Jim Thornton's Election Blog...What's the attraction of the BNP?

Submitted on Mon, 01/06/2009 - 10:28am

Thursday 28 May 2009:

I have been suprised at the number of people who have spoken on the doorstep, or in the market, openly and approvingly of the BNP. Some of these were not the usual caricature BNP supporter but ordinary people concerned about jobs for themselves or their children. We are fortunate that Nick Griffin is not a charismatic leader. I still believe the best defence is to have the better arguments, but that means the main parties have to give better explanations as to why free markets are better and why diversity in the long run brings prosperity.
