Dear Editor,

IS Terry Fitzpatrick's latest rant final proof that he has fallen for the BNP's propaganda? Or is he really a 'closet' supporter? (Advertiser Website Letters)

The BNP is trying to remodel itself as not being racist, but standing up for the rights of working class whites.

They argue that racism does exist, but it's the whites who are victims by the 'politically correct' race relations lobby and self-denigrating whites who put foreigners and asylum-seekers first.

In fact, Terry Fitzpatrick uses the same language as the BNP! He should realise that those pressure groups and individuals he lambastes do not have much real power as the tabloids would have us believe.

Fitzpatrick does not attack racism or seek to find the issues really affecting blacks, Asians, whites, asylum-seekers and migrants alike. He only wishes to speak to white working class and argues how the 'blacks are the problem.'

That's the same thing the BNP does, now that it is not a 'racist' party.

In other words, racism is caused by 'anti racism' and the only way to deal with it is to ignore it or only speak to white victims.

The BNP won its first seat in the Isle of Dogs in the 1990s. Now it does not even field candidates in Tower Hamlets, opting for Barking & Dagenham instead.

Maybe Terry Fitzpatrick should learn from the anti-BNP campaigners who were successful here, before going to Barking.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The BNP did, in fact, field a candidate in Tower Hamlets at the last municipal elections
