Vaughan, Whitby and Thornton (seated) in the good old days..

When Nick Griffin was dumped by the British National Party (BNP) last year, a whole group of sycophants rallied round to offer him their support. Griffin held a meeting, and eventually, agreed to the formation of a new party.

No sooner was it about to launch, Griffin pulled out of the new party “British Voice,” after what was left of the BNP revealed that Mike Whitby, the man who carried the Griffin political tradition around in an urn, had not paid the party back for some monies he had borrowed.

Whitby had initially been anointed by Griffin to carry the Griffin torch while he was traveling the world meeting other fascists. As a result, British Voice have not done much since its formation. Even Nick Griffin will not go near them. It has become a three man show of Martin Vaughan, Chris Thornton and Mike Whitby.

So it is no surprise to hear that Thornton and Vaughan, who double as both the membership secretary and regional organiser are making allegations against Whitby, the party’s Chairman, and are calling for his removal.

For legal reasons I cannot repeat the allegations here, but I can confirm that there is an emergency meeting to remove Whitby being held this Thursday in Newcastle, the party’s supposed stronghold.

I doubt anyone will be putting into the whip round at this meeting.
