A Jewish man who claims to have “no interest” in politics is standing as the BNP candidate in a local election.
Richard Blackmore, from Kensal Rise, is standing for the Fryent ward in Brent, the first BNP candidate for the borough in 30 years.
Mr Blackmore, who is retired but would not state his age, described himself as of “Jewish extraction”.
His late mother’s maiden name was Gluckstein.
He said he joined the BNP because he was “disgusted” with New Labour and the BNP was an “alternative”.
