BNP Website, 22 November
Labour is in retreat, the Tories are in
meltdown and the common sense of the British people is winning
through! That's the verdict from Blackburn where tonight the
BNP scored a tremendous result in the council by-election
held in the Mill Hill ward.
The results of the count are (after
a 3rd recount):
Robin Evans (BNP) 577 (32%)
(Labour) 562 (31%)
(Lib-Dems) 505 (28%)
(Conservative) 154 (9%)

This is a ward which has never been contested
by the BNP
The voters in this once prosperous Lancashire
former mill town have delivered a snub of epic proportions
to New Labour as this borough also happens to be the parliamentary
constituency of none other than New Labour heavyweight, Cabinet
Member and Foreign Secretary, Mr. Jack Straw.
Despite the usual dirty tactics from the
local rag, despite name-calling by the local Church of England
Bishop who really should know better, and despite strong words
of warning from Premier Blair and local MP Jack Straw the
common sense of the Blackburn voters enabled them to see through
these dirty tricks and our opponents' distortion of the fundamental
importance of the BNP message.
During the election campaign there were
dirty tricks by the "Lancashire Evening Telegraph"
which regardless of its local and homely title is owned by
an US based multi-national media conglomerate called Gannett
There was the extraordinary departure from
the World stage by Premier Blair to warn the few thousand
voters in Mill Hill that a vote for the British National Party
would be "a wasted vote".
There was the amazing comment from New
Labour "big gun" Jack Straw that people should get
out and vote for anyone "except the BNP".
Jack Straw's constituency has witnessed
the same political changes that have been seen in the past
6 months in Burnley, Oldham, Stoke, Lewisham and elsewhere.
On one side we have quite simply the "old gang"
parties of Labour, Tory and Lib-Dem with their discredited
policies of failure, discrimination and mistrust and on the
other side we have the one party that is prepared to challenge
the failed policies of the old gang parties and that is the
British National Party which aims to bring about a better
society for all.
Local interest in the electoral process
was clearly stimulated by the presence of Mr. Evans. The turnout
of 39% was high for this kind of election and the message
that comes from Mill Hill is that the BNP is good for voter
participation and democracy.
Newly elected BNP Councillor Robin Evans
and his team worked hard across the ward assuring people of
all cultural backgrounds that the BNP quite simply wants to
put British interests at the top of the agenda but that all
members of the community will benefit from a BNP councillor
being elected. This is borne out by a significant fall in
race-hate crimes in Burnley where the BNP have three elected
councillors from the council elections in May this year.
So Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council
can now take centre stage in the global media that a victory
for common sense has prevailed and that despite the very worst
of anti-British propaganda, the inherent core values of decency,
respect, civic pride, love of one's family and neighbours
has won the day.
Labour's strategy is clearly flawed. It
cannot continue to prostitute itself for the Muslim vote in
places such as Blackburn when the Labour Prime Minister is
sure to order the bombing of Iraq in the next few weeks, exacerbating
the plight of Iraqi children and bring about the collapse
of one of the more moderate regimes in the Middle East.
The BNP result in Lancashire also
has to be put into the context wherein those dedicated men
and women who are campaigning on behalf of the BNP just a
few hundred miles to the north of Blackburn face censure because
of a political trial which saw a jail sentence of 4 months
imposed on a BNP activist, tantamount to jailing political
dissidents but this was the extraordinary verdict of Ms Linda
Ruxton who acting as Sheriff
jailed a Glasgow based BNP activist
for distributing material likely to cause racial hatred.
It has to be admitted that the emotion
of tonight's victory is one of triumphalism. A small hard
working team of activists working with the very people who
are in the frontline of Blair's evil policy of mass immigration
and political censure are now convinced that the success tonight
in Lancashire will be replicated in many locations throughout
the British Isles in the next few months.
A few votes for the party of common
sense but a victory which will have reverberations throughout
the entire country!
