Today 10 Activists from Liverpool British National Party took the European Election campaign to Aintree races. The 10 activists distributed over 3000 of the EU and British Jobs for British Workers leaflets to a very receptive public.
The positive response far outweighed the negative, it was hard for the 10 activists to keep up with the speed of the movement of the crowds. However what was clear is that we made our presence felt and seen to the public.
Merseyside police also kept their interference to a minimum probably not wanting a repeat of what happened after the Liverpool 13 arrests. This was the first of many high profile events planned by the branch at the last activists meeting last Thursday and as it was such short notice it was good to get 10 activists and so many leaflets onto the streets.
What was also good to see was the number of members of the public who came up and told us they were already members of the party, clearly a sign of how the British National Party is growing.
