Readers should understand some things about this and similar cases.
Firstly, the Establishment are moving these trials around and setting sentencing dates at short notice to attempt to keep these crimes 'under the radar' and stop the BNP demonstrating outside court.
Secondly, it was Shropshire BNP who played a significant role in forcing the Establishment's hand. We leafleted relentlessly in Telford and other Shropshire towns that prompted a significant comment to be made by West Mercia Police Chief Inspector Alan Edwards which the media finally picked up on.
Thirdly, the BNP have campaigned for almost a decade on this issue as it is a nationwide problem and has been for years.
Fourthly, Shropshire BNP knows that this issue hasn't gone away just because a handful of Muslims have been jailed. It is still a big problem on our streets. How do we know this? Because we live in our community, we work in our community, we have friends in our community and we see and hear what goes on in our community. The problems of our nation take place in our community, and we speak out for and on behalf of our community.
