BNP’s constitutional change means nothing (Lancaster Unity)

After the legal issue arose on BNP membership following a challenge from the Equality and Human Rights Commission (LINK) that started the ball rolling for the Party to change their constitution to scrap the whites only rule for BNP Membership, the British National Party have now made the necessary changes to make this possible. However, does this equate to a shift in the Party and its ideals? Judging by what LabourList and Lancaster Unity have uncovered, I think not.

In the Guardian Today

The Labour MP for Brent South, Dawn Butler, is one of only two black women MPs and the first elected black woman Government Minister. The MP for the other constituency which will be merged into the new Brent Central seat is Liberal Democrat Sarah Teather. Ms Teather has appeared on Question Time on at least four occasions since the 2005 election and on no less than three times this year. Dawn Butler has never been invited to appear. We are truly alarmed that Nick Griffin will now appear on Question Time before Britain’s first elected black woman Government Minister. We wonder if the apparent bias against Dawn Butler is symptomatic of what Greg Dyke once called “a hideously white organisation”.
