Green Party Encouraging BNP Supporters to Vote

The Green Party has been advising activists to encourage BNP supporters they canvass to go out and vote. In a detailed pamphlet called “How to Win an Election”, written by Chris Williams, the Green Party’s Regional Manager for Elections, canvassers are advised:

“If they say BNP or UKIP, then do not tell them that there is no BNP or UKIP candidate … If they appear to be very anti-Labour, then we do want them to go to the polling station. When they get there, they will see no BNP or UKIP candidate, and so may vote Green instead.”

Guido suspects this loony strategy may be more of a vote-winner than a lot of Green ideas, but that’s not saying much…

Pendle Council Now Effectively Ruled By BNP-Lib-Lab Coalition

Until recently Pendle Borough Council in Lancashire had a LibDem – Labour coalition with a narrow 25 to 23 majority over the Tories, with one non-aligned BNP councillor.

The Lancashire Telegraph reports that Councillor Brian Parker, the sole British National Party representative on the council, has sided with Labour and the Lib Dems after securing a back-room deal to support the regeneration of land beside the railway in his Marsden ward. In return he voted with the Labour group leader Councillor Mohammed Iqbal against the Tory’s proposed council budget…

Tonight the local Tories have written to Jeremy Corbyn to ask him to intervene. Extraordinary…

End of the BNP

bnp-poster

Today marks the (at least temporary) end of the BNP after the Electoral Commission removed them from its official list of political parties for failing to re-register. The Electoral Commisssion statement says:

The BNP’s statement of accounts were due on 7 July 2015. Their annual confirmation of registered details was therefore due on or before 7 January 2016. The Electoral Commission did not receive the notification by this date and is required by law to remove the BNP from its register of political parties in Great Britain.

In truth they died at the ballot box years ago…
