Some time back, I got a copy of the British National Party's manifesto. It's a couple of years old, published around the time of the 2005 British general election, but I'm sure their positions have changed little, if at all, since then.
Much of the manifesto is actually sensible, but their foreign policy positions sound like something right out of the American far-left wing or far-right wing talking points:
National DefenceAny doubt of which political party Ron Paul would belong to if he were British?
We would have no quarrel with any nation that does not threaten British interests.
We will not act as the world’s policeman either for the UN, the EU or the US. We will maintain an independent foreign policy of our own, and not a spineless subservience to the USA, the ‘international community’, or any other country. We will restore the county regimental system and also withdraw from the European Union plans for an European Army. We will invest in creating an integrated defence structure that can respond to all 21st Century threats. Successive cuts in defence spending have left Britain ‘s armed forces perilously weak. We will boost Britain‘s armed forces to ensure that they are able to deal with any emergency, and defend our homeland and our independence.
- We will bring our troops back from Germany and withdraw from NATO, since recent political developments make both commitments obsolete.
- We will also withdraw all British troops with immediate effect from Iraq. We will never again involve British troops in any more American ‘ wars for oil’ or neo-con adventures on behalf of the Zionist government of Israel.
