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.
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 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.
