Quick Reference

Founded in 1982 as an off‐shoot of the National Front, the BNP has no seats at Westminster, Cardiff or Edinburgh, but claims some 48 seats on local councils. Its constitution commits it to seek to restore ‘the white make‐up’ of Britain by encouraging voluntary repatriation. Its stance has moved from anti‐semitism to denunciation of fanatical Islamism. Other policies include the return of capital punishment, strong disapproval of homosexuality, and withdrawal from the European Union.
