Today was the funeral of long time BNP activist Mike Shiel, Mike was only 35 when he died and is a great loss to the Nationalist movement. This a very sad time for Mike's family and friends but they gave him a good sendoff with a large BNP presence there including our Chairman Nick Griffin. The funeral saw old members and new members come together to pay their condolences, they come down from places all around the country.
Mike was one of Liverpool BNP's first fund holders during 2003 & 2004 and he was one of the first BNP candidates in Liverpool in 2003 helping to set the foundations of the branch. A popular member, he was at the demonstration outside Halifax police station and was ever present in Leeds during the trial of Nick and Mark.
Nationalists will stand together through life and death!
