Regular readers of this blog will know that it is not my intention to cause needless offence.
Consequently, I have today taken down all of my posts from 19th May 2008 onwards regarding the letter I received from Camerons Brewery relating to its tenanted public house the Wheatsheaf in Chilton, and the display of BNP material in its windows during May’s local elections. I have done this after receiving a letter from the brewery’s solicitors advising me of the Brewery's concerns about my comments and requesting that they be removed. As you might expect, I have taken expert legal advice myself. My lawyers are satisfied that I was entitled to publish what I had stated.
I accept that Camerons Brewery does not have any particular political inclinations. I also accept that neither Camerons nor Mr Soley have done anything to suggest that they condone racism and it was never my intention to suggest that either the brewery or Mr Soley are racist. However, in view of Camerons concerns that my comments might be interpreted in that way, I have decided to remove them from this blog.
It does not in any way change my views on the BNP. I shall continue to campaign against this abhorrent political institution.
