Whilst many activists were busy in Oldham with the by-election this weekend further down south in Milton Keynes a second demo against a proposed mosque in Bletchley was taking place. The Plough public house on Manor Rd has gone the way of many pubs of late and called last orders for the last time. The pub including car park was then bought by Muslims who intend to convert the site into a mosque. Needless to say many locals were unhappy about this development and have turned to the BNP to help oppose the plans. The main con/dem/lab gang are too terrified of tackling this issue and desperately do not wish to upset the ethnic vote. Some 130 plus residents and BNP activists staged a colourful and peaceful demo from 1.30pm till 3.30pm. Passing motorists expressed their support with their car horns and gave the demo the thumbs up. In the photo can be seen the Coventry contingent made up of 3 from Coventry, one from Rugby and one from Stratford. However judging by the head wear one may have been from Mexico!!! Many thanks to all who attending including Terry and Pea who provided various snacks including of course bacon sandwiches.
Other Coventry activists led by Cov Organiser Tom Gower and a team from Stoke on Trent led by Councillor Mike Coleman attended Oldham today to help in the Important By Election. A report from Tom and Mike to follow shortly.
