Introduction

The indigenous British population of Birmingham is doomed. Current government estimates put the ethnic minority population at thirty per cent and this is likely to be an underestimate. Demographers predict that the indigenous population will become a minority around 2015, in less than eight years from now. In twenty years time Birmingham will be a unrecognisable patchwork of conflicting ethnic groupings with the remaining British population packed into ever shrinking ghettos. Most of the white population who can afford to will have fled. Those that remain will be eventually assimilated into which ever dominant culture which surrounds them; Polish, Bengali, Pakistani, West Indian, Somalian or Indian.

However there exists a group of people determined that the destruction of the unique culture of Birmingham will not go unopposed. A small team comprised of truck drivers, carers, warehousemen, middle management, mothers, service sector workers and professional people committed to democratic non-violent resistance to the ethnic cleansing of the city. Birmingham's ruling elite has enormous resources of all kinds, an entrenched position and a vast pool of client voters. The Birmingham BNP has nothing but imagination and determination.

BRANDWOOD PAPERS SUBMITTED

The BNP’s nomination papers for the Brandwood by-election in south Birmingham were submitted to elections staff yesterday. We are pleased to announce that the papers were successfully processed and our candidate for the 20th September election has been accepted. Long standing party activist Rob Purcell is that candidate and he is one of our most seasoned campaigners here in Brum.

Rob joined the BNP in 1997 and was a founder member of East Birmingham BNP (2001). Less than a year later he was appointed Birmingham Branch organiser and to date he is the youngest organiser to have graced the West Midlands. Under his management the Birmingham party grew from contesting one council seat in 2001 to 24 just three years later and the branch received the national award for most new members recruited two years running (2004-05). Despite stepping down as organiser in 2005, he continues to take a leading role in our campaigns and is a regular speaker on the local circuit.

Outside the party Rob works for an independent British manufacturer based in Nechells. Having previously worked in the automotive industry Rob has witnessed first-hand the decline in British manufacturing and he actively campaigned against the threats to Longbridge in 2000 and 2005.

In addition to campaigning on the many issues of concern to him, Rob is a published writer and poet. He has even managed to beat the unspoken (not to mention downright fascist) ban on BNP members writing in the Trinity Mirror press and has headed the letters pages of the Birmingham Mail on several occasions in the last eighteen months. One of the biggest current campaigns of interest to him is the defence of individual freedom and he is steadfastly opposed to ID cards, vehicle tracking and the database state.


Rob has been selected to represent to the party on several occasions, including the 2004 European elections and the 2005 General Election. In the latter he contested the Yardley seat and recorded the highest parliamentary vote for a Birmingham BNP candidate to date. All in all we are pleased with his candidature for Brandwood and hope to have him on board writing for us from the campaign front over the coming weeks.
