Last week's Council meeting

I was very happy to support the following motion put forward by Independent Coucillor Gary Wilkes and later amended by Lord Peter Smith which was accepted by Councillor Wilkes. Councillors from every party represented on the Council voted for this motion which read as follows:


This Council views with grave concern the implications of the amount of people in the Borough that voted BNP in the European Parliamentary elections that took place on Thursday June 4 2009.

We, as a Council and individual Councillors, must pledge to the people of this Borough that we will work harder to understand their concerns and support policies that promote jobs, better housing and fairness for all

If this is to work successfully all party leaders that support these values must pledge to put their differences to one side and fight those who may act like a wolf in sheep's clothing in working against these values.

The result of the vote was as follows:

For the motion 56


Against the motion 0:

Abstentions 0

Only 56 voted for it? I thought there were 75 councillors...does that mean 19 councillors didn`t attend?
Anyway, does this mean that all six of the Ashton and Bryn councillors will attend the public meeting at the Stubshaw labour club on Monday 27th July at 7.30 ?
I would like to think so given the imprtance of the debate to our future.....Ray Davies

'If this is to work successfully all party leaders that support these values must pledge to put their differences to one side and fight those who may act like a wolf in sheep's clothing in working against these values'.

Its people like you who are the sheep in wolf's clothing. You and your ilk have destroyed all the values of this country. Hang your head in shame.

Cllr Nigel Ash.
Why are you and your ilk such seditious bigots?

You openly back wars in other nations.
You wantonly waste our monies.
You have done nothing to improve Wigans infrastructure.
Voting for sunshine will not stop it raining. So what are you going to do to stop the burgeoning popularity of the BNP? Actually work for the interests of the Wigan people for once? You should of thought of that one from day one! Or simply ban democracy? Too late now.

I could go on but one thing is very clear when I talk to people. The labour party are sunk. Millions in debt. You have sat wide eyed and clueless while in our times of plenty you squandered away our childrens future on some weird need to bastardise this nation with gun and knife criminals. Be honest, they hate you too..

Mr Ash you had better get used to the idea of the British National Party being AROUND for a very long time... We are here to stay.
The Fascists and bigots are UAF and all who sponsor and support them..........
THEY ARE THE ONES THROWING EGGS, BRICKS AND CLAW HAMMERS. TRYING TO DENY US OUR DEMOCRATIC RIGHT.
I DON'T AGREE WITH YOUR VIEWS,,"BUT" I WOULDN'T DREAM OF
ADOPTING THE ATTITUDE OF THESE THUGS.

I see your Hopenothate militia set up a stall in Mnachester city centre yesterday Cllr.Ash, trying to recruit support for their annual riot in the sleepy village of Codnor in Derbyshire. And a corner of this village which hosts the British National Party's annual family fun pact Red White and Blue festival.

Last year ONLY 33 of your masked friends were arrested Cllr.Ash, as your associated lunatics tried to break onto our site. How can anyone in their right mind want to seek violence at a family run festival? Or, did they just want a ride on the dodgems or the Ferris Wheel? Maybe they wanted to enter the 5-a-side football tournament or the Tug-o-War?

Will you be lending your support in Codnor this year Cllr.Ash?

Or, are you staying a safe distance away from these masked cowards who's actions you condone with much praise?

Ask me again who are the real fascists, nazis and hate filled ones are?

Hypocritical coward!

Fairplay said...

"Leigh Nationalist" - did you not notice that all 56 local councillors present at the meeting registered their disapproval of your racist organisation? Doesn't that tell you something? Singling out Cllr Ash for your diatribe just shows how hate-filled you are. And hiding your efforts at recruitment behind some benign 'garden party' doesn't fool the majority of decent people.

Leigh, Lancashire Nationalist said...

First and foremost Fairplay...do you agree to masked marxists/anarchists thugs threatening violence against women and children on private land going about their own business?

33 arrested of your animals last year! None from the BNP! What does that tell?

You just don't have a clue do you Fairplay? Blinded by your own Far-Left wing diatribe!

You say.."efforts at recruiting" OH! MY GOD! How bloody deluded and stupid are you to believe that this is what happens, I actually feel a little embarrassed for you Fairplay, you really do need to get out into the real world.

The whole weekend is about having fun and enjoying the beautiful countryside and fresh air, it's one big happy family gathering, with regional stalls from all over the UK, with Cheeses, cakes, jams, wines..OH! How Wicked we are!!

A fairground and Coconut Shy, a quiz, a sing-a-long in the evenings, the fun is endless.

I think you are just jealous of us because we can still keep some of the good olde British traditions and laughter!And this without having to be in line with the left-wings mantra of politically correctness.

Anyway, "all 56 local councillors registered their disaproval," Yes, because they are quaking in their jackboots that we will unearth the truth and expose this corrupt lot for what they are; cowardly, bigoted, thieving, snivelling corrupt bunch of hypocrites.

So, over 7,500 voted for the British National Party in the borough of Wigan! Anything to say to that?

And I have singled Cllr.Ash out because he's the only one of our councillors who have their own blog, we get the same with our own blog..so, it's fair game I'm afraid Fairplay.

As for hate filled??? It wasn't me wielding the hammer at BNP's Tony Ward splitting his head wide open.We believe in democracy, something that just isn't in yours, Wigan council or Cllr Ash's vocabulary!

Leigh, Lancashire Nationalist:- Well said, back you all the way with your last comment........
They haven't grasped it yet, that THEY (the UAF and such like)) are the FASCIST THUGS.?

Fairplay.------ I've said this before on this site and will keep on saying it until YOU and people like you GET THE MESSAGE...
Winston Churchill said at the end of WW2.

When fascism returns it will be in the guise of ANTI-FASCISM...

Andy said...

Bullies accuse their victims of what they most deplore about themselves.

So, 19 councillors will not vote for anti-democratic measures but lie low in case they get attacked, omitted from the next elections and so forth.

"Fairplay". How much money is this exercise going to cost me?
