Introduction

The indigenous British population of Birmingham is doomed. Current government estimates put the ethnic minority population at thirty per cent and this is likely to be an underestimate. Demographers predict that the indigenous population will become a minority around 2015, in less than eight years from now. In twenty years time Birmingham will be a unrecognisable patchwork of conflicting ethnic groupings with the remaining British population packed into ever shrinking ghettos. Most of the white population who can afford to will have fled. Those that remain will be eventually assimilated into which ever dominant culture which surrounds them; Polish, Bengali, Pakistani, West Indian, Somalian or Indian.

However there exists a group of people determined that the destruction of the unique culture of Birmingham will not go unopposed. A small team comprised of truck drivers, carers, warehousemen, middle management, mothers, service sector workers and professional people committed to democratic non-violent resistance to the ethnic cleansing of the city. Birmingham's ruling elite has enormous resources of all kinds, an entrenched position and a vast pool of client voters. The Birmingham BNP has nothing but imagination and determination.

14th JUNE 1982 – FALKLANDS LIBERATED BY BRITISH TASK FORCE



25 years ago today a tired, filthy, soaked group of British soldiers arrived at Port Stanley and relieved the town of its Argentine occupiers. They had hiked from one side of the island to the other in harsh Atlantic conditions, trench-foot rife among them as they advanced across the boggy landscape. Furthermore, they had fought several vicious battles along the way and many squaddies never made it to Port Stanley.

On this day 25 years ago the Argentines surrendered, perhaps never knowing how close they had been to victory. However, dwelling on what might have been is pointless, the fact remains that despite the odds stacked against our nation this war was won by Great Britain and Great Britain alone.

Hundreds of British service personnel have been killed since 1982 on world-wide operations and many have died in acts of selfless heroism. Major deployments resulting in fatalities include the domestic fight against the IRA, peacekeeping in Bosnia, Macedonia and Sierra Leone and the wars against Iraq, Afghanistan in the Kosovo campaign.

However, proud as we are of each and every British serviceman and woman who has made the ultimate sacrifice, we say also that the Falklands War remains the last true British military victory of which we can speak. The Brits were sent far from home in 1982, as they have been in recent conflicts, but they were not allowed the luxury of building up forces on land over many months – the Falklands were amid the sea.

When the first Royal Navy destroyers approached the islands they were under threat from both sea and air, but this wasn’t the case in Iraq, Afghanistan or Yugoslavia. Sadly, the most poignant difference between the Falklands and more recent conflicts isn’t about aircraft and naval power, but the fact that we were liberating the former as it was our own territory. We have not sent our troops into battle since then on the basis of our own national interest. Therefore the Falklands can be rightly referred to as the last great British military victory.

Please spare a thought today for the families of those 255 British servicemen and three islanders who died in this brief but bloody fight for freedom and liberty. It is thanks to them and their comrades that 3,000 Falklanders embrace such values today and, above all else, are still British. Lest we forget.
