It seems that Nick Griffin and Andrew Brons are squaring up for a right old battle for supremacy of the British far right.
A few hours ago Brons announced on his website that he was leaving the BNP. Now we hear news that one person, considered loyal to Brons, has been removed from Griffin's European staff. We also understand that Griffin is huddled with his few remaining supporters trying to figure out who is still loyal to him and who will be feeding information to the Brons camp.
Meanwhile, the four Parliamentary by-elections coming up in the next few weeks offer Brons' camp a chance to flex their muscles. The BNP has already announced candidates for Manchester Central and Corby and East Northants, both of which will be contested on 15 November. The two other parliamentary by-elections will be in Croydon North and Middlesbrough but neither of these have been called, though the Croydon election is also likely to be in mid-November.
Croydon and Middlesbrough will almost certainly be contested by Brons' new party, as they have supporters in both areas, but it remains to be seen if they can act quickly enough to find candidates and start campaigns in Manchester and Corby.
HOPE not hate will be campaigning in each of these areas.

It would be interesting to see how much the English Democrats try to cosy up to him, as electorally at least they are the main far right organisation in Brons' region. Though the NF might wish to launch their own brown nosing initiative, thus continuing the factional warfare within British fascism.
