It is with enormous sadness that we inform our supporters of the passing of West Midlands regional organiser Paul Rudge.
Paul was suffering with health problems recently and lost his battle on Thursday evening.
Paul is a veteran of Britain First and has been active and loyal for many years.
Paul stood for election last year and obtained nearly 30% of the vote (below), coming second, a great first time effort.
Paul's unexpected passing has caused great sadness in our ranks.
We have lost a family member.
Paul will be remembered as a patriot warrior who only a few weeks ago attended a police station with party leader Paul Golding in Dudley where the police refused to arrest him, despite travelling up from Kent to do so!
We will shortly release a video in honour of the long service Paul gave to our movement.
Rest in peace brother. You will be sorely missed by everyone.
Till we meet again. OCS
