Remembrance Day is a day for us to reflect on those friends, family and loved ones who paid the ultimate price in protecting us and keeping us safe from the perils that haunt this earth. A time to remember the sacrifices they made in our name and of the bravery it took to make those sacrifices.
We wear our poppy with pride, it is a symbol of our gratitude to those who died or suffered horrific injuries in carrying out their duties as our nations protectors, that pride is mirrored in our hearts when we see servicemen and women, past and present, march past the cenotaph with memories of lost or injured comrades.
It is not shameful to shed a tear when we think of those friends we will never see again, or to grieve at their passing, they were men and women of the highest order who I, for one, will never forget and they will live, eternally, within my heart.

I have posted a couple of pictures of how a group of Muslims demonstrated their views of our fallen heroes and I could follow it with my thoughts of them....but I wont. I will leave you to decide for yourselves why it is that we protect, house and feed these vermin.

The article in the Weekly News had a rather surprising twist to it; not only have friends and family rallied around me, complete strangers have stopped me in the street and said various things of support and encouragement, a couple of times people even said I was brave to be so open about what many others think but dare not say for fear of being branded in the way in which I have. I do not think of it as being brave, bravery is not saying what you believe to be the truth, real bravery is that shown by our lads on the front line.
Here, in North Wales, we are mainly protected from the influx of Muslim extremists, other parts of the Country are not. We had, recently, a case in Wrexham where a man was charged with racially aggravated language, he verbally abused two Muslims as they left a Mosque, if he is guilty, then fine, so be it, let the law run it's course but what is good for one should be good for another. The Muslims that attend rallies and spout mouthfuls of abuse about a country that cares for and feeds them, Muslims that call homecoming soldiers “Murderers” and “Baby Killers”, UK Muslim leaders who call for a boycott on Poppy Day should these, then not, be treated in the same fashion?
Is it so wrong to question these things; if a country lives in fear of what individuals may do, in the name of Islam, then should that religion not be questioned, if the members of that religion do not feel sickened by the atrocities carried out in the name of their religion should they not be questioned?
I am all for equality, but you cannot have it whilst one set of rules governing us is flaunted and spat on by others, no other religion in the UK, there are many, is shown the appeasement given to Islam, if we are to have equality then give us a level playing field in which to play upon.
Locally there are many more things for us to worry about other than religious fanatics but as time progresses, as it will, we too, like other parts of the UK, will see changes to our neighbourhoods that we do not like, will it then be too late to question what we should have questioned now? And is it so wrong not to be an ostrich?

As you can see it's been quite a few months since my last entry, mainly due to work and family commitments, so it came as a bit of a surprise yesterday when I received a phone call from the Weekly News informing me that they had had numerous complaints about my Blog and the fact that I am anti-Islamic, something I have never made a secret of.
The reporter went on and asked “Did I not think it wrong for a Councillor to have these views?”, well, no I don't. I explained everybody has a right to their opinions, the only thing difference is that I voice them and am not afraid of the name calling that usually follows.
He informed me that the complainants had said I was uneducated and ill informed and knew nothing about Islam or indeed Muslims; he was equally surprised when I told him that was not true and that I had lived amongst Muslims for several years in Africa and knew not only their religion but was probably more aware of their culture than most UK born Africans.
He questioned my right to say that, in my opinion, Islam is an archaic and wicked religion, which I certainly think it is, any religion that suppresses the basic human rights of it's followers is more akin to a cult than a religion. Any religion that seeks to assimilate other religions through acts of violence is wicked and vile and should be questioned at every opportunity.
The reporter went on to ask if I was racist or if I thought my comments were racist? I explained that Islam is not a race, it's a religion and that there are white Muslims as well as black ones and that I had left the BNP because race and religion are two different things, in my eyes, but not, necessarily with the BNP. This shocked him, not because of what I said but because I was ex-BNP, now come on, the Weekly News took so many pot-shots at me when I was in the Party it would be impossible for them not to know this, he didn't, which begs the question “where's the research before you start asking questions”.
The West's appeasement to Islam has been unbounded and we are now paying the price for our soft approach, other parts of Europe have had, are still having, problems with Muslim immigrants and they are now having to toughen their laws against them. France's banning of the abhorrent burka, the banning of full-body swim suits in Holland and the stopping of building minarets in Sweden are all signs that we have left it late in the day to stem the growth of Islam.
As I said to the reporter my argument is not with the individual Muslim as such, but you have to question their religion when it allows atrocities to happen that they will not condemn.
Religion, throughout history, has been to blame for nearly every major conflict we have had and I do not hold, personally, with any religion, there are good and bad in every religion and there are the extremists who push it way past reasoning and that is the problem with Islam... extremism.

There are plenty of people out their who agree with my views but, for whatever reason, never voice them, perhaps, in this ever increasing Politically Correct society I am a dinosaur but I have earned the right to speak as I find and reserve the right to do so, whatever my position in public life I am first and foremost an individual who has the right, for now, of freedom of speech.

Once you stop blogging for any period of time it is extremely difficult to get back into the swing of things. Work has kept me away not only from the blog but from most other things too, fortunately the contract is coming to an end which will mean I’ll have more time to spare and so enable me to get back to the blog. I have, of course, been active with Council matters and have kept an eye on other local blogs so I haven’t been completely dormant, honest.
I announced it on Oscar’s blog that I intend to stand in the By-election for Mostyn Ward and I will keep you fully informed of any progress regarding that. I also believe that during my absence there was a General Election, congratulations to David Jones on retaining his seat although I’m not too impressed by his Governors choice of bedfellows, it will all end in tears before bedtime.
I am now convinced that Victor is Craig or a very close, older, relative of his, it is only a shame that he cannot let bygones be bygones and enjoy his new life in Blackpool without all this muck-raking.
Jason Weyman is turning out to be the best County Councillor we have and I have to applaud his openness and honesty, something more experienced Councillors could and should learn from.
I will go into greater detail on all the above and more when I return in approx two weeks, for now I’ll sign-off again but I wont be far away!

I have it on good authority that Byron Davies has not been lifted in connection with some missing cannons or for living off immoral earnings (although the latter is still being looked into!)
Nor is it true that Byron is really Oscar, Ronnie Hughes in disguise or Carneades.
Shergar was mentioned but quickly dispelled and the Brink Mat robbers have denied knowing him, sale of the Great Orme to an oil-rich Sheik is totally unconnected, although two offers are on the table.
The drive-by shooting at Steve Hunt, David Jones MP and the Pier steering group is also thought to be the work of some deranged nutter but not this one as he was helping the police with their enquiries at the time of the alleged offence, on this point the police are focusing on an individual who was told-off for wearing his baseball cap in church during the Pier meeting and gave his name as Chameleon.
An officer at Wormwood Scrubs said the cleaning of Britain’s last remaining gallows was totally coincidental and had nothing to do with a Byron Davies, but he would check and get back to us later.
All in all the mystery deepens as someone claiming to be “Mrs Byron” was overheard offering sexual favours and a bung to police officers in return for “turning a blind-eye” and return of their passports and snowboards.
Like you and every other nosey bugger in Conwy I am in the dark on this one....... over to you Oscar.


At the moment local politicos avoid contact with me in case it evokes the kiss of death to their political careers; even long-term friends have said “No offence John but.....” so it came has a bit of a surprise when Councillor Mervyn Thomas came knocking at my door, at first I thought, wrongly, to offer me the position of Chairman, or at least vice-chair, of the local Conservatives Party (that evokes so many wicked thoughts!) but it was not to be, not even a membership offer which was, slightly, ego-deflating. Instead Mervyn wanted to discuss his proposals for affordable housing for local first-time buyers (what about the Secretary’s job?).
Mervyn has put forward a proposal that I blogged about months ago and one that I fully endorse. Locally first-time buyers are finding it harder and harder to get on the property ladder, housing costs and mortgages lenders being the main obstacle. Mervyn’s proposal is that the Council give away building land on a 999 lease, a sub-contractor, that he has sourced, builds 2 and 3 bed roomed houses that are then sold to local people only, the houses, costing between £70-80,000, come with certain restrictions attached, they cannot be sold for a number of years and if and when they are they can only be sold at a certain percentage of profit to other local people. There are other certain legalities attached that have to be thrashed out but, in principle, a very good idea that would be of immense benefit. Mervyn has promised to keep me in the loop with what happens to his proposal which he intends to see out to the very end, even if that means standing for another turn of office (that blows one of my predictions out of the water).
I shall, of course, keep you all informed of Mervyn’s progress,, about the Treasurer’s job.....?


The results of the Glyn Ward by-election were, to say the least, disappointing; not only because of the result but also that it shows there are still people in Colwyn Bay stupid and ignorant enough to vote for Labour. These are the same people who whinge and whine about the state of the Town, the County and the Country yet, like sheep, they continue to vote for the same old same old, when will they learn that change has to start at grass root level?
If we look at the results....

AUSTIN Martin (Independent) 26
BURROWS Margaret (Plaid) 121
FORECAST Keith (Lib Dems) 78
HUNT Steve (Independent) 62
PORTER Donald (Labour) 150
Trueman James (BNP) 35

The trend shows that the Political Parties took the main share of the votes, yet these are the parties that most of us complain about; pure and simple “Sheep voting”. At this level of local Government Independent candidates do not have to follow party lines and can, therefore, say and do what their constituents want and not what the party tells them, there is too much politics in local Government which is exactly what there shouldn’t be, it should be about what the people want and not what the political parties think they should have. Labour are the worst offenders and, for over a decade, have rammed down our throats their lies and sleaze, eroded our very way of life and led us into unprecedented debt YET 150 members of Glyn ward were pig-ignorant enough to go out and vote for it to continue, 150 Midland Bankers who deserve to feel totally ashamed of themselves for their utter stupidity. You really do have to think about the mentality of these tossers and it makes you wonder if they are really worth banging your head against a wall for.
The people of Glyn Ward had the chance to send a message to the “establishment” but they blew it, they rolled over like whipped dogs and said “come back and kick me some more, I like it”, what pathetic, foolish people they are to allow themselves to be deluded into thinking Labour will be any different than they have been already with their secrecy and deceit.
The next time a road is dug up in Colwyn Bay and replaced with grey waste land or a traffic warden gives you a ticket or you get mugged by a bunch of feral youngster whilst treading in dog shit stop for a minute and say “thank you” to the 150 ham-shankers in Glyn Ward who voted for it to continue.

I have replied to the article in the Weekly News about the cost of the repairs to Victoria Pier.

In response to your article regarding the repairs to Victoria Pier; the frequency in which the Council use the term “Commercially sensitive” appears to be on the ever increase, a new catchword, if you like, when they do not want to tell us what they are spending OUR money on. Openness, honesty and transparency are three words our Council, neglectfully, seem to have forgotten, replacing them with subterfuge, deceit and oblique.
Under the Building Act 1984 section 78 (Dangerous Structures) the Council can carry out the repairs require and then seek redress from the owners, in this case Royce Peeling Green of Manchester, here is the sub-section...

(3)Subject to this section, the local authority may recover from the owner the expenses reasonably incurred by them under this section.

Surely then Councillor Chris Hughes is wrong when he suggests that the tax-payer will have to foot the bill, the legal onus being on RPG, they were eager enough to take responsibility for the Pier when they thought they could make money out of it, claiming they have no money for the repairs is, as Mr Hunt found out, no excuse. The Council was quick off the mark in making a dubious bankruptcy case against Mr Hunt, for a few thousand pounds will we now see them do the right thing and bring bankruptcy proceedings against those legally responsible or, as I expect, cop-out and hope that nobody notices, perhaps too Commercially sensitive for their liking.

In today’s Daily Post Steve Bagnall writes about a “Sick” anti-muslim web-site condemning the building of a super-mosque in Wrexham. I have not seen the web-site nor do I intend to, but Steve Bagnall’s branding of “sick” just because a site is anti-muslim I find excessive.
I come under frequent attacks because I am anti muslim, I think Islam is an archaic, barbaric and dangerous religion that has no place in a modern world, I have felt this since witnessing some of the worst atrocities carried out in Africa by muslims on their own people.
I have continually warned that, in my opinion, Islamic idealists will seek to undermine the very structure of our society, in third world countries, the home of Islam, the basis of survival is corruption and we see that being brought into play here, now, in the UK. Muslim politicians use any method at their disposal to get elected, the postal voting system is a God-send to them, the Channel 4 programme Dispatches showed how Islam is infiltrating the very core of our political fabric and using it to influence political decisions.
The appeasement shown to this vile religion is unprecedented in comparison to the many faiths that occupy our tiny island, Councils ban Christian literature because it may offend them, they re-name Christmas events because it may offend them and we must walk on egg shells in case we offend them WHAT ABOUT US BEING OFFENDED?
If, for one moment, we put the boot on the other foot, how long would a Christian Church last in down-town Islamabad, what would happen to the proprietors of a pork-pie shop in Karachi and how many atrocities have been carried out against Christian missionaries throughout the muslim world, one law for them and another for us.
I have been harping on about this for decades and withstood the barrage of name-calling, verbal and physical attacks, threats and innuendoes. I do not consider myself a racist, nor do my many coloured friends, I do not decry any man or woman coming to this Country to better themselves or their families, anybody would try to do that. If you come to the UK you must accept it as it is and not try to change it for your own dangerous agenda, if you do not like our system then go back to the one that you do, we are not and never will be a muslim state and the harder they push for it to be the greater the intolerance will be.
I believe that many more people are starting to realise what I have said over the years is, was and always will be the truth, the only difference is that now more people are prepared to put their head above the parapet and actually say it and face those that immediately brand them as racists for pointing out those truths. The Government backed Searchlight and the UAF have long been proven to be left-wing anarchists so their opinion counts for nothing and the sooner they are made an illegal organisation the better.
As for Steve Bagnall; well, the sooner he starts to live in the real world he will realise who and what is really “Sick

In Clwyd West and Aberconwy both UKIP and the BNP are out of the running for the General election. In both places the BNP cannot afford to stand a candidate due to lack of money and in Aberconwy, as predicted, UKIP will not be standing through lack of interest. The UKIP candidate they had has had to stand down for personal reasons, which I fully understand, but for a political party to be unable to find a candidate speaks volumes for the local leadership or distinct lack of it in this case.
Despite my continual blogging on the matter the local UKIP still hold their meetings in a church hall, preaching to the converted month in, month out. The people and the members have lost interest in them, there is no fire in their bellies, the flame of hope has flickered out and the spark of life has died, for what good they are now they may as well pack it in, go home, have a re-think and come back again in 3 or 4 years time, their contribution, locally has been pathetic, a total waste of all the good member’s time and effort.
Our local UKIP candidate will be Warwick Nicholson and I would have liked to have voted for him but I cannot, not only is he the UKIP Chairman for Wales he is also the local Chairman too, if his organisational skills, leadership and choice of Officers locally is anything to go by then I’m afraid he is not up to the job, he is the one that dithered about for three months on whether I could attend a meeting or not, granted he was badly advised by Kevin Mahoney but that is not the point, if he is as indecisive as that on a minor problem what would he be like in Westminster?
Everyone I speak to is against being in the EU and UKIP are our best chance of getting out of it but until they can pull their socks up and learn to tie their shoe laces I’m afraid they are going nowhere and we are stuck with the LibLabConmen.
Never mind, there is always retirement to look forward to and the thought of a villa in some warm and distant country watching on as Britain sinks deeper into the smelly stuff.

UPDATE: It turns out that UKIP have got a candidate for Aberconwy his name is Mike Wieteska, I believe he is from a small village on the other side of Caernarfon although he used to live in Australia. To my knowledge he was one of the founder members of UKIP and is a devout Christian.
This, at least, gives the voters in Aberconwy an alternative to the mainstream parties and any of you who, like me, are vehemently opposed to the EU may want to take a look at him, I wish him well.

5 shop windows broken in Seaview Road, the same thing last year and the year before that in Abergele Road, the shopkeepers have a never ending battle with drunks, yobs and total idiots yet we, the Council, take away the right for them to defend themselves.
They are not allowed to install shutters because they are in a conservation area; what a load of bollocks, this is Colwyn Bay, Councillor Chris Hughes is on record as having said “Colwyn Bay is dead as far as tourism is concerned” Referred to by one Councillor as being like Beirut and another said it was occupied by the Benefit under classes; is this what we are conserving?
When are the Council going to see sense and do something to help these shopkeepers, they are quick enough to demand Business rates from them and bankrupt them if they cannot pay, they have turned Station Road into a bland, featureless expanse of grey, they are soon to do the same to Penrhyn Road, if anything they are the biggest vandals and idiots we have.
Common sense should dictate what is required not some bureaucratic title shoved on us by people with less sense than a plank, it is the shopkeepers who have to front up the cash when this happens not them and not the Council, they know what they need to protect their businesses, for God’s sake give it to them and stop hiding behind poxy red-tape.

LIB........ WHO?

I’m not a great admirer of the Lib Dems, by the mere membership of the party an individual gives off the impression that he/she doesn’t mind coming second or third, not a party of winners, if you see what I mean. Couple that with the fact that most of them are strong on Political Correctness and left-wing action groups has the effect of turning one’s stomach and evoking a feeling of nausea. The support give by them to UAF (Unite Against Fascism) is another worrying factor, by their actions they are, in fact, supporting anarchy and endorsing the use of violence as a means of protest.
It came as no surprise then when I read that our Lib Dem candidate Michele Jones, who has only been in the party for a year, was put forward as the candidate after completing an initiative called “Women in Public Life”.
She will also be fully aware of the problems we are experiencing here in Colwyn Bay, being locally located in Flint, she will be fully versed on our drug issues and will certainly have her finger on the pulse of our anti-social elements, as she is also no stranger to throwing her dolly out of the pram when she cannot get her own way. Here.
It appears the Lib Dems are so well versed in losing that they can no longer be bothered to field viable candidates, not to worry I’m sure there will be another initiative along in a minute or so!

The trial of Geert Wilders has now been adjourned to a date to be fixed, the date being fixed by the Court!
This trial, although being held in Holland, has far greater effects on the rest of Europe than may first be realised. This is actually a trial against free-speech. Whether you agree with what Mr Wilders says or not, for the record I do, is not the issue, it is his entitlement to say it that is on trial.
He has had 15 of his 18 witnesses disallowed and the Court’s reason for that is incredible “The Court accepts what your witnesses will say is the truth..... But the truth itself is wrong”. How can the truth be wrong? What they mean to say is “Yes; everything you say about Islam is correct but we (the authorities) do not want everyone to know it”.
The roads outside the Court are packed with members of the public supporting Mr Wilders, Holland has a General Election looming, the Court have done everything in their power to gag Mr Wilders and his witnesses and now the “Establishment” are panicking because they know they have overstepped the mark and this could just push the election Mr Wilders way.
A very good piece on the trial can be viewed here

Utter embarrassment and a strategic re-think in the local Conservative Party following Hazel Meredith’s victory over the Lyon clan. Hazel won her appeal at the Conservative HQ in London, it was thought by the local grandees, that Hazel would just let the matter drop but to their horror and amazement Hazel took it all the way and gave them a good spanking.
I have been told, by sources within the party, that Chris Lyon is contemplating resigning and is deeply angry at the decision which forces a total re-think of their election plans and candidates. Hazel, who stands to be Mayor next term, can hardly now be stood down as the Rhiw candidate, squashing the idea that Chris and Lyn could both stand in the safe seat. This will, I am told, also force a re-think on Ma Lyon standing in Rhos and she could be forced, against her wishes, to stand elsewhere, once again, I am told that Deganwy has been mentioned.
All in all it’s not looking too good for the Conservatives, after the result of the appeal Merfyn Thomas re-affirmed his decision to stand-down at the next election and is considering his options, the in-fighting continues and, I believe, Hazel has been removed from the Lyons Christmas card list. On the plus side my mate Chameleon will be highly delighted, he was loathing the thought of Ma Lyon being his local Councillor!.

The Weekly News and Insp Ahari must be a little red-faced this evening following the report that Colwyn Bay is one of the safest places in Britain...
To-day we had an armed robbery of a tobacconist in Abergele Road with the two thieves carrying what was described as “Knives or Machetes”. The two then made off and hid in a flat in Lawson/Belgrade Road, followed by a siege with armed police and the entire area cordoned off, with the police helicopter flying overhead the two were, obviously, going nowhere.
They eventually surrendered and were taken away but the armed police later returned with a convoy of other police vehicles and re-entered the property, to what ends we will have to wait and find out.
The police and Government are very good at manipulating figures to suit themselves, today was a prime example of that, the people who live in Colwyn Bay and those of us that are part of the real world already know that we will never be totally safe but it would be nice if, just for once, the authorities were honest with us and told us the real facts.

As yet I have had nothing to say that was detrimental to Plaid, that was until I found out that Plaid have used me to attack David Jones MP, they have linked our joint concerns for the Pier, my previous membership of the BNP and David’s use of “Voices of Colwyn Bay” as one of the headings on his blog. A very, very tenuous link from the one policy party I agree but it shows their desperation.
Plaid Wrecsam and Syniadau both carried the story, the latter having a personal twist to it because the author and I frequently locked horns on the Wales on line forum. Once again they try to associate me as still being in the BNP, what more I can to do to prove this a lie I do not know, I freely admit there are some aspects of the BNP I agree with but there are others I am not. I am a firm believer that the biggest terrorist threat to our national security comes from Muslims already living here; I also believe that Islam is a wicked, oppressive and dangerous religion. I honestly believe these things and will not change my mind about that regardless of the arguments put forward by MH, the author of Syniadau.
Plaids call for an independent Wales is probably going to happen but not for many years, we already know the shambolic performance of the Welsh Assembly under Labour/Plaid leadership, they have proved, beyond doubt that they are incapable of leading a donkey never mind a Country. Plaid are proud people, in a country and heritage to be proud of but they lack the core values of leadership and the people to lead them.
If the best they can do is play dirty tricks and enter into mud slinging matches then it only goes to prove the point I am trying to make. Once they have matured, thought out their policies and risen above church hall action group status then they may enter the arena but, until that time, they really do need to get their act together.


I am looking for guidance in some research I am doing; approximately three years or four years ago I read in the newspapers of a young child who was killed whilst playing around a derelict house, I believe it was Liverpool, Manchester or some northern Town/City.
The outcome of it was that the Local Council and its Chief Executive were taken to Court and found guilty of manslaughter by neglect, the neglect being that they did not safeguard the property after numerous complaints, thereby allowing the child access to a dangerous structure and so, by neglect, caused his/her death.
I am trying to find out under what law they were charged and any links to the case or precedents that were set. I know that, to now, nobody has died or been injured by the neglect of the Pier but, in my opinion, it is only a matter of time until such a tragedy will occur.
The complaints I sent to the Ombudsman had little effect, the Council did a very small amount of remedial work and that was it, they failed to remove the danger to the public. I am having the Pier independently inspected and have engaged a photographer to record the condition of the rapid decline of the Pier’s sub-structure once that is done I intend to present the evidence to the Police and report the Council for gross negligence likely to cause death, an offence under British law. I believe this fiasco as gone on for too long now and it is time that someone was brought to account, they are playing with the lives of anyone, young or old, who has the misfortune to venture near to the Pier.
Any assistance you can give me in this will be most appreciated and all information will be treated in the strictest of confidence.

I have reproduced, below, the surveyor’s recommendations; the Council cannot say that they were unaware of the danger to the public, they are, therefore, negligent as to the safety of the said public.
The full report and estimated costing can be read

8.0 Recommendations
8.1 An inspection and assessment of the pier structure should be
undertaken, if necessary on a sample basis, to gain a more accurate
view of its form and condition.
8.2 A Cost Plan should be prepared from the findings of the Structural
8.3 The public should be excluded from beneath or at least warned of the
dangerous nature of parts of the Pier. The unsafe areas should be
secured as matter of urgency.

St David’s RC Primary School

Trawling through the other local blogs I came across an article on the Llandudno and Colwyn Bay Local entitled “They did make love to this Employment”, which I believe is a line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet
It was not the article itself that caught my attention but the responses to it. At first glance the article, as I say, is not that noticeable and was picked up from one of the local papers but Carneades, author of the blog, did his usual, in-depth analysis of the story regarding a head teacher dismissed from St David’s RC Primary School,putting his own, unique slant to it, nothing new there then. Suddenly poor Carneades is attacked and ridiculed by what can only be other teachers, parents or others associated with the school, they, obviously, do not want further publicity, preferring to sweep it under the carpet and, hopefully, pretend it never happened. The big question is why? What is there behind this story that would trigger such a response from those concerned, some dark and tainted secret perhaps?
If there is anyone with further information about this story, sordid or otherwise, then it may quench my thirst for answers, for once... even I’m baffled.


The Local Development Plan (LDP) that is being forced upon us is, of course, very worrying; 6,500 to 9,000 new homes will have to be created to fulfil the requirements placed upon us. Arguments still continue about “Projections”, “Initial Reports” and “Forecasts” but if we cut through all the hype and jargon the reality is we are being forced to increase the size of our communities whether we like it or not.
Continued, uncapped, immigration into the UK means there is a monumental housing shortage, this shortage has to be met, so these houses have to be built somewhere, regardless of who eventually occupies them, we, for the first time, are now starting to see why I am so opposed to this unchecked immigration.
My argument is not with the immigrant, he/she is only trying to better their way of life for themselves and their families, my argument is with the people that are allowing it to happen and will continue to let it happen if they are re-elected, Labour.
We, here in North Wales, have been extremely lucky so far as immigration is concerned; the worst that has happened has been the arrival of families from major UK cities who, themselves, have sought refuge from the take-over of those cities by immigrants.
If we now look at the LDP and the underlying issues that it raises we may get a better insight as to why those families came here from the major cities. 9,000 homes mean 9,000 families with all the wants and needs of any family, employment, education, medical care and transportation. At the moment we are struggling locally with employment so a further 18-20,000 job seekers is going to be a nightmare and will lead to further unemployment and a drain on our Social Services. Queues and waiting times at our hospitals will increase dramatically as will the need for specialist medical care, requirement of GPs and Dentists, how easy is it now to get a NHS dentist!
Education and transportation speak for themselves, we all know what it’s like trying to get through Colwyn Bay at school start and finish times already, imagine another 18-27,000 kids being picked-up and dropped off.
This LDP is going to change the quality of our life, whether we like it or not, it will change, forever, the landscape surrounding us, the employment we attend, the infrastructure we have grown accustomed to and yet it will not end there; as the increase in immigration rises so to will the need for more and more housing, we are only just starting to see the tip of the iceberg created for us by Labour, now that the demands have started it will not be long before those demands increase, our Labour led Council are only too happy to follow their party line and allow this to happen. The only way to stop it is to stop the Labour lie machine in its tracks, the time of lying and deceit must end now, truth, honesty and openness are but words to Labour but they are words we must make them eat; by voting them out at any opportunity we get we can show them we are sick of the abuse they have subjected us to.

I don’t know whether to chuckle, giggle or laugh at the plain stupidity of some people. It is not long ago that I mentioned, on this blog, that I was expecting some sort of smear campaign against me from certain quarters. What I didn’t realise, at the time, was how amateurish it would be. I received a phone call this morning asking me if I’d heard the latest rumour about me, the caller went on to explain that I was still in the BNP, I attended an anti-Islamic demo in Wrexham and that it was me who called this by-election on behalf of the BNP and I also arranged and attended the BNP meeting in our Town Hall. (what a busy chappie I must be!)
During the latter part of my Army career I was involved in “Intelligence” we not only gathered it we also spread it, not the true facts of course but true enough that it contained enough credible facts to be believable and so confuse and incite reaction within the enemy’s ranks, counter intelligence.
If this pathetic attempt at a smear is the best they can do then I have no worries because, if I so desired, I could shoot all of it down in flames but I will not give the politicos or their lackies the satisfaction of that response, I will leave it to the people to decide if I would be that stupid or not.
If someone has an allegation about me then, by all means, come to me and say it to me man to man, don’t play school yard whispers, have the conviction to stand up and be counted but, more to the point, be like me and make sure you have the proof behind you before making your accusations.


It may come as a surprise to some of you but I do have a few “friends” who work for the Council in various positions throughout its long, laborious network and they quite often and openly tell me of their concerns about internal issues.
I am often told of staff being promoted beyond their capabilities, lazy colleagues or unnecessary usage of overtime for menial tasks. One common cause of complaint is “Non-jobs”, positions created when there is no real need for it, these involve managerial staff going from one meeting to another all day long and yet achieving nothing, “talking-shops” as you and I would call them.
These non-jobs are given impressive titles like “Social Cohesion”, “Racial Awareness” or “Strategy Reorganisation” impressive titles certainly but, in reality are a lot of talk about nothing and cost us, the tax payer, hundreds of thousands of pounds annually.
At a time when our Council are trying to save money perhaps they should be a bit more inward looking; if these mini-quangos are as useless as I am led to believe, and I do not doubt that they are, then it may well be time to start trimming the Council’s middle management workforce, if the Council was run more like a business, instead of a money-pit, then these people would have been out on their ear long ago. The attitude of “Well; its not our money we’re wasting” has to stop, get out the pruning shears and start trimming.

It is interesting to see how political parties close ranks when there is an election looming, how they try to keep things quiet until the last moment and then spring the candidate on us as if he/she will be the great saviour of our crumbling society. It appears to be the same locally, although locally we have a better insight into the minds of our politicos. It is, by now, no secret that the local Conservatives are having a hard time keeping their act together amidst in-fighting, resignations and expulsions.
With the BNP having called for a by-election in the Glyn Ward the Conservatives turned to a long serving member of the party to be their candidate, having considered how he was stabbed in the back at the last by-election, in which he was replaced by Lyn Lyon, he promptly and politely told them to get stuffed.
What will their next move be? If you remember back in November I predicted that Margaret Lyons would move from Llandudno and stand in Rhos Ward at the next Council election, I also said that the Conservatives would get rid of a long standing Conservative from Rhiw Ward, which they have by expelling Hazel Meredith, and replace them with the other two Lyons, Lyn and Phil, which they will. So it will come as no surprise to see Phil Lyons as their new candidate for the Town Council by-election, this gives him time to get his feet under the table and his picture in the paper prior to the County Council elections due in eighteen months or so.
Rhos and Rhiw wards are strong Conservative seats and are almost certain walk-ins for the Lyon family but it would be something of a set-back should both Liebour and the Conservatives come behind the BNP at this by-election, there are also three other candidates, to date, to deal with, one of them being Steve Hunt, the owner of the Pier, should public support be behind him and against the establishment then he, too, has a chance of winning.
Public feeling, at the moment, is against mainstream political parties, especially the lying and deceitful Labourites, so, one wonders could this by-election be another nail in the Conservative’s coffin? If they lose to the BNP it most certainly will be but a more worrying aspect would be if it affects Phil’s County Council chances. Both he and Lyn have one other problem that the Conservatives have not considered, they may have got rid of Hazel to make way for the couple but they haven’t taken into account Hazel’s tenacity, I predict she will stand as an Independent and beat one of them, now that will be one in the eye for the Lyons.


The fox is well and truly in the chicken coop, feathers flying everywhere and the odd headless one running around clueless. I am, of course, talking about the local Conservatives. What a disastrous few days they’ve just had.
First problem was their candidate for the forthcoming Town Council By-election gives back-word and won’t be standing, which left them in the awkward position of not being able to contest the BNP in an election that the BNP called for. Poor Merfyn Thomas came under pressure to find a new candidate but even that got put on the back burner after the truculent Dennis Tew announced first his resignation from the Conservatives then his joining of Plaid.
Now it has to be said, the Conservatives should have been ready for this, for some time now the Conservatives were getting a bit peeved with some of Dennis’s behaviour and his name was mentioned at more than one meeting, in their opinion Dennis was getting off at the stop above his station. They, themselves, elevated him so they only have themselves to blame but the real kick in the nuts was his endorsement of Plaid’s Phil Edwards, that hurt them more than they care to admit. No names, no pack drill, one senior Tory was heard to say, in her shrill voice, “He was voted onto the Council as a Conservative; he should step-down and have a by-election called”. Well, I’m afraid, that isn’t going to happen my love, Dennis is well ensconced in his role as “Councillor Tew” and, of course, those extra pennies each month are what he’s there for.
There will now be a bit of shifting around of committee members, just to keep the balance of blame proportionate and the Tories will be sharpening their claws but, at the end of the day, nothing will really change; we will still have a Council that is defunct, deceitful and as much use as a chocolate fireguard. The only real winners are Liebour who, for once, are not the brunt of the joke.

News just in from “Spy HQ”: There is now great indecision in the Tory camp, consideration has been given that Margaret Lyons should stand in Deganwy at the next Council election but she is adamant that she wants to stand in Rhos. Perhaps it’s not all over yet, there may well be another battle of the wills to be fought!

I am probably the last of the local Bloggers to report on the Public Meeting regarding the Pier, unfortunately work kept me away from the keyboard until now; however, my report comes from a totally different perspective than the others considering I couldn’t get in!
I arrived quite early, accompanied by Steve Hunt, I was quite surprised to see the place already busy, by the time I’d gone through a few pleasantries with people and acquaintances people were crowding in and I had to direct them to sit where they could.
By the time we reached the 150 mark I was asked to inform the people outside that we were full, struggling against those trying to get in I made it to the Town Hall steps and was greeted by approx 250-300 people queuing to still get in!
We managed to squeeze in a few more but in the end I had to turn away approx 200 people, calls for a photographer were answered and the press came outside to take pictures of those unlucky enough not to have gotten in, I heard demands for another meeting in a bigger venue, calls for Councillors to resign and I was even called “Scum” when asked if I was a Councillor! (A lady with the gentleman quickly pointed out and said “No! He’s one of the good ones” to which the gentleman apologised and followed it with”But they are Scum”)
By the time I’d turned people away you could not move inside the Town Hall and trying to get back into the chamber was a complete waste of time. Instead I fielded questions and complaints from those left in the hallways.
Feedback was fantastic, everyone has their concerns and this was more than evident in some of the questions poised. It wasn’t a Chris Hughes witch-hunt and, hats-off, he did attend as did quite a few other County Councillors. I was pleased to see “Oscar” in the crowd along with other local Bloggers.
I had a very informative chat with Councillor Stuart Anderson regarding our mutual interest in an off-shore lagoon but I won’t bore you with the details.
Suffice is to say it was an excellent result, it all hinges now on whether CCBC listen to what the people had to say. It is not too difficult for them to bite the bullet and sit down and talk....... is it?

Hi John, could I ask you to please publish the following on your blog - as I know many people from the bay read it who do are probably not on the pier mailing list:

Please pass on my thanks to everyone who made the effort to attend the meeting, particularly those who couldn't get in. I thougth a lot would turn out, but even I was astonished when I went outside to see people had filled the road.

I'm sorry I didn't get to talk to more of you personally, especially of course those who had travelled some distance.

I did have a lovely chat with the lady who had come all the way from Huddersfield! - who was delighted to have met up with a childhood friend from the bay at the meeting who she hadn't seen for many years!

It has at time felt like a bit of a lonely battle over the past few years, but now I am re-invigorated due to the overwhelming support of people as passionate about the pier as I have always been.

I hope this massive momentum will now be put to good use, and pressure piled on CCBC to TALK TO ME (or even my lawyers!) so we can resolve the legal issues and get back on with the job of trying to do something with the Pier.

Please everyone do your bit to lobby your Councillor, and even better still the Local Government Ombudsman for Wales whose details are at

If anyone would like to keep updated directly, please join the mailing list on the pier website at

Lastly, it would be very remiss of me not to thank David Jones MP for all the time he has spent on this issue over the past couple of years, and to the Newspapers, Radio and TV for doing their best to keep the public informed under such tight reporting restrictions.

Keep it up - CCBC cannot possibly ignore the people who pay their wages any longer.

Thanks one and all,

Steve Hunt.

It appears that my announcement in regards to the BNP calling a by-election has caused a few feathers to be ruffled.
Word has it that any Labour candidate put forward will be viewed has having links to Labours Chris Hughes and will therefore be viewed with suspicion. The prospective Conservative candidate has now decided not to stand and has pulled out. Plaid, as yet, hasn’t got a candidate and the BNP are already busy canvassing.
Labour have a tough decision to make, dump Chris Hughes and retain credibility or keep him on and risk losing to the BNP, their third option is; not to stand a candidate in a Labour stronghold, this would be viewed as capitulating to the BNP and bring them in for extremely strong criticism from all parties, including their own. I, almost, feel sorry for them, not really, they made a rod for their own backs by allowing Chris Hughes to continue in the way that he has so now they must pay the consequences.
The Conservatives can, at least, fall back on the old story of it being Labour’s responsibility but that is old news and will no longer wash, I believe JFS will be having a strong word with Merfyn Thomas to find a new candidate and quick!
Plaid; being Plaid, they will wait patiently until asked and then say “By-election, what by-election?”


It pleases me to see that there are other people who do not agree with our co-option process of new Councillors. The vacancy on Colwyn Bay Town Council will now be decided by a costly By-election and not by the normal co-option process.
The election has been called by the BNP; their candidate, James Trueman, told me that he felt it was the only way that democracy stood a chance against the system of co-option now adopted by the Town Council, currently any candidate must have 51% of the vote to win as opposed to the old “First past the post” system, which I wanted to keep but was out-voted.
As James said; “The system you have now favours those with friends or political allies already on the Council, people like me wouldn’t stand a chance unless we go to the trouble of calling a by-election”
I agree with him, our current voting process is flawed and because of that we now have to go to the very expensive process of a By-election. It is not the BNP or James Trueman that is to blame for this expense but the short sightedness of Councillors, by voting for this undemocratic process we opened the gates for complaints, we called the tune; we must now pay the piper.
The BNP’s actions will now cause a flurry of activity from the other major parties who will try to keep the BNP out, thus causing them headaches that could otherwise have been avoided had they not tried to be clever in changing our co-option process.
Me; I’m going to sit back and watch the likes of our Labour Councillors run around like headless chickens trying to find a candidate whilst decrying the BNP as a Racist, Fascist Party who have no place in our politics, then, at the end of it all, I’m going to vote for James who I know is a honest and decent person.
Stuff ‘em!


Printed below is a copy of a letter sent to me by Steve Hunt.
I’m not sure where he gets his information from, neither, apparently, are CCBC but if concerned Councillors are spilling the beans on the “QT” it is a sure sign that all is not well in the Fun Factory known as Bodlondeb!
I understand my name has been banded about as the culprit but how can that be?......... I was told I couldn’t attend, so how would I know, I didn’t even get the right room (I believe it was being swept for bugs!)

PUBLIC MEETING ABOUT VICTORIA PIER - this Friday 22nd January, 6.00pm Town Hall, Rhiw Road, Colwyn Bay

Just a reminder about the meeting, I hope as many of you as possible will come along and show your support - please spread the word! It is not every day an MP calls a meeting like this, and it has caused ructions at the Corrupt Conwy County Borough Council! (CCBC)

CCBC has BANNED any of its members attending in an official capacity, and if any of them want to turn up as members of the public, they have been TOLD they must not answer any questions - nice to see democracy in action isn't it?

This morning, CCBC held a special, secret, emergency meeting to discuss me and the Pier. After I threatened to gate-crash the meeting, the room it was held in at CCBC headquarters was changed at the last minute! - Bless 'em.

Anyway, the main topic of conversation from County Councillors Brian Cossey, Abdul Khan (who is also Mayor of Colwyn Bay) and Chris Hughes (who is supposedly Chairman of "Friends of the Pier") was how news of this top secret meeting had leaked out!... they got their knickers in rather a twist over this, and have now demanded an enquiry into the "leak" - remember dear taxpayer, all this nonsense is where YOUR council tax money is going...

Interestingly, CCBC claimed to know nothing about the various offers I'd made over time to find a resolution to the problems surrounding the pier. It was pointed out that I had made an offer, in writing, to the LEADER of CCBC for him to send a delegation of himself and the appropriate officers to the Pier to see what work had been done, what was needed, and how myself and CCBC might work together for the good of the Pier. A copy of an internal memo in which the Council leader's response to my offer was stated as being "not worthy of any response" was also made available to the assembled Councillors... Council lies shown up yet again - I HAVE always been open to any discussion, however, certain Councillors like Chris Hughes have done their best to paint a very different picture of me over the past 6 years.

Interestingly, the discussion after this revelation was not "Oh, so Mr Hunt is more than willing to chat about the pier then, let's set up a meeting..." NO, instead yet more questions were asked on how on earth the person who revealed my offer, and a copy of the Councils internal memo, had come into posession of these documents... You see, the Council do not give a damn about the pier, and never have done... all they care about is their own filthy dirty secrets, and keeping them secret!

I can assure you of this: If they are worried about that one memo, they are going to have an awful lot more sleepless nights in the coming weeks...


On Friday night, I shall be publicly naming and shaming a number of Council Officers / Councillors all involved in the utter scandal surrounding the completely illegal bankrupting of myself. The offences committed by these scumbags include FRAUD, PERJURY and PERVERTING THE COURSE OF JUSTICE. I have full details of how someone at CCBC CHANGED COMPUTER RECORDS TO CONCEAL MONEY, and how in actual fact CCBC owe ME money! Details of how CCBC knowingly LIED to the Courts all the way through legal proceedings against me, even instructing their lawyers to make FALSE written statements to the Judge!

Naturally, CCBC will be free, indeed challenged, to sue me for Slander / Libel if they want to allege what I say isn't true... after all, they seem to just love taking me to Court... BUT as I am only quoting from their OWN documents, internal memos, emails and computer records, I think they might just have a little bit of a problem when they get into a courtroom, don't you?

Friends of the Pier, and the TRUTH about Cllr Chris Hughes

I will also be asking all those interested to consider the resurrection of the "Friends of the Pier" charitable group, whose first mission will be to get rid of Cllr Chris Hughes, who alleges he still has authority as Chairman of this group.

Let me make a few facts very clear about Cllr Hughes:

He has REFUSED to call a meeting of the Friends of the Pier in over 3 years.
He has REFUSED to resign as Chairman.
He REFUSES to sign any cheques, thereby rendering the funds held in the Friends bank account worthless.
The other member called a meeting when he wouldn't, and voted him out as Chairman... He turned up at the meeting, declared it unconstitutional as he had not called it in his capacity as Chairman, and REFUSED yet again to resign. At that meeting (nearly a year ago now) he stated he would call a "proper AGM" where his chairmanship could be discussed, but surprise, surprise, he REFUSES to call any such meeting, knowing he will get voted out!
He REFUSES to respond to letters from the Secretary of the Friends sent to his house by recorded delivery.
He REFUSES to respond to letters sent to his official Councillor address at CCBC's Headquarters by recorded delivery.
AND YET... even at this mornings meeting, he was still bleating on about how much good HE has done for the Pier! - how he has the nerve is quite beyond my, or anyone else's, comprehension.

I can't wait to see if he has the nerve to turn up at the meeting on Friday! - there are a lot of very, very passionate people just waiting to ask him questions...

The Way Forward...

The purpose of Fridays meeting is officially to gauge the level of public support for regenerating the Pier, and to discuss what ideas people have for the kinds of things they would like to see on it.

As anyone who regularly visits the prom will know, the Pier is suffering badly from the 18 months of wilful neglect by the people who are currently, technically, the legal owners IE the Insolvency Practitioners. They have been warned numerous times by myself and my Lawyers that the pier is now dangerous in several places, but they do nothing about it. Is this all part of some cunning plan designed to allow the Pier to fall into such a bad way that demolition is considered?

In the recent big press articles in all the local papers, much prominence has been given to the idea of "demolition" - as if someone is trying to direct public opinion in that direction - and although I have been interviewed by every newspaper, there is hardly a line of quotation from me about anything - quite simply the Editors are under "pressure", shall we say, NOT to publish anything bad against CCBC in relation to the Pier.

Now, what the papers keep failing to mention is that the Pier CANNOT be demolished - it is a Grade II Listed Building!! - We don't go around demolishing old Castles just because they have holes in the walls do we?!

There have been a few good suggestions floating about of ways to help fund restoration of the Pier, which is what SHOULD be being discussed. These include building a hotel on it, a casino, cinema, bowling alleys etc. CCBC have had discussions about the availability of funding from the Welsh Assembly, but chose to keep all that secret from me and the people of Colwyn Bay.

It has been suggested that nPower should invest money into the Pier as "compensation" for ruining the coastline with all their electricity generating windmills, and then they could have some kind of information centre on the pier about the windmills. nPower have been approached directly about this, and are open to discussing the idea further... The thing is, if CCBC had a single brain-cell between them, they could have made investing in the pier a condition of planning permission for building the windmills in the first place! - this kind of arrangement is commonly used when, for example, Asda build a new primary school classroom in exchange for being allowed to build a supermarket etc. It is commonly known as a "Section 106 Planning Agreement".

ITV Wales Thursday...

I'm being interviewed Thursday morning, so keep your eye open on the ITV News bulletins throughout the day / evening... What I will say about the Corrupt Council, and what ITV will dare to actually broadcast remains to be seen!

Anyway... I could rabbit on for hours, but won't bore you any further.

Please do you best to show your support in person on Friday night - and tell as many people as you can - we want to pack out the Town Hall to standing room only!

If you do blogging or twittering or facebooking or any of those kinda things, let people know!

See you there!

A week from today and we have the Public Meeting in regards to the Pier, David Jones, who is chairing the meeting, would like the people thinking of attending to let his office know, it’s a local number..... 01492 535845.
CCBC, the people most likely to benefit from this meeting have not yet, officially, declared whether they will attend or not, unofficially you can bet your bottom dollar it’s the later, whenever have CCBC been interested in what the people of Colwyn Bay have had to say?
They are, however, holding their own, by invitation only, meeting on Wednesday 22nd January at 8.30am in the Medium meeting room at Bodlondeb. The meeting is for Colwyn Bay County Councillors and Councillors involved in the Seafront Regeneration, no idea what the agenda is because the meeting does not appear on their calendar but, by law, should be minuted..... stop laughing at the back. I tried to get an invite, being a local Councillor, but was firmly put in my place and told “the meeting is for COUNTY COUNCILLORS only” which, translated means; “We don’t want obnoxious little Town Councillors here”.
This will be CCBC’s chance to hear what the people want to see happen, the chance to see how much it is affecting local people and the biggest opportunity yet to show the people of Colwyn Bay that they really do care what happens to us and our town. If, as I suspect, they do not turn up then this will be further proof, if it were needed, of the utter contempt that the Council and it’s Councillors show to the people of Colwyn Bay.

In light of what’s been happening and in answer to some questions that have been asked of me I intend to put the record straight.
I have no political aspirations whatsoever, I am not standing in the next General Election; I do not see myself barnstorming into Westminster and putting the world’s wrongs to right or indulging in shoving my snout into the overflowing trough of expenses. I have no thoughts about standing for the Welsh Assembly, yet more parasites feeding off the backs of the general public and doing bugger all for it. I will, however, stand at the next County Elections.
I have been asked by members of the public to stand in the Glyn Ward, I was going to stand elsewhere but, after hearing their concerns, and seeing the performance of some Councillors I have decided that I will stand here in the Glyn Ward if only to see that other Councillors do not get re-elected, if I can take enough votes off one certain Councillor to ensure he isn’t re-elected then I will consider that “job-done” regardless of who else gets elected.
When I got into this lark it wasn’t for fame, glory or money, I, naively, thought I could put right some of the wrongs that, as a tax-payer, I could see happening. I wasn’t prepared for the bureaucracy, politics and bullshit that go with it. Whatever happened to honesty, decency and openness? We, as Councillors, should not be told don’t tell the people this or that; you voted us in there you have a fundamental right to know what we are doing on your behalf, how we are spending your money is, and should be, important to all of us.
If I see something is wrong I say it’s wrong and if I upset other Councillors by doing that then tough shit, I make no apologies for it, I would much rather incur the wrath of some of these overstuffed oafs than sit back and do nothing. That is another problem, Councillors who just “go with the flow” because it’s so much easier than arguing, if you don’t want to argue about what is right then get the hell out of there and make room for someone who is prepared to stand up for what’s right, it’s as simple as that.
I carry the baggage of my old political affiliations with the BNP, so what? Does that make me blind to what is going on, or to the injustice perpetrated by the Council... does it buggery it just makes me more determined to prove that you don’t have to be a snob or a plank to be a Councillor.

I’ve been away from the blog for a few days. Not long ago I helped someone locally fill-in some forms and housing applications, spoke to some people on their behalf and they were successful with their applications, they were very grateful and thanked me for my assistance. So happy were they that they told their friend who had had his DLA (Disability Living Allowance) stopped. He was receiving it for over 12 months when it suddenly stopped and he was put on a Job Seekers Allowance, the person involved is so severely disabled and would be unable to walk never mind “Jobseek”. It transpires that they sent him a letter that was so full of official terminology he couldn’t understand its contents and so discarded it; the wrong thing to do I know; but they didn’t. After speaking to the people at the DLA and filling in the relevant paperwork they are now reinstating it so all’s well there. Another person has been having problems with his housing, another was a Crisis loan and another was an application for a grant.
Most of the people I helped for one reason or another had originally been turned-down or refused their application because they didn’t understand the system and, I have to admit, neither did I. It wasn’t without speaking to people and asking them to explain the question that I was fully able to understand. Not everybody will do this, they maybe to embarrassed or they may not know you can do it. It showed to me, and gave me a better understanding of, our benefit system, it’s not without its flaws and genuine people do slip through the cracks. There are also those who I would call “Professional Benefit Claimants” they DO know the system and they know how to milk it and they are making it harder for those who do have genuine problems.
My advice to anybody making a claim is DO NOT ignore letters that are sent to you and if you don’t understand phone up and ask them to explain, I found them very helpful and they even told me of other things these people were entitled to.

Well, here we are, 2010, the end of what must be the most disastrous decade to have hit our country in half a century. Maybe worse than that, in terms of the effect which the first decade of the 21st Century has had upon the native population of these Islands, the last ten years may have caused more lasting damage than any our people have ever lived through.

In the first decade of this century we came closer to being replaced within out homeland than we ever have before.

What has been done to us we allowed to be done. In the past, our people stood together and faced down war, plague and hardship. This time we neither stood together nor faced up the the threat before us, indeed, most of our people surrendered and laid down their children's future, their children's heritage, for temporary comfort and for fear of a word.

In the past we have always survived what our country faced, yet because this time we surrendered, for the first time in a thousand years, it is by no means certain that we will survive what has overtaken us in the last ten years.

We are a wounded people, we are an occupied people and most dangerously we are a disunited people.

Rejoin the ranks John.

Anon 23.27,
As I creep into the 2nd year of writing this blog you have been the constant burden I have had to carry; I have lost count of the number of your comments I have had to reject, you have cajoled me, incited me and, at times, inspired me. Your dogged determination is, begrudgingly, inspirational, you have hung-on in there and brought the fight to my very doorstep, your persistence is nothing but creditable. You are, without doubt, a sincere Nationalist with a pride and a passion for your Country, it is you, and the very people like you, who stand tall and shout for what you believe in, you face the taunts, the insults and the slurs but yet you come back for more, you, and those others like you, are what enthused me into joining the BNP, the people I met and the fervour they showed drove me to a new determination but there is a darker side to the BNP and by exposing it I burnt my bridges. I have no regrets of being in the BNP, the same way I have no regrets about the way I have lived the rest of my life but it is a period of that life that is now over, like the parting of old friends, it was sad but inevitable. I wish you well in your struggles old friend and I hope you have many victories but, alas, I will not be there to celebrate them with you, that is something that you and the other Nationalists must do together. God’s speed.
