BNP Blog Scrubs Baptist Chapel Reference

Original version, at the pro-BNP Leicestershire Community Voice:

This morning, worshippers from many parts of Leicestershire gathered at the Baptist Chapel, [location redacted] to take part in a Service conducted by Rev. Robert West of Lincolnshire.

New version:

This morning, worshippers from many parts of Leicestershire gathered at a Baptist Chapel to take part in a Service conducted by Rev. Robert West of Lincolnshire.

Old version:

Footnote: By preaching at [the chapel], Rev. West follows in the footsteps of the notable Leicestershire clockmaker and Baptist pastor, Samuel Deacon (1746-1816). The Chapel itself is a Victorian gem, maintained in superb style by a dedicated handful of local people. The pews are original, there is seating for 800 worshippers on 2 levels, a beautiful carved pulpit, and still retains a church organ, which it is hoped will one day be heard again. Do visit,or attend a Sunday Service and, if you are part of Barton’s community, treasure this lovely old building in your midst.

This “footnote” has now been removed, along with a picture of the chapel.

I blogged on this event here. The unrevised version is still available at other far-right sites.

UPDATE: I’ve now found some clues as to how and why this event took place.
