EDL leader Stephen Yaxley Lennon has this afternoon endorsed the British Freedom Party and has stated that he will not be leaving the English Defence League.
The BFP which mainly consists of disenfranchised BNP members, announced the tie up this afternoon after the EDL's 'way forward' conference in Birmingham.
Stephen Yaxley Lennon who use to be a fully paid up member of the BNP can now no longer deny links with them.
The BFP is headed by ex UKIP member Paul Weston and their policies are not too dissimilar to those of the British National Party:
The objects of the Party shall be to defend and restore the freedoms, traditions, unity, identity, democracy and independence of the British people, to establish full sovereignty over all our national affairs via restoring the supremacy of the British Parliament, to withdraw from the European Union, to promote democratic British nationalist principles, to promote the social, economic, environmental and cultural interests of the British people and to preserve and promote the ancestral rights and liberties of the British people as defined in the British Constitution.
Weston recently tried to rationalise the actions of mass murderer Anders Behring Brievik on his blog
Breivik was driven to mass murder in his own mind because he felt he was no longer represented by the political process; that his opinions either counted for nothing or that he could be jailed for even voicing them.
More as we get it.
