The fact that he's a politics teacher is frightening, possibly more so than him being elected. The first step? Freedom? Dictatorship? I mean, do they have ANY understanding of the hypocrisy in all of this?

While I condemn the BNP and view most of the people who voted for them as misguided it must also be noted that New Labour's policies are partly to blame for this.

Eloquent and professional, Mr Brons, 61, is both a politics and law lecturer, and a convicted criminal.

He was fined £50 by Leeds magistrates in 1984 for abusive chanting that included calling an ethnic minority police officer an "inferior being".

Nick Griffin: from Holocaust denial to the European Parliament
Ukip claims political breakthrough At the time he was the chairman of the National Front and was marching through the streets with his colleagues chanting slogans including "white power" and "death to Jews".

Divorced with two grown-up daughters and four grand children, Mr Brons was 17 when, in 1964, he started his political activism, signing up for the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement, an organisation that was deliberately founded on Hitler's birthday. NSM members were responsible for an arson campaign against Jewish property and synagogues in the 1960s.

According to the pressure group Hope Not Hate, Mr Brons said, in a letter to the group founder Colin Jordan's wife, such action was "well intentioned". The group said he also sent Mrs Jordan money to buy a swastika badge and other Nazi material, explaining he was about to undertake a "crash programme" of publicity for the NSM in Yorkshire by deluging areas with Nazi stickers, posters and slogans.

These supremacists show up when the economy is bad, but if supremacists are so superior why do they need so much protection?

You guys really seem quite far behind in recent BNP policy.
The BNP have Jewish members and have support from ethnic minorities. Dont believe too much in what liberal media have to say.

Lily Allen is a media bully who has all the class of a discarded walkers crisp packet.

Apart from Anglo Saxons, who are the major ethnic group in Britain, there are supporters from ethnic minorities such as Welsh, Scottish, Manx and Northern Irish.
Other individuals from ethnic (read: non-white) minorities who support the BNP may be new in the country and maybe they don't speak the language very well, so it was hard for them to decipher the text on the BNP pamphlets, so they had to rely on the leader's good looks *ahem*.

You cant just touch soil and vote, you must be here for X amount of years and if by then you haven't grasped the aspect of the English language maybe you shouldn't vote. Minorities have had enough of immigration too, your a fool if you think its just a white man's problem.


On a side note : Brown out Johnson in. Election asap on the back of the bounce.

Brown Survives Labour Mutiny in U.K. With Pledge to ‘Improve’

By Kitty Donaldson and Gonzalo Vina

June 9 (Bloomberg) -- Prime Minister Gordon Brown will remain at the helm of Britain’s ruling Labour Party after beating back a rebellion by members unhappy over its worst-ever defeat in voting for the European Parliament.

Confronting dissidents at a two-hour closed-door meeting in Parliament in London late yesterday, Brown won the support of most Labour lawmakers by promising to make unspecified changes to his leadership style and agenda, said six who attended.

“I know I need to improve,” Brown told the meeting, according to his spokesman. He shrugged off calls for his resignation, saying, “You solve the problem not by walking away but by doing something about it.”

Although Brown’s supporters warned that a leadership fight would prompt a general election that Labour would almost certainly lose, the prime minister’s hold on power remains fragile. The wounds inflicted may be reopened if the party’s poll ratings don’t improve or if Brown presses ahead with controversial plans to clamp down on welfare benefits and sell a stake in the postal service.

“The sharks are no longer circling, but they haven’t gone away,” said Ivor Gaber, a professor of political campaigning at City University in London. “At the moment, he is still the most likely person to lead Labour into the next election. But it is by no means certain.”

Tomorrow, lawmakers vote on a motion proposed by opposition parties calling on Brown to hold a general election immediately instead of waiting until the deadline a year from now. If a handful of Labour lawmakers rebel or neglect to show up, Brown, who has a 63-seat majority, could lose the vote.

First bit - Jesus, Vaz, you don't really believe any of that do you? You haven't actually seen these leaflets and read the buzz words, and accepted that we're 'swarming' with immigrants who act as a 'drain' on the resources we good 'british' people are entitled to? You do realise that in comparison with other EU countries we actually take significantly fewer immigrants from war zones and dangerous areas? The BNP have taken certain figures and used them OUT OF CONTEXT to manipulate the truth; if you look to neutral information sources, you'll see that what you're being led to believe is wrong.


Second bit - I'm hoping Johnson takes over, takes the party left, builds a bit more trust, gets people out to vote, wins general election.

While I absolutely do NOT support New Labour (and as a Labour party member feel disillusioned and sickened by their most recent policy agendas) I don't think anyone is to blame but the BNP themselves. They've got intelligent leaders who've successfully evaded the law for this long, but perhaps now is the time to change those laws and prevent such hate-based opinions from being aired.

Your thuggish attitude towards free speech is disturbing, perhaps you could systematically list the reasons why the BNP platform is wrong before throwing them in prison.

These minorities must be very stupid to vote for a guy who sees immigrants as parasites. Do you really think that there are no other, more decent conservative parties they'd rather vote for???

Besides a lot of the die hard BNP followers are neo nazis and former Apartheid supporters.
