The breaking news on the BBC’s website is that the BNP have split, with senior members accusing leader Nick Griffin of behaving like a “dictator”. Yes! Have you never heard of Hitler!
Other reports state that the party has split in two. So that’s two fascist, ultra right wing and racist parties we now have to contend with. The split occurred when two senior members were expelled by the Party for plotting against Mr Griffin (I wonder if they had “long knives”?). Their activities were discovered by an internal department headed up by an ex South African Intelligence Officer. An ex South African military man in the BNP? Now there’s a surprise!
Hopefully the BNP and is splinter groups will now politically implode. At least it will save local Council leaders from attacking their policies with a united front!
