Foreign Affairs

The BNP claims it would:

  • Reach an accord with the Muslim world whereby they will agree to take back their excess population which is currently colonising this country, in exchange for an ironclad guarantee that Britain will never again interfere in the political affairs of the Middle East or try to dictate to any Arab or Muslim country as to what their internal government form should be; and
  • Maintain an independent foreign policy of our own, and not a spineless subservience to the USA, the ‘international community’, or any other country.

With regard to Europe, a BNP government will:

  • Resolutely oppose the single European currency;
  • Support the overwhelming majority of the British people in their desire to keep the Pound and our traditional weights and measures.

Challenge Foreign Affairs

The Muslim Council of Britain replies:

We are living in a globalised world where interactivity between cultures and society is the norm. The BNP’s idea to negotiate with Muslim countries to take back British Muslims exposes the BNP rhetoric not only as weak and xenophobic but also oblivious to the new global realities where cross migration and cultural cross fertilisation is mainstay of strong democracies.

The BNP not only refuses the respect the contribution the well established British Muslim community have made in the arts, education, business, politics and science, but are complicit in taking this great country back into the dark ages.
