The BNP have removed their London Assembly candidate Nicholas Eriksen (now there's a good old British name for you !) from their list as a GLA candidate after load of press furore and it even being brought up in Prime Minister's Questions today.
The question is, why did it take the press and PMQ's to get the BNP to act ?
Did they diagree with what he said yesterday ? If so they seemed very quiet about it or has the negative press coverage and the fact that it would destroy their female vote (yes, women can be racist too) make them realise that he had to go.
After all, one BNP candidate described Mr Eriksen's views as "totally and absolutely abhorrent" but the BNP's deputy leader Simon Darby had not seemed that bothered and offered an excuse to Mr Eriksen by suggesting thatthe comments had been taken "completely out of context".
