Party leader Paul Golding is overwhelmed with the amount of support he has been receiving.
I have spent the day with him and, although he is taking the credible death threat seriously, he is utterly defiant.
It’s hard to imagine walking in Paul’s shoes, even for a day.
Being woken up early in the morning and told there is a “significant” threat to your life from an unknown source would terrify most people.
After a day of investigation, it now seems certain that the threat to Paul’s life comes from one of two possible avenues:
The first, is the far-left, particularly the well-organised and well funded extremists that groups like Hope Not Hate can call upon.
The other alternative, is a terrorist group like ISIS, Al Qaeda or Al-Shabaab.
What our supporters need to realise, is that the police wouldn’t turn up with a “threat to life” warning over a harshly worded tweet or a leftist running his mouth on a blog etc.
These warnings are only given when there is a serious threat to life, like when a terror plot is uncovered.
They are not thrown around like confetti.
Paul’s life is actually in danger right now, it’s as simple as that.
This is not a joke, especially not for Paul.
According to Greater Manchester Police, Paul is “at risk of serious harm.”
We are taking immediate measures to ensure Paul is safe, but to significantly boost his security we need your help.
Even the fire brigade has visited Paul this evening to fit anti-arson devices to his home address:
As we said in the previous email, the last time Paul received a threat like this from the police was when jihadists were caught plotting to chop his head off!
That’s why I want your help this evening.
As you can see below, we have made significant strides today thanks to our loyal supporters:

Every left-winger and Islamist in Britain would celebrate if Paul was assassinated.
Let’s make sure it doesn’t happen.
