While Lee Barnes, whose article this is, tends often to be something of a hyperbolist, much of what he says in this article rings true. I agree with much of it, though obviously not, for example, his cultural nationalism, whose growing relative success on the continent has far more to do with the charismatic and competent leaders of cultural nationalist parties, and the proportional representation of other European countries' electoral systems, than it has to do with the 'ideology' of 'cultural' nationalism itself, as distinct from that of ethnonationalism.

Eddy and the BNP Reform Con
[First published on Lee Barnes' Blog, 21st Century British Nationalism.]
I note on Eddy Butlers latest blog post that he blames the British Freedom Party and myself personally for the failure of the reform group, that he led, to oust Nick Griffin as leader of the BNP.
Thats strange, as I was never even a member of the reform group.
Well to be frank Eddy has to blame anything and anyone but himself, as usual, but the recent revelation of Eddys dealing with the EDP, and the increasingly shrill attempts by his idiot sock puppets like Sharon Ebanks on the BDF forum to justify his duplicity whilst attacking me personally, raise some interesting issues.
I never got involved in the reform group simply as it was Eddys way to gain himself power in the BNP - and I have been opposed to Eddy being the leader of the BNP all along.
The reform group was set up to seek reform inside the BNP, it was then hijacked by Eddy for himself.
Eddy is not suitable to lead the BNP, simply as he is Nick Griffins twin as regards his personality and because of the various 'wrong 'uns' who surround him.
A BNP with Sharon Ebanks, Jim Dowson, Paul Golding and Mark Collett in it would be the political version of The Munsters - a real comic book of a party.
What is tragic most of all though is the damage done to the BNP by the Eddy Butler Reform con itself.
All the time that the Reform Group have been seeking to change the BNP, Eddy and his cabal of drooling, swivel eyed sock puppets hijacked and split the reform group for their own agenda - to tear the BNP apart and allow the EDP to exploit the resultant damage.
Eddy was happy for Simon Bennett to design and run his leadership challenge website and the reform website, but refused to publicly support or back Simon for the abysmal treatment meted out to him and his family. Aside from lying that Simon was behind his website, he is now back in bed with Dowson and Golding - the two equally responsible for the BNP collapse as Griffin is!
The tragedy is that the majority of the members of the reform group were totally unaware of the real agenda behind Eddys takeover of the reform group, as they were being used as much as everyone else who wanted change in the BNP.
This was a disgusting thing to do.
I left the BNP as I believe that Griffin is now a toxic leader who alienates public support for the party, which will be proved when the BNP get ZERO councillors elected apart from those who are unelected into positions on parish councils.
We set up the British Freedom Party as we believe that Griffin will never run a fair leadership election in the BNP under his Stalinist constitution, and therefore staying in the party and hoping for change was a total waste of time.
At no time did we seek to damage the BNP or poach BNP members.
We do not - and never have - sought to steal BNP members from the BNP.
We are Cultural Nationalists, not racial nationalists, and our ideology is as distant from racial nationalism as it is from civic nationalism.
What we wanted, and still do, is for the BNP to remain a viable racial nationalist party so that the racial nationalist ideology exists as a political choice in our so called 'democratic system' for people to vote for and also to ensure those undisciplined members of the BNP who are not motivated by reason but by hate, of which there are a sizeable group sadly, to remain where they are and not to infect our party with their factionalism, hatred of other nationalists and petty ideologlical feuds.
Our problem as a party was that we recruited into the Freedom Party a tiny collection of pseudo-nationalist reactionary Tory egotists whose ill discipline and treachery, learnt by osmosis via them once being in the BNP and the Reform Group, caused damage to the Freedom Parties development.
Luckily they are gone now and we can refocus on growth, but the damage done by this tiny collection of numbnuts and martinets had caused us real problems.
The fact that those people were members of the Reform Group, and also disgruntled ex-members of the BNP with a chip on their shoulders, should have alerted us to their unsuitability as people to be given positions in our party.
We live and we learn.
But the greatest tragedy of all has been the damage done to the BNP by the BNP reform agenda in order for the EDP to benefit.
The BFP want the BNP to do well in elections, just as we want all nationalist political parties to do well in elections ( though we do not regard the EDP as nationalists as they are plastic patriots masquerading as nationalists ) and we despise the damage that has been done to the BNP.
Though we have had issues with Griffin as individuals, and we also believe the BNP as a brand has been damaged by Griffin, we do not want the BNP and its ideology to be destroyed.
The reform agenda has benefited neither British Nationalism nor English Nationalism, all it has done is benefit a cabal of SinnFein adoring civic nationalist lickspittles who want to break up the British union in a fit of political pique and then work with ex-IRA terrorists to destroy the sacred unity of our nation itself.
That is unnaceptable to us as British Nationalists.
I like Eddy Butler, he is a man of enormous talents undermined only by his enormous ego.
If he could keep his ego on a leash, and control his innate Machiavellian nature, then he would be a real potential leader for the BNP.
But he cannot do that - for it is part of his political DNA to play insidious political games in the shadows whilst using his coterie of brainless sock puppets to fetch and carry for him.
The use of the reform agenda to undermine the BNP to benefit the EDP is disgraceful.
Those complicit in that treachery should be ashamed of themselves.
We in the British Freedom Party wanted solely the best for the BNP, until we decided to leave the party and form our own.
The decision taken by Jefferson to launch his own idiot army of BNP sock puppets to attack us on the internet was a very stupid thing to do - simply as we never represneted a threat to the BNP.
Those who like Iron Bru rarely like Pepsi.
There was space enough in the nationaloist political spectrum for both our parties to benefit - but once we were attacked, then we had to respond in kind - and be assured that if we are attacked again in the future by any side at any time we will respond again - with all guns blazing.
We do not just lay there when we are kicked and take it.
Rather we will rip the leg off those that kick us and then club them to death with it - rhetorically and metaphorically speaking of course.
We are nationalists, and nationalists are not cowards.
Peoples best bet is to just leave us alone and let us get on with what we need to do, for the more we are attacked - then be assured we will respond.
But my primary message is this.
I wish to pass on to all BNP candidates brave enough to put their heads above the political parapet and stand for election in the forthcoming local elections all our best.
We hope you do well and that British Nationalism does well, though we also believe that this is not likely to happen.
But the fact remains we salute all those brave British men and women who have chosen to be BNP candidates in the elections.
You are the people whose honourable actions reedem our nations disgrace at the hands of the corrupt political establishment.
We also salute all those other nationalists from all nationalist political parties also standing in the elections and also wish them well.
As for the EDP, we hope they fail to get a single councillor elected.
The leadership of the EDP worked with the plotters in the reform group to undermine British Nationalism whilst seeking to exploit the internal chaos in the British Nationalist movement.
For that they deserve nothing but contempt.
