BNP ditch plans for Ireland's north

The far-right British National Party has abandoned plans for an electoral assault on Ireland's north, it has emerged.

Strategists have ordered members in Belfast and surrounding towns to concentrate on financing its future advancement plans in Britain.

The policy contradicts a pledge by BNP leader Nick Griffin to stand at least five local government candidates during his last visit to Northern Ireland nearly two years ago.

And a fierce opponent of the party regarded as neo-Nazi extremists, SDLP Assemblyman John Dallat, was elated by the re-think.

He said: "The BNP or their sidekicks the National Front did us no favours and did everything possible to ignite racism.

"Thankfully for once the main political parties gave them the once up the posterior and I only wish the same level of co-operation was available on all forms of sectarianism or racism."

Well said Mr Dallat. The BNP are a truly horrid party based on an awful ideology and their presence in Irish politics is most unwelcome.

There aren't many issues that Irish nationalists and unionists can agree upon but I'm sure we can all agree that this is very good news and that the BNP can offer nothing constructive for this island.
