The BNP and Council Cuts

One thing that you don't often find out about the BNP is what the actually stand for. By this I don't mean that many of their more longstanding members are racists and neo-nazis, some members and ex-members have been convicted of bomb making and things like that. I'm sure most people will have seen something by Hope Not Hate or Unite Against Fascism telling them that and then subtly appearing to suggest the best thing to do about is to vote Labour.

What I mean is what the BNP think should be done about such things as the economy, the likelihood of job cuts and so forth. That is apart from booting out immigrants and saying that they're different to the 'Westminster elite'

Well an opportunity to see this has arisen with the news that Kirklees council will be making anywhere from £250m to £400m worth of cuts, which could mean 20% of the 11,000 string council workforce losing their jobs.

In a comment to the Huddersfield Daily Examiner (Thursday, 17th September), BNP councillor Roger Roberts said

"This is long overdue, it has to be done..."

"The good thing is that a lot of the silly posts can disappear. I’ve always advocated that you could get rid of 25% of council staff and no-one would notice..."

I would imagine very few council workers would vote for the BNP after reading those comments. A leaflet that disseminates this information will be worth a thousand leaflets telling people about Nick Griffins 1998 conviction for inciting racial hatred.
