I agree with much of what Richard says here but I’d go much farther in my critique of the BNP. Its economic “philosophy” is Obama-ite in the extreme. They aren’t’ just for a “white” welfare state, they want state control of major industries, and, of course, they’re super-protectionists. They are, in short, national socialists—just as much of a threat to liberty as leftists, and perhaps more so, since they’re relatively novel. Much more interesting is the UKIP (United Kingdom Independence Party), which did really well in the Euro-elections.
