Germany and France are hypersensitive to these things. The British and Italians not so much.
And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
By the time the BNP were anywhere close to winning power in the UK the minority areas here would be arming themselves for civil war - which is possible, but I don't think it's likely.
We have much more of a problem with cross-party authoritarianism. NuLab is just as keen on destroying basic civil liberties as the Tories are, but so far the Lords have kicked their arses - up to a point.
It's the constant pressure for surveillance and security which is the biggest issue. If fascism comes it won't be set up by blue collar racists but by Oxbridge-educated civil servants.
Among other things, Sarkozy is saying the French media needs more concentration - considering right now, two thirds of the press is already owned by weapons makers, that's a worrying proposal.
Sarkozy is so sensitive about things, after closing army bases in Lorraine, he proposed that the German army should set up shop in said bases...
And is there need to talk about the 28000 people that have to be deported before the year ends ?
