The BNP Implodes in Crisis After Election Defeat

Griffin: defeated

Amid all the political maneuvering over the last week which has seen The Lib Dem/Conservative coalition come into fruition.

The formation of a new cabinet, and the election of a greater number of Black M.P’s to parliament – a 100% increase – one insatiable fact leaves us giddy, and is worth savouring: The BNP have been smashed into oblivion.

Let’s repeat those words again. The BNP have been smashed into oblivion. What a relief it is to be able to utter those words. Amid all the political jostling, the British electorate can at least boast that we have removed the stench of fascism from our democracy.

The BNP’s influence within Barking’s council was crushed. The success the BNP were hoping to enjoy in Stoke-the BNP’s “jewel in the crown” did not happen.

This is perhaps the biggest victory of the election, and a proud moment for British democracy. We can be encouraged by this show of solidarity-solidarity that had to happen. The alternative would have been unthinkable. But now we must build on this solidarity.

As the saying goes “All it takes for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing” These words reflect how the BNP rose to the position they did following their success in the European elections 2009. The million votes they received, tallied with unprecedented apathy magnified the scale of their achievement.

But the people of Barking, Stoke, and anti fascist campaigners have ensured that lessons were learned from the apathy that caused alarm bells to ring in 2009.

They mobilised, and fought a hard campaign to hammer home the message to voters that racism has no place in British politics.

How the new government deals with the issues that the BNP championed will be one of the factors which will determine whether or not they will ever regain a significant foothold in our newly transformed political system. They are not gone but their future remains uncertain. The BNP are not buried-but they most certainly are on life support.

The next priority will be to oust Griffin from his Euro MP seat…
