Thursday 10th January 2013 saw Pete Molloy poll 26.2% in the Tudhoe ward by-election held in Spennymoor, Co. Durham. From a total of 496 valid votes Pete managed to secure 130.
The turnout was only 17.5%, which is less than one in five people who were eligible to vote. The reason for this became clear when speaking to people face to face. Many people are completely disillusioned with the political process.
BNP National Organiser Adam Walker said: “On the doors many people commented that ‘they’ are all as bad as each other. When talking about the three main parties, they are not wrong, of course.
“They all support the illegal wars we are engaged in, they all believe in giving billions away to foreign countries, they all believe in providing an international health service to all and sundry, they support our membership of the EU and they are all happy to let our country be flooded with immigrants, turning parts of it into a third world cesspit. Of course people will say that they are all the same, because they are.
“If there had been another candidate to split the Labour vote, and if more of our supporters were signed up to the postal vote, the result would have been a lot better. Having witnessed the opening of the postal votes, it was apparent that the average age of the postal voter was between 55 and 65 years old.
“Many of these are people who don’t even know why they vote Labour, they just do. Many say they do because they worked in the pit or someone they know did or that their mother would turn in her grave if she knew they voted otherwise.
“All these beliefs came from a time when the Labour party were a party for the working man, before they got into bed with the banksters and forgot who they are. It is hard to believe that some people are still stuck in the same mindset given that the Labour party have played their part in destroying our country.”
Mr Molloy added: “This result is a good indication of how we will do in May, and I would like to thank everyone who voted for me.
“It is great to know that our core vote is still there and growing. Looking to the long term, and with the right measures in place, we will have British National Party councillors on Spennymoor Town Council within five years.
“The main factor in maintaining our support in Spennymoor is that we don’t rest between elections and we work for the benefit of the constituents as if we were already elected councillors. I recommend that all our candidates do likewise to maintain the constituents’ confidence in our abilities.”
