The BNP will decide today whether to change its whites-only membership policy and allow black and Asian people to join.
An extraordinary general meeting of its members was arranged after the Central London County Court told the party to amend its constitution to comply with race relations laws or face legal action by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC).
After the hearing on January 28, the BNP sent letters to its 14,000 members in order to allow for the 14 days needed to alert them to the proposed changes.

I find this quite comical to be honest.
Where are the black or Asian's who actually want to join the BNP ?
Be like turkeys voting for Christmas.
No Asian or Black people would sign up to them. Why would they? When they have no rights through them and they continually insult them.

I would argue that the main parties (Labour/conservative) need to evolve so that their policies help to better control immigration and the handling of illegal immigrants...
Good point but I would like to remind you that the corporate world governs us all and it is the agenda of the corporate governments which dictates that there should be an illegal immigration .
Perhaps , the BNP is unwittingly providing the drive for the Labour / Conservatives to evolve .
It is a testament to power of political process which is taking place in front of our very voting eyes .
And therefore stop providing food for the far right argument and prevent horrible little men like Nick Griffin gaining a following that is anything other than a bunch of knuckle head thugs!
I do not know Nick Griffin but he doesn't sound like an outright racist nowadays .
He must of learnt to curve his personal views and establish a more publicly acceptable political strategy .
After all , you can always retrospectively change the laws . But if this is indeed what the BNP are playing , then , I am afraid they are on the wrong path .
I am British - a naturalised one - and I have tought my kids to be proud of being Human first and British second .
I would also like the media take better responsibility when reporting on these issues and stop using tactics that are blatantly designed to inflame opinions and stir up hate...
Muslims want an Islamic NHS
Now to look at the title of this article you can see that it is designed to shock... it uses the word "Muslims" not the more accurate title of "one Muslim"
This implies that this is some group effort by all Muslims to take over the NHS... when in reality it was just one man’s suggestion (a stupid one admittedly)
Of course this is done simply because the more shocking a newspaper headline is... the more copy’s it will sell... sad but true!!
I agree that the media and it's ongoing war against muslims-islams is overblown and it is design to make all of us submit to a lesser civil existence .
My media friends would say that if people did not ' like it ' , there would be no demand for it .
I still remember the cold war and how ALL Soviets were evil and that if I owned 5 pairs of jeans , when the communists came , they would take 4 of them and give it to those who not have any .
But it is this type of inflammatory and misguided reporting that gives strength to the more extreme segments of the political arena!!
A reporter from The Times has been thrown out of a BNP general meeting where members voted to scrap the party's rule on non-white members.
