JT was a genuine nationalist sure but he made no concessions to good practice or reality. He still wanted to advocate undiluted National Socialism in the 1990s. I have admiration for Tyndall. But I don't think he's exactly the gold standard.

Andrew Brons should've won that BNP leadership election in 2010. The BNP was terribly structured and developed into a Kleptocracy. Brons would've at least tried to turn it into a well-constituted and fair party. Then the leadership could've (hopefully) passed to someone with less baggage who could've taken it to the next level politically.

From what I understand it was the race riots of 2001 that put the BNP on the map and laid the foundations for their success in the north of England. It had very little to do with Griffin.

Griffin had Tyndall kicked out of his own party that he founded.

He also used BNP money to build an extension on to his house.

Griffin seemed to be driven more by money than patriotism.

If he was a real nationalist he wouldn't of kicked Tyndall out of his own party.

all the talk on this thread about political bigotry..

- street violence
- intimidation
- prejudice
- lack of respect for democracy
- censorship
- the financial support of shadowy backers
- de-platforming
- online bullying
- dirty tricks etc etc.


.....it sounds like half the Lefties across the Western World these days.

Tyndall was conspiring and nattering away. Griffin expelled him because he wasn't pulling together for the new leadership and direction. Which is ruthless but understandable.

Tyndall lost the NF leadership to John Kingsley Read in the 70s for two years and during that time he tried invading the NF HQ with grunts to try and Night of the Long Knives the Populists including Kingsley Read. In the end he managed to oust Kingsley Read and the Populists in an election because the membership hated him. But he very nearly lost his own Party membership in court because of his having attacked the office.

Griffin though was unscrupulous with party funds. But he's always been terrible with money. He inherited a large sum of ~£500,000 from his grandfather Edgar when he was in his mid- to late-20s and he blew it up with a matter of months on silly projects and stupid business deals. He's been bankrupt before and had to have his folks bail him out. He's terrible at handling money and he wastes it when it does come his way.

Tyndall was an arrogant so and so who wanted a club for the "pure"- which is fair enough however don't call your club a political party.

Nick Griffin used the last minute of the radio show to shill for Niall McConnell and the Irish Patriot.

I think Nick's a decent skin overall. Ideologically he was quite a fair man, he took a lot of cues in the 80s (alongside Derek Holland and Joe Pearce) from traditional Catholic social teaching while also the radical anti-imperialist movements of the world - which was a good way of developing Third Position thinking. Particularly in contrast to the crude racism of some of the NF types. Famously the NF activists in some branches in the country refused to sell the NF News edition which had a photo of Malcolm X on the front cover and the title "BLACK POWER!".

Griffin is a man with good intentions but he fell under Jim Dowson's negative influence. Dowson is a vampire who sucks organisations dry through crude fundraising tactics to personally enrich himself. He did it with the BNP and now British Nationalism as a cause is totally in the gutter. He is now doing it with Ireland through Niall and all these constant appeals for donations for these fraud projects which are not practically gained towards the salvation of Ireland but which sound good to the gullible. Niall is another guy with good intentions - although he's less astute than Griffin in fairness - but Jim Dowson's using him as a pawn in a pyramid scheme, vampiric money raising scam.
What evidence is there that Jim Dowson is behind Niall Mc Connell ? I know that he has been on his show.

Griffin wiped the floor with Paxman everytime he went on Newsnight. This was partly which made the BNP popular, the fact that there was finally a politician on TV saying what the British people were thinking

I really do wonder what the fuck is wrong people championing this Dolly Parton fan who I can remember laying a wreath for loyalist psycho George Seawright and lamenting Gaylord Billy Wright more than once. Cop on to yourselves. He’s an enemy of Ireland.
