BNP win another councillor

From report by Dave Landau

Very bad news in that the Goresbrook by-election in Dagenham took place this Thursday where the BNP won by a huge majority taking 51.9% of the vote.  It gets worse - there is another by-election on 7 October and the campaign has already started.  Only three parties standing - BNP, Labour and Tories. 

Help their campaign by turning out to help local UAF activists leaflet the area.
