BNP members rate Robin Tilbrook above Nick Griffin
An example was an article entitled: Far right hardcore 'willing to prepare for armed conflict' in the Guardian.
The study behind this report, which can be found here, focuses primarily on the BNP & UKIP. These two thoroughly unpleasant parties have much in common with one another, and both are virulently hostile towards the English Democrats.
Although the document has been published by the equally unsavoury and misnamed far-left group 'Hope not Hate', the research carried out by the two academics who authored it appears to be factual and unbiased.
One particular gem in this publication which led me to write this article can be found on page 21 of the document in table 8 under the heading: Views towards political leaders.
The results in this table reveals that the BNP respondents gave Nick Griffin a 6.5 out of 10 rating for competent leadership, however they rated Robin Tilbrook of the English Democrats higher with a score of 7.3, making him the most highly regarded of all political leaders among BNP members!
UKIP, for all their many faults, at least ranked their own leader above all other, with Nigel Farage achieving a score of 7 with the next highest leader - Alex Salmond - getting 4.3.
I have only been an English Democrats member for almost a year now so I am still fairly new but I think I can safely say that I agree with the BNP respondents on the subject of Robin Tilbrook's competence as a party leader.
Robin puts a huge amount of his own money into the party rather than taking it out. He does well when interviewed by the media, and I think the chances of him launching a murder plot hoax against senior English Democrats officials in the run up to an important election are somewhere around the zero mark.
BNP members should take heart that the English Democrats welcome genuine converts to the Cause who has seen the light and leave the BNP. I am a prime example of that.
Life is too short to waste time propping up a corrupt regime which compromises any good people in it and turns bad people worse. Getting out of the BNP was one of the best things I ever did, and I hope that many more good nationalists will experience the relief I felt once I was out.
