Election UK: BNP Wiped Out in Barking & Dagenham

The BNP was hoping to take Barking & Dagenham:
Hope Not Hate held its second day of action in Barking and Dagenham in east London , where the BNP leader, Nick Griffin, is standing against Labour's Margaret Hodge, and the far-right party is also hoping to take control of the council.
The BNP had predicted it would create a "political earthquake" at this week's general and local elections, claiming it was on course to win two MPs.

This would indeed have been a "political earthquake" had it happened - a major London council with an anual budget of £millions under the control of the far-right. But it didn't happen. The BNP didn't even manage to hold the 12 seats they did have - they've got a big fat zero!

Sit back, grab some popcorn and wait for the in-fighting to begin continue...
