Administrative / Biographical History

The British National Party (BNP) was founded by John Tyndall in 1982 as an offshoot of the National Front. The BNP aims to ensure that the 'British people retain their homeland and identity' through such measures as the halt to all further immigration, opposition to the single European Currency, and the selective exclusion of foreign-made goods from British markets and the reduction of foreign imports. The BNP is headed by its National Chairman Nick Griffin (1959 - ), who sits upon the Advisory Council with the Deputy Chairman, national officers of the party and organisers from the party's regions. The Council deals with the party's financial and agenda issues. Current BNP publications include: 'Asylum seeker leaflet - say YES to putting our own people first!'; 'Europe leaflet - say YES to restoring Britain's freedom!'; 'Crime leaflet - say YES to clamping down on crime!'.
