Nick Bourne, Mid and West Wales AM, and Tory leader in the Welsh Assembly, is a happy, clappy Cameronian kind of Conservative.
For example, he is on record as saying:
"There is no place in a modern, decent, tolerant society for the politics of hate and discrimination… Welsh Conservatives believe that everyone has a right to live in dignity, find work, and access services regardless of… race, religion… or sexual orientation."He has also described the BNP as a 'nasty, mean, distasteful and grubby bunch of sub-human flotsam and jetsam' on his personal blog. And, when he received a great many criticisms of such a personalised attack, he refused to apologise, saying:
"I have no intention of withdrawing any of the comments I made about the British National Party and its membership. Nor will I apologise for making them. The BNP is a divisive, dangerous organisation which exists to spread fear, hatred and bigotry. There is no place in a civilised society for their views and people from all political parties and none should stand together against them."Bourne has also said this:
"The growth in votes for the BNP is worrying. The message of racial division, which they put forward anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic, and anti those Britains who are of immigrant descent, is rightly something which the four main parties abhor and condemned on Equality Day during the election campaign…As far as I know no British Nationalist organisation 'bases its appeal on division and hatred of people based on the colour of their skin or their racial origins,' and I'm sure Bourne will know this.
Any political party that bases its appeal on division and hatred of people based on the colour of their skin or their racial origins is destined ultimately to fail…
We must make sure the BNP does not get a foothold in Welsh or British politics."
The BNP et al would put those who made this a country that everyone else on the planet wants to come to in first place, not last. The Bournes, of course, as is amply evidenced by the behaviours of the three main parties since the end of WWII, couldn’t give a damn what the British people want or deserve. They could not care less whether party policy shuffles the working-class Brit to the back of the queue for everything his immediate forbears willed to him.
Those whom the British Nationalist truly despise can be found inside Westminster, the Stock Exchange, the media and the anti-British PC Crowd. The only person that he could, perhaps, be portrayed as 'hating' within the immigrant communities, is the immigrant criminal. You know, that man or woman who begs and pleads to be allowed in and then, once established, puts two fingers up at British society and takes that society for everything he or she can.
After one of Bourne’s anti-BNP outbursts, Phil Edwards, a party spokesman, said:
"I think he should be put in the stocks, tarred and feathered and driven out of town."Which, compared to Bourne's 'nasty, mean, distasteful… grubby bunch of sub-human flotsam and jetsam' outburst, isn’t exactly what you might call 'over the top.'
