Tuesday April 29 - Thursday's election
2:46pm Tuesday 29th April 2008 in News
THE BNP are not a mainstream political party, but a bunch of extremists stirring up hatred and dividing people on the basis of where they were born and the colour of their skin.
I'm the first to say we've got more to tackle crime, strengthen our borders and show ordinary hard-working families we're on their side, but the BNP's simple slogans don't have the answers.
Make no mistake: Voting the BNP is totally at odds with what it really means to be British, and the great British values the rest of us share such as democracy and decency, freedom and fairness, tolerance and equality.
They do not believe what normal decent Dudley folk believe.
They believe Black or Asian people can never be British even if they were born here or have served in the forces.
They oppose any racial integration and even mixed marriages. They believe ethnic minorities should be second class under the law.
They believe that people should be given preference in the jobs and housing market, and even in choice of schools on the basis of the colour of their skin, regardless of their ability, talents or contribution.
They even believe people like Ashley Young or Rio Ferdinand should not be able to play football for England or that Kelly Holmes could not represent her country because of the colour of their skin.
No sensible decent people believe that, so show the racists where to go on Thursday and vote against the BNP.
