However I have heard this story before thought it had rather slipped my mind. Which is unacceptable really.
I know a fair bit about environmentalist "direct action" techniques having been the only student to serve in the ranks of the Establishment's 1000 strong security team during "the battle of the Bollin" also known as the Manchester Airport Runway Two protests. Tremendous fun, I saw Martin Bell and was involved in the first Medieval battle fought on English soil since 1485. I spent most of the campaign sabotaging all attempts to impose order by the management out of sheer boredom, ably assisted by a deserter from the Turkish Army and a not inconsiderable bag of hashish. Good Times.
The BNP could learn a tremendous amount about agenda setting and media control from groups like Earth First. One of the more interesting aspects being their use of very low quality activists in an extremely aggressive fashion using para-military organizational techniques. These people ripped up the rule book and crippled their opponents so badly that barely a square foot of tarmac has been laid since. It wasn't that they were very good at what they were doing, it was the paralysis of the opposition for fear of the media which caused the damage. The damage being the tens of millions of pounds the protests caused the constructors of the runway.
If Sadie Grayham has been involved in such groups that is another excellent reason why she would make a good chairman. The BNP desperately need to learn from the vastly superior tactics and techniques of the "Green" and other lobbies and anyone who has experience of these subjects should be listened to carefully.
Moreover one of the most important intellectual battles the BNP has to fight is against the established Green Party for control of the environmental high ground. The Green Party has lacked the intellectual courage to follow the logic of environmental thought to its inevitable conclusion and in doing so has betrayed their cause. The simple obvious fact of the matter is that population number and density is the driving force behind all environmental problems and the Green's will not and can not face up to this. Incidentally Sadie Grayham would not be the first "environmentalist" to arrive at the conclusion and react accordingly. Interestingly the Godfather of Green himself, James Lovelock has been making some fascinating comments on this subject and on the nation state as the only force capable of exerting influence on the environmental agenda. Sadie is uniquely qualified to take on this challenge. As opposed to Griffin who is the last man on Earth not to believe in global warming.
So in conclusion as they say I can't see how this information, if accurate, does anything but massively strengthen Sadie as a proposition for the chair.
