The BNP Hypocrisy: Day 2

Following the obscene attempt to utilise the Race Relations Act, the BNP's true colours seem to have come to the fore.

From today's Liverpool Echo:

FAR-right activists were accused of “political intimidation” after encouraging neighbours to confront a prominent anti-racist campaigner on his doorstep.

About 20 members of the newly-formed Wirral British National Party dropped 2,500 leaflets in Wallasey, close to Merseyside Trade Union Congress leader Alec McFadden’s home.

The leaflets urged people to confront Mr McFadden at his home and the maildrop coincided with him fronting an anti-racism rally.

Mr McFadden said: “They knew I was leading the march, so they chose the moment to give these leaflets out, also knowing I am a single parent with two teenage daughters.”

Mr McFadden was stabbed in front of his daughter outside his home in May 2006.

A neo-Nazi website featured pictures of Mr McFadden and he received death threats.

The Merseyside BNP are proud of this action. On their pidgin English site they state:

  • For too long have the British people been pushed about and trodden on by the establishment and immigrant and it is about time we made a stand.
  • Instead of defending British Workers, he (McFadden) was today holding an anti-racism/anti-BNP march in Liverpool while workers were being made redundant.

It is crucial that their hijacking of the wildcat strikes happening at the moment is nipped in the bud.

UPDATE: The Mersey BNP have now scanned in a picture of the leaflet they posted to McFadden's neighbours. The leaflet publishes his address and telephone number and urges people to voice their opinion or pop round.
