EXCLUSIVE: Bow Group Under Spotlight as Video Emerges of Heavy Handed Tactics During AGM.

VIDEO EVIDENCE has emerged that seems to show heavy handed tactics being used at Bow Group elections at its AGM in 2010, which were covered in The Guardian, TBG can exclusively reveal.

The footage looks as if it depicts a cameraman asking the Bow Group's current leader some questions at the 2010 AGM only for some heavies, under orders, to immediately tumble the camera operator from the room.

A voice in the video is sensationally heard asking - "Are you going to fight me, this is your glorious election night."

The Bow Group havn't had any elections since 2011 when its current Leader was elected and a "Sullivan, Rimmer & co" slate was allegedly "banned" from standing, according to sources.

The Bow Group didn't help me find my freedom. I was made to watch as James snorted lines of crunched up Quavers off of BHQ's shiny dome.

I was at that AGM, many years ago, and this is a load of nonsense - clearly designed to mislead.

The sad murmurings of the faux-think tank Parliament Street who remain bitter about their own idiocy.

Ben Harris-Qunney adopted Raheem as his pet from the Henry Jackson animal shelter.

3 years without an AGM! More Urquhart than Thatcher!

Since BHQ arrived the Bow Group has stopped having elections. When will BHQ call an election?

This is why it's now referred to as The Ben Group. Harris-Quinney is a shameless self-publicist who needs to go.

Thank fuck for Parliament Street. Bow Group is weird sinister and nasty.

Question BHQ and the bouncers will haul you out of the building. Will this skinhead ever have an election?

This is very silly. I hope to clear things up.

Everyone who was legitimately proposed and seconded by a Bow Group members was in the ballet to join The Bow Group council, people from both slates were elected.

Saying that most of Patrick Sullivan slate could not stand in the ballet as Pat was a lapsed member and had not renewed his membership for two year before the EGM. He did transfer money into the account of the former Returning Officer (who stood down before the election) account; this dose not qualify as renewing his membership as to the rules of the group.

As Pat was the either the proposer or seconder to most people in his slate there nomination became void. Pat could not gain entry into the room due to it being a AGM and he was not a member of The Bow Group.

The whole thing was a bit school boy and silly as this blog seems to be. I'm happy to say since then The Bow Group has gone from being very much in the red and not producing any policy papers to having a very healthy accounts and producing policy which have influenced the national debt. I point to the papers on the badger cull, HS2, Royal Mail and my War Graves paper.

I don't think Ballet is really Pat's thing but really Nick, me saying such a thing would be as unfair a comment as the one you just made.

The returning officer was changed last moment by BHQ to void Pat out of the race and the whole affair was scandalous from start to finish. BHQ has refused to hold and election, an AGM or an EGM. He has destroyed the Bow Group and its founding aims and objectives, but the sad truth is nobody cares anymore. That is the greatest damage he is done in proving to everyone how irrelevant the Bow Group had become, that when put to the sword, not even a murmur of disapproval was heard.

The returning officer resigned at the last moment because he was disgusted by the conduct of both Ben Harris Quinney and his slate. He was also disgusted by the behaviour of Craig Rimmer and his slate.

Both groups put unacceptable pressure on him in the election from what I know from credible sources.

It is a shame that at the moment the Bow Group is being run by people with personal vendettas and I'm sorry to say some of the opponents to BHQ aren't much better.

To not have an election for three years is also disgraceful and this must change soon.

There was a EGM last year and there is, a much over due, AGM in the coming weeks.

As you know the first Returning Officer stood down as the whole thing just became very silly.

The council at the time appointed a new returning officer the week before. Micheal Rock, former CF chair and The Bow Group council member. A very independent man and really could not be called a BHQ stooge.

They had an EGM last year and are going to have an AGM this year in late September-it was scheduled a year ago
