Poor John, but to be fair, his removal from his position has almost certainly been on the cards for quite a while. He has been privy to a great deal of the shady and downright deceitful dealings of Mr Griffin over the last couple of years, so much so in fact that Griffin has been, for sometime, completely perplexed on how he is going to get rid of him without risking John doing the honourable thing and exposing the corruption and pressure that he has himself been compliant with for so long. Doing this would be the first step towards handing back our Party to the people that are funding it, that are now finding it increasingly difficult to keep it floating on the political ocean.
Griffin’s modus operandi
In the past, whenever Griffin wanted to purge a person from the Party that he thought may pose a future risk to him in some way, or had become too popular with the membership, the solution was simple for him. He would merely isolate the victim by concocting lies about them concerning financial ‘irregularities’ (somewhat ironically), aimed carefully at his victim before unleashing his attack-dogs to finish the job with personal attacks and slanderous gossip.
The black hole of amateurish gimmicks
In John’s case however, Griffin is going to attempt to move far more stealthily to get rid of him and quieten him up in the longer term. I can guarantee that there would have been plenty of prep-work to start with - buttering John up about how wonderful he is and what a great job he did, etc. How it is not fair for him to bear such a heavy load any longer and that his wonderful skills should now be used to fill this ‘new role’ that just happened to become available along with all the benefits that such a demanding new task would bring, etc. Nevertheless, Griffin knows that this alone would not give him the assurance that he seeks; this is only a short term solution to a long term predicament.
As we already know, it is Griffin who pulls all the strings and ‘balances’ the Party books, it is he alone that decides where our money is spent, and even if it is thrown into his black hole of amateurish gimmicks more akin to the activities of the Monster Raving Loony Party than a serious political alternative, no one is ever afforded the opportunity to find out exactly what such stunts cost us; the books are always cooked to a crisp and kept under lock and key.
A hatchet over our heads
As previously touched upon in other articles on this blog, one may be forgiven for wondering why the State allows such activities to continue under its nose. Whether the simple fact that it is so clearly obvious that our Party will never become an actual viable alternative while it is run by a crook, that makes it so attractive for the State to just sit back and monitor us, is definitely food for thought.
So, if the State wanted to, it could move dynamically against the Party’s curious funding appropriations, but instead it chooses to do nothing whatsoever; so what greater proof could there be that we are on the state ‘dangle’?
I believe that this will be one trapdoor that it will pull from underneath us only if it really needs to in the future.
Having such a hatchet hanging over our heads cannot and will not create for us the positive environment in which we need to grow.
The fact that Mr Walker’s signature would pop-up like a bad case of the measles, thus implicating him in any illegal activities should they be found during any thorough investigation, is still not enough to appease the paranoia of Mr Griffin. I believe that this new role that has been created by Griffin to sweeten and keep an eye on John will be a short lived one. As we speak, Griffin will be examining ways of ridding himself of him permanently. If the Advisory Council will be of no help then maybe a cry of ‘Who will rid me of this turbulent ex-treasurer!’ within earshot of the Security Tent at this year’s RWB may just do the trick? Who knows.
Over the last few months, many members and ex-members from various regions that had held different posts from activists through to regional organisers and councillors have been in contact with us. Many have expressed their despair at the financial situation within the Party. Many have commented that money is simply now the only driving factor behind Nick Griffin’s façade of modern British Nationalism.
One last point
If Mr Walker regards his freedom and self-preservation as of high importance, he had best follow Griffin’s grubby lead and orchestrate and prepare so that ‘Mutually Assured Destruction’ would be the outcome for them both should John feel the press of sharpened steel against his back in the not too distant future.
