Completely obliterated in the general election, the BNP's rout continued today as the party lost councillors wholesale in the simultaneous local elections.
On the BNP's showcase BARKING AND DAGENHAM council, where the BNP, with 12 councillors, formed the official opposition and expected to increase its presence, voters removed every councillor belonging to the racist party, making Barking and Dagenham BNP-free for the first time in years.
In Stoke on Trent, where the BNP had nine councillors and also formed the official opposition, two sitting councillors were ousted (two others defected from the racist party earlier this year), reducing their presence to five.
The party's two remaining councillors in SANDWELL were removed, as were its sole representatives in SOLIHULL and LEEDS. Other losses have been recorded in BURNLEY and still others are being reported even as we post.
Nick Griffin's failed strategy has left him exposed as an incompetent leader even to the most gullible among the slavishly pro-Griffin membership and efforts to topple him are gathering pace. Richard Barnbrook and ousted elections organiser Eddy Butler left the Barking and Dagenham count today openly discussing ways and means of deposing Griffin, who has completely lost control of events.
Whipped and humiliated from one end of the country to the other, disbelieving BNP members are wildly casting about for scapegoats on which to fix the blame for their political demise. The favourite seems to be the old "ballot rigging by the State" saw. Some, like the idiotic Paul Morris/Green Arrow, won't have Griffin blamed at all for the expensive catastrophe into which he led his easily deceived admirers, with the active conivance of political illiterates like Morris, who we presume is hitting the Tesco lager with a vengeance.
There are interesting times to come for Nick Griffin and an increasingly disaffected BNP membership - and we'll bring you every moment of them, with the greatest pleasure!
