We couldn't possibly pass this opportunity up. Just who is this moron at the 'New Statesman'? We have answered in one word at the end of this stupid, stupid paragraph on the BNP.
"The party's vote has grown exponentially at general elections, too. In 1992, it won 7,005 votes; in 1997 it won 35,832; in 2001 it won 47,129; in 2005 it won 192,746. What is behind the growth of the BNP? How has it managed to gain a toehold in local politics?"
