The British National Party launched their 2011 election manifesto in Stoke-on-Trent this lunchtime.
Deputy Leader Simon Darby, along with Party National Organiser Adam Walker joined the leader of Stoke-on-Trent BNP Cllr Michael Coleman to launch the 2011 BNP Election Manifesto 'Putting Local People First'.
After meeting on a Pay & Display car park between Tesco Extra & Matalan, the party comprising of Simon Darby, Adam Walker, 3 of the 5 local BNP councillors, a small hand-full of candidates and supporters flanked by minders walked across Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, to Bennett Precinct.
In a far cry from the 2010 general election manifesto launch which took place in the historic Council Chambers at Stoke-on-Trent City Council with party leader Nick Griffin, in front of the party faithful and national press, today local members of the BNP helped set up 3 banners in front of a small bandstand for Simon Darby, Adam Walker & Michael Coleman to stand in front of to launch the manifesto.
2 anti Fascist protesters turned up and tried to shout down Simon Darby, Adam Walker & Michael Coleman but were blocked by their minders.
The whole launch took no more than 15 minutes, the banners were rolled up and the party walked back to the car park and gave interviews to the few media outlets which were represented.
