British National Party

Description

The BNP won its first seats in the European parliament in 2009, when Andrew Brons won a seat in Yorkshire and the Humber, and party leader Nick Griffin won a seat in North West England.

However, Brons resigned the BNP whip in 2012, and he has been involved in the creation of a rival nationalist party, the British Democratic Party.

Will the BNP manage to keep Griffin's seat, and win back Brons's? Or will the British Democratic Party split the nationalist vote? These questions will be answered in June 2014.

Result in 2009 for BNP
