IT'S proving a very hard fought by-election for Thringstone Ward on North West Leicestershire Council where our candidate Roy Harban is battling to take a 20% share of the vote in a ward that the British National Party has never fought before.
The Old Gang parties are livid that we have turned up on their patch and there has been a concerted effort by them to denigrate the BNP. But as well as all the usual smear leaflets there has been one rather strange one - what do you make of this?
Nothing new here, you might say, apart from peddling the lie that Andy Sykes was a former BNP organiser. He was of course a trade union plant placed in the Party to help with the BBC's smear programme which was aired in July 2004.
But what about what's on the other side of the leaflet . . .
Yes, it's a Tory leaflet, produced in conjunction with Unite Against Fascism which is run by the Socialist Workers Party. Now that is a marriage made in hell - the very worse that British politics has to offer uniting against the BNP.
But this all goes to show how desperate the Old Gang parties are as well as just how similiar they are.
In Bexley it was the Lib-Dems that lined up with the UAF, in Newcastle it was Labour, and now in Thringstone it's the Tories. All tarred with the same brush and working with the lunatics of the Socialist Workers Party.
If reading the leaflet makes you cross, and you live in the East Midlands, then please get to Thringstone today and tomorrow and give brave Roy Harban and his hard-working team a hand. Let's show these Tory creeps, and their Marxist bedfellows, that the BNP are here to stay.
Our agent in Thringstone Wayne McDermott, believes that in spite of the deluge of anti-BNP leaflets that there is still strong support for the BNP on the doorstep and that the next 48 hours are crucial for maximising our vote.
