Leadership Challenge 2008


We are all aware that under Nick Griffin the British National Party has made some positive inroads into local politics. However, many Party officials and members have realised that the time has come for a fresh and democratic structure.

Change is needed to take the British National Party forward onto serious electoral success. A structure that will give priority to making sure that the BNP is financially solvent, politically astute, credible and electable, truly represents family values in everything that it does and maintains democratic management of the Party in a fair and transparent manner.

Councillor Colin Auty will be standing this coming summer as the leadership contender representing reform and change of the BNP. Colin was elected as a District Councillor onto Kirklees Council back in May 2006 and has proved to be an extremely hard working BNP Councillor.

Colin is married with two daughters and believes that the time is right for important changes to be made within the British National Party for it to become a serious challenger in elections and for the future of this country.

Colin has gained a great deal of experience into the inner workings of a local council, especially as he currently sits on various committees including Planning and Health.

Many of you will know Colin through his involvement in Great White Records and his latest album ‘Truth Hurts’ has sold more copies than any other artist from GWR. Colin is a very well respected and popular councillor, activist and artist within the BNP. He regularly tours the country speaking at meetings and singing to help groups raise vital funds.


Constitutional Change & Internal Reforms

The BNP at present has a great deal of potential which is simply not utilised to its full extent and this is largely because the current leadership runs the party in a very dictatorial manner. These are just some of the reforms that should be implemented:

* The Party Chairman should deal with the political affairs of the Party, but a separately appointed Party Manager should manage the internal affairs.

* Scrutiny Panel of regionally elected officials to scrutinise the inner workings of the Party, who everyone is accountable to.

* The establishment of an Executive, Judiciary and Political Wing of the Party.

* A Shadow Cabinet to set up specialist policy departments.

* A Working Party to be set up to scrutinise and re-draft the BNP Constitution which at present gives sole power and control to the Party Chairman.

* Total financial overhaul of the Party, reallocating the power of the National Treasurer to a professional chartered accountant.

* All office holders should be made fully accountable.

* Far more support for all of our Councillors.

* A review of all those expelled due to lack of a fair and proper disciplinary procedure being in place.

* A concerted effort to target the seriously damaging negative image that surrounds the BNP.

Well done Cllr Auty.

Make Griffin fight on a Griffin/Collett ticket. If he wants to support Collett, dispite the damage he does to the party, OK so be it let's shackel Collett to him at the ankles so to speak.

Let our watchwords be:

Honesty-Democracy-electability.

This is good news. Every genuine nationalist owes Colin a big 'thank you'. A couple of points.
1) The May 1st election results were NOT fantastic. I have not had time to check the results but understand that the BNP made a net gain of nine councillors plus R.B elected to the G.L.A. The BNP stood over 600 candidates. That is over 600 stand and nine get elected. That is dismal. It is especially dismal since Labour is in crisis and Labour voters should have come to the BNP.
2)The BNP leadership may believe that the membership is now solidly behind them. I do not believe this to be the case. I know that many 2008 BNP council candidates want the BNP leadership changed. They stood out of loyalty to the BNP and nationalism. They did not stand out of loyalty to the current BNP leadership. Mr Griffin can not count on their vote.

I know Colin and he is a superb candidate and he has,I hear, a superb support team.
Good luck Colin.

About time Colin! Good luck and I hope its a clean campaign.If by some strange occurance you membership is annulled or due to sub-section 311/563 sub-paragraph 789/361 sub-sentence 6321/8764 your leadership challenge is void you can always come and join us. Dont forget us all when you move into the farmhouse in Wales.

There is not a nicer more friendly, honest and true British Nationalist in the UK than Councillor Colin Auty.
He has spoken many times at my meetings and everything he says is from his heart and from real experience.
Experience of living daily with the horrible results of the failed multi-culti experiment as a working councillor. Colin and his family are true friends and live for our party and they fight daily for our peoples future.
PAXMAN, do not worry how Colin would handle a political interviewer, Colin knows very well how to handle them, you see what he says comes from his heart he does not need to make anything up or side step questions. They will only hear the truth from Colin.
Remember if Colin can work successfully in a multi-culti council chamber then white scum media demi gods will not phase him.
Once again Colin my friend I am so proud of you well done.

Colin Auty will get about 5% of the vote and the Party will excrete him and his dumb supporters painlessly and effortlessly.
----------------------------------
The above quote from a N.G supporter demonstates why we need reform that can only come with a new Chairman. The quote from the N.G supporter shows total comtempt for the democratic process and total contempt for the BNP membership. Exercise your democratic rights and you be 'excreted'. Why should we expect better? After all V of F labeled last years leadership challangers supporters as , quote, 'VERMIN'. Well the number of 'VERMIN' are increasing and want change.

Looks like your already out Colin just because you dare to challenge Gri££en. Only 5% of vote 'don't think so'!

I live in Dewsbury, an Asian/Muslim stronghold. I ‘live the dream’ day in day out, I know what the people think. My wife constantly worries about my safety, but I get on with the job in hand. I don't preach to the converted, I FIGHT for my children's future amongst the unconverted on a daily basis (cut the mustard mmmm?). I find the expulsion of good nationalists abhorrent – all done by one single man without a committee decision based on a fair hearing. The one thing that worries me about promoting a person to the very top, is that once settled, and solely in command, that person can then destroy anyone who becomes a potential threat to their leadership or may voice opposing concerns, every one of you nationalists should be worried over this.

Cllr Colin Auty

Clearly, Mr Pugh, you have no concept of satire. But that is your problem. I really dont like personal attacks and I don't respect those who make them. Lets keep to the facts. The first fact to be ascertained is what contribution have you made to the nationalist cause? ie) how long have you been a member of a nationalist party, how much money have you donated, which elections have you stood in ? Before you slag off other nationalists we would like to know your credentials(and please make them varifiable)

The BNP belongs to us, not to Nick Griffin. We will take back our party - whatever it takes. The welfare of our children is at stake here.
Griffin and his minions are a minor problem and will be removed through the work of such good men as Colin.t

The BNP is fighting a political war with the establishemnt. The establishment favourite way of opposing the party is to use hostile infiltration to disrupt and split the organization.This is not a figment of our imagination.Look at the recent case of Sykes in Bradford and many other examples!
The creation of a totally unqulified democratic structure in the BNP would give the green light to all sorts of enemy infiltration and suversion - the party would be split and destroyed like the NF in the 80s

I think that you are missing the point.
1) The BNP security ,presumably by order of the Chairmasn, intercept a persons (Sadie Graham's) messages. That is illegal and is an offence that carries a possible two year
prison sentence.
2) The BNP broadcast the intercepted message on their website. That is an offence that can carry a prison sentence.
3) BNP security enter Sadie Graham's home by deception that is an offence.
4) BNP security remove goods from Sadie Grahams house in her absence and without her permission. That is an offemce. I think it is the equivilent of theft. It is imaterial who the goods belonged to.
5) BNP security access the contents of Sadie Graham's computer's hard drive. Violation of data protection and I would presume invasion of privacy.
6) The police wont act.
7)The media wont report the matter
7) establishment politicians who know about this matter wont discuss it.
I think the BNP is already infiltrated. What orther conclusion is there?

Guess who was a major figure in the NF splits in the 1980's?
