Fine Ambassador

His was the first face I usually saw. He was always smiling and always immaculately dressed. It didn't seem to matter where the meeting or activity was - Carlisle, Maryport, Workington or Whitehaven, he was always one of the first people there . . .

But sadly no more. The untimely death of Nigel Williamson is a devastating loss to everyone who knew him. Nigel was a great team player and fine ambassador for the British National Party. His friend and political colleague Clive Jefferson, provides a moving tribute on his website:

Nigel was working hard along with Clive, Brian Allan and our team in Carlisle for the local elections in May where the Party is hoping to have more candidates and secure a bigger share of the vote than we did in May last year. In recent weeks Nigel had been out leafletting and canvassing three times a week and the response on the doorstep had been even more enthusiastic than it was 12 months ago.

Everyone campaigning here in Cumbria will have in their minds that all our efforts for May 1st are now for the BNP and for Nigel - these local elections will be dedicated to his memory and I'm certain he will be looking down to see how we have fared.

There was a useful Advisory Council meeting yesterday where future plans for the Party were discussed in detail. Suffice to say after May 1st it will be all systems go for the European Elections and the 2009 local elections. Planning meetings start in June and the Summer School this year will have a whole day on maximising election performance.
