Seeing as we are throwing open the debate to allow people to give us their ideas on how we should amend the constitution this is my idea ;
1) Write to the EHRC saying that we intend to re-define what we mean by 'white' in our constitution.
We state that the BNP and its constitution do not discriminate on the grounds of race.
We state that anyone of any race, skin colour or ethnicity can apply to be a member of the party and to be a member of the party.
We state that we intend to adopt the exact same definition of White as that used to define 'Black' by the Black Police Officers Association in their constitution, which is non-racial definition of Race and not based on skin colour and is therefore 100 % legal ;
1.3 The definition of "Black" is one that emphasises the common experience and
determination of people of African, African-Caribbean, Middle-Eastern, Asian or
Asian sub-continent origin to oppose the effects of racism and victimisation
Our definition is ;
The definition of "White" is one that emphasises the common experience and determination of people of British and European origin to oppose the effects of racism and victimisation.
"The British National Party welcomes as members of the BNP all those British Citizens whose concern is solely the national interest and the good of the British people and the British nation. Members of the BNP are dedicated to the preservation and promotion of British culture, the defence of the British way of life, British traditions and the ancestral heritage of the British Isles and the preservation and promotion of the rights and interests of the Indigenous British people.
All members expressly affirm the Party's political objective of repealing all anti-discrimination legislation and also affirm their support support for restricting British citizenship to those who are British as defined by Jus Sanguinius and to those who are fully assimilated British citizens with naturalised citizenship status based on Jus Solis who are prepared to work for the aims and objectives of the BNP. "
If the Equality Commission decides that our new definition of 'white' is unlawful then they have to issue legal proceedings against the National Black Police Officers Association and all those hundreds of ethnic groups and charities.
They will not do this, as to do this means the Equality Commission has to declare war on the entire multi-cultural system and all those ethno-specific group and organisations that it has allowed to operate with impunity in our society.
We do not have to change the constitution in relation to the BNP representing the indigenous people of Britain and Europe, as the clarification as stated above makes it clear that whilst we represent the interests of the indigenous British people, that does not mean we DIRECTLY discriminate on the grounds of race in our membership criteria or that our definition of white means we INDIRECTLY discriminate on the grounds of race or skin colour.
Those OF ALL RACES who join the BNP therefore join the party in order to represent and promote the interests of the indigenous British people, assimilated British citizens and also to defend and promote British culture.
2) We impose a five year probationary membership policy where you only get full membership after 5 years continuous membership. We allow the existing members to retain their existing full membership rights, but all new members of all races who seek to join will face a five year probationary period as Associate Members before they are allowed to claim Full Membership Status. This will ensure that new Associate Members do not have voting rights until they have been a member for five years, and that they will have to pay their membership fees for five years.
Then once they have become Full members they then have to wait two years to become a Voting Member.
This constitutional change is required in order to protect the Health and Safety of BNP members from infiltrators and agent provocatuers who may wish to join the BNP in order to cause legal problems for the party or who may wish to join the party in order to identify BNP members and pass that information on to organisations or individuals who may wish to inflict physical violence upon BNP members. Such a provision is legally authorised under the dicta of Redfearn v Serco which allows an organisation or association to impose such requirements on membership in order to protect the rights of its members.
This will allow us to screen all the people coming in to the party and remove all those idiots from groups such as Operation Black Vote who may try to join the party to cause problems.
Faced with the reality that they will be forced to fund the BNP for five years before they can be in a position to accrue any full membership rights means we ensure that no one of bad faith will join. Those that do wish to pay membership fees for five years and then when they are Full Members try and cause problems in the party can be removed on any grounds we wish - other than racial grounds of skin colour grounds etc - and that way we avoid any legal liabities when they are kicked out.
4) As part of the probationary membership clarifications to the constitution we state the following in the constitution ;
*All Associate members and Full Members that join the BNP agree not to invoke, utilise, or seek to base any legal actions upon in regard to any of the following legislation or legal provisions, or any associated case law claims in the civil courts, against any another party members, officers of the party, agents of the party or against the Party itself.
Breach of this term at any time during Associate Membership and Full Membership of the party will result in the immediate termination of membership and expulsion from the Party with no right of appeal to any internal party disciplinary review proceedings ;
• the Race Relations Act 1976 and all amendents and case law;
• the Employment Equality (Religion or Belief) Regulations 2003;
• the Employment Equality (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2003;
• the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006;
• the Equality Act 2006 ;
• the Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2007
. the Equality Bill ( or Act when passed into law ) 2009.
. The Human Rights Act 1998
. The ECHR and case law
. EU laws and case law
This is not an exhaustive list. Any other UK, European or International laws or legislation that the Party Chairman, in consultation with the Advisory Council, believes that damage, or could damage, the internal functions and political mission of the BNP or that may threaten the Health and Safety of members of the British National Party may be added to the list.
On the grounds of protecting the Health and Safety of members of the BNP from physical attack by those who may have joined the party solely to gain access to confidential information and data details on the identities of members or access to meetings where party members may congregate, as defined under the dicta of the Redfearn V Serco case the security department of the BNP will be authorised to refuse access to any Associate Member of the party to any party meetings, party events or the RWB unless ordered by their organiser or a senior party official to allow them entrance to any party meeting, event or the RWB festival.
Appointed regional organisers of the party, and senior officers of the party, will be given the sole authority to invite Associate Members to meetings solely at their discretion.
Associate Membership status will not include a right to attend party meetings, party functions or party events such as the RWB unless invited by an duly appointed officer of the party.
It will be the duty of appointed organisers to screen all new Associate Members and ensure that they are bona fide applicants for membership of the party. Those Associate Members that any organiser feels are not bona fide applicants for membership will be notified to head office and their activities monitored. After five years of membership if they have not caused the party any problems then all records on their possible problem status will be destroyed once they become Full Members of the party.
Associate Members will be required to disclose previous political memberships, affiliation or membership of the following organisations classified as hostile to the BNP ;
Operation Black Vote
The Labour Party
Socialist Workers Party
Hope Not Hate
Unite Against Fascism
The Liberal Democrats
The Green Party
This is not an exhaustive list. Other hostile groups may be added to the list as and when they are discovered by the Chairman and the Advisory Council. Any organisations who constitutions or activities have been directed at causing problems for the BNP, or who are hostile to the aims and objectives of the BNP are included within this list. Failure to disclose previous membership of, or affiliation with, those organisations or groups will result in immediate expulsion from the BNP.
This should do the job nicely I believe.
