Southend West BNP candidate boasts of violence and drug use on Facebook profile

Tony Gladwin, the British National Party Parliamentary candidate for Southend West, has made several references to drugs, binge drinking and violence on his profile on social networking site Facebook.

Mr Gladwin (left), a single 26 year old builder, lives in Billericay with his mother. He is known to have worked as security for BNP leader Nick Griffin, and stood as an Essex County Councillor in the last round of elections.
On his Facebook page, which is open to the public, Mr Gladwin has made several references to violent clashes with socialists.
In October 2009, when Nick Griffin was due to appear on the BBC’s Question Time programme, anti-fascists and other opposition groups held protests at the studio where the debate was to take place.

Mr Gladwin was present with Mr Griffin at this clash, and demonstrated his eagerness to fight protestors. He wrote:


“but coz of the old bill doin der job 4 once in der traitorous lives, i might not b able 2 play with dem.”

In January this year, the Muslim organisation Islam4UK claimed that it would hold a march through the streets of Wooton Bassett to commemorate the Muslims killed in the Afghanistan conflict.

Senior BNP members Nick Griffin, Andrew Brons MEP and Richard Barnbrook claimed that they would “use their own bodies to physically block the street” if the march took place.

The march did not take place, but before this, Mr Gladwin expressed his excitement at the possibility of a clash between BNP supporters and Islam4UK. In response to a comment posted on his wall that said “see you at wooton bassett” on his Facebook profile, Mr Gladwin wrote:

“cheers m8 hope u ad a white xmas and a red free new year!

“cant wait m8 should b fun 2 cleansing our streets hope the filthy media shows how peaceful and carin they r and their willingness 2 integrate with english culture

“just tink this is the only country in the world dat allows foreigners 2 shit on the graves of our war heroes in public (with a police escort!) and get away with it but if u shout out naughty words dat offends them u get banged up!

“u gota laugh or u’ll cry or become a serial killer lol”

At other points, Mr Gladwin makes comments about people born with birth defects due to the use of the controversial drug Thalidomide. Thalidomide was used worldwide between 1957 and 1961 and was linked to birth defects such as shortened limbs, in what was described as “one of the biggest medical tragedies of modern times.”

An estimated 20,000 people are known to have been affected by the drug in this way. In the UK, only 466 of the “Thalidomide babies” born with defects survived.

On Mr Gladwin’s profile, a friend joked about impotence, writing “Hello Mr Floppy” on his wall.

In response, Mr Gladwin wrote: “Its a disability you know, you wouldn’t ask a flidermite [thalidomide] to change a light bulb would ya?!! They look like sea lions.”

Mr Gladwin also makes comments on his page about casual drug use. After posting a new picture of himself online, he wrote: “Now don’t I look like an ordinary respectable member of society?”

In response, a friend wrote: “Hello mate, just short of pipe and slippers then uv cracked it.”

Mr Gladwin replied: “Cheers m8 but the only pipe ive got has got a ganja leaf on it, dont tink that will go down well with da local rag lol!”

At the time of publishing, BNP representatives had not responded to Councilbust.com requests for comment.



A high-flying prospective Conservative MP, credited with shaping many of the party's social policies, founded a church that tried to "cure" homosexuals by driving out their "demons" through prayer. Philippa Stroud, who is likely to win the Sutton and Cheam seat on Thursday and is head of the Centre for Social Justice, the thinktank set up by the former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith, has heavily influenced David Cameron's beliefs on subjects such as the family. A popular and energetic Tory, she is seen as one of the party's rising stars. The CSJ reportedly claims to have formulated as many as 70 of the party's policies. Stroud has spoken of how her Christian faith has motivated her to help the poor and of her time spent working with the destitute in Hong Kong. On her return to Britain, in 1989, she founded a church and night shelter in Bedford, the King's Arms Project, that helped drug addicts and alcoholics. It also counselled gay, lesbian and transsexual people. Abi, a teenage girl with transsexual issues, was sent to the church by her parents, who were evangelical Christians. "Convinced I was demonically possessed, my parents made the decision to move to Bedford, because of this woman [Stroud] who had come back from Hong Kong and had the power to set me free," Abi told the Observer. "She wanted me to know all my thinking was wrong, I was wrong and the so-called demons inside me were wrong. The session ended with her and others praying over me, calling out the demons. She really believed things like homosexuality, transsexualism and addiction could be fixed just by prayer, all in the name of Jesus." "T" said he moved to Bedford because he believed the church could help him stop having homosexual thoughts. "I was trying to convince myself that a change was possible but, at the same time, a part of me didn't believe it was possible," he said. "The church's approach was not that it was sinful to be homosexual but that it was sinful to act on it. The aim is to get a person to a position where they don't have these sinful emotions and thoughts." "T" said it was only after he "took a break" from the church that his depression lifted. "It was the church's attitude towards my sexuality that was the issue," he recalled. "My impression is that she genuinely cares about people," he said of Stroud. "Her personal beliefs may get in the way sometimes, but she is a positive person."

Stroud and her husband, David, a minister in the New Frontiers church, allied to the US evangelical movement, left the project in the late 1990s to establish another church in Birmingham. Angela Paterson, who was an administrator at the Bedford church, said: "With hindsight, the thing that freaks me out was everybody praying that a demon would be cast out of me because I was gay. Anything – drugs, alcohol or homosexuality, they thought you had a demon in you." Kacey Jones, a hostel resident, said she was told to end her lesbian relationship or leave the church. "Philippa was still around when I first moved in," Jones said. "There was a 'discipleship house' for Christians struggling with issues, including their sexuality. They told me my feelings weren't normal. I didn't want to be gay, I wanted to be like everybody else, get married, have kids and please my parents." Stroud wrote a book, God's Heart for the Poor, in which she explains how to deal with people showing signs of "demonic activity". Stroud, who declined to talk to the Observer, writes: "I'd say the bottom line is to remember your spiritual authority as a child of God. He is so much more powerful than anything else!" In the book she discusses the daily struggle of running the hostel. "One girl lived in the hostel for some time, became a Christian, then choked to death on her own vomit after a drinking bout. Her life had changed to some extent, but we wondered whether God knew that she hadn't the will to stick with it and was calling her home." One resident featured in the book, Mary, was in an abusive relationship. "We discovered further layers of the tangle when she admitted to previous lesbian relationships and to being on the receiving end of abuse from her family," Stroud writes, adding: "No wonder she was in such a mess!" The Conservatives have tried to win over gay voters after a string of controversial comments by party members. The shadow home secretary, Chris Grayling, said owners of B&B accommodation should have the right to turn away gay couples. Julian Lewis, the shadow defence minister, said he was against lowering the age of consent from 18 to 16 for homosexuals. Revelations about Stroud's past are likely to make the party's task even more difficult. "This reinforces our long-held suspicions that those out of sight, but with their hands on the levers of power, have deeply reactionary ambitions," said Keith Porteous Wood, executive director of the National Secular Society. Ben Summerskill, chief executive of the Stonewall group, said: "If Mrs Stroud has been praying to rid Britain of its homosexuality, she clearly hasn't been praying hard enough. It would be highly regrettable if someone who continued to hold these views held any significant office in government."

English Defence League protest leads to 12 arrests

Twelve people have been arrested during a protest which attracted more than 800 people organised by the English Defence League in Buckinghamshire.

The EDL, which says it opposes "militant Islam", organised the protest in Aylesbury's Market Square earlier.

A police spokesman said that "on the whole" the protest had been peaceful but there had been "some disorder".
Eight of the people arrested were being held on suspicion of carrying offensive weapons.

Police said there were fewer protestors than the EDL had anticipated.

The group has held demonstrations over recent months in Manchester, Bolton and Derby.

Counter protest
Supt Richard List, of Aylesbury police, said: "We made it very clear to the EDL at the outset that we would not tolerate any disorder on the day and that there would be a significant police presence.

"The police operation will continue until we are totally satisfied that there are no risks or threats to public safety."
A counter protest was held in Vale Park earlier, but has since dispersed.

A rising star of the BNP has quit the party so he can expose Nick Griffin and his cronies for what they really are... incompetent racist thugs.

Ex-soldier Simon Nicholson joined the party in 2007, believing leader Griffin's claim that the party was no longer racist and would campaign on local issues.
He was even praised by Griffin when Simon came within 16 votes of overturning a 1,000-vote Labour majority on Cumbria County Council.
But after growing disillusioned with the party's racism, Simon agreed to work with the Sunday Mirror just before and during this General Election campaign. For nearly three months he kept a diary exposing the sickening racist extremism of BNP members and the true face of the party's far-right views.

Simon, 37, got right to the heart of the B N P 's election machine, At one rally in the North West, he watched as Griffin branded women in burkhas "big, black crows".
At a meeting in Cumbria, BNP National Organiser Clive Jefferson hit out at plans for a Muslim school in Burnley, labelling the scheme "a breeding programme".

Other BNP activists criticised mixed marriages and branded an area of London which has a large black community as "C**n City".
Simon also secretly filmed senior figures admitting how Griffin had taken advantage of the generous expenses system for Euro-MPs, bragging that "we play them at their own game".

Simon told the Sunday Mirror: "What I found was a party dominated by thugs who were still obsessed by race - and Griffin was the worst of the lot.
"The British National Party is a shambles and Griffin is telling lies to voters when he says he has the answers to their problems."

A history Of Hatred Fascist John Tyndall formed the British National Party in 1982 after a split in the farright National Front movement.
The party quickly gained a reputation for racism, anti-semitism and intimidation of opponents but won its first council seat in 1993 in London's Tower Hamlets.

Under Nick Griffin, made leader in 1999, the party has made further gains and last year won two seats in the European Parliament.

In March the BNP was forced by the courts to allow non-whites to join the party.

'Muslims are going to fly the black flag of Islam over Downing St ' - NICK GRIFFIN in Blackburn
Here is a selection of entries from the diary kept by Simon Nicholson during his time in the BNP...

Saturday Feb 13
Drive overnight from Cumbria for "national day of action" in Barking, where "the boss" Nick Griffin is standing against Labour MP Margaret Hodge.
Arrive at hotel and see a couple of Orthodox Jewish men in the street. Regional Organiser Clive Jefferson mutters: "Look at those f***ing Yids." Three of us crammed into tiny room, Clive rants about Muslims gang-raping "our women" and mixed marriages making him sick.
Griffin puts a couple of leaflets in letterboxes but barely speaks to a single local voter. Chaperoned through a few empty streets with two security cars and his bodyguards.

Later 30 members, including Griffin and other ex-National Front members, gather at The Crown pub in Epping Forest.
A party veteran tells us he used to live in Edmonton but moved out after it became "C**n City". Hates Enfield - "they're breeding like rabbits" - and didn't think much of the BNP's target area of East London today: "They'll f***ing blow the place up. I couldn't wait to leave there after what I saw today."

Thursday Feb 18
At a pub in Sandwith, Cumbria. Clive Jefferson claims "teams of militant Asians and Islamics" will be trying to infiltrate the party. But makes clear new constitution allowing ethnic minority members will be phrased carefully so even those who pledge loyalty to the BNP will be outcasts.

When Sikh member Rajinder Singh's name comes up, one member shouts "black b*****d". Another asks: "What are we supposed to call them when they come to meetings? N*****s? They like being called n*****s, don't they?" Clive suggests putting local Muslims "under surveillance" at Friday prayers and claims Burnley has metal detectors because kids have been stabbing each other in race rows.

Has a go at plan for all-girl Muslim school there, falsely claiming it will house 5,000 Muslims. Calls it "a breeding programme".

Later communications officer Martin Wingfield admits Euro-MPs Griffin and Andrew Brons - despite slamming MPs over expenses - are gladly milking the generous EU system for all it's worth.

"We play them at their own game", he says, then reveals BNP support is dropping off a cliff ahead of General Election. He warns: "Suddenly our votes are tailing off. They're going down and we can't understand why."

Weds&Thur Mar 16-17 JUST 10 card-carrying members on big trip to see Griffin at EU parliament, with another 28 of the 50 seats filled by random crowd, mostly blokes picked up around Cumbria - some necking vodka.
Hellish journey. At Brussels hotel a few of our lot spot two dark-skinned men and start banging the window and making monkey noises. On way to parliament, bus stops at traffic lights near a mosque - hard-core members smash their fists against window shouting abuse.

Told that on a recent trip to Brussels a BNP official spent the night in a brothel. We give that a miss. But our group, many of them out of their minds on booze, still causes chaos - reports of naked women running from room to room at 3.30am.
Journey back hellish, drunkenness and couples copping off. One female member hands in her card in disgust a few days later.

Sunday March 28
In charge of Griffin's security at Moorclose Hotel, Workington.
He's massively paranoid, but his security team love all the cloak and dagger stuff. Would usually be hundreds here but only about 20 today. Reflects what people think - they feel cheated. Griffin's abandoned them and gone down South to campaign for a Westminster seat.

Griffin's answer to the scourge of knife crime: "Most of the disaffected youths carrying out knife crime and gun crime in London aren't ours at all - they're criminals from other countries. They can go back there." He claims Muslims "14 times more productive than us" and soon UK, Ireland, France and the Netherlands "will be Islamic".
In Blackburn, Griffin claims burkhas nothing to do with religion: "It's their way of saying, 'We're here, we're outbreeding you, your Government's paying us to take over and we're going to fly the black flag of Islam over your No 10 Downing Street'." Describes women in burkhas as "like big, black crows".

Thursday April 1
Civil war among the leadership. Total chaos. Jefferson says Mark Collett, the publicity director, has been sacked, because he was "a bad influence on the party". National organiser Eddy Butler and staff manager Emma Colgate have also left their posts - Clive getting Butler's job.

Bulletin for key staff later reveals allegations that officials plotted a "palace coup" against Griffin. Then Collett arrested over alleged threats to kill Griffin. All the talk is of a catastrophic split and massive dissatisfaction with Griffin.

Friday April 23
St George's Day in Sandwith - small event in local pub. Apparently there's been a massive cock-up with election leaflets and hundreds might be useless - Jefferson can't make the event because he's been up all night trying to sort it.
He's already in trouble for failing to take part in live web debate, answering questions from local voters.

Campaign up here is in disarray.

Unbelievable. Been asked to take a job at April 28 party's North West office in Wigton as well as standing in the next council elections.
Party is falling apart at the seams and unpopular Griffin struggling to keep it together. Cock-ups left, right and centre and they can't get respectable people to work for them or stand in elections.

No way I could say yes. Regret ever joining them. I want to stand against them next year because now I know how bad they will be for working class people like us.
