BBC: Where is the End of the World

I sat down at 8:30pm to watch the End of the World and all I got was an actor walking around car parks and a series of allegations that I could have easily got from reading some known websites. Maybe somebody might like the face of the main BBC presenter making faces and trying to sound mysterious talking about issues he knows very little about.

Who were his sources? This is where things get even more interesting. The BBC tries to get a drop of credibility by using disgruntled individuals whose views are used as revealed truth.

They say many things, but there is not a drop of hard evidence. All we get is presumptions and speculation about numbers that once again we could find in any of the aforementioned websites.

The theatrical aspects of this BBC comedy get even more hysterical when a “confessed fraudster” reveals that she was kidnapped. Marion Thomas speaking on camera says that she authorized as paid invoices that in her view had not been paid and she speaks about fraud not realizing that by rubberstamping such documents she would have been actually committing fraud.

Simon Bennett, the man that is reported to have pulled down BNP websites on the eve of the election in 2010, suddenly is a model of propriety having let down people that very much trusted him.

Working for the London Press Office I was making telephone calls to find out why BNP sites were down and came across the information that Simon Bennett had left taking with him control over the party websites on the eve of the 2010 Election. If this is an example of Simon Bennett reliability and patriotism, he must have an alien set of moral values.

This has proven to be a family affair with Marion Thomas, sister in law of Jim Dowson, and Jim Dowson himself portrayed as a fine and successful campaigner. No mention of the financial links between Marion Thomas and Jim Dowson and another character that is not mentioned either called Alex Thomas.

We know that part of Jim Dowson’s fundraising activities include the running of charities like Solas NI and Alex Thomas, Marion Thomas’s husband, was the last registered chairman of Solas NI before it closed down and this not before having received hundreds of thousands of pounds of European Union funding.

Jim Dowson talks about fabricated documents. Which fabricated documents? We would like to see the accounts of Solas NI, for example, and know the exact relationship of Alex Thomas and Marion Thomas in Jim Dowson’s affairs.

I can bear witness of Jim Dowson’s nationalist views. At every meeting, he said that he was not a political man. He said that he was in it only for the money and that he approached politics as a business. He promised to deliver hundreds of thousands of pounds for the British National Party because doing so he would be making money for himself. I have to say that in this regard he was being very straightforward. He was never a member of the British National Party. He did not want to join the British National Party. Money was his main aim.

As Dowson put an end to his relationship with the British National Party, he went on making money using British National Party membership databases and other party political databases. Why? Because the companies that he runs are all registered as his companies, including computer equipment containing membership lists. On a daily basis, British National Party members receive Britain First’s email asking for money.

During the leadership campaign, a colour-printed leaflet produced very much in the same style as Dowson’s Britain First was sent to British National Party members accusing British National Party leader Nick Griffin. Who, apart from the Central Office of the British National Party could have access to the BNP membership databases? Find the answer to this question and you will most probably trace the source of the said leaflet that was delivered without any traceable information regarding where it was coming from.

We have a version of the so called interview that never was organized by Panorama. The main interviewer went into the room and started asking questions about rape which, as we all know, had nothing to do with the purpose of the Panorama programme. Walking around and making faces, he sort of criticizes security measures the British National Party has been forced to adopt precisely because of attitudes promoted by the British Broadcasting Corporation.

Mark Collett had several legal cases that separated him from the British National Party and therefore he was perfect material for the BBC and so was John Walker because as it was explained by the BBC the monies attributed to him were in fact monies earmarked for party political expenses.

Regarding European expenses, a former BNP employee called Alistair Barbour, is suddenly an expert in terms of how and why the British National Party uses its funds. Doing all kinds of calculations they said there was a difference of 4,000 Pound out of a total of 10,000 Pound regarding expenses for a European tour. 4,000 Pound? This is Alice in Wonderland.

The United Kingdom sends to Europe on an annual basis about 65,000,000,000 Pound. If there ever was such a difference, even BBC radio presenter Lubna Qazi would have been amazed after she raked 18,000 Pound as welfare benefits as Carer’s allowance while working for Asian Network. The difference would be that the monies were legally available to the British National Party while the BBC radio presenter unduly claimed benefits without bothering to notify the Department for Work and Pensions.

In this regard the BBC has shown some common sense by firing Lubna Qazi and announcing proposed plans to clause Asian Network that has cost more than 25,000,000 Pound. Since the BBC Panorama claims that their version of Panorama talking about the British National Party is about money, I reckon it is relevant to refer also to BBC finances and we would like to know how much the production of programmes like Panorama actually costs.  

Just to add credibility to a very incredible account, the BBC brings in a fellow of the London School of Economics and Diana Wallisyp MP, not that either of them could have any kind of expertise in terms of the way the British National Party works.

That certain amounts declared to the Electoral Commission were not backed by invoices is a bit like rediscovering chocolate i.e. Clive Jefferson himself explained that he unsuccessfully tried to obtain invoices from Marion Thomas, information that she should have provided instead of making allegations about ‘being forced’ to rubberstamp invoices and making a fool of herself in front of television cameras.

It was mentioned that she has already being approached by Police authorities and I reckon that she should be asked why, if she knew of any wrongdoing, she kept quiet for so long. She claims that she was kidnapped. Did she call the Police to report her kidnapping? There is no record of any Police report filed on her behalf regarding any presumed kidnapping.

They say that the British National Party has debts. Well, another attempt to rediscover chocolate. Yes, the British National Party has debts and many, if not the vast majority of its debts, are related to having to fight court cases against disgruntled employees that have not proven to be ‘value for money’.

Talking about printing shops, the first question I want to ask is: was the British National Party their one and only customer? Some bloggers and the BBC itself imply that because some debts could not be paid they suffered terribly or even closed down shop. Mmm…. Mmmm… and more mmm.

Putting words in the mouth of a dead man like David Hannam to make accusations against the British National Party is not only of poor taste. I don’t think that such a testimony could ever stand in court.

I checked the BBC Panorama website and it says that the version of the programme will not be available for a second viewing. Why not? Is this a programming mistake? They made us wait for so long and now we cannot see it again with I-player? Mmm…. Mmm… and more mmm.

The BBC wants to talk about money. Let’s talk about money. Let’s make sure that our finances are in order and that BBC finances are in order. We want to know what every individual employee or manager of the BBC actually earns. For example, how much of taxpayers’ money the BBC actually spends in foreign tours? I reckon that they spend a lot more than 10,000 Pound. Should we ask them to make a Panorama programme about it?
