Nationalism in New Zealand 2020

After the Christchurch Mosque attacks of 15 March 2019, the political Right in New Zealand disappeared within hours. Any websites were either taken offline by the operators or shut down by their hosting services. The NZ National Front which had been in slow decline finally breathed its last as its web site was arbitrarily deleted by the hosting service. Since then the Liberals, the hard Left and committed Marxists have been completely unopposed politically.

For many years the political landscape in NZ had been wall to wall liberals regardless which side of the political duopoly was in power. Now, with the complete demise of the Right in 2019, no one can so much as whisper a word against the Muslim community, and should anyone have the temerity to question large scale immigration, they will surely face arbitrary public crucifixion as a ‘Racist’!

To the extent that there can be a bright side after such a disastrous year, the forced purge cleared the way for a much-needed re-boot of Nationalism in New Zealand. Prior to the March 15 shooting, the most promising development had been the Dominion Movement, an identitarian movement specifically for young men of European descent, they were an effective group for building European group identity, with solid nationalist ideology combined with a positive public image. They engaged in team-building exercises and community projects like cleaning graffiti, hiking and fitness training, combined with self-promotion and pro-white messages, but these seemingly harmless acts of public good and team building attracted the ire of those in power. Unfortunately, young white men building self-respect was something the establishment would simply not tolerate, the danger that white people would be able to recognise and vote against policies and parties that were not in their interests could not be tolerated. Consequently, they were being pursued by the SIS (our version of the Stasi) even before the Christchurch debacle.

So the day that 50 Muslims got senselessly murdered in Christchurch was also the day that genuine political opposition died in New Zealand. The DM disappeared as did the already diminished National Front.

Out of the ruins of March 15 came a new more serious approach, ideologically driven with deep academic roots. Gone are the leather jackets and shaved heads of earlier National Front and Right-Wing Resistance groups, launched in July 2019 a new movement called Action Zealandia features penetrating analysis and real-world long term objectives. The AZ group follows in the footsteps of the Dominion Movement with the aim of fostering the development of fit young intelligent European men with an ideological foundation that will only see the movement grow with time. This development should not be underestimated, along with other developments mentioned here this is a major change in the meta-political landscape of New Zealand.

New Zealand White workers demonstrate against wage reductions in 1925

In May 2020 I launched the new online magazine site The European New Zealander (TENZ) to provide a counter-narrative to the all-pervasive anti-white narrative that currently permeates every aspect of New Zealand life, from the clear agenda to normalise race mixing in advertising to the outright demonisation of whites in the education system. The European New Zealander intends to operate on the cultural or ‘meta-political’ level, to highlight the contributions made by our English and European forebears, in contrast to the unhealthy fad of excessively promoting the limited contributions made by temporary immigrants from other parts of the world. Over the coming months, TENZ will strive to highlight the traditions that the early settlers brought with them that we still practice today, everything from cuisine, to clothing to games and local festivals and customs that reflect our roots in our English homeland. It is important that we understand that much of what we take for granted is unique and valuable to our people here and reflects a connection to our wider kin in our homelands and other parts of the European world.

For the purpose of indoctrination and to demolish resistance to the new religion of multiculturalism, race mixing and economic globalism, what has happened to European New Zealanders is a deliberate attempt to undermine our unity and identity, it has taken many decades and has worked at all levels of our culture. Attempts to put things right may also take many years. However, since starting the site two months ago we have seen the international situation deteriorate dramatically, whites and European culture is under attack like never before. I believe these events can only accelerate the process of European awakening. What this means for TENZ is the inclusion of more directly relevant political content as people seek answers to serious political questions. To that end, I have been fortunate to have the invaluable help of NZ’s leading conservative intellectual, Dr Kerry Bolton in providing scholarly analysis of current events.

Other than the clearly ethnocultural focus of AZ and TENZ there are few other outlets for right-wing or counter-narrative viewpoints in New Zealand. TheBFD.co.nz and RightMinds.nz go as far as they can whilst remaining safely within the limits of acceptable discourse, bounded by the tacit confession that racism is bad and we must always be at pains to prove our innocence. On the other hand, the driving motivation for TENZ is very simple; Genocide is wrong, period. To that extent, the Civic Nationalist position taken by these other outlets is tolerated by the establishment precisely because it does nothing to prevent the eventual breakdown of homogenous societies.

The South Island Independence Movement is another organisation that offers concerned normies and Civic Nationalists a proposition we can all agree on for now, that the South Island really is the Main Land and should have its own government. And it has until only very recently been something like 98% European. A ‘problem’ the government is moving rapidly to solve.

What is forgotten or at best demonised is the great fact that English people came to New Zealand and built a great country, carved from the forest and the plains, and produced a society with the highest standard of living in the world. Our people did that and to say otherwise is to defraud our children of a proud heritage, cultural identity and something worth fighting for. And that, I guess is the point, the globalist agenda cannot have a homogenous national group, educated in its history and willing to fight to defend it’s legitimate claim to identity and territory.

A mindless act of terrorism has been ruthlessly exploited by the political establishment

New Zealand is at a turning point. We have a general election in September, the political/cultural/media establishment does not allow for the expression of any degree of Ethno Nationalist sentiment, and across the board, all political parties buy into the leftist proscribed evil of ‘Racism’. The current crop of political parties even seem to compete with each other for boasting rights to the most pro-immigration credentials, many using the fallacious argument that ‘we are a nation of immigrants’ to justify large scale immigration from India. For the sake of context, we are talking about average net immigration of around 15,000 pa booming to 70,000 after National prime minister John Key opened the borders in 2013.

Statements on Immigration from some of the parties

· Act; ‘New Zealand is a nation of immigrants.’ ‘Continue to be a pro-immigration party, honouring our heritage as a nation of immigrants’

· New Conservatives; ‘Immigration is central to many parts of New Zealand’s culture, economy, and future prospects.

· Labour; ‘New Zealand is a country built on immigration.

· National; No comment

· TOP; ‘We need to focus on skilled people that are looking for a more liberal and tolerant society in the wake of Brexit, Trump and the march of ugly nationalism engulfing Europe.’

· Greens; No comment, just equality for all.

· NZF; only a population policy survey.

Most of these parties issue fluffy sounding economics-based immigration policies and then declare that they will not allow separate parallel societies to develop with their own culture and legal systems. Sounds like another fluffy sounding declaration of a century ago, ‘oh yes, we will allow millions of Jewish people to come in here and nothing will be done to prejudice the civil rights of the existing population, – and everything will be just fine.’ oops! And that was the start of the trouble in the middle east, in the same way that the same spurious lies about immigration have been the start of the trouble in the west.

From a rightist perspective, it has long been recognised that a natural symbiosis exists between ethno-nationalist objectives and Maori activist parties. Outside of the opportunistic treaty claims industry, both sides realise that we have a shared vested interest in preserving the cultural status quo. Yet the thought of Pakeha and Maori working together to save our country from socialism must have been a truly terrifying experience for the globalist establishment. Not to worry, they had just the right person to head off the imminent outbreak of cordiality. At the last National Front Flag Day in 2017, the liberals, in the person of the Green Party member of parliament Golriz Ghahraman, went out of their way to creat reasons for grievance and agitation. Whether she is a true believer or a useful idiot, the left created for the occasion a Land War memorial day to coincide with the annual NF Flag Day. Several hundred agitated Maori turn up, the Iranian refugee winds them up and hey presto, the common purpose shared by Maori and Pakeha in preserving our country from socialism is scuttled yet again.

So in summary, genuine Racial Nationalism in NZ is, surprisingly, in better shape now than it was before the collapse, young people, good optics, no skinheads, deep roots. Were OK. Which is good, because we are going to need to be in pretty good shape if Comrade Cindy gets another shot at the tiller, which is entirely possible considering the compliant and gullible obedience the general public have displayed of late throughout this Covid19 thing,- but that’s another story! We could be facing a ruined economy, rampant inflation, a surveillance state and draconian hate speech laws. If that happens it may not be long before we are dreaming wistfully of the good old days of 2020!

Generation Identity targeted in latest Twitter purge

The international ‘Alt Right’ group Generation Identity – which grew eight years ago out of the French Bloc Identitaire and its Scandinavian allies but now has branches in many White countries – has been targeted in the latest social media purge.

During the last 24 hours accounts belonging to several GI linked groups have been banned from Twitter, as has GI’s highest-profile leader Martin Sellner. NBC News claims that around fifty accounts have been removed following a hostile report by an ‘anti-racist’ group.

So far Mr Sellner’s American wife Brittany (née Pettibone) has escaped the purge, but is likely to be caught in a further wave of expulsions from Twitter during the next few days.

Defenders of European values – ranging from the ‘non-racist’ ‘Alt Lite’, through varying shades of civic nationalist, identitarian, Islam-obsessed, racially conscious and fully racial nationalist – have been removed from social media channels (notably YouTube, Twitter and most recently Facebook) at different stages during the past year.

(Generation Identity was analysed in H&D Issue 83 by Tony Paulsen.)

Free political prisoner Matt Hale

Dear Friends and Supporters, 

If you live in the United States of America, I hope that you were celebrating on the Fourth of July with friends and family today.   Please try to remember Matt Hale, as he was an indefatigable champion of White independence and self-determination before he was unjustly imprisoned.   We Whites are increasingly being harassed, discriminated against and assaulted in the United States of America and everywhere in the world where Whites have traitorous, anti-White governments over them.   

Matt Hale

As an update on Matt, I was just informed that the U.S. Federal Bureauof Prisons has moved Matt to the medium-security United States Penitentiary in Marion, Illinois.   Rather than move him to the prison that is a mere 15 miles away from his mother, he will be 258 miles away.  To be sure, this is an improvement over his being 996 miles away in Florence, Colorado, but he is still unnecessarily far from his family members.   Both the closer Pekin, Illinois facility and the one in which he is now imprisoned in Marion, Illinois are medium security prisons.   

Our understanding is that the Marion, Illinois facility has a bad reputation for inmates getting killed by other inmates.   Obviously, Matt is in increased danger over his being in solitary confinement in Florence because he may be in the general population areas of the prison.   Fortunately, the Marion facility does have a maximum security cell-house, should Matt need to be isolated from other prisoners that may be a danger to him.   

Most prisoners in medium-security federal prisons can send and receive emails.   I’ve been informed that Matt has opted to not receive any outside emails from friends or supporters at this time, as last time he was in a medium-security prison, he was put in isolation for 6 months because a supporter emailed him some prohibited speech unsolicited.  If you have received an email reporting your being taken off his email list, that is what is going on. 

Please get your birthday cards in the mail for Matt.  His birthday ison the 27th of July and he’d love to hear from you.  I’m not sure of the restrictions on his mail at his new location.  Use your best judgement.  In Florence, Colorado, “homemade” cards were forbidden and commercial cards were photo-copied, and the photocopies only delivered to him.  Going by the Federal Bureau of Prison’s site, here is his new mailing address.  Mail your cards to the new address to assure prompt delivery:

Please also note that Matt’s mother – Evelyn Hutcheson – now has a new address. Please send letters of support and donations for Matt there.

Rivarol editor convicted under French ‘hate speech’ laws

Jérôme Bourbon, editor of the long-established weekly journal Rivarol, has been given a nine-month suspended prison sentence by the Paris criminal court for the ‘crime’ of posting Twitter messages critical of international Zionism and raising questions about the state of free speech in 21st century France.

The three offending ‘tweets’ dated from 2018. M. Bourbon was banned from Twitter in 2019.

One of the offending ‘tweets’ commemorated First World War French hero Marshal Philippe Pétain, and had been posted by M. Bourbon to mark the centenary of the November 1918 armistice.

M. Bourbon was also required to pay ‘damages’ and court costs amounting to €6,000.

Rivarol is one of the longest established nationalist / traditionalist journals in the world, dating back almost seventy years to January 1951. Its 65th birthday banquet in 2016 was attended by Jean-Marie Le Pen and the late Prof. Robert Faurisson.

YouTube bans David Duke and Jared Taylor

Jared Taylor (second right) during a visit to the North of England with (left to right) H&D editor Mark Cotterill, assistant editor Peter Rushton, and former Member of the European Parliament Andrew Brons.

The online video platform YouTube yesterday banned several high profile pro-White and racial realist channels, including those run by former Louisiana state representative Dr David Duke, Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance, and prominent ‘Alt Right’ personality Richard Spencer.

This is the latest stage in an ongoing war against pro-White voices online. As regular readers will know, Heritage and Destiny was banned from YouTube just over a year ago, and from PayPal around four years ago.

We have to be realistic. Outside certain specific legal circumstances (such as making meeting-rooms and leaflet delivery available for election candidates), no one is under any obligation to provide us with a platform. Still less are they under any ‘free speech’ obligation when providing a free service such as YouTube or Facebook.

Sadly pro-White organisations and individuals will face continuing struggles online, having to move to platforms that refuse to censor us. This will risk ghettoising ourselves, since by comparison to YouTube, Facebook, etc. these platforms will tend to be populated mainly by folk who are already sympathetic to our movement.

The lesson is twofold.

(1) There is still an important role for hardcopy publications despite the proliferation of online access. If you subscribe to Heritage and Destiny, we can guarantee that you will receive your six issues each year – whereas if you subscribe to a YouTube channel it might disappear tomorrow.

(2) Pro-White activists must seek opportunities to engage with a wider public, whether online or in the ‘real’ world. When Covid-19 restrictions are relaxed, there will be no substitute for face to face engagement, both with existing movement sympathisers at conferences, rallies and the like; and with the general public via the electoral process and other public activity.

Fredrick Töben (1944-2020)

Dr Fredrick Töben (above, second left) at the Newmarket Hotel, Port Adelaide, South Australia with (left to right) the late Jock Spooner (H&D patron); a visiting Cuban friend; Peter Hartung (Töben’s Adelaide Institute colleague); and Dave Astin.

H&D greatly regret to report the death of Dr Fredrick Töben, the German-Australian revisionist historian. Dr Töben died yesterday three weeks after his 76th birthday, having been seriously ill for the past two or three months.

Fredrick Töben came to Australia from his German birthplace as a ten-year-old boy when his parents emigrated. He studied at Victoria College of Wellington, New Zealand; Melbourne University; and Stuttgart University.

In the late 1970s Töben lived in Rhodesia towards the end of that country’s struggle against Black Marxist revolutionaries. After a year teaching in Nigeria, he returned to Australia teaching at various institutions in the state of Victoria during the early 1980s.

Töben’s dismissal from his teaching post in 1985 led to a five-year legal battle. He eventually won damages against the State of Victoria and relocated to Adelaide, South Australia, where he formed the Truth Mission in 1994, becoming Adelaide Institute a year later.

This produced a series of ‘Holocaust’ revisionist publications, and led to Töben being targeted by Jewish and ‘anti-fascist’ organisations worldwide, while he became part of an international network of revisionists attending conferences sponsored by the Institute for Historical Review (IHR), and later The Barnes Review, serving on the latter’s Board of Contributing Editors until his death.

Dr Fredrick Töben (above right) with then Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the Tehran Conference in 2006.

In 1998 he was arrested in Germany under that country’s notorious laws restricting free research and discussion of historical topics, spending seven months in prison.

In October 2000 the Australian Human Rights Commission ordered Töben to remove parts of the Adelaide Institute’s website, triggering years of appeals and efforts to enforce the judgment.

Eventually in 2009 Töben was jailed for three months in Adelaide for contempt of court.

Three years earlier Töben had travelled to Iran to speak at the Tehran International Conference to Review the Global Vision of the Holocaust, promoted by then Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. This event attracted worldwide publicity and intensified the targeting of Töben and other participants.

In October 2008 while in transit at London’s Heathrow Airport, Töben was seized from his plane and served with an international arrest warrant issued at the request of German authorities who wanted to jail him again for articles published on the Adelaide Institute website.

Dr Fredrick Töben with Lady Michèle Renouf in London, 2008, following the legal victory against a European Arrest Warrant

This was expected to be a rapid ‘rubber-stamping’ procedure, but soon after Töben was taken into custody, Dr David Duke telephoned Lady Michèle Renouf in London to alert her to the arrest. Lady Renouf mobilised a specialist legal team of solicitor Kevin Lowry-Mullins and barrister Ben Watson, resulting in a historic legal victory against the Federal Republic and their Crown Prosecution Service allies.

After a month in Wandsworth prison awaiting the London court’s decision, Töben was freed and returned to Australia.

Persecution by the usual suspects continued, and a legal action for court costs (related to a series of Australian cases) resulted in Töben being declared bankrupt and having his passport confiscated in 2012.

While there was a short period in 2018-2019 when there were serious disagreements between Dr Töben and H&D, these differences were resolved long before his death. We salute Dr Fredrick Töben’s memory as a valiant fighter for historical truth and justice.

Many happy returns – John Bean

Bill Baillie on the left (his position in the photo not his politics!); the late Paul Barnes (centre), who shared John’s views on racial-nationalism and John Bean (definitely on the right!). When John informed H&D editor Mark Cotterill that he and Bill only shared around 50% of the views expressed in the magazine, Mark replied that was very good, and slightly more than he did! Mark explained that unlike a party-political magazine, H&D is here to represent a very broad cross section of nationalist opinion, not all of which everybody will agree with.

The editor, assistant editor and all the staff at H&D Towers, would like to wish our oldest subscriber (by two months) – John Bean – a very happy 93rd birthday.

John was born on June 27th, 1927 in Carshalton, Surrey. The family moved to Blackfen, near Sidcup in Kent, where at the age of 13 he suffered the trauma of being bombed out of the family home in February 1941.

Aged 18, John began his National Service in 1945. He was largely apolitical, although he had briefly flirted with communism whilst at school, calling for support for the Soviet Union. Initially he was a trainee navigator in the RAF Volunteer Reserve.

Later as a sailor in the Royal Navy. John became a radar mechanic and was placed on HMS Bulawayo, a fleet supply ship which made several visits to Trinidad until the end of his naval service in June 1948.

He briefly lived in India during 1950, working as a chemist in a paint factory, although he failed to settle and returned to Britain six months later.

Upon his return, John began to attend meetings of the Union Movement, being attracted by the ‘Europe a Nation’ policy and by the time Oswald Mosley had spent in prison for his beliefs. John initially served as a member of the Special Propaganda Service, the main duty of which was to sell copies of the party’s newspaper Union.

Soon however he became a leading figure active on behalf of the UM in the East End of London, before being appointed to head a branch in Putney in 1952. Despite these advancements, John grew disillusioned of the UM’s chances of making any real headway and he left them altogether in February 1953. A brief stopover in the local Conservative Party in Barnes followed but lasted only two months.

After a spell on the side-lines he then linked up with Andrew Fountaine, who had been attempting to form his own party, the National Front, and began to produce a journal, National Unity.

His work attracted the attention of A.K. Chesterton and, with the National Front idea failing to get off the ground, he decided to join the League of Empire Loyalists, serving as its Northern Organiser and then in the HQ in London. Continuing to produce his paper, now called The Loyalist, John soon became frustrated at both the lack of political activity and the links to the Conservative Party that were the hallmarks of the LEL.

He left in 1957 to set up the National Labour Party with Fountaine. Fountaine, a Norfolk landowner from a rural landowning family, was officially President of the new group, but was largely a figurehead: control actually lay with John.

The NLP gained a few minor results in elections but was always destined to be a small fringe movement, and as a result John decided to merge his party with another LEL splinter group, the White Defence League in 1960 to form the British National Party.

John Bean was made leader of the party upon its foundation. Early in the group’s life, both John and former White Defence League leader Colin Jordan were approached by Oswald Mosley, who offered them roles in his Union Movement if they agreed to its subsuming the BNP, but both men rejected the offer.

Initially gaining some support in London, the party soon ran into trouble when it became clear that Colin Jordan was emerging as its spokesman. A journalist commented in 1962 that Jordan was becoming the British Adolf Hitler. John jokingly responded to the Daily Mail reporter that that made him “the British Joseph Goebbels”. Despite this, John soon clashed with Jordan over his extremism and before long Jordan had left to form the National Socialist Movement, taking emerging figures John Tyndall and Denis Pirie with him. Matters had come to a head at the party’s national council meeting in 1962 when John proposed a motion to condemn Jordan’s open support for National Socialism. It was passed 7 to 5, but the party immediately split as a result, albeit with around 80% of the membership remaining within the BNP. John had blamed the associations with National Socialism that Jordan and Tyndall brought for the party’s marginal position in British politics.

At the 1964 general election John Bean stood as BNP candidate in Southall and obtained 3,410 votes (9.3%), the highest post-war vote for a minority party at that time. Another BNP candidate picked up nearly 2,000 votes in Deptford. In 1966 he again stood in Southall, but his vote fell to 2,600. With BNP membership only marginally increasing, John felt the need to try to create a nationalist front with like groups and arranged, with the help of Ted Budden, a private meeting with his old mentor A.K. Chesterton and a spokesman of the Racial Preservation Society. The result of the meeting was the founding of the National Front in 1967.

John became something of a peripheral figure in the NF, as the BNP element was somewhat side-lined. He held the post of Deputy Chairman of the Executive Directorate, a body which was largely subordinate to the Policy Directorate and stood as second candidate for the Ealing constituency in the 1967 Greater London Council elections until resigning in 1968. Still an NF member, he was recalled to positions of minor influence from time to time until 1972 when he largely ceased active involvement. Retreating into political retirement, his membership lapsed in 1977

He emerged only briefly to lend some support to his old friend Andrew Fountaine’s NF Constitutional Movement and to take part in the Countryside Alliance March of 1st March 1998 – which was also attended by supporters of Nick Griffin, by then inside the BNP.

John eventually ended his retirement after the political fall of John Tyndall and joined the British National Party under the leadership of Nick Griffin. He became an active official of the BNP (mostly in administration) and was a candidate for the party in the 2004 European elections, where he was seventh on a list of seven candidates for the Scotland constituency.

He formerly ran his own website, but then wrote a regular column for the main BNP website, and served as editor of BNP magazine Identity until March 2010.

Due to dissatisfaction with his leadership, John demanded that Nick Griffin resign as National Chairman and focus more on representing the North West region as an MEP.

In May 2011, John endorsed Andrew Brons (the BNP MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber) in his challenge for the BNP leadership. He made significant contributions to the Brons team web site, including articles on ‘Genetics and Inheritance’ and ‘Nationalism and a European Confederation’. He subsequently became involved in Brons’s party the British Democratic Party, established in February 2013.

John lived in London, and later Suffolk, before retiring to Yorkshire to live nearer his expanding family – three grandchildren, and five great grandchildren (so far!).

During periods away from politics John wrote four books.

Ten Miles from Anywhere (Hedgerow Publishing 1995), looked at the changes in a Suffolk village from the beginning of the 20th century.

Many Shades of Black, (New Millennium 1999), was Bean’s political memoirs up to that date.

His first novel Blood in the Square, which fictionalized some of his political experiences in the 1960s.

And in August 2016 his historical novel Trail of the Viking Finger (Troubador Publications).

Yes, White Live DO Matter – as ALL lives should matter

‘I’d like to apologise… to absolutely f*****g NOBODY’: So, says Burnley fan Jake Hepple, via Facebook, who rightly refused to repent for the ‘White Lives Matter’ banner.

The Burnley fan from Colne in East Lancashire defended his move to help arrange for a ‘White Lives Matter Burnley’ banner to be flown above the Etihad Stadium, Manchester just before his sides 5-0 demolition by Premier League champions Manchester City on Monday evening.

Shortly after kick-off at Monday’s game, a plane was spotted flying high above the Etihad stadium displaying the ‘White Lives Matter Burnley’ (note – not Burnley FC) banner displaying the slogan and came shortly after all twenty two players, club staff and match officials had kneeled (the so called ‘taking the knee’, copied from the ‘bending the knee’ scene on Game of Thrones – an American fantasy drama television series, which is still shown on British TV) prior to the game in solidarity with the black career criminal George Floyd and the so-called ‘Black Lives Matter’ mob.

Burnley fan Jake Hepple has reportedly claimed responsibility for the display, which came as an apparent riposte to the spate of displays of support for the ‘Black Lives Matter’ mob which have become commonplace in the English game since the restart of the Premier League last week and prompted the Lancashire club, as well as captain Ben Mee, to strongly condemn ‘White Lives Matter’.

Hepple, though, remained unrepentant. Borrowing a slightly altered phrase from Irish UFC superstar Conor McGregor, made after a fight in New York City, Hepple wrote on his since-deleted Facebook page that “I’d like to take this time to apologise .. TO ABSOLUTELY F*****G NOBODY!”

“It’s now apparently racist to say White lives matter,” he continued on his Facebook account (which has now not surprisingly been deleted), which also displayed a photograph of Hepple alongside former BNP member, and English Defence League founder Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (AKA ‘Tommy Robinson’).

Burnley FC fired off a statement condemning the banner in mega quick time. In fact, so quick that it appeared online even before the first half of the match had finished!

Burnley FC Chairman Mike Garlick and his CEO and general dogsbody Neil Hart of course fiercely condemned Hepple’s actions in their grovelling statement, which read:

“Burnley Football Club strongly condemns the actions of those responsible for the aircraft and offensive banner that flew over The Etihad Stadium on Monday evening.

“We wish to make it clear that those responsible are not welcome at Turf Moor.

“This, in no way, represents what Burnley Football Club stands for and we will work fully with the authorities to identify those responsible and issue lifetime bans.

“The club has a proud record of working with all genders, religions and faiths through its award-winning Community scheme, and stands against racism of any kind.

“We are fully behind the Premier League’s Black Lives Matter initiative and, in line with all other Premier League games undertaken since Project Restart, our players and football staff willingly took the knee at kick-off at Manchester City.

“We apologise unreservedly to the Premier League, to Manchester City and to all those helping to promote Black Lives Matter.”

Burnley staff and players “taking the knee” before Monday’s game in Manchester

Of course, Garlick and Hart not being amongst the ‘sharpest tools in the shed’ raced their statement out before even checking, or even understanding the facts behind the banner!

The banner read ‘Burnley’ and not ‘Burnley FC’ and was in no way linked to the club. It was paid for by supporters – mostly ex-supporters now – of the Burnley Suicide Squad (BSS), who were a notorious football firm in the 1980s, right up to the mid-2000s, but are mainly ‘retired’ now. In general, the BSS were made up of patriotic English nationalists, who were not in any way linked to the BNP (as some in the media claim).

To quote former BSS leader Andrew Porter; “I’m a proud to be a hooligan. A lot of people out there think we are scum. Well I don’t give a f**k about their point of view. After the Burnley riots I was classed as a nazi who voted BNP. I’ve never voted in my life and I wouldn’t vote for the BNP because I’m English. It’s about time we had an English National Party; the Welsh and Scots have their own national parties so why should we be any different. Is it wrong to display our national flag? Some people in our government think it is. They don’t want us to have an identity. Well, I’ve got a message for them: you’ll never take England out of the English, and you’ll never take the hooligan out of me.”

Garlic and Hart rattle on about those responsible for the banner not being welcome at Turf Moor (Burnley FC’s stadium) anymore and when they find them, they will all get life bans! You could not really make it up, could you? Don’t these idiots realise that the vast majority of the BSS are already banned – mostly for life – from Turf Moor! And those who are not, would never even consider paying the rip off prices that BFC (and all Premier League clubs) charge to enter Turf Moor – with CCTV cameras pointing everywhere – watching a group over vastly over-paid, over-rated, spoiled brats, commonly known as Premier League footballers.

Garlic and Hart then go on about their club having a proud record of working with all genders, religions and faiths through its award-winning Community scheme, and stands against racism of any kind.

Well if that’s the case, why are there so few black players in the Burnley FC team? Let alone the first team squad (three at the most). And why does their club not have any Asian players, or any Muslim players (when the town of Burnley is at least 12% Asian/Muslim)? And why does Burnley FC not have one single Gay player? What sort of ‘proud record’ is this? They must live in some sort of fantasy land!

The statement goes on about how much Burnley FC are behind the violent mob ‘Black Lives Matter’, and how all their team willingly took the knee – Game of Thones style!

One thing the statement did get right about the banner was that it – “in no way represents what Burnley Football Club stands for” – very true. The banner represented the real silent majority of White working-class people in Burnley, who in general have little or no time for Burnley FC, as is reflected in their pathetically low attendance figures (they can’t even fill their tiny ground for most matches!).

Why would ordinary White working-class Burnley people want to have anything to do with the likes of Garlic and Hart, as they may as well be from a different planet. They know nothing and care nothing for the ordinary people of Burnley, apart from wanting to fleece their hard-earned money off them, to pay the inflated wage packets of the likes of Ben Mee.

Ben Mee, himself an embarrassment to most Burnley fans, has played for the club since 2012. After being rejected by Man City – he was there for four years without ever making the Premier League first team – he was loaned out to Leicester City, where he struggled only making 15 appearances in 2011, before being loaned out to Burnley.

Ben Mee cries all the way to the bank after another Burnley defeat

Mee who is now team Captain, could not wait to jump on the politically correct bandwagon and spoke to Sky Sports News directly after the game, whining about his and the club’s ‘shame’ at the banner incident following his teams capitulation to a far superior – and much more enriched! – Man City side.

“We as a group of (White) players condemn it, we’re ashamed, we’re embarrassed. It definitely had a massive impact on us to see that in the sky. We were embarrassed, disappointed, upset. We are embarrassed that our name was in it.

“That they tried to attach it to our club – it doesn’t belong anywhere near our club. Fans like that don’t deserve to be around football.”

Of course, it’s very easy for somebody from a privileged middle-class background like Mee to attack ordinary White working-class Burnley fans. Remember Mee earns more in just one week, than most Burnley FC fans earn in a whole year. In reality its people like Mee that don’t deserve to be around football. And when the peoples of Britain finally awake from their slumber and elect a nationalist government, then he and his ilk will be dealt with.

After the incident Lancashire Police stated that they were investigating the matter to determine if any laws were broken! But later the next day – after spending many hours consulting with their legal team and the CPS – they had to admit that no laws had been broken, and no action against the banner organisers would be taken.

Remember that this is the same Lancashire Police service who claimed for years that they did not have the time or resources to investigate the ‘grooming’ scandals (mainly involving Pakistani men) that have plagued many towns in the county for over 20 years now.

The ‘grooming’ of young White working class and sub-working class girls from towns – including Burnley – have largely been ignored by the politically correct Lancashire Police, who would rather turn a blind eye to these White girls being raped, trafficked and even murdered (as happened in Blackpool) than be accused of being “racist”!

The Grooming which is (mainly – but not exclusively) carried out by second and third generation Pakistani Sunni Muslims, has now reached what was the far north west of Lancashire – Barrow in Furness (moved over to Cumbria in 1974).

In Barrow, a town which was until very recently almost all White, is now enjoying all the benefits of enrichment, with Asian ‘grooming’ gangs operating in the town with almost immunity from prosecution.

In a video statement, Chief Supt Dean Holden said he had to be “very careful … because I don’t want to undermine any judicial processes” but “what I would say is when the question is asked, ‘Is there an organised gang of Asian men in Barrow conducting abuse and exploitation against individuals?’ – our investigation has shown that has not been corroborated or otherwise evidenced.”

In addition, the force said it was investigating a new allegation that “circulated on social media concerning reports of physical and sexual abuse committed against a woman, aged in her late teens” in Barrow.

In fact, Cumbria Police, not only refused to close down arrest these ‘grooming’ gangs, but instead arrested and charged one of their victims!

A 19-year-old White girl has been charged with perverting the course of justice after telling police she was drugged and raped by an Asian sex gang in Cumbria. The teenager from Barrow was held in custody awaiting a court hearing, having allegedly breached her bail conditions! Cumbria Police confirmed it was investigating an incident of physical and sexual abuse that was reported by a woman in her late teens. The girl later alleged on Facebook that she had been beaten, burned, drugged and trafficked for sex throughout the north of England by Pakistani men. Her post included very distressing pictures of bruises, scratches and burn marks, and sparked a social media storm.

But to Burnley FC including their captain Ben Mee, their Chairman Mike Garlic, and their CEO Neil Hart, the lives of young working-class White girls really DON’T MATTER. They just don’t care about working class people, but then again with their money why should they?

Congratulations to Jake Hepple and all the lads from Burnley Suicide Squad, the banner stunt was great, it got the message over in a completely non-violent way – unlike the “Black Lives Matter” mob whose violent demonstrations, vandalism, lootings and stabbings have shown many ‘on the fence’ Brits what their real agenda is – the complete eradication of our history, heritage, culture and even identity.

End note. Readers should remember that it was not that ago that the BNP, once led by the legendary Steve Smith, were the second largest party in Burnley, and were polling up to 35% of the vote in local elections – 40% in Padiham (where the BNP had all three Borough councillors plus the County Councillor). The England First Party, also once led by Steve Smith, polled well in most of the Burnley wards they contested too. That support is still out there. It just needs a well organised, nationalist party to get back to basics and take advantage of it.

Jake Hepple’s girlfriend Megan Rambadt – sacked for her political views

UPDATE: Jake Hepple’s girlfriend Megan Rambadt has been sacked from her job due to alleged ‘racist’ social media posts, though there is no suggestion that her political views had ever had any negative influence on her work.

UKIP’s new Bombay-born leader

Freddy Vachha, the new leader of UKIP

A British political party now has an ethnic minority leader – but it’s not the party you might expect.

The United Kingdom Independence Party was (under Nigel Farage’s leadership) the winner of the 2014 European Parliamentary elections in the UK, polling 4.4 million votes and electing 24 MEPs. This success and continuing pressure on David Cameron’s Conservative Party was the biggest reason why Cameron agreed to hold a referendum on Britain’s EU membership in 2016.

So UKIP was to a very large extent responsible for Brexit.

However post-Brexit the party has lurched from one disaster to another, losing most of its elected representatives, activists and voters to Farage’s Brexit Party, which in turn collapsed at last December’s general election.

After a succession of comically inept leaders, it’s slightly surprising that UKIP still (just about) exists. Today it announced yet another new leader, London regional chairman Freddy Vachha.

The leadership had been vacant since the resignation of Dr Richard Braine last October. Discounting interim/caretaker leaders, Mr Vachha is the sixth UKIP leader since Farage stepped down following the Brexit referendum victory less than four years ago.

Freddy Vachha addressing the media today

Freddy Vachha was born in December 1957 in Bombay (now known as Mumbai), India, son of a Parsi father and a British mother.

An accountant and tax consultant, Mr Vachha was runner-up in last year’s UKIP leadership election. His first press conference as leader was held today at the foot of Winston Churchill’s statue in London.

We might glean some idea of the professionalism we can expect from UKIP by glancing at Mr Vaccha’s CV which he presented during last year’s leadership election (click below).

This crank organisation once managed to win a nationwide UK election and changed the course of British politics: perhaps that tells us something about the essential fragility of the party system and is a sign of hope for our movement!
