Will the BNP get seats in the Euro election?

Arden Forester thinks the British National Party will win 2 or 3 seats in the European Parliamentary election, due this June:

With the BNP winning a safe Labour seat on Sevenoaks Council, the Labour hierachy is getting all in a tizzy. I can’t think why. They’ve never really bothered with the people they say they support. They are more concerned with feathering their own nests. The BNP has taken a coach and horses through Labour’s arrogant assumption that people on sink estates will vote for them. Well they won’t, not any more.

The truth is we will probably get two or three BNP Euro MEPs come June. What then? Will Nick Griffin MEP be banned from Question Time and other BBC outlets? The more the poncy brigade carry on, the deeper the BNP gets entrenched.

Actually one of the big things helping the BNP is the way the established parties go all horrified at the prospect of them winning seats. A lot of people feel alienated from the political classes and the power-structures of the state; and as the current recession bites, more and more people will feel this way.  These people feel let down by the Labour government, and most feel the Tories have nothing to offer them either, so they might as well stick two fingers up to the system by voting BNP.

    On the Northeast version of the Politics show, a few weeks ago, a local Labour MP confirmed he had refused to be on the same platform as the BNP rep.

    Since Labour are largely responsible for the growth of BNP voters in the North East and the North West due to their perceived desertion of the working classes and their now being seen as the party for Big Business, then this refusal has further alienated poorer working and middle class voters.

    For good or bad(I think bad) this has sent people over to the BNP because they feel the BNP are more in touch with them.

    I think also the new corruption amongst MEPs will fuel that anti maistream politics feelings that is going around.

    Though I do not want to see it, I feel there is a strong chance of one or more MEPs being elected for the BNP and it is entirely the fault of New Labour’s lining their pocket and ignoring their baseline Voters.

    Mainstream politicians seem not to be aware of how their seemingly corrupt antics are playing with the people who elect them.

    Well they are angry, and feel disenfranchised and the BNP have responded in a way which has made ordinary people feel listened to in a way the main parties have collectively failed to respond.

    History is cyclical and society is moving towards protectionism and insularity.

    It’ll be interesting to see if that continues if the BNP get some MEPs. If it does, some people will interprete it as meaning that they are scaredc to debate with the BNP because they know they will lose.

      WAKEN UP,? before your children and grandchildren have to pay a terrible price.?

      And what “terrible price” would that be? As I understand it, the BNP want to kick all non-white people out of the country. I have friends and family who are non-white, they are not scary (in fact they’re pretty much the same as anyone else).

        All asylum seekers, ( If you understand the international law on seeking asylum ).? ILLEGAL immigrants, CRIMINAL immigrants for severe offences.?
        You obviously haven’t read the BNP policies, like thousands of people you are listening to hearsay and not bothering to find the facts for yourself.?
        May I suggest most humbly that you visit bnp.org and check the policy section.?
        By the way I to have friends from abroad who have INTEGRATED into our way of life..
        If they are here LEGALLY then they have nothing to fear from the BNP.
        Goto the website and then tell me what you find in the policies that upsets you.? Thank-you.

          The BNP’s constitution — http://bnp.org.uk/resources/constitution-9th-edition/ — on page 3 states: “The British National Party stands for the preservation of the national and ethnic character of the British people and is wholly opposed to any form of racial integration between British and non-European peoples. It is therefore committed to stemming and reversing the tide of non-white immigration and to restoring, by legal changes, negotiation and consent, the overwhelmingly white makeup of the British population that existed in Britain prior to 1948.”

          In other words, they want the vast majority of non-white people (including mixed race people) out of the country. Clearly most of these people are only going to leave if serious pressure is put on them to do so, so in plain English the intention is to kick them out.

          Now, why should I want some of my friends and family kicked out of Britain?
