No, the Tories are not the BNP

Despite being a notorious fantasist, rape apologist and occasional InfoWars guest, Craig Murray has a surprising amount of cachet amongst a segment of the left.

So I shouldn’t be surprised that his latest article Can Anybody Find Any Significant Difference Between May’s Policies and the British National Party Manifesto of 2005?” is gaining traction on social media, and being shared by lots of people who should frankly know better.

I’m not a fan of the Tories. But I’ve read the BNP 2005 manifesto.

A BNP RallyIt’s a vile piece of literature. The BNP aren’t comparable to any other UK Political Party – except their inheritors (Britain First), and their predecessors (the National Front and the British Union of Fascists). They’re a white supremacist party.

Some excerpts from the BNP 2005 manifesto:

  • Repeal all laws against racism:

” We would repeal the Race Relations Acts and all other restrictions on free speech in Britain.”

“We would abolish all politically-correct indoctrination of the police, teachers, and other public employees.”

“We would abolish all laws against racial discrimination in employment and the government bodies associated with enforcing them.”

  • Pass laws making it illegal to say racial integration is a good thing:

“A Clause 28-style proscription against the promotion of racial integration in schools and the media would be introduced.”

  • Legislate so that White Britons are first class citizens:

“we will also seek to emphasise the importance of the prior status of the aboriginal people [giving them] priority on housing and school places lists”

  • Mandatory gun-ownership:

“all law-abiding adults who have successfully completed their period of military service are required to keep in a safe locker in their homes a standard-issue military assault rifle and ammunition.”

  • Deploy soldiers to the Channel Tunnel:

“the first company of British troops to be withdrawn from Iraq on the day a BNP government assumes office would be redeployed to secure the Channel Tunnel and Kent ports against illegal immigration.”

  • Abandon all responsibility to non-white refugees:

“these refugees are simply not Britain’s responsibility and have no right to refuge here.”

  • End all immigration & deport ethnic minorities:

“To ensure that we do not become a minority in our own homeland, and that the native British peoples of our islands retain their culture and identity, we call for an immediate halt to all further immigration, the immediate deportation of all bogus asylum seekers, all criminal entrants and illegal immigrants, and the introduction of a system of voluntary resettlement whereby those immigrants and their descendants who are legally here are afforded the opportunity to return to their lands of ethnic origin” via “A massively-funded and permanent programme”

  • Bring back public flogging and the death penalty:

“We support the re-introduction of corporal punishment for petty criminals and vandals, and the restoration of capital punishment”

  • NHS to be ‘British only’

“all future British doctors and nurses – except for rare experts required to teach new skills and techniques – are recruited and trained within Britain. ”

… then we hit their economic stuff which is completely batshit.

The Tories are a right wing party. I disagree with them on basically everything.

But the BNP are white supremacists. The legislation they proposed in their 2005 manifesto wasn’t just ‘right wing’; it was openly racist.

There’s a MASSIVE difference between a party like the BNP and the Conservative Party.

There are many ways to criticise the Conservatives – but insisting that they are ‘just like the BNP’ is ridiculous. Murray should know better. The people sharing his article should know better.

    I agree they are very different. The BNP ideas are so extreme… I should have guessed but wow. I would never vote Tory but to suggest they are the same as the BNP is just helping to make the BNP seem more “normal”.
