Is the expulsion of Richard Barnbrook a sign of the BNP being about to fall apart?

Will Griffin be the only one left soon?

    bad day for democracy when a parties views are effectively banned and it is hounded into bankruptcy, I don't agree with all this forcing them to remove racist policies, because effectively they are a racist party.

    The people in the party are so dogmatic, that the party will have no problem destroying itself. Some of the elected councillors in places like Burnley ended up excluded from meetings for fighting with each other over their own issues.

    A party that is based on hatred is always going to have problems, because its members are always full of hate, even hatred for those they work amongst.

    The BNP has been falling apart for a while, who can actually name anyone other than Griffin in the BNP now?

    But then the BNP was an off shoot of the NF which happened because party members started hating each other more than usual. This is not unusual, it will always happen. These parties want power, but do not have the power to do so.

    As for the person who said it is asad day for democracy, how? When a party that A) does not have enough support to get a single MP, does not have enough support to pay for the lavishness of a national political party able to stand everywhere. If the BNP had not gone out and tried to stand in so many place, they would not have lost so much money in seats they were never going to retain their money.

    You cannot say it is bad for democracy when a party that does not represent the vast, vast majority of the electorate, actively opposed a large percentage of the electorate and reviles an even bigger percentage. It is a good day for demcracy, it proves that democracy has the ability to protect itself against such parties.

    Yes I read that Barnbrook was expelled from the Party. The Party is dominated by personality of their Fuhrer and neo-nazi Nick Griffin. Their whole ideology is based on hate racist agenda. There are strong indications that the party is falling apart

    Don't know who he is, never heard of him, the BNP is a con they have no intention of ever being a serious challenge to the three main parties, all they are interested in is getting as many mugs as possible to pay a fee to join their party.

    Its all a con, and people fall for it.

    Wonder who'll tell him the 'party' has left the building. Sadly though out of that rabble something no doubt nastier will rise from the ashes.
