British National Party Launches its European Election Manifesto

The manifesto deals with the BNP’s main election pledges, which are as follows:

- We will campaign for Britain to withdraw from the EU.

- BNP MEPs will always vote in the European Parliament in the best interests of Britain and the British people.

- We will seek to expose and oppose EU corruption, incompetence, fraud and waste.

- We will work closely with MEPs from
other countries that share our aims and beliefs, in order to be more
effective and successful.

- We will maintain the highest
standards of probity and integrity. In this regard, all BNP MEP
candidates have signed a pledge to donate ten percent of their pre-tax
salary to local cultural groups and activities in their regions. This
would mean payments to groups celebrating our national saints’ days.

- We should have British control over
British borders so as to stop unlimited and uncontrolled immigration
and reduce crime and terrorism.

- Britain, not the EU, should decide who lives in this country.

- Anyone not born in Britain who commits a crime here should be deported.

- British citizens should only be
extradited where they have committed a genuine offence abroad and there
is sufficient evidence against them.

- Our armed forces should be under British control and serve British interests.

- We must keep the Pound and control over our own economy.

- We oppose the UK’s payment to the EU - next year this will cost British taxpayers around £9 billion.

- We support the ability to trade with other countries when this is done fairly and on equal terms.

- ‘British jobs for British workers’: employers should be obliged to provide jobs and training to British workers.

- We need to eliminate unnecessary and bureaucratic EU regulations which cost British businesses around £75 billion per year.

- Britain must withdraw from the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) which costs each family around £450 per year.

- Britain must withdraw from the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).

- Britain must have exclusive control over its territorial waters.

- Britain must retain control over its oil and gas supplies.

- We should restore the use of Britain’s traditional weights and measures.

- The British parliament and British courts should be independent of any foreign body.

- The government should stop the
closure of Post Offices, especially in rural areas, and there should be
no privatisation of this public service.
