This video is a glimpse into the tensions in England over immigration policies — an uncomfortable comparison to our own growing domestic conflicts. The video shows a fight between some Asian men and British National Party parliamentary candidate Bob Bailey in Barking, England.
When one of the men spat on Bailey, he hit the man and a fight ensued.
Earlier BNP leader Nick Griffin was pelted with fruit and had to leave a campaign site.
Griffin insisted: “The more people in the media talk this up as an issue, the more silly kids on the streets will be inclined to take the law into their hands.” Well, it may be difficult not to talk about the controversy with candidates and citizens rolling around on the streets.
At one time, the British National Party (BNP) restricted membership to people of “Caucasian origin” but now accepts “anyone as a member providing they agree with us that this country should remain fundamentally British.”
