The racist party is funding around 655 candidates in this year’s Local Elections (Guardian), compared to 363 last year and just 221 in 2004. The Times has published an interview with Nick Griffin today, which I still found a bit nauseatingly rosy.
Blink have published a full list of BNP candidates contesting seats. The Methodist, United Reform and Baptist Union Churches have published a briefing document on racism and extremism on the elections. The Methodist Church has also produced guidelines with suggestions on how churches can respond to extremist political parties.
Brett at Harry’s Place points out how not voting helps the BNP.
