Final candidate totals for 2019 local elections

With today’s release of nominations for local authority elections in Northern Ireland, H&D can now publish our calculation of the final candidate totals for the UK’s various eurosceptic / nationalist political parties.

Not all of these parties are in any way racial nationalist, and not all racial nationalists are in any way eurosceptic, but we publish this list for our readers’ interest in showing the state of British electoral politics everywhere to the right of the Conservative Party.

Perhaps even “right” is not the correct word, but it is from somewhere within this spectrum that a new force will have to be drawn to rescue the United Kingdom from its multiracial / multicultural chaos of recent decades.

UKIP has eighteen candidates in various parts of Ulster, given them a total of 1,400 candidates across the UK for the scheduled local council elections, plus three mayoral candidates and about twenty in local by-elections that are also being held on May 2nd.

In other words UKIP will be contesting 16% of the available seats this year

Anne Marie Waters’ For Britain Movement has no candidates in Ulster, so their total remains 42.

Democrats & Veterans have three Ulster candidates, giving them 20 nationwide, plus a by-election candidate in the London Borough of Lewisham.

The new party Aontú, on which H&D recently reported, is a socially conservative and eurosceptic split from both Sinn Féin and the SDLP (north of the border) and Fianna Fáil south of the border. Aontú has sixteen candidates in various parts of Northern Ireland: an impressive total for a very new party.

Jolene Bunting, originally elected as a councillor for Traditional Unionist Voice, later became associated with the anti-Islamist group Britain First, which has failed to register as a political party but is supporting two independent candidates for English councils. Ms Bunting is standing as an Independent in the Court area of Belfast. It is not clear to H&D precisely what her present relationship is with Britain First following some internal rows last year.

TUV themselves have 32 local authority candidates this year.

So the updated candidate totals are as follows:

  • UKIP 1,400
  • For Britain 42
  • Traditional Unionist Voice 32
  • Democrats & Veterans 20
  • Aontú 16
  • English Democrats 10
  • Veterans & People’s Party 7
  • Our Nation 5
  • National Front 3
  • Populist 3
  • Britain First (standing as Independents) 3
  • British Democrats 2
  • BNP 2
  • British Resistance 1
  • Patria 1
  • Independents 3

For further details check our earlier articles on election nominations here and here.

H&D will continue to report on the local election campaign, and will include a comprehensive report on the results in our next issue, which as a consequence will appear slightly later than normal in early May.

English Democrats leader begins court battle to save Brexit

ED leader Robin Tilbrook

Robin Tilbrook, Essex solicitor and leader of the English Democrats, has begun a court case intended to save Brexit by establishing that Prime Minister Theresa May did not have the legal authority to delay our departure from the European Union.

Mr Tilbrook claims that the original exit date of March 29th remained legally valid, and that therefore we have already left the EU.

His argument states:

“Her purported request for an extension of the date of departure and the Government’s purported agreement to such an extension is and was unlawful and is and was null and void.”

Robin Tilbroook is presently a candidate for Epping Forest District Council, in the Chipping Ongar ward. The English Democrats’ greatest electoral success came in 2009 when their candidate Peter Davies was elected Mayor of Doncaster.

The government’s initial reply to Mr Tilbrook’s case is expected next week, and the High Court is then expected to set a hearing date.

Political Vacuum at 2019 Elections

Despite the Great Brexit Betrayal at Westminster, this year’s local elections bear witness to a vacuum where nationalist (and even eurosceptic) politics used to exist.

Nominations closed this afternoon with polling day on May 2nd, and though many councils have yet to publish their lists of candidates, it seems from H&D‘s early analysis that UKIP and its various splinters have put up smaller slates than expected, though almost everywhere UKIP remains well ahead of its rivals For Britain and Democrats & Veterans.

An exception is Epping Forest, where an efficient For Britain branch directed by former BNP election guru Eddy Butler is fielding two candidates, both of them ex-BNP, compared to one for UKIP. Former BNP councillor Mrs Patricia Richardson in Waltham Abbey Honey Lane and former London mayoral candidate Julian Leppert in Waltham Abbey Paternoster have already carried out extensive leafletting and are among the very few nationalist candidates with any chance of winning this year. Elsewhere in the borough English Democrat leader Robin Tilbrook is contesting his home ward of Chipping Ongar.

Stoke-on-Trent, once a jewel in the BNP crown, now elects its full complement of councillors once every four years, so 2019 should have been an important opportunity for both UKIP and Anne Marie Waters’ For Britain Movement, who presently have their sole councillor here.

Some anti-fascist “experts” had predicted a big slate of For Britain candidates here: in fact there are only three, including incumbent councillor Richard Broughan. Similarly UKIP have just three Stoke candidates.

A more impressive showing for Ms Waters’ party is in Leeds, where they are contesting eight of the 33 vacancies – in three of these they will have no UKIP opponent. UKIP have 16 Leeds candidates, and in Bramley & Stanningley ward voters will have UKIP, For Britain and the English Democrats on their ballot paper!

Another failure is in Burnley, where UKIP is contesting only three of the 15 wards and For Britain none. While racial nationalist parties are conspicuous by their absence from most ballot papers, there is one National Front candidate in Burnley – former BNP organiser Steven Smith, who we are pleased to note will have no UKIP opposition in the Brunshaw ward.

Other NF candidates so far declared include the party’s deputy chairman Jordan Pont in East Ecclesfield ward, Sheffield (where he unfortunately has UKIP opposition); and Chris Jackson in his home ward of Todmorden, Calderdale. Like Steven Smith, Chris has no UKIP opposition. Across Sheffield, UKIP are contesting 22 of the 28 vacancies, while D&V have three candidates, only one of whom has UKIP opposition. In Calderdale there are no UKIP candidates at all, and just one For Britain candidate.

Dr Jim Lewthwaite of the British Democrats

Former councillor Dr Jim Lewthwaite is again contesting Wyke ward, Bradford, for the British Democrats. He has no UKIP or D&V opponent and can expect a creditable result. The British Democrats are also contesting Loughborough Shelthorpe ward in Charnwood, Leicestershire.

Elsewhere in Bradford there are nine UKIP candidates, one from D&V, and none from For Britain, even though the latter’s head office is in the city!

For Britain (like the National Front before them) focused much campaigning energy in Rochdale following various Asian/Muslim scandals, but this has produced nothing electorally: UKIP will contest 16 of the 20 Rochdale wards, For Britain none. Even more startling is the total absence of nationalist/eurosceptic parties in Blackpool, an area that voted 75% for Brexit and where (as in Rochdale) there has been extensive campaigning by a range of anti-Islamist groups. For Britain supporters have talked for some time about targeting Blackpool, but they have not fielded a single candidate, and this year there will be no-one from Blackpool UKIP on the ballot paper either.

A similarly rare example of UKIP progress (at least in terms of candidates) is Oldham, where there is a serious slate of 14 UKIP candidates – though not the full slate of 20 that gullible “anti-fascists” had predicted. In nearby Tameside, UKIP have five candidates, Democrats & Veterans one, and For Britain none; while in Stockport there are six UKIP candidates and none from D&V or FB.

Yet another hopelessly inaccurate prediction by lavishly funded “anti-fascist experts” was in Hartlepool, where UKIP was said to have collapsed in favour of For Britain. In fact For Britain has just one candidate in Hartlepool, compared to three for UKIP, one for Democrats & Veterans, and a profusion of independents.

Thanks to boundary changes the most racially divided borough in England – Blackburn with Darwen – has an all-out election, so as in Stoke this should have been a bonanza year for any party seeking to recover some of the votes once cast for the BNP and the England First Party. Yet UKIP have just four candidates, and For Britain none.

Across the Pennines, UKIP is contesting only five of 21 vacancies in Wakefield; and eight out of 23 in Kirklees.

The English Democrats have staged a mini-revival in Barnsley, perhaps helped by the bold action of their leader Robin Tilbrook in launching a legal action to rescue Brexit. There are six EDs here (for 21 vacancies), compared to just three for UKIP and three from the UKIP splinter group Democrats & Veterans. D&V also have two candidates in Kirklees. Another English Democrat candidate is former NF and BNP activist Mick Sharpe, contesting Ripley & Marehay ward, Amber Valley.

In Sunderland UKIP have managed a full slate of 26 candidates, while For Britain and D&V each have just one. Elsewhere in the North-East the eurosceptic cause is less vigorous: Gateshead has seven UKIP candidates for 22 vacancies. Darlington is one of the very few councils anywhere in England where UKIP (with two candidates) has been overtaken by For Britain (with three). In Cheshire East the former UKIP councillor Brian Silvester (who has been re-elected unopposed as a parish councillor) is the sole For Britain candidate, and there is no-one from UKIP.

Another former nationalist heartland where none of the existing parties is reaping electoral potential is the West Midlands borough of Sandwell. UKIP and For Britain each have just four candidates here for 24 vacancies: the only good news is that only one ward has the parties fighting each other. Next door in Dudley there are fourteen UKIP candidates and none from For Britain.

Among the many former UKIP strongholds where the party has collapsed is Thurrock, where almost the entire former UKIP branch has regrouped as ‘Thurrock Independents’. They will have a full slate of seventeen candidates, while UKIP have only two. Similarly there are only three UKIP candidates this year in Thanet, where they once controlled the council and Nigel Farage once hoped to become an MP. The bulk of Thanet’s UKIP activists now call themselves ‘Thanet Independents’. Like their Thurrock counterparts, they will probably end up in Farage’s new Brexit Party, but this is gearing up to fight European (and perhaps General) elections, not local councils. For Britain has one Thanet candidate – ex-BNP parliamentary candidate Michael Barnbrook.

Veteran nationalist Joe Owens is contesting the Kensington & Fairfield ward of his native Liverpool, without a party description, but can be expected to run a professional campaign. Other nationalist independents include Paul Rudge, a Britain First activist standing in Rowley ward, Sandwell, with the party’s backing but without its name on the ballot paper; and former BNP activist Pete Molloy, standing in the Spennymoor ward of Durham.

During the next two days as councils continue to publish their lists of candidates, H&D will carry out a complete analysis of the nationalist/eurosceptic electoral picture, and of course our next edition will report on the election results and our movement’s prospects for recovery.

So far this year’s local election picture can be summarised as follows: UKIP has collapsed in many former strongholds, rather as the BNP did before its eventual death, while retaining pockets of strength. While his embrace of radical anti-Islamism has contributed to UKIP’s implosion, party leader Gerard Batten has the consolation that this same strategy has probably helped to stifle the For Britain Movement, whose founder Anne Marie Waters had hoped that anti-Islamism would be her party’s unique selling point.

Though failing to make a breakthrough in terms of defections from UKIP and overall candidate numbers, For Britain can reasonably hope to elect one or two councillors – perhaps in Stoke, perhaps in Epping Forest, perhaps in Thanet.

Overall however – while in past years we would have been looking at dozens of racial nationalist councillors, and hundreds of UKIP councillors – this year’s elections are likely merely to confirm the continuing crisis of both nationalism and euroscepticism, despite an obvious public appetite for alternatives to the Westminster charade.


Europe’s leaders shamelessly exploit the memory of the fallen: 1918-2018

One hundred years ago today the guns fell silent across Europe. Yet despite all the promises such as “homes fit for heroes”, November 11th 1918 was not the start of a European renaissance.

Instead the past century has seen a steady crumbling of European civilization. Community solidarity has withered; violent crime has overtaken our capitals; and the very people walking our streets would have seemed unimaginably alien to the Britons of 1918.

One thing they would have recognised: lying and self-interested politicians who have abused this weekend’s centenary events to advance their own agendas.

Yet the very fact that the likes of French President Emmanuel Macron have been impelled to advance their own anti-nationalist, one world programmes – exploiting the memory of countless dead Europeans who would not have signed up to one word of that agenda – shows that these elites are no longer feeling secure.

All those shameless liars who carried wreaths of poppies this weekend know that they are steadily being exposed. In Italy, Germany, Hungary, Sweden, France and many other nations the tide is turning.

In 2018 we know that the victims of Europe’s two disastrous 20th century civil wars did not die for freedom: for what ‘freedom’ is there today in a Europe that is (temporarily) under the thumb of politically correct laws, and where today’s surviving ex-servicemen are treated with contempt – in some cases even threatened with prosecution for their brave anti-terrorist campaigns of the 1970s.

Yet even in a world where ex-servicemen are driven to suicide by the societies they fought for, we can still be moved by the spirit of Laurence Binyon’s poem written more than a century ago.

With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children, 
England mourns for her dead across the sea. 
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit, 
Fallen in the cause of the free.
Solemn the drums thrill; Death august and royal 
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres, 
There is music in the midst of desolation 
And a glory that shines upon our tears.
They went with songs to the battle, they were young, 
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. 
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted; 
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: 
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn. 
At the going down of the sun and in the morning 
We will remember them.
They mingle not with their laughing comrades again; 
They sit no more at familiar tables of home; 
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time; 
They sleep beyond England’s foam.
But where our desires are and our hopes profound, 
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight, 
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known 
As the stars are known to the Night;
As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust, 
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain; 
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness, 
To the end, to the end, they remain.
Laurence Binyon, For the Fallen (1914)

Nationalist candidates at 2016 council elections – full list

ballot box

The first big surprise in the 2016 English council elections is that the BNP has fewer council candidates (outside London) this year than the National Front. With almost all councils now having issued their official lists of candidates standing in the May 5th elections, H&D can publish what is almost certainly a complete list covering the various nationalist parties.

The NF has eight council candidates (plus Richard Edmonds for the GLA); the BNP has seven (plus a London-wide list of GLA candidates). Like the BNP, the anti-Muslim party Britain First is contesting the London mayoral election and has a GLA list, but Britain First has no candidates outside London.

As we predicted in the March-April issue of H&D, a new nationalist party registered just in time for these elections: British Resistance, whose five council candidates include several former BNP activists (see below).

The British Democratic Party has just one candidate this year, partly because its strongest region in Leicestershire has no council elections in 2016.

We include the civic nationalist English Democrats here, even though most of the prominent BNP activists who defected to the EDs five years ago now seem to have given up, so the majority of this year’s ED candidates are people who were never members of the BNP, NF or any other radical nationalist party.

Kevin Hilliard – who stood against Adam Walker last year in an election for BNP chairman – is standing as an independent candidate for Chaddesden ward, Derby, which he previously contested for the BNP. Another Independent – former BNP councillor Lynda Cromie – is seeking a comeback in Queensbury ward, Bradford, where her husband Paul is still a councillor.  Mr and Mrs Cromie left the BNP some years ago and no longer have any connection with the nationalist movement.

A council by-election in the east London borough of Havering is also being held on May 5th and is being fought both by the NF’s Kevin Layzell and the BNP’s Denise Underwood. Aside from the GLA battle between the BNP and Britain First, this is one of only two council wards where there will be rival nationalist campaigns this year. The other is Swinton South ward, Salford, where former BNP parliamentary candidate Eddy O’Sullivan is standing for the new British Resistance party against Craig Holmes of the English Democrats.

By contrast, several nationalist candidates are lucky enough to have no UKIP opponent this year, including what should be two BNP targets – Gannow ward, Burnley, and Marsden ward, Pendle.

Also likely to benefit from UKIP’s absence are the NF’s Kevin Bryan in Rossendale; the BNP’s Christopher Houston in Barnsley and Bill Kitchen in Tameside; and several ED candidates including their entire slate in Liverpool, Steve Morris in Bury, Colin Porter in Barnsley, and Kevin Rafferty in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

More news of the 2016 local election campaigns, as well as information about the simultaneous GLA, Scottish Parliament, Welsh and Northern Ireland Assembly and Police and Crime Commissioner elections will appear on this site later.

We will remember them

armisticedaypoppies

97 years ago today, on 11th November 1918, the great European holocaust ended after four years of slaughter.

Our country, our continent and our race remains scarred forever by that terrible European civil war – a scar that was to be reopened by another disastrous conflict just twenty-one years later.

Britain’s armed services have had to face further sacrifices still, though none has yet matched the scale of the cataclysm that we mark today.

Almost worse than the death and destruction has been the repeated betrayal – the latest example being the sickening decision yesterday to arrest a 66-year-old former Lance-Corporal from the Parachute Regiment.

Though we must never despair, we must always remember: the sacrifice, the lies, the betrayal.  Soon true justice will be meted out: the British, European and White peoples of the world will reclaim their birthright.

We remember the words of Cicero – the greatest orator of another mighty empire two millennia ago – who wrote that “to be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child.  For what is the worth of human life, unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history?”

And we remember the words that have been spoken at war memorials across our nation for almost a century:

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Down Orwell’s memory hole – ‘Ten Little Niggers’

tenlittleniggers

 

In George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984, the all-powerful Party enforces political correctness by rewriting the past.  Political deviations are rendered impossible by erasing true records of past events, eradicating cultural roots and traditions.

Today the world’s media acts as Orwell’s ‘Ministry of Truth’.

One small but telling example is the worldwide publicity today for a poll to determine the public’s favourite Agatha Christie novel.  The winner – as reported today by practically every English-language news site in the world – was And Then There Were None, which the BBC is now dramatising as a three-part series.

Not a single news site reported that this was not the book’s original title: it was first published in England in 1939 as Ten Little Niggers.  It was only American sensitivity that led to alternative titles for U.S. editions – first as Ten Little Indians, then once this was deemed offensive to ‘Native Americans’ changed again to And Then There Were None – but the book was not retitled in England until 1985.

Such is the progress of political correctness: in the space of just thirty years we have adopted the liberal tyanny that not only forbids such a title as Ten Little Niggers, but insists that today’s audience shouldn’t even know of its existence.

Local Elections 2015 – nationalist results

Cathy Duffy of the BNP lost the council seat in East Goscote ward, Charnwood, that she had held for the past eight years, as 2015’s local elections proved another disaster for nationalist parties.  The British National Party has effectively ceased to exist as an electoral force.

At least Mrs Duffy’s years of service were rewarded by a respectable vote: she polled 36.0% to finish runner-up (down 6.3% from the previous contest here in 2011).

Elsewhere the BNP’s collapse was best summed up by the shocking 1.6% vote for John Rowe, the sole BNP candidate in Burnley, who was fighting Rosegrove with Lowerhouse ward. This is a town where the BNP were once the official opposition on the local council and had won numerous seats beginning in 2002.

In occasional wards that had no UKIP candidate, the BNP votes were less embarrassing: for example Wayne Tomlinson in Barton ward, Salford, polled 5.9%.  But even in Worcester, pretty much the only area with a functioning BNP branch this year, the party’s vote in its main target ward Nunnery fell from 13% to 1%.

Former BNP activists repelled by years of cronyism and corruption have sought refuge in several different nationalist parties.  None achieved anything approaching success this year, all overshadowed by UKIP.  However one or two candidates who did not have UKIP opponents showed that well organised campaigns can achieve decent results.  Former BNP councillor Graham Partner secured 12.7% for the British Democratic Party in Hugglescote St Johns ward, NW Leicestershire.  His BDP colleagues in Thurmaston ward, Charnwood, put up a full slate of candidates in a three-member ward with no UKIP opposition and took 11.5%, while the party’s sole Lancastrian candidate Gary Topping managed 10.2% in Waterside ward, Pendle.  Predictably the best English Democrat results were in Barnsley, where former BNP organiser Ian Sutton polled 16.3% in Darton West, and two of his colleagues also managed votes above 10%, but elsewhere EDs struggled to establish an electoral appeal distinct from UKIP.

Two parties were newly registered with the Electoral Commission and had limited campaigns. The National Front managed two candidates, including former North West BNP organiser Chris Jackson, who polled 2.5% in Todmorden ward, Calderdale.  A faction of former Griffinites reorganised as British Voice had a single candidate in Bentilee & Ubberley ward, Stoke, where David Leese polled 2.8%.

St George’s Day – Celebrate the Spirit of St George!

sgeorge

The editor and deputy editor would like to wish all H&D readers a very happy St George’s Day.

While St George’s Day – April 23rd – is mainly forgotten, ignored or even ridiculed by the liberal / left establishment, who by the way have no qualms about promoting everybody else’s national day, culture and heritage – apart from ours – we nationalists remember and celebrate it.

As Sir Oswald Mosley said on St George’s Day 1937;
“In the lives of great nations comes the moment of decisions, comes the moment of destiny: and this nation again and again in the great hours of fate has swept aside the little men of talk and delay and has decided to follow men and movements who say we go forward to action! Let who dare follow us in this hour.”

england fans twoThere will be a St George’s Day parade in Blackpool on Saturday 25th April, which is being organised by the pan-nationalist group – MARCH FOR ENGLAND. The H&D editor, deputy editor and a number of our local supporters will be attending. If you wish to attend please meet at either of these two pubs: Yates – South Shore or the Sun Inn – Bolton Street, both are a short walk from Blackpool South Train Station. Stewards will be at these pubs from 11am, however please try and get there for 12 noon to 1pm. The march will start about 2pm to march to allow for people travelling from the South to get there.

Nationalist General Election candidates 2015

ballot boxNominations have just closed for this year’s UK general election, with nationalist parties at their lowest ebb for many decades. (see also local election candidates list)

Our ideas have never had greater traction, but the decline of our movement following the collapse of Nick Griffin’s BNP is becoming starkly obvious as details emerge of the low number of nationalist candidates nationwide.

The biggest shock so far is that there will be only eight BNP parliamentary candidates nationwide (down from 338 in 2010).  Moreover there will only be one BNP candidate even at council level in Burnley, where the party was once the official opposition and seemed likely to gain power.

The NF will have seven parliamentary candidates and the British Democratic Party one.  The English Democrats (a party which contains numerous defectors from the BNP but also many with no connection to racial nationalism) has many more – 32, including one just over the Welsh border in Monmouth!

The cities of LeedsManchester and Liverpool will have no nationalist parliamentary candidates – not even an ED.

This page will report on confirmed candidatures as details are released by returning officers across the country.

There are no BNP candidates this year in the party’s former stronghold of Bradford, though in Bradford East Dr Jim Lewthwaite of the British Democrats will be his party’s only parliamentary candidate at its first general election.  Dr Lewthwaite is a former BNP councillor, and may be helped by UKIP fielding an Asian candidate in this constituency.

Cathy Duffy – one of only two surviving BNP councillors – is BNP candidate for her local Leicestershire constituency of Charnwood, though the other remaining BNP councillor Brian Parker is not contesting his Lancashire constituency Pendle. There are no BNP candidates (whether parliamentary, local council or mayoral) in the Cumbrian borough of Copeland, where the party head office is based.

Meanwhile in one of the early surprises of this election, nationalist veteran Tess Culnane will contest Dagenham & Rainham for the BNP, having recently returned to the party following several years in the National Front.  (However there will be no nationalist candidate in next door Barking, which saw Nick Griffin’s high profile campaign last time.) New BNP chairman Adam Walker, who ousted Nick Griffin in a palace coup last year, is standing in Rotherham, where he has the misfortune to face an English Democrat candidate also named Walker.

The NF has only just had its registration confirmed by the Electoral Commission following many months of turmoil, and has done well to organise seven parliamentary campaigns across the UK at short notice, including Richard Edmonds in Carshalton & Wallington, and party leader Kevin Bryan in Rochdale.  Two NF candidates will stand in Scottish constituencies: Chris Willett in Aberdeen North and Neil McIvor in Linlithgow & East Falkirk.

Nationalist independents this year include ex-BNP and EFP activist Craig Pond, who will contest Stoke North – notably there is not a single BNP candidate anywhere in Stoke, which alongside Burnley was once a party stronghold.

One of the most effective BNP defectors to the English Democrats, Ian Sutton is ED candidate for Barnsley Central, while his ED colleague Kevin Riddiough will contest Barnsley East.  The strongest area for the EDs this year appears to be South Yorkshire, where they will contest all fifteen parliamentary seats.  Former BNP electoral strategist Eddy Butler will once again be ED candidate for Harlow, despite rumours that he was quitting, though his former colleague Chris Beverley appears to have decided to take a break from politics after several years of committed activism for the BNP and EDs.

Another former BNP candidate – Dr Andrew Emerson – is standing for his Patria party in Chichester. Patria will also field Dick Franklin in Bournemouth West.

No nationalist candidates will stand this year in Oldham – the town which kick-started the brief 21st century revival of the BNP with the 2001 riots – but after a very slow start the local UKIP branch has picked up enough strength to contest all of the local council as well as parliamentary seats here. (Oldham is one of the few towns so far to have announced full lists of local candidates: most of the country will not confirm these until tomorrow or later.)

Former UKIP candidate Paul Weston – who attempted to create a political wing of the English Defence League and has visited Canada to speak at a rally of the Jewish terrorist group JDL – is standing on an anti-Islamic ticket in Luton South for his new party Liberty GB.  His registered description on the ballot paper will be “No to terrorism, yes to Britain”.  He will no doubt be helped by UKIP selecting an Asian candidate here – and not at all hindered by the foolish Matthew Collins, an ex-NF member who now poses as some sort of ‘insider’ expert on British nationalism.  Collins seems to think that Weston has founded yet another new party: he hasn’t.  Weston’s ballot paper description is one of several registered by Liberty GB with the Electoral Commission. (George Whale is standing in Lewisham West and Penge under the same description, while Timothy Burton in Birmingham Ladywood is using the slogan ‘Vote for real people, not politicians!’)

Further news of nationalist general election candidates will appear here later, and there will be extensive news updates and analysis throughout the campaign.  Best of luck to all those brave and hardy campaigners who will fly the flag for nationalism in an exceptionally tough year!
