I'd love to hear from some Yorkshire folk about how them and/or their neighbours voted in one of the most vile parties of the last few decades and why?

Previously I speculated as to why because of all the self segregated Asian communities in the likes of Leeds and Bradford therefore the BNP preyed on alot of ignorant people there because of this and the tensions in the region.

But I'd still like to hear it from those who are there and why they think this happened.

Charming eh.

10.1million votes from an Electorate of 31million so 33%ish turnout.

At time of posting: 72 EU Seats up: CON: 19, UKIP: 10, LAB: 8, LD: 8, GRN: 2, BNP: 1, PC: 1

Huge swing away from Labour but not massive mostly towards UKIP and some to Tories.

Theres already a thread on the BNP.

I dont think they need any more publicity.

Too late, many councillors, one London representative now one MEP.

Sweeping this wave of nationalism under the carpet doesn't achieve anything.

Very depressing news. Times like these I'm glad its still first-past-the-post in a general election, as undemocratic as that is...

if you actually read their manifesto its a damn good one - I think you will find that people who dont know their extremist background have voted for them purely on their manifesto and to be honest i think maybe this government needs something like this to make them start looking at what is going on and how people are getting fed up with everything going on in this country

It's their business who they vote for none of yours. So why should you have the cheek to challenge them as to why they voted for the BNP?

I wonder how many who voted for them were told about that particular requirement from their favourite political party?

Who's challenging???

I'm just curious as to why it happened, if someone can make me understand what makes people vote for these scum.

This undercover programme highlighted this parties grotesque nature in recent years which is far from it's public face.

I'm very saddened by this, I live in a village in Yorkshire which unfortunately has a small town mentality.
Most people I know around here are rascist/homophobic etc and I think it's a worse problem than many people think.
What makes me laugh is the BNP have been banging on about the second world war, about how the British soldiers were heroes etc.
But they were fighting a fascist nation with the same vile views as the BNP!
There are a lot of positives things about this country, yes it has it's faults but the BNP are not the answer, they just add to the problem :(

It's personal stuff who you vote for. It's rude asking who someone voted for.
They won the seat end of. Deal with it.

and no, i don't support the BNP.

Edit: Oh, go ask for illegal stuff on this site, and see if you can ask what you want.

At this time nearly 1million votes were cast for the BNP, so from 10million votes, that's nearly 10% of the votes cast.

The BBC Electoral Programme did say that all the letter writers shouty people were the ones who voted hence the big swing to UKIP, I suspect it's mildly similar for BNP as I don't think 10% of the votes going to BNP doesn't mean 10% of the 31million potential electorate would vote for them,
