H&D Exclusive: Griffin and Dowson’s ‘British Freedom Party’ collapses

But it’s not OK to be a shyster and a traitor Nick, as your former friends Joe Finnie and Steve Squire will tell you!

During the last few days the British Freedom Party, led by former Britain First deputy leader Jayda Fransen but run behind the scenes by Nick Griffin’s business partner Jim Dowson, has collapsed amid accusations of financial misconduct and connections to the ‘anti-fascist’ organisation Hope not Hate.

The BFP was part of an international network coordinated by the Italian racial nationalist Roberto Fiore, who might have thought he had started to assemble a credible team after the recruitment of former London BNP organiser Steve Squire and former Glasgow BNP organiser Joe Finnie.

Although the party has not yet registered with the Electoral Commission, so could not yet use its name on ballot papers, Mr Finnie was standing effectively as a British Freedom Party candidate in the Scottish Parliamentary elections on May 6th, as were Jim Dowson and Jayda Fransen.

However H&D understands that Mr Finnie and Mr Squire quit the party this week, alleging (among other irregularities) that Jim Dowson has maintained continual and improper contact with Hope not Hate‘s laughably titled ‘head of intelligence’ – the foul-mouthed buffoon Matthew Collins – and a member of Collins’ family.

Mr Dowson will doubtless move on to other business opportunities. There is always some corner of the political or anti-abortion scene where a fast buck can be made, although since Nick Griffin was appointed last summer as editor of the BFP’s newspaper The Britannia only one further issue has appeared!

The collapse of the British Freedom Party is surely the end of Nick Griffin’s career in nationalist politics. He clearly believed that the BFP would be his vehicle for a comeback, instead it has been a one-way ticket to further ignominy and oblivion.

The inside story of the BFP’s collapse, the exposure of Hope not Hate‘s ‘intelligence’ operation, and the political death of Nick Griffin will appear in the May edition of Heritage and Destiny.
