Lest we forget
why we need to turn out and vote next Thursday, Fraser Nelson in The Spectator provides ample reminder in his report on the BNP:
That the BNP is racist is, of course, not a matter of opinion. It has a whites-only membership policy, for example, and while it no longer supports compulsory repatriation, there are no prizes for guessing its definition of ‘indigenous population’. But there is no hint of this on the campaign trail. The letters BNP are, to me, hatefully synonymous with racism and all its sickening implications. But the people who have BNP posters in their windows regard this primarily as a gesture of defiance, a protest, a means of throwing stones at the glass of the Palace of Westminster.
The comments underneath his post, depressingly, start to prove his point.
