I have watched the BNP work, I sit next to Richard Barnbrook at the London Assembly and he was allocated an office on the same floor as the Conservative group in City Hall. I have never been intimidated by the BNP and over the last few years I have had a chance to the their incompetence up close. The latest stories of infighting, expulsions and disintegration does not surprise me at all.
There have been people who have advocated treating the BNP as a special case, saying that they should be denied a platform or that rules should be changed because some of them got elected. I will say now on this blog what I have said many times in real life:
“Do not treat the BNP as a special case, they are not special, they’re just crap.”
