With support for the BNP increasing, Britain is facing a move to the extreme right. "We'’re the sex pistols of British politics and we’v'e just got a number 1" cries Nick Griffin, leader of the BNP, after winning 2 seats in the European Parliament. Deemed racist by their critics, the BNP is riding a wave to the right in Britain - mainly on the issue of immigration. "No one minds a bit of immigration" says Derek, a BNP voter from Manchester, "but this is colonisation". Until recently the working class men of England's north were the country's core Labour Party voters. Now, they’re backing the BNP. The recent expenses scandal along with record levels of unemployment has cemented a belief that Labour has abandoned the working class. With a fifth of British voters now supporting the BNP, could a new political landscape soon be on the cards?
