My protest letter at the 1991 Gulf War is where my political journey started. Prior to this I was not a political person at all. The first political party that I belonged to was the Liberal Democrats, I joined in 1994. A couple of days after the 911 attack, when after what I had warned against had come to pass,
I joined the BNP - British National Party.
I have paid a terrible price ( And I am still paying today ) for writing this protest letter about my country going to war. Written in my own country, in my own home town, about my country going to war.

Dear Mr Bryson
Thank you for your letter which I have read with interest. Now that Iraqi forces have been ousted from Kuwait we must look carefully at a number of problems in region, not least of which is the Palestinian problem.
Whilst I can appreciate your feelings on this matter, I am convinced that there is little point in disputing the desirability of the existance of a Jewish State in Israel. That state exists and will continue to do so. Any policy towards the Middle East must take that one basic fact as a starting point.
