Nothing British attack the BNP because of its 'Protectionism' - but seeing as I was one of the people who drew up the policy, I will explain it for the Blue Baron Bethell and his sidekick Maurice.
The BNP policy on protectionism is based on what we call 'Ethical Capitalism' which is a form of capitalism that is based on strict environmental, social and ethical principles which do not exploit workers, children, the natural environment, communities, society or rights of workers in foreign nations - both in the UK and abroad.
The endless list of faulty goods imported into the West that have injured and killed people, the environmental destruction caused to developing nations, the corruption caused by the West in developing nations, the child labour and slavery - all these things must be stopped and in order to do that we intend to prohibit any imports into the UK from nations that exploit their own people and environments.
This is the antidote to the poison of globalism, a free market model that places the people and the environment before profits for the global corporations and corrupt governments.
The Tories in Nothing British About the BNP, and their left wing lackeys, all support the globalisation of the planet - the Tories because it makes them rich when they import in cheap consumer goods to peddle to people and the Left because a global free market means the free movement of people around the world to act as surplus labour.
Any political party that does not adopt our model of Protectionism and Ethical Capitalism is a party that is in the grasp of the global slave traders and eco-destroyers.
The BNP does not want cheap consumer goods peddled in the UK that make the rich richer and the poor in Britain and abroad poorer.
The BNP are the only moral and ethical political party in Britain, as only we put the interests of our people - AND THE INTERESTS OF ALL PEOPLE AND THE GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT - before the interests of the global exploiters.
Here is what our manifesto says below ;
Globalisation and the Protection of British Industry
The BNP opposes globalisation which is extremely harmful to our nation for two reasons:
- It results in the importation into the West of millions of immigrants (in the form of “cheap” labour) from the Third World; and
- It transfers technology, manufacturing and industry to the Third World. This in turn causes the exploitation in labour in those nations and ultimately the collapse of our own living standards due to the inability of our industries to compete with that “cheap” labour.
The BNP also objects to the existence of disagreeable practices in the Third World, often tolerated by globalist corporations in the pursuit of international profit.
Such examples include the employment of child labour, the use of political and other prisoners to produce goods, lax environmental rules that would not be tolerated in the West, poor protection for workers, the absence of trades unions and employees’ representation, onerous working hours, an absence of social security systems, health insurance and so on.
Clearly, this places overseas enterprises at a considerable commercial advantage and facilitates cheap competition.
We are also aware of the restrictions many countries impose to protect their home industry, either in the form of red tape or direct tariffs.
We shall therefore impose selective tariffs on the import of goods from the Third World. Only those foreign nations and corporations who agree to abide by our strict social, environmental and ethical trading policies will be permitted to export their goods freely into the United Kingdom market.
To allow industry and commerce to adapt, tariffs will be imposed gradually through the years of our first term in office.
We are wary of the burden this may place on British consumers. In consequence, to avoid any general upward price movement, we shall reduce VAT (or such equivalent as we may introduce) with a view to securing revenue neutrality.
As already observed, some 60 percent of the world’s trade occurs as internal transfers within multinational corporations. This is detrimental to the environment and the measures outlined in this manifesto will diminish this proportion.
Not least, the option of closing down British manufacturing or services in favour of the Third World will become an unattractive proposition.
Finally, whilst we oppose globalisation, we would observe that the process creates disequilibrium within developing countries where self-sufficiency is eroded in favour of cash-crops, for example, at an expense to the environment.
