BNP win local government seat in east London

The BNP, regarded by most people (including me) as a dangerous and racist Party, have won a seat on Barking and Dagenham Council, to represent the Goresbrook ward. I am not a supporter of Ken Livingstone, or the Labour Party (whether of the 'Old' or 'New' variety), but he is quite correct when he comments:

"The BNP is a fascist party. Wherever they are elected racist violence increases. Every concession to racism or Islamophobia by mainstream parties assists the BNP.

"These results show the BNP is now a bigger threat then (sic) ever before. Every progressive Londoner should wake up and join the movement to stop the BNP because they threaten everything which makes London such a wonderful diverse city."

I'd add only that as well as their other phobias, they espouse homophobic policies, too.
