Good news for the BNP

There are couple of news items that should cheer the BNP today. First the CPS has declined to prosecute Chairman Nick Griffin for his tweets in the case of the two homosexuals wishing to share a bed in a Christian lady's B&B - despite the Cambridge Constabulary trying hard to put him in the frame. This is not really unexpected - the case was a non-starter: Mr Griffin didn't even publish a real address!

And second, the BNP has beaten the Tories and Lib Dems in the Rotherham by election. In fact if you add the Tories' and Lib Dems' votes together (a la coalition) the BNP still beat them. The results in full are:

Sarah Champion (Labour)  9,866 46.25%
Jane Collins (UKIP)      4,648 21.79%
Marlene Guest (BNP)      1,804  8.46%
Yvonne Ridley (Respect)  1,778  8.34%
Simon Wilson (Con)       1,157  5.42%
David Wildgoose (EngDem)   703  3.30%
Simon Copley (Ind)         582  2.73%
Michael Beckett (LibDem)   451  2.11%
Ralph Dyson (Trade Union)  261  1.22%
Paul Dickson (Ind)          51  0.24%
Clint Bristow (Ind)         29  0.14%

Labour majority          5,218 24.46%
Turnout                 21,330 33.63%

It must be said that the turnout is rather low at 33%. However it is still a very respectable result.
