Tu ne cede malis, sed contra audentior ito

Stay in and work for new leadership

I entreat every member of the British National Party to renew their membership of the party as soon as possible, if they have not yet already done so.

Notwithstanding the appalling quality of the party's leadership, which has worsened over the last twelve months, our loyalty should remain with the BNP, and the cause of our people's fight for national survival that it champions.

The party is more important than its leadership, much more in this case, and we should continue our work to rescue the BNP from its corrupt and incompetent leadership from the position in which that work may most effectively be undertaken, that is from within the party.

Mr Griffin is currently facing numerous problems, mainly of his own making, and unfortunately, due to his misguided, and selfish, reluctance to do the only decent and honorable thing by resigning as party leader, is dragging the BNP down with him.

One thing seems certain, something will have to give sooner or later. When that happens it will be vital that a sufficiently sizeable corps of experienced activists remain members of the party, in order that the necessary measures may be taken for the party's immediate survival, and subsequent reunion and re-launch.

Griffin, in his conceited folly, is planning to hold an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of the party, later in the year, in order, ostensibly, to ratify the changes to the party constitution that were outlined at the annual conference in December 2010, but in reality for the primary purpose of granting himself a four year term of office as leader, an oppressive burden he tried to impose on the members once before, at an EGM in 2008, but which was thwarted by the strength of grass roots' opposition on that occasion.

Until last year, when it was regrettably changed, every member of the BNP, no matter how recently he joined, who took the trouble to attend an EGM, had a vote. The current position is that only members with an unbroken membership of at least two years are entitled to vote. This is an important consideration to bear in mind. The party constitution currently gives the national chairman, the leader, enormous power, which Griffin wishes to increase even more. The only way, other than via a leadership election, in which that power may be checked, and called to account for its misdirection of itself, is through an EGM. That is why it is absolutely imperative that every BNP member, no matter how badly they may have been wronged by Griffin and his minions, renews their membership, without delay.

Obviously, it is better to retain an unbroken membership, if at all possible, but if that should prove to be impossible, currently, because a member has been late in renewing, it is nevertheless better to rejoin the party as a 'new' member than not to be a member at all.

Remember: you have to be in it to win it.
