The Muslim Council of Britain are urging Muslims to get out and vote on the 10th of June. They are concerned, as am I, that a low turn out will let the BNP slip into the European Parliament or the Greater London Authority.
The proportional representation system used in both these elections, linked with a low turnout, could be the key to BNP representation. If they win a seat in either of these elections they would be eligible for state funding. I have been encouraging the people that I speak to to vote in the election, I would rather they voted for the Conservatives but better that they vote for someone else than not vote at all.
