    Yes they are +2 so are nearer to the centre then everyone other than the SNP. . If the BNP moved to +5 on the economic scale they would be getting 50-60 seats

    FPTP would prevent them ever getting more than a handful.

    Wouldn't happen anyway. The BNP sympathies have historically been with national socialism.

    It's fair to say after looking at the BNP's performance after the London Mayoral election (albeit their demographic of voters may not be that of the typical London demographic ) they have a small pool of support, so little that even with a change of policy it is doubtful they'd have the pure momentum to gain popularity.

    Cameron is a Blair Reincarnation- he has copied everything which worked well for Blair, but has had to be a bit further right
    Disagree. Blair actually cared about the poor and public services, investing huge amounts into them.

    The Conservative Party led by a liberal conservative leader are far-right, while a populist pseudo-left Nationalist party is the centre?

    Sorry, I think I've fallen asleep and woken up in a dystopian novel.

    Yeah, 'cause they were having a great time of it under Saddam...

    ... in my experience, this line of argument is rarely more than a few ill-thought sentences away from "Oh, but Saddam wasn't so bad". He was. In addition to being a huge threat to countries beyond Iraq, he was a bloodthirsty, genocidal lunatic within it.

    We did not kill millions of Iraqis. Indeed, these ridiculously overblown figures - in addition to being hugely exaggerated - include the people our enemies killed... and you use it to blame Tony Blair? Tony Blair, who was expending considerable effort and investment in trying to stop these people? That's utterly perverse. Meanwhile the dictators and the terrorists and the scumbag governments funding Islamist militias to try to quash a democratic Iraq at its inception get off without criticism?

    **** that ****.
