Comments on: March highlights BNP controversy http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2009/08/17/march-highlights-bnp-controversy/ Insights from the UK and beyond Tue, 15 Nov 2016 20:30:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: wrathofthemath http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2009/08/17/march-highlights-bnp-controversy/comment-page-1/#comment-10879 Thu, 03 Sep 2009 11:58:45 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/?p=3718#comment-10879 I think they now call it astroturfing – in this case leaving as many pro BNP messages as possible on any site which has reported on them to create the appearance that there is a groundswell of support for them. In america there is currently a similar campaign to derail Obama’s health reforms.

I love the way the UAF are being portrayed as thugs and fascists when The Daily Mail, The Guardian and The News of the World have all run stories showing BNP supporters at this ‘festival’ burning golliwogs, throwing sponges at a man in the stocks dressed as Obama, wearing white pride t-shirts and pulling Hitler salutes. And they claim not to be right wing or racist?

Thier jamboree is posited as a family fun thing – it isnt.
The bnp use this event to spread thier vile lies and it really should be stopped.

Next year maybe, and you can stuff your free speech as you want to deny it to others.

It is in fact heartening to see that they feel so embattled that they feel the need to try and discredit any voice of opposition to their, as the march illustrated, minority views. The cost of policing was an unfortunate result of the BNP’s persistence in going where they are not wanted. Thanks to the people of Cordon, many of whom were pipping and tooting their horns and waving us on in support. Apparently they’ll be glad to see the back of you …as will we all.

Pity it was only the one place in ‘Multi Cultural’ Britain that I actually felt safe.

Although we can all see that continued immigration is dragging this country down (no jobs, overloaded NHS, shortages of schools, food shortages forecast, increased problems with drugs, gang shootings, rapes, STD’s and accelerating Islamification, etc,)and cannot be justified, this cannot be stopped until we extract ourselves from the EU. It is because Labour needs their votes to hang on.
The possibility of 70-80 million Muslim Turks soon being free to come here is just one example.

The majority of countries who belong to the Commonwealth are independant sovereign states who owe no allegiance to the Crown. What purpose does it serve?

And so you should have, considering that each anti-fascist protester cost the British taxpayer over three hundred pounds for your little day out.
