Note the first line of the e mail to the organisers in the bulletin below.
It says it all.
" You've got the contacts on the petition forms — now learn how to get the most out of them!
Then read the other line lower down in the text of the e mail, " We've rolled out the first hugely successful petition to prove that we can collect the voter contacts we need ".
There you have it - the campaign was simply a mechanism to collect names and e mail addresses to ponce money out of them and fleece them into giving money to Dowson, who gets a 7.5 % cut from each new member.
Nothing in the e mail about how they are going to get the petition sent to HM Government to try and end the war, instead the whole campaign is exposed as a plan to get money, names and e mails to try and fund the Griffin / Dowson money making scam that is the BNP.
You people who still support Griffin disgust me. The good members that remain should be ashamed of the party and how low it is fallen under Griffin and Dowson.
As for the BNP conference - what used to cost members ten pounds to attend will now cost over two hundred pounds, and thereby ensure the BNP conference becomes another money making scam AGAIN.
The BNP is now nothing more than a shell of a party run from the top via the internet and assisted solely by gullible newbies and opportunists who have no experience of the reality of the BNP.

> BNP Organisers’ Bulletin - October 2010
> REGIONAL TRAINING DAYS
> You've got the contacts on the petition forms — now learn how to
> get the most out of them!
> New members. Door-to-door Voice of Freedom sales. Election
> winning postal votes - they're all yours for the taking. Come
> along and find out how!
> The most important and exciting set of training days in the
> history of the party are being held this autumn. After several
> years of being beaten by Labour and the Lib Dems' mastery of the
> postal vote, our Elections Department, marketing team and
> computer experts have designed the system that will allow us to
> fight back and once again compete with the big boys.
> It's all about voter targeting, data harvesting and handling, and
> having a high-tech online campaigning system that will allow you
> to identify, motivate and mobilise your local BNP voters.
> We've felt the pain of defeat by opponents who have learnt from
> the bloody noses we gave them a few years ago and who are now way
> ahead of our old game. We've listened to people who said there
> had to be a better way than canvassing ourselves into the ground
> just before polling day. We've studied why Labour and LibDem
> activists are nowhere to be seen on the streets yet are winning
> more and more elections.
> We've spent the summer learning, adapting and innovating. We've
> rolled out the first hugely successful petition to prove that we
> can collect the voter contacts we need. Now we're ready to show
> you the completed jigsaw. Come and see for yourself. Come and
> experience a quantum leap in the effectiveness of our campaigns.
> Come and be part of a team that's hungry to win again, and has
> created the tools that will give us victory.
> Subjects covered will include:
> * Introducing the BNP's online campaign database, ‘Alfred’. What
> it is and how to use it to win;
> * Capturing data, capturing votes. Accessing and building your
> register of target voters. Hands on experience - please bring
> your laptop;
> * Giving you the tools for the job. Template local petitions and
> campaign leaflets
> * Advanced local campaigning. Exposing council failings.
> Workshop 1: Digging the dirt in the town hall.
> Workshop 2: Councilcomplaint.com - local blogging that ties
> into real voter concerns.
> Workshop 3: Community Observation Patrols - filling the gap left
> by ConDem police cuts.
> * Telephone canvassing. The system, the law, the opportunities.
> * Voter Outreach. Targeted communications to individual
> voters — acquiring information and using it to build your voter
> Our new system is cutting edge radical nationalism in action.
> Alfred is not a sideline or gimmick, it is going to be at the
> very core of all our national and local campaigning.
> The techniques and software utilised by Alfred have been
> researched and tailored to our needs. We have done our work now
> it is up to each official and key activist to adopt the new
> methods and build it into the election winning system that we
> need. Databases need serious work put into them in that quality
> electoral data will not gather itself, it will not input
> itself – that’s your job.
> The Campaigns Executive has been working non-stop and the
> elections team have all the knowledge needed to turn round our
> electoral fortunes - but only if the local branches and
> candidates step up to the mark as well. Remember, this system
> will help facilitate the advanced electioneering and community
> targeting needed to win elections in the modern political
> arena – it is now, however, a substitute for good old-fashioned
> hard work!
> The database will be live tested in one target area per region
> (more if the will and the skill level is there) up to the
> elections next May. The real purpose of this whole system is to
> change the mentality of our elections machine into a forward
> planning operation with medium and long term goals - there will
> be no overnight fix! This is a defining moment for our party as
> we have decided we will win and win big and this is how we will
> achieve it.
> It is VITAL that all key officials and serious activists
> understand what we're doing and their role as part of this new
> power-winning machine. Here are the meetings so far:
> NORTH EAST/SCOTLAND/CUMBRIA: Saturday 30th October
> YORKSHIRE: Sunday 31st October

> POPPY APPEAL — DO YOUR DUTY AND PROVE WE CARE!
> Thanks to our four weeks of table top campaigning in hundreds of
> towns and shopping precincts, more people than ever before have
> seen and had happy contact with our activists. This can now be
> turned to our advantage, and we can at the same time do some
> good for the bravest, best and most ignored people in our
> nation — our ex-servicemen.
> Every BNP member who is serious about being an effective local
> community campaigner or council candidate should make contact
> TODAY with their local Royal British Legion and volunteer —
> without any mention of politics — to give a couple of hours
> selling poppies in the run-up to Remembrance Day.
> Dress smartly, look tidy, and show your respect for those who
> sacrificed their youth and their mates for our freedom. Get out
> there on the same streets where you've been collecting petition
> signatures to sell poppies to help raise funds for vulnerable
> This wonderful British tradition is fading as the war generation
> that used to sell poppies passes on. But young people moved by
> the pointless sacrifice in Afghanistan are ready to buy and wear
> poppies as a gesture of support for our heroes. But only if
> someone is there to sell them — let's give a bit of our time to
> fill the gap and keep the Poppy Day tradition alive.
