"We've had enough already!" Was the regularly repeated response from the public to our leafleting teams across Shropshire as our activists put out new 'Shropshire Partiot' leaflets highlighting the devestating cuts to such things as local jobs, local services and local schools which are set to bite hard in the run up to the 2013 Shropshire County Council elections.
Public anger is increasing dramatically, and a number of Shropshire residents called for more militant action against what many are regarding as an oppressive government regime.
And while the British National Party is set to become more militant, our party's main aim is to take public anger and channel it into peaceful but direct protest.
"It's disgraceful that the Con-Dem coalition is increasing Foreign Aid but at the same time depriving local councils of the funds they need to maintain and improve local services," said North Shropshire British National Party organiser Phil Reddall. "Local County councillors hold their hands up and act as if they can do nothing but make cuts, but these County councillors are part of the same anti-British rotten system that is pouring money into the Third World while our own children worry about whether they will have a local school to attend next year," he continued.
A middle aged resident of Market Drayton summed it up perfectly during a leafleting session last night when he said, "I don't mind helping out other nations with my tax money from time to time but if I see one child upset because his or her school closes around here then my vote will go to the British National Party."
