An EU report has recommended that organisations which it describes as ‘racist’ be dissolved and has described the BNP’s electoral success as ‘unpalatable’.
While not specifically calling on the BNP to be dissolved, it is clear from the context of the report that this is what is intended.
In a report released on Tuesday by the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI), for the Council of Europe, said it was “greatly concerned” about the democratic election of two BNP members, together with the “substantial local support bases in certain regions”.
The ECRI asserts that emergency legislation adopted in 2002 should allow the UK government to dissolve legal and democratic organisations such as the BNP.
Aside from proposing anti-democratic manoeuvres, the ECRI makes the following recommendations:
1.) Increased funding for Trevor Phillips’ race Gestapo; the heavily criticised Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC).
2.) The construction of more pitches for gypsies and travellers.
3.) Undocumented (bogus) asylum seekers should not be considered as criminals.
4.) Further witch-hunting of the employees within the Home Office and UK Border Agency.
5.) Provide more legal aid for employees that play the race card.
The commission is chaired by Latvian Nils Muiznieks, the author of several anti-nationalist publications, not a surprising choice given the federalist nature of the Council of Europe.
