BNP loses councillor just a week after the local elections

Mark Leat, the Longton North BNP councillor on Stoke Council has decided he's had enough of the fascist BNP and stumbled across the council chamber to become a non-aligned Independent, thus wiping out in a single embarrassing go the staggering single extra seat that the BNP made at last week's local government elections.

So, after putting up the record number of 750 candidates and ploughing a phenomenal amount of money into the campaign - delivering up to six campaign leaflets in some areas, we're told - the party has ended up precisely where it started.

Leat's only claim to fame is a bit of BNP self-promotion when a pre-election Voice of Freedom article claimed the party was achieving credibility following his award of chairman of the Health Commission. Following this, the party claimed it was 'working towards the day when the BNP hold the majority on Stoke Council'. That's put an end to that plan.

More info as and when we get it...

Thanks to our friends at Kirklees Unity for the tip-off. :-)

Hahaha, I believe this brings total BNP gains at the last local elections to zero.

Rumour has it Griffin was going to turn up in Kirklees last week to "celebrate" the seven seats they expected to win.

I wonder at what point the telephone call was made to Herr Griffin?

I guess fairly early
