British National Party – Forty Years in British Politics
In 1982, the British National Party was born out of what was then the National Front. After 40 years in British politics, at the peak of its popularity it managed to win two seats in the European Parliament, one seat in the London Assembly, twelve seats in the local authority of Barking and Dagenham, and several Councillor seats spread across the country but never managed to win control over any local or regional authority and has never had not even one Member of Parliament.
There are 650 MPs in the House of Commons and more than 30,000 Councillors, including local, regional and parish Councillors.
This goes to show how demagogic and how theatrical the British mass media have been. They created the image of a gigantic force ready to take over British politics. Such a force has existed only in the minds of feeble minded individuals and of those ready and willing to take advantage of peoples’ fears, fed with lies and stereotypes.
Despite its lack of representation, the British National Party has expressed the concerns that many, across political boundaries, have about
Britain’s present and ’s future. The British National Party forced so called mainstream political parties to talk about flood immigration. Both Conservatives and Labour were forced to include expressions like ‘British jobs for British workers’, borrowing British National Party campaigning slogans. Britain
The British National Party set the ball rolling concerning the investigation of abuses committed by Members of Parliament in what is known as the ‘expenses scandal’. The British National Party also made the first political moves that led to a widespread investigation and the conviction of Muslim perverts involved in the systematic exploitation and sexual abuses committed against women and children.
Despite being vilified and persecuted, the British National Party has met its moral and civil obligations, has expressed the concerns of ordinary folks and has set the tone of the political discourse.
