If you are in the UK and have a vote, please use it. The BNP are racists, who want all “non-indigenous” (i.e., non-white) people to leave the country. If there is a low voter turn out, they have a good chance of getting their first MEP, which means much more money for their cause and stronger links with other fascist parties in europe. That would be a disaster.
Before the current BNP leader, Nick Griffin, took charge, the BNP were openly racist. He has been working hard to clear up their image and the language they use, but that is all that has changed. He remains a racist, holocaust-denying homophobe who believes that no black or asian person could ever be described as british. Griffin considers the BNP to be “a strong, disciplined organisation with the ability to back up its slogan ‘Defend Rights for Whites’ with well-directed boots and fists. When the crunch comes power is the product of force and will, not of rational debate.”
But most of all — please vote, for any party but the BNP! If you’re unsure who to vote for, euprofiler.eu does a good job of matching your opinions to party manifestos.
