2012 John Tyndall Memorial Meeting

The 7th Annual John Tyndall Memorial Meeting

This year’s annual John Tyndall Memorial Meeting will be held on Saturday October 13th. Although we have a new city venue, it will again be held in the old English city of Preston, Lancashire.  The meeting will start at 1pm sharp – but doors will open at 12 noon.
Speakers so far include:

Richard Edmonds, National Front activist, parliamentary and council candidate in Lewisham during the 1970s; founder member and National Organiser, BNP, 1986-99; Proprietor of the BNP Bookshop in Welling, 1989-99.  One of the closest associates of the late John Tyndall across three decades and in three successive parties: the National Front, the NNF and the BNP.


Peter Rushton, Heritage and Destiny UK deputy editor.  Founder and editor of JailingOpinions.com   Frequent television commentator on Russia Today and Press TV.  For the past decade has been among the most prominent activists developing an alternative to the political and financial corruption of Griffinism, initially as a key ally of the late John Tyndall and latterly as election agent for the England First Party when two councillors were elected toi Blackburn with Darwen Council, political base of then Foreign Secretary Jack Straw.


Peter Barker, founder of the North West Nationalists website; ex-BNP North West region press officer; served in Ulster and Germany with Royal Engineers; former NF and BNP organiser for Rochdale.  As a branch organiser in Rochdale for the NF and later the BNP, Pete Barker was in the frontline of North West nationalism as right-hand man to regional organisers Ken Henderson and Chris Jackson.


Dr. James Lewthwaite, co-founder of Democratic Nationalists, 2008-.     Bradford City Councillor, 2004-7, and later a candidate for Royds ward on Bradford City Council.   Parliamentary candidate for Bradford South, 2005 and 2010.  Former archaeology lecturer and key activist in moves towards nationalist unity during 2011-2012, speaking at several meetings alongside Andrew Brons MEP.
