Kray twins admirer is big BNP donor

From HOPE not hate:

A close friend of the murderous Kray twins is one of two major donors to the British National Party in the third quarter of 2009. Eileen Sheridan-Price, a former beauty queen, gave £5,105 to the BNP in September.

Sheridan-Price says the East End of London was “a much nicer, safer place” when the Kray twins were around. Reginald and Ronald Kray were notorious gangsters who ran organised crime in the East End during the 1950s and 1960s. They were involved in torture, armed robberies, arson, protection rackets and murder to enforce their will. They were both convicted in 1969 and sentenced to life imprisonment.

One can see the attraction of the BNP for an admirer of the Krays.

The other large donor in the period was Charles Hancock, who gave £8,700 in August. Neither name has previously appeared in the list of people giving more than £5,000 to the party.

The BNP has still not submitted its 2008 accounts.

by Sonia Gable From BBC News 1 October 2000:

Reggie Kray, one of the most notorious gangsters of the 1960s, has died peacefully in his sleep after a battle against bladder cancer.

Kray, 66, died in the honeymoon suite at the Beefeater Town House Hotel in Norwich, Norfolk.

The former gangster was officially freed from prison on 26 August by Home Secretary Jack Straw because of his deteriorating health.

He had been moved to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital from Wayland Prison near Watton, Norfolk, 10 days earlier.

Kray chose the Town House because he wanted to look out over a river after serving 31 years for the murder of fellow gangster Jack "The Hat" McVitie in a flat in Stoke Newington, north London.


  1. R.I.P REGGIE KRAY whatever he and he and his brother done it was to fellow gangsters i mean i wasnt even a thought at the time but any stories i've heard from people some of them family that lived round the east end at that time said they cleaned things up you felt safe with them around it was wrong the time they got you wouldn't get anywhere near that now and theres been worse murders than that since yes murder is murder but there HAS been much more gruesome acts of violence since then what did they really achieve keeping them in that long it didn't bring back the "victims" back it was way too harsh but atleast they are free now god bless you both you will never be forgotten xxxxx

  2. bless him whateer he and his brother did it was to fellow gangsters not ordinary joe soaps i mean i was't even a thought at the time but i've heard from people that lived in the eastend at te time some of them family and they had nothin but good to say like they cleaned things up and you felt safe with them around and you could go to them if you had a problem i feel bad for the victims families but there's the old saying you live by the sword you die by the sword. I think their sentence was ridiculous you wouldn't get anywhere near that now and there has been more gruesome crimes than that since what did it actually achieve keeping them locked up for that long anyway they are free now god bless you both you will neer be
