Regular readers may be disappointed to hear this news, but it is important to remember one thing: your local BNP have fought hard and won a very significant victory. Until now, 'Muslim prayer centre' approval had merely gone before non-elected planners. But the Shrewsbury prayer centre plan changed all that as we, along with many ordinary local people, helped to force councillors to make the decision to approve the plans.
This is what Shropshire BNP have fought for since day one - full electoral accountability so we can now point the finger of blame at councillors who are aiding the advance of Islam in Shropshire.
Way back on Thursday 9th May, BNP organiser for north Shropshire wrote one of the first objections to the Shrewsbury prayer centre plans, which can be found here:
"In a previous and very similar case 12/04730/FUL [the earlier Oswestry prayer centre plans] the decision to grant a 'change of use' of a religious nature was made by unelected planning officers.
In this case, whatever the outcome, I, as a concerned member of the electorate, demand that any decisions made in relation to this case are made by elected councillors at an open meeting where local residents are able to comment via a Public Forum.
In any matter such as this, where the cultural atmosphere, identity or feel of a locality could be significantly changed, it is absolutely essential that the decisions are made in a democratic manner, which means by elected members of the Council with members of the Public present.
Finally, I object on the moral grounds of unwanted cultural change."
We have flushed out the pro-Islamic agenda of Shropshire councillors, and as our man in the Public Meeting observed, not a single elected representative spoke up on behalf of those who had objected. If you object to the Islamification of Shropshire, do not vote for pro-Islamic councillors.
"It's a Bloody Mosque, Innit!"
Those were the words of a local man walking his dog past the new 'prayer centre' in Shrewsbury last Saturday afternoon.
In the past, Shropshire BNP have been critiscised for caling proposed prayer centres 'mosques'. However, after a few minutes researching the word 'mosque' in various reputable dictionaries, we find our initial description is correct.
The Cambridge dictionary states here that a mosque is "a building for Islamic religious activities and worship" while the Oxford dictionary states here that a mosque is "a Muslim place of worship".
So from now on, we'll be using the word Mosque. Don't blame us because it's true.
