    You believe Islam shouldn't be present in Britain but you say Labour stands for a fair and equal society without discrimination? And I quote from another thread you posted in, "Labour: To create a more equal and fairer society in which people are looked after and not discriminated against unfairly."
    Slightly hypocritical my friend.

    The same goes for getting rid of the BNP; how could you justify stopping people from exercising their right to free speech by getting rid of parties you disagree with and still believe in an equal and fair society? I don't agree with what the BNP stands for myself, but I accept that they should be allowed to exist.
    I believe intolerance should not be tolerated. My opposition to Islam is drawn from its fascist and discriminatory teachings. To say my opposition to Islam is in conflict with my belief in equality and fairness would be like saying my opposition to Nazis is in conflict with my belief in equality and fairness. If you want to be pedantic, it is, but technically you could say the same for everything I oppose.

    I don't believe in stopping people supporting the BNP. It has the right to exist, as does Islam. I just think we'd be better off without them.

    It's not really fascists. BNP voters tend to be racist because they're poor/desperate. The rich ones vote for UKIP, who are pretty bad, also. Tories appeal to fascists and rich people, (they are closer, obviously) and The Labour Party appeals to poor people and liberals. Fascism and socialism are completely different. Labour isn't racist, even if they share other policies with the BNP. It doesn't matter whether or not they have similar voters- most people really aren't that ideological.
    But only the fascists who believe in reducing government power? Oh dear.

    There'd have to be a huge jump in wages if they were to earn enough to make up for the increase in tax too. I'd say that's about £15-20,000 each. Not even your parents work that hard.
    They work hard enough to be able to afford private healthcare, holidays, cars...

    And yet they still don't write rants against services in which millions of poorer people rely on.

    I'm sure we'd all be able to afford much more than that if Our Masters in HMRC didn't take a sizeable percentage of our incomes.

    Given that my folks vote left-wing I don't think they're all that bothered about paying tax.

    No, and practicing Islam has made me a thoroughly better individual, even my little brother and neighbours notice it. I think Europe needs real Islam.
    Like it needs a hole in the head.

    The BNP who are racist can attract the poor and desperate because we have a liberal elite that doesn't really give a damn about working class british people. Most middle class people are raised to regard the working class as the feckless unworthy poor (unlike the worthy poor of the developing world). Middle class liberals are not really into social equality they are more into diversity which looks similar but isn't Sadly many of these people have infested the labour party-assuaging their middle class guilt over single issues such as gay rights ,and anti racism (all noble in their place). The cat was out of the bag when gordon brown-a communist compared to harriet 'right on harman'- when he called that core labour lady ' some sort of a bigot'.We live in a tonybee dictatorship where to be a christian is to be the object of abuse,but where liberal sensitivities wouldn't dare criticise (the bad interpretation of) islam for example.

    No. The BNP is a right wing, fascist and racist party.

    My disliking of the religion of Islam comes from a left wing perspective. My problem is not with Muslims, it is with Islam. I detest the Catholic Church, but that doesn't mean I hate Catholics.
    Damn that right wing party with its proposed nationalisation and commitment to increasing NHS spending!
