FIRST NATIONALIST UNITY MEETING 26TH JANUARY

A brief report on Saturday’s meeting of British nationalists in Leeds from one of the organisers.

The City of Leeds

What started out as a simple idea, less than two months ago, between two nationalist colleagues and a solitary Facebook group that is barely two weeks old, resulted in the coming together of SIXTY attendees at Saturday’s first ever Nationalist Unity meeting.

I emphasise the word sixty simply because the number of patriots who were in attendance exceeded my initial expectation and I would very much like to take the opportunity to thank all those who made the effort to get there, including of course all the fine speakers – some having had 2-3 hour journeys to get to the venue.

The overarching theme of the day’s proceedings, was the question of whether some of the separate parties and organisations within the wider nationalist community could somehow begin working more closely together. It’s true to say that the movement has been badly divided since the British National Party’s heyday of a decade or so ago, indeed it is fair to echo the comment made recently by Max Musson over at www.westernspring.co.uk by saying that the movement has very definitely become moribund of late.

So, Saturday’s event was an attempt to breathe new life into a political ideology that at one time, not so long ago, could boast of having almost one million people voting for it.

Here’s the thing. Although we are not yet all ‘singing from the same hymn sheet’ in terms of agreeing on a definite singular path for the way forward, there was no animosity on display, no heated arguments and no falling out amongst ourselves whatsoever. Every individual in attendance was willing to hear the other out in a spirit of friendship and comradeship and that has to bode well for future cooperation between all of us. Many good and practical ideas were put forward and we shall be working on those in the coming weeks and months.

Without some form of unity and understanding, and, a little bit of give and take from all sides, we shall surely remain a splintered diaspora, and the end result will simply be the loss of all that we hold dear in terms of race and nation. IT IS VITAL THAT WE BEGIN ONCE AGAIN TO START WORKING TOGETHER AS A TEAM.

There will be no watering down of our core values of racial nationalism or adherence to the sentiment contained within the Fourteen Words.

It was encouraging to see representation from a number of well-established nationalist organisations at the meeting. We had people there from all of the following; National Front, Western Spring, British Movement, Heritage and Destinyand the British Democrats.

Further clarification

At the meeting we stressed the point that the reason for setting up this Nationalist Unity project was not simply to create another electioneering party, indeed that may not happen, though it is one of the options on the table. It is possible that we may at some point in the future offer ourselves up as a membership block to another party already in existence. Alternatively, and at the very least we continue on as an organisation fighting for the rights of the native population of Great Britain, and by extension, for that of our brothers and sisters right across the western world.

WE ARE LOSING THE WAR AGAINST OUR PEOPLE BUT IT IS NOT YET LOST. LET YESTERDAY’S MEETING BE THE START OF OUR FIGHT BACK TO WINNING WAYS.

Robert Faurisson International Prize awarded to Ursula Haverbeck

On Friday 25th January 2019 in the historic city of Vichy, a lunch attended by sixty guests from around Europe commemorated the 90th birthday of the great scholar and brave champion of historical exactitude, Professor Robert Faurisson. That day would have been his 90th birthday.

Professor Faurisson died on 21st October last year, immediately after returning to Vichy from a conference in his birthplace of Shepperton, West London, hosted by H&D‘s assistant editor Peter Rushton, Lady Michèle Renouf, and Western Spring.

At the Vichy luncheon, Italian tenor and veteran of the Gaza flotilla Joe Fallisi (who organised the event), together with Professor Faurisson’s right-hand man Guillaume Nichols and Lady Renouf, awarded the inaugural Robert Faurisson International Prize to the great German lady Ursula Haverbeck, heroine of the campaign for truth and justice.

Joe Fallisi and Lady Michèle Renouf (who together with Guillaume Nichols were the adjudicators for the 1st Robert Faurisson International Prize) present the award to Ursula Haverbeck’s Berlin attorney Wolfram Nahrath.

Frau Haverbeck, though 90 years old, is presently incarcerated in the German city of Bielefeld, serving a prison sentence of more than three years for the ‘crime’ of politely questioning historical orthodoxy.

For this reason, she was unable to travel to Vichy to collect the award in person, but was represented by her Berlin attorney Wolfram Nahrath.

Speakers at the luncheon included Jerôme Bourbon, editor of the journal Rivarol. We shall later publish an edited video of the Vichy event: exiled French revisionist Vincent Reynouard has already published his video report (click here to view – in French).

January 27th – an important anniversary in a Looking-Glass World

Throughout the Western world, anyone who switches on a radio or television today will be reminded incessantly that January 27th is an important memorial day.

But perhaps we should view today’s memorials in the context of Lewis Carroll, the great author whose birthday falls on this day. Alongside his most famous novels, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, Lewis Carroll is famous for his contributions to the genre of ‘literary nonsense’ in such poems as Jabberwocky and The Hunting of the Snark.

In Through the Looking-Glass, Alice meets Humpty-Dumpty.

“When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master— that’s all.”

On January 27th, we can all reflect on who is master in today’s world, and who therefore dictates the content and meaning of ‘history’.

Some H&D readers will be familiar with procedures in European courtrooms that imitate the behaviour of the Queen of Hearts in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland:

“Let the jury consider their verdict,” the King said, for about the twentieth time that day.
“No, no!” said the Queen. “Sentence first–verdict afterward.”
“Stuff and nonsense!” said Alice loudly. “The idea of having the sentence first!”
“Hold your tongue!” said the Queen, turning purple.
“I won’t!” said Alice.
“Off with her head!” the Queen shouted at the top of her voice. Nobody moved.
“Who cares for you?” said Alice. (She had grown to her full size by this time.) “You’re nothing but a pack of cards!”

Through the 27th January Looking-Glass, Britons are required to pay a memorial tribute of unquestioning support for the State of Israel, and are required to forget that the Zionist project involved a brutal Jewish terrorist war against us.

Hence it is all the more important to remember Forgotten British Heroes who were for decades denied even the most basic memorial, as explained in the speech and film below at the FBHC event in 2017 remembering murdered Sergeants Clifford Martin and Mervyn Paice.

In the true spirit of source-critical historical enquiry, this film includes unique archive testimony which Lady Renouf secured by interviewing surviving British veterans of the Palestine campaign. (It was on January 27th 2001 that Lady Renouf had an advertisement published in the Times and Daily Telegraph which first prompted these veterans to reveal their previously unrecorded eye-witness testimony to her.)



Matthew Collins gets it wrong again

Matthew Collins is a middle-aged thug from South London who in his youth was briefly associated with the National Front. He has turned this connection into a lifelong career as an ‘anti-fascist expert’, courted by sections of the liberal media because he is probably the only person of working-class origins they have ever encountered, and they are prepared to overlook his former pastime of poisoning fish in a local primary school.

Unfortunately for his employers, Mr Collins – like the Dick Emery character above – has a sad habit of getting things wrong.

His recent article for an anti-fascist website, after an incomprehensible paragraph about the London Forum, makes a series of errors (as well as an inexplicable reference to ‘homophobia’, which might reflect Mr Collins’ sensitivity on this subject, following his close friendship with Ian Anderson thirty years or so ago).

No-one in our circles has accused Stead Steadman of being responsible for the sabotage of Prof. Faurisson’s Shepperton meeting on October 20th. We knew almost instantly who was responsible, partly thanks to security failures by Mr Collins’ employers.

On October 20th Mr Steadman was at the Traditional Britain Group conference (having made this arrangement long before our event was scheduled) – not as Mr Collins asserts in the Netherlands.

A young Matthew Collins (centre) on a National Front paper sale.

Weirdly Mr Collins posts a mocking caption on a photograph of Mr Steadman, describing him as “sad-faced” during the NF’s march to the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday.

Perhaps Mr Collins and his ilk view the centenary of the First World War – a true European Holocaust that left 20 million dead and 21 million wounded – as a cause for merriment. Decent Britons, including Mr Steadman and the NF marchers, are understandably saddened.

Peter Rushton was not a “McKenzie friend” for Alison Chabloz’s court case, he was a defence witness. Ms Chabloz did not have a “McKenzie friend”, she was professionally and ably represented by barrister Adrian Davies, as Mr Collins would know if he consulted prosecution witness Gideon Falter of the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, who was cross-examined by Mr Davies to considerable effect!

Perhaps guided by wiser heads, Mr Collins cunningly edits his quotation from our article exposing Alison Chabloz as a saboteur. He does this to avoid mentioning the name of ‘Sophie Johnson’, the Chabloz puppet whose role as informant was inadvertently exposed by Hope not Hate themselves. Giving away your sources is not good for ‘anti-fascist’ Shoah business.

Among the first trails of evidence exposing Hope not Hate’s informant were these Twitter posts on the afternoon of the Shepperton event.

The sabotage of Prof. Robert Faurisson’s Shepperton meeting: informants exposed

Blow, blow thou winter wind.
Thou art not so unkind
As man’s ingratitude
(Shakespeare, As You Like It, Act II, Sc. 7)

It was to be the final high-point of the year: the world-renowned expert, heroic and exact exponent of Historical Revisionism had decided in his ninetieth year to return to his place of birth in order to give his final speech: to sum up before a gathering of friends and supporters his lifetime’s endeavours in the intellectual adventure of the Twentieth Century (now running overdue). Professor Robert Faurisson, born to a Scottish mother and a French father in the outer London suburb of Shepperton, Middlesex in the year 1929, returned there on 20 October to address guests at a pleasant local hostelry; he spoke, as ever, clearly and with focus for an hour and twenty minutes, without notes and holding his audience spell-bound; fluent in both his mother’s language and his father’s, he moved effortlessly from one to the other to make certain points clearer. Our privilege to be there at this historic occasion; every man and woman carefully vetted: friends amongst friends.

And then came the sabotage: a left-wing hate-group had been informed of our meeting and found the venue: midway through, the group contacted the hotel’s management and threatened that a violent mob would come and wreck the meeting (plus harm staff and guests) unless the management pre-empted and closed the meeting down themselves. The management promptly obeyed the “order”, summoning the chairman to the desk and telling him to put an end to the conference at once. When he refused they resorted to “tough” tactics: repeatedly they set off the fire alarms, turned the lights off, brought a loud-speaker “ghetto-blaster” into the conference room and did their very worst by means of this cacophony to wreck the proceedings. Fortunately the Professor had completed what he had to say to us. He died of a heart attack immediately on returning to his French home a day later.

The question is: who sabotaged the meeting and why?

Was the meeting sabotaged from within “the movement”, defining “the movement” very broadly? And again what could the motive be for such a destructive act and deliberate betrayal of a hero, a man approaching the end of his life having returned to the place of his birth to be amongst friends and admirers to give his final talk to the world – the meeting was filmed.

There are names that are going to be recorded here; there have to be.

It is a fact that the singing satirist, Alison Chabloz, was not invited to the Shepperton meeting. Why not? Because Ms. Chabloz had taken it upon herself to condemn repeatedly the organiser of the Shepperton meeting, Peter Rushton, as “an enemy agent and liar.” This shameful abuse of a good man had no justification or foundation in fact; which fact has been repeatedly explained in detail to Ms. Chabloz. Hence she was excluded from the guest list for Professor Faurisson’s final meeting as an unwelcome entity.

Peter Rushton had served as Ms. Chabloz’s Defence witness at her trial at the Westminster Magistrates’ court, but had refused to go along with her campaign of abuse against Lady Michèle Renouf, a dedicated supporter of the right to free historical and scientific research, whom Ms. Chabloz has repeatedly maligned and defamed for the past year. The moment he dissociated himself from Ms. Chabloz’s endeavours to spread lies about Michèle Renouf, Mr Rushton himself became the target of the Chabloz lie machine. On her blog (10th May 2018) Ms. Chabloz had retorted (or threatened?) “it’s as if my detractors want me to sell my story to the enemy”.

Just a week before the Shepperton gathering, Ms. Chabloz sent a series of emails to Prof. Faurisson attempting to pressure him into intervening to allow her presence there. Ms. Chabloz’s tone was so insistent and outrageous that following her email of 16th October the Professor refused to reply any further to her messages. On arriving in Shepperton three days later he complained about being exhausted by Ms. Chabloz’s relentless behaviour. Despite knowing the reasons why she had been excluded from the Shepperton event, Ms Chabloz persisted during the few days leading up to October 20th in lobbying intensively among various naive nationalists, seeking information about an event to which she was not invited.

A second name must also be mentioned here: Sophie Johnson. Sophie Johnson is the name of the middle-aged Hungarian woman who at first regularly attended the hearings of Ms. Chabloz’s case at the Westminster Magistrates’ court. Sophie Johnson claims to be a close friend of Ms. Chabloz:  “I am squarely on the side of the unrivalled queen of English revisionism, the brilliant, richly talented, charming Alison Chabloz”. Some weeks before the Shepperton meeting, “Sophie Johnson” (described by Ms. Chabloz as a valued friend) left comments on the Danish activist NS Viking’s video platform, seriously demeaning Professor Robert Faurisson as senile – “an old fool” who had “authorised a vicious attack on Alison Chabloz”. This is another vile lie: the Professor never attacked Ms. Chabloz verbally or in writing; on the contrary he always had kind and encouraging words for her until eventually becoming exasperated – and even then he only complained about her conduct privately.  On the day of the Shepperton meeting, a ‘Sophie’ is registered on the twitter account of the left-wing hate-group, ‘Hope not Hate’ as contacting them with information relating to the Shepperton conference. Since (as she now admits) ‘Sophie’ does not have her own Twitter account, Hope not Hate had to use public Twitter posts in an effort to reach her and ask for further information.

Among the first trails of evidence exposing Hope not Hate’s informant were these Twitter posts on the afternoon of the Shepperton event.

Questions: Was it Sophie Johnson, or somebody in the name of Sophie Johnson who betrayed our Shepperton event? And why in all this time, has Ms. Chabloz never condemned this sabotage of Prof. Faurisson’s final appearance? And why has Ms. Chabloz never rebuked and corrected “Sophie Johnson” (if that be the correct name) for insulting the greatest Revisionist hero of our time, as “an old fool”? And why did Ms. Chabloz not dissociate herself at the time from a person having made such a disgusting comment?

Finally one has to say (after compiling a detailed timeline of these events, with the benefit of having read Alison Chabloz’s private emails to Prof. Faurisson and a great deal of other relevant correspondence): by the balance of probabilities it is the person calling herself “Sophie Johnson” who sabotaged our meeting and betrayed it to the enemy; and did so to please the individual, whom Sophie Johnson describes as the “unrivalled queen of English revisionism, the brilliant, richly talented, charming Alison Chabloz”. By the balance of probabilities, one is forced to the conclusion that Alison Chabloz, motivated by spite, arranged for the meeting from which she was excluded to be sabotaged.

By this disgraceful act, Ms. Chabloz damns herself as a traitor and saboteur. We are aware of the fact that several good nationalists have passed information to Ms. Chabloz which she has later misused – indeed we know precisely who informed her and when about the Shepperton event, enabling her sabotage – but we have no doubt that these folk were simply acting naively and in good faith. However from this point on, those who collaborate with Ms. Chabloz will be regarded as giving aid to an enemy informant.

The above statement is issued by Richard Edmonds, Michèle Renouf, and Peter Rushton, with the approval of Guillaume Nichols, Joe Fallisi and Fred Leuchter

Note: Mr Nichols was Prof. Faurisson’s right-hand man and translator for many years. Mr Fallisi (a veteran of the Gaza flotilla arrested by Israeli forces in 2010) sang for Prof. Faurisson’s 88th birthday celebration in 2017. Both Mr Nichols and Mr Fallisi were guests at Prof. Faurisson’s final event in Shepperton. Mr Leuchter is of course the execution technology expert whose revisionist report on Auschwitz led to decades of continuing persecution by the authorities, including his arrest and deportation from London in 1991.

We have no intention of getting drawn into a ‘debate’ with the traitor and saboteur Alison Chabloz, save only to note that in her own response to the above revelations she damns herself further by dismissing Prof. Faurisson as Michèle Renouf’s “principle [sic] PR agent”.

Having washed our hands of Ms. Chabloz, the January edition of H&D will turn to more serious matters. The campaign for historical truth proceeds, as we lesser men are raised up on the giant shoulders of Faurissonian exactitude. The intellectual adventure continues.

John Tyndall Memorial Meeting 2018

This year’s John Tyndall Memorial Meeting was held in Bradford, West Yorkshire, organised by White Voice. Despite transport chaos caused by a rail strike that affected much of Northern England, 45 nationalists from a wide range of groups attended and the meeting was live streamed worldwide by Radio Aryan.
Chaired by former NF and BNP West Midlands organiser Keith Axon (who first joined the National Front in 1975 and was a longstanding friend of John Tyndall and his family), the event’s speakers were:
Julie Lake, former BNP, South West Forum and NF South West organiser.
Mike Whitby, Common Law Advocate and Chairman of British Voice.
Dr Jim Lewthwaite, former archaeology lecturer and Bradford City Councillor, now chairman of the British Democrats.
Steve Frost, National Secretary of British Movement.
Eddy Morrison, Editor of White Voice
Peter Rushton, Assistant Editor of Heritage and Destiny.
From their various perspectives, this year’s speakers set John Tyndall’s legacy against the context of today’s nationalist predicament. While from one standpoint racial nationalist organisations are at a very low ebb (perhaps at their lowest point since the Second World War, in terms of active membership and electoral performance), looked at from another angle it’s the political establishment that’s in serious trouble.
Non-white immigration and its consequences were the main political issues of John Tyndall’s career, and his life spanned the racial transformation of our country. Britain was almost entirely White when JT was born. He was just 5 years old when Europe began its suicidal civil war and 11 when it ended with a costly supposed ‘victory’ for Britain and her Allies. When John Tyndall was 14, the disastrous multiracial experiment began with the arrival of former troopship Empire Windrush carrying a cargo of West Indians.
For decades opinion polls continued to show the majority of Britons wanted an end to non-white immigration, yet the tide continued unabated.
Little surprise that when given the chance to retaliate against their establishment masters, British voters rebelled, with the Brexit referendum acting as proxy for a range of discontents (including immigration).

One side of John Tyndall’s legacy is his unshakeable ideological consistency: he would have little time for today’s “alt-lite” or for the likes of ‘Tommy Robinson’, who avoid central questions, worship Israel and obsess endlessly about Islam.
But another side of John Tyndall is too easily forgotten – his faith in the British people and the electoral process. JT had no time for defeatism or cranky, mindless extremism. He would have recognised the lesson of the Brexit referendum, that our fellow countrymen are prepared to stand up for themselves and cannot be endlessly manipulated.
Political consistency and determination has consequences, and John Tyndall himself had to pay a heavy price, frequently dragged before the courts and twice imprisoned. The latest example of our enemies’ tendency to avoid debate and resort to demonisation and criminalisation is the great war of distraction being waged over Brexit, now targetting Arron Banks and alleged Russian influence.
This weekend’s speakers agreed that there is little point in seeking to create a unified nationalist mass movement now. Such a movement will emerge organically from the post-Brexit crisis, as UKIP and its successor movements lose their raison d’etre, the Tory and Labour parties split, and whichever government holds office in 2019 presides over a continuing migration crisis even after we leave the European Union.

Lady Renouf to speak at SW Forum: BBC broadcast ‘Why Can’t We Question The Holocaust?’

Jez Turner of London Forum, recently jailed under the notorious race laws

South West Forum organiser Julie Lake has announced her next event for Saturday 4th August. Speakers will include Lady Michèle Renouf and Paul Ballard.

This will be a special fundraising event for Jez Turner, the London Forum organiser recently jailed under Britain’s notorious race laws.

Mrs Lake writes:

PLEASE TEXT ME ON 07432 843745 IF YOU CAN DONATE AN ITEM FOR THE AUCTION

THE SAME IF YOU CAN DONATE AN ITEM FOR THE RAFFLE.

PLEASE ALSO CONTACT ME, IF YOU WOULD LIKE A BOOK STALL AT THE MEETING.

I AM SURE YOU WILL ALL AGREE WITH ME, THAT JEZ HAS GIVEN SO MUCH TO OUR MOVEMENT, THAT THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO DO SOMETHING FOR HIM. ALL PROCEEDS AFTER RUNNING COSTS, WILL GO TO JEZ ON HIS RELEASE FROM PRISON, TO HELP HIM WITH ACCOMMODATION, AND PERSONAL EXPENSES.

IT IS A FITTING TRIBUTE TO JEZ THAT MICHELE AND PAUL WILL BE THERE TO SPEAK, AS TWO OF THE COUNTRIES MOST NOTABLE NATIONALISTS. A FURTHER TWO SPEAKERS AWAITING CONFIRMATION.

A FURTHER NOTICE WILL FOLLOW, NEARER THE TIME.

As a preview of this event, readers can now access an online version of two BBC broadcasts featuring Lady Renouf:

The BBC World Service in February 2009 broadcast an extraordinary progamme entitled “Why Can’t We Question About The Holocaust”. This Question was debated on worldwide radio during an hour-long show in which the two contenders, the British champion of normal historical revisionist source criticism without exception Lady Michèle Renouf, versus the Jewish American “Holocaust” extermination theorist Professor Deborah Lipstadt, were invited to answer phone-in queries from the BBC’s global audience. The prompt for this one-off free speech opportunity on this exceptionalist topic arose as follows.

On 25th February 2009 the traditional Roman Catholic Bishop Richard Williamson made worldwide headlines when he arrived at Heathrow Airport following his expulsion from Argentina, where he had taught at a seminary for five years. These extraordinary events were due to Bishop Williamson expressing his opinion on recent ‘revisionist’ scholarship regarding the alleged homicidal gassing of six million European Jews, supposedly on the orders of Adolf Hitler – a version of history which has been effectively trademarked and sacralised as ‘the Holocaust’.

Expressing doubts about the new universal religion of Holocaustianity, or even calling for its emotional claims to be forensically substantiated by critical examination of historical sources and scientific analysis of evidence, has become a crime in many European countries (though not yet in the UK). Bishop Williamson had been ambushed by a Swedish television crew in Germany, one of the countries where expression of ‘revisionist’ opinions is illegal.

In the hours after Bishop Williamson’s arrival in London, Lady Michèle Renouf – who had mobilised a legal team the previous year to defend Australian revisionist Dr Fredrick Töben and defeat the German government’s attempt to prompt English law, via the ‘ back door’, to “harmonise” with Germany’s “Holocaust-denial laws” by extraditing him from the UK on a European Arrest Warrant – was interviewed on two of the BBC’s flagship radio programmes.

First, on the main lunchtime news bulletin The World at One, Lady Renouf debated the issues raised by the Williamson case with Lord Janner (the former Labour MP Greville Janner), vice-president of the World Jewish Congress and co-founder of the Holocaust Educational Trust. Lord Janner was then among the most eminent leaders of the Anglo-Jewish community, though he was disgraced by allegations of paedophile abuse in the the years before his death in 2015.

In the evening of the same day, historical ‘revisionist’ supporter Lady Renouf was one of the two main guests in an hour-long debate – “Why Can’t We Question About The Holocaust?” – and phone-in on the BBC World Service, alongside American academic Deborah Lipstadt, whose allegations against British historian David Irving were the basis of a famous libel case in 2000. Irving’s case, in turn, had relied upon the ground-breaking trials in Toronto Canada in the late 1980s when revisionist scientific findings and “Holocaust” eye-witnesses exposed in cross-examination that the many testimonies and claims deployed “poetic licence”. Ever since, open objective forensic scrutiny of the scientific issues remains off-limits and emotionally barred from normal historical source critical debate. Even the “International Guidelines for Teaching About The Holocaust” insist on Page 11 that: “Care should be taken not to disprove the deniers’ position through normal historical debate and rational arguement”. Exceptionalist laws seek to progress the prosecution of all reasonable investigation as the “criminal” act of heretics.

 

British Australian Community Britfest 2018

I had the pleasure of attending BRITFEST 2018 which was held in one of the inner suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria. The spacious hall was a pleasant venue for such an occasion and an audience of about 250 enjoyed the British-centric entertainment on offer. Organised by the capable office bearers of the British Australian Community, the BRITFEST has been running for about 30 years and showcases some of the great British traditional entertainment that many might have forgotten.

The history and culture of Australia from 1788 until recent times is simply an extension of the history and culture of the British Isles. English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh (plus a few related Northern Europeans) came to Australia and created the culture that we now recognise as traditionally Australian. The purpose of the non-political, non-sectarian BAC is to

  • Represent the interests of British people and their descendants in Australia
  • Promote British culture and its uniquely Australian expression and evolution
  • Make representations to Federal, State and local governments and statutory bodies and the media in support of our community
  • Combat prejudice and misunderstanding regarding British people and their descendants
  • Provide social activities for our community that celebrate our heritage and identity.

Anyway, to BRITFEST 2018:

I arrived around 10am on a beautiful autumn day and was pleased to see all manner of British flags in evidence, covering walls, windows and hanging from any available vantage point. The room was filling nicely and after a brief welcome to BRITFEST 2018 by the BAC President, we headed straight into a display of Morris Dancing by a local team of Morris Dancers, resplendent with their multi-coloured coats, shin bells, handkerchiefs and sticks. Sometimes subtle, sometimes rather brutal with the wafting and hitting of sticks, each demonstration of this traditional dance managed to finish without injury to the participants or audience.

Next was a performance of an all-girl singing group who regaled us with some beautiful traditional and more modern songs performed in the Welsh language.

Despite the efforts of the Plantagenet kings, Scottish dancing has survived through the centuries and we had a Melbourne-based Scottish Dance Group, accompanied by a piper, sweeping the dance floor with a flurry of tartan.

Scottish Dancing at Britfest 2018

What would any festival of Britishness be without some readings from Robert Burns? We all enjoyed the background information and readings from the great Scottish poet followed by a military re-enactment group who showed us some drill whilst dressed in early 20th Century uniforms and carrying interesting looking long rifles with bayonets. Because this year’s BRITFEST was held indoors, the soldiers couldn’t fire their weapons, but a few hearty shouts of “BANG” at the appropriate times by the men in uniform (with the occasional audible ‘click’ shout, depicting a misfire) certainly gave us the idea of what was happening.

During the day, these artistes performed varied items in a revolving cavalcade of British entertainment. A Punch and Judy show was also available for the littlies who had tired of skipping unhindered around the dancefloor in 19th Century style clothes).

Of course, watching these people showcase their talents and applauding them with gusto, one tends to build up a thirst and a healthy appetite. The BAC had that covered, with a wide range of British beers available in cans and bottles; unfortunately no draught, but that is understandable. There were also scones with jam and cream, black pudding, haggis, Cumberland sausage and other delicacies available and, this being Australia, all was cooked on a sizzling BBQ (apart from the scones, of course).

As the afternoon meandered on and I became rather partial to a Speckled Hen or two (ahem), I made my way outside to meet some of the audience who were also in need of sustenance. It was a welcome sight to see Australian men and women in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s rejoicing in their antecedents’ heritage and discussing their background with pride in broad Australian accents.

The whole show wound up about 4pm and all who attended seemed very happy at the standard of the entertainment and refreshments. I might have flown 1,000km to visit this event, but it was certainly worthwhile and as long as the young men and women can resist the multicultural garbage being pushed by our current and past range of politicians, I believe that the BAC and BRITFEST will have a healthy future. Why not look at attending BRITFEST 2019? It might be a long way away from Britain, but the trip will be worthwhile, if only to see that, in this outpost on the other side of the world, some truly British traditions remain.

Wassail!
