Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
BBC NEWS | UK | BNP 'threat' to Labour in Europe

The British National Party could pose a major threat to Labour in the upcoming European elections, Labour's deputy leader Harriet Harman has said.

The BNP "are a bigger threat than they have been before", she told the Independent newspaper in an interview.

She also outlined Labour's efforts to counter the BNP ahead of elections for the European Parliament in June.

Labour is "focused on the BNP in this election in a way it hasn't been previously," she added.

'Below the radar'

Labour is using the slogan "fairness not fear" in areas where there is heavy BNP activity, instead of its national banner "winning the fight for Britain's future".

The labout party's indifference to poverty issues has simply fed this problem. Now they claim they are uniquely placed to fight the very probelm they caused, kinda sound like Brown claiming he is able to fight the financial issues resulting from his stewardship of the treasury.

Why do trouble causers believe they make peace ?

keep to the Fen Causeway
