BNP elderly activists attacked in Islington
Posted on May 4th, 2010 by Carlos CortigliaIt happened today when a group of left-wing vandals, possibly high on alcohol and drugs, attacked a group of BNP activists campaigning in Islington. Among the BNP members attacked, was an 87-year-old in a wheelchair and a 67-year-old.
The attackers, mostly in their mid-twenties, proceeded to destroy campaigning materials and beat BNP activists. Had it not been for the actions of some stall owners, the ferocity of the attack would have produced fatalities.
The late arrival of police officers did little to reassure the public when faced with an incident that was orchestrated from the very beginning, since some of the attackers have been clearly identified as those involved in previous attacks in the area of Swiss Cottage.
This happens at a time when there have been violent attacks against journalists investigating several cases of electoral fraud. More than 50 cases in at least 12 London local authorities are being investigated by the Metropolitan Police and this includes revelations made by a Prospective Labour Candidate who spoke about postal ballot results indicating how many have been cast for specific political parties.
Tonight, none other than George Galloway MP, denounced the existence of vote rigging in Tower Hamlets, a borough that is already under investigation for electoral fraud with denonciations about the registration of ghost voters.
Violence against political parties and journalists and all kinds of electoral fraud perpetrated by people who are trying to win the election by whichever means are degrading British democracy.
All this in the context of a political party – the Labour Party - that is even campaigning against its own candidates and offering tactical voting. Such is the fear of some of the Labour Mandarins that they are ready and willing to sell their own people to keep themselves in power
