Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I wanted to read this diary but did not have the stomach for it for some time. It's the same old, same old for me. Though, I find the warriors' rhetoric and "the traitors' iron grip" ballistic from a leader even among his European peers.

A question: does the BNP stage marches or other public shows of numbers in your area? If yes, are there any counter-events organised?

The BNP do hold rallies etc.  Campaigns are quick to petition against them and will counter protest if they go ahead.  They target certain areas where they can make gains with the anti -immigration stance.

Yes, the last one I went to, there were six BNP members marching with a flag, surrounded by 200 policemen to ensure their right to march. the counter demonstration consisted of 300 protesters.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
