    In some respects they are socially Conservative' but it's very crude and inaccurate to equate 'conservative' with 'right wing'. . 'Right' to be consistent with right wing economic policies emphasises individualism , while the BNP is collectivist, free school meals for all children for example, a big state, communist type policy. The BNP puts society not individual responsibility first. In this sense it's not unlike communism.
    BNP are not that left- they are just pro British people- they are by no means communists. Actually Far right is based on society. Conservative is more of an economic meaning then a social meaning Corbyn's Labour is economically communist

    No not communist, but they share some of the authoritarian socialist features. They do not put individuals first they put society first, British society. Conservative is not a reference to economics so much as tradition, 'conserving' what we've got, our countryside, traditions, our social structure, slow change not actively seeking change like the 'progressives'.
    Not sure about Corby.

    Progressives are stupid though I would love to see a Farageite government- I know it wouldn't happen but there is too much immigration here and the left can not see it is really affecting the quality of our life. The old left including my dad who believes in left wing economics is socially conservative
