The Veneer Is Very Thin

Hmm. The BNP are declaring ‘The British’ to be descended from:

“Celts, Anglo-Saxons, Danes, Norse and closely related kindred peoples”

My first reaction was to joke that they were anti-Beaker People, but read that list again - no Romans? I’m no fan of the Roman Empire myself, but that’s insane even from a nationalist perspective. No French? Are they forgetting 1066 too? There have been Jewish communities in Britain for over a thousand years, yet they aren’t on the list either. Most nationalism involves a selective view of the past, but this takes the biscuit.

That list isn’t about being British at all - it’s another way to say “Nordic Aryan only”. The BNP’s bigotry isn’t just pro-‘white’ or ‘anti-black’, it’s simply the Nazi party’s concept of “racial purity”.
