BNP info-line
The BNP has a recorded phone line to convey its message to members. The Director of Information Technology, Simon Darby, updates it on a daily basis.

The infoline contains a daily news digest and party plans for meetings. Darby runs the service from his home in the West Midlands.

On the 14th November 2001, it was reported that Nick Griffin had attended a meeting of the North West London branch.

The info line also said that the BNP had gained "splendid" newspaper coverage in connection with what Darby called its "anti-islamification campaign".

Religious campaign

audio Info-line message for Thursday 20 September 2001
The party has been campaigning in schools in the Wolverhampton area. White parents are encouraged by the BNP to exercise their rights to remove children from Religious Education lessons if references to Islam were made.

The BNP has adopted a firm anti-Islam stance since September 11th. In the week following the terrorist attacks, the info line reported Muslim celebrations that had taken place around the country.

The Infoline also includes a "CD track of the month". The track for September 2001 was "Europa Calling" and was described as "experimental." The previous track of the month was by the Coventry band, Avalon.

Avalon have performed at a number of Combat 18 organised concerts. Their first song was called "C18 are calling."
