Civil War Erupts In The NF

Over the years we have witnessed numerous fallouts and leadership battles within The National Front.

Who could possibly forget the infighting in 1989 that witnessed two rival factions of the NF stand against each other in the Vauxhall By Election with both sides trading insults and punches at the election count.

The modern day National Front is no different and is comparable to a cheaply made television soap opera, lots of drama but with very little substance.

So it should come as no surprise that there is a new internal battle erupting within the party, splitting the NF into two halves.

One faction, led by the former NF chairman Ian Edward has seized control of the official National Front website, changing the hosting company, removing most of the content and changing the websites passwords.

Ian Edward resigned his position as NF Chairman earlier in the year with Kevin Bryan being chosen to be the new leader of the party.

Bryan claims that Ian Edward along with Bernadette Jaggers and Steve Rowland have been causing as much trouble as possible for the party.

Edward is still officially registered as Party Chairman and Nominating Officer with the Electoral Commission and has refused to remove himself from the registered documents.

The faction led by Kevin Bryan have submitted new paperwork naming Bryan as the new chairman and Aberdeen’s Dave McDonald as Nominating Officer, yet The Electoral Commission have refused to accept the changes until Ian Edward signs the relevant forms.

Steve Rowland has also been keeping himself busy in the background, ringing around the various members, attempting to drum up support for the Ian Edward group.

Edwards group is claiming that it has the support of six branches yet this figure has been disputed by Kevin Bryan.

Time will tell which group will wrestle control of the NF, we hope it is a long drawn out battle.
