BNP vote collapses in Walsall byelection

I just received this piece of good news from Unite Against Fascism. Well done to all involved.

The BNP vote of 141 in the Rushall- Shelfield ward of Walsall this Thursday 11th November was just 9% of the poll. While still 141 too many, it is dramatically down on the 648 (21%) they achieved the last time they contested the ward in 2007 and from the 815 (26%) they gained the year before that. The result should further demoralise the already weakened fascist organisation in the Black Country. This election was another defeat for them. Thanks again to all who helped in that.
