BNP effectively trashed - job done 'Agent Griffin'- Nick Griffin wrecks yet another nationalist party after wrecking the NF and the ITP in the 1980's
BNP election results - May 2013
The BDP went into these elections with one county councillor. They now have none. Graeme Partner won Coalville ward, Leicestershire, in 2009 for the BNP. He then became an independent, before switching back to the BNP. However, he then decided to re-stand for the newly formed British Democratic Party.
He should really not have bothered. He came fourth with just 215 votes
Labour - 1294
UKIP - 825
Tory - 476
Brit Dem - 215
Lib Dem - 84
This is the news we have been waiting for. Burnley is now BNP-free for the first time in 11 years.
And not only has the BNP failed to hold its one remaining county council seat but their candidate appears to have come fourth and last.
This is brilliant news.
Here is a comparison between how the BNP vote in Nuneaton and Bedworth yesterday and in 2009:
Bede 21% (2009) 7.1% (2013)
Camp Hill 30.9% (2009) 9% (2013)
Nuneaton Abbey 13% (2009) 6.6% (2013)
Nuneaton Wem Brook 22.2% (2009) 4.7% (2013)
Arbury & Stockingford 22.4% (2009) 9.8% (2013)
Poplar 17.8% (2009) 11.0% (2013)
The problems for the BNP have been graphically illustrated in Nuneaton Camp Hill, where the BNP polled 9% of the vote. And this is without UKIP standing.
In 2009, the BNP polled 30.9% in this ward.
Just for information, HOPE not hate delivered a campaign newspaper through every door in the ward.
Two results have just come in from Staffordshire and the BNP candidates got just 3% in both. One finished last and the other sneaked in ahead of the Liberal Democrats.
The results are further humiliation for the BNP but at least they are consistent.
NWN: We couldn't find anywhere else to glean all the info regarding the total collapse of the BNP under it's 'chief wrecker' Nicholas Griffin. How the remaining clowns cannot see the track record of Griffin we have no idea. We here saw him for what he was, way back in 2001.
