The Euro-elections andresurgent nationalism.

W
e British like to think that ourdemocracy has been a modelfor the whole world and thatwe enjoy full liberties and freedom of speech. In particular, we often claim thatour legislative body at Westminster isthe “Mother of Parliaments.”It is therefore a great tragedy thatour country, like many other suppos-edly democratic countries in Europe, isbeing transformed without consultationwith its people. The massive changes toBritain, particularly those resulting fromimmigration, have been imposed on usby politicians without any mandate fromthe electorate. At the same time, anyonewho objects to these changes or has eventried to debate them is exposed to abuseand insults.Most journalists are circumspect inwhat they write. The National Unionof Journalists forbids its members toportray nationalists or patriotic peoplein a favorable light; indeed it urges themto portray us as unfavorably as possible.When newspapers refer to the wonderfulspeech on immigration Enoch Powellgave in 1968 (see “No Representation,AR, May 2001) they call it his “infa-mous” speech. It should more accuratelybe called the great speech, because thatis what it was.Nevertheless, a prominent parliamen-tary correspondent for the
 Daily Mail
 recently wrote:“Sunday, April 21,1968, was themoment our country yielded to thesorry creed of multi-culturalism. Thatevening, Edward Heath, leader of theConservative Party, telephoned EnochPowell and sacked him from the ShadowCabinet for making his infamous ‘Riversof Blood’ speech about race relations.That decision made it almost impos-sible for British politicians to criticizeimmigration for the next 40 years. Byslamming the desktop so hard on Pow-
ell’s ngers, Heath created a climate of 
political terror about immigration.”The desktop had been slammedbefore. In the general election of 1964,
Conservative candidate Peter Grifths
criticized immigration and went on toan astonishing win in the previously safeLabour seat of Smethwick, Birming-ham. When the new prime minister,Harold Wilson, went on to call him a“parliamentary leper,” the Conserva-tive leadership did not even come tohis defense. In fact, on election night,the then-chairman of the ConservativeParty, Lord Poole, expressed fury at hisown party’s unexpected win, since itwas due to having mentioned the taboosubject of immigration. The result of 40years of near silence is that the ethnic,religious, and cultural problems haveonly grown worse.The British National Party (BNP)was founded in 1982 to combat thesetrends but for some time it had littleelectoral impact. It held meetings formembers but its candidates usually gotno more than one or two per cent of thevote. It is always hard for a small partyto break out of that range. Even peoplewho agreed with us were often afraidthey would be wasting their votes.
The BNP won its rst council seat
in 1993 in a by-election in the east of London (this is the equivalent of win-ning a seat on a city council in the UnitedStates). The Labour Party inadvertentlyhelped us by reporting that its canvass-ing showed the possibility of a BNPvictory. Presumably, Labour hoped tomotivate its supporters by reportingthis grim possibility, but the effect wasto motivate ours. The BNP won by amargin of just seven votes, but a win is

 Letters from Readers
Sir — Prison authorities disallowedthe April and May issues of 
 American Renaissance
(“The Dangers of Diver-sity,” Parts II and III), claiming theywere “advocating racial hatred in sucha way as to create a serious danger of violence in the facility.” Kind of makesyour point, doesn’t it?I’ve received every issue of ARhere since 1999-2000. No incident hasever arisen, so I don’t know what hascaused the sudden turnaround. I’mappealing the decision to the warden,and, if necessary, to the Department of Corrections.Eric Schroeder, Lawrenceville Cor-rectional Center, Lawrenceville, Va.Sir — There is a pattern that arisesfrom your impressive collection of examples of the tensions inherent indiversity: blacks can’t get along withanyone. They are the group most ofteninvolved in your catalogue of racialviolence, whether in schools, prisons,or on the streets. They can’t even getalong with other blacks; your examplesinclude attacks by American blacks onSomalis and Jamaicans. You includeonly scattered examples of white/ Hmong, Hispanic/American Indian,and white/Hispanic violence, and NorthAsians hardly appear to be involved inracial violence at all. Does this mean thatif blacks were removed from the mix,the problems of racial violence associ-ated with diversity would be drasticallyreduced?The example of Hawaii suggests thismay be so. Hawaii has never had a whitemajority, but the mix is mainly white/ Asian. The native Hawaiians are a mess,
as are other Pacic islanders, but the
Japanese, Filipinos, Chinese, and whitesseem to rub along reasonably well.Carl Landers, Truro, Mass.Sir — I was glad to read in yourthird installment about “The Dangersof Diversity” that whites are suingsuccessfully on grounds of racial dis-crimination, but the entire situation isoutrageous. America was founded bywhites—we are the “posterity” men-tioned in the Constitution—and it shouldnot be possible for government agencies,businesses, and the odd black supervi-sor to “discriminate” against us, notbecause of some silly legal theory thatanti-discrimination law shouldn’t applyto us, but rather because they shouldn’teven have the
ability
. We gave themthat power and we must take it back. Weneed to get rid of the EEOC, diversitybureaucrats, discrimination law—thewhole shebang. Come up with objec-tive standards and let everybody sinkor swim on his own merits.Fred Froelich, Cincinnati, OhioSir — I enjoyed your May reviewof 
The 10,000 Year Explosion
but havea comment on one sentence: “Zulusand Danes presumably had a commonancestor about the time humans leftAfrica [50,000-60,000 years ago], butare now so different from each other thatstandard taxonomies might well classifythem as a separate species.”The common ancestor may be con-siderably more remote in time. I quotefrom
 Before the Dawn: Recoveringthe Lost History of Our Ancestors
byNicholas Wade:“Before people left for the worldbeyond, the human population in Africahad apparently fragmented, doubtlessby geographical distance, into sev-eral different populations. As alreadynoted, those who left Africa belongedto just one of these populations, thosedescended from the L3 branch of themitochondrial DNA tree. They carriedaway in their genes only a subset of theAfrican genetic diversity, meaning onlysome alleles of each gene. That factalone set them on a potentially differentevolutionary path.” (p. 186.)Tom Shuford, Lenoir, N. C.Sir — I was intrigued by the theoryin
The 10,000 Year Explosion
that ag-riculture selects for a different kind of personality than hunting. It makes sense:farming is a low-testosterone job that
requires patience and deferred gratica
-tion while hunting is a high-testosteroneactivity that requires violence and en-courages gorging. By this standard thepeople of the Fertile Crescent shouldbe the tamest on earth. Why do its cur-rent inhabitants continue to behave likehunter-gatherers?Caroline Connelly, Evansville, Ind.Sir — Thank you for your review of Gregory Cochrane and Henry Harpend-ing’s
The 10,000 Year Explosion

American Renaissance - 3 - June 2009a win, no matter how narrow. Unfortu-nately, the next year the BNP candidatedid not keep his seat despite receivingseveral hundred more votes, but this
rst victory gave the party much needed
encouragement and publicity.It was another seven years beforethe party again won a seat, and it is
only in recent years, since Nick Grifn
was elected chairman of the party, thatwe have begun to make real progress.We now have over 100 local councilseats, and are the second largest partyafter Labour in the London Boroughof Barking and Dagenham, wherewe hold 12 seats. In addition, sinceMay 2008, BNP member RichardBarnbrook has served on the LondonAssembly (see “BNP Candidate WinsSeat on London Assembly,” AR, June2008).We are committed to saving ourcountry through the political process,and we realize that a small party suchas ours can generally best push aheadby concentrating on one area at a time.We began by standing in local elec-tions, especially in local by-elections, inwhich there is just one race, rather thanin a general election in which everyoneis voting. This means our activists andsupporters can concentrate on a singlecontest.On June 4 of this year, when electionsare held for the European Parliament,the BNP has a chance of appearing on amuch larger stage. The Euro-Parliamentsits in Strasbourg and in Brussels, andmakes many of the laws that now applyto the United Kingdom. The electionsare by proportional representation,which means we can win a seat in theEuro-Parliament with a much smallerpercentage of the vote than would benecessary to win in our own House of Commons.The United Kingdom, has been di-vided, by order of the European Union,into 12 regions, nine of which are inEngland. In each region, elections willfollow what is known as the d’Hondtsystem of proportional representation,named after Victor d’Hondt, a Belgianlawyer who invented the system in the1870s. Each party puts up a list of candi-dates, and people vote for the party, notfor individual candidates. The system isso complicated that it is not possible toknow in advance how many votes arenecessary for representation, but it islikely that any party that gets as much as8 percent or so of the vote in one of thelarger regions could win a seat. If a partywins enough votes for two or more seatsthey go to the candidates that are second,third, etc., on the party list. This systemgives more opportunity to small parties
than does the traditional rst-past-the-
post system, in which a candidate in adistrict must win more votes than anyother. That is the method used in Britishand American elections.The largest Euro-election districtby population in England is calledthe South East region, which includesthe ancient English counties of Kent,Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire,Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. TheSouth East will elect 10 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) andit is my aim to be among them. Party
chairman Nick Grifn is running in the
region known as the North West, whereour support has generally been good. In2004, the party won 6.4 percent of theEuro-vote in that region, and we need
only 2 or 3 percent more for Mr. Grifn
to become an MEP. In April, our partycame in second with 23 percent of thevote in a by-election in Manchester, sowe would need less than half that levelof support in the region as a whole towin a seat.This election could therefore be
our rst chance to win parliamentary
representation, even if only to theEuropean Parliament. Of course, weexpect some day to send membersto the House of Commons, but the
rst-past-the-post system makes that
much harder.A seat or two in the Euro-Parlia-ment would not just send the Leftinto a frenzy. It would increase ourstature immensely. It would give usgovernment funding, which wouldhelp us for future elections, and wouldforce the media and public to take usmore seriously. There would be less
 justication for leaving us out of the
important political discussions that takeplace on television and radio.Also, MEPs from the BNP would bein a position to join other nationalists toform what is known as a “parliamentarygroup.” At the Euro-Parliament, it takesat least 25 members from at least sevenmember states with a similar point of view to form a group, but once it isformed, it gains various advantages andprivileges within the parliament. A na-tionalist group known as Identity, Tradi-tion, Sovereignty was set up in 2007 butbroke up just 10 months later.
And, nally, British nationalist MEPs
