Europe turns into Zimbabwe; unintentionally hilarious

Trade unions want the right under UK law to expel British National Party activists - and deny them membership - as part of Labour plans to check the electoral advance of the far right.

Labour backbenchers, supported by all the biggest unions, will unveil the plan on Tuesday when they put forward an amendment to the Employment Bill that would allow them to ban racists. The proposal - labelled 'Stalinist' by the BNP - comes amid concern that it could win as many as three seats in next year's European Parliament elections and make strong gains in council elections.

Labour MPs, many of whom feel threatened by the BNP's advances in their constituencies, are concerned that the party is encouraging activists to infiltrate unions in order to spread subversive, racist messages in the workplace.

Union member: Well John, welcome to the union!
BNP member: Thanks Dave! You heard about them African-Americans?
Union member: I FOUND AN INFILTRATOR! HE'S SPREADING HATRED!

The BNP is actively opposed to Marxist theory and workers' unions though. If a BNP activist joins a union, it's probably because he intends to muck about.
Doubt it happens very regularly though; this just looks like a cheap point-scoring exercise between two of the most 'mature' sections of the British political system.

Obsolete Marxist: "LOL, the PM says you aren't allowed to join our club!"
Reactionary Nationalist: "Didn't want to, anyway. Your club's stupid!"
Obsolete Marxist: "Yeah...well... You CAN'T!!  Even if you really wanted to!!!"
Reactionary Nationalist: "Fine, you guys are losers! I'm going to go and tell the Daily Mail that you guys are discriminating agains- Oh.. Oh yeah...."

The BNP is opposed to unions that act as politically correct puppets to the state. It has no qualms with worker rights and the party is quite socialist.

It even supports and has helped to create a union affiliated with them called Solidarity.

What is their opinion of Unions which are politically correct of their own accord?

The BNP is expelled from such unions, so what do you think? I've even told you they have helped create a union. Rub those brain cells together, quickly.

what do you think?
Thanks for asking: I think the BNP are the worst example of lowest common denominator politics, who think nothing of acting in direct contradiction to their own rhetoric because they are sure that their own supporters are not bright enough to figure it out. You?

I think they have an intelligent, realistic perception of democracy and so think nothing of acting in direct contradiction to their own rhetoric because they are sure that their own supporters are not bright enough to figure it out.
