First of all, I don't usually comment on the BNP for
the simple reason that it is hard to tell fact from
fiction from the misinformation provided by mainstream
media and other political parties who like to express
their 'disgust' of the party to try and gain the moral
This piece on LabourHome
by Mike Ion, Labour's PPC for Shrewsbury in 2005 and
occasional Guardian Comment
is Free writer, begins:
"According to Jon Cruddas (Tuesday's Evening Standard)
the far-Right BNP is busy exploiting the present economic
crisis and could easily end up winning seats in the
European Parliament for the first time."
It is always worthwhile to prefix BNP with 'the far
right' to try and scare potential deserters from leaving
Ion states twice that the BNP is racist, but gives
no further information and seems to have conveniently
forgotten about Harriet Harman's racism against whites
and sexism against men, e.g.
Harman in plan to give parties all-black shortlists
men face jobs ban as new law favours ethnic minorities
Of course, what Labour is best at is bringing in ridiculous,
unfair, unworkable legislation in order to set neighbour
against neighbour on a whole range of issues. It's called
divide and rule.
We cannot let Labour get away with inferring that they
are the party for a peaceful and fair society when they
have done just about everything they could to ensure
the opposite will be the reality.
Ion finishes by saying:
"What Britain needs is a broad anti-fascist coalition,
a new coalition of the willing. This broadest possible
coalition against the BNP must be constructed nationally,
regionally and locally. It needs to involve trade unions,
black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, faith
groups, lesbian and gay groups and every other community
threatened by the rise of the far right."
White British heterosexuals can stay at home then?
He sounds very scared of the BNP's potential to harvest
his comrades as they jump from the rotting hull of the
good ship New Labour before it sinks under the weight
of its lies, treachery and bloodshed.
Could the BNP be any worse than Lib/Lab/Con? You decide!
