In his speech to a dinner at the Party Conference, Griffin said;
'We are going to start attending homecoming parades of British troops, and when the Islamic militants abuse our troops and threaten them, we are going to physically stand in their way',But more worrying I think, is the indication that such “protests” will also take place where there [are] efforts to construct Mosques.
The concerns are obvious. Violence between members of the Muslim community, and BNP members trying to ferment racially motivated violence for political advancement, will pose a major threat to social cohesion wherever it happens.
Bizarrely, Griffin also says;
'The British people have already shown that they are willing to start supporting the British National Party in increasing numbers'Perhaps he’s forgotten about the battering they took in May.
This could be one of two things. It’s entirely possible that this was simply intended as a crowd pleasing rant for members of an increasingly demoralised and fractured Party. A futile attempt at lifting the spirits of a group of people doomed to fail in the near future.
But it could also be an acknowledgment that the BNP’s efforts to legitimise itself, and add a little professionalism to its electoral efforts have failed. In which case this could be the first signs of a change in strategy to something reminiscent of the “National Front's” heyday. Perhaps it is an attempt to tap into what they perceive as an appetite for a more confrontational approach, such as that which has defined the EDL.
They’re changing the logo too. Maybe there’s a full re-branding taking place?
