For those without Sky, this was a worrying YouGov survey where over half of respondents agreed with BNP policies on immigration, and even when told that they were BNP policies, only a few less still supported them.
I have tended in the past to dismiss the BNP as irrelevant extremist nutters. I still think they are extremist nutters, but I’m becoming very uncomfortable with the number of people who think we can turn back the clock on our multi-ethnic society (even if we wanted to).
Protest votes are dangerous. Thanks to protest voting, we are lumbered with a dozen useless, half-baked UKIP MEPs. If people think voting BNP as a protest vote is a good idea, they would be well advised to seriously contemplate finding that the balance of power on their local council is now held by a group of fascists who pretended that their nasty, racist ideas had something to do with patriotism and freedom.
