It has been bought to my attention that three BNP members in Northamptonshire that have previously stood as candidates in elections have received an unsolicited information pack from the English Democrats. I can assure you that I have not passed on any information regarding members of the BNP to the English Democrats. Having spoken to the National Secretary of the Party, he is unaware, and also unhappy, that information packs are being sent out to current BNP members. From what I understand the information is being sent out in official Party envelopes so whoever is doing this has access to official party stationery, which I do not. If any members of the BNP in Northants that has NOT stood as candidates in the past have received an information pack from the English Democrats can you please let me know. The contact details of past candidates is available in the public domain, the details of normal members should not be available. I can only assume that someone at Head office has made it their job to target past BNP candidates in the hope that they are no longer members, can see the benefits of joining the English Democrats, and stand again in elections.
I am furious that this has happened just a week or so after officially joining the English Democrats as fingers are automatically pointing at me for leaking information. I am not naive enough to think an information pack would make anyone change party, I had my reasons for leaving the BNP and left it several months to weigh up the options. I will not deny that I made what I consider to be some good friends in Northants BNP, and I hope the actions of a person or persons unknown do not tarnish a good friendship.
I have been informed that the English Democrats have employed a marketing company to recruit new members ahead of next year’s County Council elections. The company concerned was previously used by the British National Party. 12,000 letters have been sent out nationwide. If you receive one and wish to be removed either call the number or return the letter asking to be removed. I hope this clears things up.
