English Democrats, Northern Ireland, Mr Uncles and Mr Butler: Part 2
Original article By Kent community activist
Which leads me to Mr Uncles and Mr Butler.
However it (the e-mail issue) is only regurgitated on a very obscure internet chat forum by opponents of the EDs. The mass of the English public are unaware and would be totally unconcerned by such issues, and people with strong loyalist sympathies (such as myself) are also unfazed by it.
In a later blog Mr Butler had this to say:
At the time of the May elections, Robin Tilbrook the leader of the English Democrats, appeared on a BBC interview where he was questioned about the involvement of ex BNPers. As can be seen these questions were easily dealt with and there was no adverse affect. The EDs won their first two council seats in fact. This interview is interesting as Robin was also asked about the ‘Sinn Fein’ allegations that some misfits think is of great significance. In the interview Robin brushes the matter aside and the reporter was totally satisfied with his response. Why? Because apart from a few embittered misfits, no one else is interested in the story. The BBC is certainly not and the public are not. Politics is about engaging the public in what they are interested in, not obsessing about the irrelevant odds and ends.
Note the tone of Mr Butler’s comments:
- the ‘Sinn Fein’ allegations that some misfits think is of great significance.
- apart from a few embittered misfits, no one else is interested in the story. The BBC is certainly not and the public are not.
If the BBC had not been interested, why had the question been asked?
