As reported in the Birmingham Post (25th August 2011) City finance chief Coun Randal Brew said that the council had subsidised the museum to the tune of £650,000 over the last 15 years.
Museum supporters said it had not cost the council anything, but has been using the Victorian tram depot rent free. The sum was a paper transfer from one council department, the museum service, to another, the property division.
I spoke to the financial director of the Museum Richard Gray who explained the situation. He said they had an independent valuation of the building which was 325,000 freehold. The Museum offered 350,000 but the Council refused and said it's worth 900,000.
The council has said that back rent is owed yet legal advice obtained by MR Gray said no such back rent was owed (they have never paid rent but kept the building going via donations and volunteers).
Then the council offered a 99 year lease at 350,000 plus a commercial rent of 42,000 per year plus 60,000 back rent - the museum couldn't afford this and know it's unfair.
MR Gray also told me the Councillors had said there are 'several business interested in the site' , one of which is a company which would like to convert the building into a Asian banquting suite. Councillor Randal Brew (Northfield Conservative) had been supportive in the early stages but has since abandoned the Museum and the directors efforts to save it.
MR Gray informed me they have now been offered till the end of the year to vacate - if they accept that, no back rent will be owed.
MR Gray sounds tired and worn down by the scum bag councillors and said "I can't do this on my own".
He said one possibility was to sell some of the items they have in the museum and find a different premises, however this would not be the same because the current museum site and adjacent building (a car spares outlet)have the original tram tracks running through them.
He mentioned a deadline of October the 16th 2011 as they have not accepted the vacate by the end of the year offer. He said they may have to give up before then, otherwise the council may send people to take the buses/trams away as scrap!
A online petition has been made with a target of five thousand signatures and residents of Councillor Randal Brews ward will be informed about his attitude towards Birmingham's heritage via British National Party leaflets.
The online petition can be signed here

Today I receviced this email asking for the British National Party to step and help the Aston Manor Road Transport Museum, Paul Hickman the Birmingham organiser is now looking into this and we will keep you posted.
Please read the copy of the email below.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to you to inform you about the latest anti-Christian decision from the Birmingham City Council.
This relates to the use of the old Witton Tram Depot on Witton Lane opposite Villa Park.
For the past twenty years it's been used for a Transport Museum but now they want the Transport Museum to close even though the group who runs the Transport Museum have offered the council £350,000 to buy the building. The building has been valued at £250,000 by an independent surveyor. The Transport Museum groups offer has been turned down because the council are going to hand the building over to a Muslim group to be used as a Islamic Community Centre.
What makes this even more hard to understand, is the fact that a someone has even offered the council £950,000 to buy the building so that the Transport Museum can stay and this has just been turned down.
The council is run by the same two parties who are in government, which makes this decision even more shocking to understand.
Here are the links to the Museum site, please take a look.

Instead there will be prayer areas, Muslim stalls and all food served will be HALAL.
Organisers Islamic Leisure have billed it the First National Muslim Fun Day and tickets can only be bought through their website.
Non-Muslims phoning the Staffordshire park have been refused tickets.
One, George Hughes, 19, who rang up for 15 tickets for a pal’s birthday, said: “I couldn’t believe it.
Invited ... Muslim girls can go to the fun day
“It’s the only day we can go, yet I can’t because I’m not Muslim. Can you imagine all the fuss if there was a Christians-only day?”
George, of Crayford, Kent, added: “My Muslim friends think it’s outrageous.
“What’s the world coming to when people are being banned from flying the St George’s flag yet this sort of day is allowed? If it must be held, then why not on a weekday rather than a busy weekend?”
The event is widely promoted on the internet and the Muslim Public Affairs Committee declared it “exclusively for our brothers and sisters”.
Logo ... biggest fun park
But some Muslims have condemned the idea. One university student on a Muslim website forum said: “It’s hardly encouraging integration.”
Another said: “What next . . . an all Muslims shopping day out in the Trafford Centre in Manchester?”
Abid Hussan of Islamic Leisure insisted the day was open to all faiths, although Islamic laws would apply.
He added: “There will be no smoking, no alcohol and halal food only.
“We’re trying to get Muslims to go to this day because they wouldn’t normally go somewhere like Alton Towers. We’re trying to integrate Muslims into the wider community. People can come down and see the way we live. It will be a peaceful family environment.”
Alton Towers said any organisation could hire the park for a day.
A spokeswoman said “We make no distinction regarding sexuality, religious, ethnic or lifestyle choices.”
She confirmed tickets for the day were now available only through Islamic Leisure. And Alton Towers would promote the fact that the day had been booked.
She added: “As a general rule, there will be no admission on the day to guests who have not booked through the organisation in advance.”

The Guest speaker was the party Chairman Nick Griffin MEP, who took time out of his busy schedule to speak at Solihull. I have including the video please watch and enjoy.
The large plot that members of the Black Country branch have taken on recently, is on track for it's planned development, and should be ready to plant early next year. The members involved from the branch, have clubbed together, and ensured that any costs do not eat into any funds. Also, the hard work will be well worth it in terms of locally produced vegetables, and economic independence. Our correspondent told us that:
''We spoke to many people over the last couple of years, and everyone thought it was a good idea, but as with most ideas, nothing really came of it. John Salvage spoke at a Birmingham meeting a couple of months ago on a Sunday evening, and decided to act after mentioning it during his speech. On the following Monday, John went to one of the committee members of a Black Country allotment, and was told a large plot was available. However, it was not in good order, but the families and kids were really excited, and the hard work began.''
As you can see by the picture, a youngster is enjoying helping some of the members, and the whole project is really about getting our people ready for the possible serious hard times ahead, which will include the three-fold price of food, continued loss of jobs, and the spiral into near anarchy that will accompany the economic disaster engulfing the whole of the western world. A renaissance is sorely needed in all aspects of our culture, but the most basic one is of course, providing quality food for our families, and giving people who cannot afford such traditionally grown food, an opportunity to eat healthily.
The Black Country British National Party, wants to encourage other branches, supporters, voters, and of course indigenous families, to do the same. Youngsters should be given all the encouragement possible, and fit and healthy children are after all, the next generation of potential Nationalist politicians, activists, and voters. With everything that the powers that be are doing to undermine our society, health in mind and body, is a must. Families also need to be aware of the value of good, locally grown food. Politically, it seems a million miles away from the front line, but as some people observe, ''everything is political'', and ''growing your own'' is an important part of maintaining traditional family values, and creating a world within a world. A world of our own making, and starting the fightback from literally the ground up.
If our readers think self sufficiency is something only undertaken by well off professionals as seen on TV, downsizing and ''growing their own'' with the financial clout of former high flying careers... then think again. This allotment, which is a very large plot indeed, is only £20 per year. Nearby stables produce all the manure required, and the rest is simply down to nature, well organised use of time, and a little hard graft split between all those involved. So, get to it folks, let's spread the message that we will not take what is coming lying down. Let's get digging, and dig for victory, and create a renaissance in every aspect of our culture.

With the latest campaign table top visiting Halesowen this Saturday, the team produced a fantastic result. With a 150 signature session under their belts, Organiser Rob Weale and his team, achieved 1000 signatures in just three weeks. The weather forecast was supposedly a mix of showers and sunshine, but it stayed dry, and this was long enough for the people of Halesowen to give their opinions on David Cameron's disgraceful ''Britain does not need a referendum, we had one over 30 years ago'' rant last week. Many were incensed at the arrogance, and lack of democratic choice, even though he'd promised such a referendum.
The team had only just got the stall set up, when one chap, a fellow in his late 80's, told the team of his worries for the next generation, and what had happened to his beloved country. Activist Simon Foxhall, described to our correspondent how the chap had tears in his eyes, and was visibly upset, and signed the petition with both anger and happiness. He said he was glad to see people bothering to at least try to do something. That seemed to sum up the feelings of quite a few this Saturday, as many more were seething at the country's spiral into anarchy.
Another elderly chap, told the team: ''I spoke to Adrian Bailley, the local MP, and told him at a meeting that, the majority of British people didn't want to be involved in Europe, and he was almost shouting at me, telling me it was not true.'' Adrian Bailley is a multi-culturalist, and has shown his despicable attitude on more than one occasion, and just like his comrades on the left, is more concerned with pushing for further integration into Europe, and acts mainly for the ethnic communities. Halesowen people are increasingly angry about the policies that are forced upon them, and the town has seen a downturn in jobs, and it's former indigenous community.
The throng of shoppers started to swell around ten, and the next two hours saw a flurry of people signing the petition. Another elderly gentleman told a charming, but ultimately sad story, about how his early childhood had seen his community go from a strong, sporting one, to a dismal and multi-cultural one. He told our correspondent: ''When I was in my early teens, we had a boxing club here, and had over 220 members. The club was run professionally, and had a gym, washroom, table tennis room, and a canteen.'' He continued: ''We then had a visit from the local Labour group, who even in the early 1950's were determined to destroy it. They wanted to take control of it, and make it into a girls and boys club, and moved in people from immigrant families. Within a couple of years, the place was a tip, and the local area was more like a hovel.''
As the last hour approached, it got even harder to take a breather. It was noticed by the team that, many ladies seemed to be the more vocal, and were angry at the cost of living, and the amount of foreign foods available, and were not at all happy with the supermarkets and foreign shops encroaching on their once, happy and prosperous community. One lady and her friend stated the fact that, if it wasn't for the EU, we need not cut the police, or other important services. They also made it obvious that Decimalisation, introduced in 1971, had lowered the value of our currency, and since then, the country has not recovered. All in all, there were some very interesting conversations, and it seems that this campaign has really got people talking.

Three Shropshire towns received the British National Party's commonsense patriotic message today as the new glossy recruitment leaflet hit the county's streets for the first time . The party's message of hope proved extremely popular with the residents of Ludlow, Craven Arms and Church Stretton with a fair number of people wanting to take away a copy of the Voice Of Freedom newspaper too.
Shrewsbury organiser Karl Foulkes (pictured above) said he was very pleased with the positive response from his fellow Salopians and he believed that it was a sign that the party had now well and truly established itself everywhere in the county.

Brierley Hill, Black Heath, Halesowen, and Cradley Heath, all deep in the heart of the industrial wasteland that once serviced the industries of the world, were today visited for lightning leafleting sessions. The sessions were organised by Rob Weale, and with a contingent from Wolverhampton, got the message that only the British National Party has the political will to stop the anarchy and rioting, recently blighting English towns and cities. The leaflet: CAN ANYONE RESTORE ORDER?, was very well received by members of the public. Many quoted Enoch Powell, and quite a few were already voters whom had supported the party at many elections.
Brierley Hill, the first town visited on Saturday, had already been host to a couple of table top campaigns, and with the town suffering from an increase in cheap, and mainly unwanted ''fast food'' and clothes stores set up by immigrants, the atmosphere was very welcoming indeed. Jason Percival was the day's flag bearer, and the team soon handed out dozens of leaflets to eager people in the high street. The next town, Cradley Heath, was where the anchor for the Titanic was manufactured, and this town has suffered many job losses, and the loss of almost all of its manufacturing base. People were very angry indeed at the continued arrogance of the MP's, and the fact that David Cameron had done nothing to instill confidence in locals.
Next on the tour, was Halesowen. This town has undergone much destruction of its heart, and with a high unemployment rate, and loss of identity, the people here were also very vocal about the recent riots, and the damage done to the region's reputation. Black Heath was the last on the list, and this town has been the victim of unwanted town planing, due to the expansion of supermarket chains. Many shops in the markets have suffered, and once again, jobs in the private sector have been badly effected, whilst a recent report on Sandwell Council's ''£1 million on new phones'' scandal, had people jumping up and down with fury.
Our activists have been the only representatives from any political party, actually facing up to the fact that a serious debate, needs to be put on the agenda, especially regarding the recent rioting and causes of them. This was proven without doubt, when throughout the whole session, in four different towns and two constituencies in the Black Country, only British National Party activists were anywhere to be seen. It is an indictment of all post war governments that, multi-culturalism, mass immigration, and the Seceding of our political leaders to the EU, has landed us in the position we now find ourselves in. The cost to local tax payers is already believed to be in the ten of millions, as police overtime, shop damage, and a ''business riot fund'' will all have to be administered. Also, many Asian business were not insured, and although the riots are roundly condemned by this party, the fact that tax and insurance payers will end up with a bill for this, is in the light of day, both ridiculous, and a slap in the face to those whom have paid to protect their businesses.

Birmingham Organiser Paul Hickman took his team to Yardley Wood on Saturday, to set up the ''EU Referendum Now'' table top stall. Along with Black Country Organiser Rob Weale, and his fellow activists, the teams stood outside shops on the main road, and before the stall was even set up properly, people were asking to sign what looks to be one of the most popular campaigns in recent years.
Before long, a hive of activity was seen at the stall. The two things that stood out almost immediately, were the amount of women signing the petition, and the fact that many people were incensed at the extra years they or their husbands now had to work, whilst millions of immigrants were able to continue arriving here, without putting a penny into the system. One lady told the team that: ''I've been told I have to work three extra years now, and my pension and other plans were all worked out for retirement at 60, it's a flipping disgrace.''
Another lady was fuming at her husband's position, where she described him having to work for a decade longer, adding: ''Yes, I'll sign the bloody petition, because that lot in Brussels have created this debt, and now we're having to pay for it all.'' The fury of people was quite overwhelming at times, with the two set of activists having to almost fight off the numbers grabbing forms, and loudly protesting their loathing of the system, it wasn't long before that old chestnut, ''industrial demise'' reared its ugly head.
Approximately 150 signatures were collected and the weather held out.
A well known Birmingham Mail letter writer signed the petition and chatted to our Acocks Green candidate Kevin Mc Hugh.
On their journey to the area, the Black Country delegation noticed a large number of derelict factories along the way. One of the main topics for locals, was the destruction of industry, and the fact that we have to pay upwards of £60 billion per year for so called membership of the EU. Another gripe for locals, was that the EU was responsible for, in one lady's words: ''the bloody amount of foreign aid we keep forking out for.'' With just one shower of rain in the early part of the campaign, the day warmed up with not just sunshine, but words of encouragement for the party's efforts in ''doing something'' for the people of Britain.
One elderly fellow said he'd served in the ''York's and Lanc's'' regiment, and thought it great that the team were displaying the Union Flag and St George's Cross. In another surprise, two youngish men rode up on cycles, one in his 20's, and the other, an older man in his early 40's, who said his father was from the West Indies. He suggested to Francis, a lady activists from the Birmingham branch that, the British National party: ''Should be proud of what they are doing, and should not be afraid to tell the truth about what is going on''. Adding that: I'm mixed race, but your party and the British people are being oppressed, and you ought not to back down, because that means you are weakening any chance of being an alternative to that bunch of B------S in the EU, and London''.
All in all, if that is what people feel like, it certainly makes a mockery of UAF/Lib-Lab-Con lies about us being bigots, racists, and nuckle-dragging thugs etc. The angry feelings of resentment felt by both our activists, and the general public, including some ethnic minorities, could not possibly show itself in such civilised and intellectually stimulating ways. Finally, we'd like to thank the lady, who we think was possibly from Spain originally, for an interesting discussion about China's role in becoming a serious power on the world stage. She displayed a very good knowledge of the debt problem, and what it means for Britain and Europe's indigenous population, and emphasised the need to withdraw immediately from the EU. To have such debates from the general public shows that the party is on the right track, and can offer principled and respectful arguments on all subjects dear to everyone's hearts.
Youngsters were given free 'English and proud' wristbands and many surplus VOF's and Identy magazines were well received by the locals.
