“The BNP is today in deep crisis after the expulsion from the party of two of its national officers. According to a notice posted on Sunday 9 December on the revamped BNP website, Sadie Graham, the partyâ€™s hard-working group development officer, and Kenny Smith, in charge of administration, have been â€œremoved from their posts with immediate effect on the grounds of gross misconduct and now face disciplinary charges over alleged offences against the BNP Constitution and Code of Conductâ€.
It appears that a number of other people, including several organisers and councillors, have also left the party. As this site goes live it seems that five of the partyâ€™s regional organisers have resigned, four BNP councillors have withdrawn the whip and are now Independent Nationalist councillors, five Advisory Council members are backing the rebellion as are several other local branch organisers. There further resignations in the pipeline.”
Could this be the beginning of the end for this deeply unpleasant party and their ideology, or will there always be some level of support for these type of groups? Will what the BNP represents ever truly be vanquished?
