BNP loses heavily in local and regional elections 2011



 
Election results from yesterday’s local and regional elections are being declared today and news that the BNP has suffered further losses to its number of council seats held.

From the BBC:

“After 207 council election results, the anti-immigration party had won one seat with a net loss of nine councillors.

“The BNP lost all five of its seats in Stoke-on-Trent, where it launched its election campaign in England, and one of its two councillors in Burnley.

“BNP candidates finished ahead of Liberal Democrats in four seats in the Welsh Assembly, but failed to win any.

“Before the vote, party leader Nick Griffin said he was confident a candidate would reach the 7% needed to gain a seat, but none reached the threshold.”


The BNP won two seats in the European Parliament elections in June 2009. It suffered a major setback in the local and general election in May 2010 when it lost almost half its local council seats including all 12 seats on Barking Council in east London.

Today’s news will be greeted with joy by all those who have actively campaigned against the racist, anti-Muslim policies of the BNP and electoral campaigns run by its candidates.
