BNP on verge of another massive split

Via Harry’s Place

I am grateful to Edmund Standing writing in Harry’s Place about the disbandment of the BNP’s “Reform Group” who are now breaking away and encouraging as many of the 9000 other crackpot BNP members to join them in a reformed National Front. The basis for this schism is the apparent changes to the BNP’s constitution forced upon the white supremacists by the courts, opening up membership to all and sundry.

They are also narked that their leader Nick Griffin MEP is seen to be too dictatorial and in an all too powerful position which the new constitution does little to curtail, they are also less than pleased that Griffin holds the purse strings of the party and that no accounts have been published by the Trafalgar Club which raises cash to directly support the leader.

Well, well,……. oh how they praise democracy when a tiny percentage of the vote propels two of them into the European Parliament, but take a different view on how to run their own organisation.

Edmund pokes some very ironic fun by ending his piece as follows:

A neo-fascist party being led by a ‘dictator’ whose removal is ‘virtually impossible’. Surely not!

I’ve never chuckled so much since Santa got stuck up the chimney! Yes, I know I often call for more tolerance and diversity, but everyone has their limits,
