Information on this little lot is thin on the ground at present as they are basically a bunch of nobodies with chips on their shoulders. However The Blogger will be grateful for any information about them or their election campaigns (including their leaflets). Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
For people favouring an electoral response to the BNP The Blogger recommends a Labour vote in all wards.
The Liberal Democrats are deeply unreliable around anti-fascism and have happily supported BNP councillors in Burnley:
At a full meeting of Burnley Council on December 13th 2006 a position on a local regeneration board came up for renewal. When it came to the vote, there was a choice of only two candidates – a BNP Councillor or a Labour Councillor. The casting vote rested with the Lib Dem controlling group and they backed… the BNP councillor!
The Lib Dem responsible even told the local paper, Burnley Today, he backed ‘the better candidate’!
Similarly The Green Party, locally, are so flaky, politically naive and desperate for power it’s hard to predict what their approach to the BNP may be beyond the elections.
News just in: The BNP candidate for Yeovil, Robert Baehr, last ran as candidate in the town in 1993 for… Wait for it… The Green Party!
