Richard Barnbrook stars in own historical fantasy

Their Assembly Member is known (to himself) as Richard the Lionheart, but the BNP entered even further into the realms of historical fantasy today with this Pyongyang-style summary of last week's plenary session:

"Tories, Labour, Lib-Dems, Greens and other Tweedle-Dee Tweedle-Dum parties on the Greater London Assembly were all shocked last week when the only GLA member to oppose their motion on granting amnesty to illegal immigrants was the BNP’s Richard Barnbrook."

Really?

"The leading Tory on the GLA, Richard Barnes, also attacked the BNP for daring to oppose the motion, but then in typical cowardly Tory style, abstained when the vote came. His fellow Tories did however vote in favour of the motion, and it was passed with only the BNP voting against it."

Right. So what's this all about then?


Note to the BNP. If you're going to rewrite history, make sure that your readers can't check it for themselves first.

They all live in a permanent state of historical fantasy anyway so this won't be too much of a stretch for them.
It's more of a surprise that they're able to operate a computer and construct a sentence, even if most of those are unintelligible.

Their readers won't check it for themselves, they prefer to live in the little fantasy world they've created. The BNP is more like a cult than a poliical leaning. S'funny, look on the comments on their site and you don't have to look for very long to see all sorts of references to new world order's and one world government plots/conspiracies etc.

They seem to have their own dialect as well. It is one part Daily Mail commenter two parts conspiraloon. I wonder if they ever use it in the real world and in everyday conversation.

I particularly liked the word "surruptiscious" in Barnbrook's blog. Splendid.

He does try though, bless his regulation stormtrooper brown cotton socks.

He has been an assembly Member for five months but has yet to know the name of the institution. There is no such place as the Greater London Assembly - it's the London Assembly.

It is OK to ridicule the fascists, but don't treat their support as a joke. Most of their members, let alone their supporters would revolt if they came to terms with Griffin's holocaust denial and the hardcore fascist criminal records.
Violent criminals are no joke. At present they are in their 'respectable phase'. When they decide to march again, it won't be a laughing matter.
Ridicule them by all means, but stop them!

It is true what you say about the BNP in general Stuart but I still find it very hard to take this particular fascist seriously, especially when he tries so very very hard to be taken that seriously.

Anyone who has seen him in action will see him for what he is: a total berk. He might be a very shouty berk with vile views, but he is still a berk.

Hah, yes, I'm sure they were shocked that Richard Barnbrook of all people was opposing immigration.

LOL you people are a joke!!! You call BNP members idiots in their own fantasy world, but your the ones in the fantasy world because you vote labour,conservative,Lib Dem and you expect our country to carry on as normal! But your ignorance and failure to see the bigger picture will result in your own demise! The only funny thing about the destruction of britain will be YOU voted for it. Whos the idiot now??
