IT APPEARS, THE BRITISH NATIONAL PARTY ARE OPERATING SECRETLY IN RURAL DEVONSHIRE
The far right, white nationalist, fascist political party, the BNP (British National Party) are secretly operating in rural Devonshire.
The BNP might not be officially dead as of yet, but the party has become almost irrelevant and over the years has declined in popularity. From 563,743 votes in 2010, the party won only 4,642 votes in the general election last year. It has collapsed from 338 councillors to zero and lost both its European Parliament seats to boot. It is fair to say that the group has become fairly insignificant on the British political scene.
With the results of Brexit, many UKIP supporters decided to jump ship. The primary goal of UKIP was to always push for the independence of the United Kingdom, with that goal now achieved, many UKIP members have returned to other political parties, this is evident with the poor performance of UKIP in the 2017 general election. The BNP received very few votes in the 2015 general election, yet doubled their votes in this year’s general election, it isn’t unreasonable to think that this could be due to the decline in the UKIP supporters.
The British National Party has received a lot of backlash over the years for their fascist and far-right extremist views. As such the party has often been forced to go underground and host meetings and conferences in complete secrecy to avoid the attention of both the public and the media.
Free & Fearless have received information, from an anonymous source, that the British National Party are operating secretly in rural Devonshire in the quiet little town of Kenn.
Below you can see a document advertising the meeting of Drake’s Drum Forum, which at first glance would appear to be a quaint rural club, meeting at a country inn, in the village of Kenn, just outside Exeter in Devon.
If the group’s name wasn’t suspect enough, Drake’s Drum Forum, which originates from the tale of Sir Francis Drake.
As the tale goes, when Drake died his body was placed in a lead coffin and given to the sea off Portobello. Whilst on his deathbed he ordered that his drum be taken and hung in Buckland Abbey near Plymouth where it hangs today. He vowed that if England should ever be in danger from a foe and someone were to beat upon the drum he would return again to defend her shores.
Some may say that the choice in name is completely innocent and that may be the case if it wasn’t for this newsletter, published by the Drake’s Drum Forum.
There is little doubt from the content of this newsletter, that Drake’s Drum Forum is indeed a racist group that provides a meeting place and sanctuary for fascists across Devonshire.
To hit the final nail in the coffin, you can see in the below document from the Drake’s Drum Forum 2016 Newsletter, that the group openly admit, in the first paragraph, to being the newsletter for the BNP in the Exeter & District in Devonshire.
It appears as time has gone on, the group has tried to distance or at the very least not open publish, that they have very close ties to the British National Party.
As mentioned above, we can only conclude this is to avoid public, local and media outrage.
Free and Fearless believe that in this day and age fascism should not be accepted in our society. It is clear from some of the content of Drake’s Drum Forum’s newsletters, that they are an inherently racist, extreme and dangerous group. We have no issues with freedom of speech and their right to meet, we do however have an issue with them trying to hide their true motives and intentions.
Free and Fearless believe that any group that has to operate in secrecy, that can not be open and honest about their opinions and intentions, are dangerous. For this reason, we decided to out and expose their attempts to fly under the radar.
