The British National Party (BNP) is a far-right political party in the UK, led by Nick Griffin.
In 2009 won two seats in the European Parliament, with leader Nick Griffin and Andrew Brons being elected as MEPs. Since Brons' defection, Griffin is the BNP's only MEP.
It was formed in 1982 from the remnants of the old National Front.
The BNP claim around 7,000 members, but anti-fascist groups like Hope Not Hate estimate paid-up members number between 2500-4000.
During the 2010 General Election, the BNP received 1.9% of the vote and failed to win any seats.
