Woolas Judgement Opens Legal Door to Squash Lies About BNP (And BNP Will Contest By-Election if Called)The High Court ruling today that Labour MP Phil Woolas “deliberately” spread lies about his opponents during the May 2010 election has opened the legal door to finally prevent the Labour Party, the Tories, the Lib Dems and their far-left Communist Party allies from deliberately spreading lies about the British National Party.
In addition, the BNP has announced that it will definitely contest a by-election in Saddleworth if one is called. Mr Woolas has seven days in which to lodge an appeal, failing which a by-election will be held.
The significance of the court ruling is that for the first time ever, judicial notice has been taken of the fact that it is a breach of the Representation of the People Act, section 106, to deliberately misrepresent and lie about a political opponent in an election.
The court ruled that Mr Woolas had “published leaflets and newsletters making false statements about [his opponent] Mr Watkins while knowing them to be untrue.”
Mr Woolas had, the judges ruled, used “illegal practices” during the election.
Furthermore, they concluded that statements made by Mr Woolas which were lies, were known by him to be misrepresentations.
“Having considered the evidence which was adduced in Court we are sure these statements are untrue. We are sure that the Respondent did not believe them to be true,” the judges ruled.
The BNP has been the subject of years of the most outrageous lies and smears from the Labour, Tory and Lib Dem parties, all drawing up on the Searchlight/Hope not Hate lie factory under the directorship of its longtime hardcore Communist Party activist Gerry Gable.
Some of the more recent deliberate lies spewed out by the Communist crank Gable include allegations that the BNP opposes the Gurkhas, that the BNP would throw David Beckham or nonwhites off the England football team, amongst many, many others.
These lies are then printed and distributed by the Tories, Labour and Lib Dems, and repeated in the controlled media.
All these lies are about to come to a screeching halt. Today’s court ruling has in effect made these lies a criminal offence, and the BNP will now certainly use this precedent to close down all the lies and distortions about the party once and for all.
The Communist freaks and their Labour/Tory/Lib Dem allies take notice: the BNP will act legally against your lies.
