The British National party’s (BNP) election campaign imploded yesterday when its head of online operations quit the party and sabotaged the far right party’s website.
Simon Bennett, directed traffic to his own website, where he posted an outspoken attack on the party and its leadership.
Bennett claimed that the party was disorganised, amateurish and constantly wasting membership fees.
“This will no doubt [sic] come as a shock to many of those that read this, particularly those who really don’t want to hear it,” he wrote.
“However, I have a duty to the members and my conscience, but most of all to my wife and children, to tell the truth behind the spin.”
Bennett described party leader Nick Griffin as:”pathetic, desperate and incompetent.”
The BNP has been plagued by infighting in recent months, with various factions breaking off from Griffin’s leadership.
Griffin recently informed police that someone in the organisation was trying to kill him. The party also faced legal proceedings for using an image of Marmite on an online broadcast.
Campaigning in Barking today, Griffin and his entourage were pelted with tomatoes by residents.
