The Independent’s Andy McSmith quotes from Clark’s interview with the Mail on Sunday a year ago,
‘“I didn’t really know anything about the BNP but they had come up in conversation a few times because they had just won some local council seats,” she said…. “I read their manifesto. I’m not too proud to say that a lot of it went over my head but some of the things they mentioned were the things I think about all the time, mainly mass immigration, crime and increased taxes.” ‘
__’The first item in the BNP manifesto is a pledge to reduce the non-white population of the UK through deportation and “voluntary resettlement”.’
