BNP and NF Chaos: Time for Oswald Mosley's Vision Splendid

The British National Party (BNP) has recently expelled Ex-Chairman, Nick Griffin from membership of the Party he once led, after he failed to retain his seat in the European Parliament, representing North-West England. The BNP vote collapsed dramatically during the European Elections in Britain, and was decisively eclipsed by UKIP. The once strong BNP, which had 10,000 paid up members at its peak, is now riven by acute divisions and factional infighting, between the Griffinites and supporters of the new BNP Chairman, Adam Walker. Ironically, Griffin had previously expelled the BNP's founding Chairman, John Tyndall in a similar coup.

Also, the British National Front (NF) is now split yet again between two rival factions; one led by Kevin Bryan in the north and south of England, the Midlands and Scotland, and the other led by Ian Edward, based in London and Essex. In times past, the Front could boast 17,500 card carrying members during its heyday in the 1970's, but is now a shadow of its former self.

Both the BNP and NF, and indeed other 'Nationalist' parties in Britain, are hampered by the ‘Committee’ system, while Sir Oswald Mosley's pre-war British Union and post-war Union Movement were organised under clear Leadership, which prevented damaging internal splits and democratic chaos. 

After the Brother's War, Mosley stated that he had gone "beyond both fascism and democracy" to a new synthesis based on European Unity. It should be born in mind that Mosley was such a brilliant Leader, a superb thinker and inspiring orator, who generated such devotion from British men and British women, that internal splits within the Mosley Movements were almost unheard of. Mosley welcomed debate and contributions to policy from Union members, but in the end the final decision rested with him. 

When William Joyce left the BU to form his own National Socialist League, only around 60 or less Blackshirts joined him, while British Union enjoyed the support of 40-50,000 British patriots loyal to Mosley. On one occasion, an 'European Union of Fascists' split from UM during the 1960's, but the EUF was short-lived, only numbering around a couple of dozen members, based in Brixton, South London. Previously, during the late 1950's, John Bean left Mosley's Union Movement and formed the National Labour Party and later the mark II BNP* with John Tyndall and Colin Jordan. Tyndall and Jordan then split from Bean's BNP, to form the National Socialist Movement. 

The NLP, BNP and NSM were always small organisations compared to UM, which could put 1,000-5,000 Mosley supporters on the streets for marches and open-air rallies in Trafalgar Square. Mosley meetings packed out Kensington Town Hall, Birmingham Town Hall and the Manchester Free Trade Hall, during the 1950's and 1960's. Tyndall later came to regret his

previous photo-shoots dressed in a "Nazi" uniform alongside Jordan, stating on television during the 1970's: "I did associate for a time with an extremist organisation, and this did prove to be unwise. "Jordan went on to form the British Movement in 1968. In contrast, Mosley's Action Press uniform was a thoroughly British uniform, and based on the Guards of the British Army. After the war, Sir Oswald wrote in his autobiography 'My Life' that the full Action Press uniform had been a mistake, while the BU could have gotten away with the wearing of a simple Blackshirt:

"... I should have known that while we could have got away with the simple black shirt, the uniform made us too military in appearance and would create prejudice. The old soldier in me got the better of the politician."

The BNP, NF and UKIP are all negatively anti-United Europe, while Oswald Mosley campaigned tirelessly and courageously for the new Creed of  "European Socialism", "European Worker's Syndicalism", and with the patriotic and pro-European Aim of "Britain for the British", "Europe for the Europeans" and "Britain First in Europe a Nation", an Idea of the future whose time has come.

"We love our countries, but we must extend that love; the ideal and the practical alike now compel it. The extension of patriotism: that is the necessity and that is the hope. The new patriotism will extend to embrace all of like kind, but will not destroy the values of its kind by seeking the unnatural mingling of the old internationalism."

- Oswald Mosley, 'The Extension of Patriotism: The Idea of Kinship' (January 1947)

* The original British National Party was formed during 1942, "to obtain an honourable peace for our Empire." The mark I BNP published a newspaper, 'British National News' and contributors included ex-Mosley supporters such as Elliot Verdon-Roe. In 1943, the Party changed its name to the English National Association.
