Topic - British National Party

The British National Party (BNP) is a far-right political party formed as a splinter group from the National Front by John Tyndall in 1982. The BNP restricted membership to people it referred to as "Indigenous Caucasian", effectively excluding non-whites, until 2009 when its constitution was challenged in the courts on grounds of racial discrimination. After a vote by members in a February 2010 extraordinary general meeting the BNP dropped this policy, with chairman Nick Griffin saying that it will now "accept anyone as a member providing they agree with us that this country should remain fundamentally British". The High Court has found that the new constitution is still "likely to commit unlawful acts". - Source: Wikipedia
