    Thumbs up BNP force cancellation of Blair book signing

    Former prime minister Tony Blair is considering cancelling a high-profile signing session of his new memoir because of planned protests.

    Mr Blair said he was concerned about the potential "hassle and cost" to the police of pressing ahead with Wednesday's central London event.

    He said the Metropolitan Police were "fabulous and they will do whatever we ask them to do" but should not be asked to commit resources unnecessarily.

    "The book is selling fantastically. There are people - particularly now the BNP apparently say they want to get in on the action - you end up just causing a lot of hassle for people and cost when there are better things for the police to do and it's not as if we need to do it.

    That's funny - he's not at all concerned about the ongoing cost of protecting him....

    That's something of an exaggeration given that Blair had already announced the cancellation of the book signing before the BNP jumped in to try to make a bit of political capital out of it, saying they'd always been opposed to his actions! So had I; should I announce I've been partly responsible for the cancellation too?

    There would'nt be any hassle if B...Liar was in prison, where he belongs with the rest of these political warmongers, its beyond belief how these traitors have been allowed such freedom, freedom to go about their lives as if they are NOT responsible for the shocking state Britain is in today! He knew all along there were no W-O-M-D in Saddams arsenal, as he was informed at every step of the missile inspectors way, yet like the USA puppet he was he pursued the destruction of Iraq and the deaths and maiming of so many of our young soldiers! The 'Lib/Lab/Conmen party' completely ignored many calls for a 'U TURN', with the loudest from the BNP and stormed ahead with their quest for personel wealth-n-power! Well it looks very much like B..Liar has got his wish and thinks he can still walk all over the British people, as he reaps his millions from his brainwashed public, one day these traitors will pay for their crimes!

    So which is it? Do you support the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq or not? Judging by the tirade of opposition to any comments I and others have made against these illegal and immoral wars, I was under the impression that you supported it.
    Or is it the case that you simply cannot bring yourself to agree with someone with left wing views, even if by disagreeing you contradict yourself?

    I agree with Midas, this is political opportunism by the BNP. The signing and the party were cancelled before the BNP jumped on the bandwaggon.

    I have never given my support to any of these illegal wars, I've always been against them! Whatever gave you that impression I supported such aggression? There's nothing I'd like better than to see the entire British force, pulled out safely and brought home! The BNP however, have been champaining for a pullout since it all started, so I can't see where you've been looking to exclude Nick Griffins constant call for our troops to be brought home!

    Giving support to our military in the prosecution of these wars is giving support to these wars. You can't have it both ways. As I have already said to you in another thread, a soldier of any rank, from general down to private, not only has a right to refuse an illegal order, but a duty and legal obligation.
    If as you claim, you and your party believe these wars to be illegal, the buck doesn't just stop with the politicians. Everyone involved is culpable. No one tried in the nuramberg trials got away with saying "I was just following orders".
    The dilema for people like you and your leader though, is that there's no political opportunism and vote grabbing in holding soldiers accountable is there?
    BTW, many in the left opposed these wars before the even started, in the run up to them, and had the moral courage to stand down and end their political careers in deffiance. Griffin is just an opportunist.

    I think you've missed the point. We know the BNP have always been against these wars and we know Nick Griffin has said so many times. But the point is that their call to cancel the book signing was made after it had already been cancelled, implying that they were partly responsible for that happening, which is little more than trying to jump on an already moving bandwagon.

    Re: BNP force cancellation of Blair book signing

    Hi,

    the BNP had absolutely nothing to do with Anthony Charles Lynton BLAIR cancelling his book signing.

    Blair's indisputable Crimes Against Humanity - War Crimes and dishonesty as the most corrupt Minister in modern British history together with the lies he orchestrated with John Scarlet in return for a Knighthood and the lies he and the cabinet orchestrated jointly and which Jack Straw acted as messenger for when he lied to Colin Powell leading to Powell's speech to the UN and subsequent resignation and the obscene self enrichment of Blair and his lavender wife led to such revulsion amongst the public at large that his book signing in Dublin led to a huge protest that had much of the Guardie on standby and seemingly some 50 visible police on duty just so this egregious piece of filth could sign a few books for yet more money.

    It was decided that his book signing could lead to major problems in London and was cancelled.

    May I point out that his utterly incompetent premiership and the economic illiteracy of his Chancellor led to more damage to Britain and its economy also to its self determination, sovereignty and future than did Adolf Hitler and the entire Nazi war machine - though so far not as many deaths. That is potentially to come.

    The BNP played no part in the matter and would most likely have disintegrated with no MEPs had it not been for the efforts of Nigel Farage & Mark Croucher of UKIP making such efforts to raise their name at every opportunity prior to the election.

    Regards,
    Greg_L-W.

    Yes,Blair is the ultimate hypocrite and should be tried for war crimes for his attacks on sovereign states,albeit states where the governing regimes are abhorrent to most people in the West and were responsible for the deaths of thousands of their own people.
    The BNP will jump on any bandwagon they can to appear "acceptable".The trouble is that no one I know trust a party led by a former holocaust denier (or has he changed his mind again?)who appears to wilt under pressure (Question Time) when this and his other racist views are challenged.
    The BNP are a spent force,because although the average "indigenous" Brit is fed up with the immigration laws or lack of them in this country.Although the average Brit want the Lisbon treaty re-negotiated and only skilled workers here (even Big Issue sellers are out of work because of East Europeans it seems!).Although the average Brit wanted to vote Liberal Democrat but couldn't because of the silly stance on immigration and Europe and were looking for a Nationalist stance.They just couldn't bring themselves to vote BNP, when it was a real vote and not a council/European protest vote.They had too much sense.
    So no matter what the almost bankrupt BNP do and no matter what bandwagon they jump on.Common sense is catching up with them.It's a shame the same can't be said of "top of the book list" Blair!
