OUR TIME HAS COME
Being in Nationalist politics in an up and down existence and no matter what we do or achieve we never seem to attract any TV time without what we say being twisted and turned against us.
However this time I feel that we may receive normal treatment in fact it is possible that we will be treated as any other political party, something which we have demanded for many decades.
For a number of months now we have been hearing rumours of BNP members defecting to the NF and to be honest there have been a few but a steady trickle only.
Since Question Time with the BNP’s leader we have seen nearly 900 enquiries over and above the norm. This has helped us to over a 70% increase in membership during this period.
Recently the BBC contacted me as the parties Press Officer if I would do a piece for the Politics Show regarding the leaching of BNP members to the NF (not my words).
I of course prepared myself and arrived at BBC Leeds and was met by the team and the interview was recorded.
The next step was for the party to provide proof to the BBC that what I had said was true and provable otherwise they would not run the programme.
Our Membership Dept along with our IT dept were able to prove this to be the case both verbally as well as via written proof and because this proof had taken a week to obtain the programme was delayed a week.
So this Sunday the 21st at 12 noon on the Politics Show the piece will be aired
However if you live outside Yorkshire then you can watch the programme on BBC i player around an hour later.
For now here are two short trailers for this Sunday’s programme.http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/politics_show/regions/yorkshire_and_lincolnshire/8522393.stm

But its national press officer, Yorkshire-based Tom Linden, claims 13 BNP branches have at least discussed switching allegiance. He has named four in Yorkshire: Todmorden, Hull, Bradford and Colne Valley.
