This is a sad morning for all those in Britain who believe in equality and freedom. For the first time ever Britain has elected members of a fascist, racist party to a legislative body. The reasons for this are complex and complicated and in the past few weeks and months I have been expressing my concerns about the failure of the main parties (particularly my own party, Labour) to address the needs of many white working class men and women. What can we do? In the medium to long terms we need a new 'coalition of the willing' that can counter the BNP's message of hate, division and despair. In the short term The Hope not Hate campaign is organising an on-line petition (NOT IN MY NAME) which will be handed into the European Parliament on the day that the BNP take their seats.
