The death at such an early age of Jonathan Bowden is a great loss to Nationalism and intellectual thought in this country.
I was privileged to have heard him on several occasions, heard his magnificent speeches and even been "cross examined" by him in a "hostile news" interview to teach me how to manage the media.

To me he was the best and most motivational speaker I ever heard.
He had his beliefs and travelled the country at his own expense to propagate his brand of patriotism.
His speeches were from the heart, serious and mocking at the same time but always inspirational.
I am fortunate to have several recordings of them (they may be sought after in future), and feel privileged to have had him stay at our house when we talked late into the early hours and in the following morning continued the discussion.

I have to admit he was way too clever for me and lost me when talking on matters of philosophy but even then I found him interesting and good company.

He was a man who stuck to his ideas and beliefs, a leader and not a follower. That is the reason I believe he was abandoned by Nick Griffin when scurrious allegations were made against him.

His trouble was that he was too clever, too good a debater and speaker and thus a threat to the more pedestrian and ambitious Griffin.

Jonathan was not ambitious for his own selfish interests, but he showed his ambition for our country by his hard work, travelling the country promoting Nationalism.
He was in effect too intelligent to be coralled into an official party line.

In spite of that he campaigned tirelessly for the BNP and latterly when the Party imploded as a result of chicanery and mis management attended meetings to try and resurrect the nationalist cause.

That he did not rise higher was in my opinion his lack of political ambition and his integrity.
And his intelligence.

He was too bright and intelligent to allow himself to be straightjacketed into any narrow code of belief and action.
He believed in free thought, a free agent but a true patriot and I hope a friend.

He will be sorely missed by me and his many friends in nationalism.


Some interesting facts have been revealed last week on items of expenditure by Wigan MBC from its £130 million budget.
Items of expenditure listed were all for amounts more than £500, some of which look suspicially like freebies for councillors.
A couple of drinks for unpaid councillors I can accept but our councillors are well paid and should in that case pay for their own booze.

But one item of expenditure did astonish me.

A grant has been made to "a  gay music radio station"
We know it is at least £500 but there is no mention of the name of the station.

Wigan was traditionally a mining and engineering town and "gays" were very much the exception rather than the rule.
Those few with an artistic or thespian bent usually did as "Sir" Ian McKellen and sloped off to environments more vibrant and congenial to their lifestyle, leaving us with a town overwhelmingly heterosexual.

As far as a radio station is concerned I was not aware that the difference between those of un natural sexual proclivities and normal people extended to music.
I thought (apart from pornographic homoerotic songs) that music tastes were generally similar.

I have nothing against homosexuals doing what they want in private but I don't know where the ruling Labour group got the idea that council tax payers would welcome their hard earned money being squandered in that way as frontline services are cut.
Why should people making use of a different orifice for sex justify a subsidy?
Perhaps the council are chasing "the gay vote".

If so they will be disappointed but in any case why should they care. It is not their money they are wasting,IT'S OURS.

I know in the context of £130 million the money donated is a small amount, but what about all the other ways in which they waste money?

I know they spend £millions on housing immigrants in houses which were built for us.
I do not know whether Elliot Brown is till employed, the man who said that Wiganers were inbred and needed an infusion of  foreign blood, and if justice had been done would have been prosecuted for racism.

All these are un necessary burdens on our council tax payers and together must add up to a huge cost.

Who decides these expenditures and grants? Certainly not the voters.
