The BNP (British National Party) is a far right British National Party which states that it does not have and will not have any non-white or Muslim members.

According to its constitution, The BNP, according to its constitution is, "committed to stemming and reversing the tide of non-white immigration to England. It seeks to restore, by legal changes, negotiation and consent the overwhelmingly white makeup of the British population as it existed in Britain prior to 1948. It seeks voluntary incentives for immigrants and their descendants to return 'home'. It advocates the repeal of all anti-discrimination legislation.

The BNP asserts that there are biological and racial differences that determine the behaviour and character of individuals of different races. They reject the idea of the equality of human beings as expounded by many--the framers of the constitution of the USA and Guru Nanak among them.

The party claims that preference for one's own ethnicity is a part of human nature. In the past the party was overly anti-Semitic , but now it has focused on criticism of Islam rather than Judaism. The party has said that they do not consider the Jewish, Hindu or Sikh religions to have a significantly detrimental or threatening effect, although the BNP does not accept practicing Sikhs, Jews and Hindus as culturally or ethnically British. They do, however, have members with Jewish ancestry. The BNP has been known to work with extremist Hindu and Sikh groups opposing Islam Hindu and Sikh extremists in link with BNP

In 1988, The Sunday Times revealed that Holocaust News, a publication that claimed the holocaust was an evil hoax, was being published by the BNP's then deputy leader, Richard Edmonds, on behalf of a BNP front organisation, the Centre for Historical Review, and was being distributed by BNP members. John Tyndall, the party's leader, said he was not involved in the publication but that it had his full support.

The 2002 Channel 4 documentary Young, Nazi and Proud featured hidden-camera footage of the then BNP youth leader Mark Collett stating his admiration for Adolf Hitler, and stating, "I'd never say this on camera, the Jews have been thrown out of every country including England. It's not just persecution. There's no smoke without fire."

In 2006, the party's deputy chairman Scott McLean was shown on the TV documentary "Nazi Hate Rock" making Hitler salutes at a white-supremacist cross-burning ceremony where intensely racist songs were sung and jokes made about Auschwitz the notorius Nazi 'Concentration' camp.
