Today, a guest author, Cerith Jones, writes:
"I am finding it hard to believe that some people, who feel disillusioned by Britain’s mainstream parties and vow to vote for the British National Party at the polls on June 4th, actually understand what the BNP stands for.
I assume that they believe that the BNP will give “British jobs to British workers” and will give something back to our economy? In actual fact, the British National Party is a party of racism, hatred and fascism – nothing more than 21st Century Nazis. It is a party which fails to recognise the difference between England and Britain, was opposed to devolution, and is wholly committed to a further democratic transfer of powers.
The BNP is “wholly opposed to any form of racial integration between British and non-European peoples. It is therefore committed to stemming and reversing the tide of non-white immigration and to restoring, by legal changes, negotiation and consent, the overwhelmingly white makeup of the British population that existed in Britain prior to 1948.” Put simply, the BNP thinks that Britain should be an all-white country and is committed to restoring that in the UK – therefore the membership of the British National Party is restricted to Caucasians (white people). Even if a person is born and bred in Britain, but is black or Asian, that person may not be a member of the British National Party because of the colour of his or her skin.
Do supporters realise that they sympathise with a denier of the Holocaust – Nick Griffin, BNP Leader? On one occasion, he said, "this nonsense about gas chambers is ... a total lie” and on another, “yes, Adolf went a bit too far. His legacy is the biggest problem that the British nationalist movement has to deal with. It just creates a bad image." Nice.
The British National Party is also anti-homosexual, though it says that its policy towards homosexuality is one of ‘tolerance’. However, their actual policy is that if they were in government, they’d provide gay people with counselling to draw them away from their “deviant lifestyles” or ask them to become celibate. Doesn’t sound very tolerant to me.
To anyone who has a friend or a family member who is a member of a different political party, or who is of a different religion, or who is gay, or has been raped, or has an STI, or who opposes war – think before you join, sympathise with or support the British National Party.
The BNP is a party of racism, fascism and hatred that is out of touch with modern Britain and has succeeded in reviling millions of people with ridiculous policies.
Vote Plaid Cymru the Party of Wales on June 4th. Plaid is the only party in Britain that always puts the people of Wales first – be they Christian, Muslim, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, European, Caucasian, African, Right-wing, Left-wing, Male, Female, Young, Old, Heterosexual, Homosexual or Bisexual. We will always think of you, the people of Wales, in a way that no one else will."
