BNP candidate to stand in Islington electionWalter Barfoot, a retired builder who lives in Caledonian Road, is a long standing member of the BNP and has also lived in Islington for many years.
A spokesman for the party said: “Our policies are well known. We want to try and stand in every single election; local, national and European. We want to give people an option – it is not just about winning, it is about taking part.”
The BNP website states: “Native British are now treated like second-class citizens in our own country, whilst asylum-seekers and immigrants are pushed to the front of the queue for housing, jobs and benefits.”
It adds: “Towns and cities all over our beautiful country now resemble parts of Africa or Asia. British people have become a minority in many areas already, and within a few decades, we will become a minority across the country as a whole.”
Councillor Catherine West, leader of Islington Council, said: “We don’t welcome the BNP being in this by-election, but I am confident Islington will show its belief in the diverse community that we have.”
As a matter of fact, the British National Party has nothing against diversity provided diversity does not mean replacing entire local populations. It is also a matter of fact that flood immigration has led to what in places like the former Yugoslavia was known as ethnic cleansing. Multiculturalism has led to the formation of ghettos that create isolation in areas where English is hardly the main language. The British National Party does not want Kosovo-like areas on British soil.
