Jewish man stands for BNP in Brent

    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”.

    He said: “I’m not that interested in politics. They asked me to stand. I couldn’t care less. It’s not a serious attempt. Lots of people go into the polling booth and don’t know what they are doing — and this is the same.”

    He said he did not realise that BNP members had denied the Holocaust in the past and said that he had “nothing whatsoever against Jewish tribes”.
