    I watched a program where one of their members was talking to a woman who opposed their campaigns. The woman said "I don't mind a diverse community" to which the BNP member replied "You will when they [Muslims] rape your daughter" :|

    Kind of says it all really.

    It's easy to throw around loose terms and trigger words such as...

    "the dilution of identity"
    "large scale racial mixing"
    "globalised, mono-ethnic"
    Heh.

    And damn if I haven't already used up my rep on Melancholy today!

    No, not really.
    But aside from the old 'British jobs for British workers' debacle and the inability to govern, 'tanking the British economy' and lack of policies (buzzwords like '10% cut' and the theft of Tory policies come to mind), it's nothing like the BNP.

    Ah right, cheers :top:

    That seems awfully nice and liberal of them, a wee bit out of character for them to say "we believe this, but we believe more in the individual's right to choose for themselves". Almost libertarian, I wonder if they would apply the same policy to drugs and the like?
    It isn't out of character at all- on an individual basis, most people can see mixed relationships can be just as successful and happy as non mixed ones. This does fit in line with their other policies- they aren't for a massive government imposing it's will upon the people as much as people would like to think.

    As for drugs,the BNP take the stance that it is the job of the government to protect it's people.

    Really? Aren't you underestimating what we'd gain from reducing susidies and increasing trade with the commonwealth, specifically Canada.
    How would trade increase with Canada and the Commonwealth? How would subsidies be reduced? The BNP advocate strongly protecting British industry and securing British jobs against foreign imports, which would lead to a decrease in real wages and effieincy, not an increase. Where are you getting this from.

    Hopefully that will change. I wouldn't consider myself 'liberally minded' though. And you shouldn't imply that it's such a positive thing.
    I think having your citizens free from the whims of a random group of ragtag idiots in government is a positive thing. If you disagree, please, provide reasons.

    The word that stands out to me is FORMER. As their popularity grows so will the quality and quantity of their MPs.
    So until that actually happens, you agree that voting BNP is voting for low quality, no-hoper, former neo-nazis? Really selling it here.

    The EU contains France and Germany, these are the only countries that interest me. Why we have to involve ****** economies is beyond me, give them back to Russia I say.
    Thanks for proving my point.

    Their far left protectionist policies are enough to turn anyone off. The economy would shrink even during times of global boom.

    You are a racist because the only one of those entities you managed to spell right is the one for whites.

    Again, if you feel that your national identity is being challenged, I think that's more your problem than anything else. I think you need to get a bit more patriotic if your pride is shaken by the fact there are whites marrying other colours.
    Unlike short-sighted liberals and the political establishment, I tend to look towards the future rather than the situation at present. The problem clearly isn't a personal one, but one which threatens future generations of Brits even more so than it does me today.

    In light of a couple of posts here - anyone picking holes in the BNP simply because they are a socialist party need to really re-evaluate their politics.

    To find more fault in a party because they are economically left-wing than because they are racists and nationalists is, frankly, ludicrous.

    And I would argue that identity and culture should not be based on skin colour and the mono-ethnicity is not really a possible outcome in the future since the vast majority of people do marry inside their own race.
    I am not suggesting they are based on skin colour, but instead on ethnicity. There is a very big difference between the two. Whether you like it or not, British culture and identity today have been formed as a result of previous British ethnicity and patriotism.

    Difference is, I was using them as part of my arguement to contribute to the discussion.

    Throwing around "nazi!" and "racist!" when they hold no relevance to the discussion at hand is nothing less than a pathetic attempt to avoid discussion and stereotype the BNP and their voters.

    One of the elements of British ethnicity is that you are white. It doesn't make race the primary motive- the primary motive is clearly being an indigenous Brit.
    Would they reject a Polish young man whose parents live in Poland, who was raised in Poland until his teenage years but who now lives and works here and has a British passport?

    ...and nationalists...
    Hold on, since when has nationalism per se been anything negative? In the 'grand scheme' essentially everybody prior to 1789 had strong commitment to their nation, collective, state or tribe. Indeed, this was a must. People relied on their state. Nationalist sentiment got Britain through two World Wars; nationalist sentiment kept the French Free Resistance going; nationalist sentiment overthrew apartheid. Pray...tell!

    How delightfully ridiculous.

    It's a white only party.

    So that's great social perspective isn't it.

    ABSOLUTE RUBBISH!!!

    I don't understand why people speak of being left-wing as being so negative. I actually see it as a compliment as it's a rational and tolerant political stance. I have been described as a woolly liberal, but I fail to see the negative connotation. Stephen Fry, Rowan Atkinson, Eddie Izzard are all very left wing for god sake!!!!

    Nah, you wanna use your buzz-words but rubbish the terms others use. And, the BNP are neo-Nazis and racists. Their policy, of voluntary removal of those they deem not to be 'ethnically British', is extremely and radically racist. They disapprove of 'mixed-race' relationships and marriages too, more obvious racism.

    The claim that the BNP are a racist party isn't going to go away because their policies show them to be exactly that.
