my thoughts on this whole thing are divided into 2 varying opinions:
1) This will backfire on the BNP horribly.
2) or it will actually work (albeit slightly) and see them become more of a menace to the major parties (Tories, labour, Lib Dem).
No, but it is RACIST
HE MUST BE SIKH IN THE HEAD!
he's not exactly a die-hard Sikh and he is massively Islamophobic. Nice.
Nevertheless, I hope he's prepared for some barely-concealed hostility/hilarious turban jokes/"comedy" accents if he's planning to start attending meetings.
He'll be on a BNP party political broadcast as soon as is humanly possible
hopefully with 'Seek and destroy' as the soundtrack!
this is going to disillusion a lot of the more 'harcore' members of the BNP, who will think Griffin has sold out and so will join the NF or create a splinter group. i guess the idea of this was to create division within the party, and whilst i obviously agree with the sentiment it's really only catalysing the BNP's gradual move into acceptability and in the long-run may be counter-productive. it's one less finger to point at them, after all.
political gain doesn't really come into their decision (but may be a postive or negative consequence)
