    BNP Left with Just Three Seats

    From Google hosted news

    The British National Party has suffered a major setback in the local elections, losing six council seats.

    Campaign group Hope Not Hate said the results left the BNP with just three councillors in England.

    The BNP said all parties had suffered at the expense of Ed Miliband's resurgent Labour.

    The far-right party's leader Nick Griffin said on Twitter: "Hammered by Labour - same as everyone. No surprise, no disgrace."

    A message to activists on the party's website said: "How can Labour take seats off us when Miliband is so unpopular? Is there something wrong with the British National Party or the public?

    "The answer is that once the results are all in, Labour will be seen to have taken seats off everyone. And yet again, the plain truth is that this includes the BNP.

    "Why? Because voters wanted to punish the LibDems and teach the Tories a lesson, and because - since nationalism's voter base is overwhelmingly working class, nationalist parties always do far better in elections when Labour is in power.

    "When Labour is in opposition people unfortunately forget their misdeeds when in power."

    Conservative Party co-chairwoman Baroness Warsi earlier linked the rise of the UK Independence Party (Ukip) with the decline of the BNP.

    Lady Warsi appeared to suggest the number of candidates fielded by the eurosceptics had risen in line with a fall in the number standing for the BNP - a link which provoked Ukip's spokesman Gawain Towler to brand her "a bitch", though he later apologised.

    A Look at Far Right Parties in Europe

    For comparison


    Here are some of Europe's far-right parties and their status:

    FRANCE: National Front. Leader Marine Le Pen won nearly 18 percent of vote in April's first round of presidential elections. Eyeing seats in June parliamentary elections.

    GREECE: Golden Dawn. A neo-Nazi party that is one of Europe's most extreme. Prospering with pain of austerity program. Could take a dozen seats in May 6 parliamentary election.

    NETHERLANDS: Freedom Party. Led by Geert Wilders, it's third-largest in parliament, brought down minority government by withdrawing support.

    AUSTRIA: Freedom Party, 34 of 183 seats in parliament, second-strongest party in opinion polls.

    BRITAIN: British National Party. Membership restricted to "indigenous British people [incorrect]." Ten local councillors [now 3], down from 50 in 2008.

    GERMANY: NPD. In 2 of 16 state legislators but no seats in national parliament. Support base in former Communist east German states where unemployment, discontent high.

    NORWAY: Progress Party in Norway. Holds 41 of 169 seats in parliament. Norway's biggest opposition party. More moderate than many European counterparts.

    DENMARK: Danish People's Party. Third largest party. Was kingmaker in parliament for 10 years. Pushed Denmark to adopt some of Europe's strictest immigration laws.

    SWEDEN: Sweden Democrats. Entered parliament in 2010 with 19 of 349 seats but no major impact on legislation.

    FINLAND: The Finns. Won 19 percent of parliamentary election votes in 2011 — up from 4 percent four years earlier.

    HUNGARY: Jobbik. Won nearly 17 percent of 2010 vote. One of two leading opposition parties. Also, conservative Fidesz party of Prime Minister Viktor Orban passing laws restricting civil rights, basic freedoms that go against its EU membership.

    Islamophobia and apologies may work as a political stategy on the continent but it isnt working here. Perhaps the BNP should return to its core issues of race, immigration and the Jews. That way it might get more respect from the public. The real BNP has been silenced for long enough and for what... 3 council seats in the whole country? Tens of thousands of Brits, maybe hundreds of thousands could have come over to radical nationalism during the last decade if the BNP had stuck to its own ideology. How many decades does our nation have left, with 30% of births in the UK now to immigrant parents? Time is running out and the present BNP stategy isnt working.

    The BNP has lost all it's seats because most of the BNP supporters and members have left. Britain has the potential for huge nationalist support, but the BNP was not designed to capitalise on it, the BNP was designed to be a radical party, not a party of widespread support.

    Sort of like Oswald Mosely's gang?

    Anyways, at least here in the U.S. the grassroots alternative exists in the form of the Tea Party (which isn't a party but more a movement of working-class voters), which has often suffered because they've fielded too many candidates in a given election and the establishment simply divides and conquers. Has the BNP done something similar?

    Perhaps at last, the downfall of the BNP shows that this is not going to be a revolution of parliamentary parties, but will be almost exclusively reached by extra-parliamentary activists. The organised English movement is just a little slow in this, some of them are still looking for sponsors for their dozen-odd war horses rather than just riding into the night as they stand.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    I wouldn't be surprised if the party is completely dead soon due to the kind of people it chooses for leadership positions.

    I would never vote BNP and never have. I'm a English republican sepratist and they don't really represent anybody out of the "Glasgow Rangers Loyalist" circle of people.

    English Peoples party or Liberation front would get my vote.

    The English Peoples Party looks like a non-Party and appears to be lacking common sense. They made no attempts to build up support in at least one area with elections this year? Their policies seem to be very similar to the English Democrats to so I don't see their relevance. Theirs are fair few small nationalist parties kicking about in the south to.

    The 'Liberation front' I can't even find on the internet.

    A great pity. As a national anarchist, but also as a pragmatist, I always voted BNP given the opportunity. Get behind the groundswell first, then go for the inevitable English alternative.

    Griffin's twitter comment is shameful. What a diiference three years makes.
