Its about stopping the BNP
I don’t think we should be gambling on the three main parties alone managing to stop the BNP. That’s why we are putting the clear message across to vote Green to stop Nick Griffin getting elected to the European Parliament. For more details visit http://www.stopnickgriffin.org.uk/
ANTI-RACISM campaigners took to the streets in South Yorkshire last night as they organised a picket of a pub where the leader of the BNP was appearing.
Nick Griffin addressed a meeting of his far-right party at the Fleets pub in Smithies Lane, Barnsley, as protesters staged a demonstration outside.
We Brits don't do free speech, thank goodness
Less than a month before local government and European Parliament elections, Labour is facing a wipeout in county council town halls in what could be the worst local election results for 30 years.
Its share of the poll in the Euro elections will be doing well if it tops 20 per cent on current signals, with the British National Party stalking its first beachhead on the lucrative European stage.
Senior politicians are drawing up cross-party plans to fight the British National party in next month’s local and European elections, amid fears the far-right party could stage advances by exploiting an “anti-politics” tide sweeping the country.
Harriet Harman, deputy Labour leader, and Eric Pickles, Tory chairman, will hold talks next week to draw up a strategy designed to isolate the BNP and to co-ordinate a united response in areas where the party is campaigning.
Mr Farage also predicted his party could stand in the way of an electoral breakthrough for the far-right British National Party in the north of England.
Politicians generally, rather than any one party or MP, will be damaged by the disclosures on MPs’ expenses. They will discredit mainstream politics, reduce turnout and benefit anti-establishment groups. So watch how other parties, especially the British National Party, do in the European elections on June 4.
Labour and the Conservatives are preparing a joint strategy for combating the BNP at the local and European elections next month.
