  1. British National Party By: Jake Z. and Rylie B.

  2. Ideology • The British National Party (BNP) is a far right political party in the UK. • The BNP platform is centered on keeping the immigrants from areas outside of the UK out of the UK, saying that everyone benefits even themselves by leaving and returning to where they came from.

  3. Party Manifesto • One of their goals is to restore British industry and build the nation’s infrastructure to constitutional reform in order to guarantee the people’s liberties and freedoms. • They also believe in anti-immigration rhetoric, advocate capital punishment for serious offences, and oppose same-sex marriage and what it perceives as the Islamification of the United Kingdom • They are considered by many to be fascist, though they deny the title.

  4. Current Leaders • Originally formed by John Tyndall • Currently lead by Nick Griffin

  5. Main Supporters • They are very criticized in the British community. They have been shot down by The Royal British Legion as well as the prime minister, David Cameron. Many of the criticisms come from the fact that they embody many fascist beliefs. • Though they do not have many supporters and have failed to receive any seats in the European Parliament, their ideas have lead to many sub groups made of former BNP members.
