On Saturday 18th November 2017, a packed audience of British National Party members attended a BNP Conference held in the Eastern Region at a superb venue in Essex.
BNP members and supporters from all over the country also attended.
The master of ceremonies for the first half of the conference was Eastern Regional Organiser Councillor Richard Perry.
Mr Perry gave a short historical insight of the local area before introducing the first speaker on the packed agenda.
The first to speak was the East London organiser and London Regional Chairman Paul Sturdy whose speech was titled ‘Seize the Moment’.
The next speaker was Croydon & Sutton Chairman Cliff Le May who told us that it’s never too late to save your country!
We then had the first tea break of the day.
After the break, South West regional chairman Adrian Romilly spoke about spreading the nationalist message on radio phone-in shows.
The audience heard an audio of Adrian engaging in a lively debate with a BBC Radio presenter.
Next up was Nigel Christopher who gave a very informative talk about Islam and the Quran (Koran).
Then it was time for a traditional lunch of Fish & Chips.
Piper Chic entertained the diners by playing the bagpipes, one of the most recognised cultural icons of Scotland.
London regional organiser Mike Jones chaired the conference afternoon session and started proceedings by introducing Peter Finch.
Peter urged members to come forward and help, especially if they have a particular skill that could benefit the party or their region.
Jane Rackley then recited some patriotic poetry.
The next speaker was veteran nationalist Tess Culnane who, as ever, gave a passionate speech.
The Bromley & Lewisham organiser Roger Tonks then spoke about how the state is changing the fabric of our society.
Mike Jones made some announcements including forthcoming events before the audience sang ‘Happy Birthday’ for birthday boy, Paul Borg.
Staff at the conference venue then presented a specially made BNP birthday cake to Paul, along with cards signed by all his BNP friends.
Then it was time for awards.
This year, the award for courage went to a British nationalist hero and the longest-serving BNP councillor in history, Brian Parker.
The activist of the year award became a joint award this year, shared between two lifelong nationalists Paul Sturdy and Paul Borg.
Well done lads, keep up the excellent work!
The next speaker was Mike Jones who spoke about important forthcoming elections.
Then we were treated to a special guest speaker from France.
The usual raffle was replaced by the more entertaining fundraiser of Heads & Tails hosted by Richard Perry.
After a tea break, BNP Press Officer David Furness (pictured above) was the next speaker.
David gave a persuasive speech about why those who want a ‘soft Brexit’ are betraying the will of the people.
Cllr Richard Perry then really made it a day to remember with an important announcement at the end of his remarks about local community politics.
Finally, we all sang our hearts out to the beautiful sound of ‘Jerusalem’, the traditional, classic hymn and Christian song.
To round off a great day, members then enjoyed an evening social with drinks and food.
In summary, it was a fantastic conference that was enjoyed by all present.
Special thanks to all the venue staff who looked after us from early morning until late Saturday night.
