The UK should really use single transferable vote proportional representation, especially in elections such as the EU ones

I agree, on the EU election.


It could work in other elections, but they would have to make the constituencies bigger so they were multi seat. Works best where you have at least 4 seats per constituency i think. One benefit is it might smooth out the boundary moving a bit that labour and the conservatives like to partake in whenever they are in power.
Not using it for the EU election is fairly ridiculous seeing the size of the constituencies and the fact they are already set out as multi seat. I presume the only reason they don't is they think we are too stupid to understand?

The policies of "voluntary repatronisation" for all "non-indiginous" peoples, complete UK withdrawal from the EU and not allowing membership to non-Caucasians all seem pretty far-right to me.

This pretty much makes the point I was making, but better.


so they're...nationalist socialists?

QUOTE ( re: BNP policy)
Our ideal for Britain is that of a clean, beautiful country, free of pollution in all its forms. We will enforce standards to curb those practices, whether by business or the individual, which cause environmental damage. “The polluter pays to clean up the mess” must become a fact of life, not an electioneering slogan.


They mean black people
My anger is a form of madness
And so I'd rather have hope than sadness

British National Party. They don't allow black people to join their "party".
I think it was Alex who put it so well. "Racists with PR".

I love the quotes they have on some of their promotional material. Apart from the fact that they have been found to make a load up, and buy photos of ordinary people from stock agencies, i saw one a year or two ago that read "I vote for the BNP because i am Irish, and the BNP are the only party that cares for the indigenous peoples of these islands. Our jobs are under threat from economic migrants and only the BNP will protect our intrests."
