First BNP Mayor elected in Lancashire

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Padiham Council, near Burnley, has voted for a BNP councillor to be their Mayor.

Hope Not Hate and the Bishop of Burnley are both opposing his appointment but residents seem to be accepting of the idea judging by the comments in the Daily Mail article.

No matter what you think of the BNP’s politics, Councillor John Cave was elected to Padiham Council by the residents of Padiham and the council can’t discriminate against any councillor because they don’t approve of their politics. ¬†Cave is a democratically elected councillor in Padiham and he has as much right as any other councillor to take his turn as mayor.

Democracy sometimes produces the “wrong” result, that’s the price you pay for political freedom.

    If the establishment had spent the entire post-WWII period looking after the English people, rather than the rest of the world, the BNP wouldn’t even exist. I’ve never voted BNP, and probably never will, but I can understand why people do, and I will not get holier-than-thou with them, unlike the pampered Guardianistas of this world. They’ve simply done what people all over the world do when mainstream politicians fail them – they turn to parties they would otherwise never even think about voting for. The establishment is simply reaping what it has been sowing for many years.

    What are his policies (in the context of Townhall, Englandshire)?
