Oldham Election Result - Lessons to be Learned

The Oldham result was disappointing but not without merit. Lessons needed to be learned for future reference.

A pre-election understanding of the area is paramount, otherwise we are essentially playing a hit and miss game.

This involves understanding both the ethnic make-up of the area in question but notably also the additional socio-economic constitution of the area.

There are major lessons that have been learned.

In truth we needed to experience this bad result in order to convince both ourselves and the general activist base of the need for improvement and introduction of more sophisticated electioneering strategies.

The next few months will be interesting indeed.


  1. Agree. Take what you can from it and learn David.

  2. Perhaps the BNP should reconsider some strategies, like making the reconstruction of British identity and community a top priority. The BNP (rightfully) made issue of the exploitation of ethnic English girls, and yet that wasn't enough to spur the English voters to take action. Perhaps it's because the British largely subscribe to the same individualism that plagues us Americans? Namely that if it doesn't affect me and my immediate family, it's not my problem.

    This extreme individualism needs to be altered with a more communitarian mindset, and I think the BNP should push aggressively for social change, ie, getting the native British to see themselves as a people, something worth preserving. You can't hope to win seats without that.
