BNP accuse UKIP of stealing their policies

British National Party leader Nick Griffin has accused Ukip of recycling and softening their hardline anti-immigration policy.

Mr Griffin made the remarks after Ukip council candidate William Henwood told Lenny Henry to emigrate to a black country.

Henwood, who is standing in a council election in Enfield, north London, made the comment on Twitter in response to a speech by Henry in which he said ethnic minorities were under-represented on British television.

“He should emigrate to a black country. He does not have to live with whites,” Mr Henwood posted.

‘Defending’  the remark, Mr Henwood told the BBC: “I think if black people come to this country and don’t like mixing with white people why are they here? If he (Henry) wants a lot of blacks around go and live in a black country.”

Griffin told the BBC: “If you look at Ukip they are using all our rhetoric, they are using our slogans, they are recycling our posters and people like it.

> Some people like it, Nick.  Mainly the sort of people who thought your views represented balanced social comment.

“The only difference is that Ukip won’t deliver. Their actual policy is a 50,000 net increase in immigration every year.

“When they talk about balanced migration what Farage actually means is for every Brit who leaves Britain, they’d be happy to let a Pakistani or an Afghan in, which means their policy is actually about 300,000 new immigrants a year.

“Our policy is simple: shut the door, we don’t want anyone – black, brown, green or white.

“I think if the public get to understand that then Ukip’s vote is going to meltdown as they come under the scrutiny they deserve.”

> Weirdly, I find myself agreeing with Nick Griffin ! Only on this last point, mind… vote for UKIP, vote for the new British fascist party.
