When the BNP leaflet came through the door I read it carefully to check that I found the BNP as repulsive as ever – and I do. Although the invitation for a Guest Blog of up to 1000 words on this site is open to them as to all other candidates.
However, the BNP claim to be the REAL green party – and that interested me so I did check the BNP website. There are some interesting policies – such as the move to organic and low-energy farming (which won’t endear this party to most farmers) and approval for wave, tidal and solar energy.
However there are some very big flaws in this ‘green’ agenda. The BNP is keen on building an airport in the Thames Estuary which is a complete ‘No-no’ as far as I’m concerned.
It also seems that the BNP doesn’t believe in climate change – why is it that the Right find the science so difficult to accept? The BNP ‘firmly rejects the “climate change” dogma while being fully conscious of the urgent need to combat all real pollutants in the environment.’.
As I said, I would never vote BNP so it wouldn’t matter whether they had the best environmental policies in the world, the rest of their agenda is repulsive as far as I am concerned. But they get a few commendations for telling me more about their environmental thoughts than the other candidates have to date. Still won’t vote for them though.
