Adrian actually raises something I thought of.
I can remember the 2004? EU election and we were raising money for it the Summer before. I remember being extremely apprehensive about the prospects for the party being able to raise such an enormous sum for the EU elections of this year when, I believe, fund-raising only started around mid-January or so.
I was surprised and delighted that the party did it (I put in my share too). It raised more in a shorter period of time than it had before. I think this is the reasoning behind the current (non-existent) fund-raising effort for next year's GE. Of course, we'll have to hit the ground running early in the New Year since the election will probably be at least a month earlier in the year (i.e. May) and possibly sooner.
The government anti BNP campaign will be a big effort by them for the GE. The BNP will be really struggling to make ends meet in time for the elections because people just dont want to be seen as being on a losing side. Membership renewals will be very small as well as a lack of )m)any new members. But hey, who knows, maybe bnp will get lucky and just scrape through things this time instead of always bombing in the GE?
"There are no UKIP infidels in London or Manchester. Never! My feelings - as usual - we will slaughter them all!" These are the latest words of NG in his latest newsletter to supporters. "God will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of the BNP.They're coming to surrender tomorrow", he also stated.
