Buckingham Palace must withdraw its invitation to the Nazi BNP

Following the revelation of the BNP invite to the Queen garden party, UAF released the following statement:

Unite Against Fascism, the national campaign against the British National Party (BNP) and other fascist organisations, today called on Buckingham Palace and the Greater London Authority to withdraw the invitation to the Queen's annual garden party issued to the BNP's Richard Barnbrook.

Barnbrook says he will bring the BNP's leader Nick Griffin as his guest to the garden party. Griffin has a criminal conviction for incitement to racial hatred for publishing a neo-Nazi magazine that claimed Hitler's Holocaust did not take place.

London mayor Boris Johnson and Darren Johnson, chair of the London Assembly, have both expressed their opposition to Barnbrook bringing Griffin to the royal event. But they have not expressed any objection to Barnbrook being invited in the first place.

This latest invite comes shortly after Barnbrook was invited to and attended the official launch of the England 2018 football World Cup bid. It marks a disturbing trend of official bodies turning a blind eye to the true nature of the BNP and treating the party as if it were a legitmate and acceptable organisation.

In fact the BNP is a racist, fascist organisation dedicated to creating an "all-white Britain". It declares that black and Asian people in this country are "racial foreigners" and calls for them to be "repatriated". Those who extend official courtesies to the BNP are helping to make the organisation's vicious racism appear respectable.

Weyman Bennett, joint national secretary of Unite Against Fascism, said: "Buckingham Palace, the London mayor's office and the Greater London Authority should stop prevaricating and rescind Barnbrook's invite immediately. Anything less would be a slap in the face for ethnic minorities in Britain and an insult to anyone who defends our multiracial society.

"If they do not, Unite Against Fascism will host an 'alternative garden party' on 21 June to demonstrate against the fascist BNP -- and against those institutions that would rather hobnob with Nazis than take an unequivocal stand against racism."
