What happened to the BNP?
Over the last few years, every time I have lamented the absence of any voices of sanity and patriotism in mainstream British politics, every time I have said that “Britain is dead,” the thought has been in the back of my mind, “Where is the BNP? Why, despite its rejection of its previous anti-Semitism, its mainstreaming of its message, and its significant gains in support, are its ideas and influence seemingly playing no role in the political debate in that country?”
Colin Liddell writing at Alternative Right suggests an answer to that question. BNP chief Nick Griffin, the man who engineered the positive transformation of the BNP, is so invested in protecting and perpetuating his own power over the party that there’s no energy left for promoting the cause to which the party is ostensibly devoted.
