A blog by Alistair Barbour-Nationalism and party's like the BNP do not hold any of the answers that modern day Britain is facing. Nationalism,religion and 'divisive multiculturalism [not immigration] causes divisions. Right/left wing ideologies are tearing this country apart.

What now for Tommy Robinson?
Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll have left the EDL. SO’ what
I’m not privy to any information about the whys and
wherefore about how this happened [despite the timing of my post on Monday;
purely coincidental] but all I can say is ‘if they are genuine’ good luck to
them. They are working with the forward thinking ‘Quilliam foundation’ that
will mentor and guide them on another path. After all who better to guide someone away
from an extremist organisation than someone who were once themselves members of
I watched Robinson on ‘Newsnight’ and thought he came
over well. But’ I didn't like what he said about halting Muslim immigration.
That’s the last thing we should be doing. We need to continue welcoming refugees
and asylum seekers from anywhere, but we must insist that they leave their
cultural baggage where they fled from. By this I mean archaic customs such as Sharia law, Forced
marriages, FGM and other such Stone Age practices, that we in the west 'should' find abhorrent. We need to get past culture. It’s about acting as 21st
century human beings. The only question immigrants need to answer. Do you want to live in a secular, free, equal and modern
So now it all depends what Tommy Robinson’s politics are
as in how he casts of his past? If he joined Labour his past would be forgiven overnight.
EX BNP and NF members appear to have become extremely clean by supporting them? They can even write books about the violence they participated in
towards black and Asian people. But because they have adopted and embraced the post-modern
cultural apologist mantra of unrestricted multiculturalism
they are clean. The left never expose ex far-right people in the ranks of
Labour, but will use them joining another party to attack it. After all Anti-fascist
organisations are strongly linked to the unions and the Labour party. That’s a fact.
Whilst in the BNP I saw how these organisations worked.
They undoubtedly do parties like the BNP harm but first and foremost they are
political. I've already mentioned that the Tories and liberals treat me [on the
whole] well. The bile and hate that comes from Labour and their political
partners has to be seen to be believed. I still get some now just walking down the street by some
antifascist Muppet who doesn't know I quit, and I’m only know in my town. Robinson
and Carroll have national recognition.
The antifascists leaflet on behalf of the unions and Labour.
After all, its Labour votes that the BNP was taking, because it was the working
classes that had been let down by Labour. None of the other parties ever put
third part leaflets out against the BNP. They tended to take on the BNP
directly. The way it should be done.
The antifascists need an enemy. It was mentioned in the
Quilliam press conference that Robinson may be setting up a new political
party. If he is a threat to Labour votes he will find himself back under the antifascists radar, and if he even mentions immigration or any questions to do with Islam, again he will find himself back in the spotlight as a fascist.
There is nothing wrong with having these conversations
but we are, and need to be very cautious about who is having them and why? That is not a veiled word of caution about Robinson. That
should apply to anyone. It’s not about the conversations and questions we
should be having. It’s about the agenda
Also’ Just a word on Griffin! I mentioned in the previous post
that Griffin loses his seat next year. No more money, very few members. I said he would move more to the EDL strategy of street
protests. Well I think he may have been forced to move his grand plan forward
after Tommie’s resignation. He is falling over himself on all social media to
get as many EDL over to him as possible. Some will no doubt go over to the BNP. But many will go
the same way as the BNP when it fractured a few years ago. Lots of little
wannabes setting up different groups, fighting each other for supremacy.
