. That’s if the bailiffs have not already taken possession of his home in Wales.

The British National Party (BNP) held two meetings in the North West last night. The first meeting was in Blackpool, at the Tangerine Club. For legal reasons, we cannot tell you what was top of the agenda.
On this rare occasion, I shall actually address very briefly the people who went to the meeting, in particular those who huddled in the bar whispering before and after the meeting: Deleting entries on the membership list does not make people/persons any less a member. There are more copies of the BNP membership list floating around than there are remaining members. The other thing is, it really is time that Karen Downes cooperated with the police in Blackpool. And it's not just me and Jenna who think that, either.
Over in Eccles, forty BNP members who have declared themselves supporters of ousted dictator Nick Griffin, attempted to storm a meeting being addressed by Adam Walker, their new leader.
The 'Griffinites' (now calling themselves the "Real BNP") found themselves confronted by Clive "The Undertaker" Jefferson instead. It appears Jefferson would rather face an angry mob of BNP members than take another punch to the back of the head from Walker.
Armed with a series of further leaked documents that Griffin made available to his supporters earlier that day, Jefferson was given a very rough ride. An emboldened Jack Renshaw (minus his gay dog?) got so lippy to Jefferson that he threatened to break his nose.
Now they are arguing as to who told "the reds" where the meeting was. I'll own up to this one. It was me!
Griffin tried to email the entire membership during the day, but the silly Billy has still not mastered how do a complete mailing. Griffin is in serious trouble financially-he claims to the tune of some £300,000 as a result of the actions of Walker and Jefferson. He also accuses the pair of getting Patrick Harrington to "pervert" the party constitution. Clever choice of wording, Nick. Alternatively, he could have said that Harrington had “whipped the constitution into shape.”
In another email, to Walker, Griffin even brings up the poor Belfast printer he had sent to prison for daring to demand monies that he was owed were paid back.
Despite continually saying that it was lies that his own actions when Chairman left BNP members open to creditors, it now appears that Griffin is acknowledging as much now he is no longer Chairman.
Griffin was supposed to turn up at last night's meeting, but it appears with both he and Walker calling on the services of Yorkshire BNP he did not feel he could get the numbers in case things went pear-shaped. There was a small contingent of the outright Nazi North West Infidels there, just in case things did turn fruity.
Griffin is now calling for an open debate with Walker at a party conference. The thinking among some in the party, even Griffin supporters, is that so toxic are Walker and Griffin, that they should both step aside and allow Mike Whitby of pigeon shack fame, take over as leader.
Walker did address a meeting-about seven people were allowed in to see him speak at a standby venue, with Jefferson sitting at the front.
