Swindon Nazis Given Marching Orders By Voters

The BNP skulked out of last night's elections with their tails between their legs.

The three candidates standing in Gorse Hill and Pinehurst, Parks and Penhill were all soundly defeated at the Oasis Leisure Centre.

They left without speaking after winning just 212 votes in Gorse Hill and Pinehurst, 223 votes in Parks and 162 in Penhill ward.

Penhill councillor David Glaholm said the party was a scurge on the town and he was glad to see the back of them. He said: "I'm really pleased to see them in fourth place in Penhill.

"It is encouraging to see that people who did not vote for the major parties chose not to vote for the BNP.

"They keep blaming ethnic minorities for society's problems and that is patently untrue.

"Unfortunately, there are those out there who believe the rubbish they speak and that is why I'm glad they have no further platform with which to express themselves."

Council leader Roderick Bluh said: "We are absolutely delighted. We don't want their politics in Swindon".
