Don’t blame the BNP. It’s the main parties who have
betrayed the voters
Tuesday, April 18, 2006.
DURING the General Election campaign last year, I stood
as an Independent candidate against the sitting Labour MP Margaret Hodge, in
the East London constituency of Barking.
one occasion, a mother invited me into her home to explain why she was
considering voting for the BNP. There was no way she could be described as a
racist, she said, for she had two mixed -race daughters herself.
over a cup of tea, she told me how she was fed up with the sheer numbers of
people arriving in the borough, many of them illegally.
strain on housing and local services was becoming too great, she believed.
Displaying the kind of logic that is all too absent from the Government
thinking, she said:
‘this is already a poor area. What is the point of
bringing even more poor people here?
views were shard by many other perfectly decent residents, who felt their
borough, was home to too many Eastern Europeans and Africans…Another women told
me as I canvassed a certain estate:
‘I call this Kosovan Towers’, after the influx of
asylum seekers from the Balkans.
throughout the campaign Margaret Hodge and her local Labour Party refused to
face the reality of working -class anger.
suddenly she has woken up. She complains that Labour has failed to engaged with
its natural supporters and warns eight out of ten of her white working- class
constituents are thinking of voting for the BNP.
is not alone in discovering this phenomenon. A report by the research group the
Joseph Rowntree Foundation, due to be published next week, says that up to 25
per cent of voters may consider supporting the BNP.
attributes this to
feelings of ‘powerlessness and frustration’ among voters and anger with the
main political parties.
comes as no surprise to Mrs Hodge, and presumably a surprise to the Conservative
Party as well. If disillusioned Labour voters no longer turn to the Conservatives
but to the racist BNP, what on earth is going on?
the main parties are [part of the problem. What we are seeing is the rise of a
poisoness party because many traditional working class voters are feeling

seen as the PARTY of a Metropolitan Elite, far removed from the working class
upon whom it used to rely and whose interests it held dear.
phenomenon of a neglected working class is not just confined to LONDON. The BNP
is also expected to pick up votes in the North-West and the Midlands.
Conservatives are he party that once transformed the lives of
working class people in the inner cities under Margaret Thatcher by granting
the right to buy their council Homes.
inability of Labour to tackle key concerns in its heartlands would give the Conservatives
great opportunities to make inroads in thee areas again, if they took up the
the Tories, as I saw in Barking in 2005, have virtually given up in the inner
cities. And the Liberal democrats are the most pro-immigration,
pro-multicultural party of ALL.
vacuum this has left was most graphically illustrated during my campaigning by
the fact that people with close links to the ethnic
communities -and even black people themselves -expressed alarm about the influx
of asylum seekers and the effect this was having on schools and housing in the
I would never recommend anyone voting for the BNP, what struck me was how
similar were the thoughts and feelings of many people from a variety of
a mixed-race candidate, I encountered hardly any personal hostility or
prejudice from voters as I canvassed the streets of the constituency.
I did come across genuine resentment at the high levels of immigration and the
sense that the needs of incomers were receiving higher priority than
long-established local families.

areas in London.
belatedly, Mrs Hodge is aware of some of the anxieties these people face. She
poorest whites feel the greatest anger because there is no way out for them.
the campaign I found that Mrs Hodge was seen aloof and affluent. Many locals
regarded her as if she were an absentee landlady, an attitude not helped by her
decision to go canvassing with the doyenne of liberal columnists, the Guardian’s

turned away without a word.
behaviour perfectly encapsulates the arrogance of our ruling elite, which has
foisted on the public, without any vote or debate the greatest demographic
change in our nation’s history.
those who have borne the brunt of the revolution, such as the working class in
barking, have been traduced if they raise the slightest objection.
Labour Government has also ruthlessly imposed the ideology of multiculturalism,
which exacerbates racial divisions in our society by encouraging different
ethnic groups to cling on to their own values; customs sand even languages,
rather than embracing a British IDENTITY.
has made it impossible to establish any sense of shared belonging or
citizenship. Thanks to the creed of diversity, we now have suspicion and
distrust between different groups.
has helped to create a hierarchy of victimhood, where minorities have a vested
interest in emphasising the extent of their supposed social exclusion in order
to gain more government funding, housing, grants and employment.
one group that is permanently ignored is the white working class, leading to
grotesque double standards.
political elite shows huge concern, for instance, over anti-black racism, but
barely utters a squeak about the violent behaviour of so many young black males
that spreads fear across urban neighbourhoods.
one comment at the weekend, Margaret Hodge said that there had been ‘a lack of
leadership’ on race from Labour.
the contrary, Labour has been obsessed with race since coming to power, passing
a deluge of legislation and accusing almost every public service of
it has been one-way traffic. In the focus on alleged discrimination, ordinary
white people have been left behind
rise of the BNP is a direct result of the failure of our traditional politics.
Labour seems interested only in the votes of liberal Middle England - key
voters in marginal ‘swing’ seats -and has taken its [once] rock-solid urban
seats for granted.
at the heart of our system is a dangerous vacuum and this is now being filled
by the BNP. It is a dangerous development, for if the BNP gains further ground,
severe damage will be caused to the fabric of our society.
[ENGLAND] has a long, proud history of good race relations, having little of
the extremism that has poisoned continental Europe.
however, the Labour Government is now threatening that record with its dilution
of our NATIONAL CHARACTER, its explosion in MIGRATION and its promotion of
Hodge may have woken up to the TRUTH.
BUT WILL HER COLLEAGUES FOLLOW?

If you vote Conservative, Labour,
Lib-Dem, UKIP or the BNP, you'll be voting for the EU dictatorship.
All five party leaderships are EU controlled. That's why your vote
doesn't make a difference - all these five parties have the same
policies: the EU's policies.
The 17 most senior
politicians in the Conservative, Lib Dem and Labour parties,
including Ken Clarke, Francis Maude, Cameron, William Hague, George
Osborne, Nick Clegg, Brown, David and Ed Milliband, Ed Balls, Peter
Mandleson are Bilderbergers, the 140 strong band of ultra senior
Freemasons who are bribed by the EU to build the EU dictatorship.
No Bilderberger, Freemason or Common Purpose graduate should ever
be allowed to hold public office.
UKIP and the BNP are honey traps to neutralise activists: UKIP is
riddled with Freemasons and Common Purpose like a cancer, and the
BNP controlled by the Edgar Griffin (father) and son Nick
Freemasonry family. The 350,000 freemasons and the 40,000 strong
Common Purpose Organisation are the (mostly unknowing) foot soldiers
of the EU in Britain. (Which makes the BNP the easiest party to
clean up - get rid of the Griffins, and put in a real anti-EU
