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.
