Mr Odious 1 steps aside for Mr Odious 2 - and will be equally as obnoxious and narrow-thinking as his previous incarnation. No doubt it will appeal the to knuckle draggers, but with support for the BNP sinking fast, it won't make much difference in the long run, as most can see both him and his 'party' for what they really are.

Congratulations Adam. In terms of our wonderful country, please continue to endeavour to protect against preventable evils, in which our statesmanship has clearly failed. You will no doubt be expecting the use of 'the magic words', racist, Nazi and so on from those who deserve what's coming to them, to hinder your progress. Proved right time and time again, good luck with your efforts to prevent genital mutilation, halal slaughter, Afghanistan, Muslim grooming and rape, cheap foreign labour, etc etc etc etc. Which your opponents clearly condone.

Racist bigot? I am a Gulf War veteran btw. Please quote a racist BNP policy. The High Court couldn't find one. Are you a better judge or are YOU the bigot? The magic words. Pathetic.
