This is what happens when you don't go officially and exclusively civic nationalist ALL THE WAY when you should have done. Jean Marie Le Pen was nagging Nick Griffin to do that way way way back in 2004.
But then the BNP is full of uneducated lower class racists and the Chairman too afraid of upsetting the plebs to even explain about the necessity for adopting a civic nationalist strategy.
Imagine having to explain the abstract concepts of "civic nationalism" and "strategy" to these lower class racists who only read the Star, or who can't even read.
Any talk of civic nationalism would mean a sell-out was taking place to these people. Too bad Nick Griffin didn't call their bluff and tell them to join the NF if they didn't like it in the BNP.
Too bad the constitution at 3.2.1 still says:
"Our party is a party of British Nationalism, both civic and ethnic, ... "
Too bad the idiots still don't get it when I tell them that if you say you are an ethno-nationalist you are advertising to the world the fact that you are racist.
"How many of you are ethno-nationalists ie racists as opposed to those of you who are not?" would have been a fun question to ask the Chairman on Newsnight.
What is more repulsive than an uneducated lower class racist?
An uneducated lower class racist who doesn't even know how repulsive voters find him.
It is as disgusting and repulsive as watching an ugly fat stupid slag behaving as if she thought she were beautiful and witty.
I know even this sordid compromise upset a lot of these old dinosaurs, but what surprised me was that the Chairman actually thought he could get away with this fudge. The concept of adapting to survive is a concept known only to the fittest, who survive, while the intellectually unfit and ill-adapted will fall off the wall, one by one, like the ten green bottles sitting on the wall ...
The difference between UKIP and the BNP is that UKIP people understand that they must say they are not racist and not even mention race at all, while BNP people still don't get it, or pretend it doesn't matter. It is the difference between being educated up to a certain standard and being able to handle abstract ideas and being a party of total and utterly disgustingly stupid plebs unable to grasp this simple concept, and it is this:
If people have the choice between joining and voting for a racist Eurosceptic party and one that declares that it is neither racist nor antisemitic Eurosceptic, they will choose not to be identified as racist or antisemitic.
It is now abundantly clear that civic nationalism has won the argument, and this was demonstrated when ex-BNP members have told me that they intend to vote UKIP this year and the next.

UKIP was established in 1993. Once established, it effortlessly sailed past and beat the BNP, from 0 to 105,722.
Only plebs vote for plebs and even then they hate doing this.
It's how you express yourself and the words you use.
Civic nationalism has won the argument. The conclusive evidence is when ex-BNP activists such as Mike Newland, Kevin Scott, Eddy Butler and Peter Rushton acknowledge that they have no choice but to vote UKIP and when they cannot think of a single successful ethno-nationalist party in Europe.
