London Assembly member Richard Barnbrook has left the British National Party. He now sits as an Independent on the London Assembly.
One would like to think he has had some intellectual conversion that had suddenly made him aware of the evils of National Socialism. More likely is that it is a response to his humiliation when he attempted to challenge for his Party leadership and could only get 23 votes. He had already lost his council seat in Barking and Dagenham.
