Genuine Terror Cell Found

A fascist terror cell which it is reported involved a rocket launcher, a nuclear biological suit, largest haul of chemicals of its kind discovered in the UK and BNP literature has not made it into the meanstream media -- of course, they are white and not innocent.

The record of the media, police and the, so called, "intelligence" agencies is not good, most the muslim terror cells have been faked, fabricated or manufactured by the "intelligence" agencies themselves, see this for more:

But of course these terror plots are newsworthy and all have endless headlines and new coverage, untill they fact that there was no real plot -- this news is buried in small articles.

What happens when a seemingly genuine terror cell is found?

It is reported in the local media:

Chemicals Find: Two In Court

Ex-BNP man held in 'bomb' swoop

And these reports have quotes from the police:


Superintendent Neil Smith moved to reassure residents and stressed: "It is not a bomb making factory" and added that it was not related to terrorism.

"He's not a terrorist and it's not a bomb factory ..."

"He was arrested under the Explosives Act on suspicion of possessing chemical substances that aren't in themselves an offence to possess but if combined may be capable of making an explosion."


So possessing "the largest amount of chemical explosive of its type ever found in the country" *doesn't* consitute a bomb factory?

This is insane.

These are the only media reports that could be found via Google News about this:

The bomb plot that didn’t make the news headlines

Ex-BNP man charged with explosives

White terrorists don’t make the news

Police arrest BNP members with "record haul" of explosives

BNP election candidate arrested in biggest explosives haul ever
Submitted by catch on Wed, 11/10/2006 - 16:45. UK | media and culture | BNP | terrorism
Two men were arrested in Lancashire last week in the biggest explosives haul ever found at a house in the UK.

Robert Cottage (49), of Talbot Street, Colne, and David Bolus Jackson (62), of Trent Road, Nelson, appeared at a Pennine magistrate's court charged under the Explosive Substances Act 1883. Mrs Christiana Buchanan, acting for the prosecution in court, suggested that the pair had "some kind of masterplan".

Chemicals, a rocket launcher, BNP literature and a nuclear biological suit were found in a search of Jackson's house. It is not yet clear what the intended target of the explosives might have been.

Cottage, a sub-contracted driver for Lancashire County Council, was a BNP candidate in the May elections in the Vivary Bridge ward of Colne. Jackson is employed as a dentist. Both men were remanded in custody to appear at Burnley Crown Court on October 23rd.

Local press have reported Cottage as an "ex-BNP" member, however, spoke to Paul Marsh from the anarchist and anti-fascist group Class War, who stated:

"BNP membership runs for the calendar year January to December - as he had to be a member when he stood in the elections in May, he must be a member now.

"Of course the other interesting question is why the few papers covering this story are describing him as an ex-member.

"I assume the two likely sources for this are the BNP themselves or the police. You can understand why the BNP would wish to say this, but the cops?"

This was further confirmed by a quick look at the BNP's own website:

membership is for the 12 months of the calendar year - January to December but those signing up from Oct 1st through to Dec 31st qualify for the following year’s card.

As yet, this story has only been reported in the local press and on a couple of alternative media websites. With the recent media frenzies over the Forest Gate and Walthamstow arrests, there is a clear discrepancy in media treatment of the incident, with no sign of any major media outlets taking any interest at all in what are quite significant events.

Perhaps because the BNP haven't (yet) committed mass murder?

18.10.2006 18:16

Perhaps this is due to the fact that the BNP have not yet blown up trains and trains packed with passengers and carried out countless similar atrocities as the Islamist fanatics have done around the world? The BNP may be a loathesome racist organisation, but anyone with two braincells to rub together and still unimpaired by political correctness can see that Islamists bent on mass-murder are a far greater threat.


the BNP havnt commited mass murder

but their political brothers have. perhaps we have heard of a few genocides in the 20th century by white christians? im not suggesting either side is whiter than white (!) but surley distinguishing the BNP from other racists who have murdered is absurd?
