By Hogarth. Whatever this site feels about the inadequate, incompetent, rotten, toxic and contaminated ‘leadership’ that ‘runs’ the party, it has no hesitation in backing ordinary members and patriots in the course of their political activities.
In the aftermath of the recent riots, BNP activists from East London — of whom most were pensioners — assembled in Greenwich to distribute leaflets, providing an alternative view to those expressed by the political establishment.
They were informed by Greenwich police that they could not operate in Greenwich and that this would continue to be the case until the police determined otherwise. They were further informed that they could not avail themselves of the services and merchandise of local shops and that they were expected to remove themselves from the location.
By way of justification, the police stated that they had reason to believe the BNP activists would be attacked by hostile elements, given the police had been monitoring social networking sites. No evidence of this was provided.
Our website is resolute in condemning the conduct of the Greenwich police.
The would-be Kommissars who intrude into the political arena should recall that they are, in fact, public servants paid by the taxpayer. Their task is to protect the public and uphold the law, in accordance with their Oath, which
“I, .. .. of .. .. do solemnly and sincerely declare and affirm that I will well and truly serve the Queen in the office of constable, with fairness, integrity, diligence and impartiality, upholding fundamental human rights and according equal respect to all people; and that I will, to the best of my power, cause the peace to be kept and preserved and prevent all offences against people and property; and that while I continue to hold the said office I will to the best of my skill and knowledge discharge all the duties thereof faithfully according to law.”
Note the words “fairness” and “impartiality” and “…”prevent all offences against people and property”.
When overweening careerist police upstarts, bloated by their rank, uniform and politically-correct mentors, take it upon themselves to determine what lawful political activities are acceptable and what are not, then they descend to embrace the concepts of the NKVD which ultimately led to the gulag.
Who determines what political activities are acceptable and what are not and by what criteria? Who determines who may avail themselves and where of local shops and services in their own country and who may not? What police officers consider they may break their own oaths of allegiance and on whose authority?
If the police are concerned about social networking sites and any criminal behaviour incited thereon, then the solution is to arrest those criminal elements. The purpose of the police is to “cause the peace to be kept”.
The alternative is that all political activities, by all parties, may be halted by the police, as the police consider fit, on account of social networking communications. In effect, the police would then become the arbiter of which political parties functioned and which did not.
Criminality in the pursuit of political objectives is also a terrorist offence.
The self-styled police ‘Kommissars’ who intruded into the political arena and demonstrated their prejudice against the BNP have brought the police into gross disrepute. They should be drummed out of the force, in disgrace.
