Building up the BNP

MORALE boosting comment in The Guardian this morning. The more columnists harp on about this, the more it's going to become set in the public psyche and must benefit us come election time.

I normally switch off 'Thought for the Day' on Radio 4 Today programme but there was quite a good one this morning from Canon Dr Alan Billings, an Anglican priest. I suppose it's the nostalgia content that got me hooked.

There was a very good election result for us in Herne Bay on Thursday.
Kent County Council
Herne Bay ward
Thursday, 9 October 2008
Con 2474 47.7% (+7.6%)
LD 1524 29.4% (-3.3%)
Lab 537 10.4% (-13.1%)
BNP 399 7.7% (N/A) 1st time standing
UKIP 252 4.9% (+1.3%)
Swing 5.6% Lib Dem to Con. T/O: 23.21%

It was especially pleasing because I know that our candidate Dennis Whiting has in the main been the lone BNP voice in the area and had been feeling a bit depressed that the BNP hadn't been making progress.
The result will certainly provide an incentive for the Party to now go on and grow. South East Regional Organiser Andy McBride told me briefly about the campaign
"Dennis a ran a good campaign at very short notice in an area never visited by the British National Party before. We gained good support and a foothold in yet another Tory controlled area of Kent. The British National Party once again pushed UKIP into last place by attracting a much better than expected 399 votes."

The BNP could of beaten labour if only the UKIP supporters could see sense.
