Following the announcement yesterday from an Essex pub that from now on, non-white citizens would have the right to join the BNP as full members, security staff on the pub door told us that they expected a scramble from ethnic minorities for application forms.
BNP leader Nick Griffin stated that the relaxation of strict membership requirements was proof that the BNP are not a racist political party.
It would appear though that the BNP do still appear to have issues with journalists from quality newspapers, as evidenced by the ejection from the meeting of a journalist from The Times.
Professor Algernon Headfeck, Britain's leading authority on hopelessly misguided political parties told us that the initiative clearly showed that the BNP was opening its doors to progressive politics, and that by turning its back on its racist history, the BNP was proudly amalgamating itself into mainstream politics.
Which, according to Clash War member Ivor Redhead was a "load of absolute bullshit." He assured us that the BNP were definitely not holding out an olive branch to ethnic minorities, but that they'd only passed the motion because they'd been forced into it by the law of the land and the constitution.
Which may contain a grain or two of truth, considering that we didn't see any ethnic minorities scrambling to join the BNP. Maybe we received the wrong messages from the wrong sources. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
More as we get it.
