British Nationalism is a total disgrace.That may be a fair assessment: the BNP, a party led by idiots and crooks signifying nothing.
Led by idiots and crooks and filled with lick spittles that think unconditional loyalty to their bent Fuhrer [equals] patriotism. ...
These are supposed to be 'leaders' of the Nationalist movement, a bunch of greedy, idiotic, corrupt egotists and loons who have used the movement for their own ends. ...
Let the whole movement burn to the ground.
Only then will something better rise from the ashes.
Or it could be that the "idiots and crooks" and "corrupt egoists" running the movement have, with cool intent, skillfully intimidated through fear of association, those who would otherwise support the populist policies comprising the BNP's avowed platform.
Consider the party's supposed agenda, which is to:
end mass immigration to what is one of the World's most densely populated countries; require illegal immigrants to leave Britain; institute a national industrial policy that protects British jobs and preserves Britain's industrial workforce skills and technological capabilities; pull out of Afghanistan immediately; exit the EU; grant teachers the authority to restore discipline in the classroom; focus education on basic literacy and numeracy skills, and the study of British history and culture; remove legal curbs on the freedom of speech; implement a Bill of Rights; introduce citizen-initiated referenda; devolve powers of the central government to the lowest feasible level (See all this under the policy tab on the BNP Website).
And how has the BNP leader, Cambridge-trained lawyer, Nick Griffin, promoted these policies?
By surrounding himself with a band of nuckle-draggers and crypto fascists.
By repelling decent people by racists remarks, widely publicized and then implausibly denied.
By bloodying the nose of a Times reporter during the general election campaign and then boasting that this proved that the party had not gone soft.
By having the party's publicity chief arrested for making death threats against the party leader.
By bizarrely turning the BNP into a laughing stock by conducting a national televised broadcast with the image of a Marmite jar as a backdrop: an apparently meaningless stunt that drew the threat of legal action by Unilever, owner of the Marmite trademark.
Then there's Griffin's association with Roberto Fiore, a self-proclaimed fascist who fled Italy in the wake of the (?Gladio) 1980 Bologna train station bombing that killed 85 people. Fiore was convicted in absentia of conspiring to carry out an armed attack.
Gladio was created by NATO at the end of WWII to discredit populist left wing parties in Europe.
Griffin's BNP looks and acts like a mechanism to discredit any populist, anti-imperialist movement in Britain.
The existence of the British National Party, I suggest, mocks the notion of democracy in Britain and ensures that control of the British Government remains firmly in the hands of the lackeys of the corporate oligarchs, the Anglo-US empire and the Con/Lib/Lab Friends of Israel.
