Andrew Brons resigns from BNP

The Yorkshire and Humber MEP Andrew Brons has announced he has resigned from the British National Party.

He cites feeling marginalised and changes within the party as his reasons behind his decision.

The current Chairman of the rump BNP has described me in a text to his attack dogs as ‘vermin’. More recently, he described me as a ‘state agent’ – a description he attached to me twenty-six years ago but which obviously did not apply when he appointed me as the lead candidate in Yorkshire for the European elections.


He says he will "continue to promote the policies on which I was elected in debates in the European Parliament and in releases for the British and foreign media."
