Welsh Assembly candidates in Alyn and Deeside have joined forces to condemn the British National Party (BNP).
A joint statement was issued today (Tuesday) by Lib Dem Pete Williams, Conservative John Bell, Labour’s Carl Sargeant and Plaid Cymru’s Shane Brennan.
They said: “We recognise the right of the BNP to stand in democratic elections, however we all utterly condemn the division they bring.”
But BNP candidate Mike Whitby has hit back at the comments.
He said: “These four parties have identical policies when it comes to the future existence of the Welsh and British people
“That is why they unite against the BNP, which is the only party that supports the right of the Welsh people to remain Welsh and the British people to remain British.”
