ABEX comes complete with a mission statement:
'The aim of ABEX is to promote and support the welfare of ex forces personnel and their dependants, and those organizations whose agents have risked life and limb in the service of this country, through democratic representation to ensure fair and equitable treatment within our society.'
In common with every other organisation the BNP has set up in the past ten years, the BNP states that ABEX 'is not a BNP group' and that it is an 'independent and non-party political association'. Strange then, that it has been a BNP-run 'circle' for the past three years - at least according to the last three sets of accounts submitted to the Electoral Commission (2003-5) - under the care of BNP-terrorist Tony Lecomber and subsequently Sadie Graham, following Lecomber's sacking as Group Development Officer last year.
Even more strange is the statement that ABEX is 'a non profit organisation and [is] applying for Charity status at this time'. Obviously it hasn't got it. If it had, the Charity Registration number should be shown on its website and it isn't. Not that ABEX has a hope in hell of gaining charitable status (as the BNP well knows) because groups run by political parties are not allowed to be charities.
This group that is not a BNP front-group is so independent that it intends to have a stand at the party's annual Red, White and Blue booze-fest this weekend, presumably alongside that other well-known not a BNP front-group Solidarity 2, its fake union...
