The British National Party has released details of its leader’s speaking tour aimed at building support for the party’s effort in the English county council and unitary authority elections in May. The party says it is targeting regions of electoral interest to it and may be organising “various types of activism” during the day before an evening meeting.
The itinerary is below. Of particular note is that Griffin will be in Leicester on 9 February, the same day as the national launch meeting of his rival MEP Andrew Brons’s British Democratic Party also in the Leicester area. Look out for flying fur.
If you decide to phone the local organiser to express your concern at the racist party’s presence in your community, please be polite.
