WHEN the British National Party won two European Parliament seats in July last year many politicians went on record to say this was due to traditional parties no longer asking the public for their input and becoming disconnected from voters.
BNP leader Nick Griffin last week publicly asked for questions to put to Her Majesty the Queen before attending a Buckingham Palace garden party on the slim chance that he met her. As a result, he was barred from the event.
Fortunately, thanks to the news coverage this generated and the fact that most people in this country appreciate fairness and object to double standards, this action has highlighted the struggle faced by the BNP to ensure genuine equality and given our support a tremendous boost.
My thanks to all those involved.
