The British National Party (BNP) is losing support in wake of its leader's bankruptcy and its far-right policies. Despite earning two spots in Parliament in 2009, other parties are gaining ground such as the English Defence League. The EDL isn't the best party either, but its anti-Islamist stance is gaining support in wake of recent violence perpetuated by Muslim extremists in Britain.
No, as of today the English Defense League is not large enough to be a worthy opponent to the British National Party. In time however, and with the right moves, this party can gain popularity and become a worthy opponent, but right now the National party just has too much power.
Without a doubt, the English Defence League is not a worthy opponent to the British National Party and would not fare well against that party in an election of any sort. The fact of the matter is that the British National Party is quite powerful, and a better competitor than the English Defence League is necessary.
The English Defence League is not a worthy opponent to the British National Party. They have some pretty outlandish and extreme views and are set in their ways. They would not be a good opponent because of their views and extreme hatred. They still have strong feelings about the war.
No, the English Defence League is not a worthy opponent to the British National Party, because the English are still wary of the events of World War II, and they will not let an organization that is so extreme take over their party politics. The EDL is a fringe group with some pretty extreme views.
