Continued council inaction over fly-tipping in Spennymoor prompted County Durham British National Party volunteers to carry out their latest clean-up operation this month, picking up rubbish in the woods near the Cow Plantation.
Despite several requests, the local Council have failed to keep the woods clear of litter. Our activists took it upon themselves to do the Council’s job and tidy the area, which is a favourite with dog walkers and local residents.
The volunteers all wore their “County Durham BNP” hi-vis vests and were greeted warmly by passers-by. “We’re well-known in the area,” said National Organiser Adam Walker.
“Whenever we get a spare half-hour, we do a bit of leafleting to keep things ticking over. The locals recognise us when they see our team out doing activities such as this.
"It’s good for the local branch because it raises our profile, although it must be a bit embarrassing for the local authorities and lazy councillors, who take tax money to do the work but then don’t and end up having to be helped out by members of the British National Party.”
In recent elections, candidates for the British National Party have polled around 25% of the vote in Spennymoor. In the last round of Unitary Council elections, Adam Walker came within 120 votes of gaining a seat. Clearly the work our activists are doing, where the elected officials can’t be bothered, is paying off.
Despite being hated by members of the local Council for being different and despite being denied access to the Town Hall for meetings (except in an election period), Spennymoor British National Party activists will continue to offer an alternative and will stop at nothing to change things for the better.
