Griffin: Hardly Mr Popular these days

The BNP seems incapable these days of holding an activity of its own. Last month they were humiliated in London, when they could only manage 133 activists for a national demonstration. Days before in the same spot, the EDL managed some 1200 people.

Last weekend, fewer than twenty BNP members bothered to pay the £15 that party leader Nick Griffin was demanding that people pay to camp in his back garden for a “summer school.” Those who did attend complained they were bothered by “thousands of midges” and endless demands by Griffin and co to help him keep his seat in the European Parliament.

Griffin has been bragging again, that for the second year, the party’s accounts are “in the black”. BNP members are not surprised, the party produces nothing for them to distribute and still has not bothered to pay back the regions the money head office “borrowed” from them over a year ago.

This morning, Griffin has tweeted that the BNP are having a “joint” demonstration in Ashton Under Lyne with a coalition of other far-right extremists.

Last month there was a demonstration there by the same rag-tag group which ended in disaster when the 150 people were shoved around and sent home by the police.

This weekend, with the BNP set to swell the mass ranks, there will probably be about the same number of people and further proof that Griffin has less and less sway in the far-right than he would wish.

Interestingly, the local EDL are also having a demo outside the army careers office in Manchester.
