Snow Does Not Deter Salford British National Party Activists in Walkden By-election
Christmastime snow could not deter Salford British National Party activists from campaigning and leafleting for a by-election in Walkden, reports organiser Gary Tumulty.
“Salford's activists were joined by a team from Bolton the day after Boxing Day to prepare for the by-election which resulted from the death of the sitting Labour councillor,” Mr Tumulty said.
“The team continued to canvass and leaflet the area in spite of the deep snow,” he said.
“The response from residents has been very positive, with comments such as ‘about bloody time you lot showed up’ being quite common.”
Deputy organiser Keith Fairhurst pointed that that Walkden North was completely new territory for the British National Party.
“I'm heartened by the fact that we were well so received and that our message is one that resonates with the residents,” Mr Fairhurst said.
“In particular, the British National Party’s anti-war campaign has proven highly popular and many locals made less than complimentary comments about the warmongering old gang to our activists.”
“As with every election campaign, there is always a need for extra bodies to help with leafleting,” he continued.
“If anyone can spare a few hours, we would be very grateful. Please contact Gary Tumulty at bnpsalford @ live.co.uk or call 07909674006.”If you liked this news article, please donate to help with running costs and improvements of the British Party Website website.
