Red-White-and-Blue — August 15th - 17th

By News Team August 5, 2008

All Set For the Best RWB Ever — But we need YOU there to help show the Labour council that nothing stops the BNP!

More! That's the word to sum up this year's RWB Family Festival! More fun. More stalls. More politics. More fairground rides. More food variety. More camping space. More great speakers. More for EVERYONE to do.

All this despite the fact that our organisers this year have had to work extra hard to overcome the most disgraceful Labour council bullying and obstruction. It seems that every time Labour's own woes hit the headlines their councillors and bureaucrats get even more spiteful towards the BNP.

As a result, and despite the fact that there has never been any trouble at the RWB, we have been banned from having live bands playing and from selling alcohol. Despite the outrageousness of the situation we will not be defying these rules in any way.

There will be even more on to do and watch than ever, but some of it will be new and different from previous years when live bands dominated the running order. There will still be plenty of incidental background music, as this is totally legal as long as it is recorded, spontaneous or culturally educational. And there'll be more to see than ever.

We've got a record number of stalls booked, the best line-up of top speakers ever. We've added 2,000 square feet of extra marquee space for the Traditional Food Hall alone.

You can sit and chat with friends at the coffee shop with proper china mugs and a panini or a crepe, or watch the BNP Morris Dancing Side, or take part in a serious discussion on the possibilities of Home-Schooling. Plus the old favourites: Football competition, tug-o-war, Punch & Judy Show, children's parade and a firework display.

And you've still got time to sort out your entries for the new competitions: Child's drawing of the RWB; Child's poem about the RWB; adult poem or short prose essay on the RWB; Best traditional home-brewed bottle (beer, wine, cider, whatever - if you make it, we'll judge it); Best home-brew bottle from kit.

You can bring as much of your favourite tipple with you for you and your friends as you like, but none is to be sold in any way, including via old tricks on the lines of “A free pint with every £2.50 matchbox”. So please don't bring alcohol to sell, as we will only have to stop you from putting the entire great weekend at risk.

In a way, the ban on live music is going to do us a favour. It's made us think long and hard about how to keep the RWB developing as an event where people - especially kids - get to do fun things rather than watching others. It's making us concentrate more on real British culture, on fun traditions, on positive politics, on education - on the things, in fact, that make the RWB different from any other event in the country.

So make it a long weekend. Join all the campers and caravaners arriving on Friday. The Food Hall and all sorts of attractions will already be open and entertaining BNP members and guests. Buy your tickets on the gate. We look forward to seeing you there.

  1. I am really looking forward to my first RWB!! There will be three of us attending, myself, the other half and our 5 year old son who is soooo excited!! We all really can't wait, it is going to be great!

    We're looking forward to it too, Debs. - Ed

  2. Oh, they are getting nasty aren't they? Nothing said about the Glastonbury drug fest and crackheads out of their brains on crack and hard liquor whilst shooting up in their tents and leaving the place looking like a tip, and a few stabbings for good measure, nice to be wanted isn't it, just a good family affair with people who happen to love their country, but there, thats what they are afraid of isn't it, good honest British stalwarts having a knees up and causing no trouble. Funny old country isn't it where evil is good and good is evil. Anyway have a great time and enjoy it, I will be there in spirit.

    ………… I wonder if the same negative attention will be given to the upcoming Notting Hill Carnival - er sorry, it's just ‘Carnival' now. - Ed

  3. Labour are messing their pants if this is how low they are stooping, I thought that after the next election they would be the third party but this shows that they really fear becoming the fourth party after the BNP. Roll on the next election!!.

  4. And if someone spontaneously brought the old 12 string out of the boot and spontaneously started bashing out some good old cultural classic folk tunes and people spontaneously started to join while enjoying a tankard of home brew……….

    “Nil desparandum, illegitimo carborundum”.

    Best of luck and have a wonderful time………

  5. Can I urge anyone who hasn't attended a RWB to make the effort and go. It's great and you won't be disappointed. Oh, and I'll be there, come up and give me some money if you like !!!

  6. Alexander Solzhenitsyn died the other day but I'm sure the spirit of this man, who suffered under Marxist tyranny, will enthuse those at the RWB festival despite the efforts of the Red Fascist totalitarians of Zanu Labour to stop ordinary decent British folk enjoying themselves the way they have done for generations.

    These mentally-sick spiteful leftists only succeed in making true British patriots even more determined to thwart their evil plans for the destruction of Great Britain. So have a great day. Raise a glass to freedom and enjoy.

  7. I think we can take advantage of the ban on live music to introduce some folk and morris recorded songs and tunes. It gives us two days to introduce a variety of British music in a nice environment.

    Regarding having a tipple: people can still enjoy this by bringing their own.

    It looked bad initially when the local Trosky councillors placed these restrictions , but as the old saying goes ‘ we shall overcome.'

  9. Five murders and years of riots later, the Notting Hill Carnival still continues with trouble each year, the police are now told to IGNORE all non violent offences.

    What utter hypocrisy !

    RWB, At last a truly wonderful British event for all the family.

  10. A ban on live music? For what reason? That is an outrage and we should kick up a huge fuss about it. It's a disgrace, an attack on peaceful activity, a politically-motivated restriction that should be challenged in every way possible. Presumably these ‘councillors' only approve of the right kind of role-model: half dead from drink and drug addiction, and totally stupid.

    This ban should not be allowed to stand. If they get away with banning music, they'll be banning people from talking next. I swear, I used to live in a free country; now I know I don't.

  11. Well who were the Labour Party People behind these actions?

    Posted by Robert Blatchford | August 5, 2008, 5:19 pm
  12. This is New Labour showing their true colours. For the last eleven years they've been throwing their own festival - the Red, Red & Red, but it's all over now. They've just got enough time left to clear up the mess and put the tables and chairs back behind the stage - although in reality they'll leave the hall in a mess so that the Tories, who've booked the hall next, will have to sweep up the crap (and then make their own mess).

    Yes, this is True Labour. They were never interested in helping the British people, nor were they interested in democracy, justice or fair play. They were only ever interested in power. And now that it's slipping through their grubby fingers they show themselves to be petty, vindictive and generally ungracious in defeat. We can expect a lot more of this sort of sullen spitefulness over the remaining 18 months or so, as the New Labour beast gets ever more desperate!

  13. The BNP should not take this ban lying down. It's surely a matter of principle. Can we have an address for these jumped-up squirts? I'd like to give them a dose of venom, they've asked for it.

    Posted by apendragon | August 5, 2008, 5:27 pm
  14. Well, I can feel a little “spontaneous” music is most definitely in order. Howsabout a 5-string banjo, guitars and flute (s) for starters? Maybe a harmonica?

    Nice educational folk music. Mining songs, fishing songs, sea shanties.. We'll get the kids singing..and their mums and dads joining in :^)

    How many musicians do we have in the BNP anyway? I'll bet it's more than most political parties..

  15. Even though there is a ban on live performances and I am no longer officially performing it's not gonna stop me attending at all! Me and a large group of friends are really excited about the event.

    And so what if I just happen to play my guitar and sing to myself and a group of people happen to gather round?

  16. I'm so jealous, as I was really hoping to attend for the first time this year, but my holidays haven't coincided with the RWB. Next year, I'm booking two weeks off mid-August, just to be on the safe side.

    To those who are going - good for you! Hope you have a terrific time and I'll see you there in 2009.

    -

    Have a good holiday, and hope to see you at the tenth RWB anniversary, Legend - Ed

  17. Unfortunately I will be on another continent during this great event, but wish all attendees a most enjoyable time. This is a celebration of family, as in spouses and children, parents and siblings etc as well as our larger family of the four nations of our islands. I hope it is a massive and huge success and a sign to the degenerates in power who promote entirely different and destructive policies. A ban on live music? How pathetically overbearing and controlling, even from the NuLab Stasi. But well done for obeying even this biased effort to quash the event. Looking forward to the program on BNPtv on the success of RWB, also details of the planning, naming names and the obstructions placed by them. Give this plenty of publicity, please, and show up Liebore for what it is. Not that many people are in doubt these days …

    -

    Thanks, PJD. Zanulab don't like the idea of families getting together for a peaceful weekend. There'll be no such restrictions on their notting hill caper though. - Ed

  18. If I'd had more time, I would do what I'm planning for some of our socials in the Black Country… A Youtube large screen and music disco. This would have simply required a laptop, and a couple of good speakers set up to it, and type in whatever music we liked.. Youtube is world-wide, and in the public domain.

  19. Wish I could be there but am in Wales with my son during that time!

    Just been brushing up on my history though - History does repeat itself - this is what Winston Churchill wrote about Ethelred the Unready (viking invasion 954 AD) - Ethelred was a weakling, a vacillator, a faithless feckless creature. Remind you of anyone we know?

  22. Myself and Mrs baccy_tin are very much looking forward to it.

    One wonders what sort of minds would want to thwart a family weekend away from the enrichment gulags. Quite a contrast with ZaNuLabs lavishly (taxpayer) funded Notting Hill stab ‘n drug fest. Still, if that's what they prefer they are welcome to it.

    We would rather be with you at the Red White ‘n Blue :-)

  23. Ed, sorry but I don't know where else to ask this. How's the campaign to buy the Truth Truck coming along and when will we be seeing it on the road?

    - Hi Bigglez, Sorry, but I am but a humble Ed, so I am not party to this information. However, I will pass the question on to those that will, hopefully, be able to put some info. together. -Ed

  24. I hope to attend, for the first time. Should be an oasis of sanity and optimisim in a country where much of the population is becoming divided over the question of multiculturalism and identity. It will be a morale boost to be around happy people sharing the same values i.e. who care about the welfare and identity of their own nation while most of the masses don't. Let's just hope the event is blessed by fair weather.

  25. Let's be honest, it's not just the Labour council who have behaved appallingly. Derbyshire Police have opposed the live music and alcohol licences too - on the flimsiest of pretexts. Quite why they imagine the absence of a live music licence is going to help protect the RWB is beyond me. The truth, of course, is that senior police officers are nowadays far more interested in enforcing political correctness than in maintaining law and order.

    Here in Manchester, the local police intervened shamelessly in the May election campaign and their Derbyshire colleagues have proved to be every bit as biased and prejudiced.

    For the record, I hadn't intended to come to RWB this year. But just to spite the local council and their pc police allies, I intend to come with guests.

    You would think that these Establishment grunts would have grasped by now that using unfair means to attack us only strengthens our resolve and increases our support!

  27. Never mind, New Labour is only jealous and worried that they're gonna be losing out to the BNP more and more as time goes on. They can't organise a decent get-together in a beer-producing establishment, even with shambling Pete Doherty and Amy Wineskin. They just can't take it that the BNP will have a wonderful time without drugs and crime. Simply because drugs and crime gravitate towards the lawless and inefficient Liblabcon. Maybe you should have asked Britain's first and only Parliamentary rock band MP4 to play - they could probably have pulled a few G strings with the council in their exemplary Troughminster way. On second thoughts, better the way it is. A spontaneous burst of singing from Joey Smith - much more enjoyable. Anyway, this bash will probably end up in credit, unlike B. Liar's farewell tour bill for over 700,000 pounds!

    Posted by SheriffofNottingham | August 5, 2008, 9:16 pm
  28. As was to be expected, the despicable behaviour of the Labour council is nothing short of immature. No alcohol for sale? It's not the end of the world, and there's nothing to stop a person giving a new found friend a free drink, is there?

    Again, best wishes :)

  31. Re: live music banned. I think it was on Simon Darby's blog that the possibility was raised about the Derbyshire Constabulary therefore arresting RWB attendees for singing hymns at the Sunday morning service.

    One commentator said that it is (still) illegal in England to disrupt a worship service but the possibility remains that the police may descend on worshippers as they leave the tent at the end of the service.

    It is to be hoped this doesn't happen but as I indicated on Martin Wingfield's blog, this possible situation hasn't arisen in the mainland part of the British Isles since about the late 17th century, with the attempted suppression of dissenters from the then C of E (e.g. John Bunyan and other Congregationalists) and the persecution of the Covenanters in Scotland by Charles II and James II.

    Interesting times.

  37. Good one Ed but I prefer “stringalong a tax”.

    Posted by crispy | August 6, 2008, 9:06 am
  38. That “stringalong a tax” quote from crispy is, I think, a reference to LingaLongaMax (Bygraves) and his TV show and LP of the same name. Well as Max is a supporter of our Troops and has appeared and sung at the Festival of Remembrance, I think he deserves a plug.

    I don't think Max would be all that interested in singing for the Pigs of Parliament but he might be interested in helping us with some stringing, as in 'stringing up' when the Pigs' time comes; as it inevitably will, as sure as the BNP's bright day follows their dark night.

    Anyone sick of all the LIES, spin and dross on TV, especially the NO PLATFORM policy for the BNP from BBC, SKY and the rest, should try the following link called tellyads. It's TV without the boring, spinning, lying, brainwashing bits in the middle - I mean the programmes.

  39. Good luck for the RWB Festival and I hope it is a resounding success.

    That part of England has many poignant memories for me. Close by is the Midland Railway site at Butterley near Ripley, redolent of English engineering success and history. This was where my late daughter had her wedding reception in May 1993, on a preserved steam train called the ‘Wedding Belle'. Sadly, she didn't see her 10th wedding anniversary. But she was English to her fingertips. David Nieper, a small English clothing company is near Somercotes - beautiful ladies' clothing made locally, not cheap imports from eastern sweat-shops. The Denby Pottery - again, English enterprise and business acumen. Goods made on site and not imported from China.

    I hope you have the CDs of Show of Hands - ‘Witness'. And also The Boscastle Busker, and The Dalesfolk. And Chris Woods ‘Trespasser'. Chris reckons we have all been made into ‘trespassers' in our own land, especially since enclosures and events since then. - Love Show of Hand. Other points..yes, we are aware of -Ed

    Posted by margrete | August 6, 2008, 2:18 pm
  40. Thanks, Ed.

    We recently drove up to Lowestoft to see the replica Viking ship, the ‘Sea Stallion', now probably safely back at her base in Roskilde fjord. On the way we passed the site of a music festival called ‘Latitude', from where the BBC did some live broadcasts.

    If this is allowed, live music broadcast on the BBC, why not the RWB?

    Can I just correct Paganpete above - the English king usually called Ethelred the Unready wasn't so much unready as ill-advised. It would have been Aethelraed Unraed. This was an Old English play on his name (Unraed=badly-advised, without counsel) a bit like B-Liar in modern terms!

    Posted by margrete | August 6, 2008, 2:47 pm
  41. In a sense, the ban on alcohol sales and live music will only serve to make this fantastic event appear even more ‘wholesome' and appealing to large swathes of the community. The detractors and naysayers of the politically correct mob have probably done more to promote this than most. They just don't get it. We'll probably have coachloads of W.I. (don't underestimate their political clout) rolling in for tea, scones and a bit of Morris dancing. The kids can have just as much fun, and the grown-ups can have a civilized tipple of their choice, with friends, if they so wish. It's going to be wonderful. Now THAT is enrichment.

  42. @ margrete

    I was caught be your reference to “trespassers in our own land”. It came to my attention a while ago that most of the land in Britain is not registered - only land passed over in a sale is actually registered. Now they are trying to restrict our access to our own rivers and countryside. The Rivers Access Campaign and the UK Photographers Rights group are fighting to preserve our rights in this respect. Did you know about the law passed in 2000, following pressure from landowning groups (!), such that all pre-1949 public rights of way not formally recorded by 1 January 2026 will be forever extinguished, all 20,000 of them? Take a look at the Countdown 2025 Campaign of the Ramblers Association, if you can't believe it. Don't remember being consulted or informed by our political representatives, do you?

    Posted by SheriffofNottingham | August 6, 2008, 6:19 pm
  43. @SheriffofNottingham

    Thank you for this. No, I didn't know all of this. I picked up this comment ‘trespassers in our own land' from Chris Woods' CD ‘Trespasser' - he points that out very strongly, with songs about John Ball, John Clare, and a Cotswold resident with a yuppie couple who want to buy his old house and land, and he tells them why not.

    I did not know about the 2000 law and its implications. But my late daughter, to whom I referred above, would have been very interested, because this formal recording was what she was engaged on at the time of her death at the end of 2002. Only 6 weeks before, she'd been appointed to the job of rights-of-way officer for Notts County Council and half her time was spent in looking at old maps and the other half going out attending planning meetings and appeals.

    I will get in touch with the Ramblers' Association because one of the things I've tried to do since her death is to carry on, as well as I can, with the things she was interested in. She was passionate about the English countryside and regarded that Notts CC job as her dream job - ‘now I can really do something for the countryside', she said.

    There's an English oak tree planted by the Dumble on Brackenhurst estate in her memory (Brackenhurst, former home of General Allenby of Jerusalem, then an agricultural college, now part of Nottingham Trent University). I give an annual prize there in her memory.

    Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

  46. You Know, I really wasn't intending to go this year for financial reasons but with all this politically motivated persecution I have now changed my mind and decided to take my family again, like last year. Although we were all tired at the end we thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. I hope the RWB is full to bursting this year, whatever the weather is like, because we need to show these Common Purpose Marxist nation-wreckers and soilers of our way of life that we can never be defeated. Why? Because we are Britons and this is OUR Nation. Long live the Red White and Blue.
