The BNP seem to try and mix ('nativist') workerism, welfare-stateism, and
nationalism, with the usual militarism, racism (racist immigration
policies), colonialism (re Ireland), and police-state authoritariainism
(their insinuation that British children are not taught their own history,
and that teachers have no authority, is laughable). Their stand on full
employment policies (for 'native' British workers) may appeal to a lot of
disaffected and historically priveleged English workers. Of course they
obfuscate how all this is to be achieved (presumably, since they are rabidly
anti-European, by keeping Britain the aspiring poodle of yankee
imperialism). My question is: how realistic (that is how 'radical') is their
apparent commitment to military Keynesianism, including their commitment to
full employment, in the face of British capital's commitment to gobalisation
(integrally aided and boosted by imperialist expansion)? If the BNP are seen
to be pursuing vaguely socialistic measures by British workers, how do we
stop the latter flocking to them? Isn't this blend of appealing to working
class people and middle class business alike in the name of an expansionist
nation exactly like the Nazis in 1930s Germany?
