BNP says some members are oddballs and liars

The British National party is urging its members not to set up official party blogs in the run-up to this year’s European elections because “they can’t write proper English” and “get carried away with conspiracy theories”, according to a leaked internal guide for senior party activists.

The handbook says that some BNP members are “oddballs”, “Walter Mitty characters”, “compulsive liars” and “born troublemakers”, and advises activists: “If you hear something odd or unpleasant about someone either forget about it or ask them about it to their face.”

Polling experts believe that the far-right party, led by Nick Griffin, has a chance of picking up its first seats in the European parliament in the June elections.

The handbook states that “while we cannot stop individuals using the internet … the BNP does not allow members or units to run websites or blogs which use the BNP logo or party name in their title, or which give the impression of being official BNP operations”. Instead, members are advised to “set up political sites which appear to be totally independent of any political party, including ours”.
