Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think we still have a rump of the old 80s AntiNazi League here. And the BNP types are only popular in the sinkhole areas - no one else wants them around.

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.
