For working class self-organisation and social revolution Issue No 3 April 2007 THE BOMBER ----- In his native South Africa, Lambertus Nieuwhof was convicted for trying to blow up a school. He was involved in activities to escalate racial tentions. Now in Hereford and a member of the BNP he is trying to, start a race war here too. ---- No sooner did the British National Party announce the founding of its Hereford group then one of its key members was exposed as a convicted terrorist. Lambertus Nieuwhof*, a South African immigrant, was part of a plot to blow up a school in South Africa in 1992. He and two other men had targeted the mixed-race school leaving a 25kg bomb, made from stolen explosives, which failed to go off. He later received a 12-month suspended sentence.
Nieuwhof, also known as Bep, is a
leading figure within the BNP and hosts
a number of the party's websites through
his company, Vidronic Online. He was an
activist in Eugene Terre'Blanche's rightwing
Afrikaner Resistance Movement, which
in the early 1990s engaged in a terror
campaign aimed at provoking a race war
between the South African white and black
population. He is now trying to reinvent
himself as a man capable of winning your
votes.
Hitler loving Nieuwhof, along with `Harry'
and `John' (pictured), are founding
members a BNP group in Hereford.

The British National Party (BNP) are a
rag tag party of racist thugs and white
supremacists whose leadership have a
string of serious criminal offences ranging
from bomb making, organising illegal
paramilitary groups and possession of
firearms. In recent years the party have
moved from a strategy of `controlling the
streets' to an approach based around
winning votes at the ballot box.
By the mid 1990s the BNP were unable to
hold stalls and public meetings throughout
much of the country for fear of being on
the wrong end of physical working class
resistance. Now the BNP have donned suits
in the hope that they can gain credibility
amongst the British population and avoid
confrontation with militant anti-fascists.
Instead of blaming capitalism for social
problems (poverty, unemployment, job
insecurity etc.), the BNP like to direct public
anger at racial groups, a tactic used by the
Nazis. While the Nazis blamed the Jews
for the failings of German capitalism, the
BNP blame immigrants and Muslims for
the failings of British capitalism.
Instead of blaming capitalism, an
unstable economic system based on
exploitation of the working class, for
routinely laying off thousands of workers
and paying poverty wages, the BNP blame
immigrants for `taking our jobs'.
Instead of blaming the government for
years of privatisation and under-funding of
the disintegrating health service, the BNP
blame migrant workers, without whom the
NHS would almost certainly collapse.
While posing as a new and radical
solution to our problems, the
BNP are nothing more than the
representatives of the wealthy and the
ruling class. They are the bosses little
helpers weakening social solidarity and
dividing the working class along lines of
nationality and fuelling racial tensions.
When we are divided, we are weak. We
end up fighting amongst ourselves for
the crumbs that fall off the bosses table,
leaving the ruling class to continue their
assaults on the working class. When we
are divided, we can't fight back.
We mustn't forget that Adolf Hitler himself
said: "The only way we [the Nazis] could
have been stopped is if our enemies had
smashed us on the street from day one"
*Lambertus Nieuwhof can be contacted at his home: 101 Crossways,
