67. BRITISH RACISTS ATTEND "PEAK OIL UK" CONFERENCE
Report by New Era Investor:
Tuesday, April 26, 2005
Though attended by a large number, the "Peak Oil UK" conference organised by Depletion Scotland on the 25th April had a familiar look to it. On view were representatives from the media, environmental groups and oil-related academia as well as concerned individuals such as myself. Also, the sight of Colin Campbell and Matt Simmons as speakers and even Mike Ruppert in the audience gave it all a kind of kindred feel to it all.
However, one individual stood out a mile and in complete contrast to these groups and that was Nick Griffin, chairman of the British National Party. For non-British readers, a description of the BNP is in order. Being a far right wing party, they are somewhat similar to Jean Marie Le Pen's National Front party of France which has enjoyed recent electoral successes.
Their distinctive theme is "Britishness" with the emphasis on "whiteness". Source*
The racist credentials of this political party are evident in their membership requirements.
