Assembly election will cost BNP big time
Sunday, April 08, 2007
There had better be some beef in the BNP coffers. The party, under the leadership of Nick 'Defend Rights for Whites' Griffin, has been rattled by revelations from ITV's recent poll that they are set to win less than 1% of the vote in May's assembly elections.
Of course, a party needs to secure more than 5% of the vote to be reunited with its deposit. And with the BNP fielding more candidates than ever before, they might be left hoping for a sudden demand in jingoistic paraphernalia to cover their losses. Who knows, if England do well in the Rugby World Cup perhaps all those God-awful flags will make a re-appearance.

Somehow I expected better from you.
Try these figures and remember May 3rd is coming and so wishful thinking will not come into it.
"Whereas the ITV Wales’ poll (of whom exactly – Welsh Assembly Members?) “indicates that support for the British National Party is currently running at less than 1%” the REALITY of the situation is that the BNP has averaged around 8% across the five local by-elections it has contested over the last four to five months! That is the reality of the situation that the TV programme makers have chosen to ignore in favour of their “poll”!!"

But those by-elections were not in Wales. The BNP stand to lose £2,500 in deposits on May 3rd.

People were asked whether they intended to vote BNP just like they were asked about any other party.
I'm sure Labour would love for the figures to have been taken from the council by-elections in the Rhondda, or Plaid from Rhos-on-Sea. But that ain't how it works.

X on the ballot paper is what counts. Indicators would show 7-8% of the vote likely for the BNP.The old three tier parties and Plaid Islam may yet be rudely shaken.
