Nick Griffin is only too right: "The Tories have taken the Forces vote for granted, and these Generals are Tories." And "most young squaddies vote BNP." If they vote at all, that is.
It is simply a fact that military commanders as well as politicians were tried, convicted and executed at Nuremeburg, although that was a trial of whoever could be rounded up rather than strictly of everyone who should have been there and no one who shouldn't; there were three acquittals, and one defendant was wrongly indicted because they had thought he was his son. It was not the trial of the Holocaust, which only became apparent while the hearings were going on. And its key innovation, making it illegal to wage an aggressive war at all, has never been invoked again. But it could be. Starting, I propose, with George Bush and Tony Blair.
The good news, however, is that Griffin is alienating his own base, saying that the Gurkhas should be let in, praising Johnson Beharry, and so on. His proposal for a Sikh Regiment of the British Army revives an admirable Sikh scheme which was found to be illegal under race relations legislation, against which that revival is therefore an attack. Mercifully, it will do him no good. He has claimed in the past that Sikhs vote BNP. They don't. And they won't. His European Election Broadcast not only appealed directly to the Irish and the Jews, but went as far as possible without saying the words to appeal to the West Indians as well. That sort of thing cannot go down well within and around the BNP. Of course, those groups do not want large numbers of people here who cannot speak English, at least the Irish and the West Indians do not want non-Christian festivals as public holidays, and so on. Like their Anglo-Saxon and other neighbours, they deserve candidates who agree with them.
The BNP wants to abolish the monarchy, as is only understandable when one considers, both that it links this country to those such as Johnson Baharry's, and that the Queen is ineligible for BNP membership, being descended both from the "negroid" Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, and, via Elizabeth of York, from Muhammad. The monarchy was abolished by apartheid South Africa, and purportedly also by Ian Smith's Rhodesia. The BNP comes out of the most consistently Eurofederalist tradition in this and many other countries, Fascists being all in favour of a European State, just not the one that currently exists. And the BNP is rapidly becoming a vehicle for English separatism, its wider world has always provided a home for Celtic no less than Norse or Anglo-Saxon cranks, and the National Front, when it was chaired by Andrew Brons, supported Ulster independence, no doubt seeing such a state as a potential bolthole so much nearer at hand than South Africa or Rhodesia.
Unite Against Fascism, indeed. Unite upon and around monarchism, Euroscepticism and Unionism.
