SOME interesting thoughts from Clive Wakley this morning.
He's a long-time nationalist colleague and I wouldn't argue with his 'trojan horse' take on the so-called English Defence League.
"I have been chatting to a friend, a long-term nationalist, who has made an interesting point.
"Labour's John Denham MP compared the BNP to Mosley's Blackshirts whilst commenting on the disturbances in Harrow on Friday. There is, of course, no direct connection between the BNP, Harrow or Mosley's Blackshirts. So perhaps the reference was a slip of the tongue. I'll explain what I mean.
"In 1936, as you will know, Mosley intended to march through the East End. Although Mosley's chaps were not directly involved the resulting massive disturbances the events gave the government of the day the excuse to introduce the Public Order Act, something directed specifically at curbing the rights of Mosley and his followers.
"I suspect that the so-called English Defence League is a state run Trojan Horse whose purpose is to directly or indirectly, spark a serious riot leading, perhaps, to serious injury or even fatality (police, innocent bystanders?)
"A death, deaths, serious rioting etc - would give the Labour government, supported by the Tories, media etc, the justification to significantly strengthen the Public Order/Race Relations Acts - perhaps to the extent of outlawing political criticism of Islam, perhaps even banning candidates representing Islam-hostile parties from seeking election in "sensitive areas" such as London, the West Midlands, the North West and Yorkshire.
"So perhaps John Denham's reference to Mosley was a slip of the tongue, one revealing the intentions of his party following a "Cable Street" style eruption in a sensitive area.
"An event being orchestrated between the security agencies and the government?"
Now I'm not normally one for conspiracy theories - in fact I have upset people because I tend to ridicule them. But the sudden emergence of the English Defence League with its articulate website urging street action is rather bizarre.
Does anyone believe that opposing the growth of Islam in such a manner can do anything other than alienate the vast numbers of those British people who are concerned at the increasing influence of the Muslim lobby within our society.
The Question Time snowball continues to grow and will probably provide us with the biggest propaganda coup since Nick spoke at the Oxford Union. We just have to sit back and let the opposition do their worst.
There are already splits in the Cabinet and amongst trade unionists, and with various organisations urging demonstrations outside the BBC, it looks like that evening October will provide us with all the necessary headlines to ensure that we our place in the political mainstream.
The British people don't like being told who they can and who they can't listen to. This campaign to try to silence Nick Griffin will only go to make the British National Party message all the more interesting.
