Fascist boss will vote UKip and always has

Kevin Scott: He wanders as lonely as a fascist toilet salesman

The leader of the extreme far-right British Democratic Party, an extreme splinter from the BNP, says he will vote for UKip in the future as he has done many times before.

Kevin Scott, the long time fascist from Gateshead (via Sunderland) who was once sacked from his job as a toilet salesman for B&Q because of his political activities, has led the tiny British Democratic Party (BDP), since it was formed earlier this year. The party’s President is the MEP Andrew Brons, who split from the BNP last year.

Despite making big noises about how they would soon replace the BNP as Britain’s biggest fascist party, the BDP has achieved actually very little. They only managed three candidates in this year’s County Council elections and had to launch their London branch in Kent due to the lack of interest in the party from former BNP members  in the capital.

Scott’s position as the leader of the BDP has come under a lot of scrutiny of late from others in the party. He has not been helped by the apparent disappearance of his close friend Ken Booth from Newcastle, who is supposed to be the party’s book keeper and membership secretary but has not been seen or heard of since June.

To the chagrin of the party President, Booth and Scott appear to have been running the party out of some old shoe boxes in their homes, with neither showing any interest in building the party. Indeed, one of Scott’s reasons for such little activity has been the rise of UKip, which he has claimed makes building the BDP an almost entirely pointless exercise in the current climate.

News that Scott has voted UKip and will continue to do so, will also upset his former friends in the BNP. Scott was often a poorly performing candidate for the party.

Scott has however decided against joining UKip, on account of the party’s “proscription notice against any former BNP members.” Writing on his facebook page, Scott also cites one of the reasons that Scott does not engage in entryism to UKip, the party he seems to prefer the most.

“Our only hope, in my opinion, is that UKip paves the way for something more radical, in due course.”

I guess he knows that won’t be the British Democratic Party, then.
