Tory MP Edward Leigh (pictured, far right), the red-faced chief ranter of the Cornerstone Group of wingnuts, will apparently tell a fringe (in the truest sense of that word) meeting today that Cameron’s cuddly policies risk alienating right-wing headbangers who would normally vote Conservative (yes, we are paraphrasing).
Interestingly, he will tell his audience that Tories may vote for the BNP despite that party’s “somewhat left-wing economics”. We have not been able to track down the full text of the speech, but we have asked one of our trained Tories to head along to “check against delivery” the context in which he calls the BNP a bunch of lefties.
Coincidentally, the Cornerstone Group has a pretty tough approach to immigration themselves. Oh, and a couple of the Cornerstone MPs have joined forces with BNP members to work on the Better Off Out campaign.
