BNP short of candidates to take Barking and Dagenham

The British National Party's hopes of seizing Barking and Dagenham council suffered a blow today after it emerged it is fielding only 34 candidates

The far-right party holds 12 seats and would need 14 more to take the council, but eight of the wards it is contesting are Labour strongholds. Until a few days ago it was confident it would have candidates standing in all 51 wards. There are questions over several BNP hopefuls after it was reported they registered at “front addresses” to get round rules that candidates must live in the area.

Dagenham Labour MP Jon Cruddas said: “It's clear on the doorstep that local residents are turning away from the extreme politics of the BNP. The fact that they have really struggled to get local candidates to stand in the council elections, suggests the chances of them creating the political earthquake they said they would in the borough, are diminishing by the day.”

I thought this was their strongest area and they can't find enough candidates? Strange. Just goes to show that the BNP may have a voter base there but people are still shy about sticking their necks out and getting really involved.

Has the full list of Fascist candidate's names in Barking been published yet? If so we can identify the ones who don't live in the borough and expose them.

This Italian Fascist Giuseppe De Santis, is contesting a ward in Barking using 34, Sylvan Avenue, Chadwell Heath as a false address, he has been a member of the Neo-Nazi party in his home country. He really lives in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Marshall is also using the same address.

Herein lies the difference between loose, ignorant sympathy and hardline support for the BNP. If anti-fascists could separate the activist rump from their voter base their influence would be negligible.

At least 5 Fascist contesting wards in Barking who don't really live there, Bailey, Roberts, Butler, Cardy, Marshall and De Santis, what are the authorities going to do about this fraud? These creeps lied on their nomination papers and should be taken off the ballot paper reducing the number to 39 candidates.

This drug dealing Nazi must be exposed tomorrow!

dear username "jefferson sucks cocks".

We oppose the BNP because they are a fascist, racist and homophobic party.

So what if Jefferson "sucks cocks"? There's nowt wrong with sucking cock, if thats what two consenting adults want to do. Jefferson is scum because he is promoting a fascist party capable of one day bringing about ethnic cleansing and genocide.

Kindly modify your language and apologise to your gay antifascist comrades who fight the enemy alongside you.
There is no more room for homophobia in the antifascist movement than there is for racism. Understand?

Now lets bring down this ridiculous Jefferson character.

Agreed and well said, Some of the 'campaigns' against barnbrook have veered on homophobic.

Not our proudest moments
