End of the BNP?

This looks pretty serious for the party, and seems to spell the end for Nick Griffin. When or if the BNP implodes, there may then be room for a genuine nationalist party, without the taint and the baggage of the existing construct.

On the other hand, this may be an opportunity for UKIP, except that that party also has its stresses. It is in no better a position to offer a coherent message than the BNP. It seems to me, therefore, that the message must transcend party, and appeal directly to the electorate – then to have not one but all of the political parties embrace it as a survival stratagem. Political parties, as such, no longer seem to work. We need to introduce a new paradigm. The new media possibly affords the opportunity to make that happen.
