In the meantime... looks like Blair is finally doing something constructive. Will probably get him brownie points with the Islamic Coalition, even though I expect neither Nick Griffin nor the British Nationalist Party are going to be going anywhere soon.



Tony Blair's Labour Government is looking for leadership of the British Nationalist Party to close its doors, at least until tensions with the East cease, the BBC reported on Thursday. The request is not an outright ban on the organization, but word on the matter is traveling through political corridors with such urgency that suggests a formal crack down may be imminent.

BNP’s Nick Griffin, who once described Islam as a "wicked, vicious faith", has accused Blair's Government of attempting 'a fascist play' to unfairly silence the party's members right to congregate, not to mention free speech.

However Mr. Blair is not only inflamed that background checks of all the suspected 7/27 high jackers reveal some sort of association with the fringe organization, but that prominent party members continue to make provocations against the attacked countries. In August the BNP called for a ban on "ALL MUSLIMS from flying out of (and in to) Britain."

Mr. Blair repeated emphatically in his address to reporters that though the BNP may be the self described representative of 'white working class men', Great Britain exists in a world where no country can remain isolated, and that the UK in particular receives complementary benefits from its military allies and economic partners abroad.
