    BNP To Change Leader In 2013

    BNP Conference Plans Way Forward as Nick Griffin Announces Intention to Step Down in 2013

    BNP News

    Sunday 23/05/2010 - 23:01

    The British National Party’s Advisory Council (AC) and other key figures of the party’s structure have completed a weekend of forward planning to overhaul and modernise the party as Nick Griffin MEP announced his intention to step down as leader by the end of 2013 to concentrate on his re-election campaign to the European Parliament.

    The extended AC meeting and strategy planning session, held in the East Midlands, also contained a full analysis of the election results, a report on current membership levels, a review of the modernising measures the party is putting in place to bring its election fighting capability up to speed and a no-holds barred presentation and question and answer session with party consultant Jim Dowson.

    Mr Griffin made his leadership decision announcement at the end of the first day of the proceedings.

    “By then I would have been leader of the BNP for 15 years and that is long enough,” Mr Griffin said.

    “It will be time to make way for a younger person who does not have any baggage which can be used against the party.”

    Mr Griffin said the timing of his move was predicated by his desire to bring about what he called the putting into place of the last “building blocks” of the BNP’s administrative and political machine.

    “This is going to take at least 18 months to implement and after that I intend to hand the party over to someone who will be able to drive support up to where it can be a serious contender for power,” he said.

    Mr Griffin said he would concentrate on getting re-elected to the European Parliament in the 2014 Euro elections, adding that he was sure the party could retain its two seats and add several more to the tally.

    “I then intend to help the other European nationalist parties to achieve the level of sophistication which the BNP has been able to build up, because a victory for any one of these parties is a victory to all of us.”

    Other news to come out of the conference included:

    - Current party membership stands at just under 14,000 and is increasing by several hundred every month;

    - The party membership churn rate -- the rate at which members fail to renew their membership -- has been cut from over 70 percent to less than 20 percent thanks to the efficient call centre and administrative machine the party now possesses;

    - The BNP’s communication team has been reorganised and will soon be dovetailing with the revamped elections team;

    - The way that the BNP fights elections is to be revolutionised. The “bloody nose” which the party received in the local elections has provided the BNP with an insight into how the Labour Party has switched to a technologically-intensive campaigning methodology, and the lessons have been learned. The BNP will also now be upgrading its systems to match that of the Labour Party and will leave the old method of election fighting behind;

    The figures behind the BNP’s fundraising campaign were revealed in Jim Dowson’s presentation which was followed by an intensive question and answer session. The pertinent facts are as follows:

    - The Truth Truck is owned by the BNP, contrary to internet rumour-mongers, a fact confirmed in person by the BNP treasurer who paid for the vehicle, Jennie Noble.

    - Mr Dowson does not take a commission on any membership applications or other transactions which run through the call centre in Belfast, once again contrary to internet rumour-mongers.

    - The Midas Consultancy has raised more that £2.6 million in donations for the BNP since January 2008, at a cost of £165,000.

    “The BNP emerged from the meeting re-energised and ready for the ongoing struggle to save our nation from destruction at the hands of the old parties,” Mr Griffin concluded.

    A BNPtv interview with Mr Griffin will follow shortly.

    The positive could of course be a renewal of the party with a new leader. The negative can be that the new leader is less nationalist than Griffin. Even though Griffin appeared quite liberal, at least he knew his stuff from decades in the nationalist movement.

    Whilst it's undeniable that Nick griffin has done a good job overall in his time as leader, I'm just wondering whether he's been nudged towards the door marked "exit" by recent events within the party.

    A smart move I think, it effectively ends any attempts to undermine him and the party for the next few years. A new leader would have been needed regardless of whether or not they won any seats as the BNP needs a new image if it is to go any further; just like when Griffin replaced Tyndall.
    It looks like at the moment Simon Darby & Arthur Kemp would be the front runners, both are loyal to Griffin, both are experienced and both are good at handling the media. Personally my money is on Kemp.

    The BNP is becoming a more and more ridiculous assembly of clowns. In the recent General Election, they actually lost votes in Barking, which was still their highest proportion with just under 15%.

    Nationwide, they are completely unimportant, but it's not for being "too radical" or "too whimpish", it's rather generally for the total lack of a clear direction, making it pretty much impossible to vote for them coming from either side --- they try to cater to both the traditional Nationalist and the common man on the street, but fail to convince either.

    There is a need for a pragmatic tackle of problems, but Griffin hasn't done that. The BNP was certainly more credible when Tyndall was still around, regardless of whether that was "too extreme" for the general public; as they're starting to lose Nationalist support on the basis of being "too whimpish" and "too jew-infested".
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Arthur Kemp is very good to have in the BNP, since he is clearly a racialist/ethno nationalist. But since the BNP said they wanted someone without "baggage", I don't think Kemp will be chosen as leader. And I agree with Sigurd that the BNP might as well go on a hardline, since softening ones policies doesn't make a big change I would believe, the media will still call them all sorts of things nasty.

    Actually they didn't lose any voters in Barking (they actually gained a few hundred voter) but they had there % of vote decreased because of the increased turnout (and 4 years of Labour immigration ).


    As for Arthur Kemp I know there is a picture of him with a Nazi eagle (wearing a cowboy hat), but what other baggage does he have? Besides that's easily forgivable I would think (we don't know if it was even his either).
    Sure the media will ask him about his activities in South Africa but there easy enough to counter by simply saying "what has SA achieved under black rule" - answer: "nothing". Kemp is a better choice than Darby because he's more intelligent, articulate and could pretty much destroy any of the cliche arguments libtard's like to use (especially because of his excellent knowledge of history and genetics) - and that is really all that matters in modern politics (within reason).

    What worries me is that if the BNP wish to improve on or even retain their MEPs, then a strong leadership needs to be in place NOW. A recognisible and able leader come election time needs at least a couple of years in the media spotlight.

    I don't like Griffin. Something about him I just don't like, but then again I'm not a real fan of the BNP either.

    • But I have to say that I never saw Mr. Griffin as the right person. From the very start there was something about him that inspired doubt. On this, my wife was far more emphatic. She has met nearly all my main political associates over the years, and I have never known her to be wrong in her personal assessment of a single one of them. From the very first moment she met Griffin she warned me that I should never trust him. I conceded that she could well be right but, nevertheless, I needed some new blood in the party leadership team, particularly in the writing field, where up till then far too much fell on me. I needed someone to take over the editorship and production of Spearhead so that I could give my almost exclusive time and attention to party matters. I took a gamble in taking Griffin on, while resolving to keep a careful eye on him.

      It became clear to me after working with him for some time that he had joined the BNP simply and solely for his own ends. I had been warned of this from the beginning by one or two people who knew him, and it was not long before I realised that their warnings had been correct. He had a history of playing disruptive roles in virtually every organisation with which he had been involved, but at the time I was willing to put this down to the immaturity of youth. I later realised too late that he had not changed a jot. - John Tyndall
