Brons dumped by The Brent Group

It seems that the obscure “Brent Group” , set up by a group of disgruntled BNP members have realised that Andrew Brons is not their new messiah after all and have unceremoniously dumped him in favour of the EDL linked British Freedom Party.

The group originating from Somerset was adopted by Brons as the blueprint for his “Parallel Party Structure”, effectively a party within a party.

Instead of Brons forming a new party from the dying corpse of the BNP, he chose to sit on his hands and wait, much to the annoyance of those BNP members frustrated by Nick Griffin’s leadership of the party.

The Brent Group lead by Roger Bennett describes itself on its website as “a focal point for those who have left the old party, been suspended or not renewing membership. The Group belongs to all who join.”

It seems however that their patience with the Yorkshire MEP has finally run out.

In a statement released by Bennett he wrote

“After the BNP leadership election many of us wanted a new party to be launched headed by Andrew Brons MEP. This did not take place and many of our supporters have drifted away into small groups or, sadly, lost interest.”

“The opportunity to launch a new party with any degree of success has now been lost; the potential members are no longer there.”

“My proposal to you is to join and support the British Freedom Party.”

“There is no other alternative for real success. The British Freedom Party, with the Brent Group members will be the only party to have a real chance of success.”

With support for Brons at an all time low, only time will reveal what the ageing MEP’s next move will be.
