Burnley and Bolton Makes it 120 Groups and Branches Taking Part in the BNP’s “Bring Them Home” Campaign
The appearance of the British National Party’s units in Burnley and Bolton on the streets of their towns last weekend has pushed the total number of party groups and branches taking part in the “bring our boys home” to 120, reports national organiser Clive Jefferson.
“The campaign is gaining momentum right through the North West and indeed the full country, with over 120 groups and branches now equipped with the campaign banners and literature,” Mr Jefferson said, adding that many more were just going out with the petitions.
The BNP’s Bolton group set up is stall near a busy pedestrian point and people could not but help see them, Mr Jefferson continued.
“The sun was shining but it was very cold, but the stall was well worth it for the response received.
“People where very happy to sign when they saw it was to bring our boys home, and one lady said her nephew had just gone in the army and she was worried sick,” he said.
“In Burnley, a party stronghold for the last decade, our organiser reported gathering up 300 signatures in just under two hours, which is a remarkable indication of the campaign’s popularity.”
