Better Together official promotion of the BNP?
While vegetating on the #indyref offerings, I stumbled across the above nugget of interest. This was taken, today 11/1/14, from Better Together Livingston's Facebook page. Not only do they reproduce the BNP's propaganda, but they add their support.
Pro-Yes campaigners have often alluded to the backward and right-wing nature of British Unionist politics. It must be rare though for an 'official' branch of Better Together, lead by ex-Trot Alastair Darling to actually leap into far-right politics with such glee. Loose cannons are to be found in all political viewpoints - however, is Better Together so desperate for support that they actively promote the BNP?
Is it Better Together 'policy' to "stop all foreign aid"?
The following graphic, I imagine, was meant to be a spoof of right-wing xenophobic BritNat politics. Maybe it too emanates from the 'grass roots' of Darling's campaign against progress?
