Many who are considering voting for the BNP try to justify themselves in various ways. This is why they should think again.
1. It believes in punishing the troughing Pigs (the MPs).
The BNP are not explicit on this. If it is prosecuting those who are guilty of fraud, then a small minority will be prosecuted. Most MPs acted within the rules and on advice from the Fees Office. If the BNP obtained power do they impy they would restrospectively change the law to prosecute these opposition politicians, or just use this as an excuse to imprison the opponents.
2. A vote against the Muslims
The public face of the BNP is
“The British National Party is opposed to the Islamification of Britain in the same way that Muslim countries would be opposed to the Christianisation of their lands, and bears no animosity to any individual Muslim.”
So the leadership is at odds with their supporters?
3. A vote against Immigration
The BNP says
We call for an immediate halt to all further immigration, the immediate deportation of criminal and illegal immigrants, and the introduction of a system of voluntary resettlement whereby those immigrants who are legally here will be afforded the opportunity to return to their lands of ethnic origin assisted by a generous financial incentives both for individuals and for the countries in question.
Problem is that many of the most disliked immigrants – such as Asian muslims – are British born and British citizens. You will not turn Bradford or Burnley white by this policy. Also “voluntary resettlement” will not only include lots of taxpayer’s money, but also plenty of sticks.
4. Clamping down on Crime
Getting tough on crime does little to reduce it. With all the political prisoners, the BNP would have to build special prison camps.
5. Going after the Greedy Bankers
Like for the MPs, would this mean restrospectively changing the law, or just rounding them up?
6. Curing the Economic Crisis
Any prospect of BNP in government would cause a massive capital flight, and no foreign investment. That is unless the BNP so changes that it alienates it’s core voters. Beyond Nick Griffin, the leadership are generally clueless.
7. Backing a Christian Country.
Jesus’s core message was a very positive one. It is about loving the Lord your God first and your neighbour second – with all the rest following from that. (Matt 22: 37-40). It is about recognising our own faults, forgiving past wrongs done to us and helping others. In British culture it comes through in the ideas of playing fair, assuming people innocent until proven guilty, integrity in public life, giving sanctuary to oppressed minorities and voluntary work.
Further, if the BNP is so keen on emphasising that this is a Christian culture, why no greater promotion of Christianity in our schools?
Christianity is ingrained into British culture. By forgetting the positive role of the national religion, they are showing themselves to be an anti-British party.
