BNP paves way to admit non-whites
British National Party leaders have
voted "overwhelmingly" to ballot
members on changing its constitution to
allow non-white members to join.
Leader Nick Griffin said he welcomed
the change, which the party had been
"moving towards" for years.
If the new membership rules are
approved, the BNP would be brought in
line with the recent Equality Bill.
The party's "closed for business" talks
in Hindley Green, Wigan, came on the
first day of its annual conference.
