British Political Prisoner Emma West To Remain In Custody Until January 3rd; British National Party Says West's Incarceration Politically Motivated

Note: All previous posts on this case can be viewed simultaneously under the Emma West label in reverse chronological order.

Emma West, considered a political prisoner by many of her supporters, has been ordered held in prison until her next scheduled hearing on January 3rd. On December 6th 2011, magistrates decided to refuse Emma West’s bail application submitted by her solicitor, David Ewings, after they heard she had received death threats and that her address had been circulated on social networking sites Facebook and Twitter. There were outbursts from supporters of Miss West, who shouted "treason" as she was denied bail at Croydon Magistrates’ Court.

After the video in which Emma West appeared was played in court, West initially pleaded not guilty. However, when she returned to the court room after a short recess, her not guilty plea was rescinded due to an administrative error. Court records were amended to show she has not yet indicated a plea. She has been charged with a racially aggravated public order offence.

On the surface, it looks like there is some merit to the magistrates' decision to keep West locked up. Spiked-Online documented hundreds of physical threats against West after the video was released; police probably would have been required to mount a full-time presence around her Croydon neighborhood to protect her had she been released. But she still shouldn't have been arrested in the first place; it was her arrest that revealed her identity to the public and exposed her to public danger. Disgustingly, Gavin Barwell, Conservative MP for Croydon Central, actually praised social media for their role in exposing Emma West; he told MPs that the YouTube footage demonstrated how the internet could be used to help solve crime. Barwell said "On a positive note, does this not show the power of social media both in allowing a suspect to be caught and in showing the vast majority of Croydon residents do not share these views?"

But support for Emma West is picking up and being openly expressed. On December 2nd, 20 people held a quiet protest outside HMP Bronzefield calling for her release. The protest was organized on very short notice by Britain First. Meanwhile, the British National Party has ratcheted up its support for West, sending a delegation to court to witness the proceedings. The BNP says the excuses and explanations given to keep Emma West behind bars are totally, utterly and completely refuted by Emma West’s relatives, who say there have been no threats made against West and her family. Consequently, the supposed danger against Emma West may have been fabricated by the Crown Prosecution Service as an excuse to justify a political decision.

Those who would like to write to Emma West or send her a Christmas card can send correspondence to the following address:

HMP Bronzfiled
Woodthorpe Road

Meanwhile, Birmingham Nationalist reports that a gang of Muslim girls who repeatedly kicked a young woman in the head were not detained, not even for their own "protection". They were allowed to walk free from court after a judge heard they were not used to being drunk because of their religion. The group screamed "kill the white slag" while kicks raining in on 22-year-old Rhea Page as she lay motionless on the ground. The attackers - three sisters and their cousin -- were given suspended sentences.
