Voters kick out the Nazis

Issue No. 2352

The election results exposed the forced retreat of the British National Party (BNP). 

The BNP once had over 50 council seats.

Now they are reduced to two district councillors who were not covered by the elections.

The BNP stood in fewer than 100 seats.

That’s less than a quarter of the candidates it stood last time these seats were contested in 2009.

But the campaign isn’t over.

Anti-fascist campaigners are going all out to make sure BNP leader Nick Griffin loses his seat in the European parliament next year. 

He only needs 8 percent of the vote to cling on.
