British National Party forced to admit non-whites
Nick Griffin, the BNP leader, blamed Britain?s 'undemocratic Orwellian equality laws' for the change Fiona Hamilton, London Correspondent
The British National Party is poised to give up its whites-only membership policy after a legal challenge accusing it of racial discrimination.
Nick Griffin, leader of the far-right party, indicated yesterday that the BNP would accept members of different ethnicities for the first time, blaming Britains undemocratic Orwellian equality laws.
In a statement published on the BNPs website, Mr Griffin said that the party would have to adapt or die, even though amending its constitution would stick in the craw of all dedicated nationalists. The party is considering the change in light of an injunction being sought by the Equality and Human Rights Commission, which claims that the BNPs membership rules breach the Race Relations Act.
Any alteration to policy would mark a significant moment for the party, which since it was founded in 1982 has only accepted white members.
His push to open up membership is likely to cause factional rows within the BNP, with the partys most conservative elements resisting such change.
The BNP currently restricts its membership to indigenous Caucasians, which it defines broadly as Celts and Anglo-Saxons.

Whatever. I have no sympathy for the BNP, as they are (literally) a bunch of National Socialists.
True, but here in the US we have Freedom of Association
"Reginald, you have the wrong map here you silly old leg-before-vicket English person."
You most certainly don’t have freedom of associaton in America. Well maybe if you’re non-white you do.
It seems like they made a mistake as to where to form their political party. :D
Well, the First Amendment provides for it.
Freedom of Association is supposed to be party of the Constitution but white people are currently not allowed to declare their neighborhoods “for whites only”.
There are plenty of black only organizations in America, no?
I remember reading Malcolm X's book, in which some deluded, white-guilt, white female travelled all the way from Boston(where else?), to come to New York to beg him to allow her to join his outfit(this was after he'd split with Elijah Mohamed), and Malcolm X telling her, no, its a blacks only organization. This was all before he was shot dead by his ex pal Elijah Mohamed's assassins.
Force will be used against the whiteys whenever they try to assert their nationality.
Funny, don't see anybody doing that to Mugabe and Zimbabwe.
England seems to be the only land that does not have protections for indigenous peoples.
They’re making fun of you over at LGF. http://littlegreenfootballs.com/article/34595_BNP_Supporters_at_Free_Republic
Thanks for telling me.
Little Green Footballs is a website for politically correct fairies. I wish they wouldn’t censor every little thing they disagree with so I could post over there and give them an ass reaming (which they would probably enjoy).
Freedom of Association disappeared with Civil Rights (Uncivil Rights for Whites).
If you dimwit LGF supporters think your arguments are on such sound grounds, why the need to censor so much hmmmm?
Why don’t you bring your pansy asses to
and see how well you do peddling your liberal crap.
