The truth was the Council had threatened to revoke the ACA’s licence, saying that it was a political meeting and if they proceeded to allow us to have the meeting at the venue, their alcohol licence would be revoked.
This was a decision took to attempt to stop freedom of speech, but the meeting went ahead anyway… they can’t stop free speech! (until they do, of course)
Labour and the Tories have accused the BNP of fuelling tension on the estate, and trying to drive a wedge between the various community groups (groups that they have forcefully and intentionally brought into our community without once asking us, the British people, if we agreed).
It only takes a few seconds of reflection to realise that in reality, that is exactly what they are doing themselves. By threatening to revoke the ACA’s licence if they allow our community meeting to go ahead (we know this by talking with the organisers of the ACA), it is they who are driving a wedge through our community. We will have the meeting outside the ACA if worst comes to worst, don’t worry on that front!!
They have snubbed the very people who voted them in by this underhand, sneaky, cowardly move. Where is their “tolerance” of our views, and how can snubbing the very folk – black and white, who voted for them possibly be conducive to community harmony?
Please allow us to give it to you straight.
Because you won’t get anything but distorted lies from this council and their friends in the Croydon Advertiser.
The Croydon branch of the British National Party were approached by concerned residents seeking the BNP’s knowledge and experience in dealing with proposed mosques popping up in every town and village in our green and pleasant land.
This was done shortly after the Croydon Advertiser article appeared on May… stating that the Al-Ahmadiyya sect of Islam was looking for suitable premises in our community and nearby to build a mosque.
Twenty years ago, some of us attended a public meeting in Morden (their council did NOT cancel that meeting, unlike the cowards of Croydon council) about the proposed building of a mosque in Morden by the Al-Ahmadiyya sect.
Representatives were there from both Morden council and the Imams of Al-Ahmadiyya to discuss in a grown-up and sensible way, local public opinion.
This proposed (as it was then) mosque was roundly rejected by all members of the local Morden community ‘INCLUDING’ local Muslim leaders, who said that they didn’t want it in Morden either because they feared it would inflame tensions in the community.
In the end, and against all local opinion, the mosque was built (Phase one – that is)
Today, after phrase five, it is the largest mosque in Western Europe and boasts that it can accommodate 10,000 worshippers.
Our Anti-Mosque campaign here in New Addington was also approached by a Sikh gentleman who told us that he had recently been assaulted by six members of the new mosque in London Road, opposite Mayday hospital (currently in phrase three of five), and who runs the mosque in London Road? Al-Ahmadiyya!!! That’s who!
An important fact to note that recently came to light (which was printed in the Advertiser) is that fake and unused passports were found in the London Road mosque, which is run by Al-Ahmadiyya.
So just to set the record straight about our being accused of racial politics; we have had many BME Christians who have signed our petition as well as members of the Asian community AND concerned MUSLIMS!!
After we were approached, all of us as local BNP New Addington residents brought our experience to bear to aid our community.
STEP ONE is always the gathering of local signatures and gauging of public opinion. That was easy, local people were queuing 3-deep to sign our community petition and public opinion was overwhelmingly against a mosque being built here in our hometown. Two thousand signatures gathered in just a matter of weeks.
STEP TWO is the holding of a public meeting in which all sides concerned can come together to discuss the issue.
This we arranged by booking the ACA for the community meeting, on 17th August @ 4pm.
Just for the record, we have sent invited to all the councillors concerned on an almost daily basis over the last 3 weeks with no reply at all coming back from those who were elected to represent us. We also have tried to contact the Imams of Al-Ahmadiyya sect repeatedly – also to no avail.
We have liaised with the police who were happy for our public meeting to go ahead.
STEP THREE – as we planned it, had two main goals; the first goal was to force those elected to represent us to listen to public concern and make representation on the residents’ behalf to the Imams to politely tell them that New Addington is not a suitable place for them to build their mosque, and that alternative sites should be considered.
Our second goal for the public meeting was to ask residents from the community who had suitable knowledge in planning applications and emergency vehicle access etc to come forward and form a committee which would be completely free of any BNP involvement and to carry the campaign forward, should the Imams ignore the wishes of our community and seek planning permission for a mosque here in our hometown.
This is the situation as it stands on the night of 14th August…
The attitude of this Labour council seems to be,
“RIGHT WE’VE GOT YOUR VOTE, SO NOW BE GOOD LITTLE CITIZENS AND KEEP QUIET WHILE WE SPEND THE NEXT 3 YEARS DOING OUR BEST TO DISMANTLE YOUR ENGLISH CULTURE AND HERITAGE AND TURN NEW ADDINGTON INTO A THIRD WORLD SLUM LIKE THORNTON HEATH.
YES, IT WILL HAVE BLACK GANGS TERRORIZING THE SHOPS AND PEOPLE , AND YES, OF COURSE THERE WILL BE STREET VIOLENCE AND DRUGS, BUT HEY – AT LEAST THEY’LL VOTE LABOUR!”
