British Peoples Party (2005)


British Peoples Party (2005)

The British People's Party, also known as "BPP - Putting Britons First" is the third incarnation of a name used by other Nazi political parties in the United Kingdom. It was launched on 18 September 2005 by Eddy Morrison and John G. Wood as a splinter group from the Nationalist Alliance, following what they saw as the unacceptably slow progress of that movement.

The party is committed to British neo-Nazism, white separatism, corporatism, the implementation of the "Fourteen Words", the expulsion of non-whites and Jews. It is very strongly supportive of Ulster Unionism and opposed to any concessions over Northern Ireland.

The BPP is led by Kevin Watmough and is largely dedicated to the legacies of British Nazis who pre-date the party, such as Arnold Leese, John Beckett and Colin Jordan. The BPP is in favour of nationalising the media and banks, supporting small businesses while dismantling multi-national ones, and of recriminalizing homosexuality. The BPP also denies the Holocaust. It applied to the Electoral Commission for official registration as a political party in October 2005. On 17 October 2005, the BPP was proscribed to members of the British National Party. [http://www.nationalistalliance.org/bppproscribed.html] On 27 October 2005, the party officially registered with the Electoral Commission as 'BPP - Putting Britons First'. [http://www.nationalistalliance.org/bppregistered.html] The BPP has two publications - "Vanguard", which comes out every month, and "Imperium", a quarterly magazine that is more theoretical.

The BPP stood a small number of candidates in the May 2006 council elections without winning any seats. The party did not contest the following year's elections as they claimed to have declared a 'truce' with the BNP [D, Williams, 'The Rest of the Right', Searchlight, May 2007, p.10] but continue to oppose the BNP for its rejection of the Nazi ideology.
